Album review: THE LIZARDS – Reptilicus Maximus

THE LIZARDS - Reptilicus Maximus

Hyperspace Records [Release date 01.09.15] The Lizards may leave us waiting far too long between albums but when they do appear they are invariably worthy of attention.  We reviewed their last “proper” 2006 release ‘Against All Odds’ noting that it … Continue reading

UFO - Parr Hall, Warrington, 20 March 2014

Having just received the recent UFO boxed set, 10 albums in as many years, where do you start for a live show?  It seems that the band have taken some criticism on the chin, with Phil Mogg referring to comments … Continue reading

Gig review: UFO – Oxford Academy, 24 February 2013

UFO - Oxford, 24 February 2013
