Ever since it was announced in late 2011 amidst the overblown BF3 and COD: MW3 spat (that made it all look like a nonsensical playground fight), the buzz around Rockstar’s next offering hasn’t really come close to subsiding. And with the September 17th release date (as it stands) only getting >>
22nd April 2013
The two initially bonded over British Post-Punk bands from the 80s but ‘Brightest Darkest Day’ draws from a whole wealth of influences beyond that. It isn’t an album to throw a capital of unexpected surprises in your face, but it is eleven songs of solid, dark and grimy song-writing.

Darwin & The Dinosaur are, apart from being one of the most fabulously titled bands ever are a five piece outfit from Flush The Fashion's very own hometown of Norwich. With 3 releases already behind them ‘Romulus’ is their latest offering.

So is '20/20' any good? Well it’s classy, there’s no doubt about that. It’s probably what’s to be expected from a 32 year old high roller rarely seen in anything but a ‘Suit & Tie’ these days. A look he wears so well he wrote a song about it, accompanied with a video directed by the >>

Portugal. The Man, Lewis Watson, Vuvuvultures and Ghostpoet. Matthew Copper takes a sniff at some new tracks on the way.

Have had lots of new music lately to listen to, so I thought I'd let you know about some of my favourites.

2011's superbly named debut ‘Last Smoke Before the Snow Storm’, despite being caught up in the Ben Howard and Ed Sheeran undercurrent was also a solid effort. His live shows sell out, and there are few contemporaries as comfortable on stage with just one guitar and their own vocals.

Matthew Copper heads to The Sugarmill in Stoke to check out two excellent bands on the way up.
2nd November 2012
New Music Round-Up from Matthew Cooper Age of Reason EP & Idle Revival- High Times for Stationed Minds two new acts worth a listen.
16th October 2012
Matthew Cooper takes a quick look at a couple of acts coming up on the radar next month. Sam Willis – Foxglissandro Now early studies show that Sam isn’t related to Bruce, but we can let that slide because the sounds he produces on Foxglissandro are bliss. Just because it is >>

New album, aptly titled ‘Four’ was a very big deal for me and thousands of other like-minded ‘Bloc heads’ (that is what I am calling them).
6th July 2012
It sounds like Linkin Park have been listening to a bit of Skrillex, as electronic grid beats have largely replaced the soaring guitar lines heard rife throughout 2007's Minutes to Midnight.
26th June 2012
Five albums into a fairly niche career it is perhaps surprising Hot Chip aren't bored of it all by now; it is not like they are on top of the world or the biggest band in the country. Maybe they just prefer it that way?
