EWAH and the Vision of Paradise were launching their single ‘Play Hard’ (see my review and interview here) in their home town, seemingly on the cusp of the apocalypse, and it was a great performance from a band that is incredibly mature and poised. While undoubtedly the enigmatic EWAH, as the principle songwriter, guitarist and …

The Peacock Theatre in Salamanca – a historic dockside part of inner city Hobart – is quite unique. It is part of a line of old sandstone warehouses facing the docks and the back wall of the stage is the raw rock cliff face that backs the buildings. It is a small and intimate space, …

There was a buzz around this gig and everyone present knew it was going to be a good one. The Likkor men are always raucous, loud and imperfect.  Pure rock n roll. They bring the party. Bajzel hails all the way from Poland and playing his second show in Middlesbrough. Described as a “one man …

Popped down to Basecamp in Middlesbrough on a Tuesday night for after hearing some good things about Jemma Freeman and her band. The night was put on by Art Mouse Promotions who focus on underrepresented and marginalised artists. Support came in the shape of Duck. Sheffield band who have just welcomed a new member in …

Local duo ‘Reservoir’ open tonight’s show with a lush guitar-driven set, oozing post-punk Manchester. With left-handed bass and right-handed guitar they even evoke that visual Beatles symmetry, and throwing in a cover of New Order’s ‘Ceremony’ is a smart move and beautifully executed.

Julie’s Haircut are an Italian neo-psychedelic offering who have been around for more years than they would care to admit now, having initially formed back in 1994. Their recent allegiance has been to UK based label Rocket Recordings, who today have released their latest offering, their ninth studio album no less, In The Silence Electric. …

Levitation France is back for its 7th edition and the venue is Théâtre Le Quai, located in a stunning location on the banks of the river Maine, in the heart of Angers. The venue is a public art space and certainly looks the part without the added spectacle of the lightshow. The first band on …

After such an extraordinary day one, it’s hard to imagine that day two can be any better, but if the crowds who are down for the opening of the doors are anything to go by, expectation is high. Opening are Chilean four piece Vuelveteloca, who blend traditional South American rock with some heavy psychedelic influences …
