In Letter Form, MINOAR (reviews)

In Letter Form Not every band has a tragic, poetic story. And most certainly don’t set out to create one as they begin that journey to construct their art. Unfortunately, In Letter Form has had some serious setbacks along the way, but that cannot, and should not, be used to detract us from really diving into their accomplishments. This post-punk project deserves our attention, and … Continue reading In Letter Form, MINOAR (reviews)

40 Years of Bauhaus

A reflective review by Veronica Campbell This really was a glorious night for me. Having seen Bauhaus perform with original members in my early college years (and meeting Peter Murphy and Daniel Ash briefly afterward), this time felt a bit more full circle emotionally. It felt like visiting a fond memory and brought forth a rush of emotions with each song. The show was at … Continue reading 40 Years of Bauhaus

Tiny Gods Who Walk Beside Us

When I set out to complete this review, I had intended for it to be just that–a review. But after learning more about the efforts behind the subject matter, a compilation entitled Tiny Gods Who Walk Beside Us, I had a few questions for the man behind the scenes. Well, actually, it’s a feline behind the scenes. Allow me to explain. Ken, the front man … Continue reading Tiny Gods Who Walk Beside Us

It’s been less than a week since publishing my last set of reviews: I usually take more time in between my writings here on Dark Wave Publications. And that’s because I’m usually very busy. But the pandemic … for some it causes an increase in creativity, for others a lack thereof. For me–I’m floating someplace in the middle, somewhat less of the whatever I was … Continue reading Reviews: Menthüll and jelly the astronaut

MGT

Mark Gemini Thwaite (MGT) is more than a talented guitarist. He moves effortlessly from one project to the next, accomplished. His list of musical contributions seems countless. From Peter Murphy to Gary Numan, and somehow making time for MGT in between, Thwaite is a busy man. MGT is about to take on another tour—this time, with the Lords of Acid. He trades the comforts of … Continue reading MGT

Lefki Symphonia

Lefki Symphonia has a strong history in rock music. They were the first Greek band to make an appearance on MTV—groundbreaking, to say the least, and they spent most of their time between 1986 and the year 2000 on tour. Since the project’s creation in 1984, Lefki Symphonia has amassed a dedicated, strong following that still grows today. Their fifth album is set for release … Continue reading Lefki Symphonia

Calabrese

There’s nothing more intense than witnessing the pure energy of Calabrese performing live. And if you ever have an opportunity to attend one of their shows, I highly recommend that you do. As a band that clings to no genre, their sound can be described as existing someplace between old-school rock-and-roll and the dark realms of horror punk. Brilliantly so. Let’s just say that if … Continue reading Calabrese
