Gumming - Anger Ranting
The next Just Some Punk Songs show will broadcast this Tuesday at 8pm (gmt) and will be a special show featuring just bands with female vocalists. Don't expect X Ray Spex, Siouxsie And The Banshees, Bikini Kill etc as that would be too predictable (and too much of a nostalgia fest). The bands I'll be playing will be for the most part more modern day (though the classic corner section of the show will feature a song from 1966). Also don't expect anything as predictable as a playlist comprising the likes of Amyl And The Sniffers, Neighborhood Brats, Stiletto Bomb, Ubik and all those other great bands that have lit up recent shows. That would be a bit too easy (although a couple of recently featured bands with new releases will get another plug). What can you expect? Tune in Tuesday and you'll hopefully be wowed.... https://www.facebook.com/events/1892360577497894/
As a teaser I'll feature one of the bands that'll feature on today's update. Gumming formed in March 2017, are based in Richmond, Virginia and feature Emilie (vocals), Landon (guitar), Marisa (bass) and Lee (drums). In May of last year they announced themselves with an 8 track Self Titled release that's name your price on Bandcamp. Last month they returned with impressive album Human Values. It's also name your price so no reason not to snap it up.... https://gumming.bandcamp.com
Also online is a 15 minute video of their first ever gig.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcvLZBVS2sc
The song I'm highlighting is track 8 on the album and is a good summation of their sound. Noisy, pissed off but not without a tune. Really good actually. This is Anger Ranting.....
