ALBUM: James Yuill – ‘A Change In State’

Having specialised in audio forensics at university, James Yuill’s understanding of sound is inherently scientific. His experience in analysing sound as criminal evidence, something which may sound worlds away from the method behind writing an album, has proved to have…

The current punk renaissance has brought to the fore The Touts from Derry, Proletariat from Manchester and now Liverpool is trying its luck with Generation. Liverpool is not somewhere particularly famed for its punk heritage, but nevertheless Generation are blazing…

EP: HAUS – ‘S W Y S’
