Gigslutz Tracks Of The Week, 20.09.13

Having recorded an album, toured extensively, and occasionally featured as Tim Burgess’ backing band, Hatcham Social would appear to have had quite an exciting couple of years. Having supported the likes of The Maccabees, The Horrors and The Charlatans, this…

Yuck LIVE @ The Macbeth 17.09.13

We’ve missed Yuck. There’s been a shoegaze shaped hole vacant in the scene since their last gig two years ago and it’s a hole only they can fit. Although a relatively small venue, Hoxton’s Macbeth boasts a full house tonight,…

Lisse ‘Back to Forever’ ALBUM REVIEW

Lissie hit the ground running back in 2010 with her debut album Catching A Tiger released on the mighty Columbia Records. It reached gold status selling in excess of 250,00 copies in a short period of time. “In Sleep” was…

Kings Of Leon LIVE @ Camden Roundhouse 11.9.13

Kind of underwhelming. Kings of Leon are one of those bands that make me want to drink whiskey and generally feel pretty awesome. This was more of Pimms occasion. I don’t know what it was, but if I was a…
