The Probes have always been one of my favourite young bands. I had the fateful privilege of sharing a philosophy lesson with the bands frontman – in whom he told me about his band. In an interview a couple of months back, the band told me how they had... Read more
The Cavern Stage felt like a second home to me by the time Cold Committee graced the stage. The room was already full with faces and thick with the warmth of a hundred bodies closely compact like a tin of beans. They didn’t hesitate for long before tearing into... Read more
