Gene_Wemb_Thmb"You wanted the best, you got the best." At least that's what Tazz Stander appears to think as she experiences the final 'full on' night of the band's recent UK Tour as part of their ongoing 'Sonic Boom Over Europe' extravaganza.

the_guns_thmbOver the last decade or so South Wales really has been a hotbed for musical talent, producing some truly great bands along the way. We asked Rob Watkins to check out two of the new breed, along with a band from Hampshire at an all-new venue in the birthplace of Nye Bevan's country-changing politics.... oh how topical.

nydthumbLike New York Dolls need an introduction. Fraser Munro danced like a monkey into the only UK date of a brief European tour by the legendary act at Koko in London and witnessed a good performance from the band......but was it good enough?

Generation_Graveyard_thmbGeneration Graveyard list The Dead Boys and GG Allin amongst their influences, so of course we're immediately interested in them, and what better way to sample them than in the raw, up close and sweaty, in a packed out club.  Tazz Stander picks up the pieces at the scene of one Über Röcker's broken dreams.

monroethumbIt might only be April but we are all pretty much convinced that we saw the gig of the year in London last week. Michael Monroe's new band threatened to be awesome but, guess what, they were better than that. Dom Daley was given the task of getting all the greatness down in word form and he just about manages it!

eurekamachinesthmAfter checking out the new Cardiff City Stadium for his mates the 'phonics, Dom Daley entered the Twilight Zone, aka The Garage in Swansea, to see one of our favourite UK bands, Eureka Machines. Could technical difficulties and slappers put a dampener on the night's power popping?

Biffy_ThmbBiffy Clyro may not be every Über Röcker's cup of 'progressive rock' flavoured tea, but the Ayrshire trio must be doing something right, as their seemingly limitless rise to arena rock headliners continues apace in 2010. We asked Ian B to check out Scotland's answer to Rush before they hit the enormodomes later this year.

1arickythumb"Pontypool changes everything" wrote Tony Burgess and, over two decades ago, I would have had to agree. How did a small town gig by Ricky Warwick bring back memories of infamous snow on the roof, metal-fused teen rebellion and avian excrement? Read on to find out....

jaypepperTigertailz return to their roots with a Cardiff club gig in aid of the Amser Justin Time charity, formed by the wife of the legendary Pepsi Tate.

JJ_thmbHow many great gigs can you squeeze into seven days? Johnny H desperately tries to break his own record as hot on the heels of Michael Monroe's debut UK blow out, he catches Jim Jones Revue's first ever Welsh date...So what's all this about a stewards enquiry at ÜRHQ? Jesus guys, it's only Rock 'N' Roll after all.

005tangerinedream1thmbYou try writing an intro paragraph for a band that has spent more than 43 years shaping and influencing the music scene as we know it today and cramming it all into three or four lines. It's not easy, I can tell you. So, here's a review Tazz did of Tangerine Dream's recent concert at the RAH....simple.
