Live Review: Russian Circles/Earthless @ Underworld, London

Live Review: Russian Circles, Earthless
Venue: Camden Underworld, London
Date: 13/04/10

My dad is with me tonight. There’s got be something to be said for a gig that can attract both a 21 year old student and a near 50 (sorry dad) rocker. I’m not too sure who it reflects on the worst – myself, the old man, or the bands squeezing onto the Underworld’s legendary stage.

Dub Trio

There’s a somewhat lacklustre atmosphere for tonight’s show, probably down to the none-too-encouraging turnout, seemingly put off by the dreadful prospect of another early Monday morning.

Heard It Yet?: Bossk – 1 and 2

Album: 1/2
Label: Qnotq/Eyesofsound
Released: 2006/2007

This is a rather delayed entry to the Heard It Yet catalogue, considering that it was only recently that I was fully introduced to Kent based post rockers Bossk.

Live Review: Pelican & Torche

Gig Review: Pelican and Torche
Venue: The Underworld, Camden
Date: 19th September 2008

I can’t believe this gig never sold out. Pelican, one of Hydra Heads most mesmerizing exports playing alongside one of the most praised new bands to come out on the label, Torche. All this, and they’re playing inside the tiny Underworld, which uncannily resembles the basement level of Guitar Hero II. Absolutely ridiculous if you ask me, but for those who didn’t go, know this – you missed out on one of the loudest, heaviest and most fucking awe-inspiring gigs I’ve seen in a while, and it was all thanks to those glory boys, Torche.
