Eden’s Curse – Revisited

  Eden’s Curse – Revisited It is not often I get to review an album I am totally familiar with. Usually I have at most two weeks to get accustomed with an album before sitting in front of a keyboard so it was brilliant to revisit(pun intended) an old friend. Here is the tricky bit…I am not a great fan of reissues, for me it kind of steals the magic from the original unless you can put a deliberate twist on it that is new and original and with “Revisited” that ticked the box enough for me to sit down and listen and to give an objective viewpoint. I bought Eden’s Curse debut when it came out way back in 2007 on a recommendation...

Yoon Do Hyun Band (often shortened to YoonBand or ...

  Yoon Do Hyun Band (often shortened to YoonBand or YB) are the most popular rock group in South Korea, recognized for their ability to mix traditional instruments such as gayageum (a variant of zither) and daegeum (a wooden flute) into their powerful rock sound, inspired by classic hard rock, grunge, blues and new wave. In the decade-plus since the band was established in 1994, it has sold two million albums (20 times platinum in Korea). Yoon Do Hyun teamed up with guitarist Hun Joon, bassist Park Tae Hee and drummer Kim Jin Won to form YB. Yoon Do Hyun became the vocalist, chief songwriter, and additional guitarist for the rock...

Halo Tora @ Stereo, Glasgow

  Halo Tora @ Stereo, Glasgow Tonight was my first taste of Halo Tora live and the only thought going through my head as I left this grubby, sweaty and totally brilliant venue was “why the hell are these guys not massive? Due to the earlier start I missed most of The Belafonte’s set which was a shame as they looked to be going down a treat. The band class themselves as Alt-rock but that can cover many bases in this day and age but for me they are far more akin to indie. The band now how to play and can work an audience(except for some dodgy one liners and a lot of bromance). I will keep my eyes peeled out for the guys in the future....

  Live Review: Real Friends, Columbus, Harbours in Adelaide Reviewer- Kirsten Grant. It’s a Wednesday night and it’s a five band bill topped by the US of A band Real Friends. We last saw them back in 2015 but we are back again in Adelaide for the, ‘Home Inside my Head’ tour. I’ve sauntered in, unfortunately missing the first two bands on the bill, but just in time to see Harbours take the stage – a stage that used to be fronted by a barrier but is now barrierless – with a nice, friendly crowd already hanging off the stage monitors. Time to get the camera out and make my way through the audience. Harbours are a five-piece from Melbourne...

Mason Hill @ The Garage, Glasgow Aug08

Mason Hill @ The Garage, Glasgow

Mason Hill @ The Garage, Glasgow So how do you actually gauge how a show went if you are a band? Well if any of the bands on this bill looked at social media this morning they must have got a serious idea. I woke up to post after post about Mason Hill, Anchor Lane and Deever, in fact I could probably save myself a couple of hours and just put on here everyones comments, such was the fervour and accolades for this show. The surprise of the night for me was the reception Anchor Lane got as they took to the stage. Was this really the band I only discover last year, a support slot again in the much smaller Audio venue. Very few people had heard...

Penrose: Let’s Go Out (single review)

Penrose: Let’s Go Out (single review) By Dave Simpson  – Aug 4, 2017 Irish indie rock act Penrose began as the brainchild of guitarist/vocalist Darragh McGrane and fellow musician Phil O’Luanaigh back in 2013 before evolving into a quintet that currently comprises McGrane, Mark Bolger, Benji Hayes, Donal Bowens and Caolan Fitzsimons. After unleashing their debut EP, Live for the Dream, to much ado in 2015, the dexterous Dubliners proceeded to put out several more successful singles, winning recognition from the likes of RTE, Today FM and FM104 ahead of a string of shows across the UK and Ireland, including a sell-out performance at...
