New Music – A Perfect Circle ‘Doomed’

Whilst it may feel like it’s been 10,000 days since we heard anything new from Maynard James Keenan, those who have been waiting patiently (or not so patiently as the case may be) have been given a dose of what they crave.

Featured Artist: The Jaw

A long time ago in an email inbox not that far away… we received an enticing and inventive invite to join The Jaw on their guerilla gig tour of London to promote the release of their upcoming EP. Needless to say the offer was one we couldn’t possibly turn down and so we turned up…

Live – Chali 2NA & Krafty Kuts @ Canvas 15/11/17

We arrived early and settled into the comfy laid back atmosphere of the beautiful Canvas bar.

Boomtown Review 2016

  Boomtown well and truly blew our minds and then sent the pieces spinning off into space. We’ve had the time necessary to collect them all and now we’re busy gluing back together those shattered shards into something that vaguely resembles a functioning human. The real world is a sharp shock after you’ve been immersed so heavily…
