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. Artists like George Ezra, Tom Odell, and James Arthur are all shining examples of how powerful voices can […]

Seaway + WSTR + The Gospel Youth @ 02 Academy 3, 2nd February, 2017

Pop punk is going strong in the UK at the moment if you weren’t aware. At least that’s the impression you would get upon entering the O2 Academy this evening which is full to the rafters as The Gospel Youth take to the stage. Recently signing to Rise/Velocity Records ahead of their debut album release, […]

Tom Walker @ The Sunflower Lounge, 1st February, 2017

Every music head wants to be at the early discovery of what will become a living legend. I can only imagine those early pub crawlers who crammed into tiny holes to watch the likes of The Beatles and Bowie. The smoky piano bars that brought out the likes of Elton John and Lady Gaga. To […]

The Dillinger Escape Plan + Ho99o9 @ o2 Institute, Sunday 22nd January 2017

  “Don’t Cry Because It’s over; Smile Because It Happened” Sure, it’s a bit of a cheesy, overused quote, but I feel it’s appropriate when talking about the mighty Dillinger Escape Plan. 2016 was a year that was bittersweet for fans of New Jersey’s math-core pioneers, with the band releasing one of the most accomplished […]

Girl Band + Goat Girl @ Hare and Hounds, 22nd January, 2017

Tonight is a sold out gig with many people waiting a year to watch Girl Band after last January’s concert was postponed. Support comes from London’s Goat Girl, a band that opted for the old school journey of gigging rather than an over zealous online presence which paid off with a record deal with Rough […]

The Pretty Reckless @ 02 Institute, 20th January, 2017

  The rock of this generation follows three basic principles for success. Rock pairs 1) brilliant and talented musicianship with 2) live theatrically and 3) a dearly devoted fan base.  The perfected triple threat must be mastered in order to reach pique flawlessness. The Pretty Reckless has in many cases done just that. The band […]

Meshuggah + The Haunted @ 02 Institute, 13th January, 2017

Meshuggah have been on the bleeding edge of extreme metal for thirty years. I’ll let that sink in and then say it again, thirty (three-zero) years. They are one of those rare few bands where almost their entire back catalogue still sounds as fresh now as it did when it was released. When I heard […]

Julia Fordham @ MAC, 16th November, 2016

This is a first for me, as I’ve never been to the MAC before. It’s a venue which covers various events, from children’s activities, to spoken word, to exhibitions and what is meant to be art, that’s if you can call an old table and a spade in a glass case art. They also provide […]

Jack Garratt @ 02 Academy, 15th November, 2016

The super moon was not the only bright celestial being this week. On Tuesday night Jack Garratt played to a sold out O2 Academy in what can only be described as a meteoric explosion. To say that Jack has had astronomic success the past few years would be a gross understatement; leaving studies to become […]

Balaam and The Angel @ 02 Institute, 12th November, 2016

1986 was an important year for me. It was the time I started to attend gigs on a regular basis,to see bands that would remain with me throughout my life. It’s therefore fitting that many of those bands, thirty years on, are still touring. Some are still recording, such as The Mission having just released, […]
