Dandy Warhols 25th Anniversary Tour.

One thing for certain is The Dandy Warhols are a tight unit, they play and deliver in their own way, certainly tonight’s show was full of nostalgia for those who have avidly supported them over the years, what triumphed in the depth of albums and singles, was not matched by the performance.

New Music- White Lies – ‘Five’

More little White Lies…… For over a decade, White Lies have been making great, solid music. Yet for some reason or another, haven’t quite got the attention there music deserves. Nevertheless, they are here with their fifth studio album, simply called Five. The album starts in earnest with Time To Give. A very synth driven song, as you might expect from the band in the later years, and it’s a conversation in a… Keep Reading

The Faim – Birmingham o2 Academy3, 06.02.19

“We’re saints of the sinners, and we’re coming for you” With their bop-filled tunes and memorable lyrics, Australian band The Faim brought a new lease of life to Birmingham’s o2 Academy3, with Halflives and Chapel as their touring support. The 250-cap room had pretty much filled out by the time Halflives had entered the stage, and just as well as this was not a set to be missed. As each… Keep Reading

Don Broco, Neck Deep And Issues Storm Victoria Warehouse.

Don Broco plus very special guests play two nights at Victoria Warehouse. Don Broco, along with Welsh pop-punkers, Neck Deep, and Atlanta-based band, Issues, play two sold out nights in Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse. I don’t think I have been able to review/shoot a band at the warehouse without there being some kind of issue with my pass. I was looking forward to catching Issues, but instead waited for around an… Keep Reading

Yngwie Malmsteen To Release New Album ‘Blue Lightning’ On March 29th Via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group

Yngwie Malmsteen will release Blue Lightning globally on March 29th via Mascot Records / Mascot Label Group.   To call Yngwie Malmsteen a ‘maestro’ or ‘virtuoso’ is to state the obvious. But such terms don’t do sufficient justice to either his talent or impact. There are innumerable guitarists who have copied a small part of the vast musical spectrum that defines him, but nobody comes close to achieving what he has over a period of nearly four decades. This… Keep Reading

Jerry Williams Live At Jimmy’s.

Jerry Williams kicked off her tour in Manchester last night I first heard of Jerry Williams whilst reviewing Neighbourhood Weekender 2018, and since then I have been determined to catch her at a concert, so was pleased when I heard she was playing Jimmy’s. The night was opened by two talented acts, Maddy Storm and Wild Front, and they started the night off well, and the venue was packed before… Keep Reading

Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls perform to a sold out Victoria Warehouse.

Frank Turner and US pals, Jimmy Eat World, play to a sold out Victoria Warehouse. Jimmy Eat World and Frank Turner are two names I didn’t think I’d see on a bill together. I done know why, but something about that jarred for me. Stylistically, there have been pairings that are much less similar than Jimmy and Frank Turner, but having grown up with Jimmy in the ‘emo’ publications, and… Keep Reading
