The overall problem with most cinematic experiences is that with some certain emotions, the truth of understanding them, even seeing them portrayed, is as likely as receiving an apologetic face from a pet cat after it has done its business in the wrong place; some reactions, some sentiments are impossible to replicate, even in the hands of a master actor.

Somewhere On Dartmoor, Will Lay Eternal.


The train will take me

onwards, an electric hum

a bitter substitute

for the days of steam

and the loosely packed sandwich

that flirts suggestively

with the expiry date

and the unflavoured tea,

hot, sweet, dull as yesterday’s dishwater;

this journey will be different

to the one that we took when

fans in red and thick west

Lancashire accents

set fire to the carriage

and the driver sped on,

eating up miles in an attempt

to blow it out, steam train serenade.

Woke, Theatre Review. Unity Theatre, Liverpool.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * * *

The term might be one in which the ears and the brain dismisses as yet another piece of slang bandied about by the young seeking to confuse or irritate those of the generations that have gone before them, a word seemingly pulled out of thin air, a modern catch-phrase which means nothing to those over 30, after all, if you take heed of the advice of those over a certain age, it is only the young that need to wake up, isn’t it?

Christine And The Queens, Chris. Album Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

When the world is in crisis, it is quite impossible to hear the cry of a single figure. Yet as the darkness comes into every sanctuary possible, as it invades the very heart of what we have to offer, where people look upon you with suspicion for betraying the ghost of a smile and the demon of a heart-felt thanks in your soul, we must still surely see that the whisper of help from even an individual is to be taken as seriously as nation’s grief.

Rachel Newton, West. Album Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * * *

Trust in one’s self to create a sense of timeless perfection is perhaps one of the ultimate goals in which any artist can strive for. Trust, it is not always given to those in our company, let alone to ourselves, we may believe that what we do is the singular most important desire to feel and we wish to convey that to others in a bout of confidence, in a show of hands we seek validation, but what we often forget to engage with is understanding, we may love and admire our own creation,  but unless we understand what it will do to others, then the moment is tangible, never timeless.

Gilmore & Roberts, A Problem Of Our Kind. Album Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision 8.5/10

The problem with our kind of person is that invariably they turn out to be on the wrong side, playing a game of their own choosing, their negativity only becoming apparent when the rules of engagement find a way to spoil their plans; it is in the very best ideals of the Noir detective, of the sinister spoils that infiltrate the world of the spy and the espionage, that those that are not our kind, are always a problem worth dealing with.
