When Bay Area pop punk outfit Tsunami Bomb came to a close in 2005, drummer Gabe Lindeman and guitarist/vocalist Jay Northington were left without a band, but not without their desire to keep playing music. It just made sense for the friends to continue writing and practicing together, and so that's what they did in an old woodshop in Petaluma, CA. They christened the project Nothington in the spring of 2006 and posted some demos online, though at that point, they still had yet to figure out what exactly they wanted to do with the music. A few weeks later, the duo hooked up with guitarist/ vocalist Chris Matulich (whose own punk act Enemy You had been idle for the last few years), and with the final addition of bassist Mike Hicks (a vet of the local scene), Nothington was complete and ready for action. The quartet signed to Los Angeles based "BYO Records" that summer and hit the studio. Channeling acts closer to post-hardcore emo and pop punk likes: Leatherface, HDQ, Social Distortion and Tom Waits, their Southern tinged punk first appeared on wax via the "One for the Road" 7" in late 2006, released through local indie Left Off the Dial. Their full-length "in the end" dated to 2017 february and was issued through label "Red Scare Records".

Country:  UK
City:  Leeds
Label:  Boss Tuneage
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  10
Time:  33 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Post Hardcore























"the eternal sea" is the second album by Leeds’ Jaded Eyes, who is a new band, feature members who have been active in the hardcore punk scene for many years, in bands such as Voorhees, The Horror, John Holmes, Dead Pets, Sex Maniacs, Geoffrey Oi!Cott and many many more. Following on from their amazing live shows and good reviews for their debut "Gods and monsters" album back in 2013, the band have continued to impress, sharing a collective love of the "Dischord Records" sounds of the likes of Fugazi, Dag Nasty and Bluetip and mixing them with the home grown UK guitar driven punk sounds of the likes of  The Damned, Stiff Little Fingers and The Clash. "Gods and monsters" is in my Top 10 favourites of all our releases, and with "the eternal sea" Jaded Eyes have somehow managed to surpass that, and conjur up a contender for album - (and make no mistake , this is an album, not a disparate collection of songs) - of the year already (*Boss Tuneage Records)

THE FALL































"the rough trade singles box"
Year: 2002
Country:  UK
City:  London
Label:  Universal Music
Format:  5 x CD
Tracks:  14
Time:  45 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Avantgarde         Punk






















Post-punk band from Greater Manchester, UK. Late 1977 active to date. Formed in 1977, they've released around 50 singles, 30 studio albums, and well over 50 live and compilation albums (although it seems like more). In August 2004 they recorded their 24th John Peel Session. The band has gone through numerous personnel changes over the years (there have been well over 30 different line-ups so far), and since July 2007 consists of Mark E. Smith, Pete Greenway on guitar, Dave "The Eagle" Spurr on bass, Elena Poulou (Smith's current wife) on keyboards, and Keiron Melling on drums. In 2014, Daren Garratt became a full time member as a second drummer. Elena Poulou retired from the band in 2016.











From The Fall Online website: "On the original pressing of the box set, the versions of Container Drivers & New Puritan on CD 5 were the album versions from Grotesque and Totale's Turns respectively, not the John Peel session versions that appeared on the original 7" single. This was due to initial difficulties in obtaining clearance from the BBC for the use of those session recordings. Later pressings have the correct John Peel session versions. There is nothing to visibly distinguish the different pressings. All stuff recorded from 1977 to 1980".

NO MORE LIES


































"seeds of enthusiasm"
Year:  1998
Country:  Catalonia  (Spain)
City:  Sant Feliu Guixols
Label:  B-Core
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  8
Time:  24 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Post Hardcore



















These three guys from Sant Feliu de Guíxols, Costa Brava, have one sane obsession: not submitting to anyone's authority. And that includes recording albums when they want to and not when they should to follow any regularity, and playing when no one expects them to play or leaving us without their gigs when we expected them. Unpredictable and free, they were born 10 years ago and have delighted us with three albums only: "Seeds of enthusiasm" (1997), the unspeakable "][" (2002) and this unwritable "41º46.5'N 3º1.9'E" (2005). Uncomfortable for conformity.










In the gaps between, Santi Garcia's agenda as a producer gives infinite resources to his already brilliant skills as guitar player and singer. And the combination of them with the astonishingly powerful base by hyper active Maxim's bass and hysterical drumming by Roger gives as a result something like an angry bulldozer fed up with highly melodic fuel. Santi's experience as a producer with first-line bands such as Standstill, Tokyo Sex Destruction, The Unfinished Sympathy, Madee, Delorean, etc., and his learning period at Engine Studios in Chicago, USA has given to him a reputation which is now as high as the huge respect that hardcore-punk audience has for No More Lies after years of tough playing around Europe, crashed vans and hard floor sleeping.










Their close relationship to international bands such as Favez or One Man and His Droid (bands which Santi produces) give them even more prestige in our scene. And that's totally reasonable, because though being that irregularly active, we know that every time they put hands to work, result doesn't fail: a true blaster. Songs that will make you wake up from your nice sleeps and make you run until the beaches of Sant Feliu, and dive and yell to fishes that our best punk rock band is back in town.

Formed in 1980 and discontinued in 1983, Minor Threat is considered one of the most influential hardcore punk bands ever. They released one full-length and three EPs. After breaking up, frontman Ian MacKaye resurfaced in Fugazi. Originally released in 1981 as two 7" Ep's the first album of Minor Threat is a true classic in the punk-rock history.  Formed in 1980 and discontinued in 1983, Minor Threat is considered one of the most influential american hardcore punk bands of the early 80s. They released one full-length and three EPs. After breaking up, frontman Ian MacKaye resurfaced in Fugazi in 1983 and continued his work with the prestigious label "Dischord Records". Minor Threat and few bands more (Bad Brains, Teen Idles, SOA or Government Issue) were part of a small wave of new kids and bands in washington DC, many of whom were not into drugs and alcohol. Some of the bands made mention of this in their lyrics, and Minor Threat’s song "Straight Edge" coined the phrase that is now used to describe a drug and alcohol-free lifestyle. Ian MacKaye considers straight edge to be just his personal ideology and doesn't even like the straight edge movement or judge non-straight edge people. But few years after straight edge became as a movement and 80´s later appeared an extreme group called "hard-line" which its members were vegans and radically intolerants with other kind of way of life. Frankly strictly musical Minor Threat is not an exceptional band in aspect, its style is very simple and almost amateur. A kind of play punk-rock faster with melodical voice, but even in Washingtong there was a band very more interesting at all: Bad Brains. In another coast of atlanthic were the second punk wave with bands really innovate like Discharge or The Exploited. The most important element in Minor Threat was not the music but the new ideas and new way of life in the rock´n´roll culture since its born in 1957.

RAMONES

































"Idem"
Year:  1976
Country:  US
City:  New York
Label:  Warner
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  16
Time:  36 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk  Rock




















RAMONES were an American punk rock band that formed in the New York City neighborhood of Forest Hills, Queens, in 1974. Despite achieving only limited commercial success, the band was a major influence on the punk rock movement in both the United States and, perhaps to a greater extent, the United Kingdom.  All of the band members adopted pseudonyms ending with the surname "Ramone", although none of them were related. They performed 2,263 concerts, touring virtually nonstop for 22 years. In 1996, after a tour with the Lollapalooza music festival, the band played a farewell concert and disbanded. Only a little more than eight years after the breakup, all three of the band's founding members - lead singer (and, at the time of founding, drummer) Joey Ramone, guitarist Johnny Ramone, and bassist Dee Dee Ramone - had died.  Their only record with enough U.S. sales to be certified gold was the compilation album Ramones Mania. However, recognition of the band's importance built over the years, and they are now mentioned in many assessments of all-time great rock music, such as the Rolling Stone list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. In 2002, the Ramones were ranked the second-greatest band of all time by Spin magazine, trailing only the Beatles. On March 18, 2002, the Ramones—the three founders and drummers Tommy and Marky Ramone—were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2011, the group was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award

This is the third TSOL album and fuck yes, one of the best but the best. The work get brilliant similarities to Misfits, Danzig and Samhain, keeping their punk roots with an strong gothic voice, which also can to remind to The Damned in its more goth period. Perhaps slower and less hardcore than their debut, but highly recommended for those all followers of the band.

Controversial album wich opened a periode for TSOL not much popular and quite critized in the scene. With this "Revenge" the band started to leave the open door to some kind of hard-rock with sound and production totally mainstream. But the true is with the pass of the time the recording became as a one more TSOL album, which continues to keep those elegant gothic influences and still dynamic punk rock songs. Next four years the band released two attempts to enter in the mainstream and big music industry, but both albums became in complete failures and in 1990 TSOL disbanded.

After seven years of complete discographic silence, the californian veterans punk rockers attack us again with new album. This time there is just punk rock with some pop influences, whith few distorted guitards and clear and melodic voices and chorus. It's no sure to describe this one as a post-punk album, in the 80's style, but it's something like that. Even most of lyrics have nothing to do with "horror punk", b-movies or Misfits, to mention a few. This is more related to optimistyc and positive pop attitude. The band added in some songs even electronic keyboards. But the final result is more than satisfactory, not the typical TSOL album, but still good and recommended.
