THE WILDHEARTS – Diagnosis (EP Review)

Who Are The Wildhearts? The Wildhearts are an English rock band, formed in 1989 in Newcastle upon Tyne.

KILLER BEE – Tapes from the Attic (Album Review)

Killer Bee‘s new EP Tapes from the Attic is presumably just that. Five songs cultivated from some old cassette recordings found in Anders Ronnblom‘s attic. And all five are purely 80s sounding (although the band only began recording in the 90s). Hooks, catches and choruses abound, they were recorded during the band’s first go around. […]
