Live review Cats In Space / Space Elevator G2 Glasgow When the “Out Of This World” tour landed in Glasgow the happiest man in the venue was Space Elevator Scottish guitarist David Young who was playing his hometown. Sporting a rather fetching vintage Scotland football jersey he joked that it was easier for him to wear it up here rather than down south and his smile was beaming throughout the set.Fronted by The Duchess Space Elevator play an infectious brand of 80’s inspired rock that would not sound out of place on a west end stage. The Duchess manages to make the show very theatrical without any actual production and she’s obviously born...

The Beat new Album

The Beat (or The English Beat for our US readers) were founded back in 1978 in Birmingham, during a period of high unemployment and social upheaval in the UK. Their unique style combines ska, pop, soul and even some punk rock, mixed up with a massive chunk of reggae – no doubt helped along by...

Kee Marcello Scaling Up- Album Review With Kee’s new solo album, ‘Scaling Up’ I have made a point of putting it out of my head that he was once a part of one of Sweden’s biggest musical exports, selling millions of albums and playing to just as many fans all over the...

Love Zombies/ The Amorettes @ king Tuts Wah Wah Hu...

Love Zombies/ The Amorettes @ king Tuts Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow We are well and truly into high season as far as gigs go. Tonight sees my third in two days and it is another cracking co headlining show which along with the arena, four band gigs is becoming more and more popular. As a fan it is all about bang for your buck and for bands it is an obvious winner. Tonight we have what would appear to be a strange mix of The Amorettes and Love Zombies. You may think the mix of pure Rock/Metal and Pop/Punk might not cut it but not one person here tonight would complain. I suspect a good majority here were definitely coming to see The Amorettes who...

Live Review – Kee Marcello Audio Glasgow 23r...

Live Review – Kee Marcello Audio Glasgow 23rd September I’ve seen many memorable sights on a Friday evening in Glasgow but none quite as surreal as the headlining performer that you are in town to see dodging buses as he trails his luggage behind him in the quest to get to his hotel.Kee Marcello looking left then right as he crosses the street is right up there with numerous incidents involving traffic cones as sights you seldom see unless it’s Friday and it’s Glasgow. But before we get to the headliner we have two rather different but equally exciting young bands to wrap our ears around.First up are a young up and coming local band...

RSJ new album

Metalcore band RSJ have been around since 2002 – and yes, the name is a direct reference to Rolled Steel Joist, the girder used in construction. It is an in-joke with the band, referencing ‘good support and a piece of heavy metal’. The band has been going fourteen years, but in...

LIVE REVIEW: Diamond Head sparkle at Belfast’s Voodoo, ably assisted by Terminus Sep25

LIVE REVIEW: Diamond Head sparkle at Belfast’...

LIVE REVIEW: Diamond Head sparkle at Belfast’s Voodoo, ably assisted by Terminus THEY are the most under appreciated bands in the history of metal, a band whose licks, tricks and arrangements helped shape so many bands, but they are practically unequalled live – even when down one guitarist Diamond Head deliver. It might be the case that Diamond Head are playing venues much smaller than they deserve, but they pack the Voodoo in Belfast with fans new and old – not just because of their reputation, but because there is a renewed buzz about Diamond Head and their self-titled release earlier this year. Local act, Terminus, had...

Love Zombies – Passionfruit

Love Zombies – Passionfruit With Love Zombies you know one thing you are going to get be it live or recorded and that is FUN. I first discovered this band at Download 2015, it was wet( of course it was wet you idiot) and they were playing in one of the tents. My mate had heard one track so we made our way up the hill and straight to the barrier to see what would unfold…and I have loved them ever since. Live they were just quirky, fun and full of excellent Pop/Punk songs and that is transferred to CD perfectly on this their debut full length release Passionfruit. This band was only a part time band which will probably explain why many...

GHOST ANNOUNCE NEW E...

Over the past ten years, Ghost have fast been making a name for themselves, and you have almost certainly heard that very name in some way, shape or form – be it their recent Grammy success or the controversy that tends to surround them regarding their Satanism image, which gets them into all...

The Hero Dies First – Rise Sep22

The Hero Dies First – Rise

The Hero Dies First – Rise I recently caught this Bedfordshire band in Glasgow of all places(check out our live review of Splintered halo for full update and pictures) and they blew the roof off. I had not came across them before so it was the surprise of the evening and they won myself and everybody present over within minutes. I enjoyed it that much I had to buy this recently released EP and review it. The full title of the EP is Endgame Part 2 : Rise as it is part two of a four part collection and I will now have to get a copy of part one and I will not be missing parts three and four when they finally come out. There is something fresh...

Crobot – Welcome To Fat City OK folks, dig out your tie dye t-shirt, slip into those flares and be prepared to get some serious groove on. Crobot’s second album ”Welcome To Fat City” is huge. So huge it seems that according to the band this is too big for Earth to handle and the Fat City is...

Those Damn Crows Album Review- Murder and the Motive Hailing from Wales, Those Damn Crows have a thunderous debut album that puts me very much in mind of ‘Inglorious’ and ‘Stone Broken’, both bands which  have recently been making waves in the British rock scene. This...
