Live From London : Frankie Lee, St Pancras Old Church (12/11/2015)

Frankie Lee is a travelling man, that much was plain to see straight from the opening lines of his set opener at St Pancras Old Church, “East Side Blues”; “When I’m on the south side, I got nowhere to roam, sit and watch the sky fall down, a stranger in your own damn town”. The […]

Live From London : The Cribs, The Roundhouse (28/10/2015)

More than a decade has passed since Wakefield’s famous sons, The Jarmans burst onto the early Noughties indie scene. Fittingly, this Roundhouse show was presented by the band as their rightful return to Camden; a place that has launched them into the consciousnesses of the London based music industry. “I think we’ve now played every […]

With a name that sounds like the re-imagining of a violin trio by the cast of Easy Rider, it should have come as no surprise that The Cadillac Three drew to Dingwalls a crowd packed out with denim jackets, plaid shirts and free-flowing male hair. Viewed by many as much needed purists on the country rock […]

The compact London venue hidden round quiet street corners within spitting distance of the bright lights of Oxford Circus was built with punk club, rock’n’roll chic in mind.

Live From London : The Wytches, Scala (03/12/2014)

Despite their fresh-faced appearance, Brighton trio, The Wytches draw on the lineage of feedback-drenched rock running from the Pixies to Nirvana via 00s Brit bands, Nine Black Alps and The Subways, with a sprinkling of The Horrors debut LP’s cartoon goth-ness. As The Libertines’ recent comeback shows prove, audience appetites haven’t faded for down and dirty rock n’ […]

Live From London : Pale, Shoreditch House (24/11/2014)

Pale are a London-based electronica band who make pensive, emotive tunes. Currently gigging as a two-piece, their show at Shoreditch House in East London tonight saw their songs stripped bare and reliant on vocalist Alan’s silvery delivery and sparse guitar riffs, with mid-tempo beats coming from his partner, Lee’s drum machine. Showing influences from chil-lwave bands from […]
