The Black Sheep live

posted July 27th, 2009 · posted by Dan Tuesday · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

On: 25/07/09
At: The Croft, Bristol

The Black Sheep, the anarchist and revolutionary collective fronted by Julian Cope, play their first show in Bristol, a mixed media event featuring artwork, films and music. An eclectic crowd have turned up which suits the varied styling of the group and being what looked like the second youngest person there I almost felt an [...]

Madstock

posted July 21st, 2009 · posted by imelda · marked as: Live reviews · Photos · Reviews

On: 17th July 2009
At: Victoria Park, London

Welcome to the house of fun! Fairground rides actually rival the number of beer tents and a weighty proportion of the crowd is sporting Madness-themed fancy dress – something tells me no one is taking anything too seriously today at this family-friendly festival.

London Zine Symposium 2009

posted July 10th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Columns · Live reviews · Photos

On: 03/05/09
At: The Rag Factory

This year we celebrated five years of holding a zine symposium in London. Each year it seems to get bigger; and this year was by far the biggest yet. Over 60 different distros, creators, writers and artists…

Glastonbury Festival 2009 – Part 3

posted July 3rd, 2009 · posted by tommy · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

On Sunday morning I awoke expecting a much more chilled out day than the two that came before. I had no plans of chasing bands between stages and had no real schedule to fulfill, as long as I managed to catch Madness and Brand New i’d be okay, was the general consensus floating around my head.

Glastonbury Festival 2009 – Part 2

posted July 2nd, 2009 · posted by tommy · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

I woke up on Saturday knowing one thing, it would be the day I finally saw The Boss live, I just knew I’d have to get through another day of brilliant music before I saw him though, or so I thought.

Glastonbury Festival 2009- Part 1

posted July 2nd, 2009 · posted by tommy · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

Different people approach things in very different ways, and can have highly divergent experiences whilst, pretty much, doing the same thing. This was to become a theme of, if not a lesson learned from my weekend at Glastonbury 2009, and one that began to manifest itself up to a week before the festival started.

Bridge and Tunnel

posted April 27th, 2009 · posted by tommy · marked as: Live reviews · Photos · Reviews

On: 18/04/09
At: The Windmill, Brixton

I didn’t know Bridge and Tunnel’s music particularly well, but they had blown me away at the Fest last October, based on my previous experience and his enthusiasm, I knew that anyone who came to this show was in for a treat.

Frank Turner Instore

posted March 29th, 2009 · posted by imelda · marked as: Live reviews · Photos

On: 7/03/2009
At: Pure Grooves, Farringdon, London

Frank Turner claims to be haunted by the scene from Spinal Tap where no-one turns up for an instore appearance. He really didn’t have anything to worry about today. Pure Grooves, the record shop/cafe tucked away behind London’s Smithfield market, is packed to capacity and a few ardent fans even have to settle for the pavement outside.

On: 12/03/09
At: Cross Kings

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

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

On: 03/03/09
At: Underworld

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. [...]
