Arms & Hearts is just about to head out on a European tour with Andrew Cream, but he's got a couple of new tracks to share with us before he sets off for the mainland. Released today on Under The Bridge Records, The Jaded Captain is a digital only double-A... Continue reading

Photo: © 2016 Tom Langford 'Cold Coffee In Cracked Mugs' is the latest single from Patrick Craig and we're incredibly happy to be debuting the video, exclusively, here on The Ruckus. The track is taken from Craig's forthcoming full-length True Story and is one of the more cutting and powerful... Continue reading

I turned 30 this year (gasp). I worked out shortly before setting off for The Offspring that I was 16 years old when I last saw them play a headline show. I suppose I was quite interested to see if I still liked the band that I spent a great... Continue reading

Photo: Joshua Radin at KOKO, Camden © 2015 Anthony Barlow I’ve seen Joshua Radin and Cary Brothers several times before, but always separately. So when Radin announced he was taking, old college friend and Hotel Café alum, Cary Brothers on a US tour, in support of his new album Onwards... Continue reading

Four Year Strong at The Waterfront, Norwich © 2015 Charlie Wallis “Everyone’s ill but it should be a good night anyway.” Is what the guy on merch told me as I was waiting for the first band to come on at the Four Year Strong show the other night in... Continue reading

The HDM Beer Shop in Huddersfield feels like the kind of place built for Franz Nicolay. Compact but comfortable, laid back but focused, with a certain sense of expanded horizons about the range of local and world ales they stock. The heads of hand-drawn monkeys (the HDM in the name)...

Over the last few weeks I have had the privilege of being privy to an advanced copy of the new record by Norwich post-punk rockers Darwin and the Dinosaur, A Thousand Ships. I’ve done a lot of work with these boys over the past few years but this new record... Continue reading

Here we are, then. Re-Mit. The most recent studio album by The Fall, something that seemed like a fevered dream eleven months ago. I even remember Re-Mit coming out and reading some of the reviews at the time (I mean, shit, it was only a year and a half ago),... Continue reading

Rancid, Dropkick Murphys and Refused are set to headline next year's Punk Rock Bowling. The festival, now in it's 17th year, will take place from May 22nd - 25th in downtown Las Vegas and the lineup promises yet another great showcase of punk rock, ska and other alternative music. Alongside... Continue reading

Last week felt a little bit Fall-heavy, what with a decent album and a gig and so on, so I’m determined to have a little time off. Get away for a bit, like. My partner and I are off on holiday for a couple of days so, before we go,... Continue reading

Woah holy shit! We have finally, finally made it! Forty eight weeks, just about eleven full months, twenty eight studio albums, countless members coming and going and, at long last, we reach the current Fall line up on Your Future Our Clutter. Well. Almost – they add an extra member... Continue reading

I really can’t believe that there’s only seven Fall records left on my list. I mean, eight, if you include the live album that came out a couple weeks ago that I’m planning to squeeze in to the last three days before 2014 is up, but yeah. Only four more... Continue reading

The first track on Are You Are Missing Winner is called “Jim’s The ‘Fall’”, presumably in reference to new bass player Jim Watts. Being a bassist for The Fall means forever living in Steve Hanley’s shadow, I guess – before he sacked him, I think Mark E. Smith usually spoke... Continue reading

Have you ever walked through the centre of Manchester on a Saturday afternoon and seen that really fucking weird busking band? I saw them for the first time in a while yesterday, whilst on my way down to Manchf3ster. You know the one I mean, right? They’re usually on the... Continue reading

Are You Are Missing Winner. Okay. Like. Okay. I have briefly studied linguistics enough to know that language and grammar are fluid and ever changing, and that correcting people all time time is just a massive downer for everyone, but that’s just fucking ridiculous. That sentence makes no sense. Have... Continue reading

I saw Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) twice in two days earlier this year. Although technically a two piece husband-and-wife duo, it’s truly Keith Latinen’s outlet at heart, and he was borrowing members of his tour buddies The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer... Continue reading

I can’t remember how in-depth I’ve gone previously in regards to how I chose the records for this project. I’ve definitely not been making it up as I go along – the main reason it started was because some friends and I came up with the idea, set an arbitrary... Continue reading

The Afghan Whigs cover of The Police tune ‘Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic’ seems an awkward choice at first, the calypso drenched paean to crushed desire and unkempt love in the sun doesn’t fit with the bands oeuvre at first glance. Play it however and all such thoughts... Continue reading

Twin Atlantic have forced themselves to the forefront of British alternative rock and people are starting to take notice. Yet another band who drew in the crowds at Reading and Leeds, they've just released their third album to massive chart success. The Great Divide reached number eight in the UK... Continue reading

I think I was looking forward to hearing The Unutterable more than any other Fall album so far. The Marshall Suite was unexpectedly great, and I was really hoping that the next record from the newly-formed Fall lineup would be bigger, better and stronger after a year spent playing together,...
