***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...]

Cast your mind back to the London dance music scene of 2010 and you may recall a pair of onesie-clad gentlemen venturing out of the woods with a string of EPs and remixes between their paws. The 2 Bears – Joe Goddard, who is also one fifth of electro outfit Hot Chip, and Raf Rundell  [read more...]

Funk is a strange animal. But as any DJ can attest, nothing gets a crowd smiling and dancing quicker. Utterly infectious in its simplicity and insistent in its grooves, funk, when executed properly, feels like the very essence of a party in musical form. But it’s oft-maligned. Yes, the music that soundtracked the civil rights  [read more...]

£8 tickets

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.

Seeing Tamikrest around this time last year at The Komedia was a spectacle that has lived in the memory, their 90 minute performance leaving the audience danced out and with red raw hands from clapping hard and long. Hailing from Mali, the band are Tuareg people, a nomadic tribe who reside mainly in Saharan North  [read more...]

£15 tickets

A U R O R A, this year’s release by Australian born but Iceland residing composer/producer Ben Frost isn’t just a career highlight, it feels like the logical conclusion of all his work to date. Active since 2001, it was 2007’s Theory of Machines and 2009’s and By The Throat that started to bring his  [read more...]

Be warned, for should you go and see Band of Skulls you will be blown you away with the sheer, mind-melting size of the sound they create. Which is not to say that they play heavy metal – far from it at times – but simply that when it’s time to rock, for a three  [read more...]

A few years ago this correspondent played a gig in a band called Syte and the Sound. We had spent a few years playing some raucous if sloppily performed shows, released an EP to mixed reviews and split shortly after. Inglorious, but a lot of fun. At one show, up in Leeds, we witnessed a  [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...]

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. Their sound is so fully formed that you would think they’ve spent a lifetime honing their trippy craft. Now on the  [read more...]

with Meddicine and Eva Bowan - 8:00pm Sat 6th Dec 2014 @ West Hill Hall
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. That fix that also includes: Naked Lunch, Kenneth Anger, Alexander Shulgin and Robert Crumb. The Silver Apples are perhaps not quite the same counterculture household names, but they have a fizzy  [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...]

You don’t have to many gigs to notice there is a prevalence for krautrock influenced bands at the moment. 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 reason for  [read more...]
