Early last year I was scrolling through music links posted by various friends on Facebook when I happened upon Idles (pic above & below by Lindsay Melbourne) and the video for ‘Mother’, I think it was singer Joe Talbot’s pink suit that caught my eye but that was just the start of it. The song smacked me straight between the eyes and I was soon ploughing through more links on YouTube to find out more about the band. I purchased their debut album ‘Brutalism’ immediately and I promised myself that I would go and see them live at the earliest opportunity!

Neil Crud on TudnoFM – Show 104 – with Saint Stevie in Session

I saw Saint Stevie play a drunken performance at Pie Records, Rhos-On-Sea a couple of months ago and immediately booked him in for a live session. His Bathroom Tapes albums Vol 1 and 2 are available on Bandcamp and possess a certain charm that you’ll hear in the session.

GIG REVIEW – Troika, Sudor, Tanning Bats @ Schwester Martha, Berlin

Attempting to shake off the hangover of yesterday, I sought solace with a few beers and punk rock in the afternoon. Schwester Martha (the venue) took a little bit of finding at it’s secret location.

GIG REVIEW – Red Dons, Tarantula, Kieltolaki, Negativ @ SO36, Berlin

Nothing Nice To Say Festival is now in its third year. A four day event held at select venues across Berlin, and unlike other similar ‘city based’ events, there are no bands clashing – so you can get to see all who play. It brings together hardcore, punk, post-punk acts and like minded people from across the globe. I met up with Nicole who was kind enough to chaperone me through the streets of the city that never sleeps and educate me on the anarchist / squatting history of Berlin, in particular the anarchist band Ton Steine Scherben who immediately struck me as a prototype Stooges.
