A new bit of the site with the quick-and-dirty first line and last paragraph of the full review. Alphabetical by band name. Reviews no longer on this page are now at AtoZ of Reviews.

Apologies, one or two of these from mid-June disappeared for a while, hopefully all back now.





The Amberblacks

              Wed 1 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Superpunchy modish punks.

The Amberblacks justly deserve to be described as blistering. An astonishing high-speed release of kinetic energy. Not quite enough variation to hold your attention throughout, but never a languid moment. We gotta stand up, fall down, and mess around.

Appropriate Agent

               Thu 2 June 2005 State of Decay 2 @ The Purple Turtle

Eclectic but anthemic rock, metal and punk.

Appropriate Agent captivate by lighting a cool fire. The frontman is engrossing, the guitarist a student of rock icons. But there's a little too much of all kinds of everything - the clutch of covers includes Papa Roach, Metallica (Enter Sanman), Beatles (I Saw Her Standing There) and Judas Priest (Breaking the Law) - this last the one best suited to their sound. They will have to focus to advance, but what the heck? Metal cover madness is fun.

Army of One

              Tue 14 June 2005 State of Decay @ Hope and Anchor

Unusual proggy punk rock.

As musicians, Army of One produce a catchy and engaging prog-punk groove. As vocalists and lyricists, perhaps they need to mature, but they use their choirboy soprano well. For the future, a little stoicism is required out on the wild and windy moor.

Attack Switch Attack

              Thu 16 June 2005              @ Bull and Gate

Gnarly and playful post-punk excellence.

If any of the bands on the local circuit are truly essential, Attack Switch Attack are one of 'em. Retro though they may seem, the borrowed sounds are eclectic and the re-use wonderfully inventive. Attack Switch Attack have the rare skill of combining groove and catchiness with enough awkward bolshiness to keep it feeling edgy and awkward. Wild wildlife, spicing up the same old scene, not following it.

The Blackouts

               Fri 10 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Beautiful anger in the form of semi-acoustic punk'n'grunge.

Jangling and squealing guitar, fierce vocals, and taut writing are the components that make The Blackouts magical. These songs call to mind classics like The Only Ones' "Another Girl, Another Planet" and Sugar's "If I can't change your mind". Twisty guitar shimmers could almost be sampled from the Banshees' "Happy House". Aqs a committed follower of Bob Mould, I consider The Blackouts to be inspired. Not a good idea, an excellent idea.

Bliss Abyss

               Tue 7 June 2005 State of Decay @ Hope and Anchor

Quasi-acoustica fronted by a female guitar guru.

Are female singer-songwriters about to fuel the new wave of campfire folk-rock? Bliss Abyss sound like they could, but if a record company got involved, they'd probably strip away the rhythm section and attempt to transform our chanteuse into Dido. A record company tradition of love and hate. Bliss Abyss play with gentle passion that deserves a hushed folk club setting.

Blue Mojo

              Mon 13 June 2005              @ Bull and Gate

Retread funky blues-metal.

Blues-rock bands are not 10 a penny, they're 100 a penny, it seems that you need to pay them to go away. Blue Mojo do it fine, but there's nothing remotely inventive here, nor is there anything stripped down and dirty. Seventies through nineties, interesting things were going on with this sound; Stones, Steve Miller Band, Wild Cherry, Fun Lovin' Criminals. Why bother with marbles when you can have gems? Blue Mojo is just frowning by numbers.

Collapse

               Fri 3 June 2005 Silver Rocket @ Upstairs at The Garage

Crucial post-punk noisecore.

Collapse is the peak (or trough) of musical gamesmanship. This juxtaposition of what you understand as music and what you understand as white noise is shocking and exciting. Comfortable bass and drum substructure, terrified guitar and vocal scream-topping. You'll believe a juggernaut can fly.

                                                                               Author: RMC

Cove

              Wed 8 June 2005 Sink the Boat @ The Yacht Club

Archetypal post-rock anthems.

Cove are about black, death, plague, terror, incarceration, burial, tolling bells, the contortion and reversal of time. Frightening ominous noise played with a Dr Who sense of familiarity and humour. Cove's trademark characteristic is to construct a sequence of two or three simple elements, each repeated through the piece and subtly developed. It's simple grandeur rather than show-off complexity that makes Cove so special. Titans of rock.

Detwiije

              Sun 12 June 2005              @ Bull and Gate

Complex explorations of sonic shape and texture in four movements.

I had my doubts about Detwiije when I first saw them last year, I felt there was too little sense of direction, and too many switches that seemed to abandon all that had preceded them. Only one of the four pieces in tonight's set had either of these features, and I can say without misgivings that it was a show of beguiling passion and beauty. Classical pieces written for modern instruments. Close off your mind, relax, and float downstream (from The Beatles, with karma).

Diastole

              Tue 14 June 2005 State of Decay @ Hope and Anchor

Cerebral progressions of punky post-rock.

Unusually oblique for a Hope and Anchor Tuesday, Diastole construct 4 pieces of captivatingly contorted post-rock. Yup, it's pretentious, it's mystically Eastern, and it's tokily "like, yeah man". But they're creating progressions you can grasp, sounds that surprise you, and thoughtfulness that scares away the metalheads. Robert Smith speaks: "an impression of sound, then everything is gone forever".

Drive Like Crazy

              Tue 14 June 2005 State of Decay @ Hope and Anchor

Punky rock'n'roll and atmospherics.

The showy guitar triad and hooky bass of Drive Like Crazy makes 'em virtually essential. A marriage of classic punk and impressive muscianship. A cue and a cure for the summertime blues.

                                                                               Author: RMC

The Duvets

               Thu 2 June 2005 State of Decay 2 @ The Purple Turtle

Fine agit-punk mixing grind and surf.

Fall and Pixies influenced guitar bands are becoming ever more common, but there's always room for another good one, and The Duvets fit the bill. There's a great dynamic tension in the 3-way contrast between the gleeful slashing of the musicians, the Bunter-like cheekiness of the singer's appearance, and the curmudgeonly vocal delivery. Grinding punk repetition at its best. There's a pun to be had, but I won't say it if you don't say it.

Eddy Fink

               Mon 6 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Epic alternative prog-rock and awkward eighties jangle in equal measure.

Don't expect anything easy to grasp, but Eddy Fink are one of the most distinctive alt-rock acts around; despite some apparent common sources, they knew how before Franz Ferdinand knew how. They may have a few Radiohead delusions, but the mix of high-gliding vocals and clashing guitar jangles is very much their own. Eddy Fink write beautiful unfathomable music. You could have the world in your ears tonight.

The Eraserheads

              Wed 1 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Essential art-rock cabaret madness.

I love the Eraserheads, it is impossible to resist wilful waywardness from serious musicians. Their t-shirts hint at their influences: no surprises from The Pixies, but I've never before seen one honouring one of David Bowie's earliest and finest albums "The Man Who Sold the World". Just the librium and me, and the EST makes three. In their own write: "There's too much to enjoy".

f2k

              Wed 1 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

They do blues-rock though, don't they?

f2k are accomplished and passionate, they play great Britpop, but: good tunes, hopelessly over-plundered genre. I can't tolerate Oasis' theft of a Charlatan's song, let alone a whole bunch of clones. "Good enough for me", they sing. Sorry, but there is nowhere new to go with this sound, and it is definitely not good enough for me.

                                                                               Author: RMC

The Fray

               Sat 4 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Poppy and engaging sophistopunks.

Three-piece is the most noble format, male-female front lines are everybody's friends, and intelligent punk is back on the agenda. The Fray are fresh but faultless. To go with the Echobelly flow, "Some more of this is what we need".

Genius

               Thu 2 June 2005 State of Decay 2 @ The Purple Turtle

Summery out-there rock'n'pop.

Musically, Genius deserve their moniker big-time, this is Teenage-Fanclub-grade guitar pop. The vocals are unbeatable. But lyrically, Genius are verging on the wet. Yesterday, Sergeant Pepper seemed so far away.

                                                                               Author: RMC

Gentlemen of Largesse

               Thu 9 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Indie gits who are annoyingly clever and too consciously wacky.

I hated the Gentleman of Largesse set, and there would be no point in pretending otherwise. Being clever for the sake of cleverness does not make a band interesting or fun. They're good at doing "classic" off-the-wall, but when they're gone, you don't remember a single hook. In the Half Man Half Biscuit sprit of sarcasm "Keep Mrs Honeybun right out of sight cos there's gonna be a riot down in Camden tonight".

The Gimps

              Sat 18 June 2005 Sump Puppy @ Bull and Gate

Pounding ramshackle punk'n'roll.

The Gimps are up for the Perrier "comic timing" award. Not a happy position for a band. This is punk at its most shambolic, messy and unrehearsed. But that's an old joke, and it needs nuggets of greatness or originality in the pigswill to work. In a Gimp mask, no-one can hear you scream.

Greenland

              Thu 16 June 2005              @ Bull and Gate

Jerky guitar pop with crafty lyrics.

Greenland's sound focuses on the best moments of 1985 "Head on the Door" album, and amplifies the key components. Songs like "In Between Days" and "Push". Adolescent-pleasing popsongs, with light strummery laid over controlling bass, all around 3 minutes long and racing to an abrupt end. If I could level a criticism, it might be to suggest a few changes in pace and tone, a bit of "Sinking", "Close to Me". But, to someone who started the 1980s as a teenager and never quite gave up teen-angst, Greenland are a treat. Six different ways inside your heart, and Greenland have definitely found one.

King Baby

               Sat 4 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Rock'n'roll songcraft with an angst overload.

If you're looking for twisted beats and sounds you've never heard before, King Baby are not for you. If you want neatly constructed rock'n'roll with some nifty lyrics, King Baby are a treat. Learning to run and walk at the same time.

Kitty Hudson

              Thu 16 June 2005              @ Bull and Gate

Cheerfully traditional punk from the days of the two-fingered salute.

Kitty Hudson don't make it up to the barriers, let alone break them down. But, as shouty and basic punked-up rock'n'roll goes, KH are perfect. They know the art of the instantly memorable pop-song: Keep It Simple, Stupid. As the Damned would have it £Gonna scream and shout 'til my dying breath, gonna smash it up 'til there's nothing left".

Kyote

              Sun 12 June 2005              @ Bull and Gate

An unbelievably intense churning of post-rock groove.

Kyote are my new favourite band. The sound is an utterly irresistible combination of grit and smoothness, of the repetitive and the random. The only acts in the last few years to give me that instant "wow" factor have been Stanton, Cat On Form and Joeyfat. An inspired Kyote thought to consider: "Pollen melts the snow".

                                                                               Author: RMC

La Momo

              Sat 18 June 2005 Sump Puppy @ Bull and Gate

Stomping, bouncing bombshells and fuzz guitar.

Tonight La Momo are a rebellious beatbox. Grittier and dirtier than usual, but emphasis still firmly on jumping to the beat. Groovy rock'n'roll with the umbilical cord to Mother Earth intact. In their own words: "Go go with your Momo".

Ladies and Gentlemen

               Fri 10 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Roughly hewn cabaret-rock that's surprisingly engaging.

The Ladies and Gentlemen sound is raw as fuck, none of your polished and well-rehearsed musicianship. There are moments when you think you've just watched The Cure play "Do the Hansa" 3 times on the trot. But the gnarly repetitiveness and squiggly guitar tied to purring bass tunes won me over in the end. We love an audience.

Lifesize

               Mon 6 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Gentle rock folksiness with a hint of Americana.

There is something spiritual about the Lifesize set. The guitar pairing is their acme of talent that raises them above the ocean of folk-rock-lite wannabes. With an appetite for bursting religion's bubbles, Lifesize find inspiration in music. Fighting their own Babylon.

Like a Stuntman

               Fri 3 June 2005 Silver Rocket @ Upstairs at The Garage

Haunting Frankfurt electro-guitar weirdery.

Like a Stuntman have developed a odd special blend of guitar and electronica that is simultaneously catchy and gnarly: first London gig, and we all love 'em. Their captivating cover of "Oh! Little Brother" from "The Wonderful and Frightening World of the Fall" makes the song and the audience their own. Quirky enough to inspire the words "Ich bin ein Frankfurter", but homely as a hot-dog.

                                                                               Author: RMC

The Lonely Band

               Tue 7 June 2005 State of Decay @ Hope and Anchor

Rock'n'roll'n'blues with a punky attitude.

The Lonely Band are a bit of a puzzle frankly: great sounds, but no memorable songs; 30 year throwback rock, but with a punk makeover. The Lonely Band set flies and rattles along like a runaway train. Upcoming album title is a fine quotation: "Hell is other people" (Jean-Paul Sartre). I still keep thinking of the Husker Du title: "Don't wanna know if you are lonely". Black shirts, black night.

Matron

              Sun 19 June 2005              @ Bull and Gate

Ooer, silly rock posturing.

Matron metal is fun, but they're eking a slim haul of minerals from an overworked seam. Matron advance heavy metal about as much as Terry Pratchett advances sci-fi, but Pratchett sells. Not even close to passing from subconscious parody to inventive synthesis. There's supreme evil beings in the jar-oh.

Mugstar

               Fri 3 June 2005 Silver Rocket @ Upstairs at The Garage

Nasty, groovy, anthemic. Could you want more?

Mugstar are a chainsaw massacre of grinding metal with a huge hooky bass. They're wonderfully dynamic, all 3 mobile members taking a turn at touring around the audience and ending the night perched on the monitors that front the stage. A blistering guitar and bass groovathon culminating in a crescendo of squealing and whistling feedback. Mugstar don't play a set, they perform a show. The ace of musical tirades.

The Mules

               Fri 10 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Quirky vaudevillian folk-rock.

The Mules aim to put the (blue) grass firmly back into good time music. The audience is mad for it, hitting the pogo button and skipping zydeco promenades. I keep expecting the band to sweep into Moon of Alabama or When The Saints Come Marching In. The Mules create a twenty-first century Beggars' Opera. We must have whiskey, oh you know why…

Multipurpose Chemical

              Mon 13 June 2005              @ Bull and Gate

Funk-punk metallers with a laboured sense of humour.

The sound of Multipurpose Chemical is great, a bit of psycho anger, rock posturing and slapping bass never did anyone any harm. Their unlikely cover of War (What is it Good For?) (a Norman Whitfield/ Barrett Strong song recorded by soul icon Edwin Starr) works out fine. What I can't stomach is this cultivated wackiness, the idea that people will have fun if you jerk about and give a running commentary on why the audience OUGHT to have fun. When a band relax and enjoys itself, the audience usually follows. You've got to fight for your right not to be told to party.

Mundane

              Sun 19 June 2005              @ Bull and Gate

Death metal with thrash and zombie elements.

Sometimes I'm lost for characteristics that distinguish one metal act from another, and if a metal act band names itself Mundane, you have to wonder if they have the same problem. But Mundane do have something a helluva lot of thrash-metal lacks: tunes and changes of pace. The Mundane moniker sells them a little short, but unremarkable would be a fair description. And they thought they were being sarcastic.

My 21 Grams

               Sat 4 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Smells like generic heavy rock.

Name a band that offers you a choice between punk and heavy rock, and when it comes, you can't tell which one you ordered? Yup, My 21 Grams. They're spirited, even tempestuous, but undistinguished. Suck me, I'm quick.

                                                                               Author: RMC

My Empire

               Sat 4 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Thoughtful blues rock.

Showy musicians blending rock'n'roll with the blues is as old as the Stones and as common as the pebbles on the beach. My Empire's special skills are songwriting self-examination and an unbeatable vocalist. Hate to say it, but My Empire are good at what they do. Empires rise, and empires fall, but the stones remain.

Notorious HiFi Killers

              Wed 8 June 2005 Sink the Boat @ The Yacht Club

Rootsy rock'n'roll'n'blues.

This is the sequel to sixties electric blues. A radical return to origins, the Notorious HiFi Killers are Jimi Hendrix Experience Slight Return. No showy toothy string-picking here, but you'll believe a high-hat can play guitar.

                                                                               Author: RMC

Penny Red

              Tue 14 June 2005 State of Decay @ Hope and Anchor

A rare stamp of hairy punk and no wave (ho-ho).

Penny Red take the origins of gnarly rock'n'roll punk, and throw in 80s and 90s experimental indie twists. Hard to comprehend at the beginning, but grungy no-wave savoir-faire by the end. In their own words "I'm still fucking your nirvana".

                                                                               Author: RMC

Poltagroom

              Wed 8 June 2005 Sink the Boat @ The Yacht Club

Bonkers electro-bass post-rock.

Poltagroom have some catchily repeated themes and interstingly broken grooves going for them. But the total is less than the sum of the parts. This is cod-metal stomping devilry, scrambled into a soup of silliness.

                                                                               Author: RMC

Probing Cranks

              Sat 18 June 2005 Sump Puppy @ Bull and Gate

Caustic punked up rock'n'roll that jerks and grooves.

Nastiness is back on the pop agenda after a decade of fluff that dominated even guitar music, a decade in which only gangsta rappers were mad, bad and dangerous to know. Hard-wires to heads, action and speech controlled, everyone a model citizen. Maybe music fans are finally ready for the Probing Cranks' awkward catchiness and contagiously surly lyrical rants. When the Manics were young, PC meant police constable. When I was young, it meant politically correct. Now it means Probing Cranks, and that's another proposition entirely.

Rabbit

              Sat 18 June 2005 Sump Puppy @ Bull and Gate

A bizarre bazaar sound of sax and drums.

Rabbit are the kind of performers you encounter in the Lost Vagueness area of Glastonbury. A hippy homage to the mystical east, simultaneously mournful and celebratory, and somehow the most interesting performance you've ever seen at 2am after a day's worth of drug cocktails. Entertaining and watchable in small doses, the Rabbit is here then gone.

The Red Hand Band

               Fri 10 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Showy cabaret rockers flaunt their degrees in Musical Trickery.

The Red Hand Band create an impressively steamy atmosphere of bar-room excess and melodrama. The problem is, they show-off so much, they never settle into a distinctive style you could clearly identify as them. Well-written songs, but the only real consistency is negativity. When the Red Hand Band sing "You're better off dead than alive", you suspect they mean it. I'm in the Ian Astbury school on this: "Smile, it may take a while, but it's better than being nailed to the floor".

Resolute

               Thu 9 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Ostensibly a punk band, but they sound like female-fronted metal.

Apart from ex-partners being pricks, I don't know what Resolute are being Resolute about. They play accomplished unadventurous rock music, and they have a lead singer with a particularly excellent voice: where's the challenge to the system? They also say "aw-rie" a lot, I'm not sure if this is to demonstrate a West Country accent, or prove that consonants are largely redundant. File next to Four Non Blondes.

Return of the Furies

              Sun 12 June 2005              @ Bull and Gate

Female punky metallers.

Return of the Furies are proficient metal performers, ranging from the thrashy to the epic rock ballad. But, good as they may be, the only boundaries they're pushing at is the domination of heavy metal by scrawny boys with wank-stained jeans. Unless you're Beavis and Butthead, the Return of the Furies just ain't exciting.

Natalie Ross and the Renegades

               Tue 7 June 2005 State of Decay @ Hope and Anchor

Delicious female fronted noo-wave jazzery.

Ross and the Renegades play contorted but catchy punked-up pop. An unusual off-beat style sold by a captivating performance. When they play it hard, they use an extra 100 per cent (apologies to Blondie).

Scratch

              Sat 11 June 2005              @ Bull and Gate

Far Eastern bouncy punk and ska.

Scratch are silly fun, with a full-on showman at the helm. You've got to love a guy who appears to be Japanese, attempts to teach the audience how to dance ska-style, proclaims his favourite English word to be "why-aye", and confesses to being drunk on cider. You've got to love a band that can seamlessly weave together song's in the style of Green Day's "Basket Case" and the style of the Clash cover of Toots and the Maytals' "Pressure Drop". Saturday night's alright for Scatching.

Silvery

               Tue 7 June 2005 State of Decay @ Hope and Anchor

Cabaret glam-punk quirkily themes as Victoriana.

If Ziggy Stardust had been written by HG Wells, the outcome would have been something like Silvery. Vaudevillian guitar operetta spiced with ska and electro-punk. Their cover of "Seven Seas of Rye" is a modern classic, I don't remember Queen managing any of this wayward sailor drunkenness or lumbering happily into their own rendition of "Oh I do like to be beside the seaside". Silvery are a white magic orchestra. In their words, expect "Sparks and fires and carnivals".

Sludgefeast

              Sat 18 June 2005 Sump Puppy @ Bull and Gate

It's gutsy, it's turbocharged, it's redneck, it's dirty, it's clever, it's crazy, it's rock'n'roll.

Only Sludgefeast can get through a set of almost 20 songs in 30 minutes. They don't vary much, but they're all high octane ball-breakers, and they all feature trademark white-trash themes and astonishingly clever guitar flourishes. Every time I see Sludgefeast I love 'em more. Dave Grohl wishes he was in Sludgefeast.

Trench

              Sun 19 June 2005              @ Bull and Gate

Primal rock'n'roll iron ore fed into a Bessemer converter to give hard-edged hatchet metal.

On the metal scene, there are flashes of brilliant musicianship and reels of entertaining posturing, but Trench are that rare beast with both heads. On the eighth day, God dug Trench.

The Vichy Government

              Sat 18 June 2005 Sump Puppy @ Bull and Gate

Cleverly bolshie and obscure political critique in the form of poetry with electronica.

The Vichy Government are convinced that no-one likes them very much: come to that, the net of their invective is cast so wide, you get the feeling that they don't like anyone very much. Nevertheless, the sounds are playfully spooky and sinister, the voice musically inflected, and the poetry quirkily inventive. The Stranglers speak: "I cried and cried and cried until I laughed and laughed and laughed; I laughed and laughed and laughed until I cried and cried and cried".

When Gravity Fails

               Thu 9 June 2005               @ Bull and Gate

Crikey, as if global warming wasn't enough to worry about. But this is explosive metallic grunge-punk.

When Gravity Fails have the mix of originality and familiarity that new cults are built around. To describe this as edgy rock steeped in portents of doom and sorrow would be to understate its angst-rating. The non-vocal guitarman reveals his Scots origins with the most appropriate outfit for a hot June stage - kilt and boots only. The four look good, and sound mesmerising. Ladies and gentlemen, when gravity fails, we will be floating in space.

Zero

              Mon 20 June 2005              @ Bull and Gate

Wet stomach-churning cheesiness that ought to be rescued by the musicianship, but isn't.

With such a self-deprecating name, it's not surprising that Zero evoke images of living-room melodrama, bontempi keyboards, floral patterns and flock-wallpaper. They remind me of Roland Riveron's mock TV house band, Raw Sex. Zero hint at their susceptibility to mockery: "Cos I'm in on a joke and it's not fun-nee, cos I've got a bad feeling that the joke's on me". But oh! Those Phoenix Nights.
