New Cinema Release: American Hustle

Backseat Mafia

Wow I’ll be completely honest in this review how this film won awards I have no idea, maybe I am just not the right demographic, it was slow, boring and quite uneventful even much so that I could barely stay awake. It was a struggle to say the least.

Don’t get me wrong some good actors in the movie but it took a very long time for anything remotely interesting to happen. It dragged out which I suppose maybe a good thing for some people as it does give a very long look back in time into character history together.

I would tell you what it was about but to fair, I don’t really know as it was so pointless but it’s a fictional film telling the story of a con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams)…

New Video: The Starkins “Roundabout”

South Yorkshire Band – The Starkins

Backseat Mafia


This new video comes from a bunch of young lads from South Yorkshire. The video is upbeat whilst being quite simple and features an everyday scenario of a group of friends at the fun fair. The band is a Four piece indie/ guitar-pop band comprising of members:

Vocals- Andy Daniels (Winnie)
Guitar – Matt Elliss
Bass – Will Campbell
Drums – Joe Elliss

What I like about the video and sound of these lads is the fact the vocals have that hint of yorkshire accent. The music ska feel about it, very jump around and dance.

In the video it follows the band at the funfair on all the rides and having a good time with shots also filmed in a room with the band playing, this format seems to be popular with scene shots and then band in performance shots. The video works well for this song in particular because its energetic…

House Music

Backseat Mafia

Bambook 2
This new track comes from Swedish duo Bambook, and includes the original and the remix which includes Chaim, Alex Nagshineh, and Silky & Jonny Cruz’s disCerN and is brought to you by Faceless Recordings.

Bambook is the alter ego of Swedish producers Eiad Sayegh and Hannes Netzell. For this track they join Faceless Recordings roster, following output on the label from Climbers, Jon Charnis, Balcazar & Sordo, and Directors Cut (Frankie Knuckles & Eric Kupper).

“Kicking off proceedings is the original mix of ‘Give It Up’, a tripped-out, peak-time workout fuelled by a gritty saw wave bass hook, sweeping rhythms and smooth, blossoming pad lines. The duo ride this groove out for just over six and a half minutes, with smooth vocal hints cropping up in between the silky waves of electronic.”

Although maybe not the strongest of vocals, it is definitely a chill out and relax track. Easy listening…

Scunthorpe Independent News


The venue is still undergoing a lot of hard work to get it near ready for opening. The first event will be held down in the basement of the building. If you remember the building as SOHO then down the steps to where Cram computers used to be situated. This is a great building with interesting levels. Which is why it will make a perfect and interesting venue and stand out from the ordinary standard you would usually categorise Cafe under.
