Live Review: The Cribs + The Ninjas + Filthy Jackal - The Zoo, Brisbane (25.10.13)

When the turn of the millennium brought the downfall of Britpop and a resurgence in New York hipster bands influenced by the lo-fi guitar lines of Television and street threads of Johnny Thunders, certain U.K. music press – panicked by the thought of their watery scene being left behind – sought to crown a new generation of bands as the great white hopes for British guitar music. Enter a thrown-together group of bands of varying quality and style, consisting of The Libertines, Razorlight, the Jarman brothers of The Cribs, and others. Amid the haze of a million indie bands, the time has passed quickly since their 2004 debut, but are The Cribs still a force, or should they fade into the dark, as so many of their contemporaries have done? Tonight's gig would be the only way to tell.

The Cribs are a pretty simple rock band, they don’t play synthesizers, they don’t have disco drum beats, they don’t have complex looped sections. They just have a seemingly neverending stream of downright dirty riff-taculour rock and roll songs that have been an inspiration to a dozens of young indie rock groups over the past decade.

The Cribs

Having recently celebrated ten years in the business of making top-notch punk-tinged indie-rock and with a new record full of songs spanning the band's career, Gary Jarman, the refreshingly down-to-earth bassist and singer for The Cribs, is looking forward to coming to these shores for a run of shows next month.

Live Review: The Cribs + Sures, Oxford Art Factory (02.01.13)

Sures are late coming on stage. But I'm not complaining. Whoever's in charge of the pre-gig music is pulling out some gems, with The White Stripes, Modest Mouse and The Brian Jonestown Massacre making appearances. The Sures start to play to a filling Oxford Art Factory. There's a big gap between the front row of the crowd and the stage which doesn't fill until the end of the set.

Live Review: Pyramid Rock Festival (30 and 31.12.12)

This year’s Pyramid Rock Festival on Phillip Island in Victoria will be remembered by me not only as a paddock full of beer cans and flocks of seagulls. It will instead be remembered as the New Years Eve that someone threw a basketball at Dominic Simper of Tame Impala’s face. But let’s go back to the beginning, a time of sobriety and a lot less violence.
