So anyway. The Fall are playing Concorde 2. What, The Fall, you mean THE FALL??? Really? Best band ever! Ok, so that’s a bit much. But is it? It’s easy to throw endless hyperbole at ‘classic’ bands. In fact, in 2014 it is pretty much de rigour to blow every pre-nineties act up into a  [read more...]

£8 tickets

It’s not often that a writer has the opportunity to bill something as either unique or unmissable, but if there is any night that we’ve come across in recent times that fits those criteria this is the one. Mississippi Records On Tour is billed as a film, talk and presentation from Eric Issakson, Mississippi Records label  [read more...]

with Plurals, Thee Hairee Kuntz and Sly & The Family Drone - 8:00pm Fri 26th Sep 2014 @ Campbell Road Music Studio
Listen now Recommended Gig
£5

Vincent Vocoder Voice released the best album by a Brighton band last year. That is all. In fact, no it’s not. They are terrific live, look well scary, and swear a lot. Like your gran does. In any normal universe Plurals well-crafted drone minimalist miserablism should completely alienate this audience. You know what though? They  [read more...]

Lutine : Lutine album launch w/ Bela Emerson
with Bela Emerson - 7:30pm Sat 27th Sep 2014 @ St. Laurence Church Falmer
Listen now Recommended Gig
FREE

Sometimes simplicity blindsides you. For their appearance at last month’s Edge of the Sea festival Lutine performed in the bar and all trade stopped. No one dared raise a whispered order above the two piece’s bewitching act. Sparse arrangements on a variety of instruments old and new underpinned harmonies both fragile and compelling. That overlong  [read more...]

Goat : One Inch Badge presents
with Lay Llamas - 7:30pm Wed 1st Oct 2014 @ Concorde
Listen now Recommended Gig
£15.19 tickets

Powerful, virile and psychedelic without losing a playful and sexy sense of humour, there really is no other band like Goat. We are truly lucky to have them do a rare-as-hen’s-teeth show in our backyard this year. For the uninitiated, Goat are a Swedish band who batter your senses with a psychedelic trance melting pot  [read more...]

The Phantom Band : One Inch Badge presents

Listen now
£9 tickets

It’s the Friday night of the Great Escape 2009 and this writer, having ruined his chances of catching Holy Fuck as a result of drunken procrastination, takes a look at his program and vaguely remembers reading something in Drowned In Sound extolling the virtues of a mysterious Scottish outfit called The Phantom Band. As mistakes  [read more...]

Let’s say Mark E Smith has an illegitimate son; there would be no better candidate for the honour than Andy Falkous. Consider the similarities: both are truculent, outspoken, intelligent, difficult, master wordsmiths, musically familiar yet individual, bluntly honest and adored by their respective cults. Hell, their taste in wives extends to having them in the  [read more...]

Atmosphere : One Inch Badge presents
7:30pm Wed 8th Oct 2014 @ Concorde
Listen now
£14 tickets

Minnesota’s 4th most famous export (behind Prince, Bob Dylan and ‘being nice’) return to Brighton to hawk their adrenaline-fuelled indie-rap antics, playing Concorde 2 as part of their North of Hell Tour. Rapper Slug and producer Ant, better known as Atmosphere, are indie-rap legends and a much vaunted live act. In the early 00s, alongside  [read more...]

T=0 by Tall Ships wasn’t just this writers favourite song by a Brighton act in 2012. It was his favourite song of 2012. A masterful piece of emotive mathy rock with the perfect mix of brain and a soul. Dynamic but simple, it goes exactly where it needs to get to with the greatest of ease.  [read more...]

Sage Francis : One Inch Badge presents

Listen now Recommended Gig
£13 tickets

Ahead of his impending Copper Gone album drop, legendary indie-hop wordsmith Sage Francis returns to Brighton for an intimate live performance at The Haunt. For the uninitiated, Sage Francis can be accurately described as a true hip-hop visionary. Having earned his stripes in the unforgiving battle-rap scene of the mid 90s, he became an internet  [read more...]

***This preview is an updated version of one previously run for the band’s abandoned date in April 2014. Let’s hope Jason makes it this time! All tickets from the Albert gig are valid.*** If the band name Sleaford Mods gives you a vision of a nauseatingly unoriginal Jam revival act, a la The Rifles or  [read more...]

White Lung : Teen Creeps presents

You want high tempo pissed off punk rawk combustion? You want anything else? Why? White Lung are the real deal in a world of show-offs who’ve watched too many hardcore documentaries and care too much about fashion. The ‘scene’ is full of twatty men and Vancouver’s White Lung are not going to take it any  [read more...]

So, The Computers. You’d be forgiven for expecting tinfoil-clad, analogue synth wielding Button Moon krautiness. Well for once a band will play in our fair city that doesn’t have any slither of Cage/Stockhausen et al. No, The Computers are in fact a five mouthed hardcore ‘n’ roll ‘n’ hardcore sprinting runabout. Equal parts War, Link  [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...]
