Review: Honeyblood with Estrons and LUCIA

There was something going on between the bands and the photographers at The Liquid Room on Saturday night.  Glaswegian openers LUCIA chose to capitalise on the attention, trying on a few aggressive poses during their first bit of '90s-era garage rock.  All in all, they showed off new EP Best Boy at its finest, with closer Saturday Is Dead providing a particularly danceable high-hat beat.

Review: Uncle Shawn and Bill by A.L. Kennedy and Gemma Correll

A L Kennedy’s latest book for children, Uncle Shawn and Bill (and the almost entirely unplanned adventure), features a talking badger, a mean pair of sisters, a scary dog and lots of tripe. But don’t worry, the tripe is only a product that the mean sisters sell (“used for packing round pianos and filling out the bits in newspapers that would otherwise be blank”), not a reflection at all of this fun adventure story.

Review: Rogue One

Rogue One is a film about people who are repeatedly told not to do something or they will suffer, choose to do it anyway, and suffer. Now if that’s not a film about today's world I don’t know what is.
