Topic: 1990s to present day, melodic punk from thee U.K.

i can't find a thread for this. i don't even know what to call the thread really. shit like hooton 3 car, broccoli, blocko etc... rocking, driving stuff with a melancholy emo air around it. there was a lot of it about, and always seems to be one or two new bands doing the rounds.

anyway, here's a new band doing this:

it is folk from driveway speeding, who were quite good.

post vids of the classics or links to the new jacks, whatever you fancy.

I'm a Zapiain man through and through... An old one on the link, the new album is very very good.

Re: 1990s to present day, melodic punk from thee U.K.

aye, good album there!

Home is such a great autumn album.

Re: 1990s to present day, melodic punk from thee U.K.

My favourite kind of punk rock smile

More power to me.

Re: 1990s to present day, melodic punk from thee U.K.

And I also love the Japanese bands aping that sound. I wish I could find a  Youtube video of Pear Of The West's cover of Leatherface's "Don't Work."

More power to me.

I like music.

This thread totally got me on a punk rock kick (which is quite nice after mostly listening to "Reign In Blood" for most of the summer) and I guess I can share the only two complete songs the band I played guitar for when I was in the UK ever recorded before I moved back to France. They haven't really been shared or anything but I don't think they sound bad at all. I guess we sounded like a mix of H3C and North Lincoln or something like that: http://www.mediafire.com/?50g5cc7bcjlhbvk

This has inspired me to finally transfer my early 90's punk/pop band 'The Limeys' to something uploadable. It was two english fellas and two americans who were over here for a year. We did a 5 song demo, I think one other person heard it. It was a lot of fun and my friend andrew (american) actually took the concept of 'Cannibal Holocaust' and turned it into an anthemic love song, I miss his gift for that kind of brilliance.

This is my favourite all but written out of history music (from here at least). There used to be a store here that had seemingly every Crackle/Rugger Bugger/Snuffy Smile record. Gained through some ill-advise distribution deal, they sat on the shelves untouched for years until the store closed and i picked up everything for far too cheap. I had no idea what i was getting into but oh my the first time i heard Brocolli's Television (no youtube unfortunately).

Also, on this note, The 255's album is totally rocking and I like it loads.

Yup, it was Tom on drums, Jamie on bass/vocals (his proper first attempts at doing this, haha) and me on guitar/backing vocals.

Also, thanks for the nice comment, Family Circus.

Re: 1990s to present day, melodic punk from thee U.K.

And the 255s album is AMAZING but I'm not sure it really fits in this thread?

And I really want to hear your old band, Chris Cooter.

Yeah, you're probably right.

Cheers Remi, I'm working on it, I got a stack of DATs from old bands, some good some bad...

Just a little aside, when we recorded this, it was one of those £100 all in, overnight sessions in a studio in north london. We emerged groggy and tired, to all wait for a night bus to take us home at about 5.30 in the morning, nothing was open, and it was strangely quiet for london at night aswell. Looking around, Ian our drummer turned to me and asked, 'Have you noticed the name of the street opposite?'... I remember looking over and seeing the name 'Cranley Gardens'... Ian explained why it was significant, and believe me, that bus couldn't come quick enough. (google the address if you don't allready know)

This seems as good a place as any to re-plug the Bombed Out Records compilation that's free to download here:

http://bombedout.bandcamp.com/album/a-p … ut-records

We are, quite literally, 1990s to present day melodic punk. For the most part anyway...

Oh, and one of my favourite UK melodic punk albums is the first album by Scouse band Dina. "Electricity Gives Me a Heart Murmur" is required listening! Released by the long defunct Complicity Records.

Re: 1990s to present day, melodic punk from thee U.K.

I remember Dina. Put them on at the tap with Grampus Eight.
