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.

The Über Rock Singles Club – Mayhem In May (Volume Three)

Well, it looks like the rays of light at the end of the dark tunnel that has been the past 13 months of isolation and generally being shit upon from great heights may be growing brighter day by day, with the vaccination programme being rolled out with increasing pace, trial live events taking place and the various roadmaps seeming 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.

Über Rock Introduces… Kath And The Kicks

Leeds alt-rock trio Kath And The Kicks have just declared that they are very much alive and, erm, kicking (sorry, NOT!) with the release, just yesterday, of their fourth single. So, we reckoned it might be a good time to catch up with the band and get under their skin, to find out what makes them tick, the inevitable subject of making music under the strictures of lockdown – and the ever vexed subject of whether or not you should put pineapple on a pizza…

Über Rock Introduces… ForeignWolf

Like so many hundreds, nay thousands, of bands the Überverse over, Belfast upstarts ForeignWolf found themselves faced with a barrier as tall as the Great North Wall when the Covid pan(dem)ic hit last March.
