ALTERNATIVE MUSIC REVIEWS

The Misfits @ Motion, Bristol

It was time for me to head across the bridge today to tick something off my bucket list. Seeing The Misfits live. Here is the review of the evening...

WSTR – SKRWD

Pop-punk five-piece WSTR are set to release their latest EP, SKRWD, next month, and I strongly advise you to pre-order it and start counting down the days.

Ashestoangels/Farewell My Love @ Thekla, Bristol

So for this review, I went on a boat ride (after a train ride across the border to the lovely rainy city of Bristol). The first challenge for me would be to get over my fear of boats and open water and actually get on the boat which I did complete with only a minor freak-out. But all in the name of music and to celebrate (and commiserate) the end of the British Horror Story Tour.

More Than Most/The Afterparty @ O2 Islington

Today's ventures took me back to London to the O2Academy2 in Islington to see More Than Most headlining and filming their live music video for their next single.

Blood Youth/Trash Boat at The Barfly Camden

The Barfly in Camden is a small yet respectable venue, which has witnessed many bands arriving through its doors in hopes of creating an atmosphere of pure music bliss for fans. On this occasion the venue was taken over by Blood Youth for their "Inside My Head" tour...

Downers – Noose

With fuzzy gained up guitars and strangely soothing vocals over the top, Downers' new EP Noose takes us on a trip right back to the roots of grunge music. The 3 track EP consists of heavy guitars blasting power chords right down your throat during instrumental breaks, whilst giving generally stripped back verses consisting of calming vocals, straight drum beats and eerie clean/reverberated guitars.

NASS Festival Review

‘My marbles are somewhere in that field.’ – A man named Dave. Once again the summer festival season has hit the ground running and everyone seems to be going mad for it. None more so then the humble Nass festival which is situated in South West England at the prestigious Bath and West Showground’s and yours truly was lucky enough to gain access to report the Simmonds Standard.

Eva Plays Dead ‘Sounds Of The Written Word’ EP Launch, Glasgow

Eva Plays Dead came to Glasgow's Broadcast for the last stop for the 'Sound of The Written Word' EP launch tour. Here is what Gareth Rooke thought of the evening.

Homebound – Permanence

Surrey based pop-punk 5-piece Homebound released their brand new EP 'Permanence' last week. George Scott had a listen and decided that it's not anything groundbreaking...find out why here...

The Endeavour – Voyage

This band are “the answer to the questions you’ve been asking for far too long”. Once you’ve heard this EP you won’t be able to read that sentence again without singing it. That is ‘The Endeavour’ effect. Make sure you check out ‘Voyage’.

Megalomatic, Twin Heart, Peur and Mantis Toboggan at Stereo, Glasgow

Gareth Rooke reviewed Megalomatic's two year anniversary show that featured suppot from Twin Heart, Peur and Mantis Toboggan. The evening took place at Stereo in Glasgow and here is what the thought...

Trash Boat and Blood Youth (Clwb Ifor Bach)

So it was off to Cardiff for me again to see the Welsh leg of the Trash Boat/Blood Youth joint headline tour. Last time I went to the downstairs room in Clwb Ifor Bach was for a intimate meet and greet and acoustic show with American pop-punkers Set It Off, with the main event being held in the larger room upstairs. So to see a proper gig in the small room without a stage was going to be a different experience.

Room 22 – Ricky Spanish

Anyone looking for a super talented, incredibly young band needs to look to Room 22. For fans of Green Day, these kids are absolutely killing Hull right now, and aren't stopping there with the release of new single 'Ricky Spanish'.

Get Up Go – You Jump I Jump

There's nothing more exciting than reviewing an EP by some fellow fast food lovers, which may have swayed me to like Manchester pop-punk band Get Up Go a little more than it should. This review is probably now entirely biased and redundant as a result. Drummer, Ross, even has the band's name on his bass drum skin mimicking the Burger King logo. I'll have fries with that any day.

Bearing Loss – Burdens

Hardcore 4-piece Bearing Loss just dropped their debut EP, Burdens, and it's massive. Like, it's well heavy, it's full of fat, chuggy riffs, and it kind of freaks me out, but I also like it, and I'm not sure how to feel...
