yes im in another band.....

Churchill were before The Bullet Kings, and ground to a halt after the singer walked out on us 5 mins before a gig, so for the last few years this album (Hated & Proud) has sat around unfinished.

Then Andy K from D-Mob steps up to help out on vocals...

we should have the album finished late spring....

Is that why you can only see the label and not the actual record in that pic? Cos it's invisible?

DEMOB/CHURCHILL - SPLIT SINGLE

I like two track singles like this because they are quick and easy to review and it looks as though I am keeping extremely busy when I post on Myspace that I have done yet another CD review. Compare this to those draining 30+ track compilations and I get almost sexually aroused when they pop through the letterbox - pathetic I know but my willy has a mind of its own unlike a lot of punks these days. Anyway this is two different bands but both have the same frontman - top bloke Andy K. How does he fair here - darn bloody well to be honest.

We kick off with the squeaky phone tones of a young lassie who exclaims 'Once Punk Always Punk' before being banged out of the way with a slap of drums and a rumble of bass fire. The song builds in strength and the clear vocals cruise in alongside some nifty guitar work. A defiant theme runs throughout and this is a song that should bring together the different sub punk divisions and have all and sundry joining in with the chorus. A mean rumble cut takes us into a nice and simple solo before the song recaptures the formula and heads towards the finish where we are told, in no uncertain terms by that telephonic imp to 'Shut The Fuck Up'. Happy as Larry - yeah!

Churchill are a band I used to manage and who were rough, ready and sorely under-rated. Moronic rumours with no foundation made things difficult so the band took a break and I got on with other things. Now the band is back and imagine my surprise when I heard this new, polished output that barely had any resemblance to what I was happy to peddle. First impressions were of a wishy-washy lightweight noise that just didn't have enough clout. Determined not to be ruled by initial ideas I have listened on and I must admit I don't know what the fuck I was thinking. The revamp is remarkable and the song here 'This One's For The Skins' is a crackin' little track that easily holds it's own with Demob's offering and makes a new statement that I hope people will take heed of. Churchill have a heavy arsenal of quality tunes and with an album ready to be released I suspect the strides they make this time will be a lot bigger and further afield. Having Andy K at the helm will no doubt help as he does get about a bit this bugger and seems to have a nice contact list. The band should be judged on their musical outpouring though and here they come up with freshly pressed harry's and polished ox-bloods. The melody is sublime, the vocals again lucid and the noise effective. The skins will indeed love this and so will the rest (if they have any sense) and the new crisp sound will reap benefits for those on the cusp of the punk precipice.

So two tracks due to be released on vinyl (clear methinks) and one for the avid collector to savour. One band comes to an end and the other hopes to make a fresh start - such is the changing scene and the way things go. I hope Demob go down in the punk rock halls of fame (or infamy) and get the credit they deserve and I equally hope Churchill make people sit up and admire a very solid band (in more ways than one)!

You get dark coloured mint confections that are 7" across up that way? Blimey!

Hope the single comes with an anti-static liner too.

Two bands, one front man, one 7" on clear vinyl. Veteran punk Andy K provides vocals on both of these bands. Demob have been around since the 70's and stay true to the title of their song. "Once Punk" has that classic '77 sound with the drum intro, before the bass kicks in followed by the gutiars and Andy's anti-authority lyrics. It's a decent tune, nothing spcial thought.

On the other side "Churchill", hailing from Bolton, "This One 4 The Skins" is actually a a bit simiular to the Demob track but it's got a bit more punch and the chorus is top, sure to please every skin in the land.

Churchill / Demob – Split 7” (Voltage)

A split vinyl, not sure which is the A side and which is the AA one, so will just have a listen to it alphabetically. So, Churchill give us a track called “One 4 The Skins”, a very typical street oi punk tune like the title suggests, a decent track. Demob’s track is called “Once Punk Always Punk” and is very much along the same lines, in fact I can’t really tell a difference between the two bands, would not be surprised if they were the same band. But this is a good little single, it’s on lovely clear vinyl and well worth picking up.
