CD Review: Electric Eel Shock - Transworld Ultra Rock
Dispensing with the need to be ironic or clever, having English as a second language is perfect for fists in the air rock, as Ozzy has consistently shown.  Indeed Black Sabbath have been one of Electric Eel Shock's main influences along with a host of other 80's rock luminaries.  It's a style accurately described by their own press as 'fashion proof' and you'd have to agree there's very little here that would identify it as a record made in 2007. | 354 hits

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. | 376 hits

CD Review: Various Artists - Shock Rock: Wall Of Sound

CD Review: Xi - Montauk

CD Review: Volcanoes - Shaking That Brass
This Sheffield four piece came crashing out of my stereo and their brand of rock made me smile. Far from allowing their audience to settle into the usual indie snooze where the bands are so determined to sound 'alternative,' Volcanoes actually do offer something to stay awake for. | 428 hits

CD Review: The Sugars - Doo Wop (Sugar So Sweet)

CD Review: Hundred Reasons - Shatterproof is not a Challenge
A British rock band that sound British? What? How novel! Failing to be swayed by the influx of rock acts at the moment that seem unable to retain any sense of their own accent Colin Doran sings and screams his way through this second album in a most definitely British voice, in much the way Gary Stringer of Reef has always done. | 480 hits
Live Review: Dirty Pretty Things + Humanzi + Louie
There's the possibility of a successful band here, but it's unlikely to be named Louie. I mean, it could form from Louie, or component members thereof, but for now all we see before us is a band going through the stage of self-finding, identification and formation. | 1,105 hits
CD Review: 16th Round - Matchstick Man
It's actually quite hard to write decent meaningful songs about totally irrelevant rock clichés like angels crying, hard times, girls who don't pay you any attention, dragons etc, and not surprisingly like so many before 16th Round don't manage it either. | 379 hits

The Hellacopters are so close to being Spinal Tap. Only a lack of exploding drummers, entrances through pods and a miniature Stonehenge is lacking, rockposing and dumb rock songs are the order of the day. | 242 hits
CD Review: Outl4w - Get in the Van
Just because they're kids with guitars, don't expect Outl4w to be in the same mould as McFly/Busted. You won't find any watered down rock for the teeny-bop masses on this album. | 520 hits

Here we have ten diamond white 80s pop songs with mighty swirls of darker third millennium awareness. | 892 hits

Usually when a band has an unbelievably pretentious press release then 9 out of 10 times the music will be utterly pants. | 389 hits
CD Review: Purple Orm - Sounds From Small Town
Apart from the name I have little to complain about Purple Orm. This 3 piece from Castleford (I'm guessing) have a steady rock and roll sound that is likeable enough on this 3 song CD. | 303 hits

Live Review: Galitza + The Bilderberg Group + Monte Carlo
Sad times rule at the Well as the latest Monte Carlo incarnation comes to an end. Sad, but happily the tunes as just as fine as ever, as Carl's voice soars above the tight rhythms of his fellow Montes. | 409 hits
CD Review: Grand Volume - Send Me Your Champion
Obviously not short of confidence, this trio from Manchester, as Send Me your Champion aspires to throw down the gauntlet to today's crop of rock bands and, on some levels at least, succeeds. | 614 hits

These days the term "Indie-rock" is enough to strike fear into the heart of even the most hardened, weathered hack. | 508 hits
Live Review: The Birdman Rallies
For a local band, playing in a local bar, these guys were obscenely good tonight. I've caught them a couple of times before but this was the one where you think "I'm lucky to be in on this early before everyone else finds out!" Already with a couple of albums under their belt, the quality of the songs shone though tonight, doubtless due to the serious rehearsing they must have done to be this tight. | 568 hits

CD Review: Reuben - Very Fast Very Dangerous

CD Review: Aarkle Hooman - Pink Gorilla EP

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. | 427 hits

CD Review: Little Plato - Sugarspoon EP

Live Review: Parva + The Union Volts + Being 747
Would putting rock bands in a massive hole work? With a crowd made-up of mostly of people wanting to be seen and grab the free booze, it was a triumph for the bands for so many to be grabbed from the bar by the quality of the music. | 492 hits
CD Review: Eighty Six - What's My Problem Today?

CD Review: No Use For A Name - The Feel Good Record Of The Year
Although punk rock veterans, with twenty years under their belt, No Use For A Name have now released an album that seems to take in influences of too many new wave bands and forgets about what made them great in the first place. | 338 hits

CD Review: Story Of The Year - The Black Swan
'The Black Swan' is the new long awaited album from Story Of The Year.

Live Review: Burning Brides + My Red Cell + The Cribs
Mullets. When did they become fashionable again? They're all around me. I nervously feel that I'm being punished for having a chuckle at a few days earlier, or perhaps I've been warped into a parallel universe where all the rock chick style guides insist on one. | 823 hits

Live Review: Yuck
On the previous two days my early morning visits to the Radio 1 / NME tent have provided my ears with a bit of a battering, in the best possible way, so on day three of the festival it is a nice change of pace to encounter Yuck's slightly slower paced, harmonious delivery of guitar led, pop-rock. | 379 hits

Live Review: The Donnas + Sahara Hotnights
When I got there I was not sure who was supporting the Donnas and had no great expectations of them. The room took ages to fill up and I thought that it may be quiet due to other gigs taking place in Leeds, but as the SAHARA HOTNIGHTS took to the stage the room was nicely filling up. | 235 hits
