Bowling For Soup

Live Review: Bowling For Soup, O2 Academy, Newcastle

If you don’t remember Bowling For Soup the first time around, they came to attention in the surreal punk-pop revival in the late 90s/early 00s along with Blink 182, New Found Glory and Good Charlotte. The good news is a lot of these bands are still around  (NFG,Jimmy Eat World) and for some it has been a bit of a ...

Helloween

Live Review: Helloween, Rage, COP UK

We arrived early to the old and battered building of the O2 Forum is Kentish town.

Live Review: Steven Wilson @ Hammersmith Apollo

Calming, yet desolate urban scenes of high-rise apartment blocks and the odd green-space provide the backdrop to the intro. Arriving on stage to a raucous applause, each musician takes their station for a smooth transition to opening track, ‘First Regret.’ Initially too bass-heavy, the sound is quickly rectified in time for the first drop that comes in ‘3 Years Older.’ ...

The band seem to play through the numbers with what seems like a rather generic sound, but they and the front ...

Live Review: Cancer Bats, at Sub89 Reading

The first support band is Incite all the way from Phoenix, AZ. People should always show up for the first band, that’s how you discover awesome new bands such as these guys! I am immediately loving the brutality of this band. They have the sort of power and aggression that I crave from bands these days. Richie C on vocals ...
