The Jesus And Mary Chain - The Church, Leeds, March 27th 2017 (LIVE REVIEW)


"...He cuts quite a sharp-dressed slender figure through the blue swathes of dry ice as his brother still sporting that wild bird's nest of hair cranks out the walls of noise behind him."

Laura Marling - Leeds 02 Academy, March 8th 2017 (LIVE REVIEW)

"Doffing a cap to International Women’s Day, we then get a trio of Marling tracks baring female names, starting with her cozy new ode to the capriciousness of the fairer sex ‘Nouel’’ followed by ‘Daisy’ and ‘Sophia’, the latter featuring twelve string guitar work to send a shiver down the spine..."

Pulled Apart By Horses - Tour (PREVIEW) & Album (REVIEW)



"...don't think for a minute then that this forth installment is their grown up, mellowed out, mature album. Not entirely anyway. Fret not young moshers, you'll be losing your shit/phones/trainers to some of these short sharp blasts of high energy guitar-fueled rock fury".

Laura Marling 'Semper Femina' (ALBUM REVIEW)


"...the album’s sound is as densely packed as the auditoria will be in her forthcoming shows, big bass dominating a somewhat noir soundscape, yet still allowing our heroine’s chocolatey mezzo vocal free reign".

Plants & Animals (supporting The Dears) - Leeds Brudenell, February 26th 2017 (LIVE REVIEW)



"...the set closed with the anthemic ‘Light Show’ from ‘The End of That’. Every number sounding sharp and full-on, showcasing the band’s elaborate song structures without any of them outstaying their welcome."

The Pigeon Detectives - Leeds Headrow House, February 26th 2017 (ALBUM LAUNCH LIVE REVIEW)


It’s been four long years since Matt, Oliver, Ryan, Dave and Jimmi put out their last album so it’s great to see the Rothwell quintet finally releasing some new material and donning their gigging boots once more...
