With album four on the way, it seemed a logical end to a wold spanning four year reunion tour. An announcement followed, suddenly the […]

Live Review: The Blinders

Date: 21/02/2018 Venue: The Lexington, London Across town the Brit Awards took centre stage, still an institution but in many ways now just a worrying insight into the very much closed circle of modern mainstream music. The Lexington boasted the opposite, The Blinders in the form of their lives and a true representation of the […]

Live Review: Liam Gallagher

Date: 10/12/2017 Venue: Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham Liam Gallagher’s arena return has already been nothing short of spectacular.

Date: 10/09/2017 Venue: OnBlackheath Festival, Blackheath, London Following a festival of grotesque rain and freezing winds you’d be forgiven for feeling lacklustre as the evening approached however, The Libertines were the shining light at the end of the metaphorical tunnel.

Live Review: The Cribs

Date: 14/08/2017 Venue: Rough Trade, Nottingham The Cribs are on course for their highest ever chart position and emotions in the camp couldn’t be happier.

Live Review: Field Day 2017

Date: 03/06/2017 Venue: Victoria Park, Hackney, London Consolidating to just one day this year, I found myself with a pretty hectic schedule for this year’s Field Day.

Date: 17/05/2017 Venue: Sebright Arms, Hackney (London) Billed as a sweaty pub gig in an East London pub, Carl Barat & The Jackals’ triumphant return to touring was both intense, somewhat chaotic and entirely enjoyable. Debuting new songs and a hive of old ones too, it saw arguably The Jackals’ greatest setlist to date. London’s Sebright Arms […]
