Strolling into Bristol’s floating-est venue to promote new record With a Vengeance, the eight-piece seemed to be looking to prove two things: 1. Brass bands can be cool, and 2.

John Grant Promoting the recently released ‘Love is Magic’ album, John Grant is finally undertaking a full tour, taking in both Europe and The States. He did of course tease the UK audience last year with a handful of shows and festival appearances, but it was only on the final dates of 2018 when he unleashed his full ‘Love is Magic’ set, and the Bath show was visually stunning and the first time I’ve known him to use background graphics.

Clare Grogan's Altered Images Time for some 80’s Pop nostalgia and to see how my latter schooldays crush and poster girl Clare Grogan has fared in the 35 years since I last saw her perform live on the Altered Images ‘Pinky Blue’ tour. There are different layers of fandom with our Clare, for men of a certain age it was the quintessential girl next door charm shown in Gregory’s Girl, for others Dave Lister’s unrequited love interest Kristine Kochanski in Red Dwarf, maybe even singer Niamh Connolly in one episode of Father Ted. None of that is anything to do with a post punk pop songstress, but there is nothing but strong and loyal affection shown for this Glasgow girl.

Azealia Banks Azealia Banks is the queen. For me, she’s the modern-day version of Betty Davis, the free spirit that inspired Miles Davis. Young and wild, nasty (in a nice way), playful and sultry - and more than anything, she’s absolutely unbeatable on stage. Whether she’s spitting fire over the nastiest of beats, singing over massive club bangers or playfully crooning over a trippy jazz beat she sounds incredible.
