Live Review: The Clause and Callow Youth – Jimmy’s, Manchester

There’s been a lot of buzz about Birmingham based The Clause, and when I found they were playing Manchester Jimmy’s with Callow Youth it had to be done. However their future career may turn out, The Clause will rightly be hugely proud to have completed a full sell out tour while aged just 19/20; all the more remarkable because it is just the guys of … Continue reading Live Review: The Clause and Callow Youth – Jimmy’s, Manchester

The rest of the track from this North East five piece lives up to this initial promise with a thrusting punchy alt-rock … Continue reading Local Talent: Motherland – Where I Belong

EP Review: roves – a strung out pilot

Reading based roves follow in their daring push-the-boundaries style with their fresh new EP a strung out pilot.

Live Review: The Amazons – Key Club, Leeds

Towards the end of 2018, one of the most beautiful shows I’ve been at, to date, took place at the Brudenell Social Club. The Amazons played to a sell-out crowd in support of Joe Glew, a young man who died from Leukaemia, not long before the show. It was a rousing, wonderful show and it signalled the end of the previous era for the Amazons. … Continue reading Live Review: The Amazons – Key Club, Leeds

South London Epsom based Foreign TV are turning this early hours need into a niche with their second quality single Magnets. There’s a nice late night jazzy feel … Continue reading Artist Feature: Foreign TV
