The LTW Playlist W/C 8th August 2011 (Rebellion special)
The Louder Than War Playlist
Each week we present ”ËSix Of The Best’ ”â the six tracks that are getting our feet tapping here at LTW Towers”Â¦ They can be brand new; they can be old ”â either way they are vying for space on the stereo!!
This weekend LTW decamped to Blackpool for the Rebellion Festival ”â so this week the playlist is comprised of ten bands (well six wouldn’t be enough!) who provided some festival highlights.
Playlist W/C 8th August 2011
Jello Biafra and The Guantanamo School of Medicine ”â ”ËDot com Monte Carlo”Ë ”â Taken from the recently released second album ”ËEnhanced Method’s Of Questioning’ ”â Difficult to describe just how impactive Jello & Co. were (Review) by far his finest material post Dead Kennedy’s. Not surprisingly Jello doesn’t do promo video’s!!
A.T.V ”Ë Action Time & Vision’ ”â One of the earliest ”Ëpunk’ bands – front-man Mark Perry still found time to insult huge sections of the audience!
The Cravats ”ËIn Your Eyes’ ”â The Cravats took to the Bizarre Bazaar stage on the Friday night, and easily demonstrated that they continue to push the boundaries even after all this time (Review). ”ËIn Your Eyes’ was initially released in October 1980 on Small Wonder Records.
Subhumans ”ËSubvert City’ Subhumans just get stronger and stronger- Headlined Saturday night on the Olympia stage. Like Biafra, not really a band for promo video’s ”â this footage being taken from a 2005, now deleted video “All Gone Live”Â
Toyah ”ËIeya’ ”â Toyah took to the stage Friday night and played a set of predominately early material including ”ËIeya’ which was first released by Safari Records in May 1980 ”â none of the YouTube clips adequately demonstrate just how good this was.
Street Dogs ”ËRattle and Roll’ ”â Took to the Ballroom Stage Saturday evening, within minutes had created the biggest circle pit of the entire weekend. Opening track from their current self titled album on Hellcat Records.
TV Smith ”ËTrue Believers’ ”â TV Smith played a powerful acoustic set (accompanied by Leigh Heggerty) drawing material from The Adverts, Explorers and his more recent solo offerings. ”ËTrue Believers’ is taken from his recently released album ”ËComing Into Land’
Bouncing Souls ”ËTrue Believers’ TV Smith isn’t the only artist with a track called ”ËTrue Believers’ ”â Bouncing Souls took to the Ballroom stage Friday night, this track being one of the sets highlights..
Eastfield ”ËAnother Boring Eastfield Song’ ”â One of the best Eastfield performances, and witnessed by a huge crowd who (shock, horror) saw Jessie assume ”Ërock star’ posturing as he leapt from the drum riser! New album ”ËDetonation Junction’ is out now ”â full Eastfield interview to follow soon.
Strawberry Blondes ”ËRise Up’ – The Blondes continue to divide opinion; however Saturdays performance on The Arena stage showed that live they know what they are doing.
Title track from their first album released by Deck Cheese Records in 2007.
