Sterile Hermaphrodite

To the department of remarkable band names we can add the trio Sterile Hermaphrodite, hailing from Uddevalla. And the music is also remarkable, which you can hear on their latest EP, “Big Fat Pussy Club”, where they serve their own, nice version of stoner rock mixed with punk vibes and streaks of metal.

Sharon

I’m going to finish this week with some punk, or at least in that direction. It’s Sharon, hailing from Stockholm, that has presented som great intense and raw rock on a three-track EP recently, represented below by the slowest of the three songs, “Graverobbers Blues”.

The band started out about a year ago and was initially named Skulls, a name the members weren’t entirely satisfied with. One of the song, “Sharon”, is about Sharon Tate and during a dinner it was suggested that it should be the band’s name as well, and it was settled.

You can listen to their music on their Soundcloud page and follow the band on their site.

We Do Not Negotiate With Terrorists

The band with the remarkable name We Do Not Negotiate With Terrorists have their base in Göteborg and is fronted by singer and guitarist Ross Downing. Ross comes from England, which also shows in the music, where a distinct Manchester blackness is mixed into a raw indie rock with punk influences and ska vibes.

They have earlier released the EP “Bombing The Underground” and are now working on new material. You can follow the band on Tumblr and on Facebook. The music is also available on Spotify.

Killer Clan of F.U.N. – “The World of Voodoo”

The World of Voodoo

After I wrote about Killer Clan of F.U.N.’s debut album in 2009, I came in contact with the band, and we started talking about a collaboration, which also was started soon thereafter. A little more than two years later we could present the band’s second album in the beginning of this Autumn, through my label Blindmen.

As it’s Christmas time the band wanted the entire album to be available for free download, and since the journey started, in a way, here on Meadowmusic, I thought it would be a good place to announce it in a post here. I have added three songs here below and if you’d like to listen and download the entire album you can visit Killer Clan of F.U.N.’s Bandcamp page.

I think it’s a wonderful album and also a fascinating journey to be a part of. They are a hard working rock band who have played at all possible and impossible scenes during the last two years. There’s an unstoppable and positive energy within this band that sometimes amazes me. It doesn’t seem to matter if they are playing a large venue or if they are playing on a small stage in front of a few visitors in pouring rain; it’s always 100% energy and focus. Well, I guess that’s what rock’n’roll really is about, a kind of joy of life through the music and a strong wish to share it with others.

“The World of Voodoo” is an album where the band pushes their rock frontiers even further. If the debut album mostly was about straight classic hard rock, now more influences have started to show themselves more clearly. One of them is a strong punk vibe you can hear in several songs, which goes hand in hand with the singer Maniac’s expression and lyrics. All in all it’s a great varied rock’n’roll adventure which I hope you will enjoy.

The band experienced a setback some week ago as the drummer Big Boned Barabas left the band, and they are now searching for a new drummer who can join them on tour next year.

To follow Killer Clan of F.U.N. you can visit their site or their Facebook page. The album is also available on Spotify.
If you like the cover illustration above I recommend having a look at Christian Wallin Illustrations‘ site. Christian is one of the guitar players of Killer Clan of F.U.N. and also works as an illustrator. He’s produced covers, logos and illustrations for a number of rock bands and rock festivals like for example Hardcore Superstar, Sister, Close Quarters, Skogsröjet et. al.

Vånna Inget – “Allvar”

Vånna Inget

Vånna Inget, hailing from Malmö, recently released their debut album “Allvar”. It’s punk in Swedish full of nice melodies and good songwriting. It’s anxiety, melancholy and lyrics that without diversions hit you in the stomach.

The production is simple and unpolished, which is not uncommon when it comes to punk rock, but I think that they have really succeeded here. There’s space and air enough to pour out as much energy as they like, while it feels just as much as real punk music and authentic as it should.

I also like that there’s quite some variation on the album, where they move from calmer pop-influenced songs to energic outbursts. A brilliant debut album with a singer in Karolina Engdahl that stands out.

Listen more on Spotify, Wimp or Soundcloud. You can find Vånna Inget on Facebook or on  their site. Here are a couple of songs:
