Disco Lepers.jpg

Mastering Disco Lepers “Sophisticated Shame” on Dead Beat Records.

“Disco Lepers- Sophisticated Shame LP.  Totally diggin the stink these guys are throwin’ out there.  Like a stab in the ear, London’s most putrid, bile-spewing snotbags are back with another depraved, dose of debauchery.  DISCO LEPERS continue to hit that tattered, festering vein rattling the same snotty, thunder-punk nerve as the GAGGERS eargasm to heaven.  DISCO LEPERS brilliantly spew 11 rabid scuzz-punk rippers like the the nastiest elements of the Vomit Pigs, Satans Rats, The Victims, The Dickies and The Lewd while totally carrying their own sound and doing it better than most.  Nasty stuff as expected here from members of THE GAGGERS and MISCALCULTIONS!  As long as Terminal Gagger and Co. continue to puke out cruddy blasts of homemade genius like this, count me in!  Tuff lookin’ cover art by Jackie Sudden.”

Cold Callers

Mastering Cold Callers “Alright Girl/ Spying On Me”on Wanda Records.

Taken from Faster and Louder:

“Supergroup alert! Cold Callers feature Marco from No Front Teeth Records, The Gaggers, Miscalculations, Disco Lepers, etc. teaming up with members of Los Pepes (one of my five favorite bands of the moment!). The band recently released its debut single: “Alright Girl” b/w “Spying On Me”. I continue to marvel at how Marco can have dozens of projects going at the same time and still manage to have them all sound a little different. Cold Callers are one of the most unique bands I’ve heard in a while. Essentially they’re playing ’60s inspired jangly power pop, but there are hints of post-punk and psychedelia coming through as well. The A-side takes it back to the roots of power pop – bringing to mind early to mid ’60s Who and Brit-obsessed American garage bands like The Choir. I dig! “Spying On Me” is in a somewhat similar vein but more overtly post-punk influenced. I’d describe the mood of the song as alluringly creepy. It’s haunting yet quite beautiful. This could almost be a Miscalculations song!

All in all, this is a fantastic debut single from Cold Callers. Both songs are really sticking in my head. Get the vinyl from Wanda Records!”

Miscalculations

Mastering Miscalculations “Kill the Whole Cast” on FDH RecordsP.Trash Records, and Rockstar Records.

“CAPITAN MARCO of the London-based punk rock fleet No Front Teeth Records is an unweary demonio for the good punk work and he was the singer of the recently deceased GAGGERS and played in a helluva other bands. He quickly calculated his remaining super-powers: writer of excellent punk poetry + wizard of super catchy melodies = MISCALCULATIONS. That’s simple math. Bam! New band going. Together with drummer SHAUN he already wrote and pounded out two LPs on Dead Beat and Rockstar Rec. and now kills everything with this third LP. Though the Miscalculations know how to add 7+7, and Marco’s gritty and snotty voice screams ’punk singer’ with every syllable he spits out, Miscalculations definitely advanced the punk sound (some may call it Post-Punk). The 12 songs on ’Kill the whole cast’ are a tasteful blend of the sound of Buzzcocks, Wire, The Statues and even some Mind Spiders with the catchy and sharp, yet laconic guitar work and the melancholic and demanding undertone of Wipers, Masshystery or The Vicious, plus some Electro-Synth-NoWave-Punk of The Units or even The Spits. Always intense, always poetic with outstanding cryptic yrics and wrapped up in cool imagery. When this album has passed they killed the whole cast / You will be obsessed when they killed the whole cast!”

Miscalculations

Mastering Miscalculations “A Silent Defence b/w Clairvoyant Stare” on No Front Teeth Records.

Two cuts of stark, angular punk from London post punks MISCALCULATIONS featuring members of The Gaggers, The Ladykillers, Jonny Cola And The A Grades and The Scraps.
The title track ‘A Silent Defence’ is from their much-acclaimed debut LP – a song about the desolation of dependence. Indignant but melodic. ‘Clairvoyant Stare’ on the B-Side is blunt and cold and lyrically vicious.

Dying Shames

Mastering Dying Shames S/T 7″ on No Front Teeth Records.

“Garage Rock ‘N’ Roll featuring members of the Ten-O-Sevens, The Gaggers, The Miscalculations, The Ricky C. Quartet, The Seminals and Los Pepes.
This is exceptionally well-written and played blend of 1960’s and 1970’s punk, rock ‘n’ roll and powerpop with nods to The Flamin’ Groovies, Small Faces and Missing Links all brought together with an underlying punk sentiment.
Recorded completely in analogue for the absolute authentic sound.”

Scraps

Check out Uber Rock‘s review:

“When you get a member of The Gaggers, Miscalculations and East End Riot kicking up a shit storm of good time old school punk rock under the moniker of The Scraps then it is impossible to fail right? Well what we have here is four tracks of just that, each one as enjoyable as the last. It’s a must buy that’s for sure.  Saving the best till last ‘Watching You’ sounds like it could fall apart at any given moment but it’s the ragged charm that’s the bait and part of its allure and I’m loving it.  As I said four tracks of ragged punk rock old school style is the order of the day and all written and played with much gusto and passion. ‘Waste My Time’ has a smudge of Buzzcocks and Ramones thrown into the mix whilst ‘Time Has Come’ is sharp with a cool as riff. Great stuff indeed. Available HERE on digital but it is apparently being pressed on vinyl as I type.”
