4130s – One for the Road

So what do you know about Ipswich? They have a football team and a group putting on punk shows. If you know anything else about it them you’re ahead of me

One of the bands involved in promoting gigs is the 4130s and this is their debut record. 12 tracks of power sing along tunes. Maybe if naked raygun or bad religion had of moved to Ipswich and brought fat mike from nofx with them then this record would have come out a long time ago. It has that raygun feel that whilst the songs are crashing along the vocals aren’t trying to catch up. At times there’s a node singalong style but there seems to be more substance than nofx comedy effect

Caves – Betterment

Caves
Betterment
Bombed Out Records

Caves are one of a number of great uk hardcore bands doing the rounds these days. Ironically In the disposable era of music it is hard for any scene to flourish. In times gone by we would be writing to each other and using word of mouth to clump bands together. “Oh you like snuff, have a listen to leatherface”, we would have assisted each other. Now you can find out for yourself at the click of a button. One click and you’re in Argentina, Another and you’re in Japan, quick click later and you’re back in the UK. Don’t get me wrong, that’s fabulous but it’s vast.

Caves sing emotionally to us with a fast backing beat by here’s some great guitar licks and heavy drums. Lots of singalong parts and these 11 songs are just what you need to brighten up a rain soaked day.  One more click below and you can have a listen yourself.
