Blink 182

A journey back to the 90’s with pop punk idols Blink182 setting the O2 Arena on fire.

Pop-punk legends Blink 182 were massively influential on my music tastes during my youth so I couldn’t wait to see them live. I was a bit worried since they cancelled their date in Bournemouth a couple of days before London due to Mark Hoppus falling ill but luckily they went on with their London shows. The O2 Arena was sold ...

Guns n roses London

Not In This Lifetime did we expect such a mind blowing outcome from the Guns N’ Roses reunion.

The excitement before Saturday’s gig is palpable as Guns N’ Roses have already played the night before leaving fans and sceptics positively speechless beyond all expectations. Two days of pure summer and rock ‘n roll in London, we couldn’t ask for more. The venue is the same of a year ago when Axl gave his best performance while filling in ...

Live Review: Kiss – O2 Arena, London

They say you never forget your first Kiss concert. For many in attendance tonight, it’s easy to see why they would never forget for a variety of reasons. I personally got chatting to a couple of people in the queues. A father and son both excited. One a veteran having seen Kiss multiple times in many countries. His son was ...

Live: CKY + Puppy, London Underworld

For a band with a cult following, CKY’s return to the UK after a six year hiatus was undoubtedly a welcome one. Having sold out their first date at the London Underworld with ease, it was no surprise that the band quickly announced a second date in the city, and the venue was packed out on a Monday night when ...

Live! Gojira, Code Orange & Car Bomb – The Forum, London

Gojira are BACK! It’s actually only been a few months since they last graced the UK with their presence. The difference being that this time sees them on their very own headline tour in support of their latest album ‘Magma’ which even at the time of writing this, is still currently happening. Back in November the band embarked upon a ...

Live: Airbourne, The Electric Ballroom, London

In this day and age, we’ve all heard it on the radio, read it in a magazine or online, that Rock and Roll is dead in some way or another. How idiotic a statement it is though! Music traverses through ages and develops as it goes, sometimes for good, sometimes for bad. Monday and Tuesday night in London was proof ...

Testament (6)

Live: Testament, Brooklyn Bowl, London

The typical nightmare of the London rush hour, British weather bringing torrents of rain and flooding, and then the break down of two tube trains on route to the O2 all tried their hardest to dampen the excitement of a unique night with one of thrash metals finest. Testament were in the capital and rather than just a night of ...

Melvins-2016

Live: The Melvins, The Koko, London

Never being a band to disappoint live, The Melvins were set with a headline performance that sadly never happened with the collapse of Temples Festival. Lucky for us fans however, a small ‘Basses Loaded’ tour around our small nation was making up for that, and we were lucky enough to get along to one of the finer venues of the ...

Interview: Raging Speedhorn

Back during Desertfest, we were lucky enough to grab ourselves an opportunity to catch up with Raging Speedhorn and see what’s going on in the world of RSH since we last saw them in December with guitarist Jamie Thampson (JT) and drummer Gordon Morrison (GM). Finding ourselves with beers in our bellies and hands, we stick ourselves in the heart ...
