Listen now Recommended Gig

November sees King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard bring their talents to Sticky Mike’s, and it’ll prove hard to believe this Melbourne psych rock seven piece have only been in existence for three years.

Listen now Recommended Gig
£11 tickets

Since the dawn of time The Silver Apples have been handed down through generations of weirdos that just need that specific gonzo psychedelic fix.

The amount of sub-genre defining heavy metal released in the years from 1986-92 is ludicrous. Reign In Blood (’86), Scum (’87) Altars of Madness(’89) and A Blaze In A Northern Sky (’92) are records that have come to define thrash metal, grindcore, death metal and black metal respectively and have rarely, if ever, been surpassed  [read more...]

If you’ve never heard of Netherlanders The Ex before then where have you been? Since 1979 they have been mixing all the best things that came from punk: new wave, erudite politics, gonzo noise rock and not giving a fuck; with all manner of disparate ‘world’ influences: eastern European folk, sub-Saharan beats, and of course  [read more...]

Listen now Recommended Gig

Nordic: bold, resilient, distinctive, ancient. Giants: massive people. Come on, you know Nordic Giants. Or at least you ought to know them. The bafflingly wonderful post-rock oracle in the distance. Like a vocal-less Cocteau Twins or a less smarmy Sigur Ros, but with a gravitational pull. One of the few bands that can play a  [read more...]

Listen now Recommended Gig
£8.50 tickets

There are numerous reasons for that: the much celebrated BBC documentary, the general air of coolness it gives of, it’s quite easy (sorry, it is), and of course, it is incredible music. Well, another  [read more...]
