A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius? George Swan Releases Stinging Double Whammy

Bluesier than Robert Johnson; more hip-thrusting than Elvis Presley; more riffs than Jimmy Page. George Swan achieves none of these and less. We proudly present one of the most significant musical happenings of the season, the historic pairing of George Swan’s twin tours de force: “Jellyfish” and “Smellyfish”.

 

The echo chamber fuzz bomb of “Jellyfish”, topped with its organ solo, is a lightning bolt of drama The Rolling Stones could only dream of; “Smellyfish”, the tender, heart-wrenching piano-led sibling, speaks directly to the listener’s heart and wrings every drop of emotion from the cosmos:

“You asked me if I’d tried jellyfish,

I said, no, I didn’t realise it was a dish”

“You said you got stung by one before,

The first time you saw one by the shore

The burn was so bad it made you cry

The vinegar helped

It made you smell like a cute little French fry”

Profound; astounding; words beyond meaning – some would say words without meaning. George is everyman. George is a gentleman. George is possibly Superman. This is an experience not to be missed, unless you absolutely have to.

Born in an unspecified swamp and raised by alligators an unclear number of years ago, the legend of George Swan is swathed in half-truths and mystery. What is known is that he moved to the small town of Steveston in British Columbia, Canada, at the age of 18.  He found, gainful employment on the docks,

unloading fishing boats, his childhood affinity with water-based life clearly proving to be to his benefit. By 1997, the entire Canadian west coast fishing industry had collapsed.  The one positive to come out of the calamity being two bands formed with other assorted misfits in life – The Rash and Patsy Decline.  Now, George has emerged as an artist in his own right, with no fewer than three solo albums – it’s swamp rock with a nourishing diet of beer and wild salmon.

Review: Anarchy Reigns’ Hard and Heavy Tune ‘Hypocrisy’

 

 

 

 

With social divide, negative political impact and war raging on, people look to leaders, artists and professionals to guide them into the light, and this time Anarchy Reigns are taking a shot at being the voice of the people.

The new track ‘Hypocrisy’ is a gritty, politically charged, fury fueled anthem. The boys from Anarchy Reigns have constructed an opus which is fantastically delivered, and received with open arms.

 

 

The heavy gain and volume turned up to 11, the phat and fuzzy classic metal sounds and the melodic sorcery that hitch so brilliantly conveys, all come together to make this track, and we are so glad that they did.

Be sure to check out the track as well as all the other great content coming from the Anarchy Reigns camp:

Tidalwaves of Feedback from Sweden’s Pink Milk

With Kevin Shields still on the world’s longest holiday, the title of feedback royalty is still up for grabs. The shoegaze scene has exploded over the last twelve months, though nothing has really stood out as being particularly original or worthy of repeated listens. Pink Milk, a drum/guitar duo from Sweden have made the first noteworthy attempt to clinch the title.

If you’re going to do the guitar feedback thing, you might as well go for broke. Duly, the echo and size of the sound here is almost intoxicating, I can only imagine there are casualties at their live shows.  The lead track from their forthcoming album, Kill 4 U, is Pink Milk at their tantalising best, crashing, cloying guitar riffs and zephyr-like vocals, it’s the sound of bellowing whales above water.

The buzz the band is creating, from Kerrang to 6 Music, have made their soon to be released album, Purple, one of the most anticipated among rock fans this year, with their cover version of Foreigner’s I Want to Know What Love is? taking the original song to all sorts of dark places and dragging you kicking and screaming along. Drink deeply from Pink Milk before they get huge.
