Live Review: Zuzu

Zuzu The Bodega, Nottingham, 1st March 2020 Words and Photos by Gary Lambert Sunday night in Nottingham has a curious vibe.  It is as busy as you would expect a city centre to be at that time, but with a genteel politeness.  I’ll be honest it confused me more than the one-way system.  But I … Continue reading

The 1975 M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool, 26th February 2020 Words and Photos by Lucy McLachlan Up until around two years ago, I had never listened to The 1975.

Live Review: King Nun – Liverpool

King Nun Sound, Liverpool, 18th February 2020 Words and Photos by Gary Lambert On the Monday night, King Nun cancelled their show in Birmingham due to the ill health of singer, Theo.  This meant that I put King Nun tweets on notify for a day because I was desperate for this show to go ahead. … Continue reading

Live Review: Psycho Comedy – Liverpool

Psycho Comedy Phase One, Liverpool, 15th February 2020 Words and Photos by Gary Lambert If there was any doubt of the love and support that Psycho Comedy receive, it was physically manifested when walking into Phase One early for their album launch and seeing the venue already packed.

Live Review: HMLTD – Liverpool

HMLTD Arts Club, Liverpool, 13th February 2020 Words and Photos by Lucy McLachlan Last time I saw HMLTD it was the end of 2018 and they blew the roof off The Ritz in Manchester even though they were only cast as a support act.  Taking over the stage in various shades of leather, neon and … Continue reading
