Musically, it’s still a schizophrenic beast; this time with even wider contrasts. Where else can the Elliott Smith gone Fugazi-isms of Imagine I Had Hands rub shoulders with the art-metal spazz outs of The Pluto, or the shimmering electronic stomp of Suzerain dive headlong into the punk rock fury of Gallows, the classic songwriting beauty of Gitbox taking on Rollins gone jazzcore of Halph.
Paul Hawkins and Thee Awkward Silences are an example of the very finest in British outsider songwriting and Lou Psyche (Lil’ Lost Lou), treats us to her punk side and shows why she is one of London’s best loved live acts. The Snake of June are from Finland and are simply, very metal. Gunnbunny are one of the loudest and rocking two pieces we have had the pleasure to hear, Miss Pink Shoes take socio-political commentary and make it Staines, Heartwear Process are theatrically brilliant and have supported The Fall, The Wireless Stores are an English slice of Americana, and General Mindy are another example of why Belgium is the most overlooked of musical hotspots in the world. Dave House, (of The Steal ) is a contemplative troubadour par excellence. The Swedish band formed from the ashes of the late, great Breach, The End Will Be Kicks. And last but not least, Don Ramos Players bring their melodic punk excellence to the table.
What the press said about the first compilation:
“A bloody-minded and enjoyably cranky collection of misfit songs from misfit groups, twenty-one in total, that no longer fit anywhere else but their own universe following the death-by-overuse of terms like ‘alternative.’” – All Music
“An exceptional collection of songs that all flow and fizz like an actual album rather than a mixed-up comp. Highly Recommended.” – Spill
“A stellar cast of independent and alternative talent. You’ll piss off the fatcats who want to bleed your scene dry” –Moderate Rock
