Published in Album Reviews
Friday, 28 March 2014 17:01
Nashville - When I think of a live album, I think of the screaming crowd, the distorted sound, the difficulty hearing.

Dynamo has completely shifted this way of thinking for me with their debut live album, Live at Ocean Way (released on March 1...

Published in Live Reviews
Tuesday, 25 March 2014 08:42
Nashville - It has been far too long since we’ve had a real, true, honest-to-god British Invasion: the last one we really had was when the Beatles and the Rolling Stones marched onto American soil as if it was a Revolutionary War reenactment.
