CD Review: Scary Kids Scaring Kids - The Only Medicine
They hail from Arizona, they scream a lot. And I have no doubt if you presented this single to my 4-year-old nephew it would probably scare him.

CD Review: Kids In Glass Houses - Dirt
Having been a huge fan of Kids In Glass Houses for a number of years, ever since the early demo's of 'Skeletons' (which later became 'Saturday') or 'Pick Flowers, Not Fights' (which later became 'Fisticuffs') through 'Epocalypse' and 'Smart Casual' and with an amazing live show to boot, the band have set my expectations incredibly high.

Live Review: Lostprophets + Kids In Glass Houses
What better way to spend Valentine's Day than with 2300 others rocking out for nostalgia's sake. Saying that, there are plenty of younger people in attendance, who are clearly too young to remember the beginning of the last decade.

CD Review: Further - Punk Rock Vampires
Australian indie punksters Further have been garnering the sort of press you'd sell your gran for, both in this hemisphere and especially the other, where they're revered by seemingly every disenfranchised Antipodean youth with a chip on his or her backpacked shoulder.

CD Review: Outl4w - Get in the Van
Just because they're kids with guitars, don't expect Outl4w to be in the same mould as McFly/Busted. You won't find any watered down rock for the teeny-bop masses on this album.

Live Review: Marvel + King Tonne + Innocent OJs + Bazooka Joe
The evening kicked off with new lads BAZOOKA JOE. I am told that this was their first show. They definitely deserve credit for their performance, they put on an excellent show with some pretty damn good pop/ punk tunes which got the kids pretty warmed up -like they needed it - I think it was the sweatiest show I have been to all year.) Plenty of people were up dancing especially for the outstanding cover version of Celine Dione's "My heart will go on." Watch out for them in the near future.

The band was audibly influenced by the mid-nineties UK melodic hardcore scene and bands such as Hooton 3 Car and Broccoli, with less overt references to the noisier end of America's second-wave emo (early Get Up Kids, Small Brown Bike), and the oft-touted progenitors of gruff sounding punk rock, Leatherface.

CD Review: The KBC - Pride Before the Fall
Dance-punk... it's one of those catch-all, media type short-term genres isn't it? You know the score: don't bother with giving some thought to the task you've been set, just dig out some old Shed Seven b-sides (don't get dewy eyed on me now), add a bit of hissing hi-hat and a dollop of white funk bass and the indie disco is your empire.

Live Review: Deadline + The Mingers + The Black Bats
Despite what the trendy music press may tell you kids, punk's not dead. The fact that I don't think I've ever seen the Fenton this busy is good testament to the fact that there's plenty of people who still believe in angry music that has something to say (and sorry Blink 182/New Found Glory fans but "having something to say" does not equate to 33-year-olds pretending to be 15.

Nu-metal has become increasingly popular over recent years, so much so that it can now be afforded its own place in the compilation CD market, no longer confined to an occasional Kerrang cover disk; one such recent compilation is the Supercharged album, a twenty track mix of nu-metal, pop-punk and primarily Americanised, now mainstream, rock marketed directly to the young kids at Garage and Star.

Live Review: Vampire Weekend + Noah and the Whale
Start spreading the news; Vampire Weekend have hit the big time.
