    Birds and Beasts – Turn With The Tide, Official Single Launch Party – Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield, 07/07/2017

    With thanks to Sophie Cooke and Qasim Hussain. I first encountered Birds and Beasts as an acoustic duo during the final show at Wood Street, a tiny wee acoustic venue in one of Huddersfield’s labyrinthine streets. Leo and Anna, the group’s co-lead guitarists and vocalists, performed a short set of stripped down tracks from their […]

    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. They are often over produced, under enthused and, more often than not, simply not very interesting. This is the curse of the rock and roll star – forty years of playing grinding them into a […]

    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 […]
