Sheffield over the past year has lost out on four tradesmen but gained yet another new name to add to their increasing list of bands that are discharging out of the city and becoming national, if not global names.

CD Review: Joan As Police Woman - Flushed Chest
There are a few high-ranking names you could try if asked who Joan Wasser makes you think of, but the piano says Nina Simone, even though 'Flushed Chest' uses several other instruments in a finished product that can still leave you feeling as if you've witnessed voice and piano in secluded emotional contact. | 276 hits

CD Review: Detwiije - Would You Rather Be Followed By Forty Ducks for the Rest of Your Life
God bless post rock bands and their inability to come up with short, precise titles. In the world of post rock, reviewers tend to miss the point, and label a band "the new" someone or other, or even worse than that, they simply grab a handful of random bands in the genre and apply their names to newer bands in order to give them a starting point as to what they're trying to do. | 882 hits

New Yorker Joan Wasser is the vocal sensation at the heart of Joan As Police Woman. Although with a mind for equal opportunities other band members are mentioned in the biography, it is her voice you will inevitably come back to. | 264 hits
CD Review: Various Artists - Classic Rock Presents: New Wave Of British Heavy Metal
Galloping into view with more nostalgia than a thousand reminiscing grandparents, 'Classic Rock Presents: New Wave Of British Heavy Metal' does exactly what it says on the tin, and wastes no time in bringing things right back to the 70s, tearing straight into Diamond Head's 'Am I Evil?', a stone cold classic by anyone's standards, which has seen something of a deserved revival in recent times thanks to The Big Four's performance of it when they play together, such as when they dazzled the Sonisphere crowd with it this summer. | 641 hits

Live Review: Bayou Gumbo
I like to think of myself as a man of the world, a raconteur, a philanthropist and all those other words I remember my father using when I was a lad to describe himself to some hapless stranger over a pint (he never ever knew what they meant!)

CD Review: Camera Obscura - Lloyd I'm Ready to Be Heartbroken

Usually, doing a bit of on-line research on a band as you sit listening to their latest single will reveal a little juicy fact or will at least give you the bit of inspiration needed to start writing - even if you just find out the band members' names and where they're from. | 372 hits

CD Review: Hot Club De Paris - Live at Dead Lake
A seductive opening near minute to 'Call Me Mr Demolition Ball' kicks the album off. It's anything but demolition-like, but after this, the pace changes and the idea of a wrecking ball becomes more apparent. | 344 hits
CD Review: The Echo - Tin Foil Dreams
With a name as unimaginative and generic as The Echo it is perhaps no surprise that the accompanying soundtrack offers very little in the way of innovation. | 610 hits

If Cardboard World carried the sub-title "Made for an American market only" then so many stereotypes on one record could be forgiven. | 789 hits
CD Review: Catherine MacLellan - Church Bell Blues
Apparently there has been a recent influx of female singer-songwriters from Canada. Names like Kathleen Edwards and Julie Doiron don't exactly ring any bells for me, but joining them on that accomplished list is Catherine MacLellan, and her name could perhaps ring a (Church) Bell or two. | 338 hits

CD Review: Various Artists - Paul Marshall / Tascam Tapes - split single
A couple of names lately added to the ranks of Leeds acoustic singer-songwriterdom.

CD Review: Chickenhawk - Chickenhawk
Chickenhawk's debut long-player is an ambitious and heroic montage of many different types of metal.

CD Review: Arctic Monkeys - When The Sun Goes Down
Despite Arctic Monkeys' front man Alex Turner's antipathy for media comparisons to their Yorkshire (elder) cousins Kaiser Chiefs -and who can blame him, for they clearly do not sound alike- we should not forget the similarities in their meteoric rise in popularity and whilst they are still relative newcomers in age terms, both have achieved so, so much in just over 12 months; household names is termed not unwisely. | 1,356 hits
