  Sittingbourne U18 v Ramsgate U18 Woodstock April 30th, 2017 As the Sittingbourne players walked out of the dressing room alongside today’s rivals, Ramsgate, they knew that only a win would see them crowned as winners of the U18 Kent Youth League, Premier Division South. They came out...

Stoneface @ The Cathouse, Glasgow

  Stoneface @ The Cathouse, Glasgow I have been looking forward to this one for some time. The boys(did I really just call them boys?) have done the hard graft in this business for a long time and due to that you never get an under par performance. Before we got to the headliners there were a couple of support bands tonight which had to be whipped up quickly as the previously booked bands couldn’t make it or just decided Glasgow was far too scary so decided to break up before this show. Unfortunately I only caught the openers as they finished off their set so I am afraid I cannot comment on Black King Kobra who had only performed a few...

Marvellous Mo and the Back Line Ferrets

  Marvellous Mo and the Back Line Ferrets A Brief Glimpse into the history of… Four years ago, a group of six friends, all with a lifelong interest in music, got together to play as a one-off gig at a charity function. That one-off was the start of an ever-growing list of dates and venues, and including repeats now means that from a creditable twelve gigs in first year to now at least thirty… and the number is rising. Although primarily based in the Sittingbourne area of Kent they cover most of the county, they have been seen even further afield, notably the north of the country and even in Scotland, and there is even a rumour that...

  Album review: Mish – Entheogen Review by Craig Grant. Ok, let’s get the obvious question out of the way. An Entheogen is a, ‘psychoactive substance used in a religious, shamanic, or spiritual contexts’. Funny then that when I hear the phrase ‘Mish’ it takes me back to the days leaving...

  Live Review: – The Darkness @ the Groovin’ Festival in Adelaide Photos: Maddi Baj and Review by Kirsten Grant: – Groovin’ the Moo is a festival that got its name because it started out in the rural paddocks across Australia until this year where it’s being held a stone’s throw from the Adelaide CBD. It’s eclectic and over the years we’ve all had the opportunity to hear some music that we wouldn’t normally get a chance to at the same gig. Don’t like Wolfmother then give it a couple of minutes before we get some Northlane and then some Hilltop Hoods. A good crowd of about 18,000 are anticipating the arrival of The Darkness....

This is the reason I’m reviewing the Architects and The Wombats side by side, is to pay homage to this festival, which manages to bring together all sorts of genres. The Wombats...

LIVE REVIEW: LIne-up woes doesn’t stop Necrofest delivering As anyone either in a band or putting on a gig will tell you, it’s never fucking easy. Between unforeseen circumstances leading to Rabid Bitch Of The North having to pull out, an incident with the drummer from Horrenda being hospitalised in Dublin (get well soon!) and Cursed Sun having arguably the worst luck ever, any promoter wouldn’t be blamed for pulling their hair out. Onwards we march. The dubious honor of opening what remains a stacked bill falls on Indominus, a relatively new death metal band risen from the ashes of Forchristsake. Much tighter and better...

ALBUM REVIEW: Dead Daisies capture the energy on Live and Louder THE problem reviewing live albums when you are “of a certain age” is the temptation to draw comparisons with the classics like UFO’s Strangers In The Night, MSG’s Live at Budokan and Iron Maiden’s Live After Death. A live...

LIVE REVIEW: Massive party night at the Diamond with Gasoline Outlaws and Massive Wagons PACKED Diamond Rock Club? Check. Enough trade over the bar to bring a glint of joy to brewery owners’ eyes? Check. Band t-shirts worn loud and proud? Check. Two bands pumping out no fucking about hard ass rock ‘n’ roll? Check. All systems were go on Saturday (April 22nd) at the Diamond Rock club for the return of Massive Wagons, with local heroes Gasoline Outlaws set to pour fuel on to the fire of rock in our hearts. Indeed the Outlaws were making their own return to the live circuit, with new tracks and obvious serious rehearsal time...

The Sundowners, Think Tank, Newcastle, 26.04.2017

  The Sundowners, Think Tank, Newcastle, 26.04.2017 I have often been told that I need to broaden my music taste, my kids tell me I am stuck in the 70’s and 80’s listening to Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Motorhead etc.’ Get out and hear some new young bands’ they say. So I did. The Sundowners are a quintet of 20+something year olds that are already on their 2nd album entitled “Cut the Master” and on the same entitled UK tour. They have already toured with the likes of Kasabian and Paul Weller, 2 of the biggest names in music. Hailing from Merseyside you might expect to hear similar sounds from The Beatles, Cilla Black,...

FAVERSHAM TOWN – HOME / RYMAN LEAGUE DIV 1 S...

  It started with dramatic late goals and it was fitting that the season – at home, anyway – should finish with yet another one. Substitute Keanu Williams got the 90th minute winner to cap a superb Sittingbourne fightback which overcame local rivals Faversham. It gave Sittingbourne their highest points total for eight seasons – with one more game still to go – and in front of their second biggest home crowd of the season. Not only did the match finish in style for Sittingbourne, but what followed immediately afterwards was just as memorable in its own way. Both manager Nick Davis and captain Jono Richardson brought their young children...

Joe Bonamassa, Live At The Usher Hall Edinburgh 18/04/17  It’s been 4 years since Blues/Rock superstar Joe Bonamassa last played in Scotland’s capital, but he’s been far from idle in that time. Without a doubt one of the hardest working men in music, he tours relentlessly, yet somehow finds time to participate in a myriad of other projects: From backing soul singers such as Beth Hart and Mahalia Barnes to his funk/rock supergroup Rock Candy Funk Party, he’s even had a recent studio reunion with Glenn Hughes, Derek Sherninian and Jason Bonham to record Black Country Communion 4 – which is certainly one of the most anticipated rock releases...

Welcome to HRH Blues.

  Welcome to HRH Blues. Once again the HRH team have managed to get together some of the biggest names on the blues circuit worldwide and this year was extra special, there was going to be a second stage and even more bands to see for the loyal royalty fans and media people. Day 1 We kicked off with Dani Wilde with her collection of blues country and gospel tunes which got the early crowd clapping along and straight away everyone knew this was going to be one special festival. Next up were The Billy Walton band, a five piece from New Jersey complete with a jumping jiving saxophonist and a trumpet player and right from the start you...

Bigfoot @ Hard Rock Cafe, Glasgow

  Bigfoot @ Hard Rock Cafe, Glasgow Shock City Productions do it again, 3 cracking bands for a tenner meant that in a busy night for gigs in Glasgow this was definitely the best value for your money by a long shot. The night kicked off with local boys Anchor Lane who are probably the busiest band in Glasgow at the moment. They have been racking up the home town gigs and unlike the first time I saw them live they are now well known to the regular gig goers present tonight. Each gig sees this already tight unit impress me more and their confidence is growing in leaps and bounds. They burst into “ Twenty Sixteen” which is one of the...

The Qurieboys play The Diamond Rock Club

LIVE REVIEW: Too Much Of A Good Thing? Not when The Qurieboys play The Diamond Rock Club AUDIENCE drunk, band half-cut, PA booming out – all boxes ticked for The Quireboys playing the Diamond Rock Club – ‘This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll’ and this was rock ‘n’ rill in its finest, glorious excess. There is always a sense of occasion when Spike and co play, and the camaraderie between the band and the audience is no forced shenanigan, but is rather an intimacy that comes not from excessive adoration, but from a forged friendship rather than over familiarity. Getting the party started were the Last Great...

LIVE REVIEW: Thunder push through the time barrier...

LIVE REVIEW: Thunder push through the time barrier to deliver smooth rock excellence FOR some time Thunder have been the go to band for AOR music, with a back catalogue that stirs many a heart of those that recall their halcyon days of the band ass chart masters. And, they are still churning out albums chock full of songs with their trademark sound. Before Thunder took the stage on Friday (March 31st) there was the small matter of local heroes Trucker Diablo. However, whoever in their wisdom thought it was a good idea to open the doors as late as 8pm and then have the Big Truck start at 8:15 seems to have missed a trick. That meant that...
