KEE MARCELLO - Camden Underworld, London, 12 October 2018

Thirty years ago Europe proved The Final Countdown was no flash in the pan by recording their follow up album Out Of This World. Having played its predecessor to death, I was initially underwhelmed, but over the years it has … Continue reading

ELECTRIC BOYS - Camden Underworld, London, 4 December 2017

When funk rock and metal was all the rage for a brief period at the turn of the nineties, the Electric Boys rode that zeitgeist very effectively with their debut album ‘Funk’ o’ Metal Carpet Ride’, allied to a striking … Continue reading

MITCH MALLOY - Camden Underworld, 18 September 2016

Ever since the release of his classic self-titled debut in 1992, chock full of memorable anthems and heartfelt ballads, Mitch Malloy has been one of AOR and melodic rock’s cult figures. However despite several appearances at Firefest it has been … Continue reading

Gig review: GUN – Camden Underworld, London, 24 March 2015

GUN - Camden Underworld, London, 24 March 2015

Gig review: ELECTRIC BOYS, Camden Underworld, London, 26 September 2014

Bad Touch - Camden Underworld, London, 26 September 2014

Since they reformed in 2009, Sweden’s own self proclaimed funk-o-metallers Electric Boys have been regular visitors to these shores, with this tour at least their fourth by my reckoning including festival appearances. Perhaps it is this over familiarity that has … Continue reading

Gig review: AUDREY HORNE, Camden Underworld, 2 May 2013

You often wonder why some bands are not bigger names than expected, when talking music with fellow fans.  Threshold and their modest following in their native UK are often one that crops up and I’d add Audrey Horne who played … Continue reading
