Feelin’ Lucky s/t LP I do my best to avoid namedrop band comparisons, but I would be remiss if it wasn’t stated that Supercharger wasn’t the first thing that popped into my head upon hearing Feelin’ Lucky’s debut 12”. It’s dripping all over with that stain (they cover "Icepick" to make it official). Still, this Brisbane, Australia outfit turns up the guitar crunch (and throws in the odd fiery lead) with heavier handed vocals, giving it more of a punk punch. There’s also a good deal of that dumb-charm on these songs, most of which are good-n-catchy. It’s simple, loud, raw and sloppy. And dumb. In a good way, of course. Scum stats: supposedly limited to only 100 copies.(LB) (Swashbuckling Hobo Records // myspace.com/swashbucklingrecords)

Hey there, I guarantee you can play guitar about fifty times better than me - BUT, it's great that you are a really solid bass-player, as that's the thing that pulls it all together (while I flail and fumble for the next chord). Dammit, this might actually work. Will put some practice in and try to become less rubbish. As for live bands in London, I'm way out of that loop. All we have in Cambridge is crust and psychobilly. The Garage at Highbury Corner usually has decent stuff on.
Thanks for getting in touch. This is great stuff! What instrument are you playing here?
Trouble is, you're WAAAAY better than I am. I can write songs, but I'm still fumbling my way around the fretboard. And I can thump the drums like anyone who's just walked off the street, though I did take a couple of lessons, but that's about it. I'm a 41-year-old writer-dude here in Cambridge with kids etc to take care of so regular practice is not really an option! That's why I just wanted to crash together some songs as quickly as possible and get 'em out as a 7"... because I don't have a lot of time to spend! Maybe I'm being over-optimistic about my abilities and what is possible...
Uh, you uploaded an MP3 ("Jerk"). I specifically asked for WAVs only. Did you read the discussion topic? If so, please do. I even linked it in the comment below for you. Also, if you submit a WAV, don't rip it from an MP3. Use the original digital master or CD. Thanks.

"Boy , if this had been available for (Ugh) viewing and (UGH!!!) listening in the 40's , The Axis powers would have imploded much faster , and The Allies would have won WWII without dropping the H- Bomb.
