GIG REVIEW – 999, Bite Back, Spam Javelin @ Salty Dog, Northwich

By |October 28th, 2018|1 Comment


Firstly, The Salty Dog is a fantastic venue. It’s purpose built for bands and run by people who care about bands. It’s not a pub with a space… It’s a venue with real ales, with a stage, with a house PA and a house back-line (terms like that mean a lot to bands!). If I had the guts I’d run a place like this… but I don’t, so instead I’ll try and support it as best I can…

Paul Henshaw returns to perform his second live session on Neil Crud’s TudnoFM show. It was no nonsense (unlike his live shows) and he played a couple of songs off his new EP ’56A’ (which I’m told is not a bra size) plus something old and something brand new. Paul is now on a mammoth tour taking in the UK, Czech, Holland, Belgium and Germany before culminating on Dec 9th… Be sure to catch him wherever you are..

In April of this year I saw IDLES play at ‘Gorilla’ in Manchester on the ‘Unity’ tour, it was a small venue with a capacity of around 500, it was absolutely rammed in there, the gig was mental and I wrote in my review afterwards that the band wouldn’t be playing venues this size next year due to their ever rising popularity. Long before that night I was telling everyone and anyone who would listen that IDLES were about to go big!

Filmed in their hometown of Conwy in North Wales, Emissaries Of Syn bring you a video for their song Invested Interest.
Taken off their International Split EP (on bandcamp) the band have enough strings to their bow to actually take a bow! In their relatively short existence they have played in Belgium, Russia, Holland, Czech, Germany and Rhyl…!

Wow… What can I say? I’m still in shock after an incredible live session from Liverpool’s Forever In Debt – they literally smashed their songs through the roof… Incredible… Check them out on Society Of Losers Records… Listen to the whole show below…
