Spynes Tingling

From: Southampton, England

I Want You the debut single from Southampton quartet Spynes is a dark and scuzzy rocker that rumbles and prowls like a black clad leopard in a Humvee. It's menacing, it's edgy, it's dark but with more pop savvy than a coach load of Pepsi executives. They remind me of another bunch of phonetically challenged garage warriors, the Wytches which immediately elevates them to top of my bands to watch pile. 

File under promising because there's no doubt that Spynes will be back.

Johnny's Be Good

From: Your Nightmares


Warmduscher, who released one of the Devil's favourite videos (here) and tracks (here) of 2014, have announced details of the release of their debut album, Khaki Tears, to be released through Trashmouth Records on 6th April 2015. As a taster the trio, who include a couple of renegades from  Fat White Family, one of the best new bands to emerge in 2014, and Clams Baker aka Mutado Pintado, have released another chaotic yet strangely hypnotic video for their latest single, Johnny's Blue Khaki. In keeping with previous releases The Salamander and Uncle Sleepover, their latest single is a short, sharp, crazy, rumbling rollercoaster. It sounds like the great grandchild of Pere Ubu suffering ritalin withdrawal symptoms.
