One of my favourite rock bands is back at it. A new track from The Duke Spirit, “Everybody’s Under Your Spell”, will be available to download for free from their website this Friday (I presume that means UK time). According to their mailing list: “New videos, live documentary footage and photographs to devour throughout October. There […]
Superb rockers The Duke Spirit have written a ton of new songs, and have started to record them. This makes me happy, since few rock like they do. Give us a date, guys, so we can write it in our calendars.
I’ve seen London rock act The Duke Spirit six times already, but the chance to see them in the tiny 100 Club last night wasn’t something I could pass up. And my pal Siany and her friend Eddie showed up too, so I didn’t have to be a gig saddo. The support act was Joe […]

One of the exciting things about London when I moved here was the chance to see bands play live: awesome bands, and lots of ’em. Everyone plays London. Now that I’m leaving in a few weeks I’m reflecting back on who I’ve seen. I have not wasted my gig-going opportunity. The list of bands I’ve […]
