Tainted Black are a quintet from Stockholm, Sweden, who started out over a decade ago with their first lyrics written on a piece of paper. They finally released their debut and self titled album last summer, and new single, ‘Nirvana’, is the second track – and first video – to come from that record.
A little over a decade after punk kicked over the traces with its back to basics approach, a gaggle of lumberjack-shirted miscreants from Seattle picked up the baton and ran with it.
Reared on diet of hardcore, MC5 and The Stooges, Mudhoney were at the vanguard of the grunge revolution and their debut mini-album Superfuzz Bigmuff remains a defining document of the times.
The Cutthroat Brothers have been called “The Sweeney Todds Of Rock” because of their razor-sharp riffs and dangerously catchy songs. The pair, based in Tacoma, Washington, are both veterans of a regional rock scene, with Donny Paycheck formerly playing drums for Zeke (a hardcore band who made their name playing with Pearl Jam, Iron Maiden, and Mudhoney among others).
