Weenog - Weenog's Tower

Okay… it looks like the cur­rent dun­geon craze, which seem­ing­ly start­ed out in the realm of synth-based sound­scapes some time ago and has since then pro­gres­sive­ly been mak­ing its pres­ence known on the fringes of garage punk, is now slow­ly but in­evitably ex­tend­ing its grip in­to the musty cel­lars of hard­core punk. This fun new tape of me­dieval sur­vival hymns about oth­er people's heads meet­ing blunt, heavy ob­jects sounds a bit as if Lumpy & The Dumpers, Cü­lo and Strange At­trac­tor joined forces to record an al­ter­nate Jab­ber­wocky sound­track.

Cosas Ilegales - Cosas Ilegales

This is al­ready the sec­ond awe­some re­lease for this week com­ing out of Mex­i­co. To be fair, this record is al­ready a few months old but still… there's clear­ly some­thing brew­ing over there. The de­but al­bum by this group is a high­ly con­cen­trat­ed caf­feine shot of drum ma­chine-dri­ven full-speed-straight-ahead garage punk with some slight sim­i­lar­i­ty to groups like S.B.F., Kid Chrome or Ar­se. Some­times noisy, some­times melod­ic, al­ways catchy and ex­hil­a­rat­ing.
