Tramlines 2009. The first one. The one where the local music bug bit me. Probably because I stepped on it with all my splendorous overweightness (!). I’d just seen La Folie at the Frog & Parrot and dragged myself uphill, back to Endcliffe Village. Statistics about fungus and micas had to be done. I was still thinking about the previous night, when I managed to squeeze into DQ and … Continue reading 30 days, 30 bands – #16 Bromheads
Waddle, waddle, waddle, it’s Springtime for Hitler and Germany…no, wait, that’s from The Producers, the best pisstake musical ever. After Spamalot. I think. Hey, that’s no ordinary rabbit.
Right-o, no more Percol Americano for me. It’s off to Tamper Coffee to write this excuse for a preview. Continue reading “Kvetching in Sheffield – #1”
Hullo hullo, it’s your editor-in-training, Orestes P. Xistos and I’ll be doing this week’s EP round-up. In honour of how good my axons and dendrites are doing, I’ll be assigning a Star Trek equivalent to each of these bands, whether you like it or not (hey, that’s a Dr. Who reference!). Continue reading “EP Round Up: Late Night Fiction, Bromheads, Cuushe, Likes Lions”
The wait is over…no, scratch that, it still on. Bromheads have been quiet for a while, plotting, planning and installing frickin’ lasers in their secret base in Planet Crystal Ship while preparing a new EP. As a “settle down, you needy fans”, a free live EP has been released, called Live at the Troxy. Interesting choice of tracks. Once they dropped the “Jackets” bit from their older sound self, … Continue reading Bromheads – Live at the Troxy
First time we heard about Bromheads was due to one of our writer’s watching their slightly chaotic show in DQ during Tramlines 2009. Since said writer (name rhymes with Spam) is a big fan of the band, we managed to get a quick interview with Tim (guitar, voice) and Dan (drums), who were kind enough to take all the questions we sent their way.
We’ve been on a folk roll lately on the site and we’d like to plug a couple of things we’ve found whilst roaming the net for price comparisons. -The lovely people at For Folks Sake have created a list of their “Best of 2010”, with many good artists, including the dreamy pop peddled by Just Handshakes (We’re British).

A veritable all mix this week, as we get an alt-legend strutting their stuff, a raucous band known for their intense live shows, a Liverpudlian gang who probably sleep in a beer freezer, a garage duo with a smashing garage sound and a group dabbling in a suave type of indie.
Hopefully, these songs will cheer you if the freezing weather is doing your mood in! As always, all links to the bands are at the end of the post.
The night started with the Heebie Jeebies, a trio with a very energetic show. After handing out freen cans (yay!) of Carlsberg (oops!), they went into their set and played to all their skills and tried to get everyone to join in their fun. Del (bass) played and worked over the frets, Thomas worked the skins in any rhythm he damned pleased and Owen strummed, danced and sang. Problem is, you couldn’t really listen to their stuff as the audio was a little dodgy. They sure did their best on stage for their fans.
Bromheads – Friends
The little ditty that could. A bittersweet song about the ups and downs of friendships and maybe that the best course of action is just to shrug your shoulders and soldier on. Getting kicked out TWICE from a building might be the side-effects of this earworm of a song. Love the drumming and “you will like it after you’ve heard it twenty times” (TM Tim from Bromheads) .
