Disco Junk - Mutual Hate


  Today I bring you another band from that fertile oasis of all things punk rock, Australia. Disco Junk are from Melbourne and they describe themselves simply as musicians who create music that's good. Going off the evidence presented by their new ep, I can't argue with them. From what I can gather "they" began life a year or so ago under the name Republican Blue and were a one man project masterminded by teenage guitarist/bassist/vocalist Billy Twyford. Nowadays Lachie Smith is on drums and as photos of them show a third member I'm guessing they're quite probably a trio (sorry third guy for not knowing your name!). Anyway, as the title of their (name your price on Bandcamp) album suggests, they're young, loud and snotty. They're also very deserving of your attention so check them out

  The new ep is titled Underage Punk, it's their first proper studio recording, recorded by Billy Gardner (Ausmuteants, Living Eyes, Anti Fade Records and mastered by the ubiquitous Mikey Young) and features their 4 best songs. The 7" is available from Hozac Records whilst you can find it (and previous releases) digitally here :

  This is the opening track, it's a short blast of cool as fuck scratchy punk goodness about reciprocated enmity, it's called Mutual Hate...
