Incubus – Live Review – Ulster Hall – Belfast Sep20

Incubus – Live Review – Ulster Hall – Belfast...

Summer is gone and it’s pissing down as I bomb down the motorway en route to the infamous venue that is The Ulster Hall in Belfast. Why pray tell, well I’m glad you asked. There’s a lil’ old band from Cali-forn-i-a in town called Incubus and they’re ready to rock! In tow Ecca Vandal, a South African born artist who fuses a wealth or worldly influences into an angst ridden, groove laden and hard hitting songs that pack a punch of a heavyweight. At first it seem like a curious combo but as the set grows her hefty weighted rhythms and ballsy swagger prove contagious. You cant take your eyes off the stage as she covers it end to end, thrashing...

Biffy Clyro go Unplugged Sep20

Biffy Clyro go Unplugged

Gig Review: Biffy Clyro go Unplugged in The Waterfront Hall, Belfast Biffy Clyro are no strangers to these shores, in fact they’ve regularly remarked that it’s almost a second home to them. And it usually feels like a sort of homecoming show when they play here. And this time was no different. In the wonderful surroundings of Belfast’s Waterfront Hall, Biffy Clyro were delivering a slightly more intimate affair than their more recent shows here, from headlining shows at Belsonic, The SSE Arena and a support slot with Muse at T Vital. Those shows were full blown, electric, heavy gigs in support of their number one album Ellipsis. This time...

King King @ The Barrowland, Glasgow Sep20

King King @ The Barrowland, Glasgow

King King @ The Barrowland, It has been over a year since King King played in Glasgow. We have lost the beloved 02 ABC in that time, the venue where the band recorded their incredible live album. It is still doubtful this will ever return so the boys have already secured a little slice of history but they want more. Tonight they are support to some band that had a pretty big hit back in the 80s, a band I never really took too so after this set I made my way to another gig in the city…but I do wonder if post brexit Europe will be allowed back! I swear without knowing it if I saw a clip of a live King King show I would be able to tell...

Sari Schorr – Never Say Never

  Sari Schorr – Never Say Never The woman with the beautiful voice and just as beautiful soul is back with a new engine room and a new album, 11 songs to make you think, to make you remember your past both good and bad, to move you, to fill your heart and to live with you for a lifetime. Before I played this album I was filled with excitement and trepidation. I have lived with her debut “Force of Nature” these past two years. It is constantly on my Ipod and in that time I have managed to see this woman play two of my favourite shows, both played in stunning old churches in Glasgow. Both shows saw tears on my cheeks purely from the...

Florence Black @ Broadcast, Glasgow Sep12

Florence Black @ Broadcast, Glasgow

  Florence Black @ Broadcast, Glasgow The bill for this show was perplexing, Florence Black just did not fit with the other bands and as I really did not enjoy the others I have decided tonight is going to be classed as FB first Glasgow headline show…I was only here to see them anyway. Of course they did not headline and that means they did not do a full set but my first taste of Florence Black was incredible. With three top class EPs under their belt I was expecting a lot but man did they blow me away. This band does southern music with a grudge. Picture Florence Black’s best mate was Southern music, and that best mate just...

Rose Tattoo @ SWG3, Glasgow Sep10

Rose Tattoo @ SWG3, Glasgow

  Rose Tattoo @ SWG3, Glasgow The Rock,n,Roll outlaws returned to Glasgow after a very lengthy absence, they packed out this relatively new venue and blew away a mostly elderly crowd. Girlschool are support for this small tour and they were a perfect addition as the bands have been treading the boards and playing the same venues for a long time. Unfortunately for me the ridiculously early start time meant I missed nearly all of their set. To be fair I am not sure that this was a bad thing as their sound was awful and my first taste of this venue was not great. Let me take you back a bit, Rose Tattoo started in 1976 with their debut...

  Bad Touch – Shake A Leg I will start this review with a fact, Bad Touch are one of the best live bands the UK has to offer. They have toured every town across this island in search of their dream. It grinds my gears when I think that the band have been on the go for nine years and I...
