Outlines Festival: Alvarez Kings, The Crookes, Slow Club

As I’m an old man who’s life is almost over, Sheffield music festival Tramlines is pretty much all I look forward to most years as I slime my way between fast food outlets and the pub like a tired slug waiting to die. With that cheery sentiment in mind, it was only a matter of time before I succumbed to Tramlines sister festival Outlines.

Top Ten Songs of 2016

Of all the lists produced on this site, this one is the most subjective and changeable. A month ago it could have been completely different and indeed in a months time. That being said I have tried to pick what I consider to be the most interesting, clever or just plain brilliant songs of the last 12 months. Starting with…

Top Ten Albums of 2016

2016 has not been the greatest year for music. There have been more heart wrenching deaths than iconic albums released. Away from the ongoing shit storm that is ‘pop’ music (whatever the fuck that means any more), there is still some gold to be found beneath the grime.

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. I caught up with singer Simon Thompson at The Leopard Doncaster, on the eve of their first ever headline show.

Tramlines 2016: Day 2 – Teleman, Crookes, Mystery Jets, MILBURN!!

Day 2 kicked off with a sweet taste of home as my fellow Doncastrians Ginger Tom tackled the  Tramlines main stage. Bizarrely, this was my first time seeing Ginger Tom and their breezy brand of indie pop was perfect for a summer festival. Up next were Northern indie rock band Little Comets. The Tyne and Wear band were, for want of a better word, shit. A set weighed down by songs from their most recent album left the crowd restless and even cuts from their first and best album lacked energy and spark. They have essentially become a Paul Simon cover band, and nobody wants that.

DISCLAIMER – As always, I am only one man so there is plenty of stuff I haven’t seen yet, most notably Deadpool and Vinyl. Don’t treat me too harshly.

An Interview with… The Crookes

 The Crookes are possibly one of the most underrated bands around at the moment. Having just released their fourth album ‘Lucky Ones’, the Sheffield band are currently undergoing a headline tour across the UK. I caught up with lead singer George Waite before their gig at Doncaster Diamond Live Lounge.
