(((O))) LIVE

King Witch – Bannerman’s Bar, Edinburgh

All the bands were great, but the night belongs to King Witch. The band approach the live experience like true professionals, from their backdrop, to the way they kick off proceedings.

Green Man Festival 2018

The fact that it sold out months in advance . . . reflects the dedication shown by loyal customers who return to Green Man year-on-year, with familiar faces popping up and the taking place of many re-united hugs. This is a family affair; everybody knows everybody else, but first-timers will also undoubtedly be welcomed with open arms and warmth.


Here’s the lowdown on Kozfest 2018, including headline appearances by Mugstar, The Cosmic Dead and Nodens Ictus.

UK Tech Fest 2018 – Sunday

Even without Protest The Hero topping it, Sunday was still a stupidly impressive lineup, and after the quality sets on show on Saturday, the festival looked set to end on a massive high. . .

UK Tech Fest 2018 – Saturday

Saturday was all set to bring some well-hyped rising stars, returning favourites, a stacked after-party, and a left-field headliner for the Waghorn Guitars Stage. . .

UK Tech Fest 2018 – Friday

It’s that time of year again, when the lovers of technical guitars and poly-rhythms descend on a cowshed in Newark for a weekend of musical virtuosity and wizardry. And nobody’s more excited than the weather, with literal tornadoes storming the campsite on the Thursday. . .

Magpie Salute – The Oslo, London

Magpie Salute celebrate their High Water I album release with an intimate acoustic show at London’s Oslo.

Monolord • Conan – Rebellion, Manchester

Facemeltingly heavy, the sort of gig that takes a bit of time to recover from. It’s a real pleasure to watch two bands enjoying themselves and doing what they really love. Highly recommend to be experienced in person. Hearing protection recommended.

Supersonic Festival 2018

Of the many great things filling this weekend few can be as illustrative of Supersonic’s approach and its audience than the closing headline acts. An English folk singer in her 80’s and an American black metal band might appear at the furthest poles from one another, but that a considerable proportion of us aren’t sure which we’ll choose to watch, and that the deep currents that connect them seem natural and obvious, says much for the spirit of the festival.

Ottawa Psych Fest 2018

The festival ended well into the wee hours, and it ended as it began, with an air of positivity and mind-blowing creativity. The friendships and mutual respect between the bands really came through and welcomed the fans in.

Urban Voodoo Machine – Zanzibar, Liverpool

Each member of the band bring some amazing skills with them which allows them to fully get into the spirit of the show and play their part accordingly.
