Gengahr @ Bungalows and Bears Sheffield

An Interview With… Alvarez Kings

After years building a fan base and crafting their sound, South Yorkshire band Alvarez Kings are ready to unleash their debut album on a music scene crying out for a guitar band to do something different.

Before Stine Tweedale and Cat Myers stormed the stage, support band Eat Fast made an almighty racket that served as an odd precursor to the more melodic headline act. The band formerly known as ‘EAT’ channelled early Cribs at their best but a set plagued with sound issues did little to endear the band to the Sheffield crowd. One to watch for the future though perhaps.

An Interview With… Tom Hingley

Tom Hingley was the lead singer of legendary Manchester band Inspiral Carpets. After writing an acclaimed book of his time with the band and performing live across the country for years, he is back playing all the Inspiral Carpets hits with his backing band the Kar-pets. I caught up with Tom to preview his upcoming free gig at Social Bar on 24th September.
