Manic Pop Stills – Real Anymore LP launch

Here’s a few tasters for the set of photos from last weekend’s Randolph’s Leap mini-LP launch. Friday was the first time I’ve used the camera at the Glad Cafe and they’ve all pretty much come out very soft focus and a bit bland (hence why some have been noised up in black and white.) Opening…

A Whole Lot of Yeah – The Everlasting Yeah interview

The blog’s title gives it away. I was a massive That Petrol Emotion fan back in the day. So you can imagine that I was delighted to discover recently that four former Petrols are active on the gigging front again in a new band – The Everlasting Yeah. Ahead of the band’s first headline show…

When the reckoning comes, this show will be right up there with the best gigs…

Killing Time – KillingFloor interview

KillingFloor are possibly a more ‘traditional’ band than those I usually write about (writes Andy Wood). By traditional I don’t mean they come decked in tartan and play Scottish country dance music but that they have a sleazy, garage-blues rock ‘n roll style, built on a groove and topped off by some fiery, raw slide…
