    Derby - The Venue

    Tired of big venue stadium rock?  Need a change from predictable ColdPlay type bands?  The Guillemots at Derby (24th Nov) were refreshing & unique.  How can a band with a lead singer named 'Fyfe Dangerfield' not be...

    Manchester G-mex

    "We want more, we want more," chanted the crowd - after the 3 track encore.  James shrugged apologetically - we haven't got any more planned - waved & made to exit stage - but the crowd wouldn't have it;  back they came...

  • Let's Wrestle

    The Buffalo Bar, London

    Being signed to the same lable as Pete and the Pirates doesn't seem to phase Let's Wrestle: they plod on stage like a couple of grumpy teenagers and plough through their songs with a minimal amount of professionalism.

    However, far from...

  • Liars

    1 out of 5 2 out of 5 3 out of 5 4 out of 5 5 out of 5

    We'd been warned about seeing Liars. Rumour has it that the frontman is a crazy monkey, hell bent on disrupting the audience, swinging from the lights and insulting your mother.

    And the truth isn't far from that: Angus Andrew screams,...

    Purple Turtle

    It's possible that by the time these guys got onstage I was a little tipsy. But I wasn't excited by them. I was even stood at the bar while they were playing (it was taking FOREVER to get served). I'm pretty sure if they'd have been...

    93 Feet East, London

    Neat People are a brilliant headlining act. The really know how to draw in a crowd and it's always a good sign when as soon as the band start playing the room fills up. They do erm.... standard indie music. Which isn't the best way of...

    Fort Lauderdale Beach, Florida

    I went to the free concert on Fort Lauderdale Beach sponsored by the NFL in association with the Super Bowl. The closing act was OAR who I was not familiar with. They put on an enjoyable and musical set. The 6 piece band featured a sax which gave...

    The Forum, London

    It's rare that a support band are as good as the main act. Luckily, when i went to see Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly, their support from Pull Tiger Tail was so good I was pleased we got there early. They know how to warm up a crowd and everyone...
