VIDEO OF THE WEEK – HOLDING ABSENCE

We continue to receive a veritable tsunami of video clips – another 150+ of them in the past week alone – being sent our way in a bid to be the latest recipient of the coveted title and virtual gong of being named our favourite… Believe us, we do watch all of the submissions, and, apart from those which don’t meet our criteria – i.e., no lyric videos, no straight performance clips and no “playthroughs” – most of them are of an extremely high quality, but there can only ever be one winner… And, to that end, this week’s selection sees us returning to our geographical roots…

‘1-2 Cut Your Hair – The Story of Johnny Moped’ – Simon Williams (Damaged Goods Books)

One of the best kept secrets of the early days of ÜK punk is Croydon’s misfits Johnny Moped – the man, the band, the punk myth, the none-hit-wonder, the absent singer, the comeback (and back, and back again) king. Both Chrissie Hynde and Ray Burns (aka Captain Sensible) featured in their ranks at one point, and they counted one Lemmy Kilmister among their gang of ardent admirers.

Ithaca/Pupil Slicer/Lure In – Manchester, Deaf Institute – 3 August 2022

It must be a day that ends in ‘-y’, as Jase W is at another gig already this week and this time in Manchester’s Deaf Institute! Ithaca wasted no time getting touring in support of their latest, and absolutely bloody fantastic album, ‘They Fear Us’. Bringing with them mathcore and general noisy band, Pupil Slicer for the ride and for tonight’s stop, Manchester lads, Lure In.

Wild Heat/Rosco’s Riot/Dynasty – Belfast, Voodoo – 23 July 2022

It hasn’t been a week already, has it? Well, it hasn’t quite… It’s only been six days (if you want to be pedantic, and Monk does, ‘cos he’s like that), but here was UR’s bossman again, venturing out of the balmy summer evening sunshine and into the hallowed inner enclave of his favourite hometown venue for another session of quality rock ‘n’ roll – and maybe a few ciders along the way 😉 Time to see if the headliners’ name would live up to what we had been experiencing over the previous whack of days…

Heilung – ‘Drif’ (Season Of Mist)

Bona P was delighted to receive Heilung’s latest album for review as he has to admit he is a bit of a fan. Heilung, in our resident pagan’s opinion, are something special on the music scene, an opinion that was reinforced when he had the opportunity to see them live at The Barbican in York, just prior to lockdown.

Prosper Or Perish – ‘Shroud of Serpents’ (Jobson Productions)

It’s been a rough few weeks, and Jonny B feels like he’s got a bit out of touch with music – which, frankly, sucks serious ass. As a result, he feels like he needs to get back to his roots a bit and really ground himself in something that he can really blast out and get in the groove with. So, he was hoping that the latest album from Prosper or Perish manages to tick those boxes – he already had a good feeling about this one so, without further ado, let’s get going!

Ithaca – ‘They Fear Us’ (Hassle Records)

Rarely does a band suddenly get talked about so much in Jase W’s social circles so quickly like Ithaca has. He’s known of these guys for a reasonable length of time, but the lead up to the new album ‘They Fear Us’ has somehow managed being the subject of so many of his friends’ lips that it’s actually pretty amazing. Not only that but seeing posters for this forthcoming release splattered all over multiple festival walls in the lead up was also very noticeable.
