LIVE: The Menzingers / The Smith Street Band / The Holy Mess @ Electric Ballroom, London

It’s barely past doors when Philadelphia based punk trio The Holy Mess take to the stage in the subterranean depths of the Electric Ballroom. Tonight, they find themselves opening up one of the most exciting alternative bills to pass through the capital in some time, preceding Australian folk-punks The Smith Street Band, and the increasingly […]

LIVE: Lower Than Atlantis – Album Launch Show @ The Monarch, Camden

It’s fair to say we’ve all been treated excessively with the amount of albums that have been released this year. We’ve seen the return of teenage icons, welcomed new bands onto the scene in a tremendous fashion and supported British rock music like no other. One band in particular who have stormed their way back […]

LIVE: This Wild Life / Rob Lynch @ Underworld, London

See our full gallery here. This Wild Life are not your typical band. Having shrunk from a full band to an acoustic duo following their early reception, Kevin Jordan and Anthony Del Grosso have since found themselves embraced by the alternative scene – not least, judging by tonight’s onlookers, the young. Although predominantly filled by […]

LIVE: Marmozets / Beats @ The Fighting Cocks, Kingston

Album release shows are a chance to see bands in environments that you wouldn’t normally see them in and Banquet Records are quite adept at getting big name artists to play smaller venues for such an occasion. In the past they’ve had bands like Twin Atlantic and Royal Blood play special shows, but this time, […]

Live: Friday @ WTFest – Apologies, I Have None and more

Southampton hosts one of the UK’s best alternative music scenes. It’s a popular stop off for international tours, boosts some excellent emerging talent, and has one of the most on point studios in the country. Its success has come off the back of solid hard work and blind faith though, and this is often personified […]

LIVE: Marmozets / Lonely The Brave / Allusondrugs @ The Scala, London

The last time Marmozets played Scala, it was on a club night 2 years ago. Tonight they returned as headliners and showed that they deserve to be playing even bigger venues than this. First up though are Leeds natives Allusondrugs. Having a Nirvana flavour to them, they embark on an adrenaline fuelled set to open […]

LIVE: Moose Blood, Milk Teeth, Weak Nerves @ Old Blue Last, London

Moose Blood are big deal right now. Actually, its safe to say that Moose Blood are one of the biggest deals to happen to the UK music scene in recent memory. Their new album ‘I’ll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time’ is a perfectly crafted body of work that delivered in every way […]

LIVE: Me Vs Hero, Roam, Thrash Boat @ Islington Academy, London

UK pop-punk can hardly argue to have as large an audience in comparison to their North American counter-parts, internationally or even domestically. But on evidence of tonight’s performances it’s hard to see why the bands from this side of the Atlantic struggle to build a following, home and away. With bands hailing from all over […]

LIVE: Superheaven, Concave, Grayscale @ The Fighting Cocks, Kingston

Over recent years, it has been impossible to avoid the nostalgic adoration for 90’s alternative rock within the music world. Bands from that era are reuniting, records being reissued, and more noticeably, current bands are adopting a sound that harks back to the days of MTV actually playing music video’s, and Long hair and plaid […]

LIVE: Beartooth/ Dead Harts @ The Borderline, London

Back in December, we posted an Introducing piece about a band called Beartooth. We said they “might just blow your socks off”, but we could never have predicted just how much. Because tonight, on a warm September evening in London, Beartooth are playing their very first headline show in the UK to a sold out […]
