High on Fire, Enslaved & Krakow 10th October ...

High on Fire, Enslaved & Krakow 10th October 2018 October 10th 2018, Limelight was the place to be as the local metalheads gathered in masses to witness what would truly be a show for the ages. First to take the stage were Bergen stoner metal four piece Krakow. High energy and high times were the order if the day as they hammered out catchy and undeniably heavy tunes much to the pleasure of the crowd. Mixing a solid blend of stoner metal, crushing doom and atmospheric Krakow got everyone pumped up. Their dual vocal approach was stunning, shifting between a lofty clean style to a more aggressive rugged tone. The entire set was great and...

Anathema @ Mackintosh Church, Glasgow Oct11

Anathema @ Mackintosh Church, Glasgow

  Anathema @ Mackintosh Church, Glasgow When Anathema come to town they know how to make it very special. You know the music is going to be beautiful but when they chose one of the most stunning buildings in Glasgow and fill it with their visually incredible screens and projected movies you will be in Awe. Tonight was my first time in this church, come venue. It is the last of the set for me as I have done every other church the city has to offer and I love each and every one for many different reasons. This venue did not disappoint either. For Glasgow it now holds a dual meaning as many will not know that Glasgow had a huge loss when...

Brian Downey’s Alive and Dangerous @ The Cathouse, Glasgow Oct11

Brian Downey’s Alive and Dangerous @ The Cathouse,...

  Brian Downey’s Alive and Dangerous @ The Cathouse, Glasgow Glasgow holds a special place in it’s heart for Thin Lizzy, From the cities very own Brian Robertson to the immortal moment Phil Lynott walked out onto that huge Glasgow Apollo stage with a Scotland football top and pronounced us champions. Brian Downey was a founder member and one hell of a drummer so all the naysayers can crawl under their rocks as this man has every right to bring forward his own incarnation of the most famous and loved of Irish bands. Before we got to the headliners we had support in Blue Nation and I think the guys will probably admit to having their...

Sons of Apollo @ The Garage, Glasgow Oct11

Sons of Apollo @ The Garage, Glasgow

Sons of Apollo @ The Garage, Glasgow A complete masterclass was served in Glasgow tonight. Like a magnificent buffet it was laid out with five courses named Portney ,Sheehan, Soto, Thal and Sherinian. The venue tonight was littered with Glasgow musicians from all manner of bands, all there to bow at the feet of absolute legends. I was in awe myself as these guys are all from my the book of music that is my past, present and future. All having their own chapters until tonight where they came together like a blockbuster movie. I did manage to see the band in one of their first European shows at Graspop this summer but they were on late, they...

Federal Charm/ The Bad Flowers/ Those Damn Crows Oct11

Federal Charm/ The Bad Flowers/ Those Damn Crows

Federal Charm/ The Bad Flowers/ Those Damn Crows @ Classic Grand, Glasgow What a triple bill of music rolled into Glasgow tonight. Three band that epitomises the resurgent talent throughout the UK. I will open with an honest statement, Those Damn Crows have been getting a lot of press recently and a lot of my friends from down south have been raving about them for some time…especially those from Wales but from the few listens I had I just wasn’t sure. Rather than put the band down I left it to my litmus test which never fails…the live environment. Bands I have loved on record have failed miserably through this but I am happy to...

Kriss Barras Band @ King Tuts, Glasgow Oct07

Kriss Barras Band @ King Tuts, Glasgow

Kriss Barras Band @ King Tuts, Glasgow After a lot of pleading, begging and eventual abuse on social media Kriss and the band have decided to come to Glasgow. I wonder if he thought it was worth it? For me it was certainly worth creating all those fake accounts and flooding him with the requests. The opening act tonight is Edinburgh’s Black Cat Bones. These boys are so good they should be selling out larger venues than this on their own. They are blues with a definite twist and with the voice of Ross Craig the only way they were going was Blues. His raspy tones accompanied by his harmonica and almost sludge sounding guitars and bass make...

Glenn Hughes was Getting Tighter at the Waterfront Hall Oct02

Glenn Hughes was Getting Tighter at the Waterfront...

Gig Review: Glenn Hughes was Getting Tighter at the Waterfront Hall Belfast   On a pleasant but cool evening a steady stream of rockers and metallers of all types and all ages flowed into the Waterfront Hall for a very special evening indeed. Tonight the legendary Glen Hughes was playing, not only that but this was a special event with Glenn playing Deep Purple! An opportunity definitely not to be missed. The tickets were originally standing but on arrival everyone was told it was now seated. This was slightly ominous. A rock gig with everyone seated? It has been done before and many of the iconic greats played to purely seated auditoriums,...

  Crazy Cowboy Festival 2. The Face Bar Reading, 22/09/18. Welcome to CC Festivals an event put on by the joint partnership STEPH-ALEC, the first one was in Wakefield and a much smaller bill than this was going to be, after the success of No 1 they decided to move it to its new home in Reading and this was going to a biggie! Two stages, no clashes, a food van, and a plethora of bands, many from the N.W.O.C.R. (New Wave of Classic Rock) stable, which is making its name heard all over the country. There were to be two stages: the big one the red room, and the smaller stage the blue room, which henceforth for this review will be called...
