LIVE: TRAAMS @ Think Tank?

March 16th, 2016 | by NUSU
On paper, TRAAMS sounded like a band I’d be totally on-board with right from the word go: experimental yet accessible punk-rockers and self-confessed lovers of bands like Can and Television, they ticked all the right boxes....

LIVE: White Hills @ Head of Steam

March 13th, 2016 | by NUSU
I think it’s fair to say that WHITE HILLS are something of an acquired taste. With their songs clocking in at an average of somewhere around the 11-minute mark, and with a musical MO that demands that you turn it up, really...

LIVE: Pellethead @ Head of Steam

March 10th, 2016 | by NUSU
Located at the Newcastle Head of Steam, the gig saw a decent turnout, especially for what was, in the truest sense of the word, a line-up of thoroughly underground bands. The main support Hold Music certainly gave an air of gloom...

LIVE: The Sherlocks at Think Tank?

February 28th, 2016 | by NUSU
It is difficult to know what to expect from a band who only have three singles and look too young to be able to have a drink at their own gig. The Sherlocks gave a well-executed performance filled with new material that promises...

LIVE: NME Awards Tour 2016 @ O2 Academy

February 9th, 2016 | by Connor McDonnell
The NME Awards Tour is always exciting. It gives a collection of new acts with bigger names such as 2015’s line up consisting of Palma Violets headlining, with The Wytches, Slaves and Fat White Family also playing. Diverse...

LIVE: The Charlatans @ O2 Academy

December 23rd, 2015 | by NUSU
Where many bands have faltered, The Charlatans have endured. When drummer Jon Brookes sadly passed away in August 2013 following a long battle with brain cancer, they faced their greatest challenge yet. As they struggled to find...

LIVE: The Zombies @ Riverside

December 15th, 2015 | by NUSU
The Zombies are one of the great British rock bands, but it’s always stumped me why they’re not held in quite the same reverence as other legends like The Kinks, The Yardbirds, and, yes, even The Beatles. Even so, I can’t...
