CD Review: Luke Hirst - Rock n Roll Begins At Home
Bradford singer songwriter Luke Hirst specialises in the sort of no frills, pop-infused indie-rock songs that we don't seem to see much of anymore, what with 90% of popular acts either being a band, or a female solo artist (ala Lilly Allen, Amy Winehouse, Duffy etc.) Consequently, it's debatable whether Luke Hirst's new EP 'Rock n Roll Begins At Home' will find a ready audience, but that's no comment on its quality. | 516 hits

CD Review: The Gaslight Anthem - Great Expectations
'Great Expectations' is another cut from The Gaslight Anthem's second album, 'The '59 Sound.' What's refreshing about 'Great Expectations' is how it eschews every trend, past and present, to deliver straightforward rock that's understated in every way: there's no sing along chorus, no obvious hooks and no nods towards any obsessively divided musical sub-genre. | 451 hits
Live Review: Don Broco + Mallory Knox + Hey Vanity
In less than six months, Don Broco have gone from being the opening act under Lower Than Atlantis at The Cockpit, to completely selling out the same room. | 636 hits
Live Review: Inertia + Everlasting
Leeds' youngsters Inertia played to a decently sized audience at the Fenton on what was a gloomy Saturday night. | 407 hits
Live Review: Prodigy
Having been subjected to Prodigy's albums being blasted from the Common Room stereo in my 6th Form days it's fair to say I never connected with their music until I first witnessed them live. | 598 hits
Live Review: Junior Senior
No support bands for this gig. The tickets stated "note early gig". And Junior Senior weren't on stage till past nine. | 281 hits
CD Review: The Pablos - The Pablos
For all its foot-stomping, head-nodding immediacy, The Pablos' self-titled EP fails to provide a real lasting impression. | 692 hits
Live Review: The Hayze
Did you hear the one about an unknown band from Teesside, the guy who runs a Smiths night and the room upstairs in The Fenton? | 604 hits
CD Review: Alistair Sheerin - Animal Farm Sessions

It was the first Bad Sneakers of the new term and things got off to a riotous start with Leeds scenos-a-plenty heading down to check out this evening's musical talent. | 603 hits
CD Review: Meat Puppets - Lollipop
With its psychedelic cover and random accompanying videos, you would think this latest album from Meat Puppets was a little "out there" like some of their earlier recordings, but this is a catchy, smooth selection of music. | 491 hits
Live Review: Kings of Leon
If anyone doubted the Kings of Leon's credentials as a Main Stage headliner then by the end of this storming set the band had shut up the naysayers. | 3,707 hits
Band Profile: Duncan McFarlane
Duncan McFarlane has played folk festivals, clubs and folk-venues all across the UK, France and Denmark as a solo artist (as well as with his folk-rock six-piece band 'The Duncan McFarlane Band, his acoustic trio and as a duo with fiddler Anne Brivonese). | 402 hits

Live Review: Unclejohnny + Vatican Jet + Spitfire Charlie + Silverlode
Every time I go to the Packhorse, Leeds seems to be in the middle of a hurricane or similar. The walk from the city centre up to Hyde Park is a blustery and soaking one, but once inside things start to pick up immensely, with one of the most impressive local lineups at the venue in some time. | 1,037 hits
CD Review: Lou Barlow - Holding Back the Year
About to embark, or currently on - depending on when you read this - a pretty miniscule tour of the UK is alt rock granddaddy Lou Barlow. | 454 hits
Live Review: Fight Like Apes
If Saturday was to be the day for rock and metal, with screeching guitar solos aplenty, then Fight Like Apes and their guitar-less presence provided the perfect antidote during their Friday slot on the Festival Republic stage. | 541 hits
Live Review: Sugarvalve + Helen + Inertia
Tonight's gig at the increasingly popular Rocket venue again showed the diversity of talent playing in Leeds at present. | 387 hits
Live Review: Jaws + The Reacharounds + Soulmates Never Die
First up at the Oporto are Soulmates Never Die. Before they even take to the stage the small venue was jammed full of people and anticipation for a band to take to the stage was high. | 415 hits
Live Review: The Ebb + Boabak Cut + Charly Six
I remember the days when Charly Six were Brass Monkey and I was interested to see what they would be like after all this time. | 477 hits
CD Review: Charlotte Hatherley - Summer
After arriving home from my brief holiday in Iceland, it's ironic to find a song about summer waiting on my doorstep. | 616 hits
Live Review: The Downfall + Diawara + OFM + Imodiom
First up tonight are Imodiom; to say the least they are unprepared. After an unsure start the set quickly went downhill. | 422 hits
Live Review: Ludes + Vatican Jet
Good old rock and roll that's what Vatican Jet dish out! Apparently standing in for Being 747, these lads did a great job! | 754 hits
CD Review: Stephen Dale Petit - Guitararama
Even for willing listeners this album may challenge sustained concentration, but it's not short of highlights, and has real momentum on opening in quintessential electric blues style with 'Sacramento' and 'Alexis Korner Says'. | 1,494 hits
CD Review: Cypress Hill - What's Your Number
I bet the remaining members of The Clash are laughing their asses off on a regular basis. Not only do they still have an army of loyal fans after all this time, but pretty much all their more groovy stuff gets sampled. | 2,123 hits
CD Review: Dolores - Untitled
I'm intrigued. Track three on this CD is called 'Reykjavik 101', which is a sort of name check of one of my favourite films ever. | 564 hits
Live Review: Secret Circuits + Echodeck + Tiny Giants + Airspiel
Every Friday night, the Elbow Room presents 'Form'. The night at the Pool Club that often showcases local bands. | 892 hits
Live Review: The Hives + The Blues Explosion + The D4
The searing heat inside the Refectory is only made more intolerable by the 5 minute fire alarm that kicks the night off. | 1,027 hits
Live Review: Broohaha + Outside Asylum + Origami Bullets + Further From The Truth
There's an eclectic line up for tonight, as four bands take to the stage for a special bank holiday edition of the 360 Club. | 1,044 hits
Live Review: Dune + Monster Killed By Laser + The Wub
Dune, Monster Killed By Laser, The Wub Leeds, Temple of Boom September 20th 2014 It's always a joy going to Temple of Boom, and, it's usually a different setting every time as well. | 778 hits
Live Review: Apollo's Basement + The Creeks + Empire Safari + Martin Plock
A bluesy start to tonight's proceedings from the brave Martin Plock. Brave for several reasons: Firstly, it's a tough ask to start off a night with nothing but a guitar and microphone for company. | 1,009 hits
Live Review: Stiff Little Fingers
Stiff Little Fingers in Holmfirth? The sound of tinkling tea cups shattered by Belfast power chords? Mohicans mixing with the blue rinse brigade? | 652 hits
Live Review: Snow Patrol + Astrid + Terra Diablo
Venues with pillars are shit. Especially big huge stone ones a few feet square. That aside, the Blank Canvas is a rather cool venue and seems to be increasingly used. | 911 hits
Live Review: Kenosha
The Royal Park Cellars were decked out very differently tonight from how I have seen them previously. | 292 hits
Live Review: Northern Torch + I, Said The Spy + Ashe Vendetta + Ashwin Thomas
Tonight as part of Leeds Fringe local band Northern Torch have taken over the upstairs room at Milo in order to put on a night of their favourite unsigned artists in support of two good causes; the Leeds music scene and the Martin House Children's Hospice. | 642 hits
Live Review: Break Out Lucille + The Blind Dead McJones Band + Diego Snail + Kath and the Mighty Menace
Kath and the Mighty Menace provide a powerful start to another sold out 360 Club at the Library. Their dynamic rock/pop is energetic and raucous as they prove that acoustic guitar based bands don't have to be dreary. | 912 hits
CD Review: Ali Whitton and the Broke Record Players - A Failed Attempt At Something Worth Saying
What have we got here then? Thoughtful acoustic pop, I'd say, and done to a pretty fair standard - from Whitton's lyrics sung in his quite striking voice with its often pleading tone, through to arrangements well handled by the Broke Record Players. | 697 hits
Live Review: Brody + Sugarvalve + Final Conclusion
FINAL CONCLUSION - This was the fifth viewing of Final Conclusion for me and possibly the most powerful time I had seen them. | 434 hits
Live Review: Westport
A Swedish hitchhiker near York asked if I played a musical instrument and when the answer was no he told me he was returning from Ireland. | 587 hits
Live Review: The Fratellis
The good news for fans of The Fratellis is that after five years away the Scottish three-piece (here augmented by a keyboardist) can still draw a sizeable crowd to the O2 Academy despite the fact that during their extended hiatus their brand of perky indie-pop has rather fallen out of fashion as shoegaze and nu-grunge have taken over. | 586 hits
Live Review: New Minds Eye + Sarah Lawton + I Love Poland + O Fracas
Coming to gigs by yourself is never a lot of fun, but thanks to the army of apathetic student types that I call friends all wimping out, I'm here on my own. | 1,541 hits
CD Review: Daybreakers - The Dawn Approaches
The debut EP from Leeds based Daybreakers makes liberal use of a jazz triple-header of trombone, trumpet and saxophone, in addition to the usual guitars and drums. | 552 hits
Feature: The StrangeForms Interviews: Waking Aida
Stewart from Bad Owl Presents chatted with Waking Aida guitarist, James C, in the lead up to the band's StrangeForms appearance. | 508 hits
CD Review: A Plastic Rose - Boy Racer
With a brief check of the guitar, the song bursts into life, with a massive snare drum fill and the heaviest distortion tone the band can muster. | 268 hits
Live Review: Scars On 45 + China Rats + Likely Lads
Local four-piece Likely Lads drew a hefty crowd, kicking off the weekend in a great fashion. The band's large following was justified by a huge boisterous intro, displaying a compromise between glimmering indie and gritty punk. | 677 hits
Live Review: Zombina and the Skeletones + Eighty Six + All Its Worth
I would like to start by saying that I wasn't going to do a review for this gig when I went, but in the Bassment they have these new drinks called 'Vodka Mudshakes'. | 681 hits
Live Review: Fall Out Boy + Spitalfield + My Awesome Compilation
"Welcome" - a sign should state on the door "Welcome to the parade of terrible band names". Never has a bill seen a more dastardly set of band names since Butthole Surfers, Anal Beard and British Sea Power may or may not have appeared together. | 2,650 hits
Live Review: Rent + Steer + Xi + Tim Canfer
Often, during times of contemplation (for which read: "hangovers") I wonder what the point of music actually is. | 802 hits
Live Review: Miranda Versus The Crok + Arthur Rigby & The Baskervylles + Hunting Bears + Tag-Team Preacher
Tag-Team Preacher open the sold out 360 night with an energetic feel good set sounding at times like the illicit lovechild of the Manic Street Preachers and Alison Krauss. | 741 hits
Live Review: Bloc Party + Hungry Ghosts + Los Campesinos! + The Ting Tings + Editors + The Last People On Earth + The Subways + The Automatic + The Blackout
The last day of the festival. It threw it down on Saturday Night but when The Blackout came to the main stage, they had a little battle with the elements. | 894 hits
Live Review: Decibels in Bloom + Termite + New Portlands
Over the last few years, it seems Huddersfield has been awash with young indie bands, complete with converse trainers and spiky guitars, following bright eyed in the wake of a trail blazed by local contemporaries, most notably Arctic Monkeys and The Cribs. | 966 hits
CD Review: Kaiser Chiefs - Employment
It's the big one, folks. It's finally here and it's been given to me. On a first listen, it's like being reminded of watching those live shows from a year or so ago. | 3,152 hits
CD Review: Last Temple Orchestra - Untitled
The debut EP from Leeds' Last Temple Orchestra begins in promising fashion, with the excellent 'Inside.' Its spring-heeled drums are tempered by echoey chords, giving it an interestingly ethereal edge. | 504 hits
CD Review: Sound Of Guns - What Came From Fire
There's something vaguely Snow Patrol-esque about the general aura of earnestness and feeling that enshrouds Sound of Guns' debut full-length. | 2,090 hits
Interview: Daniel Fell
As lead singer, main songwriter and all around head honcho of The Argonauts, Daniel Fell is now going solo. He's playing in Leeds at Carpe Diem on the 12th February, so Gavin Miller caught up with the man himself to have a little chat about all things musical... | 1,325 hits
CD Review: Little Fish - Baffled and Beat
Little Fish's debut album is a mixed affair, consisting of quirky indie rock 'n roll that oozes laidback cool, and barebones, repetitive songs that feel constrained by Little Fish's two-member head count. | 1,515 hits
Live Review: The Breech + Silvertin + Snipereyes + The Pigeon Detectives
The crowd gather nervously near the back of the room as The Pigeon Detectives open up the evening's musical jamboree. | 2,377 hits
Live Review: Down Radio + Rawschac + Terra-ist + Strangers In Paradise
Strangers In Paradise Strangers in Paradise kicked off proceedings for the 360 Club special at the HiFi Club, with a simple friendly greeting the band immediately went straight into their first track, an heavy number with a grunge rock n roll feel to it. | 1,050 hits
Live Review: The Damned + Viv Albertine
"I'm having peanuts for dinner," said Captain Sensible as we talked to him by the merchandise stand. "Motorhead was a great tour because they travel with two caterers and feed all the support bands." He then apologised for spraying us with peanuts as he chatted. | 786 hits
Live Review: Foreign Office + Humanfly + Kassidy + James Blake + Tall Ships + We Are Losers + The Marmozets
Given glorious weather on the day it seemed a perfect setting for a full day of live music. Granted that a lot of people's attention were on the previous day's events, some lucky ones ventured out for what would be an excellent day. | 1,067 hits
CD Review: Lethargy - Purification
Classic rock seems to be enjoying a bit of a resurgence as of late and, if this continues, then Welsh four-piece Lethargy are definitely in the running for a piece of the action with their second full length, 'Purification.' Album opener 'Stealth' is a poised and polished statement of intent, its dark chug overlaid with plenty of classy riffing and a cocksure, rock and roll swagger. | 722 hits
Feature: Salvation - 30th Anniversary
Salvation are one of the bands to come out of Leeds music scene's most diverse and prolific periods, the early to mid 80s. We caught up with vocalist Danny Mass (DM) and guitarist Ben Farvak (BF) at Heart Café, which sits at the center of LS6 the spiritual home of many of the bands from that period. | 1,039 hits
Live Review: Yannick + The Campfires + The Seagulls + Little Victories
At least once a week, 'The Library' pub based in Leeds plays host to the music event known as the '360 Club'. | 784 hits
Live Review: Tame Impala + Johnny Marr + Mausi + Saint Raymond + Theory 59
Sunday fortunately brings better weather but, paradoxically, worse mud, not that this dampens the atmosphere, which is abuzz at the thought of Eminem closing the festival. | 659 hits
CD Review: The Durbervilles - Alternative Route to All Destinations
The Durbervilles have returned to prominence with their radio show (Sundays 2pm, BBC Leeds) and with the release of their overdue third album Alternative Route To All Destinations - a phrase with meanings zipping about in it like a pinball, scoring points on Alt Country and a few more on Folk Roots, against a colourful background of the band's wanderings since their previous collection three years ago. | 770 hits
CD Review: Various Artists - Showcase: West Yorkshire SXSW 2007
'This town is in disarray' claims the opening track from this sampler, but clearly not in a bad way. As an album it may suffer from being a hotchpotch of radically different offerings from local record labels, but I'd be surprised if any unwitting industry mogul - into whose hand this disc may have been thrust at the recent SXSW festival, and who actually took the time to give it a spin - failed to diagnose a clean bill of health for the current Leeds scene. | 934 hits
Live Review: Nerve Engine + Rise To Addiction
Another Saturday, once again striving for that elusive intimate gig, the night that blows all the others out of the water, the Leeds hard rock fraternity, raise two fingers defiantly toward its heavily subscribed, yet vastly popular indie scene, and turn out in force to the one place they feel at home. | 562 hits
CD Review: Merchandise - For The Masses
Merchandise's 'For The Masses' album is refreshingly laidback indie-pop with plenty of good old fashioned, twee charm. | 701 hits
Interview: The Mission - An interview with Simon Hinkler
The Mission join up with Fields of the Nephilim for their Revaltions tour. We caught up with Simon Hinkler to see what is going on in the world of T'Mish | 1,507 hits
CD Review: Elliot Minor - Solaris
The overall impression of Elliot Minor's sophomore effort, is that they've taken it down a notch in order to concentrate on melding their classical flourishes and rock guitars into a more coherent whole. | 978 hits
CD Review: Various Artists - Still Occupied Though Your Forget
Leeds-based independent record label Dance To The Radio turns five this year, and to celebrate they're releasing a compilation featuring acts who appeared on the first Dance To The Radio Release (namely The Sunshine Underground and I Like Trains) alongside some of the newer acts on Dance To The Radio's roster. | 858 hits
Live Review: Nero + White Lies + Maverick Sabre + Hard-Fi + Katzenjammer + Tom Savage & The Hash Mafia + King Charles + The Pigeon Detectives + Jake Bugg + The Jim Jones Revue + Martha Reeves + Skinny Lister + Kids In Glass Houses
Bingley Music Live descends into Bingley town the first weekend in September and has been doing so since 2007, but before that Myrtle Park has played host to a musical events for the past 21 years. | 836 hits
CD Review: I Hate Kate - Embrace The Curse
Contrary to its gothic title, album-opener 'Bed of Black Roses' is a giddy blend of breakneck punk riffs and fizzy electro beats that sets the tone for I Hate Kate's début album 'Embrace The Curse.' Frontman Justin Mauriello, former vocalist of Zebrahead, has the perfect voice for this brand of helter-skelter pop-punk, his strident-edged vocals cutting clearly over even 'Bed of Black Roses' raucous punk chorus. | 950 hits
Live Review: Chase & Status
Bass-driven, breakbeat-Brits, Chase & Status brought their mammoth, dance-rock spectacular to a cosy O2 Academy on a chilly Monday night. | 532 hits
News Article: Bright Young Things 2008: the 15 successful bands are revealed
Following an intense two-day judging process, the fifteen successful acts for Bright Young Things 2008 have been announced today. | 2,459 hits
Live Review: Penguin + Reverend And The Makers + The Whip + King Charles + Skint & Demoralised + Chris Helme + Redwire + The Glass Caves
This was a festival debut for Crooked Ways at Pontefract Park and a cracking line up for the day's event. | 847 hits
Live Review: The Pigeon Detectives + Charlie Straw + The Glass Caves + Dancing Years + Hunting Bears
Live at Leeds as ever presented a multitude of possible routes but part of me wishes I'd followed my instincts and simply flitted between the two rooms in The Cockpit. | 864 hits
CD Review: Charlotte Gainsbourg - IRM
'IRM' by Charlotte Gainsbourg is a strange album. Initially, it won't elicit much - or possibly - any reaction from you but, after a few listens, you'll be wondering how you ever managed to resist Gainsbourg's whimsical charms. | 748 hits
Live Review: Foo Fighters + Arcade Fire + Rise Against + Hot Hot Heat + The Kills + Dogs + Arctic Monkeys + Million Dead + Nine Black Alps + The Explosion + Senses Fail + Editors
Sunday started like any other day. Apart from this Sunday I happened to wake up in a field with 30 odd thousand other bear soaked, bleary eyed, unwashed, desperate bladder controlling festival revellers. | 3,051 hits
Interview: Thunder
Victoria Holdsworth spoke to Luke Morley from Thunder before another sell out gig in Sheffield. | 1,670 hits
Live Review: The Mexanines + British Daylight + PaperPlane + Indecisive Crisis + Another Life + The Artists + Inlaze + The Scandal + Traffic Wire + Distorted Sky + Euthemia + Seas-Of-Green + Glassbody
In the middle of April this year, just over thirty bands competed in the heats of the third year of the Centre Stage competition, where bands compete whilst raising gratuitous amounts of cash for a well-deserving cause in Martin House Children's Hospice. | 1,259 hits
