You Me At Six, Keele University Ballroom

You Me At Six take to Keele University’s Ballroom Stage for their first show of 2018. Fresh from dropping two new tracks from their new album, ‘VI’, You Me At Six smash a very sweaty Download warm-up show. I’ve been with You Me At Six from their ‘Take Off Your Colours’ era, right through to the present day, so when I heard about a 1,100 cap show, I was there.… Keep Reading

Go Get An LCD Soundsystem Fix ASAP

I don’t mind saying that I’ve only recently started listening to LCD Soundsystem and I also must confess that I owe that privilege to none other than Mr. Clint Boon after catching one of their tracks on his show. Marcus Lambkin aka Shit Robot, kicked of proceedings with some absolute stonking tunes that wouldn’t have gone a miss in the Ibizian Superclubs such as Space and CD-10. Marcus truly set… Keep Reading

The Blinders Live at Gorilla, Manchester

A bunch of wild Blinders fans in a small venue made for an epic night After completing their debut headline tour, The Blinders revisited Manchester for those who missed out  At 6.30 sharp, the doors to Gorilla swung open, and the crowd began to slowly pile into the venue, and by the time the support act, Afghan Sand Gang, came on stage, the venue was ready to burst. After ASG’s… Keep Reading

The Rolling Stones, Old Trafford, Manchester

ITS ONLY ROCK AND ROLL BUT I LIKE IT ! I’ve seen The Rolling Stones twice before, in 1976 at Bingley Hall Stafford when they were good and again in 1990 at Manchester City’s old ground Maine Road when they were pretty average. Today I could to photograph one of my hero’s Patti Smith who’s career has been heavily influenced by The Rolling Stones, in particular Keith Richard OR I… Keep Reading

Camden Rocks Kicks Arse

Saturday: Camden Rocks is London’s premier rock festival in London’s premier rock location. On Friday I photographed Blossoms, a band so vanilla that prolonged exposure carries risk of poisoning. Quite why yesterday’s All Points East Festival audience of young people were going crazy over a band whose most exciting crowd interaction was: “Hello, we’re Blossoms from Stockport” was, and is, beyond me. Today however, I’m at Camden Rocks – over… Keep Reading

Rolling Stones, Coventry Ricoh Arena – No Filter, No Filler!

It’s only Rock n Roll and I love it As a music reviewer all you can really ask of yourself is that you keep an open mind and be honest. I’m going to be upfront with you now, this was never going to happen last night. It was the Rolling frikkin Stones, man. Mick could have come on stage shouted a few “is everyone doing alriiiiight?’, clapped a bit, made… Keep Reading

LIVE REVIEW: Monster Magnet, Gorilla, Manchester

It was 23 degrees on the streets of Manchester this evening, but inside Gorilla it feels like 123 degrees as the venue is packed to the rafters for American rock band Monster Magnet. Originally hailing from New Jersey Monster Magnet have been around in various forms since 1989 when they were formed by Dave Waldorf and, since then the band have had varying amounts of success with both singles and… Keep Reading

Neighbourhood Weekender 2018 Saturday

The Bar is firmly set and this festival is set to grow. From the outset the Neighbourhood weekender lay down a bold statement of intent for this fledgling festival. Firstly, the line-up over the two days was awesome, set over three stages, the array of artists for the Saturday was immense. The 3rd stage named after Warrington’s very own Viola Beach, was a nice touch and a very poignant touch… Keep Reading

Throwback Thursday – ‘Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace’

For the final week, we go back to Foo Fighters, and their 2007 album Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace allowed fans to see a more intimate side of the band Although we included Foo Fighters last month, it’s near impossible to not mention this band more than once, especially an album which really showcased the talent of the entire band. ‘Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace’ (ESPG for short) really let… Keep Reading

Slam Dunk Festival 2018

For many, Slam Dunk represents the purest form of music based excitement; the anticipation of line up announcements, the experience of so many staple bands under one roof and even the surreal moments of having your favourite band members roaming the venue like its some kind of pop-punk… Keep Reading

The Pagans Are Aliiiiiiiiiive!!

Black Country boys raise the roof at Birmingham’s O2 Academy Whilst visiting the geographical heart of England, a friend suggested I hot-footed it to the O2 Academy to watch The Pagans – a local band they had discovered at the recent Musicians Against Homelessness  ‘Royal Bedding Day’ event. Playing at the album launch of Enemo J, a group who describe their own style as ‘SCREAMY SHOUTY RARRAR’, I’ll be honest,… Keep Reading

Neighbourhood Weekender (Sunday)

3 stages, 2 days, 1 amazing lineup The second day of this festival did not disappoint, and the weather held off too. From the screeching tones of WhenYoung, to the political voicings of The Blinders, and the laid back, yet crowd-pleasingly brilliant Noel Gallagher, day two of Neighbourhood Weekender delivered some truly wonderful talent to the masses. The festival had everything it needed to be a spectacular day, from amazing… Keep Reading

Northern Invasion Festival, Somerset Wisconsin

After the dust settles, all we are left with is our memories. It’s been almost two weeks since Northern Invasion closed out its 4th year. It was my first year in attendance and it has taken me awhile to really formulate into words what was such a great experience. I went into this weekend with only knowing a handful of the artists. I checked out everyone ahead of time and… Keep Reading

BritRock Must Be Destroyed Tour, Leeds 02 Academy 2018

Its Thursday, 5:30 and there is no sign of crackerjack in Leeds, but instead it is Britrock time. Ahh… Britrock that anti-Britpop movement that really was not a movement at all, but a collection of good old rock and roll bands that turned the amps up louder than their chart-topping cousins. First-up Dodgy. Not quite in the same, brash, balls to the wall vain as the others on the bill… Keep Reading

EXCLUSIVE: North by Northwich Charlatans Takeover

Flick of the Finger had exclusive access to the Charlatans Soundcheck where the band were warming up to play to a Memorial Court crowd. Having never seen The Charlatans play live before it was quite the special one for me personally as I snapped away, taking pics as the lads warming up, for their Friday night show. (18th May 2018) It’s been a fantastic week thus far with lots more… Keep Reading

There can’t be many people left in… Keep Reading

Playing at the Charlatans North by Northwich takeover and kicking the set off with The Verve’s ‘The Rolling People’, and joined by wizarding guitarist, Thomas Twemlow, the pair played classics from The Smiths, 10cc and New Order. As well as Johnsons… Keep Reading

Wilko Johnson, Manchester Academy

I first saw Wilko Johnson playing with Dr Feelgood in a marquee at the Uppermill Festival back in the late seventies. Then again with his group The Solid Senders at the now famous Mayflower Club in Belle Vue Manchester. He then disappeared off my radar somewhat until his much publicised cancer and then almost Lazarus like recovery. A highly successful album with Roger Daltrey followed, “Going Back Home”, and then… Keep Reading
