J-B say ta!

In their forums, the Jerry-Built boys left a thank you note to everyone who attended their charity gig at the Verge last Friday. Everyone who saw J-B, Fletcher and Route 215 helped to raise £290! The message (posted by Andy I think) read: "Just thought I'd let one and all know on this message...

Craig David loves Phinius Gage!

Ok, so he doesn't. I don't think. But this is what Brighton's best skate-punks told me: "What's your flavour - tell me what's your flavour? If only the famous bearded one Craig David was going to The Verge in Kentish Town, London this Sunday, he'd be confused as hell! Check out 4 flavours...

Epoxy – the next big thing?

So I've just conducted an in-depth interview with Brett, lead singer of Epoxy, a US band making waves stateside with their totally original sound. This is a band with a lot to say, and well worth checking out. A review of their 'Nothing Else' record will be up later this week, as will an...

New Finch songs!

Two new Finch songs have eminated from the band's trip into their studio - and they have been leaked onto the internet! For legal reasons I can't post which website has them, but I can tell you that 'Apologetic Theory' and 'Song 3' are damn fine blasts of what we've come to expect. The two tracks...

Punktastic gig flyering!

Going to the Nottingham Punktastic sponsored show with Skirtbox, Phinius Gage and Four Dumb Kids? Fantastic! It's on Saturday, November 9 and there will be a shedload of you there. But we need to make the gig a success by getting the general public to know about it. If you email...

Rumour, rumour, rumour!

OK, so here's the latest rumours - don't shoot me if they don't happen. Poison The Well have apparently been added to the Glassjaw tour in December. Finch will also allegedly play, Hell Is For Heroes will play London only, and thisGIRL i think are down for some dates. Also, The Movielife will be...

Buy a t-shirt!

From the Good Clean Fun Records newsletter: "We have a few shirts left over from The Busdrivers' UK tour. The shirts are a cool royal blue and have THE BUSDRIVERS on the front, with DON'T PLAY WITH ME *04* on the back. As you probably know, it's a reference to the first track on their album...

Support the ‘Down With Kerrang’ Campaign

Reading today's copy of Kerrang I was disgusted to read their 'review' of the new No Comply record. Although their score of 3 was reasonable (but incorrect) smart-arse reviewer James Sherry has been shown up for a bit of a goon. Not only has he branded the band ska when they quite clearly are...
