Rudolf de Borst: Vocals, Bass, Keys, Guitar / Ben Cole: Drums, Percussion, Vocals / Christian Livingstone: Guitars, Keys / Philip Somervell: Guitars, Vocals - Six years hath passed since the last release action from NewZild's most noted crafters of classic rock.
A lengthy period of quiet has been broken, with a stash of fresh riffing & renewed wailing. What change might have come to bear in a half dozen years? Is the DATSUN tribe more world weary, more savvy, more learned...? Is all this on evidence in the capturing of the newly birthed sonic heft and hooks? Have these geezers still got what it takes?
The exhibit - Album No.7 - "Eye to Eye". The stylistic grasp of these 11 tunes wrap the locomotive chug of classic Ian Gillan/Ritchie Blackmore helmed Deep Purple, seasoned nicely with generous servings of Jon Lord keyboard surge, to some updated glam boogie power chord-age, in a manner not dissimilar to the production shenanigans Josh Homme (that QOTSA fella) applies to his various projects.
Has Datsun vocal main man Dolf de Borst always come across like some bastard offspring of Marc Bolan and Alice Cooper? There's some otherworldly fantastical floating folk glam vocal melodies wafting in & out of this selection of tracks. And the Cooper sneer & snarl rears its head, in those tunes of a more heart pounding nature...
The guitar effects and greater keyboard dosage have peppered this clutch of new tunes with more flavours on the menu. Lest us not ferget the master of the cabin fever mongrel pedal electronic mechanics, and frequently featured lead Datsun instrumentalist, Christian Livingstone. It can be imagined the man has been labouring intently, in a wintry lock downed Northern hemisphere, fine tuning freaked fuzz frequencies, sci-fi squeal & spazz, and a host of other soaring dogfighting & dive-bombing tones, fer the instrumental breaks and beds for this album. The inherent rok dramatics and attack are the responsibilities Mr Livingstone bears.
The dynamics and tempo rest in the mitts of them other Datsun three. "Windmill" Phil Somervell gets to bring his rhythmic geetar chops & noted arm flailin', to underscore the light & shade of the riffage, knowing whens to slash or slug, pinch or punch. Ben "Poundin' Soul" Cole machine guns the rolls, and hits the timing twists & turns when required.
Master de Borst locks in his bass walkin', & talkin', stuttering & strutting w/his fellow rhythm men.. An album entrenched in the past, remodelled for the future, one unknown & uncertain more than ever.

This item will ship around mid-May
The life-shattering debut album of UK-based one-man black/death/noise monstrosity Vessel of Iniquity. Fifteen minutes of unfathomable audial terror designed to disintegrate existence directly from within.
Fifteen minutes of inconceivable sonic trauma administered through the unholy abuse of the most blighted blackened death metal and of the most anti-human and liminal strains of noise, drone and power electronics.
A sensorially annihilating and humiliating sonic holocaust that has brought together the diverse but equally decimating aesthetics of extreme acts like Gnaw Their Tongues, Impetuous Ritual, and Teitanblood to conceive the most absurd and completely unthinkable realms of musical devastation.

250 copies on white vinyl and 250 copies on black vinyl.
Vice Squad are a UK Punk Rock band who’s first single releases included the classic ‘Last Rockers’ 7” in 1981. This was followed by the landmark albums ‘No Cause For Concern’ in the same year and ‘Stand Strong Stand Proud’ in 1982 which were both released on EMI.
Since then Vice Squad have delivered short sharp songs with incisive political lyrics and a dash of humour spat out over a thunderous rhythm and machine gun Rock ’n’ Roll guitars. Their latest releases are the EPs 'Born In A War' and 'Ignored To Death V2' taken from the forthcoming album ‘Battle of Britain’ set for release on their own Last Rockers label in May 2020.
The band have become 100% DIY since forming Last Rockers Records in 2009. In keeping with the DIY ethic the previous albums were recorded in the band’s own ‘Sci Fidelity’ studio South London and the new album ‘Battle of Britain’ continues this with the band maintaining full artistic control with the benefit of global distribution via Cargo. Their last album ‘ Cardboard Country’ was launched on the back of a very successful Pledge campaign raising funds for the Shelter homeless charity in line with the album title which was inspired by 'Cardboard City', the name given to the settlement of homeless people living in cardboard boxes near London's Waterloo station. Vice Squad is fronted by raucous voiced singer/guitarist Beki Bondage who was famed for being a teenage champion of Animal rights long before the current popularity of veganism.
Vice squad’s song ’Humane’ was one of the first ever Animal Rights songs. Beki has been featured on the front cover of a number of influential music tabloids such at Melody Maker, NME, Sounds, Record Mirror and Smash Hits. After a hiatus, Beki formed a new version of Vice Squad in 1997 featuring longstanding members of her post VS outfit The Bombshells and they have released several quality albums of powerful punk songs that have been very well received across the world. Vice Squad are considered one of the most influential punk rock bands of all time, paving the way for other female Punk and Rock singers and influencing male performers such as Dave Grohl of Nirvana and Foo Fighters fame who was introduced to Vice Squad via his sister’s record collection.
The first rule of Punk is there are no rules and Vice Squad ably illustrate this with ‘Battle of Britain’. Written, Recorded and Mixed by Beki Bond and Paul Rooney in their home studio. The 13 track album opens with the blistering ‘Ruination’ which cuts through the bullshit of small time promoters and blaggers with consummate swagger and melody while ‘I Dare To Breathe’ is an amphetamine driven anthem to paranoia. ‘When You Were 17’ is almost-tender and tells of first tattoos and under age booze whilst the more chilling ‘Ignored To Death’ rails against isolation and homelessness.
The explosive ‘Born In A War’ rages along like a missile ravaging a third world country and warns ‘See how they treat refugees? That’s how they’ll treat you and me’. Elgar’s ‘Nimrod’ reworked with a pulsating industrial bass segues into title track, 'Battle Of Britain' where Beki's vocals soar like a Spitfire over the crunching de-tuned riff and spit fury over the hypocrisy of putting war memorials before people.
The dystopian ‘Poverty Face’ hits you with the opening line ‘Disinheriting the meek, slyly killing off the weak’ and is counter balanced by the more upbeat ‘How The Other Half Lives’. ‘No Evil’ is a relentless attack on the normalisation of the suffering and death of billions of animals for the meat industry. Battle of Britain's hard hitting collection of anger and riffage pulls no punches in covering topics from austerity and factory farming to the pernicious influence of the Mainstream Media - ‘Led by lies lambs to the slaughter, tax exiles say who you vote for’. Brexit, fake patriotism and cognitive dissonance all get a good kicking too.
The penultimate track, 'You Can’t Fool All Of The People' mixes baritone guitar with violin and Celtic rhythms climaxing in an epic James Bondesque heavy guitar/orchestral blend and breaks every rule in the Punk Police hand book whilst pleading for unity against a rigged political system. ‘Pulling Teeth’ with its ominous riff and hilariously frustrated lyrics ‘Dithering jibbering solid as jam, is it fair I’m both the woman and the man’ closes the album in manic style.

Two PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED songs from the “unfinished” archives of late-‘80s urban guerrilla noise-pop nutters WORLD DOMINATION ENTERPRISES. Go Dominator
Woke Up Just In Time https://soundcloud.com/user-718688070/woke-up-just-in-time/s-VOr0V3gJzgG
VERY limited edition of only 300 copies in see-through orange vinyl. GET THEM WHILE THEY LAST! WDE, noted for their unpredictability and wild guitar sound, featured on the covers of NME, Melody Maker, and The Catalogue (the Indie version of “Music Week”), among others, back in the day.
Their one studio album sustained a top three Indie Chart position, and was the number one new entry on US college radio playlists at the time of its release. Regarded as an influence on DAVID BOWIE’s 1989 project “Tin Machine”, Bowie invited the band to support Tin Machine on their UK tour that year. Later in 1989 “Go Dominator” was recorded and co-produced in London by Bowie’s bandleader and collaborator, Kevin Armstrong.
However, drummer Digger’s new friends at the Jehovah’s witnesses disapproved of some of the lyrics. Digger refused to play on the song, and soon after quit the band. The song was never properly finished or released until now. “GO DOMINATOR” is pinned to a bouncing hip hop beat. The INFECTIOUS chorus, destined to become a chant for the rising throngs of human rights protesters across the globe, is punctuated by the clanky rock ’n’ roll guitar break from HELL. While in between Dobson totally does his nut about some (presumably important) shit. In July, 2020, WDEcorp Records was formed.
WDE’s first 2 tracks from the unfinished archive, ‘Paint the Curtains’ and ‘Trashing’ Around’, were unleashed, and were well received, marking up thousands of digital plays on BandCamp alone, as well as some radio plays. On 14th August, the album ‘Let’s Play Domination’ was re-released across all online digital platforms. A new vinyl remaster release of Let’s Play Domination is scheduled for April, 2021.
“The most exciting show I’ve ever EVER seen” (Simon Reynolds, Melody Maker, 1987).
“This is probably the heaviest album of the 1980s. Nobody has produced a more fucked-up guitar sound than Keith Dobson’s on the ‘Let’s Play Domination’ LP. Pettigrew [Alt-Press editor-in-chief] will concur.
“WDE indulged in a stylistic promiscuity that reanimated funk, dub, hip hop and Birthday Party-esque blues rock.” (Dave Segal - The 99 best albums of the 1980s - Alternative Press anniversary edition, 1995).
“Asbestos Lead Asbestos clang merchants are ‘back’ ‘back’ ‘back’ after a lengthy absence spent at home watching detergent adverts” (Jon Doran, the Quietus, July, 2020).
World Dom continue to enjoy the support of fans in high places. ‘Go Dominator’ will surely see them voicing their approval once again.
