I returned to the UK towards the end of last year after spending years in Asia where there was very little punk scene. To make up for the lack of gigs I made it my mission to attend as many as possible this year; and what a bloody years its been. Some excellent shows took place in the diy scene here and there where some great releases. Here are some of my favourites in no particular order. Check them out below.

Bratakus are one of my new favourite bands at the moment, so what a treat to find they released an EP on Halloween! “Ghouls To The Front” contains two new songs, one of which pays tribute to their favourite horror movie (and one of mine) Evil Dead. Listen to it below.
The band released “Target Grrrl” in August which is one of the best albums of the year so far in my opinion. So check them out! You can also find a list of November gigs below!

Kicking the night off with a belter of a record! Bratakus are a two piece Scottish punk act that are well worth your attention! The two sisters play straight up bratty punk rock that’s full of attitude. I must say it’s one of the best records I’ve heard in the last couple of months and I can’t wait to catch them playing in Sheffield next month. I’ve heard they do a great cover of “Animals and Two Veg” by crust legends Cress as well. So take some time out of your day and give “Target Grrrl” a listen below. Underneath you can also find a list of upcoming gigs.

Good Throb are bloody brilliant. I only came across them earlier this year and was gutted to find they were not really active anymore due to various members moving abroad. One of the first songs I came across was “The Queen Sucks Nazi Cock” and I crossed my fingers and hoped the band would be as good as the name of that song! Luckily they were! They play pissed off punk but every now and then you will find yourself chuckling to some of the lyrics. I find them totally refreshing and unique.
Well the band are playing a one off show in London at the Static Shock Weekend on November 11th. The line up is excellent including another favourite of mine, Limp Wrist, who are also there for a one off.
If you have never heard of them before then you can check out “Fuck Off” which was released in 2014 below.

If you live in Germany or Belgium then you are in for a treat my friends! One of the UK’s finest bands, Natterers, have announced some shows for this November, kicking off in Antwerp on the 8th. You can check out the list of dates below.
Natterers released “Toxic Care” this June and it is, in my opinion, one of the best releases of the year so far. If you haven’t listened to it yet then hurry up and give it a listen here.

Feminist punk band Cheap Perfume have released a video for their single “It’s OK (To Punch Nazis)”, check it out below. The band created the song in response to debates on whether it was justified for people to use violence in certain situations; an argument that arose after a number of clashes took place this year between anti-fascists and the alt-right.
Band member No had this to say:
“After Richard Spencer got punched, the video was being gleefully shared on the Internet. Some people that we know would say, ‘Well, I’m not a fan of Richard Spencer, but it’s not okay to punch anyone.’ There were a few people saying it was never right. I just couldn’t believe that people were saying that, after I’d heard Richard Spencer speaking on several shows and newscasts and NPR, and he’s clearly espousing the exact views as the Nazis did. We were really confused that certain people we know seemed really sorry that Richard Spencer got punched in the face. As someone who has studied nonviolence and used to really push that home in the yoga classes that I teach, I really started thinking that there is a gray area, and there are exceptions, and one exception is Nazis.”
Proceeds from the single are being donated to The Heather Heyer Foundation. The foundation was set up in honor of the activist who lost her life after being hit by a car at an anti-fascist rally in Charlottesville earlier this year.

Natterers is one of the band names on everyone’s lips here in the UK diy scene at the moment; and with good reason. Hailing from Yorkshire, these guys have been touring constantly and have been attracting quite a lot of attention since the release of their 4 track demo last year.
I was lucky enough to see them for the first time earlier this year at an all dayer with Discharge and they stuck in my mind as one of the best performances of the day; not only because of their music but also their stage presence. Emma, their powerful vocalist, pointed out she was the only female out of all the bands playing that day and called out for more women to get involved in the punk scene. Something I think we can all get behind.
“Toxic Care” was released on June 23rd via Boss Tuneage Records & Serial Bowl Records. It consists of 6 raw and catchy songs that prove again why Natterers are one of the most exciting up and coming bands in the UK. Check it out below.

Head here to give ‘Good For Nothing’ a spin.
“Deathcap” is taken from the band’s upcoming album “Seafoam,” which is set to be released on June 9 on Wiretap Records in the US, and Big Scary Monsters in the UK and for the rest of the world.
