DJ Grumpys Cranky Recommendations ! – Volume 1

The old grump points his dirty fingers at new & exciting acts that shouldnt be missed. This is gonna be an irregular but ongoing feature – here is volume 1 of powerfull bands that should reach a much greater audience – all have been and will continue to be featured on – but dont let it stop there, go check out all their respective pages and give the excellent tunes a thorough listen. Its well worth your while !

Mirtazapine Dreams
A new British act from the filthy end of the spectrum. As you probably know,
mirtazapine is the kind of antidepressive that leaves you spaced out and
dribbling, which is rather fitting for this downright dirty round of in your
face filthy rock and punk.

Talk to Angels
There’s something incredibly charming about these up and coming teenage guys from Talk to Angels, who bang the world over the head, with a wall of grand melodic rock symphonies with a wild edge. In particular, dig their single “Enemies Closer”. There is some pure and plain talent hidden here.

Frank Megabody
Frank is a giant of the Danish music festivals, but better known as a presenter than a musician. However, his atmospherical bluesrock hymns are definately worth a look. A tune like “Feel It” makes you think – “Hey, if Leonard Cohen were from the isolated plains of Western Jutland, this is what he would sound like”.

5 Shots O’ Whiskey
Mainland Europe keeps delivering brilliant new takes on punk, and what better example than 5 Shots O’ Whiskey from Holland. They have already released a couple of albums, and are in the process of recording a third, to be released this year. They are wild, aggressive and just fabulously mad – give them a thorough dig.

You can dig all these excellent new acts on their websites – and of course during the infamous DJ Grumpy shows on
