Anchor Lane – New Beginning So Rock world I give you Anchor Lane, a young and highly talented three piece from Glasgow. New Beginning is classed as their debut(although it isn’t really) but let’s take it at its merits and treat it as such. I have been avidly awaiting this release since I saw...

Glenn Hughes/ Stone Broken @ The Garage Glasgow Jan29

Glenn Hughes/ Stone Broken @ The Garage Glasgow

Glenn Hughes/ Stone Broken @ The Garage Glasgow It is a huge night in Glasgow for gigs, there are 4 top class acts playing with probably the biggest the farewell from Black Sabbath. That was always going to hit numbers tonight especially as this was the rescheduled gig from last year. Tonight was a matter of allegiances for me, I have done many Sabbath gigs and I was one of those idiots who went to the last farewell tour. No, this was an easy choice, Glenn always performs at the top of his game and with a support as good as Stone Broken there was no question where I would end up. Are there still people out there who do not know how fucking...

Nashville Pussy The Crauford Arms in Milton Keynes Jan28

Nashville Pussy The Crauford Arms in Milton Keynes

So tonight I’m photographing at The Crauford Arms in Milton Keynes. Is actually a decent sized pub quite a few punters in already so looks as though the gig is going to be quite substantial? I’m really looking forward to tonight. First up we have Long John and The Killer Blues Collective, followed by followed by Desert Storm, and ending the night in from The US, the headliner act, the aptly named Nashville Pussy who I’m really quite looking forward to hearing. It’s my first night down at Crauford arms and it looks as though it might become a regular as I have such a good lineup including the Lioness Amy Winehouse...

Cerebral scar gig at the king billy rock bar in Northampton Jan28

Cerebral scar gig at the king billy rock bar in Northampton. This is the busiest I’ve seen the king billy, and Friday night, end of the month, it should be. On the bill tonight, a launch party for Northampton band Cerebral Scar, who are joined by Haema and Iron Grave. The lighting in The King Billy is challenging, and the stage is tucked away into a corner. Indeed this is the second time I’ve photographed here. The rumours of a new improved stage and lighting are yet to come to fruition. That said, the following here is loyal and the punters really enjoy this venue where many perform, so I fiddle around with the camera settings,...

  Joanne Shaw Taylor/ Broken Witt Rebels @ 02 ABC Glasgow The Joanne Shaw Taylor bandwagon rolls into Glasgow. The woman is finally getting the attention she deserves as the venue this year is much bigger, the crowd much rowdier and the place is packed for what was to be an amazing set by both bands. After missing them numerous times last year I finally got to see the Broken Witt Rebels take to a stage and ignite an audience. After their set that night I swore I would not miss them again in this city and so I was there front and centre and glad that there was not much time between gigs. This band stands out in a pot of talent that is...

  Single By Sunday/ Miami Monroe/ Altered Sky @ 02 ABC Glasgow Well it is first gig of the year time and if you like your Pop/Punk there is no better place to be than Glasgow. This is a showcase for Scottish bands all on the one stage and it drew in old and young alike. First up were Altered Sky who finished the year off in style with an amazing headliner set at the nearby Garage. It Was a fitting end to a brilliant year for the band who are turning heads and finally getting some breaks. The band brought a huge number of their own fans tonight who just wanted to see them irrespective of the length of their set being third from last on....

Silver Dust – Homecoming at Le Royal, Tavannes CH Jan20

Silver Dust – Homecoming at Le Royal, Tavannes CH...

  Silver Dust – Homecoming at Le Royal, Tavannes CH This was the first time I had seen the full show from Silver Dust with complete theatrics – as it was cut down so much for the European tour with Lordi – so it seems only fitting to go to their home country of Switzerland to see the whole she-bang. And it could not have been more perfect. During the tour with Lordi, Silver Dust immediately caught my attention – along with many other peoples’ attention too. Even with their abridged theatrical show, they were still able to blow the doors and roofs off of each venue they attended in the UK, every show I was present at. The...

Geoff Tate Acoustic @ The Cathouse Glasgow Jan13

Geoff Tate Acoustic @ The Cathouse Glasgow

  Geoff Tate Acoustic @ The Cathouse Glasgow At the tail end of 2016 as everyone was frantically purchasing tickets for all the big shows this year I was impatiently pacing back and forth waiting for this gig. The moment it was announced it was in my diary as sometimes you just know how good a show you are going to get. On the night things were running a bit behind schedule and although this gave punters a chance to hear the sound check it unfortunately dug into the time allocated to support The Mark Daly Band. This was a real shame as the band played out of their skin with their rocked up Country/ Indie acoustic sounds. For a band...

Annihilator – Triple Threat

  Annihilator – Triple Threat If you are into thrash metal, then you would have undoubtedly heard of Annihilator. They are one of Canada’s ‘Big 4’ thrash metal bands; having had a career spanning from 1984, with the legendary ‘Alice in Hell’ album in 1989, up to 2015’s ‘Suicide Society’. They have just completed a European tour (which I unfortunately missed) and are now currently on a US tour, before setting to work on their sixteenth studio album. ‘Triple Threat’ is their latest compilation album to tantalise the ears in the meanwhile, which will be released on January 27th...

Mike Ross’s new album ‘Jenny’s P...

  With Christmas now out of the way for another year, I am slowly getting back into the swing of things and returning to my routine of reviewing new music. For my first review of 2017 after the Christmas break, I chose Mike Ross’s new album ‘Jenny’s Place’ from the long backlog of albums for me to review. As I set it playing on my musical Bluetooth Christmas tree whilst I cooked my dinner (yes really), the first thing that struck me is how great the album is to jive to. The first track Bamboozled lulls you in with an easy-going intro and first verse, which has hints of Jace Everett encapsulated within. The...

  Popular Irish Indie band,Penrose supported Aslan in the first of their 3 sold out shows in Vicar Street on the 27th December. 2016 has been a good year for Penrose,with a Festival performance at Sea Sessions in Donegal,2 Tours in the UK,and to round off the year nicely,supporting Irish giants,Aslan at one of their sold-out Vicar Street gigs. Definetely ones to watch for 2017. When Penrose arrived on stage ,Vicar Street was already filling up. Aslan’s die-hard fanbase weren’t about to miss out on anything. Penrose didn’t disappoint.Even though lead singer,Darragh Mc Crane was suffering from a sore throat.it didn’t show,and the lads...
