Uggghhh wanted to do this weekly but things get in the way and have been slowly doing this piece by piece but its probably slightly out of date. As any news in this might be something you might have heard two weeks ago so apologies but no harm checking it out in case you missed it. Out today is the new album of The Chisel - What A Fucking Nightmare LP there was a slight delay in shipping but copies are being delivered today so make sure you order yours as copies are getting low.
Record Of Dis Week: Night Fever - Dead End12"
Copenhagens Night Fever new LP out on Svart Records came out last week 2nd February mixing a blend of old school hardcore with heavy metal. I seen it described as NWOBHM meets intense K-Town hardcore with sharp clean vocals which makes them front and center that are carried on lots of guitar licks and solos on some absolute furious hardcore makes the record unrelenting. Think Poison Idea, Death Side and NWOBHM
This is hardcore rock n roll and 'Dead End' 12" is an absolute raging slab of wax.

SCOWL - HOW FLOWERS GROW 12"
I have been trying to get in copies of SCOWL - HOW FLOWERS GROW for a while but kept missing it as it sold out that quickly finally have got copies for distro so make sure you get one if you had been asking for it previously. Hailing from Santa Cruz, CA, hardcore band Scowl has burst onto the scene as one of the most authentic young voices in the genre, influenced by everything from '80s hardcore, punk, and oi, to modern, alternative pop. The band has made a name for themselves with songs that are as reflective and dark as they are fun.
I thought a little section of what we have been listening to or a playlist would expose even more music to you. But I didn't want to do a Spotify playlist as Spotify doesn't help punk. So I am just going to highlight a few things I have been listening to this week and its not all crust punk and Oi!. Sometimes stuff is in distro other times it aint if it is in distro I will link to the record and their should be an embedded player their for you to listen or you can buy the record.
