Here's a little treat for all of you Bluetip fans out there. Back in the year 2000 while touring the UK they did a live session for the legendary radio DJ John Peel. They recorded four tracks for the session.
Bluetip - Live Peel Session
Before the madness of Gay For Johnny Depp there was the sublimely good Garrison. I wanted to post up their first Bend Before the Break EP, but alas i have lost it! But even so here is the Be A Criminal album. This was a bit of a departure from the more emo fore said EP with a more poppy/punky feel but with pretty dark undertones. With good use of two singers (who sound pretty similar) then it is an enjoyable listen for sure.
I also found some pretty rare footage of them playing Harlow of the Bend Before The Break EP, so you can enjoy that as well!
Garrison - Be A Criminal
Ok, so i have stolen this from the ever outstanding Circling The Drain Blog but this band was brilliant. Hectic, frantic and straight up fast. There really isn't alot to dislike, if anything about this band. The whole sound is fantastic, raw and fuzzy as hell. Like your tunes fast? Then get some.
This Scares Me 7"
Ahh what a amazing band these guys were. Inventive, chaotic and powerful. Hardcore as it should be. So you are in for a treat as they posted up all the stuff they put out on the blog link below. Can't recommend it highly enough.
