I saw We Are Scientists the last time they were in the U.K in 2010 at the Leeds festival, they arrived on stage with half drunk bottles of wine and treated the crowd to their own brand of powerful indie pop hits and hilarious on stage banter. Saturday night at the Leeds Stylus was a …

Marking the midpoint in a 14-date tour, the Little Comets came to Sheffield to show the locals how to party. Catfish and the Bottlemen proved to be a great supporting act, working the crowd until everyone could feel the music in their hearts and in their breath.

Marling, now LA-resident, is ploughing a furrow very much independent of the likes of the …

….Only found out on Tuesday that Mark would be playing in Leicester with his new band The Herberts at Firebug, a fabulous little venue in the heart of the town centre.   Walking distance from where I live, this was an opportunity definitely not to be missed. Always a fan of The Bluetones and recently of Mark’s …
