Stop-Stop + supports @The Maze 2/7/2017

Well, after making my way to The Maze in Nottingham during a very warm summers’ day I managed to cool off a bit, after all, I had travelled to see three bands play tonight. Lippstick, a band that were emerging onto the local music scene, in a big way. They’re one of a number of bands waiting to hit the big-time and when you see them perform you’ll see why they’re not far off. Think theatrics meets horror-flicks in terms of band-image. They performed a mixture of both original material as well as a cover Don’t Cha and Sexy Back, re-mastered for a more rock tasting sound. One super fan in the audience got to sing with the lead singer and some point during their set things got interesting when they did another song about hookers. The crowd seemed to like Lippstick. Now I’d seen Parasite before and they just seem to get better every time I hear them perform, though a technical glitch did cause a small problem but other than that it was business as usual. They did attempt a Paradise City cover which actually went down quite well in all fairness. Straight over from Barcelona, Stop-Stop really brought the house down and got the crowds, including myself, towards the edge of the crowd stage. Think Bon Jovi meets Guns & Roses with a bit of Kiss and that’s the best way to sum up these guys. They did a combination of their own material which included a song called Billy No-Mates, which was dedicated to a member of the audience of the same name. They even did one dedicated the front-man’s mum and another to Facebook called Spit It Out. Weird story behind that one. Queen’s song Fat Bottomed Girls got the cover treatment and it true rock fashion a lot of man-flesh was on display. Overall it was a great night.

B.J and The Chicago Kid on the radio

Listening to another as yet amazing R&B record on the radio, Radio 1 to be precise, and what a tune. It’s called Angels/Your Love and the guys’ voice on this song is both soothing and melodic and just seem to cut straight through and is on the Hottest Records on 1Xtra at the moment. If you ever get the chance check it out, it’s worth a listen. Once again America I thank you for some get music
