INTERVIEW: Matt Kean (Bring Me The Horizon)

By Liam Menzies (@blinkclyro) Bring Me the Horizon may very well be one of, if not the biggest rock band the UK has to offer at the moment. The very definition of a big deal, the Sheffield band has become top tier festival performers. 2015 was undeniably the biggest year for Sheffield band Bring Me The […]

Vistas – Medicine EP REVIEW

By Liam Menzies (@blinkclyro) This year sure has flown by, hasn’t it? It seems like only yesterday I was heaping praise on Edinburgh indie rock/pop outfit Vistas for their single Sign Language, a track that wasn’t afraid to embrace some poppier elements to result in a captivating hook that’s resulted in the chorus being permanently embedded […]

ALBUM REVIEW Danny Brown – Atrocity Exhibition

By Liam Menzies (@blinkclyro) “You ain’t heard it like this before. They don’t do it like this no more” projects a warped sounding Danny Brown on the insanity fuelled When It Rain and he isn’t wrong by any stretch of the imagination. The Detroit rapper has consistently pushed the boundaries of his genre and, much like other […]

DEATH GRIPS @ GLASGOW SWG3 – 14/10/16

By Liam Menzies (@blinkclyro) Well, I can openly admit that I never expected to be writing this review in my lifetime. Not that I’m not a fan of Death Grips (you’ll find it’s quite the opposite due to the repeated presence on my AOTY lists), more so that the experimental hip hop rock band seem […]

By Liam Menzies (@blinkclyro) As bloggers will argue night and day about what is the best programme ever to be aired on television, it’s likely that The Simpsons will be missed out in favour of your Game Of Thrones and Breaking Bad though that shouldn’t be the case.

TOP 5: Scariest Video Games Of All Time

By Liam Menzies (@blinkclyro) While horror films are all well and good at sending shivers down your spine, there’s a certain edge video-games have always had over them: interactivity. When you’re watching a movie and it’s all getting too much, just covering your eyes with your hand is enough to help make you feel somewhat […]

WEE QUICKIE: Slaves – Take Control

While not the worst thing you’ll ever hear, this quickly fired out follow up to the Kent duo’s solid debut does little to reassure those who see the band as a novelty act. By Liam Menzies (@blinkclyro) When Are You Satisfied dropped back in 2015, Slaves found themselves sky-rocketing to fame in such a small frame of […]

Bon Iver – 22, A Million ALBUM REVIEW

An album adorned with cryptic messages both in its songs as well as its artwork, 22, A Million does little to shake off Justin Vernon’s title as being one “of the greatest living artists”. Toning down the acoustic guitar and instrumentals for a greater focus on lo-fi and electro elements leaves us with a career defining record that […]
