GIG REVIEW – Paul Henshaw, Rabo De Toro, Spam Javelin @ The Pot, Rhyl

I had walked three miles this afternoon in biblical rain with a hangover so bad I almost turned to religion to cleanse myself from the alcoholic sins committed the previous night.

GIG REVIEW – Peter Murphy, Desert Mountain Tribe @ The Ritz, Manchester

By |December 4th, 2018|0 Comments

I saw Bauhaus on their Resurrection tour in 1998, it was a dream come true back then (still is). I absorbed every second, breathed every molecule. It was my nirvana to see a band that had meant so much to me as a kid who was born at the wrong time and in the wrong town.
With their well documented falling outs over the years putting paid to any potential re-resurrections it was with piqued interest to see that both Peter Murphy and David J had reconciled to celebrate (cash in) 40 years of the debut album In The Flat Field and take it around the world.

LISTEN AGAIN – Neil Crud On TudnoFM – Show #136

By |December 3rd, 2018|0 Comments

Habits are ace and they’re from Colwyn Bay. This punk band crashed onto the scene a couple of years ago, they did a few donuts and wheel spins then screeched off across the country, occasionally ram raiding North Wales with their incendiary performances.
A new album is being written and more gigs planned in the new year, so it was an honour to get them to play live in the studio for us… (bandcamp)

GIG REVIEW – Cockney Rejects @ The Live Rooms, Chester

By |November 29th, 2018|1 Comment

I must have a subconscious quest to support / open for bands from my teenage record collection. With the likes of UK Subs, 999, Stiff Little Fingers, Culture Shock already chalked off the list, to support the Cockney Rejects is an absolute honour.
‘Don’t be so fackin stupid, we’ve got holes in our arses just like you,’ said Mickey Geggus after I had told them I was feeling a little starstruck. They gave me a group hug.
