DROSS - Nightmare World


  I think today's update is both a hello and a goodbye to London "Low attention span" punk band DROSS. I was trying to find a bit of info on them when I came across a Facebook post saying vocalist Paul Froggatt was leaving to move to Melbourne and the band were having a final gig at London's New River Studios on Friday 24th February. It's a shame, as on the evidence served up on their new album, they'll be a loss. 

  As well as Paul Froggatt, the band features Adrian Alfonso (Guitar/Backing Vocals), Fisher (Bass/Backing Vocals) & Cunha (Drums/Backing Vocals). They're genre veterans gracing the likes of Lizard Brain, The Cavemen, The Speedways, Dead Meat, Trash Culture, & Virvon Varvon. 

  The album's called Nightmare World and it'll be getting a vinyl release later this year on No Front Teeth Records. It's a mix of hardcore and garage punk of which fans of The Cavemen will recognise Paul's frantic vocal delivery. 10 songs in 20 minutes with no pause for breath, lovely stuff. You can get the digital version here :  https://drossdrossdross.bandcamp.com/album/nightmare-world

  This is the title track...
