Goat Girl @ Hare and Hounds, 8 May 2018

When a bunch of leftfield Brixton guitar kids like Goat Girl sign the dotted line to a leftfield label like Rough Trade, on the same day that a small majority of Brits sign to go inward looking and insular then you know the universe is dancing the ying and yang jig. They are one of […]

Jeffrey Lewis and Los Bolts @ Hare and Hounds, 12 October, 2017

Every single time that Jeffrey Lewis and one of his bands have been in the same town as myself… I’ve been otherwise engaged, so tonight was the night that I’d finally get to watch him perform his music, poetry-metred lyrical delivery and cartoon presented backdrop.
