electronic live review


For over 43 years, Gary Numan has fascinated audiences with his robot-like persona. Part innovator, part plagiarist, Numan has been an icon of electronic music since his chart toping single “Are Friends Electric” came out in 1979. He is a very different artist from those early days, the first few singles and albums feel stripped back compared …

By Liam Murphy On Friday, the 1st of April 2022, Dublin-native Gemma Dunleavy took to the 3Olympia Theatre stage for her biggest show to date. Despite the date famously being known as April Fool’s Day, this gig was no joke, with Dunleavy calling it the “dream of all dreams”.  The night’s proceedings were kicked off …

By Izzy Clayton Topping off a gloriously sunny day, it was down to the basement at Hyde Park Book Club to catch the wonderfully self-titled ‘Masked Drag Monster’, Lynks. The Leeds show also marked the halfway point of the 2022 tour.  Opening the show was STRAIGHT GIRL, an electropunk artist based locally in Leeds. As …

Really, all that’s missing are the glow sticks. Kosheen started the party back in 2001 and it feels like they’re still sound-tracking that noughties all-nighter. Sian Evans commands Kosheen much like Florence drives her machine but with bass heavy repetitive grooves and anthemic hooks aplenty. Pounding and intense. Like a Seat Ibiza motor has just …

On a chilly evening in the north of England, there’s no better way to warm up than with some Eurovision dance pop… well that’s what everyone told themselves on this bitter Monday in Leeds.  Glaswegian two piece Hyyts are the lone support for the show and their infectious 80s inspired vibes received an exceptional reaction …

It’s hard to believe that on this unassuming Saturday night in Leicester, Dadi Freyr and support, HYYTS are putting on a show that was 50/50 music/comedy. You can hear the laughter from the packed second room at the o2 Academy from the ticket desk and as you enter the crowd, it’s nothing but wholesome vibes …

The buzz of anticipation was all but overwhelming. Like most cities, Sheffield looks after their own – those people that were at Pulps ‘last ever’ gig, or those nights at the arena watching Arctic Monkeys will attest to that, and the next on the conveyor belt of steel city talent heading for those echelons is …

Words: PeteMo / Pictures: Nick Lowe Hailing from the basement & underground party scene of the east end of London, Snapped Ankles materialised like a strange & mythical apparition in front of an eager and discerning capacity crowd in the steel city, on a dank Saturday night.  The venue, a working man’s club, dimly lit and heated to …
