Live Review: Rush @ O2 London, 2013

They close with an unbelievably good version of THE classic ‘Spirit of Radio’, the sound of Rush fans spontaneous combusting across the venue is clearly audible.

Game Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Formed by the team at Treyarch and brought to the world by Activision. BLOPs II as it’s widely known takes us on a journey from 1986 all the way to the future, 2025 to be exact.

Live Review: Feeder @Kasbah, Coventry
