DEATH IS NOT GLAMOROUS (norway)
Pretty fucking amazing jump-about melodic-and-then-some
hardcore pop from Norway on Dead & Gone records. Falling
somewhere between Jerseys Best Dancers and the s/t Lifetime
records, mixed with the tiniest inklings of incredibly awesome driving 90's
indie/emo rock. In fact, I'm g'na go as far as saying 95% Lifetime, 5%
Cross My Heart-ish. Mostly like Lifetime, though.
DOWN AND OUTS (liverpool)
Are you losing touch? Get a grip, son.
Street punk power pop, songs about birds, mates
and tha' on Dead & Gone Records.
OFFSHORE RADIO (leeds/sunderland)
We've all got a cross to bare these days..
Clash-inspired three piece singalong punk,
ex-Mercury League, and current Dauntless Elite.
HAIL BRETHREN (manchester)
