Music Reviews - Thursday 25th May 06 - The Beautiful South at The City Hall with support from Aberfeldy By Michelle Dee Photographs by Matt Rudd
Yesterday was a very special day. Around five o'clock on Thursday evening, I was listening to
The Beautiful South sound check.
The hall was a hive of activity with technicians climbing rope ladders to the gantries,
erecting barriers at the front of the hall, and making ready for the first TBS gig
at the city centre venue for over 16 years.
I listened to the band running

Music Reviews - 21st April 06 - Chaser at The Bluebell Riverside Restaurant, Driffield By Steve Rudd
Chaser are a well-known band in Driffield, largely due to having been around for
a few years now, and because they are mean purveyors of some truly awesome cover songs.
Driffield, unfortunately, is pretty thin on the ground when it comes to great bands worth
shouting about. Since the main venue in town,
Mavericks nightclub, didn't renew its entertainments license,
Music Reviews - Tuesday 2nd May 06 - The Sesh With Ivy Sins, Cherry Cob Cartel and The Blueslide Circle By Michelle Dee
This weeks Sesh night down the Linnet and Lark fell just after yet another bank holiday weekend. This meant that many regulars were spent up or still feeling the effects of partying till the wee small hours. I know my own weekend was full of drunken forays into various different pubs in the Avenues area.
The highlight of my weekend was on Sunday night; yes the Sunday Sesh had
Music Reviews - Wednesday 5th April 06 - John Copley, Afterglow and Sidewinder at Quayside By Emily
This relatively new night has been running at the Quayside for just over a month now- named
Quintessential Sessions- with live bands and fine Indie tunes every week.
However, this gig showed the best turn-out so far.
Regardless of whether this was due to the bands individual followings or simply word of mouth,
it still proved that this night
Music Reviews - Wednesday 19th April 06 - The Peasants, The Blackouts and The Landaus at Quayside Quintessential Sessions By Michelle Dee
It was only a week ago when I met The Peasants for the first time but I had heard them
being played by Alan on Raw Talent a month or two back.
Also Steve Rudd had reviewed their CD on this site and as
often happens round these parts I had been bumping into Jody, singer for
The Peasants, regularly on the Avenues.
Tonight, I was determined to see them.
Music Reviews - Wednesday 5th April 06 - Heat 10, Best Original Band at The Springhead By Anita Blakeston
Heat Ten - The one with Violets and Right Handed Trousers ...
Intriguing band names was the order of the night. I have met the 59 Violets many times and always wanted to know where the name came from.
I don't know Franks Right Hand Trouser but in their case I dare not ask ... something to do with trying to get dressed when drunk?
Tonik have been
Music Reviews - Wednesday 29nd March 06 - Heat 9, Best Original Band at The Springhead By Anita Blakeston
Heat Nine - Turn left at Spaghetti Junction for Hollywood town ...
Tinsel Town it ain't in Hull but I reckon our entertainment is just as glam and glossy as theirs.
We had our very own A listers performing - our very own Brad Pitt alias David Elf, our very
own Danii Minogue on bass and Meg Ryan on keyboards....not to mention Magnum PI as MC.
Music Reviews - Tuesday 25th April - Swellbellys, Assert, C-Squat and Undefeated at The Ringside By Dick Spring Photo Gallery By Mo
When it rains it pours, as the saying goes, and this was very much true of Hull this
evening, with big shows on at pretty much every proper Hull venue.
Ringside weighed in with a heavyweight punk show, literally, with the monster that
is a Swellbellys and Assert tour, their first together in over three years.
Kicking off tonight's proceedings rather early, it has to be said, were
Music Reviews - Wednesday 12th April 06 - Tarifa at Quayside Quintessential Sessions By Michelle Dee
I have known of Tarifa since they opened the
Renegade Writers Live Event at Ringside last year.
Since then they have been hard at work practicing, writing and strengthening
the ties within the band.
Tarifa recently played at Music Man but tonight was the first
time I'd seen them since last year.
After a delayed start (they didn't take
Music Reviews - Sunday Sesh 2nd April By Michelle Dee
To kick things off we had a few numbers from Mr. Baggott.
He started with a new one I didn't catch the title then his usual Blur cover.
The popular Turismo tune Skegness came next which went down well with the knowledgeable crowd.
One person I think it was Rich Turismo was even heard to exclaim Amazing.
He finished off with In BedRead more...
Music Reviews - Wednesday 22nd March 06 - Heat 8, Best Original Band at The Springhead By Anita Blakeston
Heat Eight - Sheriff Check, scenes from the exorcist and can't wait to be famous so
I can get a guitar tech Callum Blackout!
First on stage was Dressed for Stealing with lead singer
Check Kilpatrick (great name!) on bass, sporting a smart full-western-jacket and tie.
Looking like the sheriff who meant business he charmed his
Music Reviews - Wednesday 15th March 06 - Heat 7, Best Original Band at The Springhead By Anita Blakeston
Heat Seven - Girls will be girls ...
The night where Mr. Blake has, thankfully, recovered from his 'flu and is back on sarcasm and shirts.
Good to see and hear, but beware the faint hearted.
He never did tell us the Everly Brothers tale, by the way.
Also a night for mysterious goings-on with the bands....two girls from Quick!
went out shopping and never
Music Reviews - Mak's Birthday Sunday Sesh 2006 By Chu Nin
Just come home from a top night at Sunday Sesh at Linnet and Lark pub.
Unbeknownst to me DJ Mak decided to have a birthday (another one?).
There were at least eighty to a hundred people in, maybe more.
I walked in and caught the last of Matt Edible's set.
I have experienced the intensity of his music before, songs that combine beautiful
