Feature: Bands To Watch: Les Savy Fav

September 9, 2010

Another Bands To Watch feature for There Goes The Fear, lovely stuff 🙂

As I sat there the other day scrolling through my iTunes and generally not knowing who to listen to I cropped up on an old favourite of mine, Les Savy Fav. After listening through their third album ‘Go Forth’, I figured it was time to see what they’ve been up to lately and on the brink of releasing a new album things can again only look good for this band.

Interview: Charles Ross

September 7, 2010

I interviewed the man responsible for the One Man Lord Of The Rings show for The Linc.

You’d have thought it was impossible, condensing the entire Lord Of The Rings trilogy into just one hour. This isn’t just putting the DVD on fast-forward and trying to figure out what on Earth is going on, but one man has taken it upon himself to re-enact the whole epic by himself.

Charles Ross is a self-proclaimed geek and has already toured his One Man Star Wars show – now his One Man Lord Of The Rings performance will be visiting Lincoln’s Theatre Royal on September 27th.

Live Review: 2000 Trees Festival

September 6, 2010

Here’s an in-depth review of this year’s 2000 Trees Festival with a photo gallery too! Written for The Linc.

Not just a music festival, 2000 Trees Festival was a weekend of relaxation and entertainment. Cheltenham’s Upcote Farm has hosted over 2000 music fans each year since 2007 and this year over 50 bands played across three stages.

Although Friday brought a downpour which left revellers looking like drowned rats in wellies, it didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits. Emotional instrumentalists Maybeshewill opened the main stage and woke the crowd as they thrashed their way through a blowaway set, including “Not For Want Of Trying”. They just couldn’t stop bouncing.

Review: Violent Soho – Violent Soho

September 3, 2010

Here’s my review of the Aussie alternative rockers Violent Soho’s debut eponymous album for OneMetal.

Hailing from Brisbane, Australia this alternative rock four-piece are ready to show the world why Aussies still produce some of the hottest prospects on the music scene. Violent Soho‘s debut self-titled album is a ten track flurry of punk rhythms coupled with grungey vocals and an attitude that Harry Enfield’s comic embodiment of adolescent snottiness Kevin The Teenager would be envious of.
