Sit back and enjoy.

As a few people digged the Cherrykicks demos here's some more of the guys. This time it's from the split that they did with a band called The Poisoning. Hold onto your hats though as this is a very different band. Harder, faster and more brutal in their approach and if I'm honest while I think it's alright I would rather have a slice of the earlier incarnation.

The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster are a band that live up to their strange moniker. Try to force them into a neat little niche and they will turn around and bite. So it's best just to keep them at arms length. This is an ep they released and unlike most bands who might add a bonus track or two they added a disc with a full concert on it. So if this is the sort of thing that gets your juices flowing then give me a shout and I'll see what I can do about the live disc.
This is one of my bargain bin finds from yesterday. I remember buying the first seven inch single that they released. At the time they were being touted as the next big thing by Alan McGee who discovered Oasis. While it was pretty meaty it didn't live up to the hype, but then again how many of the bands pushed forward by Alan McGee ever do. Regardless of not being everything that they were supposed to be I thought that they did have some promise and could have done with being eased into the spotlight rather than thrown forward. Like the Dolls said 'too much too soon'. They did record another album after this, but their boat appears to have sailed without them. Bit of a shame really.
