Shout Louder Podcast #3: Deep Inside I’m A Cynical Fuck

Episode 3 is here! Featuring brand new music from Call Me Malcolm, Nosebleed and Triple Sundae, plus tunes from March and On A Hiding To Nothing.

We’re back! In Episode 3 we are excited to share three fresh tracks with you ahead of their release – you can look forward to new songs from Nosebleed, Triple Sundae and Call Me Malcolm. We also have some fast noisy stuff from March and On A Hiding To Nothing.

Sarah get annoyed and goes off on tangents, while Mark is there to rein her back in as usual. Mark shares his love of All Saints and displays an incredibly poor knowledge of hip hop, Sarah shares a love of The Strokes and a hatred of Good Charlotte as we discuss some of our musical origins. We also share a mutual story about getting rained on Punk Rock Holiday.

After having a good whinge, we discuss some of the most exciting releases of the moment, including Our Lives In Cinema, Eat Dirt, Money Left To Burn and The Affect Heuristic. We take plenty of time to discuss the shows we’ve been to lately including Shredfest (with No Contest, Laughing In The Face Of, Almeida, Sombulance, LineOut and Dead Neck), Pat Butcher‘s carrot in a minute gag, Only Strangers, Kiss Me Killer, Honey, The Domestics and The Kirkz.

The podcast is available on Itunes and all other good podcatchers, or you can listen to it right now:

EP Review: Kiss Me, Killer – Beware!

Ferocious metal-tinged riot grrl garage-punk from Bristol! Noisy! Angry! Catchy!

Review by Ollie Stygall.

There is so much more to Bristol than funny accents, Massive Attack, Skins, Banksy, Portishead, Tricky, Concord, a dubious history of slave trading and disgraced TV personality Justin Lee Collins. Bristol has a long relationship with punk rock going back nearly 40 years. In the early 80’s the Riot City label launched the careers of local bands Vice Squad and Chaos UK, who are both still going strong alongside other local outcasts Disorder. Later in the 80’s labels such as C.O.R and Manic Ears and fanzines such as Skate Muties From The Fifth Dimension and Bugs And Drugs kept the city at the forefront of the burgeoning hardcore scene. It’s good to see that bands such as Kiss Me, Killer are keeping the flag flying in the city.

Kiss Me, Killer are a five piece self-styled ‘ferocious, hooky, riot grrrl garage punk’ band and, I have to say, their description pretty much makes my review unnecessary as it does sum them up to a tee. Boasting influences from psychedelic originators The 13th Floor Elevators, to garage pioneers MC5 and The Stooges, to punk stalwarts such as The Mob and The Ruts, to old school metal and riot grrrls Bikini Kill, Kiss Me, Killer are very much a product of their diverse influences. On this EP they offer up four tracks of hard hitting, snarling yet melodic punk rock. Continue reading “EP Review: Kiss Me, Killer – Beware!”
