The Newly Single - 25th June 2011
The Newly Single – 25th June 2011 Oh what a week! The last seven days in Whiteboard land has seen a bunch of us getting our degree results, Andy Murray horribly building up expectations at the opening of Wimbledon and of course the beginning of the world famous Glastonbury festival has been mentioned on every bleedin’ TV channel across the land. Where as Alex, Gemma and Sofie are off having the...
Whiteboard Interview : Tellison
Whiteboard Interview #042. Tellison God, didn’t we have to wait a long time for Tellison’s sophomore offering? Worth it? Answer: 100% Yes. To celebrate their return to album making, a four year gap, we met up with four of the 5-piece (all but Henry) to discuss all things ‘The Wages Of Fear’ whilst testing their drawing skills and ultimately learning that they’re...
The Newly Single - 20th June 2011
The Newly Single - 20th June 2011 I think I’ve sobered up now. 2 months of stress relieved with a ridiculous drinking session, that included a bit of a birthday knees up too. Needless to say my liver is pretty angry with me right now. One of the many highlights of the last fortnight was a trip to Ffos Las Racecourse for Ladies Night. Despite only having a 25% success rate, and being...
The Newly Single - 11th June 2011
The Newly Single - 11th June 2011 Alice Cooper once sang: “School’s out for summer, School’s out forever, School’s been blown to pieces”. However he also sang “My dog bit me on the leg today, my cat clawed my eye” so look into that in whatever way you want. But the bottom line is, school and University has finished for thousands of young ‘adults’ all around the country and this definitely been...

The Newly Single - 6th June 2011
The Newly Single - 6th June 2011 Hello! Remember me? Your favourite pun-wielding columnist is taking a brief hiatus from examination hell (they’re going terribly) to bring you a round up of the best and worst of this week’s single releases. It probably won’t be as good as the previous three weeks, Rick and Dan have raised the bar significantly and I’m really rusty, but...
Whiteboard Interview : Cults
Whiteboard Project interview #40 - Cults With their cute film-like feel, drawing on melodic masterpieces suited for both stories about loneliness and love, Cults are perhaps The Whiteboard Project’s favourite band at the moment. To cap it all off, Cults released their debut record this Monday, scoring high praise from virtually most journalistic reviewers worth mentioning. Deservedly...
The Whiteboard Reports #2 : Dot 2 Dot Bristol
Down the other side of the City I found myself lurking suspiciously around a massive ship. Yes, we all know my love for boats and this is well documented. However, Bristol’s Thekla was a boat which contained two venues of varying amounts of music-induced sweaty pleasure. I managed to squeeze in between the copious amount of beautiful and scene-styled hipsters and caught the brilliant Stagecoach...
The Whiteboard Reports #1 : Dot 2 Dot Bristol
Dot to Dot, the festival that temporarily inhabits three different cities over three days kicked off in Bristol on Saturday. With acts playing in eight venues it’s impossible to cover everything but here are a few of The Whiteboard Project’s highlights. The energetic six-piece Dananananaykroyd brought their own brand of ‘Fight Pop’ to the festival. They’re renowned for their love of stage-diving...
