Dark Sky Burial – Camden, The Underworld – 12 September 2021

One glimmer of hope when the whole world went to shit was the increase in the number of online live streams. While things are a little bit more normal and venues can open their doors once more, there are some bands who opt to run a live stream of their physical gigs which is dead handy when you’re a bit far removed from the venue. And it’s because of this that Jonny B was able to catch the first ever live performance for Dark Sky Burial, the new industrial project from Napalm Death’s Shane Embury, at The Underworld in Camden from the relative comfort of his Northern Fortress of Solitude (patent pending).

Slam Dunk South – Hatfield – 5 September 2021

The summer hasn’t quite left us yet, Jonny B mused, as he made his way down to Hatfield in glorious sunshine for one of the last events of the summer season, Slam Dunk Festival. Although JB has pretty extensively covered the festival circuit over the years, it was his first time at Slam Dunk so he was pretty excited to get down there and see what the hype was all about. Having meticulously studied the lineup in the run up to the event, he knew he was going to be in trouble as this year was clash central with several of the bands he wanted to see overlapping each other. So he was going to have to face the question of should he stay or should he go at several points throughout the day. But regardless, he set off through those gates with the sun blaring overhead to get his fix of punk, ska and heavy shit…
