Michale Graves Gig Review

We caught up with Michale Graves and his band during their 2018 UK tour after getting tickets for a last minute date added on at the recently saved Fleece in Bristol. The band had been on tour for six months and this show would mark the end of their UK tour. Michale Graves fronted The…

Tongue Fu Review For You

Whilst other poets and performers might covet trophies, accolades or publication my biggest “prose goes pro” dream would one day to be invited to share the stage with the Tongue Fu team. Combining the soul of jazz with the power of practised poetry Chris Redmond has crafted an evening that moves your feet, heart and…

Lack Of Afro at 1812 Bournemouth Review

1812 is a venue that is definitely not being used to the best of its potential, we’re hoping that’s going to change. This was our first taste of it’s sleak style, kicking cocktail menu and awesome atmosphere, we’ll definitely be going back for a second helping soon. We arrived early to get settled and check out…

Knowledge Is Power – Route2Roots & Akala Review

There wasn’t much too soothing about these surroundings. Perhaps more…

Gig Review: Satellites

Yack disclaimer: all music is subjective. Upon inspection we do however agree with our intrepid reporter that this particular example firmly falls into the camp of aural rape. Draw your own conclusions. This review was written over three different gigs…… I couldn’t stand to stay till the end of their set each time Another fucking…
