Live Review: The Van T’s, Preston

Live Review: The Van T’s Roper Hall, Preston, 12 April 2019 Words and Photographs by Gary Lambert Despite it being a fairly regular location on the circuit and only about 35 minutes drive from home, I had never in 20+ years of gig going made my way to Preston.

Live Review: Gerry Cinnamon, Liverpool

Gerry Cinnamon, Liverpool Guild of Students, 23 March 2019 Words by Gary Lambert It is the ethos of Popped Music to write about music that we love and would recommend to people.

Live Review: The Rifles – Glasgow

The Rifles The Garage, Glasgow, 14th October 2016 Words: Gary Feeney Photos: Cameron Brisbane It’s not always the case that you’d be able to muster a great deal of enthusiasm for a band making their second appearance in a city in the same year and nor is it often the case that a band releasing … Continue reading

Just Listen: The Vegan Leather – This House

The Vegan Leather Words: Gary Feeney We know The Vegan Leather have been around for a while and that This House isn’t exactly a new single, but since we’ve featured a number of other acts from this year’s Tenement Trail line-up in recent weeks, we felt that it was only fair that we show some … Continue reading

Just Listen: The Ninth Wave – Change

The Ninth Wave Words: Gary Feeney The Ninth Wave’s Soundcloud biography consists of two simple words. Normally, you’d find such a brief description to be a bit frustrating, especially if you’re looking for a some nformation to use when writing something like this to hopefully introduce people to a band, but in this case, the … Continue reading

Just Listen: The Telermen – Trust You

The Telermen Words: Gary Feeney As we’ve noted before on Popped, there’s a seemingly endless procession of good bands emerging in and around Glasgow these days and amongst the latest to appear is four-piece the Telermen, featuring one Dillon Squire, Son of Stone Roses legend, John.

Just Listen: Prides – Rome

Prides The (ahem) pride of Glasgow, Prides, return with new single Rome and it brings a ever so slightly rockier edge to their usual disco-pop infused sound. Fear not though if that’s what you’ve always loved about them, that feel is still very much still the thread that keeps the track stitched together. I found … Continue reading

Holy Esque Glasgow Art School, 7th May 2016 Words: Gary Feeney Usually when I come across a new band who I really like, I’ll end up spending ages watching all sorts of live videos on YouTube; especially so, if I know I’m going to see them. For whatever reason though, I never quite got round … Continue reading

Just Listen: White – Fight The Feeling

White Words: Gary Feeney After releasing three quite brilliant singles last year, you could probably have been forgiven for wondering if White could hit the same heights with their latest offering, Fight The Feeling; if you had any such doubts about this band though, you would have been very wrong indeed. Bristling with the kind … Continue reading

The Insomniac Project Words: Gary Feeney It seems that there’s another good new band appearing in Glasgow at every turn these days, with latest on the impressive conveyor belt being electro 6-piece The Insomniac Project.

Live Review: White – Glasgow

White QMU, 20th February 2016 Words: Gary Feeney I tweeted a week or so ago that White’s latest single, Living Fiction, sounds and feels just like a classic that’s been around for years.
