Live Review – KISS at Hartwall Arena, Helsinki If you are looking for a non-biased live review of KISS at Hartwall Arena in Finland, the I would suggest you navigate away now. With that out of the way, for the rest of you that may follow my reviews it is no secret that I am a huge KISS fan. Unfortunately however due to extenuating circumstances, I have never got around to seeing them live. So when they announced the KISS World tour I was stoked, and immediately began scouring for dated that I would be able to attend – I needed to see this band finally. With friends in Finland, and no UK dates having yet been announced, I took the...

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...

Live Review: Voyager @ Fowlers, Adelaide May16

Live Review: Voyager @ Fowlers, Adelaide

  Live Review: Voyager @ Fowlers, Adelaide Review – Craig Grant: It’s a big night in Adelaide with Voyager, the prog masters of Australia, starting their Ghost Mile tour one day before the album is released. We reviewed the album  and it’s a corker, so really looking forward to hearing it live. Just as exciting we have the French duo The Algorithm in support and that’s one that I have been looking forward to for a long time. First up we have the Tony Font Show. What can you say about the rAdelaidean four-piece that call themselves the Tony Font Show? Its metal cum funk cum lounge music with a lot of slap bass and a guitarist that was...

  Marvellous Mo and the Backline Ferrets on the Serious Moonlight Tour of Sheppey at the Beach Bar and Hotel, Minster 29th April 2017 This was the first night that the band had ever played at this venue, which, by the way, had only been open in its current form for about eight weeks so it was to be a new and exiting experience for everyone. It was to be a night for the ‘Regulars’ –with one exception- Mo Dunk on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Dave Curling on bass guitar; Paul Deveraux on saxophone, Steve Gostling on keyboards, vocals and percussion and Michael Kinney on lead guitar. The exception was a young man by the name of Harry...

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...

Glasgow’s Mason Hill are hot property right now. From appearing on The Rising Stage at Ramblin’ Man Fair to winning Hard Rock Hell’s ‘Highway To Hell’ UK battle of the bands competition – this is a group very much in demand! The Scottish quintet’s blend of Classic meets Modern Hard Rock results in a batch of uncompromising riffs accompanied by anthemic sing along choruses and stadium friendly ballads. Their high energy live shows impress wherever they play, and they display the swagger and confidence of a band that has being doing it for twentysome years. In 2008 two school friends,...
