Review: Echo Machine – “Instant Transmissions”

Firstly, yes I do know this album came out like a year ago but I only actually find out about it on Friday when I was sent the video for the band’s cover of Peremen. Hailing from Dundee, Echo Machine are a blast of 80’s inspired synth-pop with a modern twist, up to date production …

Review: Godzilla vs. Kong

At just under 2hrs. Godzilla vs. Kong may be the shortest of the MonsterVerse films thus far but it may also be the best of them and while usually I enjoy longer films, if Zack Snyder’s Justice League has taught me anything it’s that sometimes trimming some of the fat can definitely be a good …

Review: Paradise City Season 1

To my surprise American Satan was one of the better films of 2017 so I was really looking forward to seeing where Paradise City was going to take the characters and story that had been so carefully crafted for that film.

Review: WandaVision Season 1

When WandaVision first began in January I really didn’t know what to make of it. I didn’t really get the concept of the show as a whole and I’ve never been a huge an of the Wanda Maximoff character in the films. But, given the fact it is the only entry into the Marvel Cinematic …

Review: Deacon Blue – “Riding on the Tide of Love”

The term “legends” is thrown about far too often these days but when describing Deacon Blue, you’d be doing the band a disservice if you didn’t utilise it. The band have been going strong since since 1985 and are as popular now as they have ever been. Yes, there’s been hiccups, break-ups and line-up changes …
