I'm Afraid of Americans


Well, this has been a week hasn't it. Today's episode of Wednesdays With Andrew promises to soothe your soul with an eclectic mix of punk (and punkish) bands from all over the globe. 

Oh, and I made a map.

Listen to the newest episode of #WWA to check out tunes from bands like Stiff Little Fingers, Hi-Standard, Oxymoron, Burning Heads, Los Kung Fu Monkeys and more..



Liner notes:

This week, we have a motherfuckin' map to serve as our tracklist! 

Pretty, pretty, pretty good. Explore the map to see where your fresh tunes are being sourced



Here's the video to Bowie/Reznor's video for I'm Afraid of Americans:


Oh and go support an up-and-coming garage punk band from the Netherlands! Say HALLO to Captain Ortega and listen to their music and such.


It's funny, 'hallo' is Dutch for 'hello'...but that's how I say hello anyway. So I'm halfway there to learning Dutch.

That's it, catch ya next week

Ew, Kavanaugh has a 10 year old daughter, which means she was conceived when he was 43.

Hot off the press


New songs, old art.

Welcome to the latest episode of Wednesdays With Andrew, your weekly overdose of punk (and punkish!) rock.

Today's playlist features nothing but the freshest tunes, released in August, from some incredible bands. While we feature only brand spankin' new tracks, today's episode art is a throwback to the retro #WWA style...thanks for your minutes of tireless effort there, B-Side!

Get a taste of some recently-released new material from bands like Swingin' Utters, The Frights, Night Birds, Slothrust, IDLES and more, NOW:


Liner notes:


On today's episode, all the bands we feature are making music great again



For those who rocked today's episode, we salute you. Go support all these artists for the tireless work they do to bring joy to our ear holes:





Slothrust
edit - I fudged and said this album was released last week (it's still in pre-release) The Pact isn't publicly available until Sept 14, but you can still listen to some tracks off the forthcoming album! And trust me it's gonna be worth the extra week and change wait to listen to the whole thing.






For anyone who has not yet seen the demon Mr Bubz video, you're welcome:



Aright that's a lot of new music for my brain, time for a nap. Tune in next week for more punk (and punkish!) rock
