Guttfull - Keyboard Warrior

 

 
  Earlier this year I posted a President Trump bashing song by new London "dirty sax" punks Guttfull (http://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/guttfull-arsehole.html). Today I'm pleased to bring you a song from their forthcoming ep,  titled #notalmen, it'll feature 6 tracks and is released on 20th July. You can check out details here : https://guttfull.bandcamp.com/album/notallmen

  They've a few dates lined up to promote the ep, including the official launch party at the Lexington in London where they'll be supporting Skinny Girl Diet. You can find out more here :  https://www.facebook.com/guttfull/

   The song you'll see below is on the new ep and it's also the current single. All the comments running along the bottom of the video are genuine comments left on videos, photos and articles about female musicians.

  This is Keyboard Warrior.....

Venom on your keyboard 
Scared of being ignored

Calling women bitches 
Dissing all the sisters

Mobina Galore - Vancouver



  Mobina Galore are a "vocally aggressive power chord punk duo" from Winnipeg, Canada. The line up features Jenna Priestner (vocals/guitar) and Marcia Hanson (drums/vocals). They've been together since 2011 and list amongst their influences the likes of The Distillers, Propagandhi, Desaparecidos, Against Me! etc...

  Earlier this year they released a new album called Feeling Disconnected. It's available on New Damage Records and Gunner Records and you can check it out here : https://mobinagalore.bandcamp.com/album/feeling-disconnected

  In support of the album they'll be touring North America and you can find details here : https://www.facebook.com/mobinagaloremusic/

  From the new album, this is Vancouver.....


Trying hard to fill a void but I’m just lying to myself 
It seems I’m dying on the inside you know I’m looking for some help 
I wonder why I’m sitting here when I know I don’t belong 
Disconnected from this moment, didn’t think it’s feel this wrong 

I was a kid when I was smart enough to know what I wanted 
When I was 18 I was told that I had always been wrong 
I’ve got a list to get through but I’m still waiting in line 
I keep being given a chance I choose the same thing every time 

WHOA! I HEAR VANCOUVER CALLING 
WHOA! I HEAR VANCOUVER CALLING 
I’VE GOTTA RUN IF I’M GONNA GET WHERE I’M GOING, I HEAR VANOCUVER CALLING 
I CAN’T STAY LONG BUT I’LL DO THE BEST WITH MY TIME TO MAKE THE LIFE I WANTED 

My anxiety distracts me from reality 
I’m driving across this province like a zombie it’s not safe for me 
Or you or anyone involved in the situation 
Can I pull over draw the curtains curl up in the back seat? 

WHOA! I HEAR VANCOUVER CALLING 
WHOA! I HEAR VANCOUVER CALLING 
I’VE GOTTA RUN IF I’M GONNA GET WHERE I’M GOING, I HEAR VANOCUVER CALLING 
I CAN’T STAY LONG BUT I’LL DO THE BEST WITH MY TIME TO MAKE THE LIFE I WANTED 
WHOA! I HEAR VANCOUVER CALLING 

There’s comfort in these walls, they’ve taken me this far, I won’t let it bring me down 
Won’t bring me down, not tonight, won’t bring me down 

WHOA! I HEAR VANCOUVER CALLING 
WHOA! I HEAR VANCOUVER CALLING 
I’VE GOTTA RUN IF I’M GONNA GET WHERE I’M GOING, I HEAR VANOCUVER CALLING 
I CAN’T STAY LONG BUT I’LL DO THE BEST WITH MY TIME TO MAKE THE LIFE I WANTED 
WHOA! I HEAR VANCOUVER CALLING 
WHOA! I HEAR VANCOUVER CALLING 
WHOA! I HEAR VANCOUVER CALLING

The Muff Divers - There's A New Spud In Town



  The Muff Divers are a duo from Chicago featuring Joe Sussman (Nancy, Dangus Tarkus) and AJ Durso (Culo, Gas Rag). They released a 2014 Demo and followed it up with an ep called No Muff Too Tuff and now they're back with a new album. Titled Dreams Of The Gentlest Texture it came out a couple of months ago on Lumpy Records and you can find it name your price here :  https://themuffdivers.bandcamp.com/album/dreams-of-the-gentlest-texture


  They play catchy, off kilter punk & glam rock. High pitched vocals, guitars, synth & drum machine. It reminds me of bands like The Dickies, The Spits, Coneheads, Liquids etc and should go down a storm with fans of those bands.

  From the album, this is the infectious There's A New Spud In Town....

Radioactivity - Infected



  Whilst thinking what to write about today's song I noticed that the band covered in today's update were the second ever band to feature on Just Some Punk Songs way back in 2013 (http://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/as-first-entry-in-this-blog-seems-to.html). Not an awful lot has changed on Just Some Punk Songs, you still get a killer song every day (along with a couple of badly writtten introductory paragraphs) and not an awful lot has changed with Radioactivity. They're still releasing wonderful garage influenced pop punk gems.

  The band lines up with ex Marked Men Jeff Burke and Mark Ryan alongside Bad Sports' Daniel Fried and Gregory Rutherford (as well as Marked Men & Bad Sports they've been in a plethora of other bands including Potential Johns, Chinese Telephones, The Novice, Mind Spiders, High Tension Wires, Video, Wiccans etc. One band you need to check out are Burke's excellent indie pop outfit Lost Balloons who've just released the gorgeous Hey Summer album : https://dirtnaprecords.bandcamp.com/album/lost-balloons-hey-summer).

  Anyway, Radioactivity have a new single. It's on Wild Honey Records and despite it being a follow up to their 2015 album Silent Kill, the 2 songs on the single were written several years earlier than that release and have only now seen the light of day. They've definitely been worth the wait.


This is about a relationship that was too one sided to succeed and it's called Infected....

Tv Crime - Clocking In



  TV Crime are the Nottingham newcomers that crashed last year's Just Some Punk Songs' best of 2016 chart with debut single Hooligans (it was an impressive number 4). It wasn't just me that loved the record though, it seemed to be universally adored so hopes for future releases were very high. Happily enough their new single doesn't disappoint.

  There'll be a 7" soon (as well as a debut album at some point). It'll be out on Static Shock Records and available through Drunken Sailor Records. For now you can check out the 2 tracks, Clocking In & Clocking Out over on Bandcamp  https://tvcrime.bandcamp.com/album/clocking-in-b-w-clocking-out

  They tag themselves as northern soul punk and listening to the new single I can definitely catch similarities with another great band, Royal Headache. I think it's fair to say they're one of the UK'S most promising new talents.

  This is Clocking In....

The 99ers - She Dont Like The Lillingtons



  St Paul, Minnesota pop punkers The 99ers are back with a new album. It's called Pop Punk Girl (the single of the same name appeared on this blog last year) and it's a fun 13 track blending of power pop, garage, punk and rock n roll. As well as the tile track there's an excellent cover of one of the genres greatest songs (Heaven Only Knows) as well as catchy tunes about beaches, surfing, pajama parties, and Roller Girls. It's fun, melodious and will hit the sweet spot for any fan of catchy bubblegum punk.

  The current line up of the band features founder member Stephen Brookfield (guitar/vocals) alongside Christopher Schoonover (drums), Doug Heeschen (bass/vocals) and Emily Bee (guitar/vocals). The album's out now on Spinout Records and it's highly recommended.

  The song you'll see below was played on yesterday's Just Some Punk Songs show alongside a bunch of other great new releases. If you want to check it out, it's saved here : https://www.mixcloud.com/mick-fletcher/just-some-punk-songs-180617/  Feel free to favourite and share the show so more people get to hear the bands.

  A girl with dubious taste, this is called She Don't Like The Lillingtons....

PizzaTramp - My Back's Fucking Fucked

(photo by Mark Richards)

As some of you know, as well as this blog there's also a Just Some Punk Songs weekly internet show in which I try and bring you the best new punk releases. It has a small but knowledgeable following split between the live show and the mixcloud saved version. The benefit of listening live is that you can access a chatroom and give your thoughts on the songs I play. Due to this I know that today's band are much loved by pretty much everyone who hears them. (Last week's show, which featured PizzaTramp, is saved here if anyone's interested...  https://www.mixcloud.com/mick-fletcher/just-some-punk-songs-130717/).

  Anyway, PizzaTramp. Fuck me they rock. They featured here previously with a track from last year's excellent Blowing Chunks album and today they return with a rip roaring blast of sonic fury taken from new ep Revenge Of The Bangertronic Dan ep. It's their 4th ep, it was recorded in a couple of hours so what you get is the band at their rawest, warts and all. It's great passionate punk rock music and you can find it here : https://pizzatramp.bandcamp.com/album/revenge-of-the-bangertronic-dan

  Are you ready to rock out? This is My Back's Fucking Fucked.....


Give me pills I'll go self medication 
Don't need a note I got self certification 
Hurts when I'm down and it hurts when I'm up 
All I know is that my back's fucking fucked 

Never mind only forty more years 
Every night another forty more beers 
Makes you feel quite down on your luck 
All I know is that my back's fucking fucked
