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.

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.

I’m kicking off my first post of the day with some great news! Two superb UK bands are hitting the road together for a short tour.
As I have previously stated, Natterers are one of my favourite bands at the moment; if any of you have been lucky enough to see them live you will understand why. You can’t help being drawn in by their charismatic vocalist as well as their ripping tunes. Their debut demo was excellent and there new release “Toxic Care” is even better with six killer tracks which you can check out here. They are truly one of the most exciting new bands in the scene.
Jaded Eyes have been around for a few years now and have released 2 quality albums so far. They are made up of members from great bands such as Vorhees, The Horror and John Holmes. I thoroughly enjoyed their last release “The Eternal Sea” and can’t wait to get my ears around the new release. They come across as an experienced band that knows how to play great music with good lyrical content. You can listen to a couple of tracks from “The Eternal Sea” here.
Both bands are playing 5 dates together to celebrate the release of their new records with the first show kicking off tomorrow. I’ve been lucky enough to catch both bands playing together twice this year and they never disappoint. You can see the dates below and I highly recommend checking them out if you can; you can’t go wrong with these two!

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.
