    The Kut – ‘I Want You Maniac’ (Out Now on Criminal Records)

    Listen now! Make your own mind up: http://www.last.fm/music/The+Kut/I+Want+You+Maniac
    I Want You Maniac
    If you like it please give it a heart <3

    Produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred / White Zombie / Sonic Boom Six / My Vitriol), The Kut -‘I Want You Maniac’ is an upbeat, grunge fused horror-rock track taken from the bands forthcoming EP. As a quick follow up to their ‘Make Up’ EP, it has been good news that the band is back in the studio so soon, especially given what spanned a near 3 year hiatus.

    Front-woman Maha spoke about the single, shortly after the news they’d been confirmed on the Camden Nightmare Festival line up today… “We’ve always wanted to put out a Halloween single, it’s always been our rock Christmas, and I Want You Maniac was the right track for us to celebrate it with... It’s been awesome working with James in the studio again, and the video was a lot of fun to make as well… We envisioned it as a zombie version of pet cemetery, it’s a bit scary”

    Forthcoming Dates
    Fri 31st Oct: Halloween Special, The Lincoln Imp, Scunthorpe
    Sat 1st Nov: Nightmare Festival, (Proud Camden), London
    Mon 10th Nov: The Black Heart, Camden, London

    The Kut: Biography
    Inspired by bands like Deftones, L7, Hole, Incubus, Placebo, Nirvana, Faith No More and others, The Kut are a London basement rock trio formed from the alternative scene. Having been voted into in the winning spots for MTV UK Brand New Unsigned 2014 Poll, the recent ‘Make Up’ EP was produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred / White Zombie / My Vitriol / Page & Plant / Def Leppard), featuring 3 brand new tracks plus 2 previous releases ‘DMA’ and ‘Closure’. The latest offering, ‘I Want You Maniac’ ties some of those tracks together, combining elements of horror pop with their grunge rock sound. Recently joined by ex-Riot Squad drummer, Violet, on drums, the band are due to release their new EP in Spring 2015.

    This year the band’s first EP, ‘Make Up’ saw dark and emotive tracks like ‘No Trace’ into the Scuzz Most Wanted Rock Chart, alongside bands like Paramore, Green Day - as well as playlisted on their 'All-Stars of Rock Show'. The single was also supported by Alex Baker on Kerrang! Radio and picked up by BBC Introducing in Lancashire and Oxford. This lead to The Kut being invited in for a BBC Introducing live set, where they performed a 4 song set live from the Blackburn studios. The video was play listed on Putpat TV (Germany, Switzerland, Austria) and featured by Vevo, with a number of USA stations also including the track.

    Most recent single ‘Mario’, was supported by Scuzz TV on their ‘Huge Rock Anthems’ show, as well as Putpat TV and BBC Introducing Lancashire, just ahead of the release. The band’s previous video, ‘Closure’ was playlisted on Sub TV, Tuune and NME TV (Radar), whilst their first ever video ‘DMA’ (aka Doesn’t Matter Anyway) was added to 16 USA cable channels on the Bongo Boy Rock n Roll Show this May. The band has also had a number of tracks playlisted at the major UK clubs including Club NME and Medication. Previous shows include London 2012 Olympics and the Paralympics, and a sold out UK tour. In 2013 the band performed DJ sets for Kerrang! Klub, London and a string of 14 dates on the Club Criminal tour.

    Kerrang! Magazine
    “Despite the loud Courtney love references they’re more than just Hole II. Mario has an Against Me! Strut to the intro, while DMA is a pounding gem”

    Metal Mouth
    “If they can fulfill their early promise, then The Kut could end up being a big name in no time at all.” 8/10

    Subba-Cultcha
    “Heavy guitar, banging drums, dirty crisp vocals and a whole of attitude… the NMS would like to welcome The Kut to the party … without a shadow of a doubt they’re on the ascendancy! ”

    Hit The Floor Magazine
    “[No Trace] epitomises the girls’ influences from the likes of Nirvana and Incubus, displaying their no messing around approach to modern day grunge and taking us back to the early 90′s, where grunge rock was at it’s best!”

    Bristol Live Magazine
    “If Deftones and Hole had a little baby they’d probably sound like The Kut”

    Tasty Fanzine
    “‘Mario’ has guitar hook similar to Trey Spruance era Faith No More and an awesome ending. ‘Closure’ and ‘DMA’ are equally noteworthy and the whole EP is impressively polished. Bravo The Kut.” 7/10

    SWNK Magazine
    “No Trace, the opening song on The Kut’s Make up EP, has a big chance of being the most played song this summer. Awesome stuff!”

    Alt Dialog
    “It’s almost as if Soundgarden and Hole were put into a blender with The Kut being the result.”

    Ultimate Underground
    “They are equal parts L7 and bands like Placebo. They even show influences of Nirvana without being a retread and falling prey to the familiar.”

    Seba-Rashii Culture
    “When we first heard The Kut, we knew that the London based trio were going to be worth keeping a careful ear on. Our patience has been rewarded with the release of the Make Up E.P!”

    Uproar Webzine
    “Known for their enthusiasm and uncontrollable energy on stage, The Kut have created quite a crazy fan base who as you would expect are ecstatic over the release of their new EP, Make Up.”

    Peek-a-boo Magazine
    “The Kut present a sonic collage that evokes everything that made the 1990’s alternative rock scene such a beautifully broken beast”

    Blast Out Your Stereo
    “Grunge trio, The Kut have released a brand new music video for their song, “Mario,” which is off their upcoming EP, Make Up.. Trust me, you’ll be singing along to this number for a while (if you aren’t already).”

    Mistree Magazine
    “Mario” is 90s alternative rock at it’s very best. It is gritty and heavy, with chugging riffs and thudding percussion.”

    Palace of Rock
    “There are moments when the all female rock band The Kut sounds like Courtney Love´s Hole… But there are also moments when this London trio bring thoughts to a heavier The Bangles like “Mario”, I guess you can call it grunge pop.”

    Backseat Mafia
    “The rock girl trio based in London have not long since visited my hometown’s longest running live music venue The Lincoln Imp. I went to see them live and they rocked the room with their melodic tracks, long metal hair shaking and rock stances.”

    Who's there?

    Crumbling website.

    Crumbling website who??

    Crumbling website what doesn't support indie bands no mo.

    I'm really curious if anyone ever bothers with the music here on LastFM anymore. Is there still music here??

    Personally, it's kinda sad because this site used to be a great way to find new, up and coming indie bands.

    I hate the streaming from YouTube thing. It's clunky and who wants to use up all that bandwidth on videos when you're just listening to the radio?

    Am I alone in this?

    From Blabpipe's 4th album - Overlook the Madness

    ...here's Gone !



    We all watch in silence, and some in horror, while LastFM tosses and turns - what was once great is now something the cat won't drag in.



    Speaking of YouTube...

    Here's a video from the album Right Now !!

    Here's Chong !!

  • In Blight We Thrive

    17 Jun 2014, 10:32 by mistersirband

    Two Chords, the band of four engineers from Siberia has released their debut album In Blight We Thrive which revives rock-music.
    Tired of that crap about heavy music death under the oppression of major labels and trends, Two Chords resurrect rock bringing back hope and rebellion. The latest one reflects in every word spoken by these guys: "Seems like we are all taking part in the Cold War II: the Western world hates Russia and Russians hate everything about the USA. But you know, we don't want to separate ourselfs from the rest of the world. That's why we sing everything in English to let everyone understand us".
    They plug their scuffed guitars into the dead body, turn the volume on the cheapest Chineese distortion to the maximum and started to play rock.
    Rude like Siberian men, sensitive like lesbians, multi-faceted like Russian tricolour and totally free like a fat-woman's dress. This is Two Chords. This is hope.

    Three best songs from the record:
    Fallen Dreams (feat. Slava Zhdanov)
    Hey, Jimmy Kimmel, I Have Gone Through A Terrible Break-Up (Album Edit)
    Хуй С Ней (Album Edit)

  • Problems with Youtube embedded videos on Last.fm

    13 Apr 2014, 22:01 by garynotrashcoug

    Not sure if you've noticed this yet, but there are a lot embedded music videos from Youtube which load on this site, but when you press play you get the following error message:

    This video contains content from SME, who has blocked it from display on this website.

    Now, you can still follow the link to Youtube and watch them there, but it kind of defeats the purpose of having them embedded on this website if you can't play (and scrobble) them directly. If you find any of these videos during your journey across the vast landscape of Last.fm, kindly consider flagging them, so we can weed them out and reduce future frustration. Just look for the little flag icon and "Flag Video" link on the lower right. Thanks guys!

  • 100,000+ Plays!

    26 Feb 2014, 10:17 by garynotrashcoug

    Five and a half years on Last.fm and here I am, passing 100,000 scrobbled tracks. It's funny, right around this time last year, I'd just scrobbled my iPod and ended up passing the 50,000 mark. Looking back at that post, it was even around the same time early morning. The wheel of time and fate spins..... like a record..... right round..... baby, right round..... time for some stats (minus podcasts, sound medicine stuff, untitled tracks, etc....):

    TOP ARTISTS
    1. Solar Fields
    2. Boards of Canada
    3. Squarepusher
    4. Carbon Based Lifeforms
    5. Venetian Snares
    6. Talking Heads
    7. Aphex Twin
    8. 平沢進 (Hirasawa Susumu)
    9. Burial
    10. µ-Ziq

    TOP TRACKS

    9. Prefuse 73 - One Word Extinguisher (162)
    10. Shpongle - Nothing Lasts... But Nothing Is Lost (160)



    This journal entry is something of a time capsule. My listening tastes are so fickle (so different right now even from what these stats show), I wonder what they'll look like after 200,000 plays?

    And last but certainly not least, McKillaboy badges!
