The Liars Club – ‘Of Self’ (Neoprima Music)

For what is only the second time during his ÜR tenure, Jonny B os fortunate enough to be reviewing a band from his own town’s surprisingly active music scene. Yes, that’s right, the “cul-de-sac of the UK”, Barrow-in-Furness, does indeed have an active and diverse music scene! Last time JB was reviewing some old school death metal, but this time it’s a complete change of pace with the post punk crew The Liars Club who happen to be based above his local record shop - TNT Records (which is where his wages seem to mysteriously disappear…)

Emperor – ‘A Night of Emperial Wrath’ – 23 May 2021

It hardly seems that long ago since Jonny B was sitting in his living room settling down for an evening with Ihsahn to enjoy his most recent solo EPs played in full. But there he was again and it seemed like the weather had turned suitably grim with an eerie chill in the air because he was sitting here to witness Ihsahn in the form that first brought him to the forefront. That’s right, it’s time for some true Norwegin black metal in the form of the absolutely formidable Emperor! With a setlist that promises to span through the back-catalogue and some special guests from some prominent characters in Emperor’s history, there was no way JB could miss this one. So he smothered his face in corpse paint, cracked open a hefty beer (yeah he knows it’s a Sunday but fuck it) and turned out the lights ready for some serious metal from one of the finest bands to come out of the early '90s Norwegian scene.

VIDEOS OF THE WEEK – PAIN/POWERWOLF

As the rays of light at the end of the dark tunnel that has been the past 14 months of isolation and generally being shit upon from great heights grow brighter day by day, the rock ‘n’ roll year that is 2021 has somehow crept, crawled and sneaked closer to its halfway point, with its DMs firmly planted in the mire and muck of the chaos around it, with a healthy slew of new music pinging itself our way, and especially the continuing tsunami of submissions we receive for our coveted ‘Video Of The Week’ award… Yes, as we’ve said on multiple occasions, one constant throughout the vagaries of inconsistent and often hard to stomach lockdowns is the amazing level of adaptive creativity that bands and video directors the length and breadth of the Überverse have continued to show, often in the most adverse of circumstances.
