Joan As Police Woman comes to St George's this week, ready to hit you with the vulnerability and lyrical intensity from her recent album, Damned Devotion. Zander Sharp previews.
To fill a venue like Bath’s Komedia on a Sunday night is impressive. To fill it in a city that represents the opposite of your band is even more impressive. But IDLES launched their nationwide tour with a sold-out gig in Bath. Zander Sharp and Rowan Allen were there too.
IDLES have found their footing by fighting a time of polarized politics and austerity economics. Supported by LICE, they bring the fight to Bath's Komedia on Sunday. Zander Sharp previews.
"All the women had been summoned to the front, where something between a rugby scrum and a bacchanal seemed to be taking place." Zander Sharp and Rowan Allen saw Dream Wife own The Exchange.
"There’s a bit of wildness, a lot of intelligence, and a dramatic streak in play, which should promise an electric stage presence." Zander Sharp looks forward to Dream Wife at The Exchange.
"If you were listening from outside the door of the Louisiana’s upstairs venue, you’d probably have thought you heard two very similar bands." Zander Sharp examines the differences between Gun Outfit and Snails.
With a smooth sound that would make Kurt Vile say, ‘yeh, man,’ and washy guitars that could have come straight out of Meat Puppets’ Up On The Sun, Gun Outfit seem poised to ride the slacker revival wave of the last few years.
The Go! Team brought a reduced-size squad to Rough Trade's Live Room, presenting songs from their new album and warming up for full-band dates to come.
