POS_thmbWith the UK in the middle of the usual mass hysteria that accompanies one or two flakes of snow, our intrepid scribe Jim Rowland was all set to get the 'Road Salt' out himself if he had to (see what we did there), just to ensure he was in North London in good time to catch the last date on Pain Of Salvation's UK headline tour. Thankfully for us all he didn't miss a note.....

primal86There's been a buzz around Iron Maiden's Adrian Smith lately and, for once, it wasn't caused by the unwashed denim cut-offs of his main band's sweaty fans.

FTHP_ThmbMaking the little girls scream 'n' the big girls wet since 2006 we simply love the no compromise attitude of the muthafuckin' Hip Priests here at Uber Rock.

ale86Warning: the live review that will greet you if you click that blood red link may be a little too piratey for you.

Pushing his handy jotter past the dancing poles, burlesque dancers and beds, Steve managed to dribble...err... scribble down his thoughts on the single launch gig from killer kitsch rockers Dick Venom & The Terrortones.

Vive-Le-Valentine-Poster_thmbUsing his cricket score of a birthday as an excuse to flee to the big city for a weekend away from the rest of us, we have to give Johnny H credit that at least he chose this Vive Le Rock endorsed night as the one at which to drown his midlife crisis. "Vive Le Valentine" was the title of the evening and our uber rocking lothario was more than up for the challenge with a bill boasting some of the UK's finest home grown rock 'n' roll talent.

danevi86It was February the 9th, Johnny H's birthday, yet the Über Röck legend could not attend this all-acoustic gig at the EVI for one simple reason: he shares a hairstyle (if you can even call it that?!) with the legendary Dan Reed and the latter had already made plans for the evening. Those plans? Amazing those lucky enough to witness a stunning solo performance, as Rob Watkins discovered....
