Myself and the Shoegaze Brigade touched down in Manchester early, ditched the vehicle for safe keeping and headed out of town. Our mission -which we had already chosen to accept – lead us to the Victoria Warehouse and a rendezvous with our newly accredited Cosmic Cadets. Our task, to get them through twelve and half hours …

So it’s a new venue for me tonight, and it comes in the form of The Lexington. Baba Yaga’s Hut have put a nice little line up together tonight in the form of Sterling Roswell supporting The Oscillation on their Monographic album launch evening. Sterling Roswell is the brainchild of Roscoe, former drummer of Spaceman …

Following the highly successful Fuzz Club Festival last November, we are back at the London Fields Brewery for ‘Under the Arches’ – a new monthly event which brings together record labels to showcase the best from the global psych and underground rock and roll scene. Housed within two brickwork arches, the Light Arch plays host …

As a band Henge are well named, a unit that is strangely archaic and yet solid; a band whose music batters through to your very soul. On the evidence of its self-titled debut album Henge is also a band that is pretty difficult to categorise being just about ‘post’ everything that you might throw at …

Cavalier Song are a band that are new to me this year, but one that I really rate. The band’s debut album, Blezard (read the review here) is a stark and spacious record that has its moments of noise and chaos, but leaves you with the overall impression of dark tranquility.

Every now and again, a band comes along that compels you to move heaven and earth to see them play live – 3AM are one such band. “3AM it’s the solo project of Chino Burga (La IrA de Dios, La Garua, Necromongo, Los Entierros, Black Saqras, Espira) based on riffs, loops and a lot of tremolo.” I …

Day 1 of Fuzz Club Festival had set the bar impossibly high. There had been 6 outstanding performances on Friday, the promise of 8 more on Saturday was a dizzying prospect. The dizziness is quickly reigned in, with the inevitable news that Wall Of Death, understandably, would no longer be joining us. The sickening reality of the slaughter in …

By my reckoning, this is something like my 23rd post in connection with Fuzz Club Records. For those of you familiar with this blog, this will come as no surprise. To those fledgling acolytes, I would urge you to seek out that which will make you whole again – just as Fuzz Club did for me, …

Cult of Dom Keller has been a favourite of mine for some years now. Two cracking albums and a series of enthralling live performances mean that I try to see the band whenever I get the chance. So I was really pleased to hear that they were Cardinal Fuzz Sonic Attack stage, and they did …

I spoke briefly to Rapha, the bass player of Boogarins after the gig, only long enough to ask him to describe their music in a few words if possible. He replied “Free Jazz Pop Rock”. It’s as good a phrase as any, but I would be doing a poor job, and the band a disservice …
