Butser Fest

Butserfest Pre-Review 2012

You may think festival season stops at the end of August, but if you think the party’s over you are truly misinformed. With this years’ summer festivals being a bit of a drag, we all remember the mud plains of Download Festival, and the cancellation of Sonisphere, so it’s the smaller festivals that are coming out on top and Petersfield’s ...

Hevy Festival 2012 Review

If I could sum up Hevy Fest 2012 in one sentence… I’d be out of a job, but more importantly I’d be doing this year’s festival no justice what so ever. In the run up to the festival I was deliberating the chances of a niche line up along with forty days and forty nights of torrential flooding and squelchy ...

With reviews from Kerrang, interviews in Planet Loud, and with the backing of Marianne Harris they have been able to propel themselves outside of being just another local band.

NASS Festival Review 2012

NASS Festival is very different to the normal music festival, as not only is it host to some great artist, but also the BMX  and Skateboarding  Championships. You can bring your bike, scooter, skateboard, or skates to the festival. There are public ramps for people to practice new tricks.  I was excited by the massive motocross jumps, however due to ...

Review By Oli Bateman Golden Tanks – Golden Tanks E.P   The first thing you should know about this review, is the fact that I am conducting it without a press release. Normally as any budding music journalist will tell you, a press release is a short bio sent out by the band, the bands label, or a PR company ...

New Riot ‘Live Fast, Die Young’ Track Review

By Oli Bateman   Its 2003, I’m Thirteen years old, and I’m being crowd surfed from the back of the main hall at Exeter Uni, right to the front of the stage for the hundredth time that evening. The support acts as I vaguely remember them, were a punk band called the Riot Dolls, and another band that were just ...

Bruce Springsteen ‘Wrecking Ball’ Album Review

Review By David Lamb   Wrecking Ball is an angry album, and the subject of its wrath is one that Springsteen has covered before: the life-destroying effects of an economic depression inspired the dark and minimalistic 1982 record Nebraska, a solo effort put down solo in a garage, with only a 4-track recorder and a few instruments. Whilst that record ...

Apocalyptic Love – Slash feat. Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators

By Martin Durrant Slash is a name that is synonymous with rock and roll. His very image provides the essence of the music we all love, his top hat bouncing maniacally on his lone curly hair as he dances across the stage, guitar slung low.
