Pressing – Clear Blue (214 copies)
You might not know the name yet as Bone Idl are a brand new punk band from South Wales who formed just as the world began shutting down in 2020. Debut gigs were cancelled & plans abandoned as we all sat at home wondering if we’d ever be able to enjoy live music again. And hey, guess what? We can. And no sooner had Bone Idl finally played their first batch of gigs in August, September sees the arrival of their debut release on Brassneck Records. A five song EP of melodic but aggressive DIY punk rock that doesn’t pander to trends or tread predictable paths.
I was going to write a little “they remind me of” paragraph but every time I tried, I realised the references were so esoteric, they really didn’t do the band justice. And who wants to hear another band that sound like that other band you already like anyway? Listen to something new dammit.
