Austerity Cafe – Nottingham Culture –

Here’s a review I did for a recent performance of The Austerity Cafe at Nottingham Contemporary last Saturday.–austerity-cafe/id/8279


The House of Thieves strutting their stuff in Nottingham City Centre

The House of Thieves have released their much anticipated debut album and; with 11 tracks and 40 minutes of feel good ‘indie’ rock, I defy anyone not to be hooked by another of Nottingham’s stars of the future.

Most of us will be singing along to these tracks, the others will be either dancing or foot tapping along to them.


If you want something mellower, Tom Gourlay (the lead singer and songwriter) has also recorded a solo album where he shows his folk/country credentials on The Alchemist.
