    themen2018a6 212x300 - Double Negative - new album from The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing

    Ahead of their 2018 tour, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing have announced details of their 4th album.

    “We wanted to create a short, angry album that emphasised our punk side and pushed our sound forward,” explain the band.

    “It’s dark, savage, brutal and holds up the rotten corpse of Britain’s past as a mirror to the sorry state of the present…and then rubs yer face in it so you won’t do it again”

    The album is entitled ‘Double Negative’ and drops on March 9th, just before they embark on their tour. read more


  • TELT Poster Final - The Electronic Liberation Tour The Electronic Liberation Tour

    Posted on by kev36663

    Manchester DIY alternative label AnalogueTrash will be taking four of its hottest acts on tour this November under the banner of the Electronic Liberation Tour 2017. 

    Get involved. xx

    ★★★ FEATURING ★★★


    ded.pixel: Progressive electronics and Northern bleakness; pushing the boundaries of electro, post rock, ambient and classical minimal composition.

    DEF NEON: An uncanny juxtaposition of contemporary electronics and classic indie rock sensibilities. Think The Gossip meets The Pet Shop Boys, or Peaches meets Van Halen.

    St Lucifer: Avant-garde anti-pop electro noise punk four-piece from the rainy city. Brace yourself for an eclectic smorgasbord of sounds and an incendiary live show.

  • unnamed - New Tragedy video & album ahead of tour New Tragedy video & album ahead of tour

    In an upside down world being torn at the seams, Tragedy brings us all together by uniting two warring factions – Disco and Metal.

    The video stars comedian/musician/author Dave Hill in a role reminiscent of Tony Manero in the classic film, Saturday Night Fever, except with a little less success on the dance floor. He admires a handsome and talented disco-dancer (Nobuya Nagahama) at the club, but every time our Tony takes to the dance floor, he gets caught up in metal mayhem. Eventually, Tony finds salvation in a Disco-Metal transformation, inspired by his favorite band, Tragedy. read more


  • SilenThieves band1 - Silent Thieves join Marco Mendoza tour Silent Thieves join Marco Mendoza tour

    We’re pleased to announce that Silent Thieves are the first confirmed touring band to join the Marco Mendoza tour.

    The tour hits Newcastle on February 11th at Think Tank Underground (The Head of Steam) tickets are already flying out – you can secure yours from this link here

    More info on Silent Thieves below

    SILENT THIEVES are three musicians that have spent many years forging their own paths in the music scene and
    have found their way to the same point to form an entity that they can release their own kind of music onto the world.
    The three members started writing, rehearsing and recording in the Spring of 2015. The end result would be
    ‘Silent Thieves’.
    Andy Murray heavily influenced by the first band he saw live, Thin Lizzy, played in various heavy rock acts from youth
    including an outfit poised to sign for a big future including drummer Adam Parsons (who ironically now manages the
    ‘new’ Thin Lizzy, ‘Black Star Riders’), until circumstances took a different turn. He then found himself touring Europe
    and Canada for the next few years as lead guitarist for celebrated Scottish Celtic Rock band ‘Wolfstone’.
    Since then he has established himself as a writer and session player for various artists, working with acts like
    Coast and Smokie among many others.
    Dave McIntosh was crowned ‘World Champion’ drummer in his once alternative guise as a pipe band drummer many
    moons ago, at a time that would see him travel to places like New York and Europe. In his other role, he was the solid
    beat behind Scottish rock band The Kut for nearly 25 years that would see him support many legendary acts as well as
    playing the famous Marquee Club in London twice.
    Mark Allison started in garage bands in his teens playing guitar and bass in whichever guise was needed. In his
    twenties a host of his bands supported well know acts like Big Country and The Quireboys before he decided to go in to
    a forced early retirement from music. Nearly 12 years later after suppressing the urge to fulfil his teenage dreams he
    entered the musical path once more supporting artists like Nik Kershaw and finding recognition as a songwriter. read more

  • album cover - Tour for 25th Anniversary of Love/Hate 'Wasted in America' Tour for 25th Anniversary of Love/Hate ‘Wasted in America’

    jizzy17The year was 1992—not so long ago? Actually it was 25 years ago, before kids and car payments, before growing up, it was still long hair and staying up all night listening to your favourite music and not having to pay for it the next morning.

    Then there was the rock band, Love/Hate. Out and about with Ozzy Osbourne on their No More Tears European tour. Somewhere in the middle of the mayhem an early morning knock came on the tour bus door. Always the first one up Jizzy Pearl opened the door a crack and peered out—“Congratulations…” said an Ozzy roadie– “Your new record just broke the Top 20!” That record was WASTED IN AMERICA, second in line and coming fast on the heels of their successful first record BLACKOUT IN THE RED ROOM. read more

    The Great Deceiver‘s long and tortured state of evolution took its toll equally on the band and its namesake, leading Mortiis to so much as state that the record killed the band. “As important as is it to myself and who I have become, I haven’t been able to think about it in any way other than ‘I need to just get this thing out of my life and behind me before I lose my mind,’” he said. read more
