It might seem unfair, but a new album is always going to be judged by the one that preceded it. So, let’s get this out of the way as quickly as possible; Rented World is not as good as On The Impossible Past. In fact, it doesn’t really come close. If you’re looking for another record charged with the kind of electricity that hums between the sweat-covered walls and low ceilings of beery basement venues or more songs that chronicle the mundanity and nostalgia of small town adolescence, you need to accept the fact that The Menzingers have moved on.

Future Hits 153: Aeroplane Flies High

Aeroplane Flies High
From: Widnes, UK
Lazy equation: Grunge + Revival
URL: Facebook // Bandcamp // Twitter // Website

Thrash Hits verdict: With influences ranging all the way from stalwarts, Smashing Pumpkins and Alice In Chains to the female touch of Hole and Babes in Toyland to the noise rock of Metz and Part Chimp, it’s clear that Aeroplane Flies High enjoy music along the grunge spectrum. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course. Having formed in 2009, the current line-up met at a Melvins gig and slowly but surely, they seem to be gathering pace.

I’ve spent a few days listening to The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here on and off and find myself struggling to say anything about if of any real worth other than, “It’s just not as good as Black Gives Way To Blue.” I mean… what more, as the reader and potential purchaser of the album, do you really need?

You can see from the picture that the mega-selling Seattle grungers appeal to OAPs, but Nirvana are also loved by infants as well. Check out this kid’s parents waking him up with ‘Breed’. His reaction is… impressive.

March 27th 2008. After a 40 minute wait, in true egocentric rock’n’roll style, Velvet Revolver finally took to the stage at the Brighton Centre for what proved to be their final performance, and this reviewer’s eyes bore witness to something quite magical. Sadly, Velvet Revolver was a short-lived fairytale, one that ended with yet another stay in the state pen from front man Scott Weiland, and his subsequent departure from VR to reunite with his real family – Stone Temple Pilots.
