Now On The Table: Kronstadt, Youth Avoiders, Bleakness
KRONSTADT - Quai De L'ouest LP & KRONSTADT - S/T LP Lille punks are back with another dose of 12 tracks of catchiness on Quai De L'ouest. Also in their 'S/T' LP KRONSTADT offers some great punk-rock, heady and melancholic but also straightforward and catchy. A bunch of French punk bands from the 80's may come to mind while listening to this as well as more recent stuff.

BLEAKNESS - A WORLD TO REBUILD 12" living up to their name Bleakness hymns in a raging post-punk or almost cold wave and terribly dancing way. FFO The Estranged, Spectres
