ALBUM REVIEW: Peter Doherty ‘Hamburg Demonstrations’

in Latest Music by

Worth the wait: Peter Doherty returns with his new release “Hamburg Demonstrations” Some things are worth waiting for, and this certainly rings true for Peter Doherty’s new album, his first solo release since 2009’s Grace/Wasteland. First announced on September 27th, the new album was recorded, mixed and produced by Johann Scheerer at Clouds Hill Recordings in Hamburg, Germany. In light of Doherty’s tumultuous past, his fans have by no means had an easy ride. And yet those who have stayed true to him through all the years will not be disappointed by “Hamburg Demonstrations”, a harmonious composition of tracks that humour, provoke…

NEW MUSIC: Liines ‘Disappear / Be Here’

in Latest Music by

What is better than a good single? Two good singles, of course, thanks to post-punk band LIINES. The Manchester-based female band are releasing their new double A-side, ‘Disappear’ / ‘Be Here’, which follows hot on the heels of previously well-received track ‘Never There’. Focusing on the first offering, ‘Disappear’, it’s clear to understand why this trio are drowning in waves of praise. Zoe McVeigh’s vocals are crystal-clear and sharp, which is not always the case with bands of this ilk, so being able to hear her voice sore above the music is a breath of fresh air. The bass playing…

MUSIC REVIEW: Kings of Leon ‘Waste A Moment’

in Latest Music by

Is guitar-based music about to be given a booster injection by the Tennessee-based rockers? The Kings of Leon return with their new single ‘Waste A Moment’, which is taken from their highly-anticipated upcoming album, which is due out in October. There was once a time when new music from the American rockers meant something, but unfortunately, this song is evidence of how to waste a moment – three minutes of them to be precise. The track misses everything that you would expect from the return of a successful rock band. It simply feels lacking, as though they’ve been forced to…

Savannah Release New Single ‘Jodie’

in Latest Music by

‘We are the mods! We are the mods!’ This may be a chant from the film Quadropehnia…. …but it would feel right at home sung at a live performance by Savannah, whose new single, ‘Jodie’, is a pumped-up, hands-in-the-air, pure rock ‘n’ roller, just waiting for the mod chant to follow in its wake. The opening guitar riff boasts the grittiness of Nirvana, before settling into a tight swaggering indie-rock number. While it may not come across entirely as an original sound, it gleefully blends several genres together, resulting in one damn fine piece of musicianship from the Telford based…

Dodgy ‘Are You The One’

Dodgy Are You The One

Everybody has a soft spot for Dodgy. You may fondly remember them as the guys who had a smash hit in the late ’90’s called Good Enough, which sadly, is where the memories of them will no doubt end. Four years on, after reuniting more than a decade ago in 2012, the band are once again back with a brand new single, Are You The One, which is lifted from their forthcoming fifth album, due out in September. With British summertime in full flow, the band has cleverly released a track that could easily be played as enjoyable feel-good background…

EXCLUSIVE: Adam Ant, York Barbican

in Live Reviews by

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 admitted it or not! In my hometown of York, Adam Ant is back to relive that nostalgic time and it seems like the audience is made up of the same…

Kula Shaker Live at Wilton’s Music Hall, London

in Live Reviews by

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 and years of neglect. Quite fitting that a band that have equally been through some troubled history in the last 20 years (even including some unfortunate references to Nazis) are…

New Music: Band of Skulls, By Default

in Latest Music by

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. I love a band that aren’t afraid to mix it up while wearing their influences on their sleeves, it keeps life interesting, while never taking you too far out of your comfort zone. For me, Band of Skulls(BOS) are one such groups. The trio are equally comfortable ripping off The White Stripes one minute, then switching over to beautiful haunting melodies straight from the late 60’s the next.…
