Gig & Festival Reviews ...

Lord of The Lost

One of our guilty pleasures is a bit of Dark Glam, so when we heard Lord of The Lost were heading to the Toon as part of their recent UK tour, we made sure we were there to catch them in action.

Uli Jon Roth

When it comes to legendary guitarists, they don't come much more talented than Uli Jon Roth.  Bernie Penman headed down to Sheffield to catch the man in action when he hit the stage at The Corporation.

The New Roses

Currently making new fans everywhere they go over here on their UK tour are The New Roses.  Bernie Penman popped along to their show at Trillians Rock Bar in Newcastle to check them out and tells us all about the band's performance that night.
