E.P Review: Kilkovec – ‘Plunge’

Here at YACK! we have been following Kilkovec since they released their debut E.P Know Your Place and it’s genuinely incredible how these guys have progressed, creating a polished and professional sound along the way. Kilkovec‘s latest release ‘Plunge’  is testament to the hard work the band have put in on the local circuits honing their…

Featured Artist: Easydread

Easydread are a 7 piece Reggae band initially hailing from Luton. The band hit the road pretty fucking hard in 2016, sharing the stage with some of the best Reggae and Ska acts around, week after week, yet still found time to record their EP Fyah and we at Yack! were able to weasel our way in to getting ourselves an exclusive early listen before it drops on January 21st.

Boomtown Diaries: Chapter 8

I pry my crusted over eyelids open to see that my face is half submerged into a lake of beer presumably spilled the night before. A half smoked cigarette butt floats past as I slowly lift my head out of the muck.

Knowledge Is Power – Route2Roots & Akala Review

Don’t you dare tell us that hip hop is dead, because we just saw it live and kicking, shaking its booty and strutting its stuff all over this stage in Southampton. Maybe the mainstream is a little rotten, but if you want to see the resurrection then break out a shovel and get digging underground.

A Night Of Full Moon Musical Madness

It’s been a good couple of weeks for music in the local area, but Saturday 15th of October was something even more than that. The full moon rose and Bournemouth laid out its pearls for us, here’s the path we chose and we definitely don’t regret it. First on the itinerary was a trip to Chaplins for…

Jeykll & Hyde/Nerve Review

Sat centre stage Ellie Jekyll pours herself another drink as the lighting turns scarlet red, confiding in new neighbour Abigail Hyde we learn that she has just lost a child in the operating theatre. It might not be the Jekyll & Hyde we know but it wrestles with the same monsters, life, death, duality and…

Arts By The Sea Opening Weekend

Walking through Bournemouth gardens during the Arts By The Sea festival’s opening weekend it’s easy to feel a part of something beautiful. During the day caped creatives peddle something outside of the everyday experience. The festival brings together talent from all disciplines and spray paints it onto Bournemouth town. It would be easy to get lost…

Roundabout Theatre ‘Growth’ Review

The Paines Plough theatre company have brought the  Roundabout theatre to Poole Park. Priding themselves on curating only the finest in new talent and writing it was an opportunity we could ill afford to miss. Arriving at Poole Park at dusk the pop up theatre makes its home next to the water, lit up against…

Trespass #2 Review

So here I am the god damned illustrator writing a review, why you ask? Well that’s because my reviewer hasn’t turned up. Guess I’d better write this one seeing as an article with pictures and no text isn’t very helpful to anyone. Screw em’ I’m going to see Conflict and I’ll try my best to…
