Miscalculations

 Mastering Miscalculations second LP “A View For Glass Eyes”.

“Featuring Members of Gaggers, Ladykillers and Disco Lepers, this band from London is the perfect combination of ’77 UK Punk and the dark guitar/synthesizer Post Punk of nowadays. It’s like singer Marco says: “it’s a blend of post punk a la Wire, Joy Division mixed with some electro in the vein of the Units, Screamers, Vicious Visions and a dose of Scandinavian / Euro punk like Masshysteri, Tristess, Invasionen etc.””

“Take the epic heaviness of FROM ASHES RISE, dilute it to a more punk rock formula, throw in the density of the WIPERS and add some early- ‘80s LA hardcore melody, and that’s the winning concoction of the RED DONS..,” – Maximum Rocknroll #329

Mastering Miscalculations‘ LP.

“Miscalculations were formed in a dark, asbestos-lined basement in Harlow and a towering loft overlooking the concrete, steel and flesh of North London. Absorbing their environment, watching analysing and calculating. Miscalculating.

Featuring members of The Gaggers, Ladykillers and Shanghai Wires, Miscalculations capture the cynicism, obscurity and perplexity of their surroundings and filter it down to the purest punk form. Agitated yet melodic, Miscalculations are sharp as a surgeon’s blade.
They take cues from early punk rock, electro punk and contemporary punk mixing the sounds of The Units, Screamers, Warsaw, The Vicious, Masshysteri, Tristess and Vicious Visions with the depth and abstruseness of a Francis Bacon painting. Accurately miscalculated.”

Gig #42: RED DONS / METHODIST CENTRE / GOOD THROB / THE SMEAR

Facebook event click here

STATIC SHOCK GIG VOL #42

RED DONS
From Portland, USA and with releases on Deranged, Dirtnap and Taken By Surprise records. Red Dons will be playing three UK shows when in town to record their next record and this is the only one south of Leeds. Featuring members of The Observers, Clorox Girls and Thee Spivs among others.

METHODIST CENTRE
Queer Oi/Street punk from London with two drummers, this is going to be one of their last ever shows. Don’t miss out.

GOOD THROB
“Good Throb’s initial public offering draws from all of their previous bands’ work (the Sceptres, the Shitty Limits, Tortura et al.) in the shadows of the Nixe’s Utreg punk, with a hint of “Swiss Punk Now”, a bit of the Australian X’s burliness, but any desire for comparison is overwhelmed by a certain wall of sound and ferocity – on every instrument – that breeds a perfectly nasty sense of empathy. Empathy for a visceral breeze, for the methodical assassination of tedium, for the distilled detestation of our rosy society, and for Tesco anthems. Raw depictions of a mundane universe. (NG – Terminal Boredom)

THE SMEAR
First show from this new local band, featuring members of Tremors, Wake Up Dead and Vexed playing gloomy post punk along the lines of The Wipers.

Wednesday 27th March

8:00PM – £6 entry.

The Shacklewell Arms
71 Shacklewell Lane, Dalston, London, E8 2EB

Mixed and Mastered here, Red Dons new Auslander 7″ reviewed by I Buy Way too Many Records.

“Dirtnap (2012)
The fine folks over at Dirtnap sure do have some good taste in music. It seems like whenever I find a band that I really like, they’re now putting out a record on Dirtnap too. Good work. Red Dons are a band I’ve been listening to since their last album, Fake Meets Failure and I’ve been mightily impressed.

This 7″ is another example of the bands downstroke heavy Wipers/Hot Snakes style of punk rock and roll. I would say that this 7″ might be a bit poppier than some of the bands prior work, but in this case, that’s great news. This 7″ may be the best thing the band has released to date and considering the strength of their back catalog, that’s no small feat. Hopefully the band will be getting a new full length together soon as this 7″ has really made me excited to see where the band goes next.”
