‘Psychedelic fresh air’ – We take a look at Onoe Caponoe’s ‘Voices From Planet Cattele’.

‘Psychedelic fresh air’ – We take a look at Onoe Caponoe’s ‘Voices From Planet Cattele’.

High Focus have certainly continued their seemingly endless run of quality releases with Onoe Caponoe’s latest project ‘Voices From Planet Cattele’. Conceptually, it fits the label perfectly. As always, an abnormal blend of psychedelic themes run throughout the very heart of the project, as well as all around the outside as well. // Read More

Are TIGERCUB the new generation of rock n’ roll?

There was no better way in starting December, than going to TIGERCUB’s Single launch at London Road’s Bleach. Prior to this event, I had not seen the alternate rock trio live, but was excited to do so, as I have heard so many promising things about the band. TIGERCUB are // Read More
