Daily Roundup: Friday 23rd January 2009

Tommy Reilly (side)Just a quick one to round up the week, before we sign off for the weekend.

As we all know, Sundays were made for relaxing. I myself plan on doing absolutely zilch this Sunday – a chance to recharge the batteries and relax. However, this week (for once) there’s a reasonable amount worth watching on TV. If you’re suffering from a hangover after a big Saturday night, why not lie back on the sofar to catch the final of Orange unsignedAct with Sony Ericsson on Channel 4 from 1-2pm, with the results at 2:35pm. It’s between three pretty great artists: Tommy Reilly, Hip Parade and Scarlet Harlots. Read our introduction to the show here, and then our interviews with Hip Parade and Scarlet Harlots to get a picture of what to expect. I’m rooting for Tommy, but who knows who could win!

Later on Sunday evening, MTV One spends a day in the life of Pete Doherty (pictured top), which is quite fun to watch before that dreaded sleep before Monday Morning rolls around again. It’s on at 10pm, and we got a sneak peek last week – full details here.

This week we were fortunate enough to catch the Kerrang tour and In Case of Fire as it pulled into Oxford’s O2 Academy – read our review here. There is a chance that next week we’ll be bringing you a review of Bloc Party at Wolverhampton’s Civic Hall, but this is yet to be confirmed.

Before we leave you for the weekend, enjoy the below video. It’s Frank Turner‘s “Reasons not to be an Idiot”. I’m slow on the Frank Turner love train, but he’s realy amazing. Check out the video below, and we’ll catch you next week.

Live Review: In Case of Fire on the Kerrang! Tour @ Oxford Academy – 20th January 2009

In Case Of FireDespite having been going for nearly a week already, In Case of Fire kicked off tonight’s Kerrang Tour in style. After playing their first song, “Do What I Say”, the lads mumbled a brief introduction of “We’re In Case Of Fire and this song’s called ‘This Time We Stand'” before launching into a lively version of the track. After playing their older single they played their upcoming single, The Cleansing.

By now it seemed the three guys were getting into their stride as they spoke to the audience a bit more, getting everyone revved up for more before introducing their fourth and penultimate song, ‘The Cleansing’. Steven (vocals and guitar) and Mark (bass) certainly gave a lively performance using most of the stage space available as they powered through the songs. Although a bit more hidden from view, Colin on drums also seemed to give the set his all.

As with any good opening act, In Case of Fire got the audience set for the rest of the night with demanding to know “who’s looking forward to Black Tide“, pausing for the screams that they knew would undoubtedly follow, and then going on to repeat the question for Dir En Grey, Bring Me The Horizon and the headliners, Mindless Self Indulgence. Finally, they introduced their last song but not before saying that they’d be back in Oxford some time soon.

Although the set was short, no more than about 20 minutes, there is little doubt that In Case of Fire have made their mark big time on the people at the Kerrang tour. With a sound that bears reminiscence of a Northern Irish version of Muse, yet individual and fast paced in their own unique way as well; In Case of Fire are definitely a band to watch this year.

The rest of the night saw the pace of the audience only increase as Black Tide, Dir En grey, Bring Me The Horizon and Mindless Self Indulgence all brought their individual sets to the stage but each had the audience hooked in by their different approaches. It was undoubtedly one of the best combinations of bands to have as there was something for every Kerrang fan.

In Case of Fire played:
Do What I Say
This Time We Stand
Enemies
Landslides
The Cleansing
Plan A

In Case of Fire’s self-released debut album, Align The Planets; is out in February and their single, The Cleansing will be released March 2nd. The top photo is taken from In Case of Fire at the Mandela Hall in Belfast, as no pictures were available from last night’s show.
