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.

Knott explains why 'Something To Write Home About' is "pure gold". Whilst Senior Editor

In honour of 'Kurt Cobain Day’, Hildamay have released a cover of Nirvana's 'Rape Me'.
Hildamay Tim Lawrence made the following comment about the cover:
“We sat down and jammed out some Nirvana songs. We could have gone for something more ‘out there’, or something more popular, but we liked the message of this song and we felt that it is a true reflection of Cobain’s incredibly powerful, yet simple songwriting,”
