    Rachel Sermanni @ 10 Feet Tall, 10th October 2012, Cardiff

    Review by Jo Whitby Cat On The Wall has been on the back burner for quite a few months now, there’s several interviews that still need transcribing which in all honesty will probably remain on the dictaphone for many more months to come. It’s a shame but I’ve got other projects to prioritise as much […]

    The Smiths Indeed @ The Globe, Cardiff 5th Feb 2012

    The Smiths Indeed @ The Globe, Cardiff | Words and photos by Celine Lux I have two confessions to make: I only discovered The Smiths in the mid 90s, after they split up, thanks to a friend who, having been a fan whilst the band was still producing songs that have now become anthems, took […]

  • Pixies – Doolittle Tour @ Le Zenith – Paris, France 15th October 2009

    Review by Ian Lewis Pixies. Doolittle. Tour. Those three words are enough to stir up many emotions in Pixies fans. Nostalgia in those who were lucky enough to attend the first Doolittle shows in 1989.

Having never seen him live before I had wondered whether his humour would become part […]

  • IAMX Live @ Koko, London: 19th April 2009

    To throbbing bass and erratic, jerking visuals flashing faster so fast that even the front row were struggling to discern what they were, the white screen of KOKO ascended. Corner stepped out of the darkness sporting a white masquerade mask, golden gloves and entirely black attire. Against the backdrop of hypnotic visuals he launched straight […]

  • Erin Lang – Live @ The Luminaire, 06.05.09, London

    Less than ten days ago I had no idea who Erin Lang was. I am now hooked, not just to the music but also to the character that Erin is. When she unexpectedly invited me to see her play in London last Wednesday I jumped at the chance. I have no regrets. As I am […]

  • Sue and the Unicorn – 25.02.2009 @ Bar Academy, London

    Sue Denim may be one half of the electro-duo ‘Robots in Disguise’, but she’s also a talented solo musician in her own right. Abandoning the catchy synth riffs and driven baselines that are synonymous with the Robots’ music, she takes to the stage with just an acoustic guitar, her unmistakably brilliant voice, and her iconic […]
