Live Review: Dolittle, Mr G & Rich

17/12 at the fighting cocks (kingston)

Just like Christmas - Dolittle seem to come but once a year. Well, aside from last year when the weather had a say in the matter


Profile: 12 Dirty Bullets

Formed back in 2007, London-based 12 Dirty Bullets consist of brothers Jamie and Josh Jamieson, Michael smith on lead guitar and drummer, Joe Cotterill. They burst onto the scene with their blend of alternative indy-rock, managing to get themselves noticed in an over-saturated market.


Live/Album Review: The Lemonheads

13/12 at the concorde ii (brighton)

Nineties Nostalgia ... For people of a certain age it can be a truly wonderful thing, revisiting songs branded upon the psyche during more formative and less cynical years.


Two Track Tuesday

Quickly becoming a regular feature here at Gigseen, today we've got not one, but two tracks for you to enjoy on this tiresome Tuesday. The following tracks are songs that we've got on repeat in the office. Humming along without a care in the world.


Live Review: Ellwood, Electric River, My Third Leg

08/12 at the O2 islington academy 2

Once getting past the confusion of being told by the doorman that Electric Six were in fact playing on Thursday night, not Ellwood, then being directed instead after a heart-stopping moment up to the first floor O2 Islington Academy 2 venue, it was extremely easy to enjoy a night of ska-infused music.

Profile: The Holy Roman Army

It's happened again ... Once more I start out intending to write a simple album review and with a little back-catalogue research find myself putting together a full band profile instead ... In this case Ireland's The Holy Roman Army.


Profile: Charles Bradley

The phrase, 'had a hard life', probably doesn't mean too much to most people. Soul and RnB singer, Charles Bradley, certainly knows what it means to have a hard life; spending the majority of his early life on the streets, he's not your average recording artist.


Profile: Penguin Prison

The title, 'New Band Showcase', may not be entirely true this week, but what the hell, I'm going to bend the rules a bit! Anyway, I'm going on the basis that for a lot of you, Penguin Prison is merely a glimmering, undiscovered jewel that lies in the murky depths of the stagnant waters that is the internet music-sphere.
