Catfish @ Nice’N’Sleazys, Glasgow Jan26

Catfish @ Nice’N’Sleazys, Glasgow

  Catfish @ Nice’N’Sleazys, Glasgow   Glasgow tonight was a snowy waste land and although the blizzard may have had an effect on the punters through the door there was no way I was missing this show. It is not very often I get recommendations I have not heard of but when I clocked about 30 seconds of a Youtube video I was hooked. I may be a rocker right down to my pores but I love my blues and man did this band tick all those boxes. I actually got in early despite the weather to find the band relaxing and what a lovely bunch of guys(and the lovely merch lady). They may have been relaxed offstage but when they stepped onto that...

The Temperance Movement bare all on A Deeper Cut

ALBUM REVIEW: The Temperance Movement bare all on A Deeper Cut IT’S a rare band that exposes all their problems in public, let alone open their hearts in songs – yet The Temperance Movement have done that on their latest release ‘A Deeper Cut’. They have produced a set of tracks that sum up the journey of the band – melancholic and triumphant. For many The Temperance Movement were in the past a Marmite band – you either loved them or walked away. But on ‘A Deeper Cut’ they have exposed every heartache, every travail and every pain. It could be that is what makes this a remarkable rock album....

  Operation Mindcrime 30th Anniversary, The Garage, Glasgow Shock City productions steps out of Scotland and what a way to do it. They brought the tour that marks the 30th anniversary of this iconic album to the masses. England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland got to witness what could very well be the gig of the year. Now the support for the whole tour was Till Death Do Us Part and I am sure this raised a few eyebrows. Lots of moaning about stars and family members but for us north of the border we are well aware of the talent within this band. Yes, the singer is Emily Tate and apart from the fact father and daughter have incredible...

Steel Panther and Wayward Sons in Belfast

  A cold January night was no match for the pulling power of Steel Panther and Wayward Sons, who rocked up to the Limelight, Belfast. The Limelight was packed in anticipation for a very special evening of some of the greatest heavy metal filled adolescent toilet humour this side of the Lagan. First on the stage was Toby Jepson’s Wayward Sons and, boy, did they do themselves proud. Nailing every song with vigour and rock and roll panache. Kicking it all off, they soared into ‘Alive’, ‘Ghost’, and ‘Don’t Wanna Go’. The energy of the band radiated right across the Limelight. These guys knew how to rock out. Toby’s vocals belting out...
