    Alexa De Strange – CON CONJONES – the Official Live DVD

    By Jordan Mooney. In this world of rock and roll, live DVDs and CDs still pepper the big-label groups’ repertoire.

    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 […]

    ALPHABETIC debut first single, French Boyfriend

    By Jordan Mooney. Alphabetic are a particularly fine call back to the days when music was, perhaps, simpler – but harder to categorise and easier to adapt for any situation. This is the good side of the 80s; less swaggering rock wankers and a bit more in the line of the radio’s finest moments. French […]
