The Über Rock Singles Club – Awesome August (Volume One)

Well, with a few exceptions, the pathway out of the dark tunnel that has been the past 16 months finally seems to be getting clearer day by day, as we slowly take those vital steps back to at least a semblance of the normality we enjoyed before the pandemic wrecked chaos on our collective and individual lives. Yes, there are still some restrictions in place in some parts of the Über Kingdom , but the signs are increasingly positive, not least in terms of the summer festival season being up-and-running again, and the light on the horizon is growing ever brighter – and it’s not just ‘cos we’re being blessed with a rare sunny summer!

VIDEO OF THE WEEK – LOVE AND DEATH

As the rays of light at the end of the dark tunnel that has been the past 16 months of isolation and generally being shit upon from great heights growing brighter by the day, and life starting to return to some sense of nomality, a healthy slew of new music, perhaps more than at any other time in ÜR’s history, continues to ping itself our way, and especially in 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.

VIDEO OF THE WEEK – PAINKILLER PARTY

With the rays of light at the end of the dark tunnel that has been the past 16 months of isolation and generally being shit upon from great heights growing brighter by the day, the rock ‘n’ roll year that is 2021 now stands with its DMs firmly planted in the mire and muck of the chaos around it. A healthy slew of new music, perhaps more than at any other time in ÜR’s history, continues to ping itself our way, and especially in 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.

The Über Rock Singles Club – Jubilant July (Volume One)

Well, with a few exceptions, the pathway out of the dark tunnel that has been the past 16 months finally seems to be getting clearer day by day, as we slowly take those vital steps back to at least a semblance of the normality we enjoyed before the pandemic wrecked chaos on our collective and individual lives. Yes, there are still some restrictions in place in many parts of the Über Kingdom (not least in Northern Ireland, where indoor gigs remain band for the foreseeable future), but at least there is light on the horizon – and it’s not just ‘cos we’re being blessed with a rare bright summer!

VIDEO OF THE WEEK – KAT VON D

Despite the rays of light at the end of the dark tunnel that has been the past 16 months of isolation and generally being shit upon from great heights having been somewhat dimmed in the past week, with the announcements that the easing of lockdown restrictions in Northern Ireland will not include the return of live gigs, and England not fully free for at least another fortnight, the rock ‘n’ roll year that is 2021 has somehow crept, crawled and sneaked closer into its second half, with its DMs firmly planted in the mire and muck of the chaos around it. A healthy slew of new music, perhaps more than at any other time in ÜR’s history, continues to ping itself our way, and especially in 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.

VIDEO OF THE WEEK – THE HEARTLAND COLLECTIVE

Despite the rays of light at the end of the dark tunnel that has been the past 16 months of isolation and generally being shit upon from great heights having been somewhat dimmed in the past week, with the annnouncements that the easing of lockdown restrictions in some parts of the ÜK had been postponed by between two weeks (in Northern Ireland) and a month (in England), 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. A healthy slew of new music, perhaps more than at any other time in ÜR’s history, continues to ping itself our way, and especially in 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.

For the Greater Good! My Time As A Festival Guinea Pig

For centuries, people have laid their bodies on the line to protect something that they strongly believe in and Jonny B has often wondered what he would do if that call ever came to him. And then a few weeks ago, it happened. There was a chance to help secure the future of live music events through a small trial festival with no restrictions – the Download Pilot. Naturally, JB jumped at the chance, bought his ticket and tried to remember how to festival again after what seems like an absolute eternity since the 2019 festival season!

The Uber Rock Singles Club – Joyous June

Despite the rays of light at the end of the dark tunnel that has been the past 16 months of isolation and generally being shit upon from great heights having been somewhat dimmed in the past week, with the annnouncements that the easing of lockdown restrictions in some parts of the ÜK had been postponed by between two weeks (in Northern Ireland) and a month (in England), the vaccination programme continues to be rolled out with increasing pace, trial live events such as this weekend’s Download Pilot taking place and the remaining roadmaps seem to actually present some form of direction and pathway back to at least a semblance of the normality we enjoyed before the pandemic wrecked chaos on our collective and individual lives.

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.
