Live Review: The Delamores
The Delamores' vocalist Lee never breaks sweat. He is an enigmatic, quiet man who prefers to leave the jocularities to jovial bassist Baz, who tonight is sporting a canny leopard print guitar.

CD Review: Casiokids - Kaskaden
If spring had decided to actually fulfil its seasonal commitments; instead of deciding that after a fleeting visit, it wasn't really worth the effort and sulking off to Europe, then the perfect post equinox soundtrack would've been the debut album, 'Aabenbaringen Over Aaskammen' from Norwegian synth-poppers - 'Casiokids'.

CD Review: Neils Children - Always the Same
Wow that's a sick guitar sound! Yet it pounds around my head picking up on each one of my senses. This is a crazy indie-punk number from Neils Children, sounding like The Futureheads mixed with Pistols-esque vocals yet they have their own unique psychedelic feel to the piece.

Live Review: The Somatics + Kimeera + The Favours
Quite a good idea to have a band from each of three Yorkshire cities and playing a gig in each one, getting the local audience to give an additional sense of purpose and bring in a readymade crowd.

Live Review: Motion + The Bilderberg Group + Saving Lenny
SAVING LENNY The first impression I got of this band was the noise. Two guitars can often be noisy and in this instance that was the case.

CD Review: Little Roy - Battle For Seattle
Cover albums can be really, really good or really, really bad. This collection of ten of Nirvana's best songs recorded in a reggae style are superb.

CD Review: The Charlatans - Up At The Lake
The first song on this album is the title track. It rocks and stomps, demanding volume. Burgess blends his natural voice, with the falsetto style he adopted on the 'Wonderland' album.

Live Review: The Somatics + Tom Gourley
Yet another top night at Josephs' Well, to see two bands, or should I say acts because the first is a solo guy with but an acoustic guitar to his name, which is incidentally TOM GOURLEY.

CD Review: Four Tet - There Is Love In You
Two-years since his last release, 'Ringer,' experimental electro genius Four Tet is back with his seventh studio album 'There Is Love In You.' The long-awaited album opens with the hauntingly beautiful 'Angel Echoes.' It is a track that does exactly what it says on the tin, conjuring up images of floaty ladies serenely passing through the hustle and bustle of the rat-race.

Live Review: C.W. Stoneking + Brownbird Ruddy Relic
In this modern era it's not uncommon for disillusioned and quite often deluded members of society to feel that they belong to another time or place, a hubris conclusion that is usually spurred on by an influential novel, film or television series that can lead one to believe that they were meant to be an ad man from sixties Manhattan or an outlaw from the old American west and not say a clerical worker from modern day Uttoxeter.

Live Review: Iggy & The Stooges + Idlewild + The Sunshine Underground + The Young Knives + Sons and Daughters + The Horrors + The Dirty
As soon as you walk into the grounds of Harewood House, it hits you right in the face: this gig is as close to a sixties' "peace and love" throwback as you're likely to find in this day and age.

'Twas a blustery wet night on Sunday 12th March 2006 when I forced my way into a packed out Cockpit in Leeds, to interview not only a legend, to all self respecting indie lovers, but also a rather splendid chap! In the immortal words of Take That would The Wonder Stuff be back for good?
