CD Review: If I Were King - Untitled

CD Review: Pifco - Pifco A Go Go
Pifco are one of those bands you're either going to love or hate. The first potential deal-breaker is frontman Ste's habit of barking incoherently rather than singing, which will leave a good many people scratching their heads before switching 'Pifco A Go Go' off. | 485 hits
CD Review: Roe Sham Bo - Serotonin

Some bands spend a fortune on their music. Fancy expensive guitars, Roland keyboards, flash drum kits, the works. | 634 hits
Live Review: FF'ers

Live Review: Weezer
Unassuming-looking frontman Rivers Cuomo is transformed into festival hero over the course of Weezer's set, as he indulges in all sorts of tomfoolery, ranging from donning a long blonde wig and treating us to some Lady Gaga, to balancing on top of billboards, bouncing on an onstage trampolinelime, dad-dancing, and pointing and mugging into the cameras like he's recording some cheesy 90's pop music vid. | 559 hits
CD Review: In:Audium - Drawing Silence
How exactly do you "draw" silence then? Do you sit down with a crayon and a piece of paper next the National Institute for the Mute and wait for something non-vocal to grab your artistic muse? | 423 hits

Live Review: Roger McGuinn
Roger McGuinn you ask - who is he? You may well ask. This is the man who defined the sounds of the early 60s with his jingle jangle sound of the 12 string Rickenbacker guitar - a sound adopted and refined by The Beatles no less in many of their early classics (Hard Day's Night springs immediately to mind). | 310 hits

Live Review: Yashin + The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus + Lyu
It's a testament to how hotly anticipated tonight's show is that despite the fact it's cold, raining and blowing a gale outside the Cockpit on this truly miserable Thursday evening, there are fans outside the doors who have queued for hours for a place at the front of the venue; it is clear that expectations for tonight's show are sky high, which leaves Birmingham quartet Lyu the unenviable job of warming up this most partisan of crowds. | 955 hits

Live Review: Wiht
The Packhorse is a downcast and claustrophobic venue to say the least. But it's that eerie drabness in the air, an atmosphere that seemingly evokes the spirit of 70s pub rock and generally times long since gone, that set the perfect stage tonight for Wiht. | 429 hits

Live Review: Tom McRae + Ali Whitton
On an evening as hot as this, being stuck in a bustling gig is not a hugely appealing prospect. Passing out from over-heating - which, as soon as you walk in to the Cockpit, does seem likely or even perhaps inevitable - really doesn't strike me as much fun either, but this gig is certainly one worth suffering for. | 685 hits
CD Review: Various Artists - The First Brainwash Compilation
A compilation can be such an artificial exercise, in so much as a collection of songs - of any merit or standard - plucked out and forced together will make an interesting patchwork but won't necessarily give the impression of a considered and unified entity. | 690 hits
Live Review: four day Hombre
Tonight was going to be another boring Monday night in as usual. I had planned to go the Faversham to see Four Day Hombre but as I hadn't got a clue where it was, and each of the maps I tried looking at all have different things on them, so I had resigned myself to not going. | 427 hits

CD Review: Flood Of Red - Leaving Everything Behind

Live Review: Kimono + Johnny Poindexter + Vessels

CD Review: Jack Butler - Fit The Paradigm

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. | 725 hits
Live Review: Sawthroat + Misled Vision + Esclavage
ESCLAVAGE A rather melodic beginning for a band that seem ready to tear the new roscoe down. This song turns into a roaring mosh-fest in seconds with all members showing good stage presence. | 485 hits
CD Review: Maybeshewill - I Was Here For A Moment, Then I Was Gone
Leicester's Maybeshewill have never previously done things by halves, they have always put the maximum effort into everything they have ever written, and their third album, 'I Was Here For A Moment, Then I Was Gone,' is no exception. | 1,237 hits

Keighley's Sounds of Swami don't hang about on 7" 'Halcyon Days,' blasting through six songs in seventeen minutes. | 900 hits
Live Review: Strike Anywhere + New Mexican Disaster Squad + Fifth Hour Hero + Blocko + Freaks Union
It's bloody freezing outside, it's a 5 o'clock kick off and it's nearly 6.30. Nice one Paul, you tit. | 643 hits
Live Review: Junip
OK sleepy heads, no cheating now. Hands up who knew Jose Gonzalez had a band of his own that have been slipping in and out of consciousness since their school days in Sweden at the back end of the 90s? | 768 hits
Live Review: Elliot + Dugong + Future Adventure + Kids Near Water + Skuttle
e·mo·tion (-mshn) n. An intense mental state that arises subjectively rather than through conscious effort and is often accompanied by physiological changes; a strong feeling Emo is a type of music that is rapidly gaining popularity in the UK, despite being popular in America for some time now. | 512 hits
Live Review: Tinie Tempah + Kid Ink + Lethal Bizzle + Fekky + Flo Rida + Natalie La Rose + Miguel
We arrived in time to catch the last couple of songs by Miguel, 'Leaves' and 'Waves', there was a great atmosphere in the First Direct arena and we knew we were in for a good evening! | 431 hits
CD Review: Coldplay - Mylo Xyloto
I like Coldplay. Hardly a ringing endorsement, I know, but 2005's bloated and bland X&Y aside, I've never quite understood the levels of criticism constantly aimed their way. | 851 hits
Interview: Japanese Voyeurs

CD Review: Cazals - What Of Our Future
Scuzzy indie chancers and childhood playmates of Pete Doherty, Cazals caused a few excited murmurs in the East London grotty party scene a few years back, and after being spoken about in the same sentences as The Rakes and The Paddingtons, signed, quite (un)surprisingly to the 'super-cool' and 'uber-trendy' French label Kitsune. | 582 hits

Live Review: Catylyst + Sugarvalve + Brody
I was supposed to be going to Josephs Well tonight to see Brody, Sugarvalve and Catylyst. Unfortunately they cancelled, so I rang my friends and said, hey no problem I'm definitely coming to see you guys now, only to check the discussion board and see that it had been rearranged at Royal Park and was going ahead as planned aaaahhhhhh!!! | 434 hits

CD Review: Madame Pamita - Wax Works
Madame Pamita's 'Wax Works' debut is one of those rare CDs where it really isn't about the music. The thirteen tracks that make up her musical debut are completely eclipsed by this album's backstory, method of production, packaging, and the press release that comes complete with tales of Madame Pamita's live performances. | 780 hits
Live Review: Wild Beasts + Vessels + Givers + Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks + Stalking Horse + Double Muscle + Dutch Uncles + Exitmusic + Big Deal
Big Deal's slightly awkward, nonplussed banter alone warms up the room noticeably (a half-full, darkened-out Riley Smith Hall at 2 o'clock in the afternoon seems to be a slightly peculiar experience for both audience and band) but, luckily, their bittersweet melodies are pretty winning, too. | 647 hits
Interview: Does It Offend You, Yeah?
Following their packed-out gig at the Cockpit, I was fortunate enough to get some time with Chloe, Dan and James of Does It Offend You, Yeah?. Fresh off touring with bands such as Linkin Park and The Prodigy, I was keen to see what these guys had to say about touring, music, and, of course, hats. | 1,121 hits
CD Review: Cradle of Filth - Darkly, Darkly Venus Aversa
A brief intro before I launch into this one. I own Cradle of Filth albums, I have three in my collection, and although they are dusty, they are still hanging in there, like the skin tags you just never get around to removing. | 4,631 hits
Interview: Vessels
Leeds' own Vessels set off on a tour with Oceansize this week and, as a precursor, play Upstairs @ The Library on Wednesday 27th January with Quack Quack and Juffage. Leeds Music Scene gets a bit geeky with Tom Evans (vocals/guitar), Martin Teff (bass/guitar), and Pete Wright (bass/guitar/keys). | 1,010 hits

Live Review: Boom Bip + Bracken
I arrived at the Mixing Tin just as Bracken were starting their set. Coming down the stairs I could already feel the Anticon associated bass thrumming up to meet me. | 629 hits
Interview: Bastille
Bastille are a London based band made up of Dan, Will, Kyle and Woody, who are current making waves following highly praised sessions on Radio1 with Huw Stephens and Radio2 with Dermot O' name a few. Just before they took to the stage here at Leeds Festival, and following their appearance at Reading and BBC3 with Fearne Cotton, I was lucky to grab (the very excited) Bastille for a chat. We discussed their love of Sleeping, Hot Sauce and collaboration with Jedward....I kid you not!! | 1,263 hits
