LOADED 44: GET READY! CD EP
Loaded 44 are the ass-shakin' punk rock band from the North East of England. Formed in 1996, guitarist-songwriter Dave is joined by Beki (Steve Ignorant's Last Supper European tour 2010) with Steve Straughan and Nelly from The Lurkers.
With a sound that has been compared to "Blondie meets the Ramones", Loaded 44 will blow you away...
>>> GET READY! is their latest CD EP released in August 2016 <<<
"...straight away you’re pulled in by this infectious high tempo buzzsaw guitar punk anthem, this is Loaded 44‘s trademark style and it’s never sounded better..." ThePunkSite.Com
"Loaded 44 are an example of the grassroots DIY attitude at it’s finest, this is an EP that anyone with a love of punk rock should buy..." ThePunkSite.Com
HI-FI SPITFIRES: NIGHTRAID CD ALBUM
Hi -Fi Spitfires are a 3 piece punk rock band, formed in mid 2008, the 'Heart Of A Punk, Soul Of A Rasta' online zine said "Hi-Fi Spitfires... blur somewhere between "Give 'Em Enough Rope" and "Inflammable Material..." Bloody brilliant in other words!
"...their debut album was impressive but Nightraid feels like an altogether more accomplished beast. Hi-Fi Spitfires are unsurprisingly heavily influenced by the likes of Stiff Little Fingers, The Clash and The Ruts, but that’s not to say that they are some dated anachronism, they take their lead from the first wave of punk rock but they have taken it and made it there own, as a result Nightraid is a contemporary slightly harder edged interpretation..." ThePunkSite.Com
"This is a very accomplished album from a band that are grass roots DIY punk rock, that alone would be a reason to support them but forget about that for a moment, just focus on the fact that this is a great album regardless of how it came into being. As long as bands like Hi-Fi Spitfires are keeping the grass roots of punk alive and well then we’ll know our scene is in safe hands..." ThePunkSite.Com
