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...

  Live Review – CKY – Wedgewood Rooms Growing up in the nineties and noughties was a golden age for my generation – we had MSN Messenger (RIP), the nu-metal wave and the birth of reality-style prank shows – namely Jackass and CKY. Those adult male pranksters terrorised the streets of...

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

  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...
