It’s weird thing, this trend of burgers being a delicacy. If you’d told me when I was ten that burgers would be on trend, I’d say you’re pulling my leg.
Not that I’m complaining. There’s more to burgers than sandwiching ground beef between bread, really. (more…)
As a regular gig-goer with the observational skills of a complete creep, I think I am fairly qualified in giving my personal low-down on the interesting breeds you are likely to encounter at your local music venue. Maybe you could print this out and play The Gig bingo next time you go to see that mediocre band that you support purely because they share your postcode. I can ensure a night of intoxication.

Blog: “Retailer’s don’t offer a level playing field” – Why Online Trading Will Be The End Of The Independent Record Store
The concerns for the record store have been rekindled with the collapse of HMV. (more…)
The Road to Live at Leeds 2013 – Maybeshewill, Wild Swim, Sky Larkin, Post War Glamour Girl and Pins
As we mentioned before, Live at Leeds 2013 looks to be quite a treat and although we are still waiting for a complete, final line-up announced (we might have been embargoed- Cuba-style!), here’s a couple of bands we are looking forward to catch live: (more…)
Heeeeeeeeeeey, it’s been a long time since we’ve done one of these. Actually, no, we did one last week. DID YOU READ IT?
Dafuq you mean “no”? We write these for you!
Oh well, may Jeremy Clarkson in a thong haunt your dreams. WELCOME to our lovely EP round up, I’m your very entertaining (and slightly wacky) host, Orestes P. Xistos, climbing the pecking order in this shithole of a website (TM) one brown nose at a time.
In our usual analogy form, we will be comparing each of these EPs to something cool and entertaining. For this week’s edition, I’m comparing each EP to a member of the Fantastic Four. Not the boring old quartet, but the cool ones. Which ones? Read on. (more…)
Ahoy there! Well, it’s now upon us and we’ve compiled a lil’ audiovisual compilation for you. (more…)
Exhibition 20-22 March 2013
Location: Portland Works.
Art space made possible by Carl Witham
Lost Property, secreted away in this historic slice of old Sheffield, was an exhibition of somewhat diverse media cleverly presented by Hallam Students in the old Portland Works. Wandering in the first impression is of a good space with room to absorb the work on offer. Diffused light from the windows added a little mystery to the proceedings, always a plus for me where a “gallery” is concerned. (more…)
Heeeeeeeeeeey, it’s been a long time since we’ve done one of these. I blame Duncan Sheik‘s nifty new musical, a love story set in Edwardian Times. About fucking time somebody wrote about that massively underrepresented era.
Whoa! Sorry, I go on tangents. WELCOME to our lovely EP round up, I’m your very entertaining (and slightly wacky) host, Orestes P. Xistos, climbing the pecking order in this shithole of a website (TM) one brown nose at a time.
In our usual analogy form, we will be comparing each of these EPs to each Female Titan from Greek mythology. Why six female Titans? Because we are trying to atone for what basically constitutes a Patriarchy (i.e. this site’s owners are chauvinistic omnivores). DOWN WITH THIS PHALLOCRACY!
Ahem, sorry, for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself. EPs, right? (more…)
