That Fucking Tank

Other than having the best name ever these guys are amazing. Have been around a good few years playing all over the UK. Two guys playing great post rocky tunes, like a slightly more messed up Giraffes? Giraffes! then you can't go wrong.

This post is mainly for their first ever music video that some people did for free for them, and to raise some awareness for their hard work!

So here is the said Video!

Model Radio

I love Model Radio!!!!!! Hailing from the cold UK (hurrah!). I first stumbled across them many many months ago as one of them writes one of the blogs i did a post on a long time ago, but since then i haven't heard much from them. UNTIL NOW! With a few cheeky rough recordings then they are back!

Playing gruff punk, emo(ish), scramz?!? Who cares what it may or may not sound like as it sounds refreshing and well put together. There isn't too many bands doing this stuff well in the UK and it's great to hear some local(ish) lads getting on with it!

Check out there stuff on their Myspace page - or their new Facebook page

They will hopefully will have something out soon and be looking for gigs up and down the UK, so if you can help then get in contact and help them out.

Space Jam

Ok, so i haven't posted on here for ages and after the fall of ZX Tapes then i wasn't sure if to continue this blog but there's so much good stuff out there at the moment!!

First up is a great group of people from the US who put on bands in their house. I thought they are worth a mention as they have only just started up but are already doing a great job. Putting on such bands as Like Nomads, Shrk Wk amongst others. It's always good when people make safe places for touring bands or local bands to play! Here is a short message from their blog:

"booking (theories and practices)
we want to help out as many bands as we can, however we are only doing shows bi-monthly and keeping it to weekends. (except in extreme cases where we are helping out a band on the road that is very special to us)

if you have a show idea or need a show for your tour hit us up at"

Here is the link to their blog which includes pictures, Live recording and videos of the past show they put on - Space Jam Blog
