11 months ago / 0 comments

ILuvLive, a touring project dedicated to showcasing up-and-coming artists in various cities across the UK, recently had a show at Leeds’ very own Headrow House. To commemorate the event, Zack Moore spoke to ILuvLive owner Rachael Bee, about both the workings of the festival and its future. I began by … Read More

‘Concrete and Gold’ by Foo Fighters

12 months ago / 0 comments

Right from the intro track, you can tell this album is going to be a mess of poorly-executed radio-rock clichés. Or rather, it foreshadows it, because the first half of the record is actually alright, with the singles ‘Run’ and ‘Sky Is A Neighbourhood’ revealing solid, if not a bit … Read More

The Brooders @ Brudenell Social Club, 24/03/17

1 year ago / 0 comments

The Brooders played the Brudenell this Friday to a half-empty crowd of mostly disappointed faces, on account of headlining act Fighting Caravans dropping out a few hours before the show. Not that it matters in the slightest, however, because the band still managed to deliver a performance that would have … Read More

Preview: Iron Maiden @ First Direct, 11/5/17

1 year ago / 0 comments

What more can be said of Iron Maiden that hasn’t been said already? Instrumental to the success of the NWOBHM scene of the early ‘80s, early pioneers of both the Progressive and Melodic metal subgenres, and possibly metal’s best-known band outside of Black Sabbath and Metallica, Iron Maiden have reached … Read More

In The Middle with Hawkwind

2 years ago / 0 comments

  I recently spoke to Richard Chadwick, the very-underrated drummer of space-rock pioneers Hawkwind, about his thoughts on modern psychedelic music, and was very surprised to say the least to find that his hopes for psychedelia’s future lay in experimental black metal. And as if that wasn’t interesting enough, he … Read More

In the Middle with The Stranglers

Very few people ever get to meet their favourite bands, but Barry “Baz” Warne took it a step further, and actually became the frontman of his favourite band, The Stranglers, in 2006, after becoming their guitarist in 2000. I ask him if he listens to much modern punk. “Not really. … Read More

Why Love Now by Pissed Jeans

2 years ago / 0 comments

Why Love Now, the newest and rather emotively-titled album from Pissed Jeans, is possibly their most accessible release yet. For many bands, that’s usually an indicator of a drop in quality as well, but I’ve found myself enjoying this album much more than the band’s more critically-acclaimed, abrasive works, such … Read More

Sleeping Through The War by All Them Witches

2 years ago / 0 comments

Sleeping Through The War is the most spaced-out and mellow album that All Them Witches have ever made, although I’m not sure that’s a good thing. To the album’s credit, as with all albums that the band has released, every track presented has its own individual take on the band’s … Read More

In The Middle with FREAK

2 years ago / 0 comments

I recently spoke to FREAK, who sometimes goes by Connor Ridd, an up-and-coming alternative rock artist from Clemsford, who is mainly known for last year’s extremely energetic What Happened? EP, which earned him the title of a ‘One-Man Nirvana’ by the Guardian. After recently dropping out of a music production … Read More

In The Middle with Martha Wainwright

2 years ago / 0 comments

Speaking to someone as interesting as folk artist/singer-songwriter Martha Wainwright was an exciting and intriguing prospect, so of course I began by asking her about her Christmas holidays. “They were good. We always have a kind of work holiday I guess, because every year for a while now we’ve been … Read More
