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.

GIG ALERT // BILLY BIBBY (EX-Catfish & the Bottlemen) // Lincoln Imp

XPLOSIV! Promotions

(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.”

Frankie & The Heartstrings

North East indie five-piece, led by former Sunderland pub landlord Frankie Francis, who formed over a mutual love of the Housemartins and the Smiths. Think of these classic bands, combined with influences ranging from Orange Juice to Dexys Midnight Runners, Bobby Conn and Billy Childish, then add the Sunderland accents of the Futureheads or Maximo Park. Finally, complete with a hair quiff modelled on James Dean, some quivering hips and a gyrating bottom, and you’ve got The Heartstrings.

Live Review // Skarlett Riot – “We Are The Brave” Launch

wpid-20150213_215250.jpgA bit of a busy night last Friday first stop was Plowright and then a hop, skip & jump to The Lincoln Imp to make it in time for local rising rock stars Skarlett Riot to take to the stage.

Upon my arrival the audience were spilling out the double doors into the corridor just because of the shear volume of fans local and out of town. Skarlett Riot rarely play the Scunthorpe gig scene and if they do then you will usually find them at The Lincoln Imp, why? well probably because it has a great light & sound set up and it’s a good place to have a mosh.

As usual the band managed to gather a crowd right up to the barriers, with lots of enthusiastic head banging and jumping about.The band powered through tracks new and old, with fan classics like Tear Me down and Rock and Roll queen along with obviously the new EP tracks.

There’s not really much need to talk about their music as you can listen for yourself but this band really has the full package from the style, vocals, melodic anthems right down to the almost theatrical Alt rock performance they put on for their fans. The female Skarlett’s range is impressive and powerful, backed up by the boys to compliment the sound and push it that bit further. Skarlett Riot still remain to be one of the best local live band performances I have witness and believe me I have witnessed quite a lot.

The energy and atmosphere they stir up in a room leads to a great gig experience even for someone that maybe wouldn’t usually listen to alternative music.Their tunes are infectious and stay with you even after you have left with your ears ringing and sweat dripping down your forehead.

Skarlett Riots new EP and merch is now available via Itunes & amazon!

untitled Check out their latest video release on Youtube. The band regularly get airplay on BBC Introducing/Kerrang radio and video play requested on Scuzz TV. Kerrang has also just rated and reviewed their new EP so check that out.
