CD Review: Ash - Tokyo Blitz
I have to admit that it's been almost six years since I last saw Ash live, since which they've been through the nightmare situation of trying to introduce a DJ to their live show as well as the successful introduction of second guitarist Charlotte Hatherley. | 606 hits

CD Review: Jim Noir - Eanie Meany

Band Profile: Kill All Enemies
Kill All Enemies was originally formed by Matt - Guitar/Lead Vocals, Auste - Lead Guitar, Calvin - Drums and Pete - Bass/Backing Vocals but due to musical differences and personal issues Calvin and Pete left Kill All Enemies, leaving Matt and Auste with no Bass or Drums. | 444 hits

Live Review: Of Montreal + The Rollercoaster Project
With the joyless chore of the Christmas shopping rush just a fortnight away, prepare yourself for the inevitable inaccuracies of every glossy music publication's conveniently-timed 'Best of 2005' lists, (it being an historical fact that record companies only release Greatest Hits packages in December). | 931 hits

"Please excuse us, it's very hot in these cravats" winks Yellow Stripe Nine's quirky keyboardist with a cheeky smile pinned haphazardly across his malleable face, tongue firmly slotted into cheek, twinkly eyes joking merrily along with all this talk of decadence, sleaze and spotless white spats. | 778 hits

CD Review: Cats and Cats and Cats - Motherwhale
When I first saw Cats and Cats and Cats live 3 years ago supporting Forward, Russia at The Cockpit I knew I'd found a band that I was going to love for life, I bought everything that they had brought out and have done to this day, so when the opportunity arose to review their latest release I jumped at the chance, and was not disappointed. | 443 hits

CD Review: The Darkness - One Way Ticket To Hell And Back
Don't get me wrong, I wanted to like this record. Like most rock fans wanting a break from the whole "distorted guitars and vocals which sound like the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street" schtick of yer Slipknots and Papa Roaches in 2003, I thought The Darkness were a breath of fresh air - a group with their eyes shamelessly set on selling out Wembley five nights in a row rather than just staring at their feet and being happy to be anchored to the toilet circuit. | 665 hits
Live Review: The Distillers + The Icarus Line + Eagles of Death Metal
It was cold, it was raining and I had to queue up for like half an hour to get in... but to be honest that's the only real negative of the night; well there is another but I'll get on to that soon enough... | 1,180 hits

Live Review: The Maccabees + The Hair
The Hair make me want to do reasonably mucky things to people. I think. I'm not sure. Either that or maybe find a partner to relive certain aspects of 'Dirty Dancing' with right there and then on the shiny wooden floorboards of The Faversham, except we'd incorporate more modern and perhaps more subtle dance moves whilst substituting those items of footwear now relegated to the depths of a chiropodist's hell with slightly more comfortable shoes. | 1,685 hits

Interview: Shy Child
Shy Child's rider consisted of beer, salsa and loads of meat. Proscuitto specifically, I think. I remember congratulating them on this selection of goods, although felt slightly on edge about the meat being left out in the heat for too long. After such small talk about meat, British supermarkets and why LCD Soundsystem are cool, I decided it was around about time start asking some proper questions, with the odd Elton John reference thrown in for luck... | 542 hits

CD Review: Guided by Voices - Human Amusement at Hourly Rates

CD Review: Various Artists - This Is The New (art/goes/pop sampler)

Interview: The Cast of Cheers
Last Wednesday, 29th February I was lucky enough to catch up with Cast of Cheers, four very charming and down to earth Irish lads. Greeted by smiles and handshakes the band introduced themselves before settling down in the upstairs backstage at the Cockpit. We chatted about their upcoming first European tour, living together and random music choices. All very different characters it became clear later on in the gig how they manage to successfully mix different genres of music together. | 799 hits
