It was a strange, funny day when Retribution Gospel Choir came back to Sheffield. It snowed heavily in the morning (not a problem for the Duluth trio of rockers) and by the time their set ended, the snow was all but gone. There’s some possible witty remark/pun/fanboy musing about their music melting snow, but can’t think of any. Drenge opened the night. Loudly and fast, the way they know how … Continue reading Retribution Gospel Choir @ The Harley, Sheffield
It seems that we’ve taken a turn as of late. Besides the usual music and art shenanigans, several stories about alcohol have been creeping in. Maybe it was because of this or simply because they took pity on us being skint, but we got invited to a Press launch for the new range of Burgers the Harley is offering (via Twisted Burger Company).

They say that necessity is the mother of invention. They also say never start a review with a cliché. I guess sometimes it’s better to go with your gut instinct. Continue reading “Review – X Ray Horse w/ Low Duo, Empty Churches, The Kickliner & Don’t Sleep Dream”

For a less rambling introduction to what this event is about, please do check this link. You have been warned. -Orestes. Y’all know the story: boy meets girl. Boy and girl fall in love. Boy fails to buy expensive presents and forgets a couple of important dates, girl only wants to moan, buy overpriced cupcakes and shoot deer at the park. Boy dumps girl (or … Continue reading What is Speed Hating?
For their first show of 2012, Xrayhorse brought a characteristically strong, local line-up to a merry Saturday night Harley crowd. Continue reading “Review : Cats:For:Peru, Algiers and Strange & Partners @ Harley Live”
It’s a cold evening, I’m pretty worn out from a lacklustre final day of work before the Christmas break, so what better way to enliven my evening that watching Hey Sholay, with support from Mad Colours and The Hot Soles at The Harley?
Accompanied by my *already* inebriated (soon to become heavily inebriated) mates Ancliff and Titch, this review begins honest and professionally enough, but as you will evidently read, soon becomes defied by their insistence to add comment and opinion.
I apologise in advance. Continue reading “Gig review: The Hot Soles, Mad Colours and Hey Sholay @ The Harley”
A night of noise. That’s the basic gist of what it was to be at The Harley on a Monday at the beginning of October. Three bands, different amount of members, slightly similar vein of musical preferences but not quite the same sound (although the affinity was quite evident).

Peace in the Park 2011 was held at the Ponderosa park in Sheffield. The free event included many a local act, with volunteers asking for money for a wide variety of charities. The music was good, the food range was exquisite and the bathroom lines were infinite. A beautiful day filled with great music, here’s a few of the many talents that played that day. Continue reading “One fine day at Peace in the Park 2011…”
So, we had this lil’ gig at The Harley a couple of weeks ago and y’all were real nice and visited us. Sure, due to health and safety regulations, Orestes and his naked dancing cows revue had to be cancelled and the toxicity of the stamp we used at the entry is still being tested, but we had fun. It wouldn’t be fair to self-review … Continue reading Gallery – The Unfortunate Incident, The Hope Explosion and Love at Death Beach
