30 days, 30 bands – #8 RepoMen

  “The life of a Repo Man is always intense.” It was “candy night, y’all” at The Grapes. Well, it wasn’t that name. It was a gig night that the people of Pisco Sour Hour had curated. They always put a good gig in that joint and there was always some kind of decoration theme going for the night. Sugar Rush! I think that was the name. That … Continue reading 30 days, 30 bands – #8 RepoMen

30 days, 30 bands – #4 The Hot Soles

  Razzle Dazzle! Take The Blues Brothers vibrant stage demeanour, add the soulful vocals of a guy who is a massive Aretha Franklin / Queen fan, yank a drummer with a heart of gold and perfect beat and let them loose on the lonesome streets of Sheffield (and Rotherham, the new Berlin.) Whatchoo got? The Hot Soles. Sole Brother A. Sole Brother B. Kieran (vocals, guitar) and Richard (drums) blew … Continue reading 30 days, 30 bands – #4 The Hot Soles

30 Bands, 30 Days – #2 Firesuite

“So, why ‘beat combo’?”  “Chris thought it was a funny way to describe ourselves. Maybe the joke got lost somewhere…” Of all the adjectives I could throw to Firesuite (and I’ve thrown quite a few praising them…), I never quite understood the “beat combo” thing, but I assumed it was an oblique joke, a Family Guy-grade cutaway joke that might or might not be self-deprecating. But that’s where … Continue reading 30 Bands, 30 Days – #2 Firesuite

30 Bands, 30 Days – #1 Cats:For:Peru

Well, it’s been seven years of writing, promoting and ranting about bands we enjoy at this Shithole of a Website (TM) and to celebrate, this time around I thought I could talk about 30 Sheffield bands that struck a chord. Why Sheffield? Because it’s where I finally decided to go solo with this writing stuff. I used to write before, but not too consistently, and … Continue reading 30 Bands, 30 Days – #1 Cats:For:Peru

Stream: Tom Baxendale – All my nightmares

  After an extensive tour of duty with The Payroll Union and a blitzkrieg with The Rainy Day Club, Tom Baxendale decides to duke it out by himself, with a new album. In the city a short time ago, out September on Backwater Collective, finds Baxendale exploring human conflict, both in its substantial and emotional forms. Harking to the classic organ heavy sounds of 60s pop, ‘All my nightmares’ offers an honest lamentation about loss and … Continue reading Stream: Tom Baxendale – All my nightmares

Stream: Loam – A Room

  The dark echoes of disembodied voices and droning post punk arrangements seep through the ruins of old industrial estates. It’s the darkest point at night and although it should be unnerving, there’s a strange emotion seeping through. The rhythmic waves soothe as they cyclically make their way through the rarefied atmosphere. Wet silt mixed with a loamy sediment of a river that once was. … Continue reading Stream: Loam – A Room

Stream : Thee Mightees – Brutal

Turn the right jennel in Sheffield and you can find a good band doing anything. Anything. On the top of my mind, that’s how I ran into Nai Harvest and Best Friends. And after several corners were walked, kicked and tripped upon, I now see Thee Mightees, taking a dip into the [allegedly] clean River Don, waiting paitently for that wave. ‘Brutal’, from their debut … Continue reading Stream : Thee Mightees – Brutal
