Train @ Eventim Apollo, London (23 October 2017)

I have to start this review with a little bit of a moan.  Barely three songs into Train’s set and a venue usher tapped me on the shoulder and told me I couldn’t take photos with my camera, only with my phone.  Are you freaking kidding me?!  In what bizarre world does that make sense?!  […]

The Script – Freedom Child (2017)

🌟🌟 It has been three months, THREE MONTHS, since I had new music to listen to and September opens with The Script being back on the scene three years after their previous album. I was a big fan of their early stuff but had to actually physically go and look up the tracklisting to see […]

Toploader – Seeing Stars (2017)

🌟🌟🌟 I have a lot of time for Toploader. I am quite disappointed that whenever you mention their name, everyone goes “oh the band that did Dancing In The Moonlight.  Well, actually the band that Dancing In The Moonlight belongs to is King Crimson and Toploader did a very good, very successful cover of that […]

Train – A Girl A Bottle A Boat (2017)

🌟🌟½ I am a big big fan of Train. Let’s circle back to 2004 and the soundtrack to SpiderMan 2.  Nope not the Tom Holland Spiderman.  Nope not the Andrew Garfield Spiderman but the Topher Grace one.  It was around this time that I started getting into music and liked Ordinary by Train on the […]

There is nothing he doesn’t do well, whether that be songwriting, singing, whistling, guitar-playing or general performing and that is why I decided to go and see him in concert twice in four months. The venue was different (November was the gig-friendly Eventim Apollo at Hammersmith whilst this time […]

Jack Savoretti – When We Were Lovers (35/52)

Definitely one of my favourite underrated artists.  I booked a ticket to see him in concert in November before I even realised he was releasing a new album this year. Amazing first song from the album; can’t wait to hear the rest.
