Summer 2023 Live – LE TIGRE (Feat. Kathleen Hanna) And The Crowd Going Bonkers In BALTIMORE

12 September 2023

Riot grrrl queen KATHLEEN HANNA (aged 54 now) is quite busy playing reunion tours.

Three years ago she hit the road with her most famous and iconic punk act Bikini Kill. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 lockdown torpedoed lots of gigs.

This year, Hanna started a sold-out reunion tour with Le Tigre last May. Last week they played in Baltimore Last July. The roof went off when they played Deceptacon, the classic cracker (more than 156 million streams on Spotify) from their 1999 self-titled debut LP.

Startling urban punk two-piece NOVA TWINS, Amy Love & Georgia South,

Swedish sweaty rockers VIAGRA BOYS scored 2nd best album of 2022

Summer Live – Full Sparkling SPARKS Set At PRIMAVERA BARCELONA 2023

2 August 2023

The inseparable brothers Ron and Russell Mael, artistically known worldwide
for years now – since 1966 – as SPARKS are as productive, on and off stage,
as ever. Along the years they generated 3 generations of fans.

Last May they released their 25th LP, titled THE GIRL IS CRYING IN HER LATTE.
Another brisk pop triumph that got lots of accolades from the press. Not bad at
all for these imperishable musical siblings.

And live they’re also as fit as a fiddle. This and next year
it’s tour/album-promo time for the familial tandem.

Last June they played at the
Primavera Sound Festival

in Barcelona.

Here’s the full spark-ling set.

Summer Live – Full Sweaty AMYL & THE SNIFFERS Set At PRIMAVERA SOUND 2023

15 July 2023

AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS are a non-stop volcanic rawk & roll bolide from down under, led by the utterly cool and stormy frontwoman Amyl Taylor. An uproarious Melbourne-based
noise turbine generating a lethal cocktail of The Runaways (Joan Jett‘s teenage band)
and metallic fury Plasmatics (with the legendary Wendy O. Williams) fueled by an eruptive MotΓΆrhead drive. So far they released two LPs. The self-titled debut (2019) and the follow-up Comfort To Me (2021).

Last month they unleashed their demons at Primavera Sound Festival in Madrid, Spain.

Lots of clamor.
Lots of sweat.
Lots of fun.


60.000 Exploded When KASABIAN Get On FIRE At TRNSMT In Scotland Last Weekend

Leicester champs KASABIAN are one of the best live bands I witnessed in
the past 15 years. Always a rapturous get-together party when they hit the

After launching their newest LP The Alchemist’s Euphoria last year, they
took the road and are still going hot on several summer festivals this year.

Last weekend they were in Scotland at the TRNSMT fest.

60.000 went bonkers and exploded when frontman Serge Pizzorno
whipped them up for an orgastic finale of their 2009 blast FIRE (more
than 153 million streams on Spotify).

This short snippet says it all.


Two weeks ago I got fired up too when the band incited
the crowd with a blistering set at Rock Werchter in Belgium.

9 July 2023

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, orchestrated by mastermind JOSH HOMME
unleashed their 8th album, titled IN TIMES NEW ROMAN… 3 weeks ago.

TUTV said: “The new Queens album is a nightmarish journey into Homme‘s
beat-up mind. His thoughts reflect the hard times he went through in the past
years. The overall sonic tone is murky and tenebrous. From the mid-tempo stoner
blues grooves to rugged garage rockers. And Homme‘s vocality is browbeating.
He chases his demons.”

Last Sunday QOTSA closed the Rock Werchter Festival in Belgium.
Here’s the full HQ show as registered by the fest’s organization.

Stupendous performance.
