香港金属明信片唱片公司(Metal Postcard Records)创始人兼所有人Sean Hocking在半个世纪前出生在澳大利亚。他的青葱岁月是在金属乐队和斯卡音乐浸泡的西印度群岛度过的。七十年代初，迁居至英国，最初的音乐记忆之一是Roxy Music 在“Top of the Pops”节目上所演奏的Virginia Plain，接着是 Marc Bloan的T-REX，还有David Bowie的Space Oddity，从此他便深陷其中。在12岁时，Sex Pistols, Clash & The Damned通过John Peel的广播节目出现在他卧室的录音机上。十几岁的时候，追随着Siouxisie & the Banshees，the Cure还有全国其它乐队。十几岁时最难忘的演出无疑时Black Flag在英国的首演。在1983年是来到澳大利亚，引荐了了一些包括the Scientists from Perth在内的天才乐团，也成为了Kurt Cobain最大的影响之一……绝对是邋遢摇滚的表率。
Sean Hocking founder and owner of Hong Kong based record label Metal Postcard Records was born half a century ago in Australia. He spent his younger years running around barefoot in the West Indies soaking up steel bands & ska music. Moving to the UK in the early seventies, one of his first musical memories was seeing Roxy Music playing Virginia Plain on the ‘Top Of The Pops’ show, then Marc Bloan’s T-Rex, and David Bowie’s Space Oddity. He was hooked. At the age of 12 the Sex Pistols, Clash & The Damned came into his living room and onto his record player via the genius of John Peel’s radio show. Teenage times involved following Siouxsie and the Banshees, the Cure and other bands around the country. Greatest teenage gig moment was without doubt seeing Black Flag play their first ever UK gig. A visit to Australia in 1983, introduced incredible bands including the Scientists from Perth, who later went on to become one of Kurt Cobain’s main influences…definitely the grungiest band ever. Pt.1.

Fat White Family – Is It Raining In Your Mouth
简单来说,他们就是在这颗星球上最好的新乐队。来自布里克斯顿的这支乐队有着十几年来最可怕以及最有趣的现场产出,我能够记得他们专辑每首歌的每一句歌词,他们的首发专辑“香槟浩劫”。想象一下, The Birthday Party,The Happy Mondays 与 Johnny Cash 聚在伦敦南部,产生一些不同凡响的化学反应。我他们专辑的任何一首歌都是杰作…之所以选这首是因为有MV。
Quite simply the best new band on the planet. Straight out of Brixton, this band have the scariest and most fun live show going at the moment and for the first time in a decade, I know every lyric, to every song on an album, their debut, ‘Champagne Holocaust’. Imagine The Birthday Party and The Happy Mondays getting together with Johnny Cash in South London and they’ve all done some serious meth. I could have chosen any of the songs of the album…but as this one has a video so it’ll do.
