Modern Men release Oscar Alpha

54 seconds of blistering noise rock, Modern Men know how to make an entrance. From the opening drum blasts from B.Davies you know you should of put your seat belt on.

The strung out riffs of R.Davies and B.Hemsell create a thunderously disorientating ride for D.Davis’ near psychotic vocals. This is severely pissed off stuff.

Featuring members of Rat The Magnificent, Hot Sauce Pony, Cheel Ghar, The Olmec Diagram, Brenda/The Feral Text.

“Four failing adults shout about the futility of the human condition whilst drinking quality whiskey. Heavy noise rock for the terminally disenfranchised.”

Old enough to know better these Modern Men are for the amp-worship fans of Some Girls, Head Wound City, Converge, Coalesce, The Jesus Lizard, Oxbow, The Melvins and Part Chimp.


Rat the Magnificent | ITCH 2 video

Rat the Magnificent’s second video is one b-side from In The Middle which has been described as
“Relentless post-punk fuzz” [Overblown] and a “Brutal white-knuckle ride” [Best Tuna].

ITCH 2 was recorded at Brixton Hill Studios and features the always perfect guitar work of Jen Macro (Hurtling, MBV, Graham Coxon, Charlotte Hatherley).Thunderingly kinetic, ITCH 2 is dedicated to worrying about the finer things in life with the video looking at those things on a grander scale.

In The Middle was the first single from The Body As Pleasure, Rat the Magnificent’s debut album coming out through TTWD Records in summer 2018. Hear the single on bandcamp

“In The Middle has a full frontal scorched earth policy type attack and in the end is an ode to lust and carnal acts where Anderson sings of the immediacy of desire.”

Rat the Magnificent IN THE MIDDLE


In the Middle is the first single to be taken from Rat The Magnificent’s debut album The Body As Pleasure, coming out on the fiercely independent TTWD Records in Spring 2018.

“Muscular, fuzz-drenched post-punk” Joyzine
“Stomping, Cramps’ish, punk-blues” Dexter Bentley, Resonance FM

Featuring Ian Catskilkin of Art Brut/ Future of the Left, Ross Davies and Anna Dodridge of BBC Radio 6 Music darlings Hot Sauce Pony, RTM are a much darker and more foreboding prospect.

A motorik stampede of a song In The Middle is an ode to lust and the carnal acts where Anderson sings of the immediacy of desire.

The video looks at this paradigm, a ritual essay on the bright lights of the flesh and the darkness that can surround such things.

The single’s exclusive 2 b-sides feature Jen Macro (Hurtling, MBV, Graham Coxon, Charlotte Hatherley) on guitar, and were recorded at Brixton Hill Studios with Nick Howiantz.
