The Afghan Whigs & Ed Harcourt @ KOKO, 30/05/17

                      Taking place as it does a few days after the Manchester attack (not to mention a few days before the Borough market horrors, but we don’t know that yet), the Afghan Whigs London gig does come with a certain trepidation. Happily though, the crowd

ALESTORM Release brand new video for ‘MEXICO’!

Press Release: A pirate’s life is simple; they drink, steal and kill. But lead by the one & only heavy metal pirates, ALESTORM will be also killing it with their new and 5th studio album ‘No Grave But The Sea‘, which is set to be released on May 26th on Napalm Records! With their just

Mayhem at Electric Ballroom (29/03/17)

I love the Electric Ballroom. It’s a cavernous space, the acoustics are good, it’s close to the Camden tube and- crucially- the bars are easily accessible. It was the ideal venue for Wednesday evening’s entertainment. Mayhem (these days going by the name True Mayhem) played their era- defining classic De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas and we were there to

Rolling Stones – Blue & Lonesome

          Ah, the blues covers album. One of the most irritating affectations in the history of the record industry, it’s a sure- fire way for any given rock dinosaur to obtain some authenticity by going back to the roots (oh, hello Eric Clapton!). It’s not as cynical a move as  hooking up

The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black

Film Review: Logan

There was never any compelling reason for Logan to be a good movie. Sure, a few of the X- Men films are very good and Marvel properties have been striking at new directions lately, what with Deadpool and Guardians of the Galaxy and so on, but have you actually SEEN that first Wolverine movie? Jesus fuck.

Laird Barron – Swift to Chase

The last couple of books by Laird Barron have been expanding his range beyond cosmic horror. There was the novella Man With No Name, a gore- encrusted Yakuza story which blended Miike’s and Kitano’s sensibilities with splashes of unnerving weirdness (this publication was paired with Blood and Sawdust, a brief but hugely enjoyable mad scientist

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

In which the reliably kiddie- friendly Star Wars universe reaches the logical conclusion of all that “heroism in battle” narratives, resulting in arguably the most downbeat chapter in its’ film history. That doesn’t mean that Rogue One is better than Empire… (let’s not kid ourselves here), but- even at its’ darkest- the original trilogy was always a
