[Caught Live] Different People @ New Cross Inn 06/04/17

The first of my new live reviews begins down in New Cross, London.
Essex based rock band Different People are playing tonight and I intended to tell you all how they did.
Firstly let me say that Different People aren't just a rock band, they play music that is rocky sure, but its a lazy classification. They blend rock with a punk spirit, heavier moments akin to the early 90's grunge scene and with massive soaring melodies, so in a word they traverse genres.
The band, who are playing their first proper gig with this new line up, take to the stage and without hesitation delve straight into their opening song and the crowd are sucked in immediately.
Frontman Matthew switches his vocals from strong and melodius to harsh and screams and shouts blending the latter effortlessly into the bands mixed repertoire.
The band are incredibly tight across the board, killer riffs, strong basslines and pounding drums. The stand out moments come in the form of forthcoming single 'Best Before, Used By' which encapsulates a huge anthemic chorus that grabs you by the throat and shakes you and will not let go, and amazing set closer 'Tango' which this reviewer personally wants to hear again, a multi-layered beast of a set closer that is the perfect end to a killer set.
If i had one gripe about this set, the only thing would be i dont think they got long enough to play! Most bands go through an awkward phase with line up changes, Different People however have used this rebirth to light a fire under them. Much to their credit.
The band made a suitable impression and I for one will be at future shows enjoying the energy and fantastic music they create. The band have been impressive on this show and i can only see better and bigger things occuring, i urge anyone to check them out, like their pages and keep an eye on what comes next.
The band are gearing up to drop their new music video 'Best Before, Used By' shortly through Backwater Channel Records.
This band are built and designed for bigger things so I suggest you catch them live locally whilst you can.
They currently will be playing at:
The Attic/The Forum, Hertfordshire on 27th April and Fiddlers Elbow on 14th May.

Wrestlemania 34 Review

So as per tradition here is my official Wrestlemania 34 Review. Match by match I will give my opinions (for whatever they're worth), remember though, this is strictly my opinion and nothing more. With that, let us begin.. Pre-Show: We descend upon the Superdome and are greeted with the 5th annual Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal . As per usual, the poor unfortunate ones who haven't found themselves in a featured match on the card, begin slowly filling up the ring. The Battle Royal has always felt somewhat like an anticlimactic event, the winner gets a trophy but doesn't gain much else from the win. Being honest I wasn't bothered too much by who would win. Sad really. HOWEVER.. What actually transpired was something 'wonderful'. A highlight of sorts came from 'Woken' Matt Hardy bumping into Tye Dillinger and comically exclaiming 'Who are you?' before Tye showed him '10' and the crowd chanted, which in turn led to Matt

My 2017

So as usual I'm doing my year in review summery. 2017 has been an interesting year for me, in terms of growth, challenges and learning more about myself. Its been a year that at times has been difficult, but I feel like the things have been difficult in order to provide me with a stronger outlook and resolve heading into 2018. Life does have a interesting way of balancing itself, although bad happens eventually good will always rise up to equal it. I've met some amazing new people this year too. People that although I haven't known long, I am very grateful for their presence in my life. I feel very happy to have each and every person who has spent time with me or talking to me this year. You all know who you are and we all have great times to come. I broke straight edge after 10 years, something that was a big thing for me, an evolution of sorts. I've also added more tattoos to my body, which will continue next year too I have taken in some amazing gigs thi

Remembering Dave Melillo 'Talk Is Cheap'

Its funny how the past still influences the future, and in that vein its safe to say it's funny how my past musical loves can influence me still today. Anyone who knows me will attest that I have been a pop punk fan since they first met me, be it a year ago or 20 years ago. Back in the summer of 2006 I discovered an EP entitled 'Talk is Cheap', it was released through Drive Thru Records (a label that housed some of my favourite bands) and was by a singer songwriter called Dave Melillo. The EP was an enriched blend of acoustic guitar and piano laden melodies, all drenching a mix of forlorn and optimistic lyrics. The reason the EP stuck with me was simply because the songs are so accessable, especially as lyrically its easy to relate to everything Dave sang. Comparisons will be made to the likes of Dashboard Confessional or The Rocket Summer, and whilst the acoustic singer songwriter aspect is the same, Dave very much has his own voice and take on the genre.
