My Top 9 albums of 2018

How many times can you possibly listen to the same album over and over again? 2018 was an amazing year for new music. My three most favourite bands released new music, I basically had no choice but to put them in the top 3 spots on the list. But even apart from those, there were … Continue reading My Top 9 albums of 2018

Kasabian, Columbiahalle Berlin, 2017

Is it still cool to be a Kasabian fan? Or are they too 'mainstream' by now and therefore automatically considered extremely uncool?

And I … Continue reading Kasabian – For Crying Out Live (Columbiahalle Berlin / Mehr! Theater Hamburg)
