Music

After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.

GIG REVIEW: Bowling For Soup at O2 Academy Newcastle

There are literally no words to describe how amazing Bowling for Soup were on Saturday night. The guys played to a sold out O2 Academy Newcastle crowd and certainly did not let their older age be a problem. Despite the really early stage time of just 8pm, the show was in honour of their 15th […]

REVIEW: Marmozets at Riverside Newcastle

From busted noses and wild mosh pits, to Yorkshire chanting and even the band buying a fan a pint, it all happened last night at Marmozets’ Riverside gig. Playing to a sold out crowd, the band did not hold back their energy during their adrenaline filled performance. Liverpool band Queen Zee and the Sasstones opened […]

The wait is finally over. After waiting over two years for a new album, the day has finally arrived.

Album review: Fieldy – Bassically

Album review: Fieldy – Bassically

It is primarily an experiment of emotion through a bass guitar, seamlessly blending several genres that interest the artist. Due to this blend, […]
