This is what Jonny Takeaway has to say about Wonk Unit.

“Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?

Well, you should if you are ignorant of the air, leanings and grandeur of Wonk Unit, London’s improbable heroes. Heroes of community, of politics and melody.

Champions of Wonkfest, the ever growing London festival that is key to the punk rock calendar. Yes, punk rock. Individual, ironic, poignant and occasionally wistful, Wonk Unit deliver “Mr Splashy” in your ears and it resonates in a contemporary way, legitimizing the mantra of “21st century punks”.
My mate Sean brought home the latest Descendents effort on vinyl recently and spun a few tunes. My reaction?“This sounds like Wonk Unit”. Case closed.

Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated? Honk If You Wonk.”

Tell me you’re not excited! Don’t hang about. We have a limited amount of some of the colour variations.

Revenge of the Psychotronic Man Release Album Teaser Video

Continuing the theme of naming their releases after quotes from their hero and mentor, Alan Partridge, Revenge of the Psychotronic Man’s new record is called ‘Colossal Velocity’. To launch the album, the band have paid homage to Alan by stealing/adapting the teaser trailer for his debut film ‘Alpha Papa’.
Check out the video HERE
Colossal Velocity is actually one of the rejected titles for the film discussed in their teaser trailer. Watch it here.

 
‘Colossal Velocity’ is the highly anticipated follow up to 2012’s critically acclaimed ‘Shattered Dreams Parkway’ in the summer of 2016.

Revenge described the new record as “having all the speed and energy people expect, but with some new twist and turns” and “lyrical content that ranges from changing the world through one minute songs with lyrics you can’t decipher, space travel and former footballer Niall Quinn”.

The album will be released through TNSrecords (and 5FeetUnder Records in Denmark) in July 2016.

S3 Episode 51 – TNS Radio Punk Podcast

Andy, Fizzy and The Domestics recorded this podcast at 2am after the last TNS Manchester gig. It includes sophisticated critical analysis of Cards Against Humanity, an insight into life in The Domestics and Kibou Records and much more. The original was an hour and forty minutes so we’ll have to save the discussions about ‘Cheese on a Plate’, the Staffordshire Fondue and other magical microwave recipes for next time. There are hardly any bits when it’s just drunk people shouting over each other. Some of the above is a lie.

New Album from Faintest Idea: Pre-oder Now

We are incredibly excited to announce that we are releasing the brand new Faintest Idea album, ‘Increasing The Minimum Rage’ on 1st April. It’s available to pre-order now on both vinyl and CD.

We go back such a long way with Faintest Idea. They have played our live events for years and years and are one of a very small number of bands who featured on our volume one compilation who still regularly gig. This will be the third album they have released on TNS. We’ve seen them go from one of the most exciting up and coming UK bands to one of Europe’s most established, relevant and widely regarded ska punk acts.

_MG_5385

Thoughtful and well-informed lyrical content is presented in the form of upbeat, dancey yet edgey, two tone fuelled and brass driven punk rock. It is a pleasure to see the crowd reactions that this band regularly receives and it is very much deserved. This album is the first with the current line up and it also features Vic Ruggerio on keys.

Faintest Idea say “the new record sounds heavier both musically and lyrically than our previous releases. With free market capitalism still rampant things don’t look too great for the younger generation. The album is a reflection of the time we find ourselves in, it is the sound of people trying to keep hope in a seemingly bleak future.”

The band will be releasing a series of music videos to coincide with the release and there will be several options for t-shirt/hoodie bundles. It will be available on vinyl (100 pink, 200 translucent green) and CD. There will also be a free dub remix of the album available in around 6 months time. ‘Increasing Minimum Rage’ is available to preorder now from TNSrecords.

Make sure you check out the Faintest Idea facebook page to keep up with all the release info as it’s available.

Go pre-order your copy now, especially if you want to grab one of the vinyl colour variations!

New Release: Mighty Midgets – Raising Ruins for the Future

We are really excited to announce that we have joined forces with loads of great labels to re-release the Mighty Midgets’ album ‘Raising Ruins for the Future’ on vinyl for the first time. You can pre-order the album now from the TNSrecords webstore. Released on the 18th December the album is available on both pink (150) and black (150) vinyl. We have a limited amount of copies so be quick if you want one.

Make sure you grab your copy HERE!

Here is a bit about the album…

In 2010 we were sent a copy of ‘Raising Ruins For the Future’ by Mighty Midgets for review for our fanzine. We instantly fell in love with it. The combination of ferocious speed, combined with unforgettable melodies was absolutely spot on. It was a game changer. We wrote a superlative filled review and promptly ordered some copies to sell in our distro and to spread the word about a fantastic band.

It turned out that the guys ran their own label in Denmark; the fantastic 5 Feet Under Records. It was so cool to find a group of people with such similar ideas and ethos to ourselves, who also played such brilliant music. We decided to work together on some projects, the most notable being an International Split, which featured Mighty Midgets, Revenge of the Psychotronic Man, Fist of the North Star (USA) and Broken Aris (Sweden), which was collectively released by TNS, 5 Feet Under and Stikman Records (USA). It’s amazing what can be done when people work together.

This was the start of TNS working outside of the UK and it has continued over the last few years, with UK bands getting released/playing in Scandinavia and Scandinavian acts coming over here. It is an absolute pleasure to continue to work with 5 Feet Under, they are a big part of the TNS family. Mighty Midgets stopped gigging a few years back and we were always disappointed that Raising Ruins was never released on vinyl, so when the guys came to us and said they wanted to rerelease it on 12 inch we were absolutely delighted.

We have some copies on pink vinyl and some on black. The art is beautifully designed by guitarist, Niels. We are so proud to be releasing what is genuinely one of our favourite records. We will be in Denmark next week to see the band playing live at 5 Feet Under Fest. And don’t worry, we’ll be trying to convince them to do some UK dates too.

S3 Episode 41 – TNS Radio Punk Podcast

This week, Scott and Ricky managed to crank out another hour of weirdness – from the jazz of Pigbag to the electronic noise of Ill.

We actually had a real discussion! We disagreed and argued and COULD THIS BE THE END OF BARBADOS SLIM!? No, we were just drunk.

But seriously, the make-up sex was great, though.

S3 Episode 38 – TNS Radio Punk Podcast

In a desperate bid for originality, this week Scott and Ricky get together to play their favourite live recordings of big bands. It turned out great!

We had a fine chat about some memorable (and not so memorable) gigs of bygone times. Scott has some big news to share and Ricky rambled on about memory conditioning for a bit.

We apologise to Maximum The Hormone for not being able to pronounce their track, but our Kanji is terrible!
