  • She Makes War

    The Grosvenor, Stockwell

    She Makes War is the stage name of musician Laura Kidd. She doesn't have (or need) a band, but she does have a guitar and a distortion pedal. Despite looking sweet, the girl can make some noise.

    She got a great voice that carried...

  • Spiritualized

    The Union Chapel, London

    It's been ten years since every teenager in the UK smoked cannabis to 'Ladies and Gentlemen we are Floating in Space', but Jason Pierce and his group are still wearing their metaphorical astronaut helmets.

    And what better place to...

    Wembley Stadium

    I like Supergrass. I was excited about seeing the support the Foos. I was really dissapointed.

    They're great at small, intimate gigs. But they just aren't a stadium band. I don't even think they're a huge venue band. They can't...

  • The Foxes

    Purple Turtle, London

    The Foxes are the perfect band to headline an Indie night. Which isn't necessarily a compliment. They go onstage, do their thing, and it's very good. But that's it.

    They're on their UK tour at the moment, which did a quick fly-by in...

    Concorde 2, Brighton UK

    The Kooks are and indie band based in Brighton, England having a few mainstream hits such as 'Naive' and 'She Moves in Her Own Way'. The show took place at the Concorde 2, which is a smaller venue which was perfect for the acoustic set. It was...

    The    W*NKMEN

    OK. So have you ever wondered what you get if you let a group of 5 (though the keyboardist seemed to be substituted after the fifth song) MONKEYS hit musical instruments with bits of wood - LOOK NO FURTHER! Here...

    Knitting Factory

    Well the first disappointment of the evening was the opening act: Jonathan Coulton.  I have never heard of him before, but he started his stage show with a comedy bit I have seen done better by a ton of comedians about how he was supposed to...

    Pleasure Unit, Bethnal Green

    THiS iS MY PARTY TRiCK are fantastic. Their lyrics are brilliant and they're fun to watch. They make going out and watching bands in London fun.

    They have a very original sound, which is a bit Hoosiers, a bit Guillimots. But other...

  • Untitled 61

    Bar Academy, Islington

    Untitled 61 are pretty good. They went on stage a little later than expected, but they held the crowd pretty well. By not singing for a huge amount of the time. Strange. I'm all for great riffs and guitar solos, but for me, it's not the point...

  • We Are Spies

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

    Purple Turtle, London

    I think I wanted We Are Spies to be better than they were. There was nothing wrong with them, not at all. But they were just a bit... generic.

    It's a shame as I had a chat with them before they went on stage and they're lovely guys....
