S3 Episode 23 – TNS Radio Punk Podcast

This week Ricky rams 20 of his current favorites into your face; recorded via the sole medium of his mobile phone and somebodies couch! A good mix of new and old tracks, a big emphasis on a few talented geniuses from Sweden, some DIY masochism, and ricky talking to himself feature probably a little too much.

Wonkfest

If you haven’t check out Wonkfest before. Well you should. This year’s festival, on 25th July, in London, will be amazing. We have asked Alex from the awesome TNS band Wonk Unit to tell you all about it. This is what he has to say:

———————–

Hi TNSrecords family! My name is Alex from the band Wonk Unit.

Once a year at the end of July we put on a crazy gig in London that we call Wonkfest. The bands that fit the criteria for this are the ones that have been important to us throughout our year of touring. The bands that put us on in the cities across the UK, the bands that have supported us, the bands with a similar ethos to the Wonk (ie folk that embrace diversity, tolerance, folk that smile and have respect for ones neighbours.).

We are looking to the future.We want the new blood. The leaders of the pack. the scene creators. The folk that get off their asses and do stuff for themselves.These are the bands that play Wonkfest.

Wonk Unit supporting Slaves

We embrace the aspect of community. We encourage everyone to bring a plate of food for a massive buffet! Everyone gets fed. Everyone meets new friends, some lucky devils get laid. It’s chilled, it’s friendly.

Bands not known in London get to play to a new fanbase who really appreciate the chance to see bands from afar. It works! These aren’t the bands you’ll see on your usual punk rock line ups. These aren’t the bands with the PR companies that you get pushed down your throat in magazines. These are THE REAL BANDS! The bands doing it in the UK right now in 2015. The bands you’ll probably see on the telly in a couple years time. PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARTY!!!!! XXXX

So if that hasn’t convinced you, what is wrong? OK, check out this documentary from last year’s festival:

Unregrettable

The Kirkz with new album ‘Unregrettable’

The Kirkz are back everybody. They have a brand new album out on Friday for your ears. It is available to pre-order now from the webstore and you can download it from our bandcamp on a ‘pay what you want’ basis. We all know Max can talk, so here is what he has to say about the album…

Unregrettable. The album The Kirkz have been threatening to make since the last one. In fact the album The Kirkz have been threatening to make since since the four of them came together in 1998. Scene outlasting, naïve to every punk rock trend over the last 17 years The Kirkz have always done things their own way. This is no doubt poles apart from the right way but that’s what we have to work with.

The Kirkz playing at the Swan

11 bolts of music, 24 blistering minutes. In all but their continued existence The Kirkz learnt long ago not to outstay their welcome. The Fifth Plague is foisted on you in same way 5 more years of hurt and degradation has been pressed into your arms. The wars “over there” are an ever present to the extent of background noise (Curtain Call, Tanks and Machinery). Yet the real drama is any outspokenness hurting someone’s feelings (They Came for Me). And the death of scandal as any outrage has a two week shelf life before it’s forgotten for a new trend (Need to Know). They say if you’re not angry then you’re paying attention. Well we’ve paid close attention.

As per 2010’s Agroculture, Unregrettable is released again on Manchester’s shining example, TNSrecords. There is a limited run of CDs out there for as low price as we can do them. The album will also be available on the TNS Bandcamp on a “pay what you want basis”. It’s a pretty dam novel idea in 2015, how about we make the best album we can afford to off our own backs and then just give it to you for nothing?

It’s yours take it, give it a spin. Maybe you won’t regret it.

Head to our bandcamp page on Friday to download the album.

You can pre-order the album and t-shirt deal from our webstore HERE.

Check the Kirkz out on Facebook HERE.

TNSrecords T-shirt Subscription Series

We like t-shirts. Especially t-shirts with animals swearing on them. We wanted loads of new designs so we decided to try something different. We have asked some of our favourite designers to come up with a t-shirt design for TNS as well as asking you to submit your proposals. With so many great ideas we decided to print a new t-shirt each month with a limited run of just 25 for each design. This is your chance to get your hands on all 12 t-shirts through the year for just £95. If you don’t have all the money up front get in touch with us via our facebook page or email (info@tnsrecords.co.uk) and we will sort something out.

The first design is from an illustration by Dan Allen (Ducking Punches). If you think you have seen the design before you are right. It was used on the a TNS all-dayer post a couple of years ago.

You can buy a subscription HERE (just 10 available) or pick up the Alan Partridge design HERE (just 15 available).

There will only be 10 subscriptions available with the remaining 15 t-shirts available to buy as they come out. Subscriptions will be available for the first two months or until they sell out. Subscribers will be able to tell us if they want a certain t-shirt in a different size, just get in touch as soon as a new design comes out.

Due to there being 12 individual items postage will cost £28. But if you live in Manchester or want to collect them all together when you visit, or see one of us at a gig somewhere in the UK, just select pick-up at gig. We will post each t-shirt out as they arrive.

“’Ignorance Is This’ is pure testosterone ska, perfect for those with a bit of bite in their skank. 4/5” Big Cheese
‘Faintest Idea are a band deep set in the wave of anti-Coalition politics stirred in UK music.  They are angry, direct and do their genre a great service in their pointed rage and well-crafted Operation Ivy-style ska-punk.  Their sound is at times bouncy, at times raw and always perfectly pinned down, reminiscent of Against All Authority, The Filaments and Have Nots.’ Push To Fire
“All in all, this is a killer second album and is perfect for fans of The Filaments, Suicide Bid, Citizen Fish and UK ska punk in general.”Shot in the Foot
