Review: Tom Morello, 3rd June 2019

Sean Hubbard/ June 8, 2019

The legendary Rage Against The Machine guitarist played a sold out sideshow at Rescue Rooms with his album’s The Atlas Underground band during a night off from his slot as main support for Muse and completely demonstrated why he is so iconic. Beginning his set by playing Battle, it was clear that this was no ordinary gig. His gargantuan 19

The Amazons – Future Dust Album Review

Roisin Hickey/ May 22, 2019

The Amazons’ latest album Future Dust makes obvious the importance of their two years off. Although their debut provided indie rock classics such as ‘Black Magic’ and ‘In my Mind’, it is clear that The Amazons have stepped their game up; their newest album is holistically sexy, gritty and raw – how all indie rock should be. ‘Mother’ is one

Sean Hubbard/ May 18, 2019

Year of the Knife and Chamber absolutely levelled Nottingham’s Rough Trade last night as the opening show of the Ultimate Aggression tour. Support came from UKHC bands Cauldron, Warheads and Intent 2 Kill.

Sean Hubbard/ May 15, 2019

Employed To Serve hit Rough Trade’s stage on Monday in support of their incredible new album Eternal Forward Motion, already hailed as a potential album of the year by many critics, which is a superb accomplishment considering that it’s not even six months into the year. Despite only having a half hour set the band (in their signature jackets) ploughed

Wheatus @ Rescue Rooms

Alana McKenna/ May 2, 2019

Wheatus, seven-piece American rock band most known for their timeless classic ‘Teenage Dirtbag,’ graced the Rescue Rooms stage last night, playing a show that was unique in comparison to anything I had previously seen. They had one of the most relaxed entrances I’ve experienced, setting up much of their own equipment and instruments, and casually walking out onto the stage,

Will ‘Jaws’ upcoming album, “The Ceiling”, propel the trio to lofty heights?

Tristan Phipps/ March 29, 2019

Given that Birmingham band ‘Jaws’ appear to have been around since the dawn of time, it’s remarkable that they are only now approaching the release of album number three. While they have taken their time in releasing new music, the trio have kept their cult-fan base bubbling along nicely with a sprinkling of tour dates here and there. However, as

Abby Clarke/ April 27, 2018

A few hours before the last show of the Mallory Knox headline tour, I joined JUDAS, a four-piece indie rock band fronted by Liverpudlian John Clancy with Todd Blackmore on guitar, Sam Horvath on drums and James Phillips on bass. The group had arrived early in Nottingham so were able to relax before the show and reminisce about their time on

Tristan’s Review of Tom Misch’s Geography

Tristan Phipps/ April 2, 2018

For those of you who are familiar with Tom Misch, he needs no introduction. For those who aren’t, he could easily become your latest obsession. As a dazzlingly talented multi-instrumentalist – more than competent on guitar, piano and violin – it’s easy to forget Misch is only 22 years old. Where his previous projects have showcased his talents as a
