Motorhead – Wolverhampton Civic Hall Wednesday 2 November 2011

Posted on 23 November 2011 by Mizzle

Nice is a word rarely if at all associated with Motorhead, they don’t make ‘nice’ music, they don’t look nice infact they have built a formidable career on being rather…. ‘un-nice’

But what is ‘nice’ is how they can crossover into so many genres, can bring together so many different backgrounds, ages, philosphies all with one passion the music!  So perhaps it was little surprise to see the UK Subs & Anti Nowehere league on the bill delivering their own styles of anti nice music!

Motorhead are like Ronseel they do what it says on the tin, so does this make them predicatble? Well yes perhaps but you have to admire a band that stick to their princiuples never steer from what they love and never deliver anything less than 110% and its that sort of philospy that fits into the punk arena!

If its your first time seeing Motorhead then its an eye opener, it’s a bit like being in a train crash that lasts for about 2 hours – its relentless!.  So when they walk on stage and launch into Bomber you know theyre in the Building and by the time that’s finished theyre into the next melodic ballad ‘Damage Case’.  It’s a well rounded set with more hits to throw at you than Rocky.

When the green light descends upon Lemmy you know whats coming… ‘Orgasmatron’ still one of my all time favourites, his motionless stance and natural grimace adding to the sinister undertones.  So follow this with  a guitar solo a drum solo and an encore there can only be one ace left up their sleeves…yep you got it the ace of spades –  with ear drums split, bruises on order its ‘nice’ to have got out alive!!!

Saturday 29th October was the date to remember for such artists as Labrinth, Zane Lowe, DJ Hype, Friendly Fires DJ Set, Beardyman and Artwork (just to name a few). This was Part 2 of the exciting Trilogy.

Ricky who? Stephen Merchant shines in Hello Ladies

Ricky who? Stephen Merchant shines in Hello Ladies

Posted on 09 November 2011 by Neil Paterson

Wolverhampton Civic Hall, 5th November 2011

Like The X Factor without a twat, it’s hard to imagine Stephen Merchant without Ricky Gervais. And yet it transpires Smerch was a stand-up in his own right before he met the stubbly, stumpy saviour of British comedy.

So with Hello Ladies, his first stand-up since 1997, could the 6ft 7in Bristolian shine despite the shadow of his famous mate?

Any doubts were put aside in moments, the audience in raptures as he recalls his first appearance in the press in which his lofty frame was literally cut short. Whilst his style takes more than a nod and a wink from Gervais (ironic references to his fame, awards, etc), he comes across as a warmer, more personable act with laugh-til-your face-aches anecdotes and observational wit in spades.

Topics were loosely based on the idea of his inability to find a wife but in reality this was an excuse to give an unexpected masterclass in stand-up. And it included the funniest moment in pitch black since Alan Partridge met Jill’s chocolate mousse.
