Peace//Drenge @ Leeds Met SU

  With as many Drenge as there are Peace T shirts, this is practically a double headline show. I was equally looking forward to both bands and I sensed as much from everyone else. Drenge’s self-titled debut album which came out earlier this year is a cracker, a snarling and gritty ‘anti-love’ record and a complete …

Nickelback: The Hits Tour 2013

New Order, the band they became after the suicide of lead vocalist Ian Curtis, found fame that was always denied to Joy Division, fusing New York dance beats with post-punk guitars. New Order …
