Just Listen: The Jagged Skies – Judas

Jagged Skies – Judas Words by Gary Lambert Judas is the debut release of The Jagged Skies, and for an opening salvo  carries some weight.

SXSW With: Fatherson

Fatherson Words and photos: Elena Katrina When I first moved to Liverpool one of the first visiting bands to the city centre who I interviewed was Fatherson.
