LIve: Afghan Whigs @ Koko.

After a recording break of some 16 years, the Ohioan men of Afghan Whigs returned with their 7th studio album Do to the Beast in 2014, quickly followed by the 21st anniversary remastered reissue of their major-label debut, Gentlemen. Being one of few non-Pacific North-western acts signed to Seattle-based indie label Sub Pop in the late 1980’s, Afghan Whigs became synonymous with Grunge after touring with pioneers Mudhoney but they always brought a unique blend of influences to their sound with their frontman often sporting a crisp suit on stage to counter the plaid shirt and jeans look of that counter culture movement.

Live: Ellie Goulding & Friends @ Streets Of London.

English singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ellie Goulding hosted a unique evening of acoustic music at West London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire, sharing the stage with a host of acts from rockers Band Of Skulls to the delicate-voiced Birdy in aid of the homeless awareness charity Streets Of London. Never one to shy away from putting her talent forward for philanthropic causes, Goulding has been a staple at Jo Wiley’s similarly-themed and aptly-named Little Noise Sessions in years past, playing quietened-down and acoustic versions of big hits in smaller environs whilst raising awareness as well as money for Mencap. Goulding also...

Live: Augustines @ Roundhouse

Brooklyn-based indie rockers Augustines, formally We Are Augustines, played their final show of a short European tour at Camden’s Roundhouse in support of their eponymous second studio album. Starting the show with tracks from their debut Rise Ye Sunken Ships, the Billy McCarthy-led trio opened with Headlong Into The Abyss before launching into fan-favourite Chapel Song which featured in Curt Morgan’s 2011 hit snowboarding film The Art of Flight. Although the roots of this band come from the ashes of Billy McCarthy and Eric Sanderson’s former band Pela (and a battle to get out their debut record the way it...

Live: Half Moon Run @ Roundhouse
Published On: March 26, 2016
Playing their biggest headline show to date, Montréal-based indie rockers Half Moon Run returned to Camden, albeit the Chalk Farm end, just a few months after their explosive Koko show following the release of their second studio album Sun Leads Me On. Yes, I went along to their Koko show (read all about that one here) and immediately went out Continue Reading
