I’ve never really understood “Hardcore” as a term, as the music sounds like other genres I’m more familiar with. Rotting Civilisation, to me at least, is a thrash-punk album with a lot of other genres on top. On their Facebook page Septic Tank describe themselves as “Punk, noise and low grade metal”. Continue reading “Septic Tank – Rotting Civilisation – Album Review”
“So, just the other day I made this album with NWO and Just One Fix and shit on it, I’m hoping one track might do real well on MTV called “Jesus Built My Hotrod’ then I woke up with a mild headache and my beard had gone grey. Somehow 25 years had gone by, it was all a blur. I hope nothing bad happened, you know.
And then I turned on the news….”
Al’s back, and he’s really, really pissed off with the state of AmeriKKKa in general and a certain be-wigged president in particular. Whether AmerKKKa is ready for Ministry is another question – but were they ever? Like everything they’ve ever done this is not an album for the aurally squeamish.
Fall out over the Nazi Pug case continues and much of the focus is on Twitter where various comedians argue mainly on behalf of the defendant Mark Meechan. They include Ricky Gervais, David Baddiel, Stephen Fry and Jonathan Pie.
This Youtube video (NSFW) by satirical entity Jonathan Pie presents the case for the defence perfectly.
I clearly remember the government telling us at the time that the ‘hate crime’ legislation in the Communications Act would not be used to curtail jokes. In fact I found a quote from then Home Secretary David Blunkett writing in the Guardian in 2004: Continue reading “Nazi pug – grossly offensive.”
I write this on International Women’s Day 2018 and those of you who follow me on Twitter will know that I often take a critical view of such things. But do not get me wrong, I do not believe women to be inferior to men. Instead, I believe that they are paid a disservice by those who seek to represent them and this is the source of my regular protests. Continue reading “Women – our Equals”
If you love King 810 for their extraordinarily effective violent output alone then give this one a miss. This is an EP full of ballads with David Gunn’s voice at the forefront, backed by brass ensembles, low key piano and delicate muted drum work. It seems from the content that Mr Gunn’s heart has recently been broken – I think of the whole thing like a sequel to the gorgeous duet Bad Man they released a couple of years ago. Continue reading “Review – Queen EP by King 810”
Wish I could say I was in here at the start about 5 years ago but I have to admit this is a new one for me. A song “Anyway the Mind Flows” appeared on my Spotify Release radar, I liked the title (any way the window blows, do you see?) and listened. Then I listened to the Finnish band’s whole album (of which Anyway… is the final track) and their whole back catalogue. More of that another time though (It’s very good) this is a review of their latest, The Horse and Other Weird Tales. Continue reading “Review: The Horse and Other Weird Tales by Jess and the Ancient Ones”
So this woman takes her children to see Little Mix, she’s deaf (which given the ‘band’ might be seen as a blessing), she demands an interpreter, threatens court, the organisers relent, the concert happens, the woman moans the support acts have no interpreter and takes the organisers to court. Continue reading “Disability rights meet a grade A cunt.”
How deluded must these people be to bring up Russia as a way to protect themselves against defence cuts? If Russia attacked plucky little Britain let’s face it, we’d be fucked. But at the same time, as a NATO member we’re protected from that non-threat by the other countries in the alliance, including the USA. Continue reading “Russia – the Angry Bear?”
