BBC Introducing – Harlea, Pizzagirl and Mellah The Lexington, London, 4th December 2018 Words: Megan Berridge  Naturally, I arrived late after getting a train and two tubes to get to what can only be described as a thistle amongst roses, The Lexington.

Live Review: Talos & Editors – Newcastle

Talos & Editors Northumbria University, 11th October 2018 Words: Sammy Sadler I’m ashamed to admit that although I have been a fan of Editors from afar for a long time, I never really paid much attention to the British indie-rock outfit.

Live Review: Sisteray – Liverpool

Sisteray The Jacaranda Club, 12 October 2018   Words & Photos: Gary Lambert Every legendary band has a tale which may or may not be true about playing a gig to just the barman or old Bill who drank in the pub every night of his life from aged 7. Which sounds cool, but I … Continue reading

LIVE REVIEW: Maximo Park – Gateshead

Maximo Park Sage Gateshead, 21st September 2018 Words: Samantha Sadler Photos: Thomas Jackson, Tynesight Photographic Services I’ve found that as I get older (yes I am approaching the wrong side of 20) I’m appreciating music much more than I ever really did.

Live Review: Hippo Campus – London

Hippo Campus London, 23rd August 2018 Words & Photos: Luke Pettican  As soon as you walked into Omeara’s delightfully styled main room, you could sense the raging excitement in the air.

Live Review: Jordan Allen – Liverpool

Jordan Allen Zanzibar, Liverpool Words: Cat Lewis Photos: Fi Carroll Having been a spectator at many a This Feeling gig I knew the line up for tonight would not disappoint. The first band of the evening were Strangers, a young local trio who kicked off the night with a strong set of grungy guitar riffs, strong … Continue reading

Live Review: Mint – Liverpool

Mint Liverpool, 20th May 2018 Words: Gary Lambert Photos: Fi Carroll The first band up of the evening were Monks, a distinctly loud and local presence with which to start the heart of the gig.

Live Review: Island – Liverpool

Island Buyers Club, Liverpool, 14th May 2018 Words & Photos: Gary Lambert The enjoyment that a gig generates is not simply based on the performance of the band(s) on stage, but rather a more complicated mixture of performance, venue, personal mood, and behaviour of your fellow audience members.  If any one of these aspects can … Continue reading

The Charlatans Northwich Memorial Court, 14th May 2018 The Charlatans have put together a festival and it’s a pretty decent offering, especially as they are the only headline – every day, well almost every day, for a week.

Live Review: Shame – Manchester

Shame Manchester, Gorilla, 13th April 2018 Words: Caleb Curtis If Whitworth Street West in Manchester didn’t know who Shame were by the start of the night, they certainly did by the end.
