Sets and Rugs and Rock N Roll - Tom Hingley and Skull at The Belgrave Music Hall

Posted by vibrations on 21-05-17

As one who was rather late to coming round to the whole baggy thing, it's taken me a while to realise just how good Inspiral Carpets and Tom Hingley's voice were/are. Though that particular pop combo have been rolled up for a while (I hear that Clint Boon is doing rather well though), fear not - Tom's a-coming and he's bringing a whole new set of tunes as well as a whole slew of oldies. Care to cut a rug?

One Big Family Outing

Posted by vibrations on 07-03-17

It is an undeniable and tragic fact that there are more and more people living rough on the streets of the UK and less and less is being done for them. Without getting too political, these are tough times for those who have little or nothing. There are still however good people out there who get less air time than beer swigging, fox hunting guffawing biggots and individuals with bad hair pieces and even worse morals who are trying to help those who aren't getting the help they need, and all you need to do to help is listen to some top notch bands.

New Head Boys - Too Cool for Skull

Posted by vibrations on 15-11-16

You usually find trends in band names... a couple of years ago we had a pack of wolves, recently it was a picnic of bears. Now, we have a cluster of skulls, but only this Leeds four piece have cut to the chase. Skull.

Pining for The High and Lonesome Trail – 19th/20th November, Brudenell Social Club, Hyde Park Book Club, Left Bank

Posted by vibrations on 10-11-16

One of the things that is great about the whole Leeds music thing is that it refuses to be dictated to about when festival season is. Forget ending at the beginning of September, that’s when things get musically interesting in Leeds.

'A Divorce Before Marriage' - Directed by Matt Hopkins and Ben Lankester

Posted by vibrations on 10-11-16

About a year and a half ago, Vibrations featured an interview with Matt Hopkins and Ben Lankester about their forthcoming post-rockumentary, 'A Divorce Before Marriage'. It's taken them a little longer than first anticipated due to the volume of material to edit (eighteen months' worth) but the result is more than worth the wait. Alan Stewart completes the story of this very amicable divorce...

Embrace Uncertainty

Posted by vibrations on 28-07-16

West Yorkshire's Embrace have been on the music scene for 26 (count them) years now, and though there was quite a hiatus between their last album and... well anything before that, we're hardly talking Stone Roses timescales here (the list in descending order is cosmological timescales, geological timescales and Stone Roses timescales), they have been busy being secret, in a loud kinda way...

Out in the open: honesty on an epic scale from Dancing Years

Posted by vibrations on 21-02-16

On the cusp of releasing their official debut EP as Dancing Years, there’s a palpable excitement in the air at the DY camp. Having support tours with the likes of George Ezra, Dry the River and Eaves firmly under their belts, and with the guidance of Colin Elliot (Richard Hawley, Slow Club) to produce a beautiful batch of honest and intimate songs, things are definitely stepping up a gear for the band. Katharine Hartley spoke to guitarist Dan Fielding to get to the lowdown on what’s next for the Leeds favourites….
