Blue Cheer - Just A Little Bit

Blue Cheer was an American rock band that initially performed and recorded in the late 1960s and early 1970s and was sporadically active until 2009. Based in San Francisco, Blue Cheer played in a psychedelic blues rock or acid rock style, and are also credited as being some of the earliest pioneers of heavy metal, with their cover of "Summertime Blues" sometimes cited as the first in the genre.They have also been noted as influential in the development of genres as disparate as punk rock,stoner rock,doom metal,experimental rock,and grunge."Blue Cheer" was the name of a variety of LSD made by chemist and Grateful Dead patron Owsley Stanley and the band was probably named after that, although the name existed earlier, as the name of a laundry detergent after which the LSD variety itself was named.

Billed as a follow-up to James' debut, Selected Ambient Works 85–92, the album differs in sound by being largely beatless ambient music. James claimed that it was inspired by lucid dreaming, and likened the music to "standing in a power station on acid.

IDLES - COLOSSUS

At a point of uncertainty, IDLES bring you concise carnage. At a time of lies, IDLES bring you honesty. At a time of body shaming and Photoshop, IDLES bring you a visceral barrage of joyous bile. At a time of The Kardashians, IDLES bring you a story of working hard for what and who you love. In a time of polarised politics and murky waters; IDLES and bands like them are needed to remind people that it's ok to dance and laugh and sing in the face of adversity.

Civic - Selling, Sucking, Blackmail, Bribes

CIVIC aren’t the first Australian band to find inspiration from the rowdy sounds of The Saints and The Dead Boys but few have been as on point as the Melbourne five-piece at nailing their snarling spirit. Jim McCullough, Lewis Hodgson, Darcy Grigg, Roland Hlavka and David Forcier have played in a bunch of quality bands including Leather Lickers, A.D Skinner, Drug Sweat, Pregnancy Scares, Whipper and Cuntz. But with CIVIC, they mix loud 70s gutter rock and hardcore aggression to create a squalling hot mess. Late last year, they all crammed into a small radio studio to perform a hustling live set on my radio program Teenage Hate . It was wild and sweaty performance and I’ve been eagerly awaiting some recorded material since. Today is the day as we premiere “New Vietnam”, the title cut from their upcoming debut record. Led by the wild vocals of McCullough, who by day works as a furniture removalist, and Hodgson’s furious guitar leads, the song gallops at a speedy pace. As Jimmy howls “Tell you what I am baby, tell you what I am” you can almost feel the weight of shitty dressers that he hauls up and down people’s staircases.

Sortilège - Sortilège

Sortilege is part of group of bands that started playing heavy metal in France in the early 80s. The band was founded at that time by the Dumont brothers (guitars and drums) under the name “Blood Wave” and when Christian “Zouille” Augustin joined them as a lead singer, they took the name Sortilege (which means spell). Around 1982 they had already made a name for themselves in Paris’s metal scene, by releasing their first demo tape which included 4 songs, two of which where early versions of “Sortilege” and “Metamorphose”, as well as an incredible version of “Delire D’Un Fou”, in which Augustin keeps climbing the notes without even catching his breath. The demo starts with the band’s same named song and shows it has a pure influence in it’s metal music by the Lords of the scene; such as Priest and Maiden and a definite characteristic the band has even for the years to come is Zouille’s unbelievable vocals.

Little Ann - Deep Shadows

Little Ann (born Ann Bridgeforth; 22 March 1945 – 26 January 2003)was an American soul singer. Her recording career was short-lived but her work was 'rediscovered' shortly before her death. Originally from Chicago, but growing up in the small town of Mount Clemens in Michigan, "Little Ann" Bridgeforth performed regularly as a singer, including at her cousin's club, Michelle's Playroom. When she was getting gigs elsewhere, she changed her name to Little Ann - how she was known within the family, as the youngest of seven brothers and sisters. In 1967 in Detroit, she recorded ‘Deep Shadows’, produced by Dave Hamilton, but it was not released, and was almost lost to history.
