The Horrors @ Electric Ballroom, Camden. June 5th 2009Before last night I’d never seen The Horrors live. Having become somewhat obsessed with their second album, the thrilling ‘Primary Colours’, I was half excited to hear it in the flesh, half nervous that any illusions of greatness I had would come crashing down in one fell swoop.

Post War Years @ The Lexington, June 3rd.

Post War Years are far too rare a proposition these days – a band that seem to be genuinely enjoying themselves on stage. They play with an energy I’ve only seen eclipsed by a formidable performance from The Mae Shi in recent months. Continue reading

Review: Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson @ The Lexington, May 26th.

Posted in Gig Pictures, Music Reviews, Tracks with tags , on May 27, 2009 by musicmuleblog

That Miles Benjamin Antony Robinson is a man of many names I am certain of but is he also the man of many talents as he has been dubbed by musos around the world? I went to his debut UK headline show at The Lexington near Kings Cross to find out. Continue reading

The Soft Pack @ 100 Club, May 20th 2009.

The Soft Pack were in town last night to play a sold out headline gig at the famous 100 Club on Oxford Street. They brought Glenn Rock, New Jersey’s finest Titus Andronicus along for the ride too for a mouth watering double bill. Continue reading
