MUSIC REVIEW: Foo Fighters ‘Run’

Since the dawn of the millennium, no band has managed to maintain constant success and longevity like Foo Fighters have. Unlike many of their contemporaries, most of whom either faded into the back pages and footnotes of rock history, or tragically died in their prime, Foo Fighters’ success never seemed fade. Formed in the ashes of Dave Grohl’s Nirvana career, Foo Fighters are arguably modern rock’s most famous act, after… Keep Reading

Muse ‘Dig Down’

As bands get older, they often morph and change their sound, and few bands have done this more than Muse. Muse first burst onto the rock scene in late 90’s, with the release of their early EP’s, and subsequently their first album, ‘Origin of Symmetry’. Despite having a constantly evolving and morphing sound, which arguably has alienated most casual listeners from their later releases, their hardcore following remains loyal, and… Keep Reading

NEW MUSIC: Liines ‘Disappear / Be Here’

What is better than a good single? Two good singles, of course, thanks to post-punk band LIINES.

The opening guitar riff boasts the grittiness of Nirvana, before settling into a tight swaggering indie-rock… Keep Reading

EXCLUSIVE: Adam Ant, York Barbican

Tonight I had several flashbacks to school discos with the punks, rockers, skaboys and new romantics all dutifully dressed up in their tribal costumes, and at some point during those nights ‘Antmusic’ would be played and we’d all kind of enjoy it, even though it wouldn’t be publicly admitted in some of those groups. We all had a copy of the ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ album – whether we… Keep Reading

Kula Shaker Live at Wilton’s Music Hall, London

Wilton’s Music Hall stands proud as one of the oldest remaining music halls in Europe, dating back to the 1850’s and born in the slightly seedier east end of London. The venues history is apparent everywhere you look, in the ancient floorboards, walls, fading decorative paintwork and several metal barley twist columns that still hold up the balcony to this day. It has survived fire, the blitz by the Nazis… Keep Reading

As a reviewer, I usually get the dross, the new bands, the stuff no one else wants. This time however I get one of my favourite bands of the last five years.
