When punk rock erupted in Washington DC, it was a mighty convergence of powerful music, friendships, and clear minds.
This film is the first to explore the incredible challenges that this subculture faced when it took root in the Nation’s Capital in the late 1970’s.
Punk the Capital situates DC punk within the larger narratives of rock n' roll, working as a powerful multi-layered story for both fans and non-fans of punk rock.
Featuring musicians such as Bad Brains, Henry Rollins, and Ian MacKaye, this film dives deep into the ideas and sounds from this transformative music scene which continues to influence culturally and politically around the world.

YES guitarist Steve Howe has announced he is to release the seventh edition of his Homebrew album series on 30th July via HoweSound. Homebrew 7 marks the 25th anniversary of the guitar legend’s first album in his Homebrew collection.
The Homebrew series typically features recordings from Steve Howe’s home archive of demos and tracks, originally recorded for one of his many solo or group projects with YES, ASIA, ABWH or GTR. Homebrew 7 differs slightly as none of the tracks have previously been released in any form and there are no plans for any to be rerecorded in the future.
“Many are things I’ve enjoyed saving until the right moment,” says Howe, “and the Homebrew series allows this. Some tracks have matured with my nurturing but others have been recently rediscovered.”This collection includes tracks from the late seventies through to 2016 in Howe’s extensive range of playing styles. Each of the 21 tracks is dated and accompanied by Howe’s background notes and details on instrumentation. Most of the tracks are Howe’s solo recordings with occasional contributions from Dylan Howe and Virgil Howe on drums with Phil Spalding on bass guitar (Half Way).

2021 is a landmark of a kind for New Heavy Sounds, as it is 10 years since the label first started back in 2011. In order to mark their 10th year, New Heavy Sounds will be releasing a series of 10th anniversary CD EP’s in very, very limited editions.
These E.P’s will contain new or exclusive tracks from their roster and beyond and will be available by mail order only.
The first of these limited editions features Blackburn stoner blues rockers Sky Valley Mistress. Before lockdown hit in 2020 the band recorded an acoustic set and these songs make up this anniversary release.
The set contains 4 songs from their debut album. ‘You Got Nothing’ ‘Skull and Pistons’ ‘It Won’t Stop’ and ‘She Is So’.
This is SVM in intimate mode, just keyboards, percussion, guitar and the sonorous vocals of Kayley Davies. The stripped-down mode really allows her to shine and more than anything showcases what a brilliant expressive voice she has.
Recorded in their studio and specially re-mastered for this release, New Heavy Sounds hope you’ll be as captivated as they were when they heard them.
The Sky Valley Mistress acoustic sessions E.P. is set to be released on March 26th.

The Moons return with their final single "The Lone Wolf' a mellow yet contagious number soaked heavily in melody and recorded in studio 2 Abbey Road London. The single is the third release from the successful Pocket Melodies album.
The Lone Wolf is an outcast. A lost soul stuck inside the narrow walls of his mind and possibly by choice. He built this world to save himself but dreams what it would be like to fit in. To be accepted. On the flip is a charming piano version of the working class love song An Ordinary Romance.
The song features at the end of the Pocket Melodies documentary ‘Inside The Melodies’ and was a spontaneous live recording by Andy Crofts while sat in Black Barn Studios waiting for people to arrive for a session.
A masterclass from start to finish" - Clash Magazine 8/10
"A genuine talent coming of age" - Mojo Magazine 4/5
"The Moons new album sees them perfecting their way with a perfect pop song" - Shindig Magazine

Through these strange and uncertain times it is sometimes a little hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel but this is where The Moons have stepped in. This long player is an album full of colour and raw songwriting recorded live in the legendary Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios. With cinematic string arrangements and masterclass songwriting from the pen of singer/songwriter Andy Crofts this album will be your happy escape.
“Most of this album had been unintentionally sat in my pocket for quite some time. Songs that I had written and forgotten about or had just lost their way and left unfinished. So that is why I wanted the album to simply be named Pocket Melodies. I had this inner feeling to pull them all together and it turned out my favourite Moons record.” Andy Crofts
Pocket Melodies takes you on a journey of glorious melodies leading you through love, romance, nostalgia, regret and unity.
“I wanted to be true to myself with this record. My best strength is writing melodic pop songs so I just let it all flow as I wanted this album to be soaked in colour and completely natural. There’s no pretence, it’s just straight up pop songs. I have always worn my heart on my sleeve when it comes to my feelings and I think you can hear this in the lyrics this time.” Andy Crofts
The album features singles Riding Man and Today which received high praise and championed on BBC London and Radio X and a collaboration with Paul Weller on the song Tunnel Of Time."I wrote all of the songs on the album except Tunnel Of Time which is a collaboration between myself and Paul Weller. He once approached me with a little idea and we slowly worked at it in dressing rooms etc until I took it away and put it all together. Its a nice little song and im glad it found a home with The Moons." Andy Crofts

“One Alone,” the debut solo LP from Alice In Chains lead singer/guitarist, William DuVall, is a smoldering all-acoustic affair, a late-night meditation on heartbreak, triumph, and hard-won lessons. This recording is as intimate as it gets, like a private living room concert. It’s the perfect contrast to Alice In Chains’s recent UK arena tour in May of this year.
“After three albums and numerous world tours with Alice In Chains, as well as creating the Giraffe Tongue Orchestra album (w/ Brent Hinds of Mastodon and Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan), and, of course, my catalog of albums and tours with Comes With The Fall, I felt the need to peel everything back to the bare bones. This album is strictly one voice, one guitar. It reveals the very core of who I am as a singer, guitarist, and songwriter.” - William DuVall

Housed in a gatefold sleeve designed by Steve Lippert, mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy. Everything else was done by Sleaford Mods.
From Original Press Release 2015 “Key Markets was a large supermarket bang in the centre of Grantham from the early 1970's up until around 1980,” explains Jason Williamson.
“My mum would take me there and I'd always have a large coke in a plastic orange cup surrounded by varnished wood trimmings and big lamp shades with flowers on them. Beige bricks with bright yellow points of sale and large black foam letters surrounded you and this is why we called the album 'Key Markets'.
It's the continuation of the day to day and how we see it, the un-incredible landscape.”
“The album was recorded in various periods between summer 2014 through to October of that year. We worked fast as we normally do, the method was the same as the other albums and like the other two, the sound has naturally moved itself along.
'Key Markets' is in places quite abstract but it still deals heavily with the disorientation of modern existence. It still touches on character assassination, the delusion of grandeur and the pointlessness of government politics. It's a classic. Fuck em.
