The 1975 Manchester Apollo

An Evening of Neon Lights, Extra Loud Screams Cool Tunes And Girls… Lots of Girls…. Being a 1975 first timer I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect in all honesty. So what did I know before the fact? 2 number 1 albums; their self titled 2013 debut album “The 1975” and their 2nd, shorter titled “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It“.… Keep Reading


Gilby Clarke – Viften, Rødovre, Denmark

It’s Only Rock’n’Roll – but I certainly liked it When Gilby Clarke ended his three-year venture with Guns’n’Rose, he was just known as “the new guy in G’n’R”. This evening, he proved, once again, that he can certainly hold his own. I’m pretty sure that Gilby is getting tired of talking about Guns’n’Roses, and how he went from being in one of the biggest bands on earth, to being unemployed the next… Keep Reading


Blossoms Review from Electric, Brixton, London

Your New Favourite Band You don’t know it yet but Blossoms are going to be your new favourite band, they shine through the current dredge of pop mire like a blinding light in the fog, mixing both catchy tunes with swagger and belief in equal measure. Tonight we are at Electric in Brixton. A smallish theatre style venue which has the tiniest upstairs seating area for what looks like one… Keep Reading


Jake Bugg Review from Electric, Brixton, London

When a young man with a guitar steps up to the mic and sings from the heart “I’m just a poor boy from Nottingham, I had my dreams but in this world they’re gone, Oh I’m so lonesome on my one” a few hundred twentysomething females at the front of the Electric in Brixton sing along word for word, hoping to become his ‘two’. This track was only released just… Keep Reading


Biters + Libido Overdrive, High Voltage, Copenhagen

High Voltage Rock Club, Copenhagen, Denmark If you have ever visited the High Voltage Rock Club in Copenhagen, then you know the place is just like your old lady. It has intimacy and presence, but at the same can be the sleaziest seducer around. This night was no different, and Biters from Atlanta, USA, had taken a small detour from the 2016 Kerrang Winter Tour and its big stages, and paid my favourite… Keep Reading


The Courteeners Kentish Town Forum 3rd March 2016

The Courteeners Kentish Town Forum | 3rd March 2016 The Courteeners – What Took You So Long?  It was back in December when the Shepherds Bush Empire in London announced it had to close its doors for urgent renovation works as they had found a structural fault. The Courteeners were due to play the venue that night and the message was so late that some fans turned up to the… Keep Reading

The Vryll Society

The Vryll Society Albert Hall, 27th Feb 2016

Manchester is buzzing with anticipation… The Vryll Society Blossoms are playing their biggest headline gig in their hometown to date, after a succession of triumphs. They are definitely a cool band and very much on everyone’s lips. I’m stressing though,  as I try to park round the back of the Albert Hall, arriving as the support band The Vryll Society are due onstage. No way am I missing these lot.… Keep Reading

The Magic Band at The Kazimier, Liverpool

Photography & review by Liz Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band were one of the most unique acts of the 20th Century. Between 1966 and 1982 they released various albums that not only spanned and fused a plethora of genres, but helped to transcend how art, poetry and music could be used. Like an audio Picasso, or a ‘Beat’ Magritte, The Magic Band mashed the crazy free jazz of Ornette… Keep Reading


Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia

Photography & Review by: Liz Where to start? This is possibly one of the best, most unique and intimate festivals you’re ever going to experience in an environment very much its own.

This festival doesn’t discriminate between young and old;… Keep Reading
