Gestureland (GMG/King Baby). Review by Jeremy Glazier.
The Ghoulies from Perth, Australia look like regular blokes caught out grocery shopping, but the sound they make is an urgent, insistent punk rock howl with a frenetic keyboard bubbling through.
Not unlike fine Swiss clockwork, the duo that calls themselves Yello have been ticking for four decades without missing a beat.
The first wave of UK punk crested and shrank back, but the Mekons are still thrashing and foaming.

Cleaver Lever (Shock Records). Review by Carl F Gauze.
Die-hard fans, May Terry among them, mind-moshed and recalled their early days of musical aggression at Irving Plaza, thanks to legendary punk rockers, X.
A fittingly ambitious film for a fittingly artistic and poetic band.
The Babies (Shrimper). Review by Matthew Moyer.

Trio B.C. (Blackheart Records). Review by Carl F Gauze.

I Am The Messer (Self Released). Review by Carl F Gauze.
Apocalyptic sci-fi, Busby Berkeley, and the proto-punk of the Screamers collide head-on in this reissue of Rene Daalder’s lo-fi, hilarious, and terribly sad musical. Is that a twelve-year old Beck making a cameo?
