Spoilers share brand new single “No Pressure” & announce UK Tour 2016

Anti Vibe”, the debut LP from London-based garage outfit Spoilers, is a statement, recalling the punchier elements of Dischord Records post-hardcore whilst also drawing inspiration from motorik krautrock rhythms. Brought together by a teenhood friendship and a chance meeting at Deerhunter's ATP Festival, the four-piece cite inspiration from the likes of Fugazi, Sonic Youth, Thee Oh Sees & Male Bonding.

Seven That Spells - The Death and Resurrection of Krautrock: IO

OK this is how things should be from now on – after listening to this album. I’ll start asking for allowance for dangerous and unhealthy mental work from several bands & labels! That’s all! They can do their shit but I shouldn’t be the one to face the music!
 
Now back to the album. I wasn’t aware of Seven That Spells (and how happy I was back then!)… now that I’m aware all that happiness has gone away. This band was formed in 2003 and this is their 11th release so far! I’ll be damned! It’s truly awful to experience that “neo-retro” prog thing every once in a while, where anything from the late 60s and early 70s must sound cool, progressive, innovative and awesome.

Eloy - Reincarnation on Stage

I still remember me circa 1987... as an 8 year old kid, still rather short, trying to reach the LPs on the medium shelf, just to browse and being particularly intrigued by the really psychedelic cover of Eloy’s “Ocean” that I had inherited… a year later, as I was more into Greek folk music at the time, I was intrigued but as my command of English was lacking still and my overall exposure to foreign cultures, was still I suppose not fully at its peak, I actually didn’t revisit the middle shelve until half a year later.
