GIG REVIEW – Palm, Friendship, Kurokuma @ Rebellion, Manchester

Sunday night is Japanese hardcore night, right?  Trekking from Chiba and Osaka in spite of all manner of natural disasters hindering them it was no relative effort to get up from North Wales to check this feast of fury.  And Kurokuma would have had to negotiate the Snake Pass from Sheffield, never easy.   I’d seen them before, and Palm amid the insanity of Obscene Extreme, but the main draw was definitely Friendship who’s recent “Hatred” album really grabbed the attention like having your ears boxed with its brutal tones.  Even for little old desensitized-through-overexposure me.

GIG REVIEW – Pete Bentham & The Dinner Ladies @ Invisible Wind Factory, Liverpool

[review by Rich Phillips]
[Neil Crud] Super, smashing, great – what a fantastic gig… Euphorically I stated ‘Gig of the year so far…’ and in the stark cold reality of the next morning, I’ll stand by that statement…
It’s a big thing to put on your own birthday party and hope people will turn up and pay to get in – we came in our droves… For tonight is a celebration, the tenth anniversary of Pete Bentham & The Dinner Ladies – a get together with all the previous members of this excellent off the wall not-quite-punk-but-not-post-punk-either band.
I’ll hand over the biro to Rich Phillips…

It’s as much about the venue as it is the performers who appear here. The quirkiness of decor, the proprietor and the performer… It all adds up to a fine unconventional evening.
