Review: End of the Road Festival

11 Sep 2018

I have never been more enamoured with a festival like I have with End Of The Road. The first reason is because, normally, I fucking hate silent discos. End Of The Road’s silent disco is the silent disco in which all must be measured against. You’re enclosed by a leafy, visually beautiful setting, the DJ’s… Read more »

Watch: Meggie Brown releases video for 10/6 ahead of show at Birthdays, London

07 Sep 2018

Meggie Brown’s new tune is a stunner. Spawned from the annals of a windowless North London living/rehearsal space, it is an ode to the surreal places waning mental health can take you – and through Brown’s direct address to the listener, almost an ode of encouragement, a reminder that everyone is more or less in… Read more »

Review: Slaves – Acts of Fear and Love

On the release of their debut album- ‘Are You Satisfied?’ – Slaves were confronted with a strange degree of attention for a punk duo from Kent.

Portsmouth’s Dials Festival announce final wave of acts including Yassassin and Krush Puppies

23 Aug 2018

Portsmouth and more specifically Southsea, has always had it’s own scene. Gig goers would and will continuously fill its large and small venues but always with an ear to the ground for what’s rising. A micro Brighton of sorts, the city can be praised for always thinking forwards when it comes to alternative music. Dials… Read more »
