Matthew Loughlin-Day Words and Photos by Gary Lambert So what did you do to stave off the boredom of Lockdown?  Well I managed to complete the Couch to 5K app which I was pretty pleased with, but Matthew Loughlin-Day of The Shipbuilders managed to complete a much larger task.  He wrote an album during that … Continue reading

Interview: Gen and The Degenerates

Gen and The Degenerates Words and Photos by Gary Lambert Live photography by Aimee Asbury-Luck One of the biggest difficulties I have in doing the work I love with Popped Music is that some of the bands I want to talk about I have also worked closely with personally.  It makes me worry that I … Continue reading

Interview: Jamie Webster

Jamie Webster Words and Photos by Gary Lambert One of the best things about the face to face interviews we do at Popped Music is that you get to see close up the passion that people have for music.  Not just the music they have created in the studio, but the music that inspires them, … Continue reading

The Mysterines Words & Photos: Gary Lambert A sunny January day walking around Liverpool’s historical Albert Dock taking a few photographs is pretty much a perfect day for me.  When you’re accompanied by one of Britain’s most exciting and in demand bands removes all doubt and makes it possible for Lou Reed to soundtrack my … Continue reading

Interview: Clean Cut Kid

Clean Cut Kid Words by Gary Lambert Photos by Gary Lambert Clean Cut Kid are a band who we have been with from the very start, so it was apt that we were able to catch up with them shortly after they had finished their afternoon headliner slot at Liverpool Sound City.

Interview: Marsicans

Marsicans Words: Sammy Sadler Photography: Callum Robinson There are three things I’ve learned about catching up with Marsicans.

JUST LISTEN: Saint Charles – See Straight

Saint Charles – See Straight Words: Sammy Sadler I’ve had my eye on Saint Charles for a little while now, actually since I reviewed his EP back in August, and i’ve been hooked on his summery melodies to this day.

SXSW With: Boy Azooga

Boy Azooga Words and Photos: Elena Katrina Admittedly, I’d only heard a handful of Boy Azooga tracks prior to SXSW but enough to know that he was a key part of my coverage for 2019, and he was certainly jostling for my attention amongst a seriously strong UK thing of acts travelling over this year. … Continue reading
