• The Gigs That Made February

    Not much seems to happen in February. As part of the student calendar, it’s sort of a non-month that flies by so quickly that we’ve barely recovered from January exams before we have to wake up, smell the pancakes and ready ourselves for March deadlines. However, living in Nottingham...
  • Live Review: Sleaford Mods, Rock City (09/10/2015)

    What does it say about us when this is the music that moves us? One man holding a beer playing beats off a laptop to the left of stage while to the right another spits foul-mouthed vitriol into a microphone. What does it say about the sentiment of a...
  • Album Review: Kagoule – Urth

    Nottingham’s Kagoule are comfortably rising to prominence, set apart from a clutter of new bands that seem like recycled Nirvana groupies.

  • Live Review: Dot to Dot Festival (24/05/2015)

    Riding on the back of their Glastonbury performance, Kagoule’s tour takes them to headlining The Garage’s Summer of New Blood. It’s a reasonable mix which makes up the gig’s attendees. A fair few old gig veterans, a fair few fans of the bands and a fair few people who...
  • Live Review: Kagoule / Hang, Lacehouse (06/12/13)

    Kagoule kick off their UK tour with a special hometown show, where hundreds cram into a sweaty Lacehouse to witness a gig phenomenon: music in the round. On the back of recent release, ‘Adjust The Way’ – a free single released on Hate Hate Hate Records, Kagoule are embarking...
