Gojira @ O2 Academy Birmingham, 29 June 2019

The between-album tour is a funny old thing – standing separate from the usual purposes of touring, i.e. new album promotion, Gojira affixes an excitable grin and proclaims “We’re baaaaack! …for some reason!” Only the deathliest dullards would have an issue with this, obviously, as such tours are never to be expected and are a pleasant […]

Faith No More @ The Roundhouse, London,18th June 2015

Faith No More have been toying with us since their ‘second coming’ in 2009, playing the odd date here and there, and this vein continues as tonight’s gig is one of only four  played in the UK as part of their current world tour (the others being Glasgow and the Download Festival). Tonight’s gig sold […]

Architects + Rolo Tomassi + Stray From The Path @ Wolverhampton Slade Rooms – 16th April 2012

Three unique but very great bands were in a very small building this evening here at the Wolverhampton Slade Rooms. Architects were here for what turned out to be a special night, guitarist Tim Hillier-Brook has announced that he will part ways with the English metalcore band after their Groezrock slot later on this year […]

Rolo Tomassi + Shapes + Soni-Quella @ Flapper & Firkin – 20th January 2010

So here we are again exploring Mathcore in Birmingham. This has become a common occurrence when invited to a gig with our photographer friend Mark. The usual plan of attack is either myself or Kel does the dancing or watches from a far and Mark devotes his time capturing the performers in their raw form. […]

Gallows + Every Time I Die + Rolo Tomassi @ Birmingham Academy – 16th May 2009

It’s a little quiet as Rolo Tomassi come on stage, and it seems that the majority of the audience that are here so early have come from school, not work. Which is a real shame, as a band like Rolo are really wasted on these kids, with epic soundscapes, insanely technical guitar work, brutal screaming, […]

The Bronx + Fucked Up + Rolo Tomassi @ Birmingham Academy 2 – 6th March 2009

The final date of the “Shred Yr Face 2” Tour sees The Bronx being supported by Fucked Up and Rolo Tomassi, upstairs at the “will-it-ever-be-rebranded” O2 Academy. It’s cold outside, so lets hope the bands warm me up… And they do – first up is Sheffield’s Rolo Tomassi. Wow! I’ve only ever heard sounds like […]

Rolo Tomassi + Mirror! Mirror! + Your Biggest Fanclub @ Birmingham Barfly – 24th September 2008

Your Biggest Fanclub are a trio dealing in quite catchy indie rock who reminded me of The Wombats or a lighter version of We Are Scientists as much as anything, although if you don’t like those bands then ignore the comparison. Suffice to say they were decent, hail from Wolverhampton and would be worth your […]
