One of the last surviving totally independent rock venues, Hull's Adelphi Club saw yet another first-rate rock
night, and I was there to witness the show.
Jet Plane Landing, a distinct, punk rock four-piece were top of the bill with support from the enthused and
highly enjoyable Harvey Half Devoured and immense local talent Break Even.
This isn't the first time I've seen Break Even and it won't be the last.
They gave a quality set, performing their catchy fan favourite, Risky Business and the energetic
Scream of the Day, which really went down well.
They are an innovative new garage rock band playing a greatly original style of music that is both melodic and raw.
Upholding a solid amount of substance, it is evident that the four hold hard work central to their production values.
With their fantastically unique and electric sound, I think this band might actually conquer the world!
Harvey Half Devoured, three ladies and a little man, with a stage presence all of their own, put on a
With a vocal flair similar to that of The Cranberries and a sound comparable to the likes of
Incubus Harvey Half Devoured proved to be more than just girlie rock.
This was the first time I even heard Jet Plane Landing and they were..awesome.
They clearly had incredible stage energy and gave one of the best live shows I've seen for a long while.
I was very impressed. They did a great set and really gave the crowd something for their money.
Not to mention, extremely capable on the ol'guitars. Lead guitarist Cahir was absolutely amazing to watch.
Encore. And they did.
The crowd were lovin' it. Altogether, it was yet another grand night out at The New Adelphi Club, Hull.
Music Reviews - Rides The Bus CD Release Night at Bivouac, Duke Of Wellington, Lincoln with Mad Crowd Disease, Negative IQ, Neon Child - 23rd April 04 By Steve Jones
Unfortunately I missed the first band, Neon Child, although I heard that they went down well especially as
they are relatively new to playing live.
The second band up was Negative IQ. These boys were starting to build up a following round the Lincoln area
last year before they skedaddled off to Leicester Uni and other
Music Reviews - One Lick Less, Park & Ride, Sidewinder at The New Adelphi Club, Hull Saturday 8th May 04 By Douglas Colvin
This Saturday night saw Hull's Adelphi club doing what it does best. On stage were three local bands playing different styles of music to a decidedly mixed audience of friends, fans and curious passers by.
On stage first were One Lick Less, three guys playing an unusual brand of Rock 'n' Roll. In an abrupt five song set, they managed to

Saturday Night Was More Than Alright - Sidewinder , Park&Ride, Onelickless at The Adelphi - Saturday 8th May 04 By Paul Monkman
The Adelphi Club on DeGrey Street has witnessed hundreds and thousands of the city's best bands play
over the years but rarely are three performances of such a high standard as the ones which entertained the crowd
on Saturday night.
Onelickless opened proceedings with half-an-hour of genuine rock and proved to be the perfect warm-up
Music Reviews - Smash it Up! Dead or American, Windum Earl, The Favours, Minions of Jeffrey At the Adelphi, Hull Thursday 6th May 2004 By Dick Spring
Well, on the face of it, it looked like a somewhat strange billing, but the bringing together of these different strands
of punk rock, two of which were from Hull, and though widely regarded as indie they contained ample loudness and blariness to qualify for the tag.
Openers Minions of Jeffrey, appeared to have more people on stage than
Music Reviews - The Freddy James Band at The Tap and Spile, Spring Bank 3rd Sunday of every month By Elsie Creek
The Freddy James Band is traditional, old-school live blues playing at its finest. They like to consider their music as a variation on an old theme, changing rhythms and riffs to add interest to what is essentially a very simple format.
You can see the restraint it takes the Tap's patrons not to get up
Music Reviews - harriwattsband & Friends at Blue Lamp - Wednesday 31st March 03 By Elsie Creek
The Lamp is a great venue, in a good location. There always seems to be something going on there, be it music or madness, so it's no surprise that some patrons never seem to leave. I don't make it to as many of the events as I would like, but this was one I felt compelled to attend, despite the
Music Reviews - The Displacements at the Polar Bear By Steve Rudd
Three bands were on for what was the Polar Bear's first ever Melodic Punk/Grunge/Ska type night.
A fairly large crowd saw all girl band Black Orchid, Green Ginger and headliners Displacements all contributing to an extremely successful night.
So successful that the organiser said that despite it
Winnebago Deal, Killer of Saints and Brassik Lynt At Full Metal Jacket, The Asylum, Hull Student Union - 30th April 04 By Adam Kilsby (Full Galleries).
Friday 30th April saw Asylum's monthly rock night, Full Metal Jacket, ending its most successful year in style.
As well as the usual musical mayhem that can be found on the night, as a special treat the organisers laid on three bands.
First up were Brassik Lynt. Due to the early stage time Asylum was still
