Steve Hill The One-Man Blues Rock Band – In Concert

Steve Hill’s Solo Recording series of albums are pretty much all recorded live, so what could an actual album recorded live in front of a Canadian audience offer us that we couldn’t get on the studio ones?

Joe Bonamassa – Friday 16th March, Genting Arena, Birmingham

Lights go down a harmonica howls loud and an old blues number makes out like its speeding down a train track as from my vantage point I see Joe Bonamassa and his band, led by torches, walk a small flight of stairs and take up their positions on stage. Across the raised backline drummer Anton Fig on drums is shouldered ...

DON BROCO — The most adjustable scenester try-hards & pop-survivalists of the 21st century.

British rock four piece DON BROCO released their third album Technology this month. The new album finds the band filtering their post-hardcore rock through the percolation filter of a 1980s pop-machine, and then finger-testing the results before adding a swirl-or-two of clotty cream: these twists come in the form of metal, funk and electronics.
