The Blinders @ The Sunflower Lounge,16 February 2018

When you are a lion on stage and things go wrong, it is impossible to turn into a mouse.  By that I mean, if your onstage persona is a straightforward, nice mousy guy and your guitar stops working, you can have a casual chat with the audience, laugh about it, pick up a working guitar […]

Tom Grennan @ The Sunflower Lounge, 8th February, 2017

It seems that pop is slowly turning soulful. A trend has taken over the commercial radio world in the last few years in which we see bluesy soulful singers getting as much air time as pop princesses.

Half Man Half Biscuit @ The Robin 2, Bilston, 2nd February, 2017
