If you remember Winnebago Deal from the first time around (they formed in 1999, toured with everyone from Blood Brothers to Mondo Generator and had the spirit of punk rock etched into their veins while still picking up major plaudits) then chances are you won’t need telling how brilliant they were, and now continue to be. If, after a four year absence, this review merely serves to give you a heads up that the barnstorming duo are back then you are welcome. Enjoy – shit’s as good as it ever was.

Future Hits 084: Whitemare

July 6th, 2011

From: Brighton, England
Lazy Equation: (Motorhead x Zeke) + Winnebago Deal

Thrash Hits Verdict:
Sometimes with all the sub-genres and the effort put in, it’s nice to just shove on a bit of balls-to-the-wall hard rock. It’s music that, once you’ve finished getting down to it, makes you hope that that wall was painted. Otherwise, you’ll have sore balls. Whitemare don’t seem to write long songs which is good for people with short attention sp

Live & Photos: Mastodon @ Glasgow ABC – 07 June 2009

June 11th, 2009

Before embarking upon a range of dates upon the European mainland, Mastodon popped over to the UK for a mini-tour of smaller venues. Chris Cope was there in Glasgow to watch a Crack The Skye extravaganza

This is loud stuff. Reaching Motorhead-esque volume levels, Mastodon seem to have laced their guitar leads with dynamite, and after a couple of songs in, the crowd’s ears are both pricking excitedly but also curling over to try and protect themselves from impending deafness.

But hey, that’s what it’s all about isn’t it?

Winnebago Deal catch the Christmas Spirit

December 22nd, 2008

Winnebago Deal, our favourite Oxford-based noisesmiths, have gone and caught the Christmas Spirit. No, they’ve not been found drunk in a ditch, greased up with brandy butter and dressed in stolen Santa costumes – they’ve gone and stuck a load of Christmas tunes over on their MySpace page.  So if you’ve ever wanted to hear some fuzzed-up, punked-off versions of ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ or ‘Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree’, well, the wait is over.

Oxford hard rockers, Winnebago Deal have announced they have been busy recording their as-yet-untitled fourth album.

They debuted some tracks at recent shows at London’s Old Blue Last on 4 July 2008 and at a last minute appearance at Truck Festival on 22 July 2008.

Ben Perrier, singer and guitarist for The Deal said: “We’ve been quiet but have been honing the next WD album and it shits all over anything we’ve done before – a lot more actual songs but not in a pussy way. It’s gonna be full of ‘hits’!”

We can’t bloody wait! Especially if it’s anywhere near as good as their last effort, Flight Of The Raven.
