Justin Currie @ The Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton, 30 May 2017

Justin Currie

  When you attend a Justin Currie performance, there is a feeling that you are meeting your best friend for a drink, and a chat, to reminisce about old times, previous girlfriends, heartbreak, love and laughter.  This is perfectly exemplified by set opener ‘Always the Last to Know’, which Justin plays with just acoustic guitar, […]

Birmingham Live’s Chris went to find out what Battle Beast would bring to a cool spring evening in Wolverhampton. Tonight we have an array of talent from around the world, the first and were performing as I arrived, a Japanese trio named GYZE.  What is immediately noticeable is the large drum set on stage, centre […]

Following a recent support tour with Sundara Karma, Freak now find themselves opening for indie rockers Inheaven at the Wolverhampton Slade Rooms. Fronted by Connar Ridd, the band do a great job of engaging and involving the young crowd before them. Although that didn’t take much. This crowd were like a school trip after bags […]

Inglorious @ Wulfrun Hall, Wolverhampton, 30th November, 2016

It has been quite a year for Inglorious, who released their eponymous debut album in February through Frontiers Music. Having received critical acclaim, the Planet Rock favourites have also toured throughout the year as Nathan James confirms “we’ve played here three times this year”, four in the area if you count the Robin gig. They’ve also […]

Terrorvision + Tax the Heat @ Wulfrun Hall, Wolverhampton, 23rd November, 2016

I’m going to admit something now that may come as a shock to some people. I actually like a bit of classic rock. It’s a kind of guilty pleasure for me. I try to keep it a secret but when you’re in the car and listening to Radio 2 (okay, so that’s two guilty pleasures) […]

The Vapors @ The Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton, 19th November, 2016

The Vapors, some would have you believe were/are Punk. Some would describe them as New Wave. Some Mod-esque, Jam-esque or any other number of similar-esques. Me however, I’ll just say that they were/are a power-pop band in the same mould as those fantastic bands The Chords, Rudi and my personal faves, The Moondogs. Want to […]

Performing fun riff led pop songs to an ever growing audience, the band do well to be engaging […]

Saxon + Fastway + Girlschool @ Wulfrun Hall, Wolverhampton, 6th November, 2016

  The show started earlier than advertised and I was delighted by how full it was for the supports.  This shows what a great line up we have tonight and confirmed everyone was here to see Girlschool as much as Saxon. After forming 38 years ago (older than I am) it’s a pleasure to see […]

Coal Chamber + SOIL + The Defiled + DOPE @ Wulfrun Hall, Wolverhampton, 29th May 2015

It’s not often you get value for money these days but tonight for a mere £20 we have four, yes four bands, almost a mini-festival. This does of course mean it’s an early start, and for some the opening act, DOPE are missed. Formed in Illinois in 1997, they have released five albums to date, […]
