Sauce // Magick Trick

Fresh Manchester band Sauce  and their new cheeky little track Magick Trick serves up a devilishly clever melding. I’ll resist the temptation to suggest it’s as good as the day I discovered the mix of hot chilli and barbeque. Magick Trick gives me a feel for the heyday of 60’s and 70’s blues rock (think […]

Album Review: Massive Wagons, Full Nelson

The North-West is often mistaken for being synonymous with Manchester and that, unfortunately is not the case. Many cities and towns have seen a plethora of mediocre artists come and go in the area and it often feels like Blackburn, Chester and the likes will never create a real artist again.

Single Review: Able’s Army, Private Eye

The first time I saw Able’s Army back in 2016, I described them as “Britpop Beatles”. Since then they have gone to prove me wrong by being a great indie-rock band with the releases of Crawl and Astronaut. This month though, the Huddersfield based band released their new single Private Eye which is 100% on the money, “Britpop Beatles” […]

The Maitlands // Kisses For The Masses

A new song that has snuck under the covers into my consciousness comes from Manchester based The Maitlands. The June released track Kisses For The Masses has confidence in spade; it’s not a long track but nevertheless the riffs and the tune appear to meander gently along before the band suddenly reveal its dark killer […]

Purple Thread // Life’s A Drag

There’s no shortage of pomp and flash when Leeds band Purple Thread are around. This July saw the release of their latest track Life’s A Drag. Like its immediate predecessor, Glitter, the song has swagger, funk, punk and bounce in equal measure; it’s impossible to stay down when Purple Thread are in the room. In […]

Single Review: Johnny Kills – Who’s Counting

Surf-glam..what does that mean I found myself asking when I read that this was the genre of music Johnny Kills best describe themselves as. Having admittedly never heard of the band until they dropped into our inbox, I was intrigued to find out that it is a genre of music I am a huge fan of! Who’s […]
