EP Review: Figures –...

  EP Review: Figures – ‘Chronos’ Reviewer: Lavender Baj – It feels like there’s another ‘up and coming’ band from Melbourne that’s set to be ‘the next big thing’ every other week, so why should we care about FIGURES, right? Wrong. This 5-piece band from the not-so-sunny city of...

Album Review : Balef...

  As album titles go Siesmic Shifter has to be as close to spot on as you can get. If this release does not propel the Belfast boys to new heights I will be gobsmacked. Living in Scotland we haven’t had much chance to see this bunch live but luckily I caught them at Wildfire Festival...

Miami Monroe @ Audio, Glasgow May23

Miami Monroe @ Audio, Glasgow

  Miami Monroe @ Audio, Glasgow Pup Punkers on the way up Miami Monroe headline one of my favourite Glasgow venues and tear the place apart. Although there was a few bands on tonight I only managed to catch the support slot from the brilliant Better Days. This crazy bunch of Geordies played a brilliant set previously with the headliners tonight in the much smaller Broadcast earlier this year so with a bigger crowd and a slightly bigger stage they were determined to make sure you remembered their name(oh…that and the fact they gave everyone and their dog a business card). Although their set was short it was far from sweet. They...

  Review: Colibrium – ‘In Balance’ Reviewer: Craig Grant. This review is an opportunity to make things right. This album was released about 12 months ago, so this review isn’t about flogging a new release or meeting a PR’s request. It is about bringing to your attention that there is a...

All Time Low have returned to Adelaide May18

All Time Low have returned to Adelaide

  Review by Lavender Baj: Pix by Maddi Baj In their first Australian tour since Soundwave 2015, All Time Low have returned to Adelaide for a night that can only be described as pure pop-punk hysteria. Supported by international sensations The Maine and Neck Deep, this triple threat tour has taken Australia by storm over the past week and Adelaide was certainly no exception. Arizona-based alternative rockers, The Maine kicked off the night with an electric performance of their hit track Black Butterflies and Déjà Vu, instantly making it clear that they weren’t just another filler band to kill time before the headliner. Although I hadn’t...

Melbourne heavyweights Mammoth Mammoth.

  Reviewer: Craig Grant It’s been a while since we last checked out Melbourne heavyweights Mammoth Mammoth. In fact it was the release of the EP Mammoth Bloody Mammoth back in February 2016. Now it’s time for a new LP, in the form of Mount the Mountain, which is eleven tracks in the Mammoth x 2 style of laid back and raw rock. The four piece sound like the love child of Kyuss and Clutch with a couple of coats of vegemite to make sure you know this is true blue pub rock. A bit like the US band Dead Till Dark they are hard rock with a punk underbelly and no-shit attitude. The cover of this album is highlighter orange and the sort of...

Black Spiders Farewell Gig @ Stereo Glasgow May15

Black Spiders Farewell Gig @ Stereo Glasgow

  Black Spiders Farewell Gig @ Stereo Glasgow The sad day is finally upon us, Black Spiders have decided enough is enough and the moment this gig was announced I knew there was no way I was missing this show. Support tonight and for the tour was Bigfoot, a band I had caught recently and never seem to be far from Scotland. They may not have been the first band you though would be supporting the Spiders but they always play a blazing set and tonight was no different. They brought their brand of cock rock and to be fair a good few fans as well. They are all about groove, killer songs and fun. Black Spiders may very well be at the end of...

King King\ Bad Touch @ 02 ABC, Glasgow May12

King King\ Bad Touch @ 02 ABC, Glasgow

  King King\ Bad Touch @ 02 ABC, Glasgow King King seem to bring the sun to Scotland. Almost a year to the day they strolled into Glasgow, the sun streaming in the sky and they left having wrapped up a blistering performance that was captured for all eternity on the King King live CD…the boys had some feat to overshadow that so how did they do? But before we get to the headliners we had probably the hardest touring band in the UK…who just happen to be awesome in their own right. Yes, Bad Touch were back in town. They are no strangers to Scotland with the last gig less than two months ago as they co headlined with Broken...

ALBUM REVIEW: Inglorious avoid the dreaded second album with a stormer on II   INGLORIOUS were formed a mere three years ago, in 2014, when Nathan James having had a spell as singer for The Trans-Siberian orchestra and Uli Jon Roth decided to look for like minded musicians to play old school...
