Band Review:Get Down With Dirty Sterling

1234306_10205350527112035_7537157003814695560_nIndie rock’n’roller’s Dirty Sterling are without a doubt one of the most popular local bands in the area. Why? Well people just know their songs and they get the crowd going. Music with attitude and some encouraging stage banter to the audience.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen an audience stand still to Sterling and this Saturday was no exception, they headlined a local gig to a packed out venue. They were set to appear at a new venue called Cafe INDIEpendent unfortunately the venue wasn’t ready due to it being completely renovated by volunteers and young people but with a last minute venue swop to a large bar down the road the night went smooth and the capacity went up.

New Release: FAKE CLUB Debut Album ‘FUCKABLE’

Backseat Mafia

unnamed (1)

Clearly by the name of the album this won’t be one for the kid’s collection but never the less FAKE CLUB boast a genre-defying ethos, sound and line-up that transcends them into a realm of their very own.

Who is FAKE CLUB? 

They are a London girl guitar band who don’t really like to be categorised as GIRL BAND but the members are female, the debut album, FUCKABLE’, is set to release on March 24th.

The Songs..

‘Do What You Got To Do’ sets the tone emphatically with a heavy groove and riff. ‘Do It Like Me’ and ‘Generation’ are songs to walk the streets & grow up to while ‘Midnight At Koko’ shows off the band’s delicate attention to melody that can sometimes get overlooked.

The have supported artist Kate Nash.  Also the band made their silver screen debut in December appearing in the Vertigo Films release, Powder…

Gay marriage at the Grammy awards!!!

Scunthorpe & N Lincs LGBTQ

Did anyone see the Grammy awards the other night?

I did as I’m a huge geek and watch all the award shows that I possibly can, anyway back to the point, 34 couples where officially married on stage by queen Latifa and many of those where gay couples. The couples where married in the middle of a song by Macklemore about equality

As you can imagine this sparked outrage and the American papers haven’t stopped going on about it since, so it’s ok for miley to twirk on some guy on live tv but god forbid the gays go on telly, haha

I did personally find it a bit bizzare but not because they where gay couples just because the thought of getting married in the middle of a Grammy awards ceremony is just a bit strange but everyone has different ways to get their kicks I suppose

If you…

New Music: Coeds “Sensitive Boys”

Our review of COEDS new track

Backseat Mafia

co

Before being asked to review the new track from the Coeds, I had never heard of them, which I suppose is the case in most reviews but this track and duo are very likeable. I was really impressed with the song itself, falling directly into what you might identify as electro pop. Coeds are made up from members Merideth Muñoz & Ryan Kailath and they come from Austin, TX / New York, NY.

They started writing songs in the Summer of 2013 after a three-year haitus (the pair are old friends). While Ryan was in town for a visit, they laid down ‘Sensitive Boys’ just for fun in very little time, and were pleasantly surprised by what they heard. So much so, they continued to collaborate online, despite the distance between the two, and they released their first single in January 2014.

It’s certainly a good job Ryan visited because this track does…
