Back with 2 new Pre-Orders, C.H.E.W. - Feeding Frenzy LP (out Friday 12th October) and Vanilla Poppers - I Like Your Band 7" EP. (out Friday 28th September)
One of the best hardcore LPs you will hear this year and a total banger of a 7" from the Melbourne/ Cleveland smashers.
C.H.E.W. - Feeding Frenzy LP
Feeding Frenzy is the real deal. No, wait, let me start over: C.H.E.W. are the realest of deals. Their debut LP starts with a flurry of drums and goes straight into the kinda agro-heavy, no-bullshit, straight-to-the-point hardcore that gets the adrenaline flowing so fast you can practically see it burst out of your chest and march on over to the front of the show to get a circle pit going. Most punk packs a punch; this simply pulverises, in the best possible way.
Four anarcho kids with righteous ideals, C.H.E.W. are here to make you sit up and take notice. Well, what else can you do when the blitzkrieg rains forth on you as powerfully and scintillatingly as this? Once it’s started, the album barely lets up for a second. Even when they slow down for a spacious creepy-crawl just before the midway point, you can feel the tension ratcheting up another notch or 12, just to keep you anticipating the rush of hi-velocity chaos that’s surely about to hit home (and surely does).
This isn’t an album of summer jams or simple hooks – it’s pure energy and conviction, that knows you’ve had a rough day and wanna stew in it, but also knows how to make you feel affirmed by that experience. It’s the sound of Punch drawing fake moustaches on police ‘wanted’ posters; the sound of hardcore fire walking while flicking pebbles into the furrowed brows of punk pretenders everywhere. Just under 31 minutes of noise that’ll leave you floored and totally swept up in adoration. Hope and pray to whatever deities or inanimate objects you place your faith in that this band ends up playing a town near you soon, because this record frankly rules.

Vanilla Poppers - I Like Your Band 7" EP
Released to coincide with the bands debut European tour, dates below
The best rock’n’roll doesn’t faff about. It gets straight in there and gets shit done. This is an ethos Vanilla Poppers seem to have taken to heart – formed the very day Melbourne-hailing singer Christina Pap arrived in the town of Cleveland, Ohio, they’re a pointed blast of too-busy-to-give-a-fuck rawness and vital urgency. Punk rock doing what punk rock does best, basically: getting to the point with noise and purpose, leaving your dazed but exhilarated ears to pick up the pieces afterwards.
Their I Like Your Band 7” is a testament to that – never less than scintillating, at least partially thanks to garage-soaked riffs that are never less than heroically, bottom-shakingly addictive. You’ll wish you’d thought of the hook to opening track Get Away From Me, even as it makes you wanna regress to a primal state and do dumb stuff like chew on broken glass to see how long it takes you to bleed. In fact, Rocket From The Crypt would be proud of most of the guitar work on display here, although with Pap on hand to dispense her proclamations via a hardcore holler, it’s plain to see they’re making their own mark rather than walking in anyone else’s shadow.
Tired of the same old three-chord stodge? Need a palette cleanser to wash away the taste of so much stale punk? Vanilla Poppers are the perfect solution; a spittle-flecked rush of blood to the head that’ll remind you why you fell in love with this music in the first place. Meet your new heroes.
