Title track ‘Who Do You Trust,’ together with ‘Renegade Music’ and ‘Not The Only One’ teased what turned out to be an unexpected album, presenting a fresh mix of weirdly enthusiastic […]

Patent Pending + Suburban Legends + Mario & The Brick Breakers + The Hype Theory @ The Institute – 17th October 2014

A fairly last minute change to the venue opening time meant I arrived at The Institute, Birmingham to an already packed out room that was quite clearly enjoying the first band of the night – The Hype Theory.  Although I didn’t manage to catch all of The Hype Theory I did see enough to know […]

Gary Numan @ Wulfrun Hall, Wolverhampton – Tuesday 19th November 2013

Gary Numan closes his hugely successful Splinter tour tonight in Wolverhampton. The venue is packed out with different generations of Numan fans. The critically aclaimed new album has given Numan his first top 20 album chart spot since the Warriors album in 1983, and definitely one of his best in a long time.

Kodaline @ The Institute, Birmingham – Friday 8th November 2013

The queue stretched far around the corner from the doors of the HMV Institute half an hour before they opened. A sign of the great anticipation of what was to come, as Dublin’s band of 2013 came into town. This was a crowd of people out to love every minute of what was about to […]

Wiz Khalifa @ O2 Academy, Birmingham – Saturday 28th September 2013

It was so smoky in the Birmingham O2 Academy tonight that I could barely see the support for the evening, Trinidad James but I could definitely hear him.

Soundgarden + Graveyard @ O2 Academy, Birmingham – Saturday 14th September 2013

Tonight it’s rammed in Birmingham’s 02 Academy as fans flock in to see one of the giants of grunge, the recently reformed Soundgarden. And as I arrive, Swedish rockers Graveyard are giving it a bit of heavy bluesy-rock, smattered with psychedelic riffs. Joakim Nilsson (guitar and vocals), Jonatan Larocca-Ramm (guitar and vocals) Rikard Edlund (bass) and […]

Leann Rimes @ Symphony Hall, Birmingham – Saturday 14th September 2013

I can see why the gig was at Symphony Hall tonight as Leann Rimes, who’s released 14 albums and sold 37 million records, is a legend. But tonight (as Leann put it) we were in her “front room.” And being as we were in the 31 year old’s front room, we were very reserved and […]

B52s @ O2 Academy, Birmingham – Thursday 15th August 2013

The B52s have now been in the music business for 30-odd years and have a fine reputation as a dynamic and thoroughly entertaining live band. Tonight they treat the packed O2 to a fun musical romp through their long career, focusing on their hit singles. But first, it turns out we have a bit of […]
