Sweet Crisis EP review

Sweet Crisis are a band that maybe have skipped under your radar, I must admit, I knew next to nothing about them until I went to see Gun playing in Edinburgh and caught their opening set supporting them. Having seen them live, I’m convinced you should find out about them yourself. Continue reading “Sweet Crisis EP review”

The Temperance Movement live in Glasgow

The Temperance Movement are insanely good on record, and even better on stage. I probably wasn’t prepared for how good they are live though. They are incredible.

The Greatest Albums You Never Heard: Supersuckers – The Evil Powers Of Rock ‘n’ Roll

I don’t think it’s been a stellar year for music this year, I found myself listening to more and more podcasts and classic, older records than anything else. I wouldn’t say the music scene is stagnant, though. The album does seem to have less importance than it did. Maybe I’m just getting old…
