Hidden Orchestra – Live @ Union Chapel

Hidden Orchestra - Union Chapel

Friday 17th October, London This felt very special. Hidden Orchestra were always going to deliver a great live show – they are one of the most consistent avant-garde live acts in the UK, after all – but no one, not a superfan like myself, nor the band members themselves, could’ve predicted the otherworldly power that [...]

Tuesday 14th October, London Glass Animals are without doubt one of the most exciting British bands to arise in the last year or two.  I’ve had the pleasure of seeing them twice now, firstly at Electric Picnic this year (which was unbelievable may I add) and on Tuesday at Oval Space in East London’s Bethnal [...]

Friday 11th October, Lodnon  When the last echo of ‘Born Slippy‘ faded away and Karl Hyde, wearing his distinctive sailor shirt, pronounced the last “thank you” of the night, I eventually tried to reach the exit of the Royal Festival Hall. But it was quite a facer. An exhilarated and jazzed crowd completely surrounded me – flushed [...]
