Hullo, you wildling watchers of Westfield, this is our always late EP round-up, where we scrounge, scrawl and sweep sweet singular sonic sensations. This is so late you could say it’s the very late EP round-up.

Remember: don’t adjust your opinion. We are just a Shithole of a website (TM)

DID YOU  KNOW? U2′s Songs of Innocence will always be in your iTunes, no matter how many workarounds and fixes you try. Like an Eldritch horror, The Ancient Spectacled One  will not stop haunting you. Dream well, sleep tight.

Oh, well, sigh, sorry for the delays, we were closing this website but we remembered we left some Jaffa Cakes inside the server (mmm, warm cake-o-biscuits). We promise not to do another one of these ever again. Unless y’all ask nicely. And tells us to lay off the Jaffas. Continue reading “Our last EP round-up!

slouchercd1

Hullo, you pilfering pilchards o’ Pimlico, this is our always late EP round up, where we trawl through the titanic troves of tinnitus-inducing music and bring you the best of what’s around. Or at least what WE think it’s the best of what’s around.

Remember: don’t adjust your opinion. We are just a shithole of a website (TM)

DID YOU  KNOW: Matthew McConaughey enjoyed writing EP reviews even before he got paid to review. FACT.

Oh, well, sigh, sorry for the delays, we were closing this website but the paperwork would’ve been a killer. In our usual droll manner, we will compare each EP to something unrelated, so the theme this time ’round is Mr. McCoughanaghahspcheck?ghey characters. Also: I dragged Sam out of retirement. JOY.

All conversations are transcribed and a story is weaved around as a first person narrative. We hope you enjoy this new feature at Sloucher! Continue reading “Chastity Belt – No Regerts”

Burns like fire : Stewed, Screwed and Tattooed

Sometimes you need a mellow day filled with naps, soft cheese and violins and some days you just want to snap that violin in half and turn your record player all the way up. You blast good old fashioned punk rock to keep you from destroying everything in your house and it feels effing amazing . This is one of those days for me. I have so much energy built up, if I don’t stop dancing (flailing) around my house while listening to Burns like Fire I may just accidentally rip the sink out of the wall with my pent up hulk strength. It’s such a good release to play air guitar , slide across the floor and to jump off the couch and impress even myself with my herkie skills.

Having been together since 2009, Burns Like Fire has built up quite a local following and from what I hear the shows are something not to be missed. From playing a set while having food poisoning ( and rocking it before vomiting off the stage) to awesome dance moves and suggestive gyrating, this band know how to please a crowd. Unfortunately their tours have only been on the east coast of the US and I have had only youtube videos of their awesome moves to get me through until i can experience the real thing. Le’ sigh…

I sent these boys a few questions so you lovely readers could get to know burns like fire in a more intimate way..so here goes read up and enjoy! Continue reading “Burns like fire : Stewed, Screwed and Tattooed”

Dan Sartain – Too Tough To Live

A while ago we talked you about motherfucking Dan Sartain and his rockabilly ways. We did. Now, just because we sneaked into FatCat‘s secret vaults, realised we were supposed to turn left in Albuquerque and then go into One Little Indian ‘s vaults instead, we pillaged it and reviewed his newest album, Too tough to live, which barely manages to hit 20 minutes but still gives you 13 rocking songs.

Interview – Firesuite

It was the week after their Tramlines triathlon, but Firesuite were not taking a single moment off. They had new songs to practise and old songs to fine tune. They are in a corner room at Stag Works and after fiddling with some pedal settings and joking for a few moments, they proceed to rip out a few tunes.

We then go into the main courtyard, a couple of cigarrettes are lit, a few brews, ranging from ales to beers, are opened and a lot of questions are fired towards Firesuite. Wait, who are they? Well, they are Christopher Anderson (guitars, voice), Sarah Griffiths (guitar, voice), Chris Minor (bass, keyboards) and Richard Storer (drums). Christopher’s brother is taking photos and video, while a friend of the band, Stu, is also present. Stu plays keyboard during live renditions of ‘Sci-Fi Lullaby’.  Continue reading “Interview – Firesuite”
