Crap Gigs, And How To Survive Them

Bittles' Magazine/Bühne/Live

Bittles‘ Magazine

We have all been there! You’re at a show and the sound is so bad you can’t discern the music from the feedback. Or you are squeezed into a corner so tightly by an unforgiving and unwashed throng of people that you literally feel like you might die from lack of oxygen. Perhaps you enter the venue like an eager beaver and scan the crowd for friendly faces only to realise straight away that you have made a huge mistake. By JOHN BITTLES
Pink Skull

Just be prepared to dance!

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview: Pink Skull

It is not often that a dance album makes me sit up and take notice on the very first play. But that is exactly the effect that Huitlacoche by the band Pink Skull had on me. Coming out on My Favorite Robot Records on the 10th of February the record, the band’s fourth in total, is a raw, dirty, funk-filled delight that is perfect for headphones and dance-floors everywhere. An Interview with Pink Skull by JOHN BITTLES.

The MFS Trip into the History of Trance!

Bittles' Magazine

Bittles‘ Magazine | Album Review

Before the term Trance became something to be pitied, hated and despised as well as the dominant force in dance music it was seen as a creative revelation that brought the emotion back to House. The adrenaline-fuelled head-rush of rave was coming to an end, hardcore had become just too hard and the club kids were craving something new with which to get their chemical kicks. By JOHN BITTLES

Some Tunes To Help Fight Those January Blues!

Bittles‘ Magazine | Album Review

You know what! I love January! It’s that whole sense of anticipation of what the new year is gonna bring that leads me to look forward to the upcoming year. Sure, no one is playing any gigs, or releasing music! But that just means you have to look that little bit harder to find the hidden gems. By JOHN BITTLES

The Not Quite Definitive Album of the Year List!

Bittles' Magazine

Bittles‘ Magazine

2013 really has been an excellent year for music! Not that you would know it from a quick perusal of the official charts, mind you. It seemed this year, more than others that the truly great music was hiding, needing to be coaxed out and into our ears. Yet just below the surface of the usual banal MOR type crap that pacifies the nation there was a wealth of fantastic albums vying ever more eagerly for the attention of the discerning listener.

Once again it’s that time of year when everyone apart from the frustratingly organised is frantically striving to get just the right presents for all their friends and family. And as there is no better way to show someone that you love them than to embrace your part within a consumer society I thought I would use this week’s article to highlight some excellent new releases which will make the perfect gift for yourself and your family.

Mt. Wolf Live at Heaven 12th November 2013.

Bittles' Magazine/Live

Bittles‘ Magazine | In Concert: Mt. Wolf Live at Heaven (London)

When an emerging band are as hyped as London four-piece Mt. Wolf are right now it is usually a sign that you are going to hate them with a passion. Most of this is down to the fact that over these last few years here in London town the hype machine has been chugging out faceless crap band after faceless crap band. Yet, early indications suggest that Mt. Wolf may actually warrant all the media and blog attention that has come their way! Vocalist Kate Sproule has a soft, enchanting voice that could melt the strongest of hearts, while the band’s hushed atmospherics sound just as good on a warm Summer’s morning as on a cold November night.

An Interview with Jonsson/Alter

Bittles‘ Magazine

Like any right-minded music lover I fell a little bit in love with Mod, the debut album by Jonsson/Alter upon its release in the cold autumn months of last year. It was the type of record that drifted into your consciousness and resided there unobserved until you came to realise how completely empty your life would be without it. So when news emerged of a follow-up I have to admit that I punched the air in delight (for me as a typical working-class male that is one huge display of emotion. Seriously!). By JOHN BITTLES
