Punk Rock has not been a fav or mine, yet I never turn down an opportunity to hear something new.
An email was sent to my inbox requesting I give a listen to a band known as “The Velocity Raptors”. My first thought, another screaming “meme” group, but what the heck lets listen.
I must admit, I was not expecting an uplifting instrumental compilation. The band combined electric sounds that allow the brain waves to dance a pulsey beat. “Rather Nice to Listen To”
After listing to the tracks of the disography title “I, Donna” I wanted a little more. So I clicked over to “The Chuppe Life”. This 6 track digital album was filled with unique instrumentals. Not to fast, Not to slow, and at 7am in the morning did not put my brain in crash mode.
I give this group a thumbs up and recommend you giving them an ear or two.

A quick note about the band
”The Velocity Raptors are the instrumental brain child of Manchester’s own, Sean Buckley. The Raptors are valiantly fighting post rock seriousness through sprightly, punk rock inspired 2 minute instrumental pop songs. Forgotten are the damp, laboured structures of the instrumental genre and in their stead are brazen, shamelessly fun guitar licks and melodies for the less discerning music critic.”
