Mogwai and Out Lines head to Northumbria Uni – GIG NEWS

Out Lines join Mogwai at Northumbria Uni

A great gig just got a whole lot erm… greater…

Mogwai never let us down when it comes to great support bands. The Twilight Sad have retreated from the limelight after a mammoth tour for their last LP and a huge arena tour with The Cure. James is not resting up. Instead, he is forging ahead with a new Scottish super band (of sorts). We’re pretty damned excited to see them in Newcastle.

Of course, it goes without saying that Mogwai will be outstanding, they always are 🙂 Tickets have been flying out for this one. So get your skates on!


REBELLION FESTIVAL confirm Peter Hook and the Light for 2018 – MUSIC NEWS

Rebellion Festival confirm Peter Hook and the Light for 2018

When Joy Division and New Order legend Peter Hook performed at Rebellion Festival in 2016 it was widely regarded to be one of the most memorable sets of the weekend. It is, then, with great pleasure that Rebellion can confirm that Peter Hook & The Light will return to play the festival in 2018 for a special ‘best of Joy Division’ set.

“It’s a real pleasure to be returning to Rebellion Festival with The Light again,” states Peter. “Rebellion’s a tremendous event bringing together a great line up of alternative and punk bands with a very enthusiastic crowd. The reactions are always great and it attracts a real mix of people to Blackpool’s Winter Gardens, a great venue in its own right. It’s always a unique occasion and one of the highlights of the year.”

Joining Peter Hook in 2018 is the kind of line-up that Rebellion Festival is known and respected for the world over, bringing together the best and most vital bands from the long and varied history and present of punk and alternative music.

Some of the other acts already confirmed include the cream of UK punk such as The Exploited, Cockney Rejects, Angelic Upstarts, Discharge, Ruts DC, UK Subs, and Slaughter & The Dogs joining a host of punk and hardcore from around the world, including legends such as D.R.I., The Adolescents, SNFU, Toxic Reasons, Raw Power and many more.

Creature – ‘Bored’ New promo video – VIDEO and PHOTO FEATURE

Creature – Bored

Lots of firsts with this one. My first video as director and editor. Matthews first video with Blank Slate (top notch job too!) Creature’s first release and first video! First time on Punktastic and the first storage trailer I’ve shot in!

Shot at U Hold the Key storage in Heaton (thank you to the lovely folk there for making it happen!) on a really hot sunny afternoon. 4 hours of takes and fun. We wanted something fast, snappy and edgy, with a trippy black and white vibe.
