CAN – The Lost Tapes

                  It is a generally accepted article of rock ‘n’ roll faith that The Velvet Underground were, both musically and in terms of attitude, the single most influential group in history. The shades, the heroin chic, the walls of feedback married to pure pop melody, the S&M […]

Sunn O))) Live At Coalition

So far, it’s not been a bad year at all for those in Brighton wanting to hear something a bit heavier. Back in March, Earth – a major influence on the current band in question – brought their countrified brand of drone to the city, while last month saw grunge legends The Melvins descending.

Alternative Escape: Genrebomb and The Boileroom Showcase

The Great Escape Festival returns to Brighton once again this year from 10– 12th May, with a wealth of events and live music going on around the town. However if, like me, you don’t have the hard cash necessary to actually take part in these events you do still have options, namely in the form […]
