Siouxsie Sioux, is that you? Nah, I know it’s not because this is just too good to be the Banshees, who were great when they were awesome, and just awful the other 85% of the time. Current Affairs are a newish band from Glasgow, Scotland, and their debut is an utterly infectious double A-side that manages to thread the needle between 80s postpunk throwback/tribute & forward-looking, muscular throb.
Hey, I’ll take your Girls At Our Best! and see you one Current Affairs, who not only tack on some slashing garage punk trappings onto a watery goth framework, but have a singer (Joan Sweeney) who can moan out a bouncy tune as well as any heavy-lidded ice queen from the Thatcher years. The 45 comes housed in a lovely risograph sleeve in an edition of 320; don’t sleep on it or some Batcave DJ will drive up demand & you’ll be buying it off the wall at Vinyl Fetish in five years. (Not Unloved; notunloved.bandcamp.com)
Wild and gnarly new releases continue to fly into DH HQ so it’s my duty to compile them & some of the record collection “back stock” every couple of weeks as “Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio“. This is the 134th edition, and it features new stuff from SOOT (pictured), HASH REDACTOR, LETHA RODMAN MELCHIOR, URANIUM CLUB and SKIFTANDE ENHETER, as well as reissues from MARS and SEX TIDE.
Get psyched beyond belief for additional filler from The Birthday Party, Amos and Sara, Pere Ubu, Dolly Mixture, Neutral, Geisterfahrer, LA Drugs and more of your favorites. Download it, stream it, and as always: go and tell the people.

Company policy over here at Dynamite Hemorrhage is to post PDFs of any issue that’s sold out, and is going to stay sold out. Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine #5 is the latest to be fully snapped up by the people – thank you.
This issue featured two interviews with Nick Schultz of the amazingly out-there 1990s label Majora Records; an interview with Maxine Funke; a feature on would-be punk era 45rpm singles that didn’t exist; a short interview with Edible Arrangements; a bunch of reviews and more.
Download Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine #5 here.
While we’re at it, here are links to the other out-of-print back issues of fanzines I’ve done, from Dynamite Hemorrhage to Superdope, my fanzine from over twenty years ago. Any questions, please let me know – and if you’d like to order print copies of the stuff we DO still have, you can do that here.
