Palms @ The Lansdowne, 26th Feb

SHOW NOTES “Palms are one of those bands that almost can’t help themselves. It’s been literally years since I saw them last and they’ve both grown musically and kept every last drop of energy and vim that made me love them the first time round. The new sits comfortably alongside the old, and the whole […]

Megafauna @ The Lansdowne, 26th Feb

SHOW NOTES “Megafauna may be made up of people from many (excellent) bands, but they bring a set of pure C86 with them that is all their own. Jangles and everyday themes bound around with glee, from the leaves on the trees to the taste of post-dental surgery lips. More than enough charm to disarm […]

Connor Brooker – Miss You

Connor Brooker has always been both prolific and prodigiously talented and it’s a pleasure to see new solo material again, especially when it’s this glorious and adorable. Brooker’s feelings run deep and ‘Miss You’ is similarly all heart, pounding and thumping and churning in those ways that make life both delicious and painful all at […]

The Kids @ Frankie’s, 21st Feb

SHOW NOTES “The Kids go OFF tonight, partially because it’s drummer Jagger’s birthday, but mostly because that’s their default speed, somewhere between ‘hilarious’ and ‘how does get fucked sound?’ Once you accept that they hate you and everything you stand for, you’ll get along just fine. Hell yes please and thank you.” LEARN MORE Facebook […]

Boysclub @ Frankie’s, 21st Feb

SHOW NOTES “Boysclub are basically made of rocket fuel and starlight, the sort of thing to make you wish you heard more bands like this, and then be grateful that this one sounds like no other. Just raw blistering power, note to note, song to song.” LEARN MORE Facebook | Instagram | Twitter Subscribe to […]

Space Boys @ Frankie’s, 21st Feb

SHOW NOTES “Space Boys have taken their sludge rock to the next level, where your brain just gives up and succumbs to a devilish combination of weight and tune. A monstrous set, in all the right ways.” LEARN MORE Facebook | Instagram | Twitter Subscribe to The Underground Stage Playlist Thirty freshly-released goodies from the […]

2Mums @ Frankie’s, 21st Feb

SHOW NOTES “Depriving us of most eye contact, 2Mums make sure you’re focussed on two things – the lizard-brain reflex of watching a singer with no face, and the ferocity of the soundtrack. The only response is to give up on the brain altogether. Animal rules, animal response.” LEARN MORE Instagram Subscribe to The Underground […]

UTI @ Frankie’s, 21st Feb

SHOW NOTES “UTI pull no punches, respect no boundaries, and generally bust off the stage like a monkey from a box. Smooth though – like it’s on rails. As loud as rolling thunder, coming in from the air like artillery.” LEARN MORE Facebook | Instagram Subscribe to The Underground Stage Playlist Thirty freshly-released goodies from […]

I Hate People @ Frankie’s, 21st Feb

SHOW NOTES “It’s a bit comforting, somehow, to realise that I Hate People do in fact hate many, many people. Most of whom, to be fair, are politicians or racists or both. For their sins, they receive a tongue-lashing in the chord of NOISE, and so do we all.” LEARN MORE Facebook | Instagram Subscribe […]
