Out of time on the opening hit. Some of the drummer's fills a little muddled at the start. I'll put this down to nerves. You all got way tighter as the set went on. Competent + confident. Vox careful with pitching in the high bits, hard on the ears! Sound like Ozzy + Bruce D's lovechild. Your hits at the end were spot on.

Professionalism: 3.5/5

Careful! Feedback before you start! Some guitar feedback as well. How high is your distortion knob?!

Songwriting: 3.5/5

Lots of great guitar interplay + harmonies throughout. The vocal melodies didn't work on a few parts (song 1 chorus + song 3 etc.). Lovely solo in Juliet. Probably should have played it last, easily your best song. Really interesting middle bit in song 3 leading into the outro. Repetitive v quickly, does keep going, and going. Vocal melodies could be more interesting too...

Creativity:3/5

Widdle widdle, chug chug. But that's not a bad thing. Hearing a lot of different influences. I'm hearing Sabbath, I'm hearing QOTSA, I'm hearing post-noughties Arctic Monkeys. A lot going on in the songs but very clear influences.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 4.5/5

You definitely have the audience on your side. Still persevering with that BLOODY SHIRT! Love it. Great movement round the stage. Clearly enjoying the moment. Bopping along. You do look at you instruments + clapping a lot though.

Overall: 18/25

A really slick performance. Brash, confident compelling. You found a formula for your songs and follow it to the T. Was expecting more though.

Bassist looked utterly terrified! Not sure if the slaps were required. Stage right clean tone was a little low, couldn’t make it out. Felt like lower vocals were a little wobbly as well. However, you were tight and play well together. But more practice and you’ll be solid.

Professionalism: 3/5

Sorry for making you wait! I feel like the big stage got the better of you.

Songwriting: 2.5/5

Some interesting guitar parts, mainly the first song + intro to song 3 + choruses. Vocal melodies weren’t particularly memorable, higher deliveries way more interesting. Not sure about some of the song structures, nothing really stuck out. Gimme a chorus to remember!

Creativity: 2.5/5

Pretty generic alt-rock, nothing particularly ground-breaking. Chord progressions pretty basic. Bit of a Muse vibe, especially n song 3. Improved slightly in song 4, mixed it up a bit.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 2.5/5

Could tell you guys were nervous / overdoing it a bit with confidence. Relaxo por favor! A bit weak crowd talk, happens with nerves.

Overall: 13/25

At this moment in time, there is a gulf between you and the other bands. HOWEVER, practice makes perfect. There’s definitely something in there. Keep refining your writing, you could go far in this competition next year. You’re a talented bunch of chaps. Just not quite there yet.

Great clarity, can hear everything properly. Crisp. Thanks! Dat guitar tone tho. Hi hats sounded a bit random here + there. But boy do you hit those drums. Taking the bars for a walk. Other than the same dodgy hi-hats really tight as a unit. Bass tone a bit gruff.

Professionalism: 5/5

Finding this category pretty much spot on.

Songwriting: 3/5

You did that stop start thing quite a lot in song 1. Gets tiresome. Good variation of riffing + solos. Some of the key bits were odd, didn’t complement song 2 very well. Song 3. Yes. Much brighter and more variation great pace. Song 4. Are you Eddie Van Halen? Fuck yes you are.

Creativity: 4/5

Really picked up in song 3, lots of shit going on towards the end of the set. There’s a slight 80’s vibe which is oddly refreshing. Breaking the mould a bit.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 3/5

It’s fun up to a point, but you’re not giving the crowd anything to work with. Your facial expressions are pretty lols. Lots of looking at each other.

Overall: 19/25

Not surprised it’s called the JH XP. Pretty much just a vehicle for how great the Bandsoc pres is. Not saying you other guys weren’t good but JH is miles above the rest. Super tight + polished.

Everyone solid + confident on their instruments. Can’t really hear the keyboard or bass very well. Lost a bit in the mix. Centre guitar absolute standout. No wonder you’re in 3 bands in the final. Vox could be a little growlier for this music but very professionally delivered. Drums perfect! Less is more.

Professionalism: 4/5

Nothing to fault here. Can’t complain

Songwriting: 3/5

1) Dark and brooding, lots of soul in this song, really great build up to the solo, for a very epic outro.

2) Same plinky plonky bits, not very eventful

3) Bit clichéd lyrics, but another emotive number that utilises all instruments very eloquently. Again, standout solo guitar. Does go on a bit, it feels like the sax has been included for the sake of it. I feel like making love to each and every one of you. Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing…

4) Quite bland, very formulaic.

Overall, some really good ideas amongst the “chaff”. Let down by drawn out + unnecessary parts.

Creativity: 3/5

Influences clearly worn on sleeves. Would like to have heard a bit more keys. Mix it up a bit more!

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 4/5

“We want to bring it down”… Yawn. HOWEVER, you’re all neatly engaging and can tell you love playing this music + that oozes into the audience. You had them hooked. Thank you for not wearing sunglasses guys…

Overall: 19/25

Very tight + polished performance. Never easy to open the night. Would like to have heard more of “you” though. Bit underwhelming in some places, same great bits though.

Great guitar linkup throughout. Bass tone sat so perfectly between the guitars. Trumpet was the cherry + sprinkles on the top of the sundae. Drums were purposefully sparse at the start and this added to the whole experience. Some peaks in places that were a little uncomfortable on the ears.

Professionalism: 4/5

Can’t fault anything here. Really profesh. Some feedback in places, but dealt with well. Bassist looked a bit lost at the end though when not playing anything. Loved the walkout at the end.

Songwriting: 4/5

SUCH EMOTION!!! Fantastic build ups, loved the harmonics, woven in nicely with the rest of the band. Up + down x10, Jesus the trumpet!! Wonderful segue into the second piece, good use of samples. Octaver worked really well, gave the piece a lot more of a flatter sound.

Creativity: 4/5

So much going on, lots of variety. You’re like a more chilled out Tycho, in parts, a more aggressive PSB in others (check out the race for space)

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 5/5

Wonderfully introverted, you could have heard a pin drop. Never seen an audience captivated like that before. The videos behind you were a great touch, added to the whole experience.

Overall: 21.5/25

I’m trying to avoid using the terms “wall of sound” and “soundscape” but wow. The whole thing just worked. Great ideas, interesting use of light + shade throughout, played with the emotions. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Best drummer in the comp. Interesting fills throughout + tighter than a ducky backside (?) Careful when singing dual vocals same octave, one of you was flat in a few places… Stage left guitar, wonderful tone + bopping along. Very tight as a unit. You’re even playing well on the floor Mr. Bassist?!

Professionalism: 5/5

I hate the term “real band” but you guys ooze “real band”. Even setting up, you’re in the zone and everyone is watching.

Songwriting: 3.5/5

Thumping riffs throughout, really interesting lyrics, best of the night so far, little repetitive in places. Great build up to the cathartic outros, lots of screaming. A lot of screams. The intricate clean guitar parts worked really well amongst the mess (song 3). Your songs carry a lot of meaning and it’s clear to see.

Creativity: 4/5

Britpop, slacker rock, whatever you want to call it, you guys carry off this shit really well. Angsty, angry, emotional, so much energy + variety in your songs, interesting change of tempo in song 3.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 5/5

Jumping about, on the floor, by far the most powerful band, you command the stage. It’s your domain. You own it.

Overall: 22/25

You guys have worked bloody hard + it shows. A wonderful wall of sound, thumping headbanging tunes. Absolutely stupendous. Just be careful, there's a fine line between giving a shit and playing shit. You tread it so finely. But whatever. Good Job.

Artist: Musing Blue

Musicianship/skill: 3/5

Very impressive lead guitar work upfront, competently backed by rhythm section. Nice booming lower end! Keys are a little intrusive at times – slightly clunkily performed in the bouncier tracks. Smooth vocals, but could perhaps do with a little more of a powerhouse upfront! Overall though, solid.

Professionalism: 3/5

Cool and confident solo intro – once it all gets going, each player knows their part in the overall sound so it all stacks up well (especially strong in the slow jam). Great immersion from lead guitarist. SAX SOLO! A competent jam band on the whole – they just lack spark.

Songwriting: 2.5/5

Swampy one! Riffy one! Slow one! Very well-observed and/or well-versed in this style – all the requisite moments are present and correct. In a word though, functional. Nothing leaps out at you or particularly excites.

Creativity: 1.5/5

Very difficult to do anything new here – this is such a well worn formula that pretty much any shift or tic immediately seems familiar! Not enough invention in the arrangements to make this really interesting, sadly.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 2.5/5

Fuck me, even the mid-song audience applause is in the right place! Not a lot to say here – ticks all the boxes in terms of getting the foot tapping or head nodding, but again never quite catches fire.

Overall: 12.5/25

If they ever remake the film “road house”, expect a call! This was a nice start to the evening, but rather uninspired on the whole. Clearly it’s difficult to reinvent this genre, but ultimately bar bands like this are a dime a dozen. Good then – but not “good”, if you get my meaning. Ultimately, this needs to be absolutely smoking to really excel!

Rank: 6th


Judge: Chris Carter

Artist: Liquid Skin

Musicianship/skill: 3/5

Haven’t quite mastered their constituent parts perfectly, so it’s a bit clanking on the whole. The funkier interludes are where they come a little unstuck – the wall of guitars approach suits them much better! Vocals also a little flat and lack character.

Professionalism: 2.5/5

No messing about, but they seem a little ill at ease on such a big stage at this point. However, instrument tones are well thought out and executed, and the singer cuts a convincing presence.

Songwriting: 2/5

A little unformed at this stage – it’s big and ballsy with a hint of Oasis in the first song. However, they don’t quite know their sound yet, and so haven’t nailed down where they want to go melodically – and the second track Is fairly tuneless. As was the third. And the the fourth, for that matter…

Creativity: 3/5

Some interesting chops and changes, together with an odd attempt to marry indie rock’n’roll to a Chilli Peppers funk vibe. It’s not entirely successful, but they have a good go!

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 2.5/5

Confident showing from the frontman, who has a Liam Fray (Courteeners)-type aura. It’s a shame that the others aren’t as enthusiastic, and the band seems to lose confidence after a rousing start. They all stay rather static in their positions and it never really comes alive.

Overall: 13/25

Very obviously a fresher band, but one with a fair bit of swagger who are clearly worth keeping an eye on! Fundamentally though their songs lack definition – the first track definitely felt like the way to go on this front. They’ve got ideas though, and can clearly play – be interesting to see them same time next year to find out how they’ve come along.

Musicianship/skill: 3.5/5

Frontman is clearly the coolest nerdy-lookin’ guy ever – he owns this without even trying. Vocals aren’t quite as confident or effortless as his axe-work, but he does well in a difficult register! Band are decent – the odd awkward moment here and there, but they hold it all together and generate a big sound.

Professionalism: 3/5

Okay – who forgot to hit their overdrive pedal before playing the first chord?! Bit of a shocker of an entrance from the band after such a cool start from frontman. Overall, this is never quite the monstrous wig-out it needs to be – however, they know all the moves to pull to get the crowd on their side.

Songwriting: 3/5

QOTSA & Led Zep vibes in the first song, with a twang of Iron Maiden in the vocals. ZZ Top boogie in second with a bit of Thin Lizzy… influences worn firmly on their sleeves throughout, but not without moments of primitive glory! Some ace riffs scattered throughout, plus a few headbanging moments.

Creativity: 3/5

Quite a lot of noodling here – which is awesome in its own right, but not always at the service of the song. Equally, the chopping and changing of the first track doesn’t amount to a great deal, and often times this is all a little by-rote – nonetheless, it does what it needs to, when it needs to.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 3/5

Grow in confidence once they get going – bassist in particular is having a rockin’ good time. It’s still all a little polite on the whole, and never quite bursts loose the way you really want it to. They’re having fun though and this sort of music always goes over well with a crowd.

Overall: 15.5/25

I once described this lot as “a great guitarist in search of a band”, and am happy to report this is no longer the case! A decent little classic rock throwback with a few tricks up their sleeve – it’s just a shame that it’s all so familiar on the whole.

Rank: 4th

Musicianship/skill: 4.5/5

Proper rhythm section - totally in with one another and generating a considerable groove. Guitarist - well he's just showing off now really, isn't he? Keys tastefully placed to add shading. Clearly all very good at what they do and that shows as a band unit.

Professionalism: 4.5/5

They over-reach themselves very slightly in the showier sections(Bassist can't quite pull off those Flea-esque runs just yet), but have a strong chemistry together which allows this to stay firmly glued together on the whole. Rehearsed as fuck, and clearly this isn't easy to perform.

Songwriting: 2/5

As with Musing Blue, basically just a jam band, albeit an impressive one. It's well, it's muzak really isn't it? Not sure I'd particularly want to listen to this or that much of what's on display is embellishment for it's own sake.

Creativity: 4/5

Showy! Also kind of show-offy - not that there's anything wrong with that in it's own right, but it's not really in the service of anything particularly notable. Which slightly pulls this score down, I suspect.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 3/5

Audiences attention s held throughout - mostly out of sheer bafflement at what the band are pulling off!
They make this look much easier than it is, while still working up a seat - no mean feet.

Overall: 18/25

Clearly a bunch of good musicians, and a really solid band of their type with considerable chops. Only on a couple of occasions though did a really memorable passage rear it's head - the rest is flamboyant and confidently executed, but so much bluster musically.

DRUMS! This guy has the same joy in hitting things as the guy from Cloud Nothings. Awesome! Not one of them can sing, and it doesn't matter - the cumulative effect is perfect, even if the mic technique isn't. Easily the sum of it's parts and then some.

Professionalism: 4.5/5

BIG Sound - look, sound and feel like a proper band. Fantastic chemistry generated onstage which more than compensates for the raggedy edges. Professionally anti-professional - they turn underachieving into an art.

Songwriting: 4/5

Time stopped for them at 1993 - and that my friends is the way to this mans heart. Slacker indie rock with all the right moves - some great lyrical soundbites and strong control melodies. First and last songs were real standouts.

Creativity: 3/5

Hooky and melodic tunes, which are treated with care in the arrangements. There's nothing really showy here, but there doesn't need to be. Each player is in service to the songs.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 5/5

Livewire frontman is always  watchable, but fuck almighty do these boys rock! Everyone gives it their all and they're a joy to watch. Genuinely feels like watching a touring act.

Overall: 20.5/25

Is your band name a reference to Danny Glover's exit in the film Witness? If it is, do I get a prize for getting this obscure reference? Anyway... BAND WITH A FUTURE ALERT! They know indie rock's immediate history - and may just be the ones who write it's next chapter. Stick at it, sirs - you're on to something here.

Artist: Lift Club

Musicianship/skill: 4.5/5

Some real skill from lead guitarist on tapping section, but everyone plays their part. Rhythm guitar very solid, as was bass. Drums had a real "feel" which kept this from becoming rhythmically frigid. It all fits together perfectly in totality - not much to fault here.

Professionalism: 4.5/5

Really inspired marriage of sound and image, for starters. A lot of the effectiveness of this depends on the consistency of a lot of different tones and their placement against one another - on each front, they absolutely nailed it. They're clearly very well-rehearsed, and inter-band communication is strong!

Songwriting: 4/5

Beautiful and immersive - proper "shut your eyes" music which moved seamlessly from section to section. Despite it's dreamy, lulling feel, it never became boring, each part was the logical extension of what came before. Only real weakness is not quite knowing how to end each track.

Creativity: 4/5

Intricately arranged with strong attention to detail - all the instruments parts lock together and play off one another/ Builds well and keeps adding where necessary while also knowing when and where to back off. A couple of neat melodic turns from the bassist here and there.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 3.5/5

Thank God for the Visuals! They're not the most exciting band to watch, but they held the audience rapt. There is potential to make this really mesmerising with practice, but they're not quite there yet - it's not quite effortless enough at this stage.

Overall: 20.5/25

Not the most original band - it's difficult to really bring much new to the post-rock soundscape type front - but a very competent band of their type. Definitely the best instrumental student band I've seen in a good long while, and really wonderful to listen to. With a full on laser and light show, and the ability to completely lose themselves in what they#re doing, they could be seriously impressive.

Well crafted tones and parts. Felt almost like listening to CD. Very Tight.

Professionalism: 5/5

I felt like I was watching a pro act. Timely, mastery of equipment, skill.

Songwriting: 4.5/5

Emotive, long drawn out sections, with slow progressions and development, with the occasional contrast of loud noise while still managing to deliver the occasional hook with brass or glock. Well crafted project for the genre.
Creativity: 4/5

All the great marks of post rock/prog instrumental whilst delay/reverb guitars are the norm, the use of brass and glock, and the visuals was a breath of fresh air. Next step, maybe start looking at keys, modulation and different scales or time signatures.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 5/5

Hard to pin down great "stage presence" for this music, no interaction can be as effective as chatting between every song. Regardless, I felt the presence, worked for me.

Instruments were, for the most part, spot on, playing parts well and tight whilst moving around the stage. Few mistakes but recovered well. Vocals were a little worse, I got the rough style of vocals but just too unpolished for my liking.

Professionalism: 3/5

Still a way to improve on performance professionalism, control, restraint when needed. Although technical difficulties held up the start, it looked like you handled it well.

Songwriting: 4/5

Hitting us with an onslaught of guitar and shout vocals, I could still pick up structures and a hook buried within. Maybe too many sections, songs too long and chaotic at times, nice use of irregular bar lengths.

Creativity: 4/5

At times grungy, sometimes a little pop-punky, sometimes a little britpop/indie. With a helping of angst. Executed better, think it could all come together well. Would go down well in studio for some of the songs.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 5/5

Visually entertaining, you guys enjoyed yourselves and makes for a good experience, although untamed at times, the raw energy is great.

Overall: 19/25

Rough around the edges. Especially vocals, but I can hear how great it could all sound in an ideal situation. A nice balance of alternative and catchy vocals. I kind of love/hate it, but love it more.

Slick through song changes. On and off without hassle. Avoided awkward guitar switches with drum solo, nicely played!

Songwriting: 4/5

Although a well covered genre. Songs didn't stagnate, a good balance of instrumental sections and vocal parts, kept things interesting. Great use of dynamics and taking advantage of bands various musical abilities.

Creativity: 2/5

Although by no means very original, the creativity in the songs was there, from the southern rock vibes of song 1, to the blues/rockabilly and then slow tempo blues. Not easy to write that varied.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 4/5

Loved the change. Slow moody tracks. The band played it cool, up the tempo and they start having fun. You can take it further, I would like to see you immerse yourself in the music.

Professionalism: 4/5

Yep, tight, tidy and punctual, nothing more to say.

Songwriting: 3/5

Very challenging, I felt like I was in the middle of a John Mayer set where they jam for 20 minutes, or just some intro music to a music tech video. I wanted a song to kick in, awesome, but would be killer with a massive soulful voice on it.

Creativity: 3/5

Creative? Yeah. Lot of melodic exploration in feel, groove and scale. I don't know this area of music too well, but I would take a guess it's all typical stuff.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 2/5

This is a fairly self indulgent style of music and tends to fall into the realm of just playing at people. With little interaction, which will appeal to some but not others. Musos will love this, perfect for music exhibitions.

Overall: 17/25

Fun, technicality and musicianship brilliant. But limited reach and appeal. I would love to hear a killer singer on some of the songs, but maybe I just don't get it. As a musician myself myself, I love it. As a consumer, not so much.

Musicianship/skill: 3/5

Good enough to get the job done, whilst not showing massive technical ability, you did enough for what the songs needed. Well rehearsed but possibly could be tighter in transitions. A little more work on vocal control, or ask sound guy to use a compressor.

Professionalism: 3/5

Although I didn't think your sound and music is on a professional level, the flow of the set and the way you conducted yourself was on point.

Songwriting: 3/5

Takes me back to my days at rock clubs as a teen. Typical songwriting for the genre, nice riffs with the occasional nice hook but ultimately nothing that keeps the hook or verse memorable.

Creativity: 3/5

Once again, I have been hearing this music for years, not original but you keep things moving. Riffs progressing with the occasional unusual twist.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 4/5

Generally good, and the crowd liked it. Try to avoid switching from Rocking to standing still. Mr Bass Player was on point, entertaining to watch, not dressing like a typical rock band, I think I like that.

Overall: 16/25

Not everyone is going to breaking new ground in music(editors note: - Has Anyone Really Been Far Even as Decided to Use Even Go Want to do Look More Like?)  But doesn't mean you can't have fun and have people love it, which is what you guys did.

Did a good job coming over with a professional manner. Mr bass man, face the audience and not the drummer! It feels like you're in a practice room otherwise.

Songwriting: 2/5

Couldn't exactly pinpoint what you are, or are trying to be. Songs were overpowered by players overplaying parts, keep things simple. I liked the mix up of styles and feels, just needs better execution.

Creativity: 3/5

I feel you are trying to experiment with things but not yet found your place. Will come eventually though. But as before, try not to over-complicate things, let the uniqueness and song shine through.

Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 3/5

If the whole band had the attitude and charisma of the frontman it would have been much better. Try to practice without looking at your guitar necks, it will free you!

While the potential is there, keep trying to find what makes you guys special and then push that, and remember to perform on stage.
