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,…

Franz Ferdinand LIVE @ Ibiza Rocks

For the penultimate gig of the summer at Ibiza Rocks we had the wonderful Franz Ferdinand. This summer has flown by, but Ibiza Rocks have saved some of the best bands till last this year. I’d never seen them live…

The Strypes – LIVE @ Electric Ballroom, Camden

Rock n roll legends in the making? This is a question I have asked myself since the day I discovered The Strypes back in January, blown away by the video for “Got love if you want it”, a song that provided…

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…

Chic ft Nile Rodgers LIVE @ Ibiza Rocks

This was the gig that I had been waiting for all year – Chic featuring Nile Rodgers. I saw them last year in Ibiza at the 123 Festival so I knew what to expect – they really put on a…

Eels LIVE @ Liverpool 02 Academy

Not ones to do things by the rock n roll handbook, the fact that EELS have selected an unusual support line up is not surprising. First up is a magician who fixates the few early comers with some card tricks…

Drenge LIVE @ The Black Heart, Camden 5.9.13

So it’s Thursday night and one of my favourite nights of the week to be out in London and Camden town especially being a mecca not only for the music but for the sheer number of legendary venues on offer….

Babyshambles LIVE @ 02 Acedemy Newcastle 5.9.13

Pete Doherty.  What’s he all about then these days? As Sick Boy from Trainspotting might have said, “Had it, Lorst it”. Once a hero of mine his slow demise over the years has been both tragic and embarrassing. With that…

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club LIVE @ 02 Academy Newcastle

What ever happened to my rock’n’roll?  I enjoyed myself tonight. That’s the entire point isn’t? Of Life? To enjoy those moments that take you away from the painful realities of existence. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club did that for me tonight….

Ducktails LIVE @ The Borderline 22.08.13

Whilst having released their first album back in 2009, Ducktails, the psychedelic indie pop quartet from New Jersey are still relatively unknown within the UK music scene. As surprising as this is, the reward for being in the know is…
