Wayne Thomas of Trampolene

Wayne Thomas of Trampolene

For the first time in weeks, the sun was pouring down over London as I headed to Crouch End to meet Trampolene bass player, Wayne Thomas. Having previously decided to meet at a pub in the area, I had just ordered myself a drink before he walked in, greeting me kindly and not hiding his slight surprise at my efficiency of managing to get there before him. Welsh alternative rock band Trampolene - made up of Jack Jones, Wayne Thomas and Rob Steele - is a band that everybody and their sister claims to know, but yet still remain an unknown and intriguing concept to supporters across the world. Since their formation, they have captivated fans with their wild antics on and off stage, but also their absorbing and genuine…

Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres O2 Kentish Town Forum – Review

Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres O2 Kentish Town Forum – Review

It'll take more than a hedgehog to stop Mr. Doherty... Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres took over the O2 Kentish Town Forum last Sunday for a stand out performance, showing Peter at his best.  With a bandage wrapped around one hand, a indicator of the infected hedgehog wound that Peter had suffered with, and a fedora that remained on his head throughout the show, shadowing his face, he delivered a perfect performance, remaining collected and in control the whole way through. The crowd was a booze filled mass, chanting their love for Peter Doherty and dancing around the room, and as popular as the new album is, it was clear that they were going particularly mad for the old favourites such as, ‘Last Of The English Roses’ and ‘Fuck…

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes End Of Suffering: Review

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes End Of Suffering: Review

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes are back with their highly anticipated third album, ‘End Of Suffering’. Named after the Buddhist term for enlightenment, the album was recorded in just over 6 months and is made up of 12 tracks, with 3 singles already released, ‘Crowbar’, ‘Anxiety,’ and ‘Kitty Sucker’. The album starts with scorched ballad, ‘Why A Butterfly Can’t Love A Spider’.Opening with a strong and regular beat, the song demonstrates Frank Carter’s soulful vocals and a different side to the band, with the track building throughout before reaching a heavy breakdown. But even with this sudden guitar intermission it still remains an effective narrative and a perfect opener to the album.  A couple of weeks ago, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes headlined Jack Saunders Hopscotch gig under the synonym,…

Live Review: Strange Bones + Rascalton win The Lexington

Live Review: Strange Bones + Rascalton win The Lexington

London, 21/02/19. Strange Bones and Rascalton took over The Lexington during their joint headline tour; their astounding and raucous performances ripping straight through the centre of the venue, inciting a riotous audience. First up were Rascalton, whose punk-esque swagger and stylish musicianship lead to a packed out room with audience members pushing their way through to try and make it to the front. Effortless and unruly, Jack Wyles smooth Glaswegian accent could be heard through his lead vocals as he yelled into the microphone, throwing his guitar around and at one point losing his guitar strap (resulting in a crew member running onstage to fix it). Rascalton were met with an onslaught of applause as they thanked the audience at the end of their set, strolling offstage, and disappearing into the night. Half an hour later…

Live Review: This Feeling at The Macbeth

Live Review: This Feeling at The Macbeth

Sophie and The Giants, Blackwaters and Yonaka bought life, music and energy to a Thursday evening at The Macbeth, each performing for This Feeling in aid of the charity Cyber Smile, chosen charity by Yonaka.  Sophie and The Giants kicked off the evening, with lead singer Sophie’s vocals soaring through the packed out crowd. Dainty and elegant, with a singing voice that could silence a football crowd, Sophie’s powerful stage presence and stunning talent was backed by a fantastic band, made up of Toby (guitar), Chris (drums), Bailey (bass). The charisma between bands mates was very clear while watching the set, each member laughing, joking and interacting with each other, all while keeping up the rhythmic and building music, owning the stage and giving the audience a reason to dance as they finished with the closing track on their new EP, ‘Bulldog’.…
