The Warrington Ska Punk Podcast #7

That’s right, you heard it here first, it’s ANOTHER WARRINGTON SKA PUNK PODCAST!! We got Dave Emmerson of Visions Press back on the show. Mostly because we couldn’t get anyone better…

We discuss Wizards, Dave’s Christmas presents, the barely-even-a-genre that is “Noise”, and about five minutes of both of us going “URRRRGGGGHH”. Plus Dave’s zine, that was basically my idea.

EP Reviews

Chinchilla Death Cult – Initiation Rites EP

The Slackers, but a little hungier? Angrier? And... from Leeds.

Initiation Rites, immediately, the moment it opens with “No Conspiracy“, is very, very Slackers. I think this is mostly due to Tim’s vocals having a Vic-Ruggerio-like quality, although there’s definitely a little bit more punch to the underbelly in the rest of the band’s attack.

The Ballad of Jenny Horne” makes me think of a world where Murder By Death carried on with their misery-laced thematic-story telling but also listened to far too much World Inferno Friendship Society. The EP ebbs and flows, with some very catchy musicality. All whilst still telling a story? Fantastic.
