Wishbone Ash–Fibbers, 13/10/15

Opening proceedings tonight, City Of Thieves were a mixed bag – not of quality or power, both of which they maintained throughout their set, but of influences. Jamie Lailey’s vocals during the first track reminded me of AC/DC, a lot … Continue reading

Celestial Fire–Fibbers, 01/10/15

I was in two minds about attending this gig. A couple of years ago (almost to the day) I went to see Iona, based solely on the fact that I had seen the band linked on Mostly Autumn’s website so … Continue reading

Joanne Shaw Taylor–Fibbers, 28/09/15

If it hadn’t been for Blurred Vision’s slot opening for Uriah Heep earlier in the year, Manchester’s Federal Charm might have been my “surprise support act” for 2015. As it is, it was a close run thing. Their mix of … Continue reading

The Icicle Works–Fibbers, 25/09/15

I may be over-simplifying things but it seems to me (completely non-musical as I am) that the man-and-acoustic-guitar act is the easiest form of live music. While I’m not denigrating the work these these acts put in – they still … Continue reading

Halo Blind–Fibbers, 17/07/15

Knifeworld–Fibbers, 28/05/15

There was something strangely ethereal about the near-deserted Fibbers (don’t worry, it didn’t stay deserted for long – I just always get there early) when I arrived tonight. A smoky haze hung not just over the darkened stage, but encroached … Continue reading

Panic Room–Fibbers, 07/05/15

It’s not often that the two greatest loves of my life (outside of family, and chocolate) combine – a Joe Satriani album cover is the only occasion that readily springs to mind – so when Alex Cromarty, fresh from his … Continue reading
