The Listening Booth – The St Pierre Snake Invasion, Bokassa and Billy Liar

Hello friends, welcome to my weekly ramble about what I’ve been putting into my ears. This time around we have some unhinged fuckery, a shitload of riffs and a local lad’s debut (well, he’s local to me, he won’t be local to you unless you also live in Edinburgh). Enjoy the ramblings, but more importantly, support the music.

The Listening Booth – Bruce Springsteen, Dinosaur Pile-Up and Cursed Earth

Hello friends, welcome to The Listening Booth where I ramble incoherently about what I’ve been putting into my ears. This week we’re going into an old favourite as The Boss comes to town followed by some perfect summer listening and a young hardcore band trying to keep their name in the spotlight. Sound good? I certainly hope so.

The Listening Booth – Ramona, Fresh and Shonen Knife

Hello friends, welcome to The Listening Booth where I ramble about what I’ve been putting into my ears this week. Truthfully, this might be one of the more rambling examples of the form as I’m not sure I managed to get any of my points across. I tried, though, so give me some credit. Fingers crossed you get something out of it, and at the very least you can enjoy the music.

The Listening Booth – Petrol Girls, Destrage and Slam Dunk

Hello friends, welcome to The Listening Booth, where I lecture people on what music I’ve been putting in my ears while occasionally working out some personal issues. I don’t think there should be too much of the latter this week, but you never know. We’re diving into some feminist post-hardcore, Italian, em, tech-hardcore? I honestly don’t know what you’d call it, and a ramble about something completely different. Enjoy.

The Listening Booth – Employed To Serve, Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties and Pkew Pkew Pkew

Hello friends, even with Best Of The Super Juniors taking up a shitload of my time, I still had room for The Listening Booth to saunter into the schedule. In the past week I’ve been having a fucking awesome time with Employed To Serve, Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties and PKEW PKEW PKEW all of whom I am about to incomprehensibly ramble about. Strap yourself in and enjoy. Or don’t. I won’t be angry. Well, maybe a little.

The Listening Booth – The Wildhearts, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and Amon Amarth

Hello friends, welcome to The Listening Booth where I ramble incoherently about what I’ve been putting into my ears. It has a been week of heavy hitters as we have the return of The Wildhearts, Frank Carter continuing his journey with The Rattlesnakes and some Vikings. You probably won’t discover something new, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun all the same.

The Listening Booth – The Damned Things, Cokie the Clown and Otoboke Beaver

Hello friends, welcome to The Listening Booth where I dive into the best (or most interesting) of what I’ve been listening to in the past week. As we kick off May I’ve had a slightly different aural seven days featuring a Fat Mike confessional and some Japanese, em, punk? We’ll go with that for the moment. Throw in the return of an old favourite, and there is plenty to get your teeth into.
