Ones To Watch: Nelson Can

Perhaps what’s most widely reported about Danish act Nelson Can is also the hardest to believe. Here’s a modern day indie band making a tempting mix of bass-heavy anthemic tunes, but without a lead guitar in sight. It’s all part…

Ones To Watch: Vulpynes

There’s something riotous going in Dublin lately. Groups like Girl Band and Bitch Falcon have delivered a sneering, noisy grunge, fronting an uncompromising and exciting new wave of Irish rawk n rawl. And now there’s singer-guitarist Maeve Molly and drummer…

Whilst groups losing members is fairly common, how often do duos become trios? Well, that’s the case for Birmingham garage band Table Scraps who, following lead singer and guitarist Scott’s recovery from skeletal surgery – clearly the rockingest form of…
