Fate Of The Sun – Hey Mate, Hey Mate!

Picture the scene: you’ve met a pal for a swift pint after work or stopped in a bar with your other half during a weekend afternoon shopping trip and you’re accosted by a total loose canon you used to go to school with or some live wire friend of a friend you had a 5Continue reading “Fate Of The Sun – Hey Mate, Hey Mate!”

Cardiff riot-grrrl inspired five-piece Panic Shack are big fans of Boots/Superdrug/town centre lunchtime convenience food, confessing that latest single ‘Meal Deal’ was originally a straightforward punky tribute to the ham sandwich, salt & vinegar crisp and bottle of lemonade combo, but recent political events saw the group rewrite the record to recognise it’s brilliant simplicityContinue reading “Panic Shack – Meal Deal”

Spyres & Sterling Press – Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff – 13/10/2022

Only a smattering of onlookers stand waiting early doors at Clwb Ifor Bach this evening, so we’re guessing that word of Sterling Press hasn’t yet reached Wales’ capital but we assume this won’t be the case for long. With three punchy single releases to their name and a few UK tours, the Liverpool-based four pieceContinue reading “Spyres & Sterling Press – Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff – 13/10/2022”

Static Inc – Brithgofion

Angel Hotel – Automobile

Escapist abandonment doesn’t come any more insistently joyful than Cardiff four-piece Angel Hotel’s latest single ‘Automobile’.
