LIVE REVIEW: DEAD POET SOCIETY

Dead Poet Society Future Yard, Birkenhead, 31 August 2021 Words and Photos by Gary Lambert One of the biggest losses to gig going at the moment is the difficulty that foreign acts have to come to our shores to tour.  So many festival slots have been altered as bands and their teams have found it impossible … Continue reading

JUST LISTEN: RED RUM CLUB – VIBRATE

Red Rum Club Vibrate Words by Gary Lambert Fans of Red Rum Club wore t-shirts emblazoned with Scouse Americana during their Matador era, and whilst the Red Rum Club sound has evolved and grown from those days, the American musical motif still applies.

JUST LISTEN: KATY ALEX – SUCKER FOR LOVE

JUST LISTEN: ZUZU – MY OLD LIFE

Zuzu My Old Life Words by Gary Lambert Wow! is the first thing that comes to mind after listening to Zuzu‘s latest single from her forthcoming debut album, Queensway Tunnel.

Just Watch: Projector – Zero

Projector Zero Words: Nick Jaques A snarling swaggering piece of punk rock from Brighton three-piece PROJECTOR. Reminiscent of the more distortive moments of classic Sonic Youth and they possess the essential ingredients of the underground DIY punk-rock scene. Zero also has a neat melodic and infectious groove which gives it more appeal to the listener, … Continue reading

Live Review: Blossoms – Sefton Park Pilot

Blossoms Sefton Park, Liverpool, 1 May 2021 Words by Gary Lambert In my life I’ve seen Bowie headline Glastonbury; McCartney play Helter Skelter live for the first time; and forgotten the amount of bands I’ve seen in half-filled back rooms go on to bigger and better things; but I’ve never been to a gig this … Continue reading

Just Listen: Sports Team – Happy (God’s Own Country)

Sports Team Happy (God’s Own Country) Words: Amy Butcher I mean, what can I say about Sports Team that’s not already been said?

Interview Exclusive: The Pale White

The Pale White Words: Daniel Burton and Elena Katrina It’s every band’s dream to release an album, no, probably just to know you are going to make one.

Just Watch: Cassia – Right There

Cassia Right There Words: Amy Butcher Spinning a negative feeling into an upbeat, indie pop song, Cassia have given us an addictive new single in ‘Right There’.

Just Watch: Bandicoot – Fuzzy

Bandicoot Fuzzy Words: Amy Butcher If ever there was a track to launch you right into the rockabilly era, it’s ‘Fuzzy’ by Bandicoot.

Just Listen: George Cosby – Lost On You

George Cosby Lost On You Words: Elena Katrina Sometimes you press play on a tack and you’re greeted with something so delightful, that something in your physicality changes for a while.

Just Listen: Ten Tonnes – Everything You Got

Ten Tonnes Everything You Got Words: Amy Butcher Having been a fan of Ten Tonnes for a good few years now, I’ve really enjoyed seeing what the singer/songwriter has produced musically.

Just Watch: Tigress – Disconnect

Tigress Disconnect Words: Nick Jacques Tigress are the best thing to come out of Chelmsford since, err, Penny Lancaster, and their energetic gutsy display on show here is proof of that.
