Album Review: Night Network // The Cribs

Night Network, the eighth album from Yorkshire alt-rockers The Cribs, looked at one point as if it might not be made at all. After the release of 2017’s 24/7 Rock Star S**t, the band left their long-time management only to learn that the rights to their back catalogue had been bought by other parties without […]Read More

Live Review: The Cribs // Leeds First Direct Arena –

Despite it being a 10th anniversary tour of ‘Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever’ it was a night of firsts at the Leeds First Direct arena this past Saturday. It was the first time that The Cribs had headlined an arena; it was the first time in the UK that Lee Ranaldo graced the stage for […]Read More

Live Review: The Cribs // Oval Space, London – 01.09.16

I’ve spent the past day deliberating over how quite to transcribe such a special evening into words, and I’m yet to find a way to do the Jarman brothers justice … but here we go. Not too long ago, Wakefield’s premier mid-fi indie outfit The Cribs announced an ‘Old Skool’ gig at the intimate Oval Space in […]Read More

Gallery: The Cribs // 28.10.15

The excitement is palpable as The Cribs open their career-defining gig at Camden’s iconic Roundhouse with fan favourite Ancient History and from this moment on, the entire crowd knew we were in for one hell of a show and Yorkshire’s finest did not disappoint. Their live show is packed with energy and with barely any on-stage banter, you […]Read More

Top 10 Acts at Reading 2015

10) The Bulletproof Bomb For many people with music tastes similar to my own, The Bulletproof Bomb were the first band of the festival on our clashfinders. They played an early set on Friday at the Festival Republic Stage and provided possibly the best warm up for the rest of the festival one could have […]Read More

Top 10 Songs by The Cribs

Wakefield’s premier mid-fi band and unsung cult heroes of the indie-punk persuasion The Cribs have been tearing into the scene for a career-spanning 14 or so years. Having released their debut album to critical acclaim in 2003, the trio of brothers have exploded their way out of West Yorkshire and through the underbelly of the English underground garage-rock […]Read More

10 Lyrics To Mend A Broken Heart

Just been dumped? Fear not! The Indiependent’s very own Emmie Morris picks a mix of ten tracks, old and new, that hold the best lyrics to help one get over a broken heart. 10. ‘She tastes like sunlight and she’s always gonna be there in the back of your mind / is there time to […]Read More

My Life In Songs: Cady Siregar

Come On Eileen //  Dexys Midnight Runners Without a doubt the best four-and-a-half-minutes of a song in the entire world. And galaxy. And universe. Of all time. From the unorthodox folky fiddle intro, to the infectiously catchy dance beat, and each truly singable (shoutable) verse, I say with as much confidence as I can that […]Read More

My Life In Songs: Emmie Morris

I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker // Sandi Thom Right, let’s just get the most cringe song on this list out of the way now. This used to be my favourite song. It’s perhaps the first song I can ever remember really taking a liking to; I would sing it constantly, and occasionally during […]Read More

Album Review: For All My Sisters // The Cribs

The Cribs’ new record For All My Sisters gathers and utilises all the elements that create a very strangely unique album. And though they appear to have hit the proverbial nail on the head with this one – every album has its ups and downs. The 12 tracks listed within For All My Sisters regularly […]Read More

Throwback Thursday: The Cribs // Our Bovine Public

‘Our Bovine Public’ epitomises the cliché ‘a blast from the past’: as angsty and pent up as The Cribs could ever be yet totally catchy, it makes you want to headbang and bop at the same time. One of the best songs to see performed live, it’s political without being so overt as to feel oppressive […]Read More

Track Review: Burning For No One // The Cribs

‘Burning For No One’ the newest single from The Cribs. A heartfelt upbeat indie rock song that just builds up more excitement for the new album For All My Sisters. Think Robert Smith jamming with Blink 182, this would be a summary of what the song sounds like. The repetitive “I’m burning for no one” chorus will […]Read More

My Life In Songs: Beth Kirkbride

This week it’s the turn of Editor Beth Kirkbride to describe her life in five songs. It’s tougher than it sounds to pick but she’s narrowed it down to five (and we’re really sorry about the inclusion of Taylor Swift …) Wherever You Will Go // The Calling How many of you can say that […]Read More
