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. A smile was brought to my face immediately with the use of a trumpet right at the forefront of their … Continue reading

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

Live Review: Black Honey – Cardiff

Black Honey The Globe Cardiff, 13th May 2018 Words: Lewis Rogers Photos: Isaac Griffiths I’ve been following Black Honey’s music ever since they dropped their Bloodlust EP way back in 2014. Back then there was an elusiveness and mystery to the Brighton four piece but over the past few years they’ve earned a well-deserved reputation … Continue reading

Live Review: The Charlatans – Northwich

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. The festival North by Northwich, features an exhibition, DJ sets, after parties, a mini-conference with Sound City, and … Continue reading

Live Review: Marsicans – Manchester

Marsicans Words: Joe Cockburn  Photos: Georgia Flynn Snow had obliterated gigs across the country in early March, but buoyed by a week of seeing the absolutely epic Everything Everything twice, a much more intimate but equally as grand setting of Manchester’s Deaf Institute welcomed Marsicans on their (almost) sold-out UK tour – “damn you Glasgow,” … Continue reading

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. With attitudes that spoke as loud as their blistering sound, Gorilla itself appeared to be shaking at the foundations, as the young band cavorted their way through … Continue reading

Live Review: Circa Waves: Liverpool

Circa Waves EBGBS Liverpool, 5th April 2018 Words: Gary Lambert Photos: Fiona Carroll  Before I went beyond the world of being a music fan and started to write about gigs and pester bands about their opinions on life rather than just babble my congratulations in an overly excited manner, I had a very strong opinion of … Continue reading

Live Review: Pale Waves – Liverpool

Pale Waves Studio 2, Liverpool, 24th February 2018 Words & Photos: Elena Katrina It’s still absolutely baltic outside and there was a tiny part of me who really wanted to stay in the warm but the pull of not just one, not just two even, but three, great bands all playing the same line up … Continue reading

Live Review: Otherkin – Brighton

Otherkin Hope & Ruin, Brighton, 29th October 2017 Words: Lewis Cockle Photos: Chloe Hashemi One might say that Brighton’s Hope & Ruin was a slightly odd choice for a band that could quite easily pack out a larger venue, as Otherkin have been doing whilst on tour for their debut album OK. However, as a … Continue reading

Live Review: Wolf Alice – Brighton

Wolf Alice Brighton Dome, November 2017 Words & Photos: Chloe Hashemi There is always something particularly special about seeing a band just after a major album release. Seeing Wolf Alice at the Brighton Dome just a couple of months after the release of their stunning second album ‘Visions of a Life’ was no exception. The … Continue reading

Live Review: Lucy Rose – Brighton

Lucy Rose The Old Market, Brighton, 4th November 2017 Words & Photos: Chloe Hashemi I’ve always liked Lucy Rose. Having seen her live a couple of times over the past few years, I have always enjoyed watching her do her thing. But the key thing to know is that before the other night, I had … Continue reading

Live Review: Island – Nottingham

Island Nottingham, Bodega, 7th November 2017 Words: Emily Leonard On Tuesday the 7th of November in the charmingly compact upstairs space of Nottingham’s The Bodega, Leif Erickson joyously came on stage to invigourate the crowd’s spirits ready for ISLAND – and what a splendid job of doing so they did. The 5 piece indie rocker’s … Continue reading

Live Review: Public Service Broadcasting – Manchester

  Public Service Broadcasting Manchester Academy 16th October 2017 Words: Rebecca Worthington Support band Palace, with their distinctive blues sound, have long been championed by Popped Music. The London four-piece played songs from their stunning debut album, So Long Forever, released at the end of last year. Amongst these were the album’s title track with … Continue reading

Live Review: Dream Wife – Liverpool

Dream Wife The Magnet, Liverpool, October 12th 2017 Words: Gary Lambert Photos: Graham Smilie I’m a bit older than the kids at gigs today, so I don’t know if they have scrapbooks and memory boxes. But if they did (and I’m sure at least the quirky ones rebelling against social media will have), this gig … Continue reading
