Project Serendipity

October 26th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

I don’t know why I’ve never reviewed this CD, in fact I don’t even know if it is still available (but it probably is). However if you really want to hear it and it’s not still available, by some happy chance I have two copies so hit me up for one. This record is so [...]

Mouthwash

October 22nd, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

I am ashamed I haven’t written this review sooner. Truly ashamed. I was so excited to get hold of this CD earlier in the year, after anticipating it for so long and rinsing my friends’ iPods when they had got it, but then work and moving house and generally not being very reliable at writing [...]

Jaya The Cat

August 9th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

Another hideously early start to an evening at the Underworld, I arrived at 7.30 in time to catch most of Gecko’s set. Over the two weeks around Rebellion Festival, the venue has been putting on lots of punk shows one night after another. It’s a really cool idea, but I think this show was the [...]

Badtown TV

August 3rd, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: Other reviews · Reviews

Well, where to start with this? If I start by saying Jhon from Pickled Dick (…oops…Mike TV) takes a starring role in this brand new internet music and other general rubbish TV show, a lot of you will probably already be guessing it’s a shambles. And you’d be right. But it’s a glorious shambles.
As it [...]

Neil Sutherland and Friends / Limited Means

August 2nd, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

This was the first of (hopefully) many free shows at the Raven, a pub opposite some tube stop in west London that I’d never heard of. Lots of people were commenting on how weird it was having a punk rock show in a gastro pub, but a lot of the locals seemed to enjoy the [...]

Mark Thomas

March 13th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

Tonight was a benefit organised by No Sweat, and money raised was also going towards Nueva Generacion. This is a collective raising money for a new social centre in Colombia, and they got a chance to take the mic as well as someone from the Colombia Solidarity Campaign, which was pretty interesting.
Descending into the Cross [...]

Chris Murray

March 6th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

For £6.50 tonight was going to be a blinder from the outset. The price included four bands, three of whom I already thought were wicked, including living legend one-man-ska-band Chris Murray.
The 7.30 start meant the place was pretty empty for Squab, which was a shame as this band is probably my favourite of the moment. [...]

Reel Big Fish

March 5th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: Live reviews · Photos · Reviews

This was my first outing to the ‘HMV’ Forum, and I’m sad to report that not much has changed: the bar is still overpriced, the toilets scuzzy, and the sound awful. However this wasn’t going to put a dampener on my night.

Broadway Calls

March 3rd, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

Formalities first: apologies for the terribleness of this review, and only actually covering one band. I was feeling pretty ill and so headed home before either The Audition or Alkaline Trio had played.
I was gutted to have missed Broadway Calls earlier on their tour in Kingston, as their S/T CD is pretty much constantly blaring [...]

Joey Cape

February 6th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Joey Cape is awesome. Suburban Home is awesome for churning out so much good shit at the moment. If you don’t know who Joey is, where have you been? He’s the frontman of punk rock mainstays Lagwagon, and now-disbanded indie rockers Bad Astronaut. He also finds time to tour and record with covers supergroup Me [...]
