Anarchic rockabilly beloved by the late John Peel. "If Elvis had been a Marx Brother, he would have invented Pink Peg Slax" (James Brown, NME) With a name derived from an obscure Eddie Cochran rocker, Pink Peg Slax promise rockabilly revivalism, but these veterans of the Leeds 80s music scene deliver musical subversion. | 921 hits

CD Review: Nex - Secrets & Lies
Punk Metal, a bass player who chooses to go by the name The Professional (but looks like a nerd) and a drummer who wears a black vest - quite frankly the review could end right here! | 550 hits

CD Review: The Somatics - Lemonade

Live Review: Chevron + Lorimer + OFM + Five Years Later
Wandering into McDermotts on Saturday night I noticed that tonight held the promise of music. Four bands whose apparent self-proclaimed musical leanings sounded tempting (if beer mat flyers are to be believed). | 502 hits

CD Review: The Forgotten Cowboy - Untitled
Slices of indie, heaps of raw callous vocals and an excitable scattering of computer shenanigans are the makeup behind this truly unique outing from Widnes based loon The Forgotten Cowboy, Pseudonym Dilbert Chesterton. | 425 hits

CD Review: Quack Quack - Mars / The Great Catsby

Live Review: Kurtis Blow + Furious Five
'you say one for the trouble, two for the time...' We hear new music all the time, but most of the time, of course, it's not new, it's a fresh take on familiar themes, or a little bit louder and faster than the known. | 762 hits

Live Review: Herman Dune
I think the year was 2001 when I turned on the radio and heard the late John Peel introduce a Paris-based Swiss/Swedish trio of David, Andre and Neman Herman Dune singing songs such as "How Things Slide" and "Lazy Boys (Don't Stand A Chance)" Five years later, after not listening to Herman Dune for a while I was happy to hear that they would be playing a gig at the Brudenell Social Club. | 739 hits

CD Review: Lorimer - Repeat Offender
So, they're good enough for John Peel, then. Still, he's not that fussy, is he? Let's face it, an hour of obscure euro punk and you start reaching for Radio 2 before seizures set in half the time - or is that just me? | 391 hits
CD Review: The Undertones - True Confessions (Singles = A's + B's)
Let's not delay in stating the obvious; The Undertones were, and indeed are, a fantastic band, whose influence lives on to this day; you can hear echoes of their early pop-punk work in any number of bands today. | 544 hits

Interview: Amsterdam

Live Review: Bilge Pump + David Thomas Broughton + Dungeon Dungeon

Live Review: T-Model Ford + David Broad + Serious Sam Barrett
The 300 people having a good time at the Faversham (and paying good money) weren't going to worry over whether it was in response to a cultural phenomenon or a truly musical experience, as the avowedly 83-year old T-Model [James Lewis Carter Ford] Ford sat before them. | 985 hits

CD Review: The Wedding Present - Valentina
My earliest connection with Leeds goes back to discovering The Wedding Present some twenty odd years ago. | 794 hits
CD Review: Spring - Circle Cake
Spring have a smooth rock style that has not been much heard in the last twenty five years. Punk - first from America and then in its nastier English variant made it as good as compulsory to throw some tasty venom into each and every musical cake you could bake. | 864 hits
CD Review: Allusondrugs - Allusondrugs EP
Allusondrugs formed in Castleford in 2012, recorded this EP in January 2014 (at Greenmount Studios in Armley, Leeds), but have been very busy out and about on the road in the lead up to this coming out. | 1,057 hits

Live Review: Lightning Bolt + Bilge Pump + Wolves! (of Greece) + Like a Kind of Matador

Live Review: Clinic + JJ72 + The Delgados
A good crowd turned up for tonight's free Barfly sessions gig but there was plenty of room and it could have been promoted a little bit better because many of the genuine fans who would have paid to see these bands knew nothing of it. | 479 hits

CD Review: Cardiacs - Concerts Vol I & II
I give you fair warning.  I am about to break the ancient, time-honoured and globally respected code of the International Covenant of Authors, Note-Takers, Writers, Reviewers, Interviewers, Talkers and Editors (or ICANTWRITE for short) covering the critique of musical releases and/or performances on precisely 2 counts.  In fact one of these has already been broken.  So apologies if this warning comes too late in the day and has already caused you unnecessary distress. | 824 hits
