From Savannah, Georgia here’s mad 5-piece RUDE DUDE AND THE GREEK FREAKS.

A collaboration of best friends creating garage rock with a healthy dose of psychedelia. Originally formed as a three-piece in the summer of 2016, the band picked up momentum fast, playing numerous shows throughout town. They released their debut album ‘Acid Bath’ in 2017 .

This Friday they launch their second album entitled s/t on Graveface Records‘ brand new, sister imprint called Graveface Records & Curiosities. Just ahead of it here’s single DAN HALEN. A mental stoner outburst feeling like a volcanic eruption in overdrive. Spacey shit you can go totally bananas to. Tempestuous havoc dominated by a vicious avalanche of deranged guitar riffs heading inflammably towards an extended, hellish outro jam. Bingo!

WHAM BLOODY BAM SHANG-A-LANG! Experience the whole mad shebang right here…


s/t is out 31 August – all info and order facilties right here.

Who: An alt duo formed in Wales last year 2017.

Sound:A unique take on British rock music, incorporating elements from
the infamous ‘Madchester’ scene, London’s punk movement, electro-rock,
Britpop, shoegaze and American garage havoc.”

Influences: The Stone Roses, Pavement, Oasis, , Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr,
The Cure, Jesus and The Mary Chain, Sticky Fingers, The National, Basement,
Spacemen 3, Television, Tame Impala, Gorillaz and Bodega

Score: Here’s a highly motivated and inspiring 2-piece hitting bullseye with their
striking debut EP, entitled Rest In Vain. An overall imposing firstborn notable for
its darksome sentiments, yet infectiously groovy tone. Here are five songs of which
each one can stand on its own. Different moods, different colors, different beats.
From the gloomy rocker On The Run, mixing Sonic Youth and Interpol to – Turn Up
The Volume’s favorite cut
– the reflective swagger of the title track injected with poetic
The Cure guitars. Opener Ace Ventura is family of the latter, sounding – thankfully – nothing like Jim Carrey and impressive closer Deja Vu feels like a slo-mo The Jesus
and Mary Chain
momentum on their way back from a nightmarish trip and Dry
Up Your Mind
‘s mid-tempo bass timbre feels claustrophobic. Hats off! Top debut!
This fresh duo will draw, unquestionably, your sonic attention. Discover them here…

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘Alone With Everybody’ by RICHARD ASHCROFT
Released: 26 June 2000 / debut album

ALL MUSIC wrote: “He still believes that music has a soul — with or without his former band. He is certainly a rock star and a believer in love, death, musical spirituality, and individuality. That is what made the Verve a great rock band in the first place, but Ashcroft’s superior drive
to do something real only makes him and his music more endearing. He is looking ahead, not wishing for past adventures. He celebrates life, pure and simple.”

Score: 4/5 – Full review here.

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: This is Mister Northern Soul Voice! My fav tracks: A Song
For The Lovers / I Get My Beat / New York / C’Mon People (We’re Making It Now)
