Seeing Your Scene’s releases of the year!

Here we go! It’s our list of our favourite UK (arguably) DIY releases to come out this year, including records, EPs and splits! It’s been a great year, and we missed a ton of amazing releases out, but this is what we got when we did an in-house poll! 10. Petrol Girls – Petrol Girls EP […]

Fishlock Fridays #3 – A year in gigs

The year is at the end, so naturally always a time to reflect on the previous 12 months, and 2014’s not been too bad, outside mundane “real life” at least. I’ve somehow managed to put on 14 gigs mostly by myself, and I thought maybe this deserves a proper reflection, rather than what Facebook wants […]

What’s Wrong With the Kids? – Volume 1

In this exact moment, the biggest single regret of my life is not the stack of wasted life opportunities or the multiple god shit awful choices I’ve made, but the fact that I didn’t manage to dive off the main stage at the Reading Festival. This is a momentary thing, of course, and the reasons […]

The Story of a Punk Rock Band: Comrades (NYC)

PART 1 BY THE SNIKT It all started with a kid who liked punk music. Then he wanted to make his own with his friends. I guess that’s the story behind a lot of bands, just some friends getting together. I guess though as the world changed and got darker this was just a source […]

A guide to Trinidad and Tobago

I’d like to say there’s a punk scene in Trinidad and Tobago. There isn’t.  Is there even a rock scene? Probably not. Why? To me, a scene requires a foundation. Pillars of support so that it’ll develop legs and run on its own. Caribbean-wise, I’ve heard and reviewed bands that come too few and far […]

A guide to Philadelphia

Over the past few years, Philadelphia has gained a reputation as a punk rock mecca— and with good reason. Every year, great bands crop up in the city faster than shitty bands get added to the Warped Tour and it seems like more and more people across the country have started to pay attention to […]
