Sorry about the radio silence, as Laila explains in this video, we’ve had a couple of quiet weeks Boom-wise. However, now we’re back in the studio mixing the record with Adam Noble Producer, who knows his compression from his EQ.
In order to beg your forgiveness, I’ve included a bumper listen of new track ‘L.O.V.E’. It’s the most Disco that Sonic Boom Six have ever dared to tread! This is going to whet your appetite for the album, no doubt about it.
TUESDAY TUNAGE. ‘Getting Old’ by Perkie. Every Tuesday I’ll be posting a Soundcloud track from an emerging artist we like. Today it’s Perkie, who many of you guys may know from her background in the UK punk scene. On ‘Getting Old’, Perkie sets her stall somewhere between the honest songwriting and gentle, British vocals of Kate Nash, and the homebrew reggae goodness of Chris Murray. Her album, Time Machine, is available now! Please listen, like and SHARE! #tuesdaytunage
The Hell’s recent cover of the Nickelback hit ‘How You Remind Me’ has divided opinion across the globe. We’re massive fans of The Hell for their fun, rocking live show and their use of satire to prick the bubble of violence and misogyny in a jockish hardcore scene that sometimes takes itself far too seriously. But we understand that others feel otherwise about the clown princes of beatdown. What do you reckon?

I was criticised, perhaps fairly, last week for sharing too much fun, frothy stuff on here and not enough hard-hitting political content. Well, be careful what you wish for, because here’s a blog I wrote in reaction to The Sun effectively pointing their finger at every Muslim in Britain and demanding ‘whose side are you on’? Please remember to comment and share and keep discussion respectful. http://barneyboom.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/the-sun-urges-brits-of-all-faiths-that.html
