It’s almost the end of January so, after a break over the Christmas and New Year period, here’s our first gig preview post of 2020. Continue reading
Here’s this week’s new music, coming on a Saturday rather than midweek, so we’ve caught all the tracks that just dropped yesterday too, including tunes from the new albums by previous Brighton Rocks subjects Dog in the Snow and Animal House (and a new video from BUNKR too). Anyway, onto the music: Continue reading

We’re playing catchup this week, after a gig preview last week and the Great Escape the week before that there’s a lot of ground to cover. We’ll also be introducing a simplification in how we present the tracks too, so that hopefully we don’t get so behind in future.
For this month’s gig preview post we’re actually going to cover November and December. Generally there aren’t as many gigs in December, and we’re normally distracted with end of year stuff on the blog, so it’s seems appropriate to cover two months in one post now. Continue reading
We don’t do gig previews that much any more, mainly because we don’t get out nearly as much as we used to. We’ve got a big feature coming, but it’s taking a little while to get together, so to tide you over until then, here’s a few gigs that have caught our eye over the coming month:

As they put it: “We’d planned to host an alldayer only to find out that our adversaries had used their telemeters to evil effect.

On the bill are Garden Centre, Academy of the Sun, Gary Goodman and Sam Cutting. Continue reading
