Review: Ash – Live @ Andrews Lane Theatre, Dublin (March 20th, 2010)

March 22, 2010

Always a dodgy things these free, invite only promo gigs. It’s either going to be a small room, located in a budding, hip – fashion friendly district of town with The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin jamming in the corner while people look elsewhere, laughing prolifically and sipping champagne. Or, they can be like tonight’s […]

MySpace Review – Sirocco

February 4, 2010

It’s been far too long since we got a chance to do one of these. Managed to sprain, twist and dislocate things since the last time we checked in but all’s well and we’ve got a new found respect for the enduring people of Cambodia, aswell as picking up an in-depth history of the presidents […]

IRISH NOISE! – Raging Conflict (MySpace)

January 21, 2010

I’ve been listening to these guys on and off for a good two years now but I’ve never gotten a chance to give them a review or even see them live so here goes, at last.  Although the Irish Thrash metal scene is quite small, there are some fine acts. Groups like Mass Extinction (Our […]

IRISH NOISE! – Gama Bomb (MySpace)

January 21, 2010

Irish thrash metaler’s Gama Bomb’s name has been flying around for awhile. Tickets There first heard them on the great Irish Thrash Search of 08 along with acts like Mass Extinction, Slave Zero, Municipal Waste and, surprisingly enough, many others. At first we opted to get behind mass Extinction (they’ll have fun with that comment […]

I think Megadeth are about to become the only band on this site with more albums reviewed than Def Leppard. Feck it, why not. About time fans of the boys got to read some shit about them. It’s just a pity many people aren’t reading them. Ah well, they’re keeping me amused although I haven’t […]


September 18, 2009

OK, same drill as yesterday, a double review feature of classic Megadeth in celebration of their new album, Endgame being a pretty decent record. Now some of you may wonder why I choose Cryptic Writings instead of Killing Is My Business and Business is Good or So far, So Good, So What. Well I plan […]

Megadeth, they’re like Radiohead, but ya know, not gay!

This Just In…!!!

September 3, 2009

Nothings confirmed and how likely is that? but apparently Kerry King heard Lars is talking to folks about getting […]

Radiohead play Creep Live at Reading Festival!!

September 1, 2009

Shock, horror, amazement and astonishment. The blandest band in the world, Radiohead, actually played their biggest hit, Creep on Sunday night. Just saw the report on NME and I was almost bowled over with laughter. What sort of band headlines any huge show like that and ‘surprises’ the audience by playing the song everyone but […]

What happened folks? In the mid 50’s, Mr. Elvis A. Presley walked into Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee and became the very first, the best, the symbol, legend, embodiment and icon of rock n roll. Like Sid Vicious to Punk, Frank Sinatra to big band, Johnny Cash to country and western or even Dana to […]

Tickets There Likes: Def Leppard – High ‘N’ Dry

July 30, 2009

Hopefully you’ve gone out and bought Pyromania, if not… I said, you’re a sap. Or, maybe it’s because you haven’t read the review so go do it now  Good, now you’re back. So The Mighty Leppard exploded in the states with that album, made them the biggest band in the world…etc. Now it’s time […]

Tickets There Likes: Def Leppard – Pyromania

July 27, 2009

If there is one band on God’s green earth that has meant more to Tickets there, and the man behind Tickets There (no, not the guys in Eyebrowy, me ya knob!), it has to be Def Leppard. Despite Guns N Roses, Marilyn Manson, Elvis Presley, Turn, Metallica and many, many, many others over the years […]


June 3, 2009

When you’re a fan of a genre, it’s generally because you found one band you fell head over heels in love with and you try desperately to find similar bands in order to discover new areas the sound can be brought to. My love for Irish music started with a truly legendary three piece from […]

Tickets There is sick. Sick of Indie, sick of singer / songwriter, sick of all the heap of shit poncy, waste of space bands out there. Have I done anyone thing to stop these bands getting attention? No!, the four people that read my blog may never have known about some of the bands I […]

Bats are currently building up a nice little fan base around Dublin. They’re listed a favourites on several notable music blogs, E-Zines, stores and magazines. To Tickets There, they sound like a mix of Chop, chop, stop! Indie with a tea spoon of metal. Once again, I haven’t heard their EP or seen them live. […]
