Ghost – Phantomime EP

Since their second album Infestissumam, Swedish rockers Ghost have followed their LPs with an EP half way through their touring cycle, largely made up of cover versions of varying predictability (with the exception of Seven Inches Of Satanic Panic which was a pair of new originals), so, to follow 2022’s Impera album they have now...

John Le Sauvage – Four-45

John Le Sauvage will be a familiar face to many on Guernsey’s music scene as he has been a constant presence for a good number of years playing bass and/or guitar and singing with the likes of The Half Day Fridays, JD & Folk, his current band Neon Fire and no doubt various others, but...

As it began,... Continue Reading →
