Around The World In 80 Bands: Day 3: Sweden: Refused

Day 3: Sweden: Refused

Day 3 arrive in Sweden, may as catch a Refused reunion, for anyone who doesn't know who Refused are, shame on you. Their album 'The Shape Of Punk To Come' is a masterpiece, chock full of melody and agression and pretty much every genre you can think of.

Every 20 countries i'll post a playlist, maybe even a cheaky link to a comp who knows.

Around The World In 80 Bands: Day 2: Norway: Turbonegro

Day 2: Norway: Turbonegro

Day 2 in Norway, home to some cool bands, the best of which surely has to be Turbonegro, most recommend albums would be easily 'Apocalypse Dudes' and 'Ass Cobra' however pretty much everythign is worth checking out.

They've recently returned with a new singer 'Tony Sylvester' and the 'Sexual Harassment' album which is actually pretty good

Around The World In 80 Bands: Day 1: United Kingdom: The Cribs

What better way to waste time than spend a metaphorical 80 day trip around the world seeing a band in a different country on the way, but that’s insane isn’t it, almost impossible to be that mentalish to even try such a feat. Nah it’ll be fun, let’s try it anyway!
Day 1: United Kingdom: The Cribs

So Day 1, before we jet set off from this merry old isle, we’ll have to catch a quintessential English band, by quintessential I mean a band from Oop North where I live, so what better band to catch than The Cribs. Not only are they one of the most awesome live bands ever, every song they do it crammed full of wit and melody. This literal band of brothers have been going for 10 years now releasing 5 amazing albums, 2 of which made it into my own 1001 albums you must hear before you die. Cos I’m sad I’ll even make up a setlist for this made up gig:

Our Bovine Public / You Were Always the One / Cheat On Me / I'm a Realist / Chi-Town / Hey Scenesters! / Things Aren't Gonna Change / Martell / I've Tried Everything / Men's Needs / Another Number / Come On, Be A No-One / You're Gonna Lose Us / Mirror Kissers / Don't You Wanna Be Relevant? / Moving Pictures / It Was Only Love / We Share The Same Skies / Baby Don't Sweat / The Wrong Way to Be

And there’s still tons of other songs they should play, realistically any Cribs gig should be at least 30 songs long.

See you tomorrow in Norway

Recommendation Of The Week: Parkway Drive

You can now pre-order the new Parkway Drive album 'Atlas' over at:

If you love a bit of brutal metalcore then you already know how insanely good this band is, if not pick up 'Killing With A Smile', then 'Deep Blue' and if you must 'Horizons' (no where near as good as the other two)

Think i'm gonna have to go for a CD/DVD/T-Shirt bundle, looks too good to pass up, i've now listened to the new single 'Dark Days' this album is highly likely to be immense!!
