Johnny Marr

Johnny Marr

"How are we doing?” Johnny Marr asks the crowd, a few songs into his set. The response: chants of “ go Johnny go go go ” from Chuck Berry’s rockabilly hit ‘Johnny B Goode’ erupt in the crowd. What do you expect? The 49-year-old onstage...

The Internet/ Kilo Kish

The Internet/ Kilo Kish

There was a time when an OFWGKTA alias guaranteed a certain amount of interest in what you did, regardless of whether the music merited it. Tonight, when the music actually does merit it, the interest is practically nil: 30 or so people who seem...

Kurt Vile

Kurt Vile

It’s nearly 10.30pm and there’s no action whatsoever on Camden Barfly’s small stage. In front of it, the crowd is packed so densely it may as well be waiting for a Glastonbury headliner. Raising your arms is difficult. Going to the bar is...

Bleached/Sean Nicholas Savage

" Don't tell me I'm crazy, " slurs Jessie Clavin to a busy back room in a pub, lips stained red from the wine she's been swigging straight from the bottle between songs. " But I've been searching through the past. " Yeah, no kidding. With nods to...

Jagwar Ma

Jagwar Ma

For five minutes you don't even know if Jagwar Ma have started playing. There's a bloke onstage, certainly, teasing brown sounds out of a laptop along to a Margate mobile disco light show. Then some birdsong skitterbeats and the flush of Satan's...

Django Django/Miles Kane/Palma Violets/Peace

It's been emotional. And indeed, floods of feelings are the way in which this year's NME Awards Tour comes to an end. Firstly the warm and fuzzy kind that Peace's delicious baggy sonic hugs make us feel. Genuine lighters (not mobile phones, mind...
