A look at the Undiscovered Live Music Project 2019

The Undiscovered Live Music Project is a songwriting and performance competition that happens annually in Essex. Run by the Essex Music Development Agency, I’ve seen first hand how the Undiscovered Contest can help launch a music career.

The contest has run since 2009, and is split into bands and solo acts. The prize is 3 day’s recording time at Brentwood’s beloved youth club, The Hermit, a single release, and a music video. I’ve been following the project massively this year, attending all the heats as I took the crown as the Undiscovered Live Music Project’s Best Solo Act 2018, and so have had the privilege to play the heats across Essex this year as a guest act, as well as judging some of the band heats.

Harry Adams

My journey with Undiscovered began when I watched my favourite unsigned band, Dead Baby Birds, compete around 5 years ago, but I didn’t know fully what the project did. In 2017, I met a remarkable artist, Katy Forkings, who is the Undiscovered Best Solo Act 2017, and seeing how well she was doing post the contest, I applied.

I’m not sure how my 2018 would have gone without this contest. It has given me the chance to work with a band, including Dead Baby Birds’ Sam Laughlin and Tristan Embleton, who have now split. It’s also allowed me to network with musicians and I now have a guitarist, Nicole who also performed in Let’s Be Strange, a band who reached the final last year and who are competing in this year’s heats.

Nicole (Lets Be Strange)

I’ve released my debut EP ‘Anaphase’ on disc, and my debut single ‘Accessory’ with my next single, sponsored by undiscovered ‘Time’. I have attended most of the Undiscovered heats this year. I’m focusing on the Undiscovered Live Music Project Bands Final, which gained its last band on the line on Saturday 23rd February 2019.

Undiscovered travels across Essex to find its bands with heats in Chelmsford, Southend, Colchester, Basildon and for under 18s, Brentwood. I’ve been lucky to headline these nights as the Undiscovered Solo Winner 2018, and have also been asked to judge.

Our Undiscovered Live Music Project Band Final 2019 will be held at Colchester Arts Centre and will feature the following bands. The Waterfalls, from Southend, who raised the roof at their heat in the Chinnerys. An energised performance with a strong fan base gave them their ticket to the final. Rolled Up Sleeves, from the Basildon heat, create sophisticated rock music and have a stage presence I struggled to take my eyes away from. Unit 33, from Colchester’s Three Wise Monkeys, have a strong vocalist and rock arrangement behind them. Children of the Fuzz, took the last win for the final spot on Saturday 23rd February 2019. They’re a funky band with a strong rapport and image and I look forward to seeing them again in the final.

Finally, our wildcard this year is Vivacity, who also performed at the Southend Chinnerys heat. An indie and current band with a lead singer who plays an acoustic guitar, unlike the other bands in the final. I really enjoyed this band and have since listened to their recordings on Spotify which I found to be beautiful musically.

The Undiscovered Live Music Project’s Band Final will take place on Saturday 16th March at Colchester Arts Centre and the headlining guest act will be this year’s Undiscovered Live Music Project’s Solo Winner, my successor, Chameleon who I’m so proud of for gaining her title.

Chameleon

With this year’s competition still wide open, there is no saying who is going to be victorious this time around.

Slam Dunk’s Fireball Stage is an early 2000s Pop Punk kids dream

It’s not often a festival captures a specific atmosphere, timeframe or niche so perfectly unless it’s accidentally stumbled upon during a time when a scene seems to be naturally growing anyway. But Slam Dunk have put together a great line up for one of their stages this year that will be like a snapshot into one of the most beloved alternative scenes and a golden age for the bands in it. The line up is definitely a nostalgia fuelled one and that’s why we love it, but that doesn’t mean that the bands feel out of place at the festival either, they just fit so perfectly on this specific stage together that it’s created something quite exciting.

The bands chosen for the Fireball Stage are for some the main attraction to the event, capturing a time where Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater was the greatest game to invite friends over for, P-Rock still had a channel on Sky and the last time our fringes went up with strong gel before they swept to the side of our faces and then disappeared altogether. The stage even has it’s own host with MC Lars guiding the Pop Punk kids through the entertainment.

Bowling for Soup

Headlining the stage are Pop Punk legends Bowling for Soup, which could have been so different after the
band had initially performed a UK Farewell Tour in 2013 stating that personal and financial issues had meant that touring the UK was not as viable anymore. But after a festival appearance in 2014 the band announced they were coming back to the UK for a tour in 2015 because they missed it so much. The bands “Drunk Enough To Dance” was a huge hit in the British Pop Punk scene with hits such as “Girl All the Bad Guys Want” and “Emily” that joined the already popular lead single “The Bitch Song” from their previous album on the UK alternative music channel playlists. The band enjoyed more success in the UK in the years to follow with “Almost“, “1985” and “High School Never Ends“.Girlallthebadguyswantgirl

Less Than Jake

One of the pioneers of the Ska Punk scene will be taking to the stage this weekend too with their classic upbeat tunes. “All My Best Friends Are Metalheads” is one of the most popular songs played by Pop Punk DJs at Alternative clubs in the UK and always gets the crowd going. Having been released all the way back in 1998 the song still helps gain LTJ fans through the younger generations as well as their classic “The Science of Selling Yourself Short” which was apparently a last minute addition to their 2003 release “Anthem“. The band have always had a special connection with the UK and in particular with the legendary London Astoria in Tottenham Court Road, a now demolished legendary venue that the band felt like they were attending a “home-coming” at whenever they played to their London faithful there. The band released a live album of a live performance at the London venue titled “Live from Astoria” in 2016, 15 years after it had been recorded.

Reel Big Fish

Another big name from the Ska Punk scene to join them is Reel Big Fish. The Californian band also made it big at the tail end of the 90s with their huge hit “Sell Out” . The appeared in the 1998 film BASEketball performing in the stands to hype up the crowd with their song “Beer“. Another huge success for RBF came with their brilliant cover of “Take On Me“, which is one of the best songs to shout out of tune with your buddies as you try not to spill the beer you’ve just paid too much for in the club. The band co-headlined a UK Tour with Less Than Jake in 2014 which saw the two Ska Punk icons team up with Zebrahead just like they will on an even more stacked line up this weekend.

Zebrahead

One of my favourites on this years Slam Dunk line up has got to be Zebrahead.  They are a band that perfectly blend genres such as Pop Punk with Rap and even hints of a heavier and almost Metal like feel with songs like “Falling Apart“, a song featured on the original WWE Smackdown! vs. Raw video game in 2004 along with another classic of theirs “Alone“. The band does have a more lighthearted side though with Pop Punk classics such as “Anthem” which comes from their first album with Matty Lewis, who brought his own unique style to the band but could still bust out the stuff originally performed by Justin Mauriello such as “Playmate of the Year“, “Hello Tomorrow” and “Rescue Me“. The first of those three is definitely something you will enjoy live if you are a fan of the bands cheeky and fun style. The constant in the band has been Ali Tabatabaee, who has brought a diverse Rap style to the group that blends perfectly with the traditional Pop Punk sound they do so well. This is one band where the two vocalists compliment each other perfectly.

Goldfinger

You know when I mentioned Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater? Well this next band will take you back to sitting on your bedroom floor eating too many Skittles and trying to pull off those awesome combos. Goldfinger are most known for their tracks “Superman” which featured on the first THPS and “Spokesman” which featured on THPS4. I can still hear the board scraping and the timer counting down when I hear these songs to this day. The band also released a well known cover of “99 Red Balloons” that really gets a party going, the cover was featured in “Eurotrip” and “Another Teen Movie“, two films that really stick with Pop Punk fans of that generation.

Mad Caddies

Another Ska Punk band set to take on the Fireball Stage are Mad Caddies. The band’s most popular songs “State of Mind” and “Backyard” come from their 2007 album “Keep It Going” and really capture their reggae influence. The pacing of most Mad Caddies songs are quite different to the other bands that will feature on the Fireball Stage, but the tempo change will not signal a change in quality with songs that send out infectious grooves and heartfelt lyrics. The band that was formed all the way back in 1995 have only got better and better as time has gone on.

madcaddieslive

The Ataris

One theme throughout this list is the presence of amazing cover songs and The Ataris may have one of the best with an amazing Pop Punk rendition of the 1984 Don Henley classic “The Boys of Summer“. The famed cover came from the bands 2003 album “So Long, Astoria” which also featured successful singles “In This Diary” and “The Saddest Song“. The band also had one of their songs featured on the Spider-Man 2 Soundtrack in 2004 with “The Night The Lights Went Out In NYC“.

Fenix TX

We come to our final band on the Fireball Stage this year, Fenix TX. The Texas hailing band are one that put their stamp on the early 2000s Skate culture. Their classic “Threesome” was a success in the UK and is a song that instantly takes many back to the early 2000s when they hear it. Break ups and side projects have meant that the band has had three different spells of performing together, with the most recent starting with their 2009 return. The band originally got recognition after touring with Blink-182 in 1999. The band also had a hit with “All My Fault” which featured Mark Hoppus prominently in the music video.

fenixtxsolo

Slam Dunk Festival 2017 will take place throughout May starting with the 27th in Birmingham at the NEC, 28th in Leeds at the First Direct Arena, and 29th in Hatfield at The Forum, tickets are available for the Midlands event here and the full line up over 8 stages is in the image below.

We will be at Slam Dunk South in Hatfield this year so if you’re about then make sure you come and say hi to us, we will be filming an episode of the Queue & A so don’t be shy!

RETROspect: Fall Out Boy – “Infinity on High” (10 Years On)

It’s time to squeeze into your skinny jeans, sweep the fringe forward and smear on the guyliner (you know you did it guys) because it’s time to step back to 2007 and look at Infinity on High, Fall Out Boy’s third studio album which celebrates it’s 10 year anniversary on February 6th this year.

Upon release Infinity on High became a major success for the band worldwide becoming their first number one album in the US and debuting at number three here in the UK.  Having sold over 2 million copies, going platinum just over a month after it’s release and receiving positive reviews from critics it’s clear Infinity on High is the album that would launch Fall Out Boy onto the next level of their careers-until a poorly received fourth album, Folie a Deux, (although I would advise anyone to listen back to this album as I think it’s actually quite underrated) leading to a multi year hiatus would derail the group until their musical rebirth in 2013 with their 5th album, Save Rock and Roll followed by American Beauty/American Psycho in 2015.

What is as clear today as a decade ago is that the album is a clear step away from the group’s previous albums, the fact that Jay-Z is the first voice you hear on the album really sets this off and from there the remaining songs showcase more experimentation, either with use of instruments not heard on previous efforts or a switch from the standard ‘pop punk’ sound fans would’ve been used to hearing from the band at that point.

Kicking off with Thriller the album then proceeds to leap from one hit single to another with FOB classics such as This Ain’t a Scene,It’s an Arms Race and Thnks fr th Mmrs making their appearance on this album.

Whilst many of the songs on the album are an indication of FOB’s ability to write a catchy tune – you’d have to be quite picky to find a total dud on the album, it is frontman Patrick Stump’s vocal ability that shines through across each track as he became more confident and comfortable in the role beginning to showcase his true range and giving a glimpse of what was to come in the future.

The Fall Out Boy of 2017 has clearly evolved from the group that began way back in 2001 and this is the album, whilst remaining in touch with their trademark sound, where that evolution and transition from being considered ‘just another emo band’ to growing into the mature pop/rock sound FOB produce now began.

Having grown with the band as they matured it is now a blessing to be able to listen without having a fringe to straighten but that’s just me personally…

Infinity on High is the album that showcased just what Fall Out Boy are capable of and it still holds up as an intensely enjoyable, fun listen 10 years on.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD “SURPRISE-RELEASE” NEW ALBUM ‘THE STAGE’

a7x-2016

Avenged Sevenfold have become the first ever rock band to drop an unannounced album as both a digital and physical release.

The band announces the release of the album immediately following their groundbreaking global virtual reality event.

The Stage, is A7X‘s seventh studio album, and their first for Capitol Records.

The Southern California-based quintet (vocalist M. Shadows, guitarists Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance, bassist Johnny Christ and drummer Brooks Wackerman) revealed the news at midnight eastern, surprising the millions of fans who were watching their live-streamed performance from the rooftop of the Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, CA.

The groundbreaking event saw the band give a 3D/360-degree live-streamed virtual reality performance, enabling fans around the globe to view the show on Universal Music Group’s newly released VRTGO VR platform, powered by VRLIVE’s advanced technology, and experience Avenged Sevenfold’s electrifying set as if they were there for this first-of-its-kind immersive event.

Fans attended the event in-person, flooding the streets and sidewalks around the tower to experience a concert amplified by augmented reality (AR) technology, which intensifies real-world environmental elements with computer-generated sensory input such as graphics, video and sound to enhance the live experience. VRLIVE streamed the event to 50 Samsung Gear VR headsets on the ground level of the event for fans to virtually transport themselves to the stage. Afterward, the band celebrated with fans, taking photos and sharing stories about the secretive release.

The Stage is the follow-up to Avenged Sevenfold’s 2013 release, Hail To The King, which entered The Billboard 200 at No. 1. Co-produced by the band and Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool), The Stage is a work of immense scope and ambition, featuring 11 panoramic tracks tied together by an Artificial Intelligence theme. Inspired by the writings of Carl Sagan and Elon Musk, the album is the band’s first thematic release. While the term “AI” conjures up images of robots and fantasy films, the band steers clear of a science fiction storyline. Instead, the album sees them taking a futurist’s look at the accelerated rate at which technology’s intelligence is expanding and what that means—good and bad—for the future.

The album’s epic 15-minute-plus closing track, “Exist,” features a guest appearance by award-winning astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson giving a spoken word performance he penned specifically for the album.

Working with new label Capitol Records, the band’s plans for a stealth release were months in the making, and kicked off a few weeks ago with a guerrilla campaign that saw projections of their deathbat symbol mysteriously appearing on landmarks around the world. Fans and media reported sightings and shared images from Paris, Sydney, London, Japan and Berlin, to name but a few. Anticipation and conspiracy theories reached fever pitch when rumours regarding supposed album titles and a December release date began to spread.
The album also marks the band’s first release with acclaimed drummer Brooks Wackerman, known for his work with Bad Religion and whose discography also includes albums from Tenacious D and Suicidal Tendencies.
