The Ocean – Phanezoroic I/Phanozeric II – 26 November 2021 (live streams)

Anyone who’s spent any reasonable amount of time in Jase W’s general vicinity will know that he is a huge fan of The Ocean, a truly interesting band hailing from Berlin, Germany, known for their extended length songs across several albums, each with their own narrative. So, imagine his surprise when he got an email dropped into his inbox asking if he wanted to review their ‘Phanerozoic’ live stream; there was not a chance in hell he’d pass up the chance to sit and listen to The Ocean for nearly two hours and gush about it…

Horns – ‘Horns’ (Self-Released)

What exactly do you get when you meld together the genres of jazz and metal? What really happens when Sinatra meets Satan? The answer to that question, friends, is Horns, the brilliant new project from the extraordinary mind of pianist and composer Simon Fache.

Tonight’s show is the last of the ten dates of the UK leg of the tour, the second of two nights at the Hammersmith Apollo, and one that is being live streamed via the band’s website.

Punk Rock Factory – Glasgow, The Cathouse – 27 November 2021

Jonny B distinctly remembers one of his friends coming up to him at Bloodstock absolutely buzzing with excitement to tell our man that he’d just seen a band cover the ‘Fun House’ theme tune. Shortly afterwards, JB started to see more and more people raving about this last-minute addition to the Bloodstock line-up and he suddenly regretted not crawling out of his van in time to check them out. It’s okay though, because he managed to convince the boss, in a rare moment of weakness, to put him down to go see Punk Rock Factory in Glasgow, even though they are “only” a cover band…
