Little Gem Records: Vatican II – “Squirdiller”

Vatican II was formed in the sticky summer of 2012 by Hugh, Paul (Hands Up Who Wants to Die, Shifting, Molossus) and Ivan (Crowhammer), over a mutual appreciation of jam donuts and the music of Unwound, Polvo and Rodan.

They have mostly been focused on writing and rewriting tunes over the last four years, and playing sporadic rock shows with lovely bands like Animal Lover, Golden Oriole, Mayors of Miyazaki, Siorai Geimhreadh, Nothing Clean, Gaze and Woven Skull, amongst others. Continue Reading »

Frances Winston reviews this latest shark thriller, and sees it as a bit of fun with some thrills to keep your nerves on edge 

Directed by: Johannes Roberts – Starring: Claire Holt, Mandy Moore, Chris J. Johnson, Yani Gellman, Santiago A. Segura, Matthew Modine

Since it wasn’t a victory, but rather a rescue mission, perhaps it wasn’t deemed ‘sexy’ enough to merit the blockbuster treatment. Until now that is. Continue Reading »
