PULPFUSION: From A Kid To A Man

PULPFUSION: From A Kid To A ManYet another project that dropped in the festive season and was thus in danger of getting lost amid all the nonsense that such a season entails is the From A Kid To A Man LP from a man who has been off the monkey radar for a long minute – Pulpfusion. Nevertheless, Terence Thoeny (for it is he) dropped this instrumental opus of fourteen tracks (plus three bonus cuts if you cop it on his

TIMEWARP INC: Theory Of Revolution LP

TIMEWARP INC: Theory Of Revolution LPTheory Of Revolution?  Could use one of those in the UK since we’ve forgotten how to identify the corrupt, let alone do something about them. Maybe we should all boogie while everything burns down and if so, what better soundtrack than Timewarp Inc.’s fourth studio long-player? And what a mammoth affair Theory Of Revolution is, tipping the scales at a whopping nineteen tracks

DISCOBETA: Breakin The Rulz

DISCOBETA: Breakin The RulzBreakin’ The Rulz (and I’m not just talking about spelling conventions), it’s Discobeta! Not for them sending promo out before release! Here is a duo that rock out with their cocks out and play dangerous – this dropped on 19 November after all. But never mind all that, what you need to know is that all the beats on this seven-tracker are originally composed and played and that (along

THE FRITZ:  Schweet EPNewness from Scour Records then, in the form of The Fritz’s debut Schweet EP which has apparently been eight years in the making.

Now that peak wobble has passed however, this sort of stuff has been re-

MR BRISTOW: Brex-mas Mix-Up 2019Mr Bristow’s Christmas mix has become something of an annual seasonal fixture on MB over the last five years so now that it is actually 1 December (and notwithstanding the fact that retail stores and TV seem to have been pushing the festive period since 1 September) here is…the 2019 Brex-mas Mix-Up! Bit controversial Mr B – but tell us what voters – er – I mean listeners can expect.  Sorry –

INNEREYEFULL: Night Of The Living Bass Bins

INNEREYEFULL: Night Of The Living Bass BinsNeither shuffling nor moaning or rotting (nor indeed a Public Enemy remix) it’s new single Night Of The Living Bass Bins from Cornwall’s Innereyefull. And if you want a sense of what that sounds like, think of an instrumental version of The Specials’ Ghost Town being channelled through a prism of the subtler end of late 90s big beat. That’s right, echoey guitar skanks, mournful
