SkunkAnansie Do you ever get that feeling that you've just been a part of something really special, something really relevant? Saturday night, Brixton Academy, Skunk Anansie felt exactly like that. And judging by the crowd, it felt like that for 1000's of others too. 'Fascism..stop it DEAD in its track!' Skin's words resonate through me days later. Skunk Anansie have always been a special band, always pushing the boundaries and breaking barriers; they smashed it back in the early days, and they still smash it in 2017.

Fields of the Nephilim So to the main event, Fields of the Nephilim, The Nephilim, The Neff, Carl McCoy. I first saw them back in 1987 in some tiny polytechnic, and came out covered in flour, ringing ears but with complete love. They rarely tour these days, no, correction, they never tour and rarely play, in England we’re lucky to get two of three gigs a year and I had high hopes tonight. I wasn’t disappointed.

Kula Shaker How times flies. It's been 20 years since these guys brought their brand of psychedelic pop rock to the airwaves, on the crest of the Brit-pop wave, one of the more eccentric and somewhat mystical of the bands of the time. A raft of top #10 hits and a #1 album - Kula Shaker an in town tonight - to celebrate those twenty years ago when that album 'K' was riding high.

James I was particularly looking forward to this one. James have always been a band I’ve admired but one I’ve never really got to know better. The last time I saw them Adamski was Number One which shows just how lax I’ve been and it was high time I found out how the band had matured. (More than me I was to find out).

Richard Hawley There couldn’t be a more befitting end to an 18-month long tour for Richard Hawley and his band than to play Sheffield’s City Hall. Sheffield’s much beloved son enthralled a sell-out crowd of dedicated fans, with a mixture of new songs dedicated to his children and well-known hits. Selling his own brand of Hendo’s (a local delicacy), it was clear that Richard Hawley was at home.

Bullet For My Valentine 10 years has passed since Bullet For My Valentine hit the scene, headlining the Kerrang! Tour and it just so happened they are playing the very same venue again tonight. Alongside that they released their first full release 'The Poison', although tonight's show isn't about that there is definitely a sense of nostalgia with fans new and old in attendance.
