    J GRGRY Twitch Preview

    J GRGRY is playing at Seattle’s Historic Moore Theatre, live on Twitch! Recently, we spoke about artists keeping themselves busy during COVID-19 times: The Church’s Steve Kilbey, New Order’s Peter Hook, LA’s power trio ASHRR are three names that easily come to mind.

    ASHRR – “Otherside”

    When you happen to be in a very creative environment, it is very difficult to stay still. The current pandemic situation has become a challenge for those to overcome when you have ideas you want to express. We have seen many cases in the last year of musicians trying...

    ASHRR – “Dark Eyes”

    In the ‘80s, when Mark Burgess’ band The Chameleons ended most of their gigs with their angry and sometimes hysterical cover version of Alternative TV’s “Splitting In Two”, the Mancunian singer chanted, “We’re living in strange times,” a reference to their third record (Strange Times), but also a recurring...

    J GRGRY – “Don’t Ever Give Up”

    We’ve been following the exploits and latest singles by Seattle’s J GRGRY since late 2018 when he released the feisty “Imagination” (QRO review). There, the character bowed to makes amends to things and people he did wrong, in an up-tempo and flickering melody. Then we had the sumptuous “Dinosaurs”...

    Blak

    It is refreshing to see bands from two different continents and separated by 10,000 miles (at least) joined by their mutual love of pushing the limits of what instrumental rock music can be....
