Julia Holter + Søren Juul @ The Glee Club, Birmingham, 11th November 2015

Julia Holter seems slightly unsure of herself upon pondering as to whether her touring schedule has previously led her to Birmingham. Holter’s tentative address confirms that she believes it to be her first visit to the city, and she is correct, no doubt, much to the dismay of the some of the contingent that have […]

Julian Cope + Fido-X @ The Glee Club, 25th January 2015

The Glee Club was the perfect venue to host Julian Cope’s gig ,as his extensive repertoire of songs is eclipsed by the volume of anecdotes and musings that he loves to share, which made tonight’s show part spoken word and part ‘unplugged’ greatest hits performance.

Smoke Fairies + Sea of Bees @ The Glee Club, 19th January 2011

Sea of Bees, aka Julie Ann Bee ‘Jules’, opened with a gentle, heart and soul on sleeve confessional set of acoustic songs. At times the autobiographical delved towards intense, vulnerable catharsis. Which was exactly her intention. Unsettling for some, embraced by others, as post-gig salutations made evident. Low voltage vignettes for crystal healers maybe, but […]

Ian Broudie + James Walsh + Matthew P @ The Glee Club, Birmingham – 1st December 2009

If an artist is going to tour why co-headline? As excellent as both these gentlemen and their support were on the night it still leaves the questions of why? and what for? If the idea tonight was to give two sets of musicians’ fans just a taster of the others output then it was objective […]
