Something For The Weekend – Three Punk/Post Punk Bands From Berlin

It’s a beautiful lockdown sunny bank holiday here in the UK as we commemorate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. Given that reactionary politicians at home and abroad seem to peddle the same fascist policies as the people my grandfather and his generation fought against one wonders if lessons will ever be learnt.

The Cluster – Again

The Cluster is the one man project of Bogotá based Juan Bolivar.  Again is the first single from under The Cluster name and is a brooding post-punk track.

Let me give it another couple of spins first. As Google Translate failed to decipher the band’s native Latvian into English I have … Continue reading

яблоня- еврокафе

Moscow’s Apple Tree have just released their first new track in just over year. Titled еврокафе (eurocafeby if google translate has got it right) it’s a coldwave inspired post punk track with a slow burning sound. The female vocals sound downcast and gloomy whilst the lyrics forlornly hope for better things. As it continues to … Continue reading
