King King by Martin Tierney (68)

King King & Rhino’s Revenge Birmingham Town Hall Thursday 18th January 2018

Rhino’s Revenge bounce on stage and proceed to spend the next thirty minutes or so keeping us entertained with a brand of British rock packed with lyrical innuendo, working class social commentary, and some beefy meat and potato compositions played with flair, consummate showmanship and passion; starting with the mod moves of ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Blues’ dipping straight into the ...

The first is that when Mabel Greer’s Toyshop existed progressive rock did not exist per se but was percolating in the heady mix that was the London underground music ...

Dan Patlansky – Perfection Kills

The pursuit of perfection can be dangerous. Not only can it stiffle creativity it can eradicate the natural beauty that’s already there in favour of a pre-fabricated reality.

Steve Hackett: Wuthering Nights – Live In Birmingham

Steve Hackett has performed at Birmingham Symphony Hall a fair few times now. From my experience, he always makes a point of saying how much he enjoys performing at the place. Not surprising since it was specifically designed acoustically to suit orchestras, rock bands and solo performers alike and gives both them and audiences a clarity of sound rarely found ...

Black Country Communion – Wolverhampton Civic Hall, January 2nd 2018

I can trace my Black Country roots back to the 15th century. It’s not so much in pride as defence I declare this to a woman from West Bromwich who’s got a thing against “Brummies”.  In fact it’s incredibly territorial in Wolverhampton tonight, there’s a tall bloke proclaiming loudly: “He’s one of us and comes from Cannock!” That Glenn Hughes ...

JW Jones at The Robin 2: 28th November

Four piece support act The Hand & The Flowers make amiable sounds from onstage, ranging from a crunchy blues rock of the early ZZ Top persuasion on opening number ‘One Is The Truth, The other is A Lie’ to more Rory Gallagher styled rifferama on songs like ‘What You Want’ though their soloing is less frenetic. Most interesting are numbers ...
