Chris Catalyst – ‘Kaleidoscopes’ (Self-Released)

The name Chris Catalyst should be as familiar to even the most passive of ÜR readers as your favourite pair of underpants – and if it isn’t, then you either don’t wear underpants or have been living in a state of rock ‘n’ roll-starved stasis for the better part of the past decade. After all, he is one of the hardest working men in Yorkshire, popping up more frequently than yer man in those bothersome internet adverts, having been involved at one time or another or in one shape or another with bands such as The Sisters Of Mercy, Ugly Kid Joe, Mariachi El Bronx and Terrorvision, as well as finding time to record and tour with his own band of troubadours, The Eureka Machines… It’s a work ethic he has continued during the various lockdowns, with a seemingly incessant stream of live streams and podcasts to both entertain us in our darkest hours but also convince us to part with thousands of our hard-earned (and, in many cases, dwindling) pounds to aid various charities – and, in between all of this, he’s also found the time to put together this, his inspirational second solo album…

The BIG Über Rock Interview: Sebastian Moederle-Lumb (Them Bloody Kids)

Having lived in the North West for the better part of a decade now, Jonny B is well used to hearing the phrase “them bloody kids” being bandied around and generally it’s referring to the hordes of kids that hang around in places like the park or outside McDonalds. What he didn’t expect is for this particular group of bloody “kids” to be a hard-hitting alt-rock/groove metal trio from down London way…
