This is the place where you can spout off about that fabulous/crappy band you went to see last night and the thought of which has had you up and bouncing off the walls/gnashing your teeth ever since. If something has made you happy or sad, gleeful or mad drop us a line and we'll stick it up here for the world to see (unless it's a poxy waste of time in which case we won't bother).

Many, many more reviews are printed in the paper version of R*E*P*E*A*T; click here to how to get the current issue.
