Dunes – 22nd May 2018 – Think Tank Newcastle – Photos

I was feeling a bit down in the dumps until I heard Dunes were playing! I popped in for their set and left my low mood behind! Three new songs tonight from their upcoming debut LP. Very very nice! This is the first time I’ve seen them properly (other than on our shoot for the Seapig video) this year. It’s hard not to like their music, easily my favourite local act in recent years.

TINY MOVING PARTS | 09.04.18 | Think Tank Newcastle

Tiny Moving Parts – 9th April 2018 – Think Tank Newcastle – Review and photos

By Gordon Armstrong (G’s Gig Shots)

Firstly, my apologies to bass guitarist Matthew Chevalier, as there are so few photos of him. However that’s because the gig was so well attended that I couldn’t get near his side of the stage for dancing and singing fans. So I guess no photos is probably the last thing on his mind in those circumstances!!

Tiny Moving Parts - April 2018 - Think Tank Newcastle
Tiny Moving Parts – April 2018 – Think Tank Newcastle

Tiny Moving Parts are a family affair with Matthew and brother William (drums) and cousin Dylan Mattheisen on guitar and lead vocals. They are described online as “emo revival ” but there’s much more to that in my opinion. There are catchy pop-punk sing-alongs, insane guitar runs that some math-rock bands would be proud of and more!

It’s hard to believe they’ve been together 10 years now they still look so young and fresh-faced (Dylan has to be the most smiling happy looking frontman I’ve seen in years) but their latest album Swell (Triple Crown Records ) is their 6th!!!

Like a lot of bands in this scene, their fans absolutely love them and there’s a great rapport between band and crowd from start to finish and the band head straight to the merch table after the last note has faded to hang out with them like long-standing mates!! I’m quite new to these guys having only caught them opening for Fall of Troy a little while back but they impressed me then and even more so tonight! Definitely gonna be hunting down that back catalogue.

SUMO CYCO | 19.03.18 | Think Tank Newcastle

SUMO CYCO | 19.03.18 | Think Tank Newcastle

Sumo Cyco – 19th March 2018 – Think Tank Newcastle – Review and photos

I arrived at the venue (sadly) just as Skarlett Riot were taking end of set photos with the crowd. Which left me annoyed with myself! One of these days I will catch them. Judging by the applause I missed a rather cracking set 🙁

It’s a cold Monday night, but there is already a mini-moshpit of devoted fans already at the front and raring to go! Also, there seems to be a million photographers here, much to my amusement! I needn’t have brought my camera tonight =D

I decided to stay at the back out of the way, rather than my usual upfront position. Too many cooks in the kitchen and I thought I’d be annoying to the punters who’ve paid to see the band! I found myself a canny spot where I could see all goings on, apart from the drummer 🙁

I think this photo sums up my amusement 🙂

Okay, that’s enough of that, now can I say about this show? Skye Sweetnam stalks the stage with feral intensity. Encouraging the crowd to go wild. She has a hell of a voice, reminds me of the brilliant Be Your Own Pet (remember them?!) when she lets rip.

Punk rock and groove metal slip into rap without difficulty, adding a mix of singalong pop anthems. Impressive. It’s that melting pot of styles I love about Sumo Cyco, genre mish-mash executed perfectly.

Sumo Cyco – 18th March 2018 – Think Tank Newcastle

It’s quite remarkable that this band hasn’t yet achieved stadium status. They have everything right, great songs, great stage presence, youthful energy and the experience to make it. They tour relentlessly. It seems that if they are to breakthrough they’ll be doing it the good old-fashioned way; hard work. They appear to be having the time of their lives doing it. With the likes of Marmozets hitting it big, there is a glimmer of hope.

Sumo Cyco are a fantastic band, please go see them in the small venues before the rest of the world cottons on! Their name is rock ‘n’ roll!
