You know it's been a weird gig when you spend the first 15 minutes afterwards trying to work out why the audience just didn't seem up for it. Did they not know the songs? Was it a...

GoGo Penguin are playing a sold out show, smack in the middle of Shoreditch. There’s a good start. Piano, drums, double bass, no vocals. GoGo Penguin, from Manchester, made...

So, what is music? If you believe music is primarily something to listen to whilst you do something else, you will hate this band. They wouldn’t make judges’ houses on X...

Sleaford Mods @ Broadcast, Glasgow - 05/11/2014
