INTERVIEW: GROVES

Groves are a noise/punk/hippie three-piece band from Manchester (They are not the five-piece who recently played the Now Wave stage at Sounds from the Other City). The ‘throat-splitting’ vocals are provided by Luca Corda, the ‘thunderous drums’ by his brother Mattia Corda and the gut-drilling bass by Richard Clarke. There are a few reasons why I […]

WHO ARE YA? LESS WIN

From time to time, one of our contributors will recommend an artist/band they think deserves  your attention. No record labels, PR companies, bands or band’s management will ever have made these recommendations. It is simply one music fan putting their taste on the line in the hope of sharing good music. The questions are intended […]

INTERVIEW: BOXED IN

It should really not surprise us that a member of the Manchester cult band Keith, would soon resurface. Especially, not with those keys that are so central to the Keith sound. The man behind those keys is Boxed In and when you find he is a former member of Keith, it is quite hard to […]

INTERVIEW: JUPITER C

Jupiter C make otherworldly sci-fi music, and create a dystopic soundtrack to the world of J.G Ballard, who incidentally was the subject of both of the duo’s dissertations. Car crashes, obscenity and war-torn regions are all here, but somehow beautiful and entrancing. Their latest release comes in the cassette form of ‘Insect Eyes’; a song which […]

INTERVIEW: ESKA

“The best musicians understand silence” Nearly two years ago I witnessed Owiny Sigoma Band. Throughout the show, a black woman swayed in an entranced submission to the band in front of her. Later, she stepped on stage and sang in a boisterous but heavenly voice. Until tonight, I did not know that that was Eska. […]

INTERVIEW: BERNARD & EDITH

The last time I spoke with Bernard and Edith (here), they had just released their bewitching single ‘Poppy’. There was no hope of a record deal with Bella Union and the thought of recording an album was a distant one, a dream drifting over their every thought. A year on and this is all a […]

INTERVIEW: STEALING SHEEP

Stealing Sheep’s infectious nature is immediate when they walk in the Band of The Wall dressing room. At first, Lucy (drums) and Emily (guitar and pretty much everything else) arrive, before Rebecca (keys and most of the vocals) join us. Rebecca sits right next to me and eyes me cautiously, ‘You look like so many […]
