Gig Review: Ron Pope @ The Fleece – 09/02/14

Ron Pope brought his UK tour to a close on Sunday 9th February at The Fleece, one of Bristol’s oldest and most popular music venues. First to take to the stage was Alexz Johnson, a Canadian singer-sing-writer. Johnson’s classic, ‘girl-next-door’ beauty is completely misleading. Where you expect Taylor Swift you get Norah Jones meets Stevie […]

Gig Review: The Wave Pictures @ The Louisiana – 07/02/14

On the evening of 7th February, The Wave Pictures played at The Louisiana, Bathurst Terrace. This pub is one of those remarkable venues whose tiny stage has hosted huge names in the infancy of their success. On the walls you can see the back catalogue of performers: The Vines, The Kings of Leon, Goldfrapp and […]

Gig Review: John Bramwell @ The Louisiana – 06/02/14

As the wind and rain came down on Thursday night, it was apt that Bristol was to host a very Northern evening at The Louisiana. Confident, young singer-songwriter Dave Fidler opened proceedings, having been brought on this tour after he caught the eye of tonight’s headliner and I Am Kloot frontman, John Bramwell, whilst gigging […]

Gig Review: The Boxer Rebellion @ Thekla – 06/02/2014

Thekla was the perfect setting for The Boxer Rebellion’s show on the evening of Thursday 6th February. This band’s music calls for a small, dark (even, dare I say it, grunge-y) setting to allow the energy of the songs to literally bounce off the walls and the atmospheric rock they create to be truly appreciated. […]

Album Review: Bombay Bicycle Club – ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’

You know those albums that make no big impression, where each song just blurs into one forgettable blend? Initially, Bombay Bicycle Club’s new one, So Long, See You Tomorrow appears to be one of those disappointing releases. However, it is in fact one of those records which gradually grows on you until you begin to […]

Music Blog: Albums That Never Get Old

My Chemical Romance - Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys To truly decide which album will never get old for me, I looked at the most-played songs in my iTunes account and noticed that most of them came from one album: My Chemical Romance – Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous […]

Feature: Love Saves the Day 2014 – The Line-Up

A few hours ago a pretty substantial chunk of the Love Saves the Day line up was released and no doubt this will result in a feverish rush to secure those precious early bird tickets. For those of you that aren’t aware of what LSTD entails, it is arguably Bristol’s premier festival, featuring a heavily […]

Caleborate Interview: spammer extraordinaire

Caleborate Interview: spammer extraordinaire

When roaming the dark corners of the internet, quality control is hard to exercise. Most legit links yield crap, let alone the spam.   But one day I stumbled across something a little different. This guy on YouTube had been spamming a lot of 90′s hip hop videos, but with an unusually positive reception from […]

Gig Review: New Cowboy Builders @ The Exchange – 24/01/2014

It’s funny what you see on a Friday night in Bristol. Sometimes promoters put together a night of musical variety which looks confusing on paper but then it works like a dream on the night. This night was not one of those nights. The gig equivalent of Frankenstein’s monster pieced together from a number of rescheduled nights […]

Gig Preview: Boy & Bear @ Thekla – 22/02/14

Boy & Bear, an Australian indie-folk foursome hailing from Australia, have a miraculously uplifting vibe that will make you feel like your sat on Bondi beach even on the dreariest of Bristol days. I first heard them on BBC Radio 6 music and ran to the Soundhound app on my phone to get the name […]
