It’s a busy night in London. Katatonia headlining the Koko, performing Last Fair Deal Gone Down in its entirety and filming for a new DVD. Marty Friedman is at the Camden Underworld, widdling away and giving the guitar geeks all the musical porn they need to fretwank to. New York bruisers Emmure are headlining the Relentless Garage, providing the perfect downtuned soundtrack for some brutal pit action and dance moves people choose to forget when they wake up. DETAG.

Who do you want to see headline the summer festivals in 2011?

November 18th, 2010

With Andy Copping Twittering about having “two Download headliners locked in” and Sonisphere’s people flyering at the Deftones gig in Brixton last night, the UK summer festival season of 2011 is well and truly under way.

But who’s gonna be headlining? That’s what everyone really cares about. Bon Jovi, Iron Maiden and Foo Fighters are all surely out of the festival picture seeing as they’ve got their own massive shows to sell but there are still plenty of options.

AC/DC exhibition due in Camden, London in 2009

November 19th, 2008

The Proud Galleries in Camden, London are going to be hosting an exhibition celebrating AC/DC’s latest – and probably last ever – world tour.

Taking place between 05 February 2009 and 31 May 2009, the exhibition will look at the band in their youth, in the days before the success, through the lens of Australian rock photographer Philip Morris. That’s one of his, up there.

This will definitely be the first time these images will be seen in the UK and some of the late, great Bon Scott might have never seen daylight anywhere, ever.

It is probably going to be really good.

Watch a promo clip of when the exhibition was in Sydney

There was a Nirvana exhibition at Proud Galleries in Charing Cross once and it was so good one man bought the book, Winterlong, twice. It wasn’t us. Honest.

Did you know that AC/DC classic album Back In Black has sold 42 million copies? Well it has.
