Wake The F~*k Up!

Review By Bobby Green It’s hard to describe just how fantastic Touts are right now. Last year they kicked down the doors they were hiding behind with their debut Single ‘Sold Out’ and quite frankly blew everyone away with their live performances and ability to transfer that energy to the recording studio. I remember when the 7inch single was king. We used to put the needle on, wait for the crackle and then be launched into orbit with the rocket fuel that came from that magical piece of black spinning plastic. It’s been a while since I felt like...

Still In Love With A Call Girl

Review by Bobby Green. I have to admit to not expecting something so beautiful from Dublin’s Call Girl for their second offering. Council Estate was a stomping Debut that had great hooks and a punch like Conor McGregor, you may not like the style but you can’t ignore the quality.
