Over the course of 12 albums, Therapy have managed to make rock records that encompass and embrace the most unlikely influences and references. This ability to constantly transform and innovate is the reason the band has created so many unique and impressive records, but this is also the main criticism levelled at the band by […]

When, after eight years of being called Pickled Dick, the band ditched their name in favour of Mike TV, a lot of people starting asking questions. Enough people, in fact, for them to decide to issue us with a list of answers to some frequently asked questions. Why are you changing your name? Pickled Dick […]

Since they signed a new record deal with Fiction in December, Delays have been hard at work writing and recording new material. We caught up with the band during a brief break as they were putting the final touches on their songs and found out about their plans for an EP release in October, followed […]

Despite having turned up at the Original 106 studios to be interviewed about The Mag Awards, I couldn’t subdue my own interest in a man who searches for unsigned bands to champion on his radio show. Xan Phillips has recently seen his Original Showcase show increase from four to six hours due to an incredibly […]

With giant Floridian crabs turning up on the coast of Cornwall, The-Mag was suitably intrigued to find out what else we could expect to arrive from across the pond in the near future. And the answer was simple. Canada seems to have the current knack for producing intense, edgy metal bands, and sitting near the […]

Matt C caught up with Abner to find out a bit more about their music, touring, and their new album. Who are Abner? We are Dave (vocals), Olv (drums), Apple (guitar), and Wilson (bass). How did you get where you are today? We had a really good solid 3 years of gigging and trying to […]

My Passion are a cross between The Cure and electro pop. Originating from London, this five piece artistic band took the time out to answer some questions during one chilly evening down at The Student Union in Luton. Amongst conversations about dodgy tour vans, chicken boxes and eight scattered I-Pods, I could tell this was […]

Back with his first new album – under the name of Babybird – for over 5 years, Stephen Jones explains that in no way has he been idle. What can we expect from you this time round? Well, it’s called ‘Between My Ears There is Nothing but Music’ and its eleven tracks whittled down from […]

Kennedy Sunday could be a band just like any other; trying to get their songs heard, doing the usual rounds of begging people to listen and releasing tracks for fans to hear. However, they’ve decided to rise above all that by getting a bit clever with their next EP. Rather than releasing some samples of […]

Only a few years ago it seemed that sleaze rock was condemned to leading a purely marginal existence – demoralised and in decline, having permanently lost its nerve. But the style, which in the beginning of the 90s was put out of business by the changed corporate policy of major record labels who chose to […]

Mia Riddle made a brief appearance on UK soil last month with a UK tour to promote her latest EP, ‘Tigers’. We stole some of Mia’s time, in between van-breakdowns, overnight journeys, and sleeping on the floor in order to get answers to a few questions. Let’s start from the beginning… Where was the beginning? […]

With a strong sound of their own, a rapidly increasing fan base, critical acclaim from all angles and their debut album, No Love Lost, primed for release on the Red Ink label, I was expecting a very hectic experience when granted an exclusive fifteen minutes with The Rifles. Imagine my relief then, to find the […]

Negotiating my way past the security team, who seem intent on sending me repeatedly between the front door and the stage door for no apparent reason, I eventually get myself into the restricted space behind the stage of Kentish Town’s largest venue by tailgating someone who actually belongs there. Climbing up thirty or forty flights […]

Having found the venue rather more easily than I’d anticipated, I rolled into ‘The Lynott Bar’ at The George in Andover to find I was the first punter of the night. Alone for a few seconds, I appraised my well-decorated musical surroundings before being presented with Andover’s winner of the tallest-spiky hair award, who promptly […]

Canada’s Slave to the Squarewave have been causing quite a storm in Montreal with sell out live performances that have received nothing but praise. But why the hell should the UK give a toss, I hear you cry?! Well considering Canada’s biggest unsigned act will shortly be unleashing their alternative pop sound and electrifying performances […]
