It brought some intrigue but nothing that really sat in my mind as a must check out simply because the band that person ...

Razoreater – Vacuum of Nihil

Review: Razoreater – Vacuum of Nihil

Peterborough, a place with little going for it. Yes we have some great pubs, and a train station that can get us out and to better places easy enough, but when it comes to live venues for music of our tastes there is almost nothing.
