Acid Reign – Central Live Music Venue – Wrexham.

30 years ago Acid Reign played a gig in Wrexham. I lived less than a mile from the venue, was a massive fan and had money in my pocket. And yet I didn’t go. I’m not sure why not. Maybe I thought I’d catch them next time. As Homer (of …

Crapfest 2021: Event Review

Well Crapfest! Once I’d finished embarrassing myself by walking into the wrong place, we entered EBGB's. I’d been told it was a sell out but wasn’t expecting the opening band to be playing to a packed basement. Ok no one had started actually jumping up and down but the vibe was definitely starting to build.

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes – Live at the O2 Academy, Brixton [Virtual Live Show Review with Melody VR]

Nothing quite beats the atmosphere of a live concert; the sweat-drenched walls, the chest-rattling bass lines and the ear-deafening screams of the crowd, but the recent Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes show, hosted exclusively on the Melody VR app (via smartphones and VR headsets), brought a truly immersive experience right …

British Lion – Chester Liverooms: 17th December 2019

The Agonist, Academy 2, Manchester – 3rd December 2019

When I reviewed The Agonists new album Orphans earlier in the year I was totally blown away. The song writing was thoughtful and thought provoking, the vocals ranged from angelic to demonic and the complex musicianship kept me going back to listen to each song over and over again. I …

Periphery – O2 Ritz Manchester – 14th November 2019

Periphery

Periphery are, what I would call, a snowball band. Let me explain, formed in 2005 they have got bigger and bigger until one day they bowled me over (imagine arms and legs flailing as a giant ball of snow rolls down a hill). Joking aside, I first heard Periphery on …

Static-X – Manchester Ritz – 3rd October 2019

Unfortunately, as I live over the border in Wales there was no way I could get from work to Manchester for Dope’s opening set. My apology’s guys catch you next time. Now, there are good supporting bands. Sometimes there are great bands. Then occasionally you get a band who, not only …

Rammstein – Milton Keynes – Saturday 6th July 2019

I normally avoid arena and stadium gigs like the plague but if one band was going to change my mind, then it has to be Rammstein, especially as they are only doing one UK gig here in 2019. Tickets were bought last November and the last eight months have seemed …

Twisted Illusion – Star And Garter, Manchester.

I had not planned to review this gig but being the last date on the tour and also no support bands meant that over two hours of music was promised by Twisted Illusion so it would be a shame to not document it. Notes were kept to a minimum so …
