Swiss Stoner/Punk/Rock heroes Papertank have shared “Virus” for FREE DOWNLOAD
Swiss/French stoner/punk/rock power-trio Papertank have just inked a deal with the famous local label company Division Records (Closet Disco Queen, Impure Wilhelmina, Jonbar Hinge, Rorcal, Shovel, Unfold…) to release their debut full-length album coming out in May 2017 for physical & Digital.
Somewhere between garage vibes; punk, stoner and “minimalist-rock”, the band have already shared a first audio/video recording a few months ago with the song “Virus” still available on YouTube before the launch, more tunes to come very soon…
In the meantime, the single is still available for FREE DOWNLOAD on Bandcamp.
I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
