Blinding gig in an intimate local venue.
We enjoy a Hophead from Brewsters Brewery
I can’t resist a tap takeover
“If you’re here to see my vagina, you’re at the wrong show”
Cheap stuff ain’t good, and good stuff ain’t cheap.
Five goths walk into a bar, and only one of them was drinking cider.
Thoroughly enjoyable and well worth a tenner of anyone’s money
Ho. Lee. Crap.
They generated a mosh pit the instant they started playing.
Let’s hope it continues
"I ate a dinner of four olives"
I thought I’d take my raging hangover to a metal gig. Only one of us was going to leave alive.
Wanna to go to the pub tonight?
No ordinary performance.
We tried Mosaic City
Therapy? return to The Waterfront in support of their 14th album Disquiet.
Placebo stay fresh at UEA
For all their efforts to sound like the noise of the future, Atari Teenage Riot just end up sounding like a dated noise.
In short it’s great. Not in a typical Manson, media-provoking comment-on-the-world kind of way, but in a decent album kind of way.
There was an energy and effervescence on stage that I've not witnessed at previous shows.
As if October could get any more spooky...
The meat dress-wearing popstrel returns with an album of classic duets with old school crooner Tony Bennett. Not your usual Gaga.
There's enough punk attitude in this album to, well, win a 'who's the most punk?' contest.
Hypnotic Eye is an album with plenty of American soul, the kind of music classics are made from.
It may be small, but this perfectly formed mini-album has substance.
The Hunting Party is ostensibly a return to Hybrid Theory, a statement to current rock bands trying to ‘play it safe’. Their debut was a punch in the gut for rock music. This? Not so much.
Gary Numan is a regular visitor to our Fine City, but on this occasion he played the Waterfront rather than the UEA as he has done previously. The more intimate venue made for overpowering set, with Numan so close you could see the smudges of his eyeliner
When a band has been together for twenty years it can be tough to retain what fans like about the music without merely rehashing the last album. Italy's Lacuna Coil are in danger of falling into this trap with latest album Broken Crown Halo.
To some ‘emo’ may be a dirty word, but not to these guys. After celebrating fifteen years together in 2011, Alkaline Trio returned to The Waterfront to an almost sold out show.
What I mistakenly took for rockabilly gals jumping on a bandwagon, turned out to be dedicated musicians with history in both types of music. Country and Western.
The picture it paints is of a band destined to implode almost from the beginning, due to personality clashes, the pressure of success and opposing ideas of what The Clash should be.
Skindred are one of those bands who refuse to be pigeonholed and their fifth album is no different. More polished and produced than previous releases, 'Kill The Power' is still full of their signature rasta-metal stylings.
I don't like bats and I don't like the idea of falling off high buildings while I’m playing the drums! - Lenore interviews Skindred's Arya.
Norwich is fast becoming known for its cabaret scene and on Friday night saw the emergence of a promising new event. Vaudeville group Gossamer Thread brought quality performance and genuine entertainment to an often overtired (and over-tried) genre.
Imelda May was the main attraction at November's Bo Nanafana, and the Fine City's biggest swing night did not let her down - the Queen of rockabilly had top billing at Open for the hottest (vintage) ticket in town.
The pioneers of stoner-rock have returned to reclaim the beard-and-mirror-shades look from ZZ Top. Dave Wyndorf and his crew are back with 'Last Patrol', Monster Magnet's tenth studio release, comprising nine tracks of classic material.
'Masks' is a mix of melodic female vocals and, for the first time, male metal screaming. Eyes Set To Kills riffs are heavy, the drums thundering, the vocals strong.

'Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor' sounds like some random, tripped-out 1960's vinyl.
Tonight's gig at Epic was a celebration of home-grown talent.
The whole band looked like a bunch of mohicaned reprobates who'd lost a fight with a group of rampaging B-movie zombies. With fake blood dripping from their 'wounds' the band tore through classic tunes with the precision of seasoned pros.
Their newest album, 'A Map Of All Our Failures', is typical of the Yorkshire group's material - solemn, epic and heavily layered - a perfect example of what 'doom metal' should be.
"Haha! What a fun date I must be! Fucking hell, how I ever got married I don't know!" - Gary Numan talks about his idiosyncrasies with Outline's Lenore...
The idea behind 'The Revival Tour' is to bring back the old school, a small town show where the line-up is fluid and the feeling is almost communal...
Lenore caught psychobilly pioneers The Meteors live at The Waterfront and got a little more attitude and less music than expected.
