Hash Redactor are an indie rock&punk band comprised from Alex McIntyre of Ex-Cult, Meredith Lones and Charlotte Watson from Nots and George Williford who has played in a number of Memphis bands. Drecksound is their debut full-length LP. Expect some energised, avant guitar interplay backed-up by a solid rhythm section.
The eight-year wait for London post/punk band Hygiene to follow up their memorable debut album 'Public Sector' is at an end, with their sophomore effort titled 'Private Sector' (naturally!). Where its predecessor was nostalgic, this new effort rages at modern-day Britain in its current phase of capitalistic twilight.

The pieces we've come to expect are all here> Jasmine Watson's invectives against capitalism, binaries, police< Ricky Martyr's inimitable and always surprising stop/start guitar< horns of all stripes breaking through the noise *Misha Poleschuck on tenor sax, clarinet(< a nimble and powerful jazz/influenced rhythm section *Laura DeVeber on bass, Sean Nieves on drums(.Alternative&Jazz Punk&No Wave
