Live Review: Don't Forget Rupert

Don't Forget Rupert (Round Three)Headline Tour
Nottingham
17th of April 2019
Don't Forget Rupert
So Don't Forget Rupert have just finished their first UK tour, and they kicked the tour off in Nottingham... and of course I had to get myself down there to go and check out what round 3 had on offer, they also released a new song on that day as well, which is called Bringing Back Old Memories, it's an absolute bop!
I do want to add that I did get the chance of getting to talk to Ben and Lewis and they were so lovely! And I got to show them my Long Time Coming tattoo and yeah, it was a nice touch to the night!
I've seen Don't Forget Rupert three times now and this was definitely the best. They're such an incredible band, and honestly, I can't wait to see them again, because they're so much energy in their sets, and every time I see them there always ends up being a wild Ben Martin in the crowd, which really just makes it even better!
We had a great mix of songs, from stuff like Keep Up to Bringing Back Old Memories, and then the classics like Get Fucked and Long Time Coming. It was an incredible setlist, and I don't think I could have picked a better set of songs for them to do. Honestly, that setlist was perfect for the night. It got the crowd engaged from the second that it started.
They opened with Time Takes It's Toll and closed with Get Fucked so really could you ask for anything better? I don't think so!
If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing Don't Forget Rupert live then you kind of have to, because they're just incredible! There is always so much energy, and I don't just mean from Ben. Every one of them puts in loads of energy, and it's incredible because a gig with energy makes it enjoyable. It makes you want to be there. You enjoy it more, you enjoy joining in and jumping and clapping along and just having an overall great time!
Every time I see Don't Forget Rupert I'm always left wanting to relive it all over again because they really are just that great! And they're super lovely, I mean I only spoke to Ben and Lewis but they're both lovely and I'm sure Lou and Pete are too!
Such lovely guys, with such great talent. You need to see Don't Forget Rupert if you get the chance to because they really are one of the best, they're definitely in my top 3 top Notts bands!
Overall I'd give it a solid 5 out of 5 sparkly lemons!

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po
