Following his UK festival-exclusive run at Slam Dunk, Frank Iero and The Patience returned to the UK last month, hitting up Brighton’s Concorde 2 just three days after unleashing the emblematically named new EP Keep the Coffins Coming. Take it from someone who knows, the UK has had a lot of love for Frank Iero for many years. But take a look at his album artwork and the amount of UK runs his done in the past three years and[…]

Jaret Reddick, Heartache and Hilarity Tour – Concorde 2, Brighton – 15/09/2017 – LIVE REVIEW

In 1994 Jaret Reddick formed Bowling For Soup with his best friends and for over two decades the band have been a pillar of the pop-punk world dominating charts, sound-tracking cartoons and collecting a million memories. Those memories tell a fucking hilarious story decorated with a spattering of shit storms and this month Reddick flew into the UK to tell us the whole thing. Support came from The Lounge Kittens who brought their own brand of hilarity to the Brighton[…]

Slam Dunk – The Forum, Hatfield – 29/05/2017 – LIVE REVIEW

Nowadays it’s sadly rare to see the words “SOLD OUT” plastered across the poster of a UK Rock Music Festival. But take a glance at the Slam Dunk Festival 2017 website and you’ll notice – the whole darn thing was packed out.

Last year I came to what is still your shining accomplishment, 2000 Trees Festival, to lend a hand during set up week and blog a bit.

Paramore – Colston Hall, Bristol – 21/06/2017 – LIVE REVIEW

Paramore. Are. Back. My word they were missed. For too long now fans nationwide have debated what venues would house the inevitably ground-breaking return of Paramore to UK shores. But, as ever, the Nashville now-trio took everybody by surprise. And so it was that we got to see Paramore in Bristol’s Colston Hall. My word that’s a small venue to see a Grammy winning band in. All of the publicity for new album, After Laughter, tells us that it’s been[…]
