Things we didn’t know a month ago: June 2017
Flaming June brought us some flaming great new tunes. Here’s Keith Goldhanger’s monthly round-up for June 2017, providing a few more musical highlights you may need to know about.
June comes, Junes goes, the year plods on and the tunes continue to come along sound-tracking this dreary, anxious, depressing summer of concern. That Der Plan tune is now out in full therefore I’ll make a request.
Just once please someone, just when I’m staggering past a tent and you’re DJ’ing and you go look there’s that chap who really wants to hear this before he goes to bed.
Play this for me please.
Summer 2017 – Bloody hell. This is pretty mental too
Rock music this month has introduced us to Sleeptalking. I hate stuff like this I usually say to myself but if you going to do this kind a shit . . . . then well done – top-notch stuff. They turned up early evening during June, climbed all over the Tooting Tram and did this.
Listen to this blokes voice – lots of you will love this Sabbath sounding euphoric anthem owning group of blokes and maybe there’s some more obvious bands you’ll think they sound like and your decisions will be better than mine because I’m not usually very keen on this metal rock music stuff that I imagine Faith No More sound like.
Except this. . .
This rocks and I hate using that expression as well – terrible uncool thing to say about any music. But it rocks. All those people in their identical brand new Guns n Roses t-shirts all being turfed out onto the Tubes that same night don’t know what they missed over in Tooting for nothing to pay to get into (except having to put up with those knobs on security in that place I suppose). As is common after situations such as this I found that Louder Than War had featured their EP earlier in the year.
This is my tune of the month though.
I can’t be arsed to find out anything to tell you about Downtown Boys (main pic). I’m still recovering from Glastonbury but I think they’re playing in London before the year is out.
What a tune! And one we’ll all be singing along to soon.
