Rising Stars Presented by Time Out Magazine

Nestling just south of Regents Park, 229 The Venue was a new one to me. It turned out it was easy to find, provided you could stagger out of Great Portland Street tube – it’s literally across the road. Tonight it found itself host to the latest in a series of Time Out magazine sponsored events promoting the very best the capital has to offer in currently unsigned talent. From… Keep Reading

Manic Street Preachers, Live At The Royal Albert Hall

Last summer, I saw the Manic Street Preachers perform their 1994 album ‘The Holy Bible’ in full. It was a lyrically dark, brooding record; a record that offered a window into the mind of the Manics’ lyricist Richey Edwards, a mind that at the time was contending with alcohol abuse, depression, self-harm and Anorexia Nervosa. Within 6 months of its release, Edwards had disappeared. The gig last year had a… Keep Reading

It’s been quite a year for London three-piece Bones, supporting Skunk Anansie and PVRIS on their UK and European tours, but on Thursday (12/5/16) they returned to their roots and put on an intimate sold-out show for their fans, both old and new, at The Old Blue Last in Shoreditch. I first saw Bones at the end of 2014, when they opened for the debut gig for Bl=ndfolds (made up… Keep Reading

Rob Zombie & Disturbed Live at Ascend Amphitheater Nashville

When you think of Nashville, Tennessee you usually think of country music and cowboy boots. So when you are walking across the Tennessee River on a pedestrian bridge with a horde of Zombies that are so Disturbed they look like they could Pop Evil out of every orifice of their body, you start to wonder if a league of un-dead have been unleashed on the city. When I reach the… Keep Reading

The Australian trio Wolfmother has been with us since their debut in 2006, when they released their self-titled album.

We Are Scientists, O2 Institute

We Are Scientists are a band that I’ve always heard of but had never checked out until I headed down to their show at Birmingham’s O2 Institute on 27th April to see just what they are all about. We Are Scientists support act was The Alibi, who were the highlight of the night for me. Hailing from Dartford, South London, and this bunch of lads really impressed me with their whole… Keep Reading

YES, Manchester 02 Apollo

The determination and drive to keep performing their dynamic and captivating music is something Yes excel at. There’s something amazing to be said for a a band who’s career spans nearly five decades and can still perform such complicated arrangements. With members that have come and gone, it seems to have only aided in creating an incomparable metamorphosis of their musical sound. It has earned them a lot of hype… Keep Reading

Adam French, St Stephens Church

Getting out of beer stained venues, and performing in the sacred surroundings of the nations church’s is nothing new. The likes of Elbow have played Manchester Catherdral and London’s Union Chapel has a long history of non-classical performances. But listening to tonights bands soundcheck in the big reverberating space of St Stephens Church, the late afternoon sun streaming through the stained glass, it’s a little tricky to relate to the… Keep Reading

EXCLUSIVE: Shakey Graves, Gorilla

If the sign of a great band is that its whole is greater than the sum of its sonic parts, then how the hell Alejandro Rose-Garcia managed to raise such a ruckus at Gorilla recently is beyond me. Review by Matt Eastham Going by the joke Indian Guide name of Shakey Graves, this one man folk/blues/Americana juggernaut is something of a cult hero in his native Texas where the mayor… Keep Reading

Pushing Daisy, Lygten Station, Apr. 16

Pushing Daisy – Dreamy and huge hard rock sound – a top-notch Danish band: The Copenhagen quartet Pushing Daisy, plays hard rock like Velvet Revolver and Alice In Chains likes to do. The soundscape is huge and dreamy, and the distorted bass was prominent but never too much.  Here we’ve got a band that is a bit older, a bit more established and a bit larger fanbase. They are not as… Keep Reading

JFK Jr. – Lygten Station, Copenhagen, Apr.16

Surprising road-worthy hard Rock’n’Roll from a humble band JFK Jr. is a quartet from Copenhagen, and if you like Pixies, Foo Fighters and similar bands, you’re gonna like these guys. Soundwise we’re in early Foo Fighters territory. The first band of the night, JFK Jr., got the fire going in this small Copenhagen venue. Audience turnup was sparse, unfortunately, as this was still early in the night, but seemingly unaffected by… Keep Reading

Troye Sivan & Astrid S, Birmingham O2 Institute

On Saturday 23rd April, I headed down to the O2 Institute in Birmingham to check out Troye Sivan, and support act Astrid S, for the final show of the UK stretch of his Blue Neighbourhood Tour. As soon as I arrived at the sold out show I could tell just how popular Troye Sivan is, as the end of the queue was not visible, even 30 minutes after the opening… Keep Reading

Strawberry Slaughterhouse, High Voltage

Strawberry Slaughterhouse came out in the mid-90’s, when the grunge wave was at its highest. Cobain had just passed away, and Denmark saw the dawn of iconic bands like Dizzy Mizz Lizzy, Psyked Up Janis, and Strawberry Slaughterhouse. The Straws debuted with their 1994 album “Teenage Torturechamber” followed up by the 1997 release “Suck – And The Art of Surviving Suburbia” and because of how times were back then, everyone… Keep Reading

Wilko Johnson & Joanne Shaw Taylor, The O2 Forum, Kentish Town

This has been a weekend of boyhood heroes. Last night: Jeff Lynne’s ELO at the O2. Tonight: Wilko Johnson at the O2 Forum, Kentish Town. One day, London’s best music venues won’t all be named after an unremarkable mobile phone network. But I digress… I’ve been loving the work of Wilko Johnson ever since, at the age of 14, I saw him on TV demonstrating how he seemingly plays rhythm… Keep Reading
