LIVE: Picture This @ Electric Ballroom, Camden

If there is one band you should be going to see this year, it could be an Irish duo with a sold out UK and Ireland tour who have already established a large fan base even before they “drop” their debut album, Who this? Picture This. If you have never heard of them it could be  because you are not following the latest trends on YouTube or Spotify. Or put another way you are not up with the kids. In a world where everything is easy to reach, simple to find and share, then bands like Picture This don’t need to have the...

Photography: THØSS @ Electric Ballroom

  UK singer/songwriter THØSS has shared his first effort of the year, Work Is A Four Letter Word. The track blends soulful vocals with punctuated bass lines and bluesy guitar chops to create an evocative soundscape that fits perfectly with the personal nature of the lyrics. Speaking about the song, THØSS stated: “Work Is A Four Letter Word came from the realisation that working a menial job provided me with a sense of worth, a liniment of sorts. I was flipping hot dogs and feeling better about my place in the world.“ THØSS was captured live at Electric Ballroom by...

Live: Band Of Skulls @ Electric Ballroom

Southampton-based rock trio Band Of Skulls are back with their Gil Norton-produced fourth studio album By Default. And to celebrate its launch next week, they played a duo of shows in North London; a last minute Lexington stop followed by tonight’s sold-out Electric Ballroom show. The band, comprised of guitarist-vocalist Russell Marsden, bass player and vocalist Emma Richardson and Matt Hayward on drums, who made waves with second and third LPs Sweet Sour and Himalayan, took inspiration from writing in a Southampton church for their fourth outing, a sound brought out in full to the Electric Ballroom. The trio,...

Interview: Band Of Skulls, Church-Inspired Phase 2

Taking a step back from relentless touring, Southampton-based rock trio Band Of Skulls have been squirreled away in Monmouthshire recording the follow-up to their well-received 2014 album Himalayan. With the fruits of their labour – fourth studio album By Default – poised for launch later this month and proceeded with first single Killer, the three-piece comprised of Russell Marsden (guitar, vocals), Emma Richardson (bass, vocals) and Matt Hayward (drums) spoke to RockShot Magazine’s Kalpesh Patel about their process, ideas incubated and developed in a church, and working with acclaimed producer Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies) for the next phase of their...

Live Review: The Libertines @ The Electric Ballroom

You’ve probably worked out by now (or heard!) that Pete Doherty didn’t show up for The Libertines tonight, and the gig never happened. After nearly two hours of waiting the crowd started to get pretty upset and it ended up with cans and bottles being thrown, some hitting us in the pit. One guy then leapt the barrier and hurled the mic stand into the crowd, at which point we were all whisked outside. Shortly after that Carl Barat and Gary left and we were all escorted out the back gate. An entertaining story but a disappointing evening as I...

Live: L7 @ Electric Ballroom.

Camden’s Electric Ballroom was the venue for L7’s triumphant return to London. With shows at Download festival and Glasgow already under their belts (the latter being their only other UK headline gig), the Californian four-piece grunge punk pioneers hit the stage in London to a raucous reception. Having disappeared from the scene in 2001, it’s been a long wait to see Donita Sparks, Suzi Gardner, Jennifer Finch and Dee Plakas back on stage and, indeed, for much of the audience it was their first L7 gig, having been too young to catch them the first time around. The band...

With a two page setlist, the crowd were in for a packed and sweaty show. Imelda Michalczyk. Electric Ballroom. 23rd October 2013....

Kobra Paige leads the band Kobra & The Lotus whose style is often described as NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) which is a little ironic because they are from Canada. Watch those hair extensions fly.          ...
