Ufomammut / Coltsblood @ Soup Kitchen, Manchester 08/10/2015

19th October 2015 at 7:16 pm

Ufomammut @ Soup Kitchen, Manchester 08/10/2015

From experience, Manchester’s Northern Quarter is a frustrating combination of the genuinely odd and creative as well as the leeches who just want to soak it up because their record collection sounds cooler if you don’t know how to pronounce the band names. Soup…

Ufomammut / Jex Thoth @ Islington Academy, London 09/10/2015

Ufomammut @ Islington Academy, London 09/10/2015

From the moment I step inside the Islington Academy, its clear that Jex Thoth’s live show is all about the atmosphere. As the band’s gear gradually takes shape around the stage, gothic candles flicker and the heavy scent of burning sandalwood fills the room,…

Temples Festival 2015 – Day 3 Review By Dave Bowes

15th July 2015 at 7:42 pm

Temples Festival - 2015

We all knew it was going to happen. Arriving at the venue to find that stage times have been pushed back by an hour, rumours abound about the long-lasting effects of Sunn O)))’s ritual devastation last night. They killed the soundboard; nine people ended…

Temples Festival 2015 – Day 2 Review By Dave Bowes

14th July 2015 at 6:51 pm

Temples Festival - 2015

Breakfast is sorted, the sun’s about as out as it’s ever going to be and the local beer and cider have been flowing heavily, to the extent that extra supplies are brought in to cope with punters essentially drinking the place dry. Also, it’s…

Temples Festival 2015 – Day 1 Review By Dave Bowes

13th July 2015 at 6:56 pm

Temples Festival - 2015

As far as I can tell, there are two types of festival people. There are the rare few who’ll have their hotels and flights booked as soon as the dates are announced and then there are the ones who’ll at least wait on the…

The second day of Psych Lab is looking good. A great line-up with a lot of variation. We’re in luck when it comes to the weather. The stormy night before has brought much needed relief to the temperatures, which are much more bearable now….

Earthless / Nasdaq @ The Roadhouse, Manchester

Travelling over a hundred miles up the M6 to catch this two-band bill brings me mixed emotions. The Roadhouse, on Newton Street, Manchester, is due for permanent closure on May 31st – the latest in a long-line of high profile live music venues in…

Mudhoney @ Effenaar, Eindhoven 03/05/2015 - Photo by Patrick Spruytenburg

It’s not such a big deal to see Mudhoney in the Effenaar in Eindhoven. They played there a few times before… Just realize that the last time was actually 23 years ago and this makes yours truly feel very young again (I was 7…
