So to mark this occasion we thought it would be a cool idea to ask Jeff Williams bassist in Onslaught to put together his very own Midnite Mixtape Massacre centred around what he listens to whilst on the road. Jeff being Jeff this feature comes with a special twist, as in he’s given a whole iPod’s worth of stuff to get through rather than just a C90. Hit the link to find out more.

BXthmbFresh from a session at the world-famous Daptone Studios in Brooklyn recording their first new material since 2012’s ‘Meat And Bone’ album, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion once again set sail for Europe, bringing with them a curse of ancient rhythm & blues to a generation who perhaps didn’t fully realise the NYC trio had been doing this thing long since before The White Stripes and their ilk jumped on their coat tails and became millionaires in the process. Popping along to our fave local venue (that’s also a boat) Uber Rock’s Johnny H was “V” excited about this one. So click the link and join in the fun.
