“The Horse and Other Weird Tales” is the third album from the Finnish psych-heavy blues band, following their self-titled album in 2012 and “Second Psychedelic Coming: The Aquarius Tapes” in 2015.
Captain Sensible aka Raymond Ian Burns. A unique musical figure that succeeded to associate his name with the Punk explosion in Britain in the late ‘70s. One of The Damned’s founding members (where he started initially as a bass player) and afterwards a solo pop singer, Captain displayed from the very beginning all the prerequisites that render him a punk rock icon in people’s minds. Brilliant, sarcastic, unconventional and with a great deal of humour but most importantly, with loads of memories from an era that is long gone. Artcore magazine met Captain, while taking advantage of the wonderful weather, in order to discuss with him his experiences and memories from the turbulent decades of 1970s and 1980s and also his thoughts on future plans as a musician.
If you really expect the white prince to come out from a fairy tale and take upon his white horse to save you from your troubles, then rest assured that Kimi Kärki is the blonde Finnish man who, although without a white horse, but nevertheless with an acoustic guitar, comes your way in order reveal to you the sense of the folkloric beauty.

The scattered stars under the cold sky of Finland navigated Goatspeed to grasp the meaning of his personal redemption and find his own way.
Post rock epicness from a band that has never lowered its musical standards and kept alive its very own tradition in the music it produces. No more words are necessary. Their music should be enough.

For a third consecutive year King Dude comes to Greece, carrying with him his eerie ensemble and his love for the Greek public. Gradually gaining fans in Greece, this year’s gig is expected to be as dramatic as the previous ones.
Imagine a gray cityscape, a mute human reverberation, a sad and trivial life that progresses into the future. You stand still; you listen; and imply to yourself that even death can be welcomed... When out of a sudden the melody of despair becomes a cry for life. The notes dissolve the bleak atmosphere allowing the light of hope to overcome its cowardice, disbanding grayness and penetrate liberatingly in your lungs. You decide to live! This strange mixing of sadness and optimism is transmitted through the songs that make up Homeward Bound by Vinyl Suicide.
Los Angeles, in the early 1980s and some of the local youth form their own bands, playing for their friends. Although influenced by Punk they began, however, to play a music that differed significantly from it and it was more reminiscent of the Psychedelic and Garage Rock of the 1960s
Normally, one would wonder why a group playing a music style that is already 54 years old is worthy of an interest. The fact that Dirty Fuse play mainly their own compositions, they already have an audience that follows them fanatically, that within a few years they have recorded five albums and EPs and one of their pieces has been voted one of the 101 best Surf Tracks Worldwide from 1970 onwards, are more than enough reasons to generate an interest. The good thing is that they are not the only!
What means religious faith to you? Could it be a misinterpretation, an illusion, a mental relief, a definitive truth? To me, there is no point for a conclusive verdict to be drawn, mostly because it has a different meaning to everybody. And this is why, throughout the centuries, the most peculiar things have been religiously worshipped. From celestial bodies and humans, who are perceived to have ascended to heaven after their resurrection, to Argentinean soccer players and the greatest sax maestro the world has ever known.
This time the baroness is dressed in purple – and it suits her a lot!
One more album exclusively for everywhere progsters? No. Subsignal offer an album for anyone who wants to spend 1 hour of uplifting music.
The postponement of The Sisters of Mercy concert in October resulted in a strange situation: Within 24 hours I watched in the same venue the much expected concerts of two popular bands in Greece. Despite their significant musical differences, the fact that The Sisters of Mercy belong in the original Post-Punk generation in contrast to Editors who are Post-Punk Revivalists, led to some inevitable comparisons. Here are the results ...
The case of ION is neither new - nor coincidental. With a career starting in the 1980s, ION or Giannis Papaioannou not only gives meaning to what “underground” should mean but strongly emphasizes it so that that both the concept and himself are finally transparent and impressive. With his occasionally different or overlapping competencies - journalist, musician, producer, and amazing dj - ION never stands still: he is in constant discovery of new corners in the urban environment that he lives and loves, gaining new audiences that will accompany him to his otherworldly and transcendental musical travels.
Every time I come across some unknown but interesting music on the Internet, I can’t help but wondering how small the range of my musical taste would be without it...
North of England, 1968: The Mods have been defeated. Progressive and Hard Rock sounds are now popular. And yet... many working-class teenagers seek in good outfits, Soul music and amphetamines an identity that will make them "distinct". Without any particular ideological position and by actually adopting foreign cultural elements (Italian fashion, black music) they created a subculture that lasted until the mid 70s, when Punk and Disco changed everything.
The sound of silk: a musical get together that was thousands of years late
Can the seventh album of a band be as good as their first?
All the way from Aegean sea & Sappho’s island we introduce Aithale.
"Music has always brought me through, even in times when I've had nothing. Music has given me everything and I feel I have to give everything back. I don't know what I'd do without it, it's in my blood and bones, the only constant throughout the whole of my life (one of his notable quotations)”
Night out! My appetite is set for a beautiful spring evening, accompanied by electronic melodies… The so called “electronic scene” of the city has disappointed me. I thought to myself that I would like to listen to something nice from the past so I sent an email to Stephan Bodzin. I asked him if he had time for an interview. I’d like to hear what someone, who offered a different tune to the electronic scene, has to say about all that, and perhaps give me some hope that the underground club scene of Greece will re-emerge.
My skype interview with Mr Trentemøller is set for 12:00pm. After consulting ten people, I am now almost sure about the time difference between Greece and Denmark, I've gone through my questions a hundred times, I have placed tape-recorders all over my desk just in case the skype recorder breaks down, today of all days (wouldn't be impossible with my luck…), and I'm now listening to his music to get into the right mood. Oh yes, among everything else, I must not forget to ask him, on behalf of my friend,Thodoris, about the story of 'Miss you'. I cross my self and behold...
Dusty Kid… the producer who mixes classical music with psychedelia and dark bass. From 2006 till today, he offers to his fans electronic sounds that could easily satisfy both those true believers of “old school acid” as well as our present day minimal worshippers.
The first interview of Artcore magazine: The German electronic/progressive house music producer, Lars Brodherr, aka DJ Larse … We are pleased to have him answer some of our questions…
My finger is stuck on the repeat button. So is my mind. For two years I have been waiting for this bloody album to be released. Now, I'm finally vindicated.
