LIVE: Reading Festival (Sunday)

Check out our photo galleries of the Saturday at Reading Festival. Part 1 | Part 2 Back to Saturday Bleary eyes and pounding heads from the night before, what better way to kick off Sunday’s proceedings than with a dose of pop punk all the way from Walnut Creek? Another surprise Main Stage opener (that […]

LIVE: Young Guns / Twin Wild @ Madame Jojo’s, London

Having taken to the Main Stage at Reading and Leeds Festival only a week prior to the Madame Jojo’s show, the intimate subterranean burlesque club in London’s notorious Soho district is a far cry from Young Guns’ usual surroundings. Acting as a homecoming, tonight is not just an intimate showcase – it’s both a thank […]

LIVE: Routemaster Bus and Fender Stratocaster 60th Anniversary Gig

Gosh, TFL. Trying to butter me up like this with the promise of a free bus ride, four bands and free food and drink – or should I not have mentioned that last one? Either way, as easy as it is to solely consider whether this display of freebies and well-decorated buses would make up […]

LIVE: Reading Festival (Saturday)

Check out our photo galleries of the Saturday at Reading Festival. Part 1 | Part 2 Back to Friday This is a moment we’d all been waiting for. From the moment that Gnarwolves got announced on the Reading Main Stage, the punk community had been up on their feet, applauding the fact that some skater […]

LIVE: Lonely The Brave / I Am Giant @ Dingwalls, London

‘Life-affirming’. That’s the way Tom Beck - erstwhile proprietor of the late, under-rated Walnut Tree Records – described the song ‘Backroads’ by Cambridge (then-quartet) Lonely the Brave when it was included on WTR’s 2009 compilation ‘Punktastic Unscene 5′. It’s been a half a decade in the making but, fuelled primarily by that very song, the band’s début album ‘The Day’s War’ has sprinted […]

LIVE: A Day To Remember, Architects, Letlive. @ Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff

Back in February, most of Cardiff (and everyone else who travelled for the show) got their hearts broken when A Day To Remember cancelled their show due to frontman Jeremy McKinnon’s ill health. Fast forward to August, and order is restored with their postponed show going ahead with a shiny new line up: Architects, Letlive. […]

LIVE: Reading Festival (Introduction)

Reading Festival has marked the end of our festival season for many years, 2014 proving to be no exception. Welcoming approximately 90000 people through its gate, on top of the 80000 who venture to Leeds, it has quite rightly been dubbed the quintessential British festival. As we are driving to Reading on the Thursday, one […]

LIVE: Authority Zero, Counterpunch @ New Cross Inn, London

As I write this I am weary yet happy after a fantastic array of punk goodness supplied by 5 great bands last night at the New Cross Inn. We kicked off with Red Rag Front who surprised me by no longer being an acoustic duo! They have now morphed into a catchy four-piece who provided […]

LIVE: Deafheaven, Chelsea Wolfe @ The Garage, London

After the news that ATP’s Jabberwocky fest had fallen through at the 11th hour, a lot of fans were left wondering if the bands from the stellar line up would play replacement shows. In the days after, shows were announced by Pissed Jeans, Iceage, Neutral Milk Hotel, and The Van Pelt (eventually), so those that […]
