Red Red Krovvy – a trio of some of the country’s fiercest punk-rock pugilists – are gearing up to throw down with the establishment on forthcoming album Managing. Soundtracking a vicious scrap with the ugliest elements of the self-centred elite, the record’s first two available tracks document RRK’s dogged determination to make cracks in the foundations – no matter how much their knuckles bleed.
Punchy and vagarious hard-rock outfit Drunk Mums are building up momentum towards another potent assemblage of hard-bitten noise. The band’s new album Urban Cowboy will be moseying over the horizon as the sun sets on 2018, but the Melbourne-via-Cairns malcontents are kicking the party off early with ‘Roll With The Punches’. The track is a hefty power-pop kicker about getting beaten down by life but never collapsing under the weight of its bullshit, proving beyond all doubt that nothing brightens a mood better than loud music.
