The Recently Deceived - Single Reviews: Misty and Halo

22 May 2018 // A review by Channel1
It's great to see The Recently Deceived are back with a new double single release following on from their excellent Use Your Head EP. They are simply one of the best "punk" bands you will see or hear and this single steps up the attitude on opener Misty. Terry (T-Rex) Johnston has one of those lived in voices, all smoke and alcohol with just the right amount of grit. It's a 3 min bass driven blast with the kind of chorus that made the Bleeders so popular. Relentless speed driven Punk 'n' Roll, it doesn't let up and is over far too soon.

B side Halo is a change in direction with its pop-punk leanings this song is catchier than an STD in their hometown of Hamilton and twice as hard to get out of your system. This is not a band that you need to listen to over and over again before you are hooked. The hit is instant and sustainable. The attitude is still there and adds a fire to the belly of this anti-love song, which is just how it should be.

Not only are The Recently Deceived great musicians they consistently write great songs with shout-along choruses and enough variation to keep any listener hooked. They are burning bright and dark on this new release with a collision of attitude, melody and musicianship. Do yourself a favour and check them out.

★★★★ (4 stars)

About The Recently Deceived

Hailing from Hamilton, the city everyone loves to hate, comes The Recently Deceived... a 'power house' four piece, providing high octane blistering punk.
The Recently Deceived offer up heart felt lyrics, spat over melodic hardcore rhythms... yes your ears will bleed, but... they will be pleased!

Ghost Who Walks - Single Review: Walking Talking Blues
06 Aug 2018 // by Channel1
Ghost Who Walks are one of those bands whose mixture of blues, funk and soul could easily fall into the abyss that is mediocrity. Like any band who mix genres, the result can be something that should be tasty but also runs the risk of coming out as bland as the rice crackers I am munching on while writing this.

Gig Review: Decades @ Whammy Bar, Auckland - 20/07/18
23 Jul 2018 // by Channel1
I love Auckland and I love Whammy Bar. A dive bar by definition, this underground venue has been the staple of underground bands for years and long may it continue.

These Four Walls - Single Review: Over and Over
17 Jul 2018 // by Channel1
These Four Walls have been around a long time. It's because they have a strong foundation built on late 90's, early 2000's rock.

Metaract - Video/Single Review: Never Forget
23 Jun 2018 // by Channel1
I was looking forward to hearing this new single from Aucklandís Meteract, after all, the pairing of a band comprising members of Tadpole and Just One Fix with the production skills of Dave Rhodes was never going to result in a sub-par release.I did have some concerns though, Chris was in one of my favourite bands from the early 2000ís, Redline, and Dave has worked with many acts with one most notable being Blindspott.

Gig Review: Brian Jonestown Massacre @ Powerstation, Auckland - 16/06/2018
18 Jun 2018 // by Channel1
It's a wet and windy night. The All Blacks playing means the bars surrounding Auckland's Powerstation are packed with rugby fans and finding a carpark is murder.
