CD Review: A Silver Mt. Zion - "This Is Our Punk Rock" Thee Rusted Satellites Gather + Sing

CD Review: Beautiful Feet - Unfinished Business EP
Beautiful feet have a very pleasing sound, a Radio 2 Sunday morning sound, a keeuuwwwwl sound - not a bad thing, in fact with the increasing number of noisy guitar monkeys out there it is refreshing to hear someone being subtle with their instruments. | 461 hits
Live Review: Serj Tankian
His near-iconic status as System of a Down frontman probably has a lot to do with the chants of "we want Serj!" that fill the NME/Radio One tent as the roadies begin setting the stage for the Serj Tankian show. | 549 hits
CD Review: The Envy Corps - Rhinemaidens

Firstly it must be made clear that at 2am this morning I was still to be found amateur mountaineering/forest-fire-avoiding after a party in a remote wood somewhere out towards Huddersfield and so my mental capacity is not at its best for remembering all of the events which unfolded at tonight's Louder Than Bombs session. | 775 hits
CD Review: Joan of Arc - In Rape Fantasy & Terror Sex We Trust

Live Review: Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies + Pixies + The Subways + Infadels + Ali Whitton + The Black Velvets
Quickly cast aside as quite frankly preposterous any mistaken apprehension that the hushed rumours and tales whispering their way around the Red and Yellow campsites on Saturday morning were of Maiden's amazingly iconic 'Number Of The Beast', Bloc Party's 'Pioneers', aftershow craziness, or even, god forbid you little scamps, the prospect of going to the Aftershock Bar later to more-than-hopefully (with all fingers, toes and, ahem, everything crossed) catch a glimpse of a naked girl in the jacuzzi (not that you could see anything though, I did make it my duty to do a little research). | 1,003 hits

Live Review: 2manydjs + Hot Chip + Klaxons + Hope of the States + ¡Forward, Russia! + The Hair
I think I'm getting old, or something, because it's taking me longer to recover from these festival things than it used to. | 686 hits
Live Review: The Xenith Sound + The Humour + The Echo
Sweat drips from every pore; they bleed your life and finances here folks. Here been the cockpit. Atmosphere is sold in bags, buckets even. | 1,484 hits

Live Review: Bombay Bicycle Club + Dry the River + Dog Is Dead
The contour of two floral-figureheads from the album cover of "A Different Kind of Fix" looked lengthways across the stage as Bombay Bicycle Club brought their tour to the city. | 763 hits
Live Review: Misled Vision + Cutout Hero + Dum Flux
Dum Flux opened up the evening in a punk rock fashion. Melodic, energetic but let down by out of time guitars and slightly out of tune vocals. | 515 hits
Live Review: Milo + Uptight + Beat Route 62 + db5
It's Friday night, it's cold and it's wet, so do you stay in and get depressed because you have no friends, or do you go out to catch some top live bands from your local area giving their all in a great pub which sells decent beer, get hideously drunk in a nightclub afterwards, fall all the way home then wake up in a strange bed the next morning with little or no recollection of how, why or when? | 533 hits
Live Review: Visa + Being 747 + Graeme Stanton
Tonight was a much-anticipated event. Visa had been away from the live scene for around 7 months, taking time to build a themselves a studio and record some fine tunes indeed. | 442 hits
Live Review: Fozzy + JettBlack + Verses + Senzafine
"I heard people in Leeds like: filthy, dirty, sleazy, slimy, disgusting, mildewy heavy metal!" The inimitable Chris Jericho knows how to work a crowd, and judging the reaction to his sublimely hyperbolized declaration, the packed house at The Well is prime for Fozzy's first ever performance in Leeds. | 1,215 hits

CD Review: The Scaramanga Six - Strike! Up the Band
Strike! Up the Band is a monster. The 13 songs, the two videos and the SIX SIX SIX count-in absolutely guarantee one hell of a good mood. | 625 hits
CD Review: Franz Ferdinand - You Could Have It So Much Better
That's right folks, the notoriously troublesome second album is due, you've used all your best tunes on the first one and back home everybody else has re-hashed them behind your back while you've been busy conquering North America. | 612 hits
Interview: Marsicans
I'm at Leeds Festival and it's Sunday afternoon, the Marsicans have just opened up the BBC Introducing stage and tore it apart! Still on a high, I caught them for a chat after, to see how it was to play their first festival! This is what James, Joe, Ollie and Matt had to say about worms, hotel room videos and stage diving!! | 806 hits
Live Review: Songhoy Blues
The Brudenell is packed and brimming with anticipation. The gig is sold out and the crowd is a pleasant mix of young and old alike. | 508 hits
Live Review: Brass Moustache + Sposh + Hipstream
"Smile... JUST SMILE!" Cue camera flash. "Oh, Mum!" Not the most auspicious start to a gig, but what can you do to control proud parents? | 449 hits
Interview: The Concetines
After a year and a half of being a young indie boy band from Leeds, I finally got the chance to have a chat with the boys from The Concetines. And needless to say, the interview was full of banter and sarcasm from each one of them. The band has recently begun to grow more and more successful grabbing an opportunity to share their wonderful music with the audience at Live at Leeds 2013 this summer. | 515 hits
CD Review: Josh Lees - Faith In A Box
The most impressive thing about Bradford-based Josh Lees' debut album, is his ability to tweak the usually restrictive acoustic pop formula, to give each song its own distinct character. | 588 hits

It's 2.30pm, I'm incredibly hungover and all I really want to do is lay down and feel sorry for myself. | 618 hits

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. | 624 hits
Interview: Arcane Roots
Two days after the release of their debut album 'Blood & Chemistry', Jamie O'Neill met up with Andrew, Adam and Daryl of Arcane Roots before they played the Cockpit to discuss the making of the new album, their intense tour schedule and the future of the band... | 507 hits
Live Review: The Maccabees + Bombay Bicycle Club + The Big Pink + The Drums

Live Review: Dead Disco + The Clerks + The Voyeurs + Movement
Regardless of drawing the short straw and getting the booby prize of first slot in tonight's line up, Movement appear to not give a flying turd that the crowd is thin and they are on before your granny's bed time. | 2,007 hits
Live Review: Truvine + Kill Manticore + Interruptor Jones + Colin Mounsey
So this is the location for Wakefield's newest acoustic night (featuring two non-acoustic bands tonight, just for the hell of it). | 884 hits

Live Review: The Rakes + Larrikin Love + Klaxons + You Say Party! We Say Die! + Hope of the States + ¡Forward, Russia! + The Hair
It doesn't seem like two minutes since we left the rubble and wreckage of last year's festival behind and dispersed forth to the safe haven of a soft floor and a properly plumbed toilet. | 1,435 hits
CD Review: Dear Reader - Idealistic Animals
I'd warmed to "Idealistic Animals" before I heard a single note. I like animals. Not in the way that would force Republican candidates to cry "It's unnatural!" of course but in the "They're ace!" sense. | 6,635 hits
Live Review: Cansei de Ser Sexy + The Last Shadow Puppets + Tenacious D + Feeder + Pendulum + The Music + Hadouken! + Lightspeed Champion + The Whip + Adam Green + Mindless Self Indulgence
Turning up on Friday morning, swapping my piece of paper for my press pass, pitching my tent in guest camping and making my way to the arena, I was really pleased I'd been able to come to Leeds this year. | 986 hits

Live Review: Wildhearts + Hurricane Party + Terrorvision + Days Of Worth + The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster + Planet Of Women + Shortcut To Newark + Hanoi Rocks + Plan A + The Glitterati + The Grit + Tokyo Dragons + Robochrist
So this is what I missed Leeds Festival for then. Catching the train out to the coast first thing on a Saturday morning (well, halfway to the coast - due to trouble on the line I end up getting a bus from York) to see the last ever gig by both Wildhearts and Terrorvision, today has the omens of being a good day. | 1,629 hits
