Diamanda Galás @ Barbican Centre (19/06/2017)

Diamanda Galás’ appearance at the Barbican in the midst of an oppressive London heatwave is intimate and terrifying- and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The first thing to notice is the sheer variety of the audience- a mix of goth queens, metalheads, people with dresses and glittered cheekbones (regardless of gender) and the


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

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


Max & Igor Cavalera @ O2 Forum (30/11/16)

                      It took two hours for me to reach Kentish Town, due to massive delays in the London Underground, so it’s not like I was in a massive hurry to mosh or anything. I did expect the Cavalera brothers to gather quite a crowd- even
