LIVE REVIEW: Wyldest

Wyldest Grand Central Hall, Liverpool, 22 May 2021 Words and Photos by Gary Lambert Have you been to any social distanced gigs?  I can understand why people don’t go to them.  They are quiet, sensible affairs a lot of time.  It is difficult for an artist to build a connection with those in the room.  There is a flipside … Continue reading

Just Watch: Projector – Zero

Projector Zero Words: Nick Jaques A snarling swaggering piece of punk rock from Brighton three-piece PROJECTOR.

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: Bloxx – Everything I’ve Ever Learned

Bloxx Everything I’ve Ever Learned Words: Gary Lambert 13Releasing a debut album in 2020 was a bit of a cursed move, but rather than sit around waiting for the real-life restart, Bloxx have got busy with a new release.  And it’s a cracker – and shows how much Bloxx have progressed as a band since … Continue reading
