Gig Review: Pulled Apart By Horses at Fluffer Pit Party, Hackney Arts Centre

Fluffer Pit Parties have earned a bit of a reputation for being nights of all-out, noise-laden carnage. Invisible walls are broken down as crowds watch their favourite bands from the front, side and rear. Traditional venues are foregone for something more underground. And musical acts tend to be the best selection of guitar-heavy acts on…

Pulled Apart By Horses to headline Fluffer Pit Party this May

Fluffer Pit Parties have gained a reputation for being fine purveyors of all-out, face melting fun. After all, the concept is simple and fail-safe. Set up a 360-degree stage in the middle of a room. Invite the hottest scuzz, thrash, noise and punk act to play, and let punters go wild as they get a…

Introducing: Circus Wolves

Is it possible to sound like a region? Beyond the obvious concept of spoken accents, it certainly is. Industry, history and even transport links can encourage certain musical sounds to breed. Simply look at Liverpool’s success at fostering colourful and vivid psychedelia thanks to its port granting quick access to the Americas (see The Beatles, The Teardrop…

After all, this leaves them with just Alan Partridge (Dan!), Stephen Fry (living legend) and Delia Smith (yawn, football) as their local cultural heroes. Fortunately, music is…

Introducing: Mosley Bar

Indie is dead. Or so at least that’s what people like to believe. After its height in the mid to late 2000s with the commercial success of Arctic Monkeys, Libertines and the plethora of other four piece boys bands donning fedoras and skinny jeans, the indie scene moved on, in tune with the cyclical nature…

Introducing: Chris Blackwood

There’s something quite magical about listening to an album from start to finish. By doing so, you get to wrap yourself in an artist’s vision. Experience music as part of a narrative. Live through the peaks, troughs and appreciate the considered closing. It’s something that’s very far removed from the stream-and-skip Spotify generation we live…

Introducing: Walkway

They make music to swig beers to. They play riffs to headbang with. Their tunes make you want to drive over the speed limit with your windows down and the volume up to 11. Not that we’re advocating doing that, exactly. We’re talking about Walkway, who can only be summed up as the epitome of…
