With Spring fast approaching and festival season starting soon, March sees a whole load of noteworthy releases. We take a look at five of the must hear releases this month.
Having only just formed last summer, Leeds punks Brawlers have quickly made a name for themselves for their insane live show. Now the quartet have unleashed their utterly brilliant debut EP 'I Am A Worthless Piece of Shit', an infectious collection of fun punk rock numbers. We talked to vocalist Harry George Johns to find out why the longtime friends formed
Brawlers and what 'I Am Worthless...' is all about.
After delivering one of the early contenders for album of the year, we catch up Modern Baseball to discuss ‘You’re Gonna Miss It All’, their forthcoming debut UK tour and miming
at the World Series.
In the second part of our "Studio Report" feature with Colt 45, the Cumbria punks finish their debut LP producer Romesh Dodangoda by recording vocals and more guitars. Take a look.
In the first of our new fortnightly feature where we highlight some of the most promising
bands in the pop-punk world, we talk to New York's Firestarter.
In the latest instalment of our "Tour Tales" feature, we join Wakefield quartet Morain on their recent tour supporting Durham four-piece Alexander.
With lead vocalist Matt Pryor having recently completed a solo UK tour, we highlight two albums from The Get Up Kids for the latest edition of "Versus". Already Heard writer Tom
Knott explains why 'Something To Write Home About' is "pure gold". Whilst Senior Editor
Sean Reid shows us why 'Guilt Show' shouldn't be dismissed.
Newport, South Wales music venue Le Pub has unfortunately been put up for sale due to the fact that the current owner could no longer afford to keep it running.
However an online Crowdfunder campaign has been launched by promoters Sŵn and Sam Harries to save the venue. The campaign is looking to raise £20,000.
Full details can be found here.
A message from Sŵn and Sam Harries :
“Newport venue Le Pub is up for sale. The current owner can no longer run the business and needs to sell. So far, everyone who has gone to look around it wants to turn it into a wine bar, or flats. After the closure of Newport TJs we don’t want that to happen to Le Pub.
Welsh promoters Sŵn and the manager of Le Pub, Sam Harries, are launching a campaign to Save Le Pub. We have the expertise to run the venue, to book more shows in the spirit with which the venue has been operating and to help market the venue to more people. What we don’t have is enough money to buy the venue and carry out the re-decoration that Le Pub desperately needs.
So we need your help. And fast. We need to raise the extra capital to purchase Le Pub and restore it to its former glory so it can remain open and continue as a space for live music in Newport.
We know we need at least £20,000. That’s a lot of money. But there’s a lot of you. People who have watched bands in Le Pub, drunk in Le Pub, played in Le Pub or want to play in Le Pub. Whatever you can contribute will help.
Help us Save Le Pub.
Sŵn & Sam Harries”
