No Brainer – Jon Jones and the Beatnik Movement

October 27, 2017
fromthelisteningnook


Format: 7″ black vinyl 
Side AA of a double A side from Come Play With Me

A slap-happy smash of discordant thumping screeching guitars resplendent with heady screamo chorus. Dark alleyway aggression meets metallic hobnailed vocals whilst repetitive slashes of noise bellow from the bottom of a tortured soul. A musical call for attention wrapped up is heavy duty fuzz and all sorts of shouty goodness.

Score: 8/10

Thought: down deep…deep in the markets better regions of existence bellows the agonized cry of Jon Jones’s musical soul!

Zodiac – Magic Mountain

Format: 7″ black vinyl 
Side A of a double A side from Come Play With Me

Full fat punk rhythms enmeshed with Fuzzbox vocals and a messy melange of music and lyrics. Pacey and toe-tapping and chock full of melodic aggression and an ethereal punk-prog aesthetic. Slaps you on the bum with its super tight dancing guitar break.

Score: 8/10

Thought: a sexy three-way with Peter Gabriel, Fuzzbox and the Sex Pistols…in a garage…with DIY tools!

Dart/Disco/Drag – Blklstrs

Format: 7″ black vinyl

Side A: DART – a razor sharp distortion of slicing guitars and in your face 70s screamo punk vocals. A disharmonic head rush of tortured guitar is browbeaten by insistent tub thumping drums and underscored by hell-sent doom laden bass. This is pit of the soul punk…the theme tune to Dante’s Circles of Hell Tours.

Side B1: DISCO – a chiming solo guitar is reconciled by a low and dirty bassline and agitprop megaphone vocals. From the street prosletysing proclaiming an evil land of no hope and despair. A world view lacquered with primal scream therapy.

Side B2: DRAG – punk mendicant sensibilities travelling through a blasted post-apocalyptic world on a death-train powered by ginormous chords and desperate vocalizations. Siren-like repetitive concatenation of mournful pain.

Score: 8/10

Thought: punk from the depths of Hades brought to you in partnership with Strepsils!
