Kadavar - Live In Copenhagen

  Prolific stoner throughbacks, Kadavar, are back with a 12-track live set from their Rough Times tour. The quality of the recording is so impressive that it makes one wonder whether they should do all their albums live.

Over everything hangs the antic spirit of The Incredible String Band and Mike Heron, with whom The Bells have recently toured. The ...

They Might Be Giants, Queen's Hall, Edinburgh

When asked if I wanted to cover this performance, the teenaged me mentally shouted Yes! Of course! Hits like 'Don’t Lets Start', 'Istanbul', 'Whistling In The Dark' and 'Particle Man' flitted through my mind in quick succession....
