Joe Solo has done it again. One of the main agitators behind the we shall overcome movement Joe has got together with the Hatfield Brigade
‘Merry Christmas From Hatfield Main’ by Joe Solo & The Hatfield Brigade was recorded on location at Central Club in Stainforth on October 30th 2016 as miners and their families from up and down the UK gathered to join a choir like no other in the spirit of community and solidarity.
The single is available to download from all major outlets from Monday November 28th and all funds raised will go to those struggling to make ends meet in Food Bank Britain.
There is a VERY limited number of CD copies available which are simply a printed disc in a clear plastic sleeve with just the one song on. Only 200 copies were made and promos have been taken from this, so this is a very rare little piece of history.
I picked up 2 copies of this at Rebellion
It is a hark back to the cut and paste zines from the 80’s with staples down the side, the interviews are pretty sparse but he can only print what the band reply I suppose
Issue 34 has interviews with Anti-Establishment,Angelic Upstarts,RED ALERT and East Town Pirates!
Issue 35 has interviews with The Warriors, Hospital Food, The Defects and Disorder

It’s very rare that a record label gets a description incorrect of one of its bands. They know them best, theiy know their secret likes and all that goes into the wiritng of their songs. So when their record label, lavidaesunmus, describe Mystic Inane as “Freaked out FLIPPER meets RUDIMENTARY PENI acid punk from New Orleans who channels the weird vibes of earlier SACCHARINE TRUST and battles them against modern distorted hardcore creating a hybrid soundtrack to a bad trip.” there is no point in me arguing for something else.
It drifts along at a fuzzed out speed as indeed is as confusing as it is exciting
Fanzine of the Week
Blackpool Rox2 Issue 11
Another special brought out for Rebellion and has good interviews with Cock Sparrer, Simon Wells, Ted Dibiase Million Dollar Punk Band, Colleen Caffeine and local Blackpool acts Poly-Esters and Du Pig/ ALongside that there’s extensive reviews from Steve Scanner and bits on being a woman in Saudi Arabia and Andys travel blog from the European Championship. Andy’ style of writing is quirky and chatty and Blackpool Rox2 is always worth picking up.
16 Windmill Close
Andy does this youtube show every week where he plays a cover version, check it out below
Tony and Gaz just keep that Suspect Device machine rolling. It’s heartening to see them into issue 58 and still with the enthusiasm on *1. It is a split issue with Zonked which has is a newbie in comparison with 13 previous issues.
Interviews with Dry Heaves, Chroma, Rotten Mind, Immolato Tomatoes, Hack Job, Army Of Skanks, Darren Bourne, Time Waster and some great pics and reviews. I always have a new band to listen to after reading Suspect device

It’s an indication of how we deal with music in the 21st Century.
When I first heard that Fall Out Boy drummer Andy Hurley was channeling his hardcore roots in a new band called Sect I immediately went to google to check its accuracy. There was no need for a trip to the record store to ask an informed worker or indeed to check a zine or music press for validation.
And so a quick check led me to noisey and it tells me that the band are a straight edge, vegan group, which also features members of the punk bands Cursed, Burning Love, Earth Crisis and Catharsis, and they will release their self-titled debut album on August 5.
That really piqued my interest do i delved further. Where’s the bandcamp page? the twitter account, the facepook page so i can like it. Vegan and Straight edge! let’s get that back out there.
There doesn’t seem to be any social media presence but the record is going to self released and sounds like a pure belter of aggressive hardcore punk rock. Screaming at ya
Catchy post punk sound from London based 4 piece Primetime. This is their second 7″ but the band are new to me. I’m sure they haven’t taken their name from the RTE current affairs programme and their sound is a post punk barrage that Kleenex would have been proud of. Angular Gang of four type guitar with basic catchy punk rock rhythm that.
