16th May 2014 at 10:19 am

Goatess @ The Star & Garter, Manchester 09/05/2014

The debut outing for Goatess in Manchester got off to a rocky start, running almost two hours late due to horrendous traffic issues for both Serpent Venom and the headliners. However, this didn’t seem to dampen the spirits early on and has now almost…

Ovvl / Groan / Molly Bloom / Ten Foot Wizard @ The Star & Garter, Manchester 11/12/2013

10th January 2014 at 9:49 am

Ovvl / Groan / Molly Bloom / Ten Foot Wizard @ The Star & Garter, Manchester 11/12/2013

It didn’t bode well. A bill composed of bands of varying degrees of ‘Who??‘, playing a venue that seems to have seen a significant downturn in attendance over the last few years – allegedly down to its ‘inconvenient’ location – on a wet ‘n’…

Windhand / Pilgrim / BongCauldron @ The Star & Garter, Manchester 05/11/2013

26th November 2013 at 8:55 am

Windhand @ The Star & Garter, Manchester 05/11/2013

Despite the Bonfire Night bumper to bumper traffic going into south Manchester, I arrived just in time to see Yorkshire’s BongCauldron plug in and fire up, even though initially I had no idea who they were. Ignoring their truly uninspired name (that I would…

Samothrace / Bell Witch / Black Magician @ The Star & Garter, Manchester, 07/05/2013

14th May 2013 at 9:44 am

Samothrace @ The Star & Garter, Manchester, 07/05/2013

England was experiencing its first sunny spell since something like 2005 which meant that the already sweltering pub/sweatbox known as the Star and Garter was going to get even hotter in the name of doom. A packed crowd was never realistically going to happen…

Bongripper / Conan / Humanfly / Nomad @ The Star & Garter, Manchester 21/04/2013

Bongripper / Conan / Humanfly / Nomad @ The Star & Garter, Manchester 21/04/2013

This was the fitting consolation for those North Westerners who didn’t go to Roadburn 2013. YAY! I’m back in Thee Star & Garter, Manchester’s grimy piss-scented home of the RIFF. It lives here, skulking in the cellar with the beer and the rats. It…

Ides Of Gemini / Bastard Of The Skies / Black Magician @ The Star & Garter, Manchester 20/09/2012

26th September 2012 at 11:17 am

Ides Of Gemini @ The Star & Garter, Manchester 20/09/2012

Black Magician kick off tonight with some Olde English Doom Metal as they describe it, they lay somewhere between the occult revival lot which seem to be popular right now, and early Prog worship, making it difficult to place them. The closet thing I…

Black Tusk / Okkultokrati / Arke / Jacknife Holiday @ The Star & Garter, Manchester 10/07/2012

16th July 2012 at 8:15 am

Black Tusk @ The Star & Garter, Manchester 10/07/2012

Black Tusk were last seen at The Star and Garter in April and so it’s fair to say that the band were impressed with the UK’s dedication to the riff. This time round, they took the headline spot with black sludge lunatics Okkultokrati as…

Pine Barrens - Manchester

The Star & Garter, Manchester 13/10/2011 Most of the best experiences I have had at gigs have been surprises, bands that I watched simply out of curiosity not expecting much have often come out and left me floored, Church Of Misery was one of…
