Mason Hill/ Massive Wagons @ The Cathouse, Glasgow

Mason Hill/ Massive Wagons @ The Cathouse, Glasgow Welcome to the big time Mason Hill. A hometown headline show that sold out over a month ago. The Cathouse is steeped in rock and metal history in this town. Last year it celebrated its 25th Anniversary and tonight Mason Hill wrote themselves into this legends history books themselves. I have seen all number of bands in this and the previous Cathouse’s venue, large and small and you just need to look at the band names on the steps as you enter to know that some of the biggest bands on the planet at one stage in their career have played this place. Two of those bands in Anthrax and Black...

Blaze Bailey/ Damaj @ Ivory Blacks, Glasgow Mar08

Blaze Bailey/ Damaj @ Ivory Blacks, Glasgow

  Blaze Bailey/ Damaj @ Ivory Blacks, Glasgow Almost a year to the day Blaze Bailey returns to Glasgow to promote his latest album and number two in the Trilogy. Having been at last years gig I am pleased to say there are far more punters here tonight and as his fans can get a bit crazy I was expecting a rowdy night…and I was not disappointed. It is all a bit Deja vu tonight as main support comes from local lads Damaj. I honestly do not know why I am surprised by these guys every single time I see them. I should know by now they consistently push the bar every single gig but tonight there was a huge difference. It has been a...

Twelve Foot Ninja @ Adelaide, Australia. Mar06

Twelve Foot Ninja @ Adelaide, Australia.

Live Review – Twelve Foot Ninja @ Adelaide, Australia. Reviewed by Craig Grant: What a night we have lined up tonight with Twelve Foot Ninja touring the colossal, ‘Outlier’ album on the Sick Tour. The ticket says doors at 8pm but we find out that the Ninjas won’t be on stage until 10:45pm. This leads to the bars being chocka and bodies everywhere. Luckily we have a few bands to get things going, but warming up is not too much of an issue as it’s a hot and sticky night in Adelaide. Back to the bar again to hydrate. First up we have Colibrium and this is a first for me as I haven’t come across the band before. They released their first album...

Warrior Soul/ Anchor Lane @ The Bungalow, Paisley Feb27

Warrior Soul/ Anchor Lane @ The Bungalow, Paisley

  Warrior Soul/ Anchor Lane @ The Bungalow, Paisley The original angry man of metal returns to the UK and plays a more intimate show just outside Glasgow. Having been a fan from the very beginning I was looking forward to this one. Before I go on to talk about either band tonight I have to comment on the venue. This was my first visit to The Bungalow in Paisley and with just a 10 minute journey from Glasgow it will not be the last. Just a short walk from the train station it is still secluded enough to have the volume shaking the walls. They have a great back line and for the size of the place and some brilliant lighting. I would...

DOYLE WOLFGANG VON FRANKENSTEIN’S TOUR

  BIRMINGHAM, UK – MAMA ROUX DOYLE WOLFGANG VON FRANKENSTEIN’S TOUR ‹ › × × Previous Next Flickr Album Gallery Powered By: Weblizar Doyle @ Glasgow,Audio Doyle @ Audio, Glasgow Misfits monster Doyle hits the Uk for his first ever solo tour over here so as you can imagine there was a huge amount of interest and some really annoying fans. Before we got to the legend himself we had Manchester based band The Dead X111 and boy did they put in a storming set. I have caught this band live a few times in this city and they never fail to provide anything less than a top class show. The boys are doing the full UK tour so if you get...

Glenn Hughes/ Stone Broken @ The Garage Glasgow Jan29

Glenn Hughes/ Stone Broken @ The Garage Glasgow

Glenn Hughes/ Stone Broken @ The Garage Glasgow It is a huge night in Glasgow for gigs, there are 4 top class acts playing with probably the biggest the farewell from Black Sabbath. That was always going to hit numbers tonight especially as this was the rescheduled gig from last year. Tonight was a matter of allegiances for me, I have done many Sabbath gigs and I was one of those idiots who went to the last farewell tour. No, this was an easy choice, Glenn always performs at the top of his game and with a support as good as Stone Broken there was no question where I would end up. Are there still people out there who do not know how fucking...

Nashville Pussy The Crauford Arms in Milton Keynes Jan28

Nashville Pussy The Crauford Arms in Milton Keynes

So tonight I’m photographing at The Crauford Arms in Milton Keynes. Is actually a decent sized pub quite a few punters in already so looks as though the gig is going to be quite substantial? I’m really looking forward to tonight. First up we have Long John and The Killer Blues Collective, followed by followed by Desert Storm, and ending the night in from The US, the headliner act, the aptly named Nashville Pussy who I’m really quite looking forward to hearing. It’s my first night down at Crauford arms and it looks as though it might become a regular as I have such a good lineup including the Lioness Amy Winehouse...

Cerebral scar gig at the king billy rock bar in Northampton. This is the busiest I’ve seen the king billy, and Friday night, end of the month, it should be. On the bill tonight, a launch party for Northampton band Cerebral Scar, who are joined by Haema and Iron Grave. The lighting in The King Billy is challenging, and the stage is tucked away into a corner. Indeed this is the second time I’ve photographed here. The rumours of a new improved stage and lighting are yet to come to fruition. That said, the following here is loyal and the punters really enjoy this venue where many perform, so I fiddle around with the camera settings,...

  Joanne Shaw Taylor/ Broken Witt Rebels @ 02 ABC Glasgow The Joanne Shaw Taylor bandwagon rolls into Glasgow. The woman is finally getting the attention she deserves as the venue this year is much bigger, the crowd much rowdier and the place is packed for what was to be an amazing set by both bands. After missing them numerous times last year I finally got to see the Broken Witt Rebels take to a stage and ignite an audience. After their set that night I swore I would not miss them again in this city and so I was there front and centre and glad that there was not much time between gigs. This band stands out in a pot of talent that is...

  Single By Sunday/ Miami Monroe/ Altered Sky @ 02 ABC Glasgow Well it is first gig of the year time and if you like your Pop/Punk there is no better place to be than Glasgow. This is a showcase for Scottish bands all on the one stage and it drew in old and young alike. First up were Altered Sky who finished the year off in style with an amazing headliner set at the nearby Garage. It Was a fitting end to a brilliant year for the band who are turning heads and finally getting some breaks. The band brought a huge number of their own fans tonight who just wanted to see them irrespective of the length of their set being third from last on....

Silver Dust – Homecoming at Le Royal, Tavannes CH...

  Silver Dust – Homecoming at Le Royal, Tavannes CH This was the first time I had seen the full show from Silver Dust with complete theatrics – as it was cut down so much for the European tour with Lordi – so it seems only fitting to go to their home country of Switzerland to see the whole she-bang. And it could not have been more perfect. During the tour with Lordi, Silver Dust immediately caught my attention – along with many other peoples’ attention too. Even with their abridged theatrical show, they were still able to blow the doors and roofs off of each venue they attended in the UK, every show I was present at. The...

Geoff Tate Acoustic @ The Cathouse Glasgow Jan13

Geoff Tate Acoustic @ The Cathouse Glasgow

  Geoff Tate Acoustic @ The Cathouse Glasgow At the tail end of 2016 as everyone was frantically purchasing tickets for all the big shows this year I was impatiently pacing back and forth waiting for this gig. The moment it was announced it was in my diary as sometimes you just know how good a show you are going to get. On the night things were running a bit behind schedule and although this gave punters a chance to hear the sound check it unfortunately dug into the time allocated to support The Mark Daly Band. This was a real shame as the band played out of their skin with their rocked up Country/ Indie acoustic sounds. For a band...

  Popular Irish Indie band,Penrose supported Aslan in the first of their 3 sold out shows in Vicar Street on the 27th December. 2016 has been a good year for Penrose,with a Festival performance at Sea Sessions in Donegal,2 Tours in the UK,and to round off the year nicely,supporting Irish giants,Aslan at one of their sold-out Vicar Street gigs. Definetely ones to watch for 2017. When Penrose arrived on stage ,Vicar Street was already filling up. Aslan’s die-hard fanbase weren’t about to miss out on anything. Penrose didn’t disappoint.Even though lead singer,Darragh Mc Crane was suffering from a sore throat.it didn’t show,and the lads...
