The Big Moon Oslo Hackney, London, 4th March 2020 Words and Photography: Amy Butcher Having released their album Walking Like We Do last month, The Big Moon have had nothing but praise on what has to be my favourite album of 2020 so far.

Live Review: Zuzu

Zuzu The Bodega, Nottingham, 1st March 2020 Words and Photos by Gary Lambert Sunday night in Nottingham has a curious vibe.  It is as busy as you would expect a city centre to be at that time, but with a genteel politeness.  I’ll be honest it confused me more than the one-way system.  But I … Continue reading

Live Review: Spector

Spector Oval Space, London, 13 November 2019 Words and Photos by Amy Butcher Before I start my review for what turned into my favourite gig of 2019 so far, I must admit I had very little knowledge of how Spector are as a live band.

Live Review: FEET – London

FEET Camden Assembly, London, 22nd October 2019 Words & Photography: Amy Butcher Do you ever discover a band and after listening to a few tracks they immediately become one of your favourite bands?

The Amazons O2 Academy, Newcastle, 12th November 2019 Words and Photography: Callum Robinson The Amazons hit Newcastle like a storm on a cold Tuesday night at the O2 Academy with support from the excellent The Mysterines and Demob Happy!  Having recently supported Sea Girls, The Mysterines started off the night.

Live Review: Freya Ridings – Newcastle

Freya Ridings O2 Academy, Newcastle, 11th November 2019 Words and Photography: Lauren Mellor As an opening night of tour, Newcastle is certainly a great place to get warmed up.  And is there much better than seeing a female-powered gig? Well that’s certainly what Freya’s performance, and admittedly her full tour, provides. It’s really empowering to … Continue reading

Live Review: Bear’s Den – Newcastle

Bear’s Den Newcastle University, Newcastle, 10 November 2019 Words and Photography: Callum Robinson On a cold November night in Newcastle, Bear’s Den filled the crowd with warmth and emotion as they played to a full house at Newcastle University.

Live Review: Pom Poko – London

Pom Poko The Scala, London, 23rd October 2019 Words: Nick Jaques When I rocked up to the familiar sight of the Scala, from the outside amongst the usual buzzing surroundings, there was a lack of activity on the door, which I found a bit precarious as this gig promised to showcase some of the most … Continue reading

Live Review: The Peach Fuzz – Liverpool

The Peach Fuzz Phase One, Liverpool, 18th October 2019 Words & Photos: Elena Katrina This was not the first time I’d seen The Peach Fuzz this year, nor was it the first time I’d seen main support Saytr Play. It was a bit of a dangerous mix and I think, this time, for me the … Continue reading

Live Review: Ten Tonnes – London

Ten Tonnes/h2> Electric Brixton, London, 10th October 2019>/h5> Words: Claire Hingley Well, I`ve seen Ten Tonnes so many times, that I’ve actually lost count.
