INTERVIEW: FRUIT BOMB

Last night, Fruit Bomb, Fallowfield’s very own Garage Pop band, were picked by The Skinny to play alongside Menace Beach, Weirds and False Advertising.

INTERVIEW: THE WEATHER STATION

Tamara Lindemann (The Weather Station) has had to rush off for lunch, after being stuck in hours of traffic on her way to Gullivers (gig reviewed here). This makes interviewing her rather difficult – my explanation of why I’m here to the woman on the door goes down badly and I receive a lot of […]

INTERVIEW: The Cult of Dom Keller

The Cult of Dom Keller are a quartet based out of Nottingham. For the last 7 years these DIY sonic alchemists have been creating whacked out soundscapes and songs that appear to have been born from another universe, all from the confines of their sonic bunker. 2015 will be the year they emerge from the […]

INTERVIEW: ELLE MARY

Her ironically titled EP ‘Happiness’, released at the end of May, has given us an insight into Elle’s body of art and the brutal honesty of it is startling and stark. Today I meet her in Fallow Cafe; she is sat in the back corner when I arrive with a glass of wine and her […]

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).
