The return of Everett True | 65. No Jaws

I keep telling folk bribery will work. I have no idea why people don’t listen. Failing that, try flattery. Make sure it’s sincere, though. Cue a message left on Twitter*. Mr. Thackray may tear us apart. But perception of a man who percepts so well is recognition enough. This new Song of the Day sounds […]

The return of Everett True | 64. Arre! Arre!

The return of Everett True | 64. Arre! Arre!

That’s how it works sometimes. I send a recommendation out there, my friends and readers pick up on it, and they send one back. Mutually beneficial. Sounds like an ad for a building society, doesn’t it? We go around in circles. We go around and round and round and round. No, that’s not me speaking. […]

The return of Everett True | 63. Bloods

It’s Kim Warnick. It’s Tobi Vail. It’s Corin Tucker. It’s Matrimony. It’s The Go-Go’s. It’s a taut coiled spring ready to pounce. It’s The Pleasure Seekers. It’s Blue Angel. It’s Patty Schemel. It’s repetition as a weapon. It’s The Donnas. It’s Bangs. It’s The Detroit Cobras. It’s autonomy. It’s Dolly Mixture. It’s Divinyls. It’s Dogtower. […]

The return of Everett True | 62. The UV Race

Let me quote The Jam at you. “Life is timeless, days are long when you’re young/You used to fall in love with anyone/Any guitar and any bass drum.” That’s how it works, right? You see a band, you fall in love for a minute, an hour, a week, a year… whatever it takes. It’s even […]

Song of the Day #694 – Quiet Marauder

Song of the Day #694 – Quiet Marauder

With one hundred and eleven songs on their quadruple album ‘Men’, Cardiff’s Quiet Marauder have more than enough songs to have run from one end of the music spectrum to the other and this record goes all over the map. Well maybe not dixieland or bebop jazz or throat singing, but they cover a lot […]

The return of Everett True | 61. The Bastards Of Fate

I have a Bastards Of Fate album here, clutched in my sweaty paws. Not literally. It’s called Vampires Are Real And Palpable. ‘Winter’ reminds me of Gogol Bordello fighting over who gets to keep the kitchen sink. ‘Further’ is like David Bowie if he still had some joy and imagination. With Antony And The Johnsons […]

Bedroom Suck doesn’t | five years on

Bedroom Suck doesn’t | five years on

Music that doesn’t suck. There’s a Bedroom Suck compilation out: BSR5. It’s there to celebrate five years since the label was started by two discontents living in the steamy undergrowth of Brisbane, 27 tracks featuring… well, I’m guessing it features some fucking great Australian music. (I ain’t heard it, you understand.) Not much of a guess […]

The return of Everett True | 60. CactusDemonDoom

They say: Post-punk garage rock infused with a little Moontrekkers madness. I say: I like it! Nice indeed. Though I suspect I might like it even more, infused with a little Moonrakers madness. They say: Alternative punk that is kinda weird with pop catchy melodies. I say: They’ve nailed that right, even inverted. Sometimes they go […]

The return of Everett True | 59. Vacation Club

The fuck you say. From the label that brought you Thee Open Sex. Vacation Club “Heaven Is Too High” by Vacation Club They say: Vacation Club’s debut full-length HEAVEN IS TOO HIGH fries you blind with a most pleasant and poisonous cocktail of psych-pop. The Indiana four-piece delivers infectiously poppy bubblegum chewed up and spit […]

The return of Everett True | 58. Marianne Faithfull

I’m going to preface this entry with a comment someone left on something I wrote about The Drones a while back. Yeah, I like the Drones but their songs depict the world as a cold, uncaring, violent place and people associate that with authenticity. One review says Gareth Liddiard, “tells it like it is.” But […]
