CD Review – New Zero God – Under The Influence Of Captain Pan Ikatac


Greek rockers New Zero God are back with another blistering set of tracks full of darkness, atmosphere, and hard and heavy rock and roll!

‘Hell bent on me to lose’ is a racy and raw garage rock tune sounding somewhere between Spit Endz and the Angels. The track is spewing out with energy with a rough and ready atmosphere all the while rocking out with high intensity.

‘Under the radar’ lifts the intensity another notch with a chaotic industrial soundscape backing up the deep dark “Nick Cave-esq” vocals.

Radio Newsbeat



I recently upgraded my Internet Radio to a Roberts 93i stream Internet Radio.  The first model I got had a loose aerial and although the Internet radio was excellent, with good tone, which was also adjustable, the FM and DAB reception was poor.  I have since got a replacement and I am happy to report that FM and Dab work a treat. I live in the Thames Valley and was surprised recently when re-scanning the Dab radio channels, it picked up a London multiplex.  All of the stations worked but the radio glitches understandably.
