Holloh – Young Lord EP

Tell me what does heartbreak sound like. Drowning here, and yet thirsting for more.  Lips sealed, and hands washed clean. Nothing to hide. A whisper, the sharp gasp for breath and yet – nothing, not a sound. Tell me what does total self-destruction sound like, painting the town black, movements...

Marcel Fengler (Ostgut Ton / Berghain)

I have always been fascinated, obsessed almost dependent on german techno –  especially the kind that almost visualizes the grittiness of urban landscape and how man reacts, adapts, interacts with his surroundings. This urban landscape, man-made, concrete and steel crevices in between buildings and walls pulsating with the sights, sounds, smells and...

Vuvuvultures

The nouveau goth movement was already in full swing before I’ve even realised the full extent of it. As I sit here going through Savages‘ facebook photo album, making plans for the show with O Children and The Voyeurist tomorrow and listening to Vuvuvultures, I cannot help but feel a...

Paris XY

Take the dark side of Trentemoller, Gui Borrato and Apparat and add the smoky, sultry voice of Alice Smith doing it in the vein of The Knife and you get Paris XY. I first met James Orvis, the other half of Paris XY, when I was dj-ing at Release Yourself a few months back. He...

NO CEREMONY/// – HURTLOVE

I haven’t been myself lately at all. The past few weeks and months have been a blur, everything moving with such great speeds that the only thing constant is the residue of space they leave behind – a strange, fulfilling emptiness. I have been waking up every morning at precisely 7:43am “We live in an...

Everything Unexpected Happened at Live At Leeds 2013

Everything Unexpected Happened at Live At Leeds 2013

There is a reason for the title of this post. Everything unexpected DID happen at Live At Leeds 2013. Let me break it down for you: I couldn’t go to work on Friday. Someone in the office gave me a nasty bastard chest and sinus infection. By the time Saturday rolled in, I was still...

Brilliant Colors, Wharf Chambers, 8th April 2013, Leeds

Typing this as I wolf down the microwaved leftover spag bol I made last night. Who’d have thought that the band I wrote about 3 years ago would play a gig in Leeds tonight??? I must say it is quite unfortunate that Margaret Thatcher happened to pass away on the night Brilliant Colors were playing. [Brilliant...



Exclusive Preview: Phlegm @ Canal Mills, Leeds

Exclusive Preview: Phlegm @ Canal Mills, Leeds

So we got invited to the exclusive preview of world renowned muralist Phlegm‘s new murals that have just been completed at Canal Mills. What better person to review this than the amazing Joy G, aka Morbid (also going  by the moniker Cbloxx.) As the art director for Leeds’ independent film festival No/Gloss, an established commissioned graffiti artist herself...



Maya Jane Coles

Maya Jane Coles

Just as I thought it was going to be a quiet Easter weekend, we got this through the inbox: Maya Jane Coles. In Leeds. With Joy Orbison. Fuck. Yeah I know she’s played in Leeds many times but I have never got the opportunity to go see her. Finally, the time has come. For those of...



Tombed Visions Records

Tombed Visions Records

I haven’t wrote in awhile and there’s a reason for that. The countless stream of useless, non-personalised emails from PR agencies who should know better than to send me badly written presspacks about artists that are totally not relevant to this blog, had me so underwhelmed and uninspired that I have turned my attention to...
