Live Reviews


Pinkunoizu @ The Lexington, London 28/11/11

Seeing Pinkunoizu was like being in a bizarre dream – the same, strange musical phrases kept repeating, while the crowd looked on, transfixed like statues.

Other Lives @ St. Giles-In-The-Fields Church, London 21/11/11

Ambient drones gently oozed out of the speakers, reverberating around the cavernous stone structure. If heaven exists, I hope its waiting room is like this.

Neon Indian @ Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, Brighton 15/11/11

Track by track Neon Indian brought their own blend of saturated synths and punchy beats, drowning the venue’s attendance in a tidal wave of infectious hooks

Jukebox The Ghost @ Camden Barfly, London 3/11/11

Disciples of the Church of Jukebox the Ghost will be itching to go to the next service, and there may well be a few new recruits next time too

Patrick Wolf @ The Old Firestation, Bournemouth 01/11/2011

A man with this much talent and stage craft shouldn’t really be playing to just over 100 people on a Tuesday night

Dananananaykroyd @ KCLSU, London 04/11/11

It’s quite the spectacle watching an entire room of strangers simultaneously hugging to the music of Dananananaykroyd

Tribes @ Electric Ballroom, London 28/10/11

Overall they played with gusto and fervour but couldn’t live up to the one missing ingredient: original-sounding, well-written material.

T H E S L O W D O W N & Little Comets @ The Garage, 19/10/11

The Slowdown certainly held their own, and for first onstage the group’s performance was not far off from that of a headline set.

Male Bonding @ The Garage, London 17/10/11

It took a while to get going, but Male Bonding’s performance was solid overall, and remarkable towards the end

Chase & Status @ Brixton O2 Academy, 14/10/2011

MC Rage: “Brixton, I wanna see f–king carnage” pretty much sums it up
