Mope: Dave Bowes Interviews The Italian Doom Jazz Protagonists

16th June 2014 at 10:06 am

Mope

Doom and jazz have never seemed like the most obvious of bedfellows, but are they really that different? They’re arguably two of the most polarising genres out there, with one lot decrying it as “a load of bloody noise” while the other ones are…

Sonance: Glen Westall Questions Guitarist Ben Chappell

12th June 2014 at 11:58 am

Sonance

It seemed apt to talk with Sonance after their set at Temples Festival, one of the most memorable and certainly unexpected gigs of the day. Though they’ve been together for a little while now it seems the band are finally getting into gear as…

Boris: Genre Defying Japanese ‘Rockers’ Are Quizzed By Stephen B Murray

9th June 2014 at 11:52 am

Boris - Photo by Miki Matsushima

It is a warm afternoon. Bright sunlight piles into the Lexington on Pentonville Road through large windows set in two adjacent walls. The pub is quiet, almost dead, save for the jukebox which crunches out some indie rock, presumably for the benefit of the…

3rd June 2014 at 10:02 am

Khuda - Live

Steve Myles and Tom Brooke have been making music together as Khuda since summer 2009. Myles’ virtuoso drumming and Brooke’s ubiquitous use of looper pedal riff layering, giving the duo a distinct, dynamic and multifaceted post-rock/metal sound. Touring extensively around the UK and Europe,…

Serpentine Path: Saúl Do Caixão Interrogates Vocalist Ryan Lipynsky

29th May 2014 at 12:16 pm

Serpentine Path

As sophomore albums go, the latest Serpentine Path record is about as good as it gets. It’s hard enough to create one great LP, but it’s harder still to follow it up with something that doesn’t feel like a disappointment. But then with Tim…

A Storm Of Light: 15 Minutes With Josh Graham

22nd May 2014 at 10:42 am

A Storm Of Light

It seems like day two of Temples was all about Josh Graham. His old comrades in Neurosis were headlining, he’d already played a stunning set with Mike Gallagher’s MGR and a few of his current bandmates and slap-bang in the middle of the day…

Neurosis: Dave Bowes Interviews Steve Von Till & Scott Kelly Before They Devastated Temples Festival

20th May 2014 at 10:11 am

Neurosis

It’s impossible to heap too much hyperbole on a band like Neurosis. They were game-changers when Through Silver In Blood first crushed heads back in ’96 and they’re still as innovative, spiritual and utterly devastating in 2014. The Sleeping Shaman managed to grab some…

Pilgrim: Sandy Williamson Questions Founding Member The Wizard

19th May 2014 at 11:34 am

Pilgrim

Rhode Island’s Pilgrim are everything you could want in a doom band born in these modern times. Relentlessly heavy, but imaginative and eccentric, Pilgrim take the warped thunder of Cathedral and Electric Wizard and twist them into new forms. I spoke to The Wizard…

Eindhoven based neo-psych heads Radar Men From The Moon (RMFTM) play and curate the Fuzz Club stage on the Eindhoven Psych Lab Saturday (7th of June). But who are they, what is Fuzz Club and what bands shouldn’t we miss according to them. And…

The Skull - Photo by Ty Klingsick

Renewed, refreshed, and with a sound hell-bent on crushing every head in the underground, classic Trouble (makers) Eric Wagner, Jeff “Oly” Olson & Ron Holzner teamed up with Lothar Keller & Matt Goldsborough to form The Skull. The band (sadly without Matt as he…
