CD Review: Various Artists - Stereogum Presents... "Stroked: A Tribute to Is This It"

The first "Whatever..." night I have been to at the New Roscoe has left quite an impression on me. An unassuming venue that looks like it should play host to tribute bands, it has a Wednesday night local talent night where three bands play and finishing work early I decided to call in. | 277 hits

Live Review: Born To Run
I'm not big on lookalike/soundalike "tribute" bands as it all seems a bit naff to me, but I am a big Bruce fan, so I thought what the hell, it's only a fiver in and The New Roscoe is only about 20 minutes drive away and there's not much else happening this Thursday night. | 216 hits

CD Review: The Zico Chain - s/t
After spending some time listening to this new mini album from Brighton's angry grungers, The Zico Chain, I have learnt several things.  My grunge threshold is considerably lower than I previously thought.  Comparisons to legendary bands can be a thankless task.  Confidence in yourself can be a saviour. | 306 hits

Live Review: The Young Knives
On the surface of things, The Young Knives do not come across as an instantly likeable band. Their whole geek-chic image, seemingly meaningless moniker and ludicrously named bass player (The House of Lords, those of you who were wondering) make it easy to mark them down as achingly hip, annoyingly pretentious passengers on the indie scenester bandwagon where being able to pout is much more important than being able to play. | 652 hits

CD Review: Volcanoes - Vexihomp

Live Review: Aces & Eights + The Voltaires + Honeycomb Love
Aces & Eights are one of the only recent bands who have not come directly from MySpace. Rather than relying on the support of their, admittedly, over 1000 "Friends" they've worked their way up through the grimy Leeds pubs to arrive, not quite signed and slightly tainted, at the Cockpit. | 945 hits

Live Review: Design + Lazer Kid + Beautiful Feet + Draco + Icarus Smith
The annual Bright Young Things showcase has been very much like a 'Kinder Surprise' over the last few years - yes you may look back fondly enough, but you'd rather have a 'Fizzy Cola Bottle' (Futuresound competition) or even a 'Flying Saucer' (local band nite at Joseph's Well) because, at the end of the day, while the 'Kinder Egg' promises much, open it up and a crappy toy that you play with for five minutes and then lose down the back of the sofa is all that confronts you. | 506 hits

Live Review: Parva + The Bluefoot Project + Mr Shiraz + Galitza
A gig in aid of 'A GOOD CAUSE' eh? (the 'good cause' in question being Wheatfields hospice). Thankfully tonite's gig and the Junction 47 II CD it is designed to promote owe more to the 'Help' album than they do to 'Live Aid' - bringing together genuinely good bands from Leeds to do what they do best - play quality music with scarce a lighter-waving ballad featuring a children's choir in sight... | 749 hits
