Looking back at 2014 with… Ill Gotten Gains

We caught up with Basingstoke’s finest ska-punk band Ill Gotten Gains about their 2014. How was 2014 for you? It was amazing. We played loads of great gigs across the country, made loads of new friends and had lots of fun doing it. Never a dull moment. What was the best/most memorable show you played? It’s a […]

Looking back at 2014… with Austeros

Cheltenham’s finest DIY powerpop trio Asuteros have a look back at 2014. How has 2014 been for you? It’s been a good year! Considering it was our first full year as a band, we’ve been quite busy. We released our second EP on Round Dog Records, which is run by Fraser from Murderburgers. Played some […]

Looking Back at 2014… with Dirty Revolution

We look back at 2014 with Dirty Revolution’s wonderful vocalist Reb, discussing their last year ever as a band. How was 2014 for you? 2014 has been emotional; obviously the band ending and working towards a last release has been a bit of a rollercoaster, but I feel like we are going out on a high and […]

Looking back at 2014… with Magpies and Vagabonds

It’s been a big year for Birmingham’s Magpies and Vagabonds! They released their amazing EP Giver earlier in the year, and have just followed it up with new single “Start of a Century”. Dan (vocals/guitar) told us all about his year… How was 2014 for you? I felt myself grow noticeably older and more out of touch […]

Looking back at 2014… Year of the Guerrilla

Max asked if I would write a piece summarising Guerrilla Monsoon‘s 2014. If you know us personally or know anything about the band then you’ll appreciate the year has been productive and hectic in equal measure! The year nearly killed us (literally and metaphorically) and looking back I can’t believe it happened. For those of […]

Community Discussion: Charity and the DIY scene

It’s time for a brand new community discussion. It’s been a week and a half since our last show which was for Nottingham’s Emmanuel House (more on that later…); it was a huge success with 110 tins brought for our collection (seriously), and around £50 raised. Our next show is also a charity one, this […]
