There is no better use of your Friday night than watching Retox, Tropics and Pettybone tearing East London’s tits off

What do you do when you’re a bona fide powerhouse in the world of grind, power violence and noisecore? When you’ve already assured your place in the genres’ histories thanks to your role in – among others – The LocustSome Girls, and All Leather? Well, the answer is that you go and keep forming new bands to blow people’s tits off in new and exciting ways. Such is the way of Retox, the current musical vehicle that Justin Pearson is using to batter audience’s braincells flat with – have a listen and see what we mean.

If you’ve got any braincells still working after that, then you’d be wise to get them along to CAMP Basement in East London tomorrow night, as the gig that Retox are playing there will surely finish the job.

Future Hits 177: EXES + first listen to Reptilian

July 18th, 2014

EXES
From: London, UK
URLs: Facebook // Bandcamp

Our verdict: This is a rock band! Formed from the ashes of Tropics – a band we were quite partial to – they have become slightly odder in their melodies and there seem to be more melodies on what evidence we’ve heard so far, which we are very much down with. The great news is that there’s still a lot of rocking to be done by Exes and so they’ve let us put their new song, ‘Reptilian’ up on this site. That’s bloody good. Here’s a wee interview with Jodie Cox too. Read, listen, enjoy.

Interview: Retox’s Justin Pearson discusses The Locust, All Leather, and just what rises From the Graveyard of the Arousal Industry

November 25th, 2011

Justin Pearson Retox Thrash Hits

Retox’s Justin Pearson walks it like he talks it. In addition to being a founder member of The Locust, he’s been in more bands than most bands have recorded albums. He runs a record label. He’s written a book. He could keep Santa Claus and his entire retinue of elves busy all year round if he ordered them to distribute the sheer number of f*cks he choose not to give. We caught up with him for a chat before Retox take on east London at CAMP Basement tonight.

Watch Narrows perform ‘Gypsy Kids’ as you’ve never seen it before

May 19th, 2011

It’s something of a mystery to us why we’ve not written more about how megaton-level awesome Narrows are – especially given how their line-up boasts ex- and current members of bands such as Botch, These Arms Are Snakes, and Tropics (among others). When we saw them play the Camden Underworld just over a year ago, they were so loud they nearly deafened us even after they blew out the venue’s entire PA.

Why bring this up now? Well, when we saw our compadré, Andy Parker, caught them in Brighton last night, he shot a live bootleg that was sufficiently amazing – and unique – that we just had share it with you.
