Eva Plays Dead + Support // Lincoln Imp

This Saturday 21st November you can catch rock band Eva Plays Dead for £5 on the Lincoln Imp stage. Their newest video release has just featured on http://www.kerrang.com.

No-nonsense hard hitters Eva Plays Dead are a British rock band from Nottingham/Derby, UK. Fronted by boss-lady Tiggy Dockerty and her punk tinged vocals. ‘Eva Plays Dead’ blend big riffs, infectious melodies and raucous energy. They have been referred to as the Midland’s Joan Jett and The Black Hearts but EPD take influence from a vast range including Halestorm, Marmozets, Black Flag, Aerosmith, Queens of the Stoneage, LostAlone and Heaven’s Basement to name a few.

KERRANG! – “Monster riffs & powerful vocals.”

ROCKSOUND – “A hard edged rock ‘n’ roll effort. Returning with a greater focus on whopping riffs and melodies.”

METAL HAMMER: “Putting the backbone in blues, this feisty slab of rock’n’roll does a good Halestorm impression while ramping up the tempo with Tiggy Dee’s smash ‘n’ grab act.”

POWERPLAY MAGAZINE: “There are some ferocious riffs to be had here, served up with a hefty dose of snarling attitude from take no prisoners front woman Tiggy Dee. A punchy and gritty slice of modern rock and roll that’s well worth the time of any discerning lover of rock music.”

PUNKTASTIC: “Huge and packed with dark and venomous riffs. Frontwoman Tiggy Dockerty displays her swaggering vocals, laced with plenty of confidence and gusto.”

PLANETMOSH – “4/5. One of the hottest, hard biting rock quartets.”

THE MUSICAL OUTCAST: – “Blasted out at breakneck speed from start to finish this is another slab of hard rock which is impossible to ignore.”

Quick Review // Billy Bibby & Support @ The Lincoln Imp

On Friday evening I attended the newly refurbished gig room at the longest standing home of Live music in Scunthorpe. The Lincoln Imp has always hosted great live music for as long as I can remember but it’s new facelift it is bigger, better and well equipt to put on a show.

I was very impressed initially upon walking into the new gig room, the amount of space and the layout is just brilliant and hardly recognisable to the old gig room. The stage size has been increased and so has the audience’s space with the removal of the old sidebar, which was mostly unused. There is now a brand new bar around the corner from the stage away from the stage view so you don’t have people ordering drinks in your view. If you haven’t been to the Lincoln Imp for a gig since it’s refurb, please do check it out, you will be more than surprised.

This is the first gig I have been to since the refurbishment, although it wasn’t rammed full of people it was still a pleasant evening. I did miss the first support which was Lizzie Goddard but I have seen her a few times and she never disappoints her audience with her stunning voice and strong setlist of songs.


Years Young were the second main support, bringing a more heavy feel with lots of energy to the stage. Years Young are the newly formed band from former vocalist and former bass player from Ameira with two new members Ollie on drums and Danny on guitar. I’d say they have definitely got a bit more of a heavy influence than the more commercial sound they possessed as Ameira but in a way this is good as it means they have come away from what they were doing and are trying something new and finding their band’s sound. The boys have been busy recording at Peak studios and I think you can expect to see a music video very soon to accompany their first release.


wpid-20150731_215910-1.jpgBilly Bibby headlined the show, known as a “former member of Catfish & The Bottlemen”. Just himself and his acoustic guitar took to the stage and he performed some of his own songs and some well known covers throughout the hour.  He is no doubt a talented guitarist making his electro acoustic sound full and some great vocals to match. He seemed rather reserved and shy on stage but it didn’t affect his performance, it was quite endearing really. You can catch Billy touring around the UK at a venue near you.

(EX-Catfish & the Bottlemen)

“Made in Lancashire and raised in the Welsh seaside resort of Llandudno.

Billy Bibby’s voice has all the traditions of a Lancashire hotpot churned together with the excitement of a trip to the beach. Possessing powerful melodic pipes and a set of songs to match. Bibby prides himself on making those records that everyday people will understand and resonate with. Influences from such greats as Elvis Presley, Noel Gallagher and Mark Knopfler most prominent but not defining on his singing and song writing style. Previous work consists of being one of the founding members of hugely popular Catfish and the Bottlemen.

Having toured extensively with them (Catfish) as lead guitarist over the past 7 years Billy is no stranger to the stage and is now looking to furrow his own way back to where he belongs. A live acoustic act with a bright future.”

Live Music // #Scunthorpe Rock Open Grand Final

Scunthorpe Nights

We attended the 2014 semi finals of Rock Open to see what bands it had on offer. I have been attending The Rock Open now for probably about 12 years at the various venues around Scunthorpe it has been held.

wpid-img_23560587083554.jpegYes I have been disappointed with results, yes I probably have questioned the scoring. But on Saturday 29th November at The Lincoln Imp, Myself and another member of the Scunthorpe Nights team have been invited onto the Grand Final judging panel.

I am looking forward to seeing how it works and scoring the bands on the different abilities they all have.I think it is quite important to support competitions like this even if we don’t always agree with the outcome because every year I have seen some outstanding bands and performances pass through the heats and even if they don’t make it through, you saw them, you enjoyed them and…
