This week’s Wassup Rocker Radio Video Mixtape starts out with Swedish punk rockers Rotten Mind playing their song “Things I Can’t See” followed by L.A. shock rockers Starcrawler performing their song “Ants.” Up next is a very 60’s sounding but brand new song by U.K. rocker, Paul Orwell called “Attack” and last but not least Kilo Tango with her video for the song “Don’t Bring Me Roses!”
Rotten Mind is a typical punk band, restless youth with a background in the hardcore punk band Agent Attitude. The band is on an everlasting search away from their everyday boredom, continue living fast and in chaos to keep those voices out of the head.
Starcrawler‘s song “Ants” is packed with explosive, gritty rock ‘n’ roll riffs and a dexterous, commanding vocal courtesy of de Wilde. One fan describes it as “if T-Rex and Bauhaus had offspring.” Another thinks, “Joey Ramone is smiling from rock and roll heaven!” And that’s just the recording.
The London area singer/songwriter, Paul Orwell will steamroll you with his retro energy and if you didn’t know any better you would think this was the solo project from a member in The Pretty Things, Small Faces or The Animals. The young brash lad has just flipped that sound and released one of the best sounding ‘60s beat British Invasion records in 2015 with plenty of distorted guitars, mood pacing organ, and hooks that will keep you coming back for more.
With classic garage pop hooks, and a memorable melody. Kilo Tango’s “Don’t Bring Me Roses” will hook you so deep you’ll be singing it in the middle of the night.
