Live: Cabbage & Blossoms @ The Roundhouse

I like the Roundhouse. If you can accept the compromised sight lines and sound, there’s something kind of cool about watching a band in an engine shed. It’s run by a charitable trust, which means it’s looked after; your feet don’t stick to the floor. Tonight, the giant dome is hosting the NME Awards Tour 2017, sponsored by VO5 – a fact that single-handedly makes it sound the least rock ‘n’ roll thing to exist since Tony Blackburn. Gracing the tour are a triumvirate of artists from the North West: Rory Wynne, Cabbage and Blossoms. I’m primarily here for...

Live: The Specials @ The Roundhouse

The Roundhouse is heaving with those ready to skank. It’s the first of three nights that The Specials are playing at London’s venerable circular venue, as part of the band’s ongoing reunion tour. The surprising opener is the cool chill of Ghost Town, their number one hit single from 1981. With a set comprised of familiar songs, perhaps the best way to keep people guessing is to introduce one of the most prized possessions upfront, before everyone has even got their drinks from the bar? Early on in the set, we are treated to Friday Night/Saturday Morning, Stereotype and...

Jumping straight in at the deep end with their new single it warmed the crowd up ready for songs such as Whole Truth and Back In The Day where a wave of crowd surfers spilled over the front barrier. The evening was filled with getting everyone involved, sharing the chorus of Yeah Man the audience sang their...

Photography: The Joy Formidable @ The Roundhouse

One of my favourite and most challenging bands to photograph. I love their sound and trying to keep up with lead singer and guitarist Ritzy Bryan is a bit like trying to hit a moving target. The band musically are stuck somewhere between stadium rock and good old indie rock and roll. I think the venue size does make a difference to their performance and whilst they are energetic and polished the Roundhouse is not the best place for them to show off. The Joy Formidable have always been into their fans and great them like old friends and...
