Long Time Dead -Mild Peril Zine

Yet another CD that came winging it's way to me from Carl who is also in AFS, The Great St Louis and some other bands i cant remember.

This album isnt half bad really, pretty old school punk, rough and full of attitude but still keeps a gold old dose of melody in there.

It reminded me of what The Clash would sound like if they had only just formed, actually scrap that, it sounds more like how Red Flag 77 sound now.

This really benifits from top notch recording and production.

BULLET KINGS-BRAND NEW DISGRACE(SINGEL-VOLTAGE RECORDS VCD 405)
The titletrack Brand new disgrace is an orgie in streetpunk and with a singer which really takes his voice far and he sings for king and the country and I like it much. It feels really powerful in all the nice and tough backgroundmusic. Saints and sinners is a powerful song too and here we have some background voclas which raises that song even more. Check it out for god´s sake...14/10-2010

Image

BULLET KINGS-LONG TIME DEAD(SINGEL-VOLTAGE RECORDS VCD 407)
The yellow vinyl gives the record a fine style and the music is a nice experience because also on this record so is it powerful punk which is the thing for the group and with a singer which really is a man for his voice. The B-side Talk is cheap is a more lightweight song where I somewhere think of Charlie Harper...I don´t know why but it´s a really good song anyway. 14/10-2010

Rebels Without Reason / Long Time dead - album reviews

Andy, Wilf & Carl, three chuncky good-looking charlies well over a sensible age, dish out some rough'n'ready Brit street punk with cheese-grater vocals, which slots in nicely into the "ive had a hard fukkin time" strkes. Released in 2007, Rebels without Reason" perhaps has the edge over this years "Long Time Dead" album which includes a hidden track and some Charlie Harper involvment . Music for angry youths (and rapidly ageing old punks)

The Bullet Kings - Live in Wakefield / Voltage Records - Casket Music

Image

The Bullet Kings are a trio from the Manchester area of England who specialise in solid, no thrills punk rock. Musically they are reminiscent of some of the UK82 type bands but have more in common with the venerable Charlie Harper and the UK Subs, a band to which they have strong links.

This live DVD was recorded in front of a sparse crowd in Wakefield and the lack of numbers does not diminish the effort the band put into their performance and how this comes across. This is not a one camera effort with poor sound, as there are a number of views on offer and a very strong guitar sound comes across that highlights the talents of Carl Arnfield who can also be found plying his trade in other bands such as The Great St Louis and the Arthritic Foot Soldiers.

Although, short, featuring only eight live tracks, you get some of the Bullet Kings’ stronger songs including a handful off the recent “Long Time Dead” album. Vocally, Wilf has quite a gruff, throaty delivery although he does he level best to hold onto the tunes within the songs. With Andy battering the hell out of his drums it is left to the aforementioned Carl to show what he can do with six strings. It is without doubt, this guitar work that gives this band the little bit extra, with leads well placed throughout the songs and a really crunching sound.

Perhaps the strongest track is “Brand New Disgrace” which sees the bands peaking in the live situation although this is pushed quite closely by “My Country” which is a slower song, trying to encapsulate the current state of the UK and many other countries.

Somehow this DVD reminds me of the live video that Husker Du released of their first UK show which was filmed for a regional television station – poor turnout, good sound and showing how a band can show their mettle when almost just playing for themselves.

In addition to the live tracks, the DVD also features three videos for songs “Godforsaken Town”, “My Country” and the World Cup song “Raise Your Glass For England”. The first two are done in black and white which adds to the atmosphere and what the songs are trying to convey. The last one was obviously supposed to assist England win the World Cup this year – it didn’t help much! I do love the shots of the bands playing their instruments in the snow with Andy using a snow shovel as a guitar though – very amusing.

As a limited release, this is a quality product which is only available direct from the band

I think it's the vocals that give it an edge, raw and edgey rather than run of the mill.

The Bullet Kings - Live In Wakefield DVD (Voltage)
I can't stress how good this band really are, stopped in an old school punk feel with an updated sound. The guitars are loud and full of more power than the Scotty dude could ever give to Captain Kirk. Backed some damn fast and impressive drumming, The Bullet Kings are a band to be reckoned with. The songs seem to have a social awareness and offer catchy choruses that you can't help instantly remembering + singing along with. The vocals are brash and snotty just as you'd expect from an older school punk rock band. Really impressed by the sound these fellas can pump out live, the set is fucking tight! Just a shame it doesn't seem like the biggest crowd there, or at least not the noisiest, which sucks. And there's a bonus of three videos. "Godforsaken Town" is a great tune and I love the black and white video. This is one sweet live DVD and The Bullet Kings are a fucking great band!
