There’s a strange feeling you get when you’re careering down ancient and decrepit steps with no semblance of a hand rail, already feeling like a tit and aware that falling and scraping half of your face away couldn’t make things much worse. Luckily I know Newcastle well enough to take the severe downhill shortcut – […]

Date: 5th November 2017 Venue: Trillians, Newcastle Trillians is by far the best bar in Newcastle. That is of course, if you are one of those people who likes basement rock bars with a demon over the entranceway, a horror channel on constantly and live bands every night of the week. If you aren’t one of those people […]

Release Date: 30th September Purchase: http://apple.co/2Aq1WJI It’s about time for a proper dirty rock band. A straight forward no nonsense type of sound. The Kid Kapichi EP delivers this with an apparent swaggering ease, throwing out catchy guitar riffs and choruses with a late night dirty feel. This EP is a confident walk into a one night stand. The […]

Release Date: 25th August 2017 the Sign Records Bandcamp: https://thesignrecords.bandcamp.com/album/grande-royale-breaking-news I have been sitting here writing more consistently than I have for a long time, today and it’s been hectic, but that’s what happens when you go into hiding over the weekend, form the outside world and your own memory. As a result I feel like I have […]

Release date: 17th November 2015 Catacomb Records iTunes: https://goo.gl/om8N6F I have put off writing this review for a lot longer than I had planned. This is a perfect example of how a lack of organisation can keep you from doing something you love. Having hauled myself out from the avalanche of detritus that seems to have landed […]

Release Date: 8th September 2017 Pure Noise Records iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/some-of-you-will-like-this-some-of-you-wont/id1259891726 The title of this album gives you all of the information that you really need. No? OK, but it is definitely the most honest interpretation of a body of work that I have ever seen. It is easily the most surprised I have ever been by a […]

Venue: Think Tank, Newcastle Date: 17th September 2017 Sundays aren’t great for me at the best of times, but waking up early with a suspicious hangover after not being able to sleep for most of the night doesn’t help. I know I had had some wine before it, but a rum and coke shouldn’t cause an instant […]

Release Date: 17th February 2016 Heavy Psych Sounds Jet lag is a bitch. I’ve been awake since 4am, which is not an optimal time for exploring a strange city. Luckily I had my phone fully stocked for the trip so data roaming charges wouldn’t be too much of a problem; the Wifi in the hotel was […]

Release Date: 11th January 2016 Prime Collective Why do customer service people insist on calling you back when you have made a complaint? Especially when they can’t resolve anything and end up saying the same thing over and over again? After an infuriating fifteen-minute call where the woman on the other end seemed insistent that the […]

Release Date: 29th September Mascot Label Group/Mascot Records iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/black-to-blues-ep/id1260625041 There is an odd feeling that you get when you are looking at the write up for a blues release by Black Stone Cherry. I was a little dubious and a little bit apprehensive about starting this record off. I was a huge fan of the band’s […]
