You can’t keep a good franchise down; lord knows they tried with the release of the much maligned episodes one and two of the Star Wars saga, but no matter what, eventually the licence to entertain and print money, sell merchandise and hopefully the true point of making a good story realised on screen will see the series continue.

The Bad Shepherds, Gig Review. 02 Academy, Liverpool.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

There is a moment when you are listening to The Bad Shepherds, whether it is on a C.D. or more importantly in the realms of the live performance that you realise just how important the music they have taken hold of actually is. What is more significant, is what they have moulded out of precious material and given new form to, the music remains, the lyrics don’t really change at all and yet somehow they have either given fresh impetuous to the song at hand or given a completely new radical meaning to the track.
