As the online gigs start to stack up, our live reviews have rebooted. Here’s a report on Jackson’s Jukebox; Luke Jackson’s ‘by request’ gig.
Mike has been photographing and writing about bands going back many years. A former writer and Reviews Editor on Louder Than War as well as several online music blogs, he also contributes to Fireworks and to Powerplay Rock & Metal magazines.
Another online gig and we’re at The Preservation Room for Lunatraktors performance folk art and a sneaky preview of their new album material.
Tom Kitching goes on an 18 month ‘busk’, now captured on an album (and book) reflecting the changing face of England.
David Watkinson goes deep into the history of Yes with an admirably detailed account of the early years of iconic singer Jon Anderson.
Fancy some psychedelic forest folk rock? Might sound unusual and not something you see (or hear) ever day but describes Hexvessel and Kindred to a tee.
Elephant Tree emerge from Church Studios with an epic piece of work that constitutes their third album Habits.
Folk fused singer songwriter Pete Morton releases his first set of new songs since 2015 with A Golden Thread, out on Further Records.

The debut album from Beatrix Player and PROG award winner Ms Amy Birks is a class act.
Peter Knight’s Gigspanner Big Band follow up their live work with as an impressive a debut as you’ll find. Anywhere. It’s called Natural Invention.
We have a jolly old chinwag with Pete Trewavas of Marillion about the deluxe reissue of the bands debut album Script For A Jester’s Tear (and much more)
The fourth studio album from Siobhan Miller, one of the key singer-songwriters to emerge from Scotland in recent times. All Is Not Forgotten is a beautifully crafted set.
Their previous This Is Eggland album was pretty good. I Am Moron finds The Lovely Eggs bringing us more idiocy from Lancaster.
So here we are once more. The 1983 debut album from infamous prog rockers Marillion gets re-issued with all the trimmings almost forty years after the initial release.
Twisted Wheel continue their evolution with a third album – Satisfying The Ritual – whose influences are far and wide, high and handsome and make up a belter of a record.
