TUESDAY 02 OCTOBER 2018 New single: “Community” Released 17th August 2018 “Mammal is f**king excellent to watch; there’s no denying it. They have so much energy in their playing and performance that you cannot help but get swept away in it. These guys are building a loyal fan base and you can see why. The veritable frenzy that happened during the playing of Hell Yeah made me feel that I was watching a pack of wild animals unleashed – which is frankly what you want when you’re watching good rock’n’roll.” – Carolyn Miller, Drum...

Sons of Apollo

Sons of Apollo   Another glorious evening saw the sun shine down upon old Belfast Town and made for a warm and pleasant wait for the crowds outside the Limelight until the doors inevitably opened. And in poured a lot of eager punters. Tonight was going to be an interesting night of rock. Up first on stage was Jay Wud, a Dubai-based 4-piece, band named after its frontman, a Lebanese singer/songwriter and guitarist. Cranking it up immediately they offered the crowd a solid performance of crushing riffs and catchy clear vocals with “Empire”, “Juggernaut” and “Killing my Own”. Chugging rhythms, thumping drums, rolling bass, lightening...

  Stone Free Fesitval – Sunday 17th June 2018 – 02 London This was my first time at Stone Free Festival and for those who have not been it is a well thought out 2 day festival. Day 2 was billed as Prog and Blues but there was enough variety to keep everyone entertained. The whole of the 02 venue is used, from the Orange Amp stage which is outside but undercover, near the entrance to Indigo at the 02, a smaller venue inside but with a great stage plus plenty of room to move around. The main arena is also used later in the day. When I arrived, I caught a few minutes of StoneWire, with a female singer, Sky Hunter who really...

  Stone Free festival serve up a meaty metal smorgasbord with their Saturday three course headline menu The Orange Amps stage and the Indigo at the O2 had exhausted their last servings for the Saturday festivities. Many metallers had gotten a great taste for new and upcoming bands form a very full menu of musical hors–d’oeuvre. But now came the three course main evening menu with Buckcherry, Megadeth and Scorpions. First from the platter and onto the table was the ever writhing sleaze shocking, hard-rocking superstars Buckcherry. Straight from the oven came the pipping hot “Ridin”, “Broken Glass” and “Slammin”.

The Zombies at the Assembly, Leamington 13/06/18

  The Zombies at the Assembly, Leamington 13/06/18 Before the legendary Zombies came on stage they were to be supported by a family trio Arc, but this isn’t any old family they are the granddaughters and son of the great late Argent bassist Jim Rodford. Their set consisted of some original songs they had written and also some covers, two of which were Simon and Garfunkel’s Mrs Robinson and a beautiful version of Buffy Saint Marie’s Universal Soldier. The three siblings are Anja, Cara and Russell Rodford and the harmonies between the girls along with the acoustic guitar accompaniment of their uncle were beautiful, and it was a lovely...
