Corrosion Of Conformity/Orange Goblin – Sheffield, The Plug – 2 November 2018

November 17, 2018 // 0 Comments

Corrosion Of Conformity/Orange Goblin – Sheffield, The Plug – 2 November 2018https://ift.tt/2zZFxDD It’s not often a website gets to review two gigs on the same tour, but as the supporting cast on NOLA legends Corrosion Of Conformity’s Irish dates was completely different from that which accompanied them around Shit Island, then there was a justifiable for doubling up on the show coverage. We sent our resident Californian émigré along to the Sheffield leg of the tour, so click the link to find out what he thought – and why he wants to be like a man called John: from Gig Reviews [read on]

Hard Rock Hell – Pwllheli, Hafan Y Mor Holiday Camp – 10 November 2018

Hard Rock Hell – Pwllheli, Hafan Y Mor Holiday Camp – 10 November 2018https://ift.tt/2Q1wRGI You should never mix work with rock ‘n’ roll – and, of course, the latter always takes primacy (although the first four-letter word does help pay for the others) – but that is exactly what happened to our resident gigaholic, when he was forced to bale out early on the final afternoon of HRH’s Pwllheli farewell. Find out what action he did manage to catch on the other side of the link: from Gig Reviews [read on]

Brant Bjork/The Sonic Dawn – London, The Garage, London – 9 November 2018

Brant Bjork/The Sonic Dawn – London, The Garage, London – 9 November 2018https://ift.tt/2zbYKm1 Desert rock legend Brant Bjork last weekend paid an all-too-infrequent flying visit to these shores, as he hit north London for what was, sadly for UK fans, the only Über Kingdom date on his current European tour. A packed Garage awaitsed and the gig was eagerly anticipated, not least by our very own Jim Rowland: from Gig Reviews [read on]

Hard Rock Hell XII – Pwllheli, Hafan Y Mor Holiday Camp – 9 November 2018https://ift.tt/2JZrAtQ Having been its home for nigh on the best part of a decade, Hard Rock Hell this past weekend bade farewell to Pwllheli prior its move to pastures new – firstly just along the north Wales coast a bit and then over to the other side of the Uber Kingdom. Our resident gigaholic was up bright and early to catch the Friday action: from Gig Reviews [read on]

Hard Rock Hell XII – Pwllheli, Hafan Y Mor Holiday Camp – 8 November 2018https://ift.tt/2qEC9cV In case you missed the ferry bearing the news, this weekend’s instalment of Hard Rock Hell is the last to be held in north Wales, with both the main festival and its associated spin-offs moving to pastures new in 2019. Our resident gigaholic made the short trip down from Liverpool to see if Pwllheli would bow out in style: from Gig Reviews [read on]

Darkest Era/Celtachor/Death The Leveller – Belfast, Limelight 2 – 3 November 2018

November 10, 2018 // 0 Comments

Darkest Era/Celtachor/Death The Leveller – Belfast, Limelight 2 – 3 November 2018https://ift.tt/2Fi4sbh Two bands that play so infrequently you could probably count their combined number of live appearances in any single year on the fingers of one hand – and not need your thumb! And one that was making their Belfast debut. That was the prospect that awaited Monk and DQ this past weekend as they headed out of ÜRHQ and into the chilly Saturday afternoon air for the short stroll to their local pub to catch two of the finest exponents of the heavy metal artform, Celtic style: from Gig Reviews [read on]

Melvins – Manchester, Academy 2 – 28 October 2018

Melvins – Manchester, Academy 2 – 28 October 2018https://ift.tt/2Ddka4I Still touring on the back of their new album, ‘Pinkus Abortion Technician’, The Melvins recently rolled back into Manchester, and our resident gigaholic felt it would be quite remiss not to catch them twice in the same year… So another game of which trains are running saw him venture back across to Manchester for some slightly more fun experimental fun – oo-er missus: from Gig Reviews [read on]

King Crimson – Birmingham, Symphony Hall – 6 November 2018

November 9, 2018 // 0 Comments

King Crimson – Birmingham, Symphony Hall – 6 November 2018https://ift.tt/2Qt7QkH Very few bands can get away without a support, but then King Crimson are not just any band. Forty-nine years from their inception, their new ‘An Evening With Uncertain Times’ tour had our resident gigaholic heading down to Birmingham for a packed Symphony Hall. Signs either side of the stage, as well as outside, warned people there would be a zero tolerance of cameras or recordings during the evening, which led the big lad to wonder quite what he could expect, as he took his extremely cramped seat in the auditorium.
