LIVE REVIEW: Hurricane Darkness rips into The Limeight ON what may become known as Ophelia Eve, a storm of a different kind arrived in Belfast’s Limelight and played like it was their last night on Earth. The night began with Cork three piece ‘Mindriot’. The room was already full when they kicked things off. The lads even managed to get the punters chanting along. They made the most of their little sliver of stage and warmed the crowd up considerably for the impending storm, even if lead vocalist Tony’s banter between songs was difficult to comprehend; a combination of a heavy bass and an even heavier accent! After a small break, The...

Samarkind- Samarkind

  Samarkind- Samarkind What the hell are they putting in the water in Ireland? The emerald isle already has a host of brilliant young talent, The Answer, Baleful Creed, Gasoline Outlaws and The Screaming Eagles to name but a few. Yes, they have also produced gods in the likes of thin Lizzy and Gary Moore so be prepared to add another name to the list, Samarkind are about to send shockwaves through the rock world with this debut release. From the moment opener “ Black Rain” hums its way to your ears till the bluesy “Blue Mountain” fades out you are going to be in blues/rock heaven. I can happily say this is the best debut of 2017 for...

  The Kentucky Headhunters/ Bad Touch @ 02, ABC, Glasgow After seeing this show last year you would be mentally deranged to miss it again. Even though Inglorious were playing down the street and I love them there was no way I was missing this. I was expecting big things from this show but even I was blown away at how good this was. As I walk into the venue I am wondering what the smell is, no, it is not the Gary Numan fans downstairs…it is MUD! Local band The Swamp Born Assassins have been added to the bill and what a stroke of genius. I have heard a lot of noise about this band but never saw them live even though I am very...

Inglorious The Classic Grand Glasgow

  Inglorious The Classic Grand Glasgow 10/10/2017 Music fans were spoiled for choice as to which gig they were going to go to on a Tuesday night in Glasgow. Gary Numan , The Kentucky Headhunters , Midge Ure and their support bands all playing . What a clash ! The first of many in the next couple of months I guess. Can I make it from one venue another to see the 2nd support band or catch the headlining band finish ? Too much hassle and nothing guaranteed so I stayed put where I was. I arrived at the Classic Grand as Toby Jepson and his Wayward Sons were playing to an almost full venue. I caught 5 numbers by them . Not sure how much time...

LIVE REVIEW: Alter Bridge’s triumphant return to Belfast’s Ulster Hall AFTER playing two gigs at the Royal Albert Hall in London earlier in the week it was clear the band was pumped up and that Belfast was in for yet another spectacular Alter Bridge show. Playing to another nearly sold out crowd they brought with them London formed rock band As Lions playing songs from their début album ‘Selfish Age’ it was evident from the start that this band had energy and a good stage presence of a band that had been performing for a while, playing songs such as ‘White Flags’ and ‘Bury my Dead’ they got the crowd’s attention. The lights...
