Stiff Little Fingers: ‘Best Served Loud – Live at ...

  Stiff Little Fingers: ‘Best Served Loud – Live at the Barrowland’ Review – Craig Grant – Stiff Little Fingers, the SLF or the Rigid Digits are the pioneers of punk rock. In 1977 the world was filled with acts such as the Pistols, the Buzzcocks, the Undertones and The Clash but the SLF stood out. They were angry and in a hurry to share their political slant on a world that was honed from their experience growing up during, ‘The Troubles’. Infectious hooks, no nonsense delivery and a commitment to telling it like it is was the trademark of a SLF show. By the time Suspect Device and Alternative Ulster came on at a gig you had been...

Devilskin lays waste to Ireland

  Devilskin lays waste to Ireland Devilskin are not a band to sit back and take it easy, no, they are constantly pushing barriers and themselves to take their brutally melodic metal to the masses and now it is Ireland’s turn. Having caught Devilskin on every tour in the UK so far it was time for me to make a trip across the water, catch up with some old friends and see what all the fuss is about this place called Limelight. As is usual when I decide to travel to gigs there is always something thrown at me to make things a bit more difficult and today it was watching my plane coming in to land with a smashed windscreen and covered with...

Love Zombies Live @ Abbey Road Studios

  Love Zombies Live @ Abbey Road Studios Have you ever done something and instantly knew it was a once in a lifetime moment? Something you know will never be repeated? For me today was that day. Of all the gigs, festivals, backstage, VIP, taking photos and interviewing bands over 35 years and one day can turn it all on its head and everything pales in comparison. The day started very differently, a stormy Scotland had an instant effect on my journey as delays hit everything from trains, planes and everything in-between. The day was definitely sent to test me but after seven hours travelling and almost 500 miles(no mention of that song...
