When it comes to the “old school sound” I tend to get a little tingle on my fingertips as I reminisce about all the years I’ve been listening to music and basking in all the different genres in our household that had the full collection of Elvis Presley, The Beach Boys, Michael Jackson, Meat Loaf, British new wave 80’s pop, Alice Cooper, Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe….. I mean, the list goes on.
As I look back over those many years, especially since my teens and early adulthood, I was more into the extreme kind of metal music, but since those years I have matured and grown enough to appreciate and respect all aspects of music and the genres that it applies to, expanding my listening range to gain much more of an understanding with the creativity that many bands and artists present to us with every single release that is produced.
Scottish label Zap Records have been a huge supporter of the old school punk sound for quite some time, with artists and likewise bands like Wiley Willis and 2Minute Minor, with their straight-edge hardcore, punk, and oi, a creative cesspool that brings absolute joy to the punk legions of yesteryear. The band from Chicago are hitting the studio again on the first weekend of March, recording the follow -up to their 2018 mini album Blood On Our Front Stoop with an EP entitled Snake That Ate Its Own Tail due out later this summer, again on a 7″ vinyl format.
