New Year's Eve - Hanley / Track Review: The Rebounds - Mr Zed Lister

and track review
Ellen Argile

etween losing yourself in Christmas TV and frittering away your well-earned cash on presents that will be forgotten about, New Year's Eve is the perfect time to let your hair down and concentrate on number one.

For lovers of anything that features a guitar, The Sugarmill will be your haven. With three different rooms offering everything from britpop to ska (with some dance thrown in – just to keep you on your toes). With entry to the Main Room, Room 2 and the Roof Top Terrace Bar costing a mere £6, you’ll be sure to be partying until the wee hours.

If dance music is more your scene, then it’s just a short trip across the road to Hanley’s biggest nightclub – Liquid. For those of you that like to scrub up and splash out then their black and white ball themed evening is just for you. With tickets costing around £15 each you’ll definately be getting value for money, with 3 floors featuring dance, cheese and R’nB you’ll be spoilt for choice. With Envy’s lavish d├ęcor, Liquid’s hypnotising light show, and Jumpin’ Jaks' mega talented dancers, it’ll be a feast for your visual as well as your audio senses.


Track Review: The Rebounds – Mr Zed Lister.

From the ballsy bass intro to the ear ringing drop dead ending, The Rebounds latest offering 'Mr Zed Lister' is exactly what we’d come to expect.

The vocals not as polished as it could be, but it doesn’t need it. The whole song reflects that electric, mightier than thou, almost masturbatory air. The instrumental speaks volumes in this track, in fact I’d go as far as to saying you could get rid of the vocal all together and still have a track that would be strong enough to work in its own right.

It’s good to hear that they still master the sound that no other band in their league can even get away with.
