    The Empty Page – Unfolding – Album Review

    By Jordan Mooney. With thanks to Kel for her patience! There are many ‘hot spots’ for music in the UK, and one of the most historically significant and increasingly vibrant is Manchester – the city’s musical geography is almost impossible to classify; but we like to think a lot of it can be represented by […]

    Carl Moorcroft – On The Road – Album Review

    By Jordan Mooney. Indie Acoustic albums have never quite sat well with me; I’m far more in the punky side of things, and, in my experience (thank you email inbox), they all too often end up sounding irritatingly pretentious, crooning about lost love so consistently that it’s awfully tempting to provide a pigeonhole for ‘fop-haired […]

    Dick Venom & The Terrortones – Snake Oil For Snakes review

    By Jordan Mooney. Proofreading by Lydia Byron. Dick Venom is easily one of the most creative voices of corruption in the United Kingdom today. His Terrortones are enamoured and feared; not only at Cat on the Wall towers, but across the country. Few groups can hump a stage to such a fine art. Few groups […]
