PENGSHUi: Don’t Like Me

Happy to see the second single from PENGSHUi get its release. The punk/grime hybrid three-piece look set to make a lot of waves this festival season and beyond, as they bring their unique sound to the stage. This follows on from their debut gig in a more intimate London setting, which went down very well by all accounts. Looking forward to what follows. You can stream Don’t Like Me below and it’s also available on all the other usual platforms. Continue reading “PENGSHUi: Don’t Like Me”

Pengshui: Control

Reggae and punk sounded nothing alike, but found common ground in their anti-establishment themes. Bob Marley in particular found an affinity with the movement when he relocated to the UK, hence the song Punky Reggae Party on Exodus.

That’s why I’m happy to see Pengshui come to life cos they are going to show us how those two worlds can unite & make some joyous mayhem. Continue reading “Pengshui: Control”

Words Hurt: The Attitude

Words Hurt have returned with a surprise new EP, as a sort of follow-up to last November’s Soul Music For The Soulless LP.

He explained that The Attitude was created in the vein of a punk record, with shorter track lengths and more of a focus on hooks, essentially inspired by Group Sex by Circle Jerk. You can stream the EP below and downloads are available over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Words Hurt: The Attitude”

Zack de la Rocha: Digging For Windows

I don’t think anyone could quite believe their eyes and ears when a new Zack De La Rocha song breached our lives yesterday. Not only is it the first solo material from Zack that has actually made it to reality, but he’s also roped in El-P to produce the track. A solo LP is scheduled to see the light of day in 2017, so watch out for that.
