Billy Bragg – Life’s a Riot With Spy vs. Spy, Live in Sydney, 13th September 2013

Billy Bragg – Life’s a Riot With Spy vs. Spy, Live in Sydney, 13th September 2013

In 2013, Billy Bragg’s debut release ‘Life’s a Riot With Spy vs. Spy’ celebrated its thirtieth anniversary.  Due to the lo-fi nature of the recording – one man, an electric guitar, no overdubs – it could have been recorded at any point during that time.  With the younger Bragg possessing an angry voice, a barrage […]

SAXON – Wacken Festival, Germany 4/8/2016

SAXON – Wacken Festival, Germany 4/8/2016

Saxon are no strangers to the Wacken Open Air Festival. The metal titans have played Germany’s biggest metal festival several times – now into double figures – and have been an almost permanent fixture since 2001. 2016 saw the band returning yet again, this time in support of their twenty first studio album ‘Battering Ram’, […]

Dinosaur Jr. – Live @ Parades De Coura 14/08/2014

Dinosaur Jr. – Live @ Parades De Coura 14/08/2014

Since reconvening the original JayLouMurph line up, alt-rock heroes Dinosaur Jr. have gone from strength to strength. The first three albums released since the 2007 reunion (‘Beyond’, ‘Farm’ and ‘I Bet On Sky’) are a match for anything the three men recorded at the end of the 80s. There’s a plethora of live footage of […]

MARMOZETS – Live @ Reading Festival, UK 2015

MARMOZETS – Live @ Reading Festival, UK 2015

On the back of a couple of independent EPs, Marmozets released their debut album in 2014 to great critical acclaim and commercial success.  Rightly so, too, since their blend of alternative rock, math rock, metal and a smidgeon of punky attitude resulted in one of the year’s best discs. [Full review here] Lots of live […]

THE BOOMTOWN RATS – Live at Goldiggers, Chippenham 1984

THE BOOMTOWN RATS – Live at Goldiggers, Chippenham 1984

In the late 70s and early 80s, the BBC had a series of programmes called ‘Sight and Sound In Concert’.  These specially filmed gigs were simultaneously broadcast on BBC TV and radio.  A few are available commercially – as is the case with the excellent Thin Lizzy performance from the Hitchin Regal in 1983 – […]

THEM CROOKED VULTURES Live at Roskilde 2010

THEM CROOKED VULTURES Live at Roskilde 2010

The combination of Joshua Homme from Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones brings together three very talented people. Despite the amount of talent shared between the three men, the debut album from Them Crooked Vultures often sounded like Josh plus side band – a very talented side band, […]

Warpaint – Live on KEXP

Warpaint – Live on KEXP

With an increasing internet presence and upcoming appearances at major UK festivals, dream pop outfit Warpaint have achieved a proper cult following. With songs that aren’t always instant, it seems the live setting works surprisingly well for the US quartet. In this brilliant clip below, the band are caught live for a stream for radio […]

OFF! – Live at Gilman 2011

OFF! – Live at Gilman 2011

After a handful of EP releases, OFF!’s debut album (released in the summer of 2012) was the year’s best punk record. Possibly even the best punk record of the previous decade. The combined talents of ex-Black Flag/Circle Jerks frontman Keith Morris and Redd Kross man Steve McDonald was always likely to result in something fairly […]

NAPALM DEATH: Hellfest 2012

NAPALM DEATH: Hellfest 2012

When Napalm Death appeared on the scene in the late 80s, they were one of the most extreme bands ever. Their grindcore assault, delivering uber-short metal numbers with a hardcore punk aggression, made their debut album ‘Scum’ almost impenetrable. It wasn’t just the sheer intensity that made it somehow fascinating, but also the fact that […]

Frank Turner’s Mongol Horde: debut show – The Wheelbarrow, Camden, London

Frank Turner’s Mongol Horde: debut show – The Wheelbarrow, Camden, London

Early in 2012, folk-punk troubadour Frank Turner announced he would be embarking on a new project which returned to the hardcore roots of Million Dead. In August 2012, the first clip of that new band, Mongol Horde, appeared online, capturing the musicians live in their rehearsal space. At the end of the month, Mongol Horde […]
