Dropdead – ‘Discography Vol 1 1992-1993’ Remixed/ ‘Discography Vol 2 1995-2013’ – Remixed (Armageddon Label)

Christmas is about to come early for fans of Rhode Island hardcore punk quartet Dropdead. Later this month a plethora of re-mastered material will be released on the bands’ own record label, Armageddon. It’s been a project that took seven years but finally, due to the unfortunate impact of lockdowns and the reduction in live shows, guitarist Ben (Barnett) has found the time to focus on this project. The enhanced versions of Dropdead’s first two albums were reviewed on Über Rock last month. Let’s now take a look at ‘Discography Vol 1s and 2’…

Attic Theory – ‘The Sign of an Active Mind’ EP (Self-Released)

Seeing as, like most of us, Jonny B has been pretty sedentary for the last few months, he reckoned maybe he should do some searching to find out how to re-engage his brain instead of wallowing away. As luck would have it, he stumbled across this mini-album from local(ish) lads Attic Theory – ‘The Sign of an Active Mind’, which he’s hoping will give him, and us, the kickstart that we need!
