Stars for The Many

Stars for The Many

"The For the Many Tour is about using our platform to bring people together, influence change and help create a society in which we are a little bit more equal." (The Blinders) It's not just that guitars are back in the forefront of activism, it's also that music still wants to save the world. Good. Big Joanie, Jon McClure (Reverend & The Makers), Grace Petrie - oh so many more, allied with friends/fans at events, on line, wherever, to make the future look brighter. No matter what happens next. Politics -v- dirty tricks. I went off on one, a few weeks ago ('12/12/19: Hate -v- Love?') but am switched on the people powered punky positivity pulsing against the elite establishment's excremental evil. Fckn adore the artists in TheZineUK's story. Taking…

THE REZNER are coming for ya!

THE REZNER are coming for ya!

Rock has impacted this insane 2019 with some stand out newcomers who are here to soundtrack our most uncertain future yet. Aficionados of credible potential, do get The Rezner on your thrill-radar for 2020. All band images by Mood Foto Above, left to right; Liam Palmer - bass guitar, Jose Barradas - drums, Sam Stone - vocals/guitar and Redley Flowerdew - guitar/vocals. The Rezner have been faves of various team members of TheZineUK since a tip-off a year ago, and they only become even more so, with each release and every time we see them play. Of course, we asked if they could please play The Music People Party 2019 on 17th December - and if we could grab a quick interview? Many thanks for both, lads. The Rezner :…

12/12/19: Hate -v- Love?

Free downloads;http://spellingmistakescostlives.com The most important/devisive General Election of British History. By the 2030's will we be reliving the 1930's horrorism? I hope not (but watch the enablers try). Leader of the opposition, Jeremy Corbyn has already won in some ways. Socialism is on the agenda of politics. Big time. Being sociable, neighbourly, sharing, having empathy, socialising. What is not to LOVE? (It feels like Billionaires, Capitalism and other Blue Meanies, HATE humanity and it's planet) 2010 onwards. A decade decayed: The repulsively rich stealing from the heart-breakingly poor (unnecessary "Austerity" of the Conservatives / Liberal Democrats #ConDem pact) and the Economic Murder inflicted by Universal (dis)Credit and the DWP (deliberately wicked policies). Boorish Boris Johnson has also already won in many ways. A right wing, fascist coup that deliberately hoodwinks…

Review; ‘The Movies’ by PYX

Woosh. So just where have PYX come from? Maybe I'm a little late to this party but this single is kinda amazing. Dream poppin all over the place in all the right places. Okay, so I do have some info. I was just trying to build some suspense. Sue me. Wesley Triffitt - who is no stranger to the Kent music scene (it says on his press release) - initially cut his teeth with local lo-fi stars Tin Foil Astronaut. His new project quickly established itself as a listeners’ favourite on Fresh On The Net after debuting onAbbie McCarthy’s esteemed BBC Introducing In Kent radio show. https://open.spotify.com/track/3muM00MgqjWhmg0a13KgOf Subsequent supporters included national BBC Introducing, BBC 6Music and Tom Robinson.

The Assist – 2019 WTF!

RKC rising. Rachel K Collier interview.

Rachel K Collier released her new LP 'RKC' a few weeks back. With major support from Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1 (and also a major whizz at the Ableton Live shenanigans), she's setting the internet - and the world- on fire with her tracks. A rising star for sure. https://youtu.be/bY8Qy_SnZMo We broke into her busy schedule to ask the her some questions Hey Rachel. Nice to meet you. Tell us how long you've been producing music RKC : "I've been producing profesionally now since 2015, which is when I released my first self produced EP 'Words You Never Heard' on Indie Electronic label Love & Other Things - but even listening back to that EP now, I think my production has come a long way since then.

ACKERMAN; ’84 Palms’

https://soundcloud.com/yourfriendackerman/84-palms Oh America, you are spoiling us. Which makes a change from you spoiling the world (joke there, of course!) I, personally, have always loved the US of A. The place of dreams and music scenes. Which brings us to this shoegazing offering by Ackerman - who are multi-instrumentalistsJordan McAfee-Hahn, Bernardo Ochoa, and Matti Dunietz - an experimental rock group and multimedia collective that is impossible to pin down (it says on their press release!). They were born out of Brooklyn's eclectic alternative and psyche scene in 2014. All we know is that this song tickles all of our indie funny bones and takes us to a kind of place you are only allowed in, if your band badges match the taste of the staff who serve you.

The Dabhands. Double lives, single minds.

The Dabhands are one of the developing bands who are woven into the fabric of our alternative rock tales. Photography by Rob Blackham Last Spring they graced our Camden Monarch music social.

Doc; Spring Part 1

Doc; Spring Part 1

Since Spring 2014, alternative rock has seeded a fresh Entertainment Industry. Despite an Armageddon / Black Mirror austerity feel to modern life, this escapism lights up our dystopian darkness. TheZineUK documents a small facet of positive music movements. Click here to see Spring 2019 - Part 1. Unity. Creativity's Civilisation Blueprint. Argh Kid : "Has it been a great decade for music?" Travellers Tunes: "Its been a criminally under documented one." Discuss? If the last five years alone are anything to go by, it's been an unbelievable, virtual secret. Nowadays "faces" of the DIY punky scenes are not national music press, but the rising subjects, creators and enablers of new media. Mainstream say "print is dead". Music Women like Sahera Walker and Elly Bailey sell out of their printed zines.…
