Diva Demolition formed in Brisbane, Australia in 2013 from the ashes of progressive rock punk band Legless. They were the Australian national support for the international Monster Tour of Kiss, Mötley Crüe and Thin Lizzy. They have also supported Aerosmith in New Zealand and Australia.

The Globe, Cardiff Fair play, anyone who can get a people off their arse to a show on a Monday night must be doing something fucking right. Not a bad turnout in the Welsh capital who still seemed to be drunk-pumped from the rugby result a few days prior. “So, who’s been to North Korea then?” cautiously chuckles Dead Shed ...Read More »

For Kakaty, these were natural elements found in the songs he grew up with: the groovy soul of Motown, the grand funk of the railroad, the proto ...Read More »

Irish singer-songwriter Glen Hansard returns with his honest brand of acoustic led rock on new album Between Two Shores. For those unfamiliar with Hansard think Frank Turner meets Idlewild vocalist Roddy Woomble’s solo work.

For the second time in a week, ex-Misfits frontman Michale Graves decided to play Cardiff’s legendary Fuel Rock Bar. The highly anticipated punk legend certainly made an impression after selling out four nights previously, but returns to an oversold crowd of 30 people or so. Though not the biggest of venues, this difference turns Fuel into a condensed powder keg ...Read More »
