ATAMINA- Sycophantic Friends - LP - MAKKUM RECORDS / RED WIG

click to enlarge Another discovery from Ghana#s Kologo music scene, and Atamina is one of its most radically socio-critical and political protagonists. He had already a collaborative track with KING AYISOBA on "This Is Kologo Power!", and one of his songs was featured as well on MOJO magazines "Revolution Blues" compilation. Stripped-down hypnotic beats and obnoxious rants. https://atamina.bandcamp.com/releases

COOLHAVEN- Rode Pruik - 10" - RED WIG

click to enlarge Limited edition of 300 copies, 10"vinyl combined with a 24-page comicbook, featuring artwork by Johannes van de Weert, former singer of RONDOS. Rotterdam's COOLHAVEN performing cover-versions of the RONDOS and TANDSTICKORSHOCKS, combining the minimal Punk style of the late 70s with Gabber-Hardcore-Beat, typical for Rotterdam in the 90s. And it works brilliantly! Not only a great tribute resp. homage to their hometown, doing more than justice to the originals. Couldn't find a link to listen to, so you just have to believe me, it's not only an enormously enjoyable record, but also highly educational!

DAIKIRI- Marcel Supra - LP - RED WIG / WHOSBRAIN RECORDS

click to enlarge Limited edition on opaque-pink vinyl! DAIKIRI is a drums and bass duo from Metz/France. Psychedelic noise and epileptic speed-funk. Recently on tour in France with MELT-BANANA, and previously released a split-7" with DON VITO, which you may give you an idea of their hyperactive eruptions. Also for fans of LIGHTNING BOLT and ARAB ON RADAR, if you can stand their comically high-pitched, screechy vocals. https://daikiri.bandcamp.com/album/marcel-supra

DUDS- Immediate - LP - RED WIG

click to enlarge The 2nd album by this fantastic band from Manchester/UK, following their already amazing debut "Of A Nature Or Degree" (released on CASTLE FACE). 12 new tracks with a more honed and refined sound. Still based on the caustic Post-Punk (like early 80s greats such as the FIRE ENGINES), combined with the No Wave Funk-Punk hybrid of LIQUID LIQUID and/or the BUSH TETRAS. And reminiscent of legendary british band THE HIGSONS from the early 80s (or Bristols SOEZA from the 90s). After all a really unique take on Post-Punk, with a definite dancefloor appeal! And a perfect addition to the RED WIG label-roster, alongside similarly minded bands like MASSICOT and O.T.P.M.D. - https://opaltapes.com/album/immediate

click to enlarge Full album (14 songs) from Glasgow based musician (ex-TATTIE TOES), released in 2017. With his acoustic bass-guitar, simple percussions and vocals, he's making songs that somehow combine the music of Elliott Smith and Mike Watt... http://howiereeve.bandcamp.com/

HOWIE REEVE / KUMIO KURACHI- Double Rainbow - LP - RED WIG

click to enlarge Collaborative LP featuring 9 new tracks by experimental punk troubadour and avant-folk musical ranter Howie Reeve from Glasgow/Scotland, with Andy Kerr (ex NOMEANSNO) playing guitar on all songs. On the other side his Japanese "brother in spirit" Kumio Kurachi, multi-instrumentalist/singer (and not to forget painter) with uniquely performed 5 compositions. Comparisons anyone? How about "Elliott Smith meets Mike Watt meets the Pop Group"...
Here's a pretty cool review: https://thequietus.com/articles/29600-double-rainbow-by-howie-reeve-kumio-kurachi-review And here's listen to: https://howiereeve.bandcamp.com/album/double-rainbow

HYPERCULTE- Massif Occidental - LP - RED WIG

click to enlarge 2nd full album by Minimal-Trance-Pop Post-Disco-Krautrock duo from Geneva/Switzerland, Vincent Bertholet (ORCHESTRE TOUT PUISSANT MARCEL DUCHAMP) and Simone Aubert (MASSICOT). Playing bass and drums, sharing vocals, and adding lots of electronic patterns, they are producing fascinating songs, as hypnotically beautiful as mesmerizingly capturing. As great as the other bands bith are involved in, like a more experimental and modern version of LIQUID LIQUID, ESG or the SLITS.... From Geneva with love. 8 songs on this LP (including a funky groovin' cover of GRAUZONE's "Eisbär"), with printed innersleeve and download-code included.
