Live review: Sleaford Mods

Sleaford Mods are on a roll that has brought the duo to another sold-out venue, Edinburgh’s La Belle Angele. Review by Nick Mitchell It seems remarkable that, on a Wednesday night in Edinburgh (a city whose gig-going population is often unfairly accused of being the stay-at-home types), several hundred people have turned up to see a band like …

Norwich Sound & Vision 2015 – review

Norwich Sound & Vision – now in its sixth year – has slowly but steadily been making a name for itself in the otherwise hectic “metropolitan festival” schedule. Thinking about it, it probably hasn’t been too hard: book some of the biggest names in the up-and-coming indie scene to play a provincial city often exempt …

Live review: Tenement Trail

Tenement TV’s multi-venue festival, Tenement Trail, took Glasgow by storm this weekend with the biggest and most eclectic line-up to date. Sauchiehall Street and neighbouring Bath Street form the main hub of a grid-like gig circuit, which sees dedicated fans (and the usual dedicated drunks) zipping back and forth past one another throughout the course of …

Live review: Allusondrugs

Allusondrugs played the Owl Sanctuary in Norwich as part of their UK tour.

Live review: Public Image Ltd

Alex Nelson gives his verdict on Public Image Ltd live at Norwich UEA The last time I got the chance to catch Public Image Ltd live I left halfway through due to the influence of a then girlfriend bemused by the caterwauling of John Lydon (it “wasn’t for her”). That’s exactly the sort of thing that …
