ALTERNATIVE MUSIC REVIEWS

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...

Young Guns w/ support from Twin Wild and Contours @ Welly Club, Kingston-Upon Hull

Welly, to me, seems like an unlikely venue for Young Guns to play in this day and age. But they left one word to describe this gig and that word is intimate. When a huge band, such as Young Guns, who play internationally decide that they want to play in a 200 capacity music venue in the small city of Hull, you can imagine it gets hot, it gets sweaty and the atmosphere is better than ever...

Area 11 San Tour In Glasgow. With Support from Yeah Detroit

Area 11 are a perfect fusion of J rock with western rock. The electric rock feel to their songs gives you a fun, happy feel and it shows on stage as they really know how to have fun. It felt that like they were just jamming in the garage and you (and 150 others) were just watching them have a mess around. Read full review here...
