    Review: Twin Atlantic @ Leeds Beckett University, 15th October 16

    Leeds Beckett University is absolutely rammed from wall to wall for one of Glasgow’s finest exports of the last decade: Twin Atlantic. Riding in on the coat tails of their triumphant new album ‘GLA’, which was released on 9th September, the four-piece have a sense of expectation about them as they march almost militarily onto the stage, staring across into the crowd. They burst into the first song almost immediately, track one from the album, the oddly titled Gold Elephant: Cherry Alligator. Right from this preliminary moment, it’s clear that the whole essence of this band has changed over the past two years. Lead singer Sam McTrusty sports a rockier…

    SU Elections Question Time – LIVE updates

    Introduction After the first day of campaigning, it’s candidate question time. This is the student’s opportunities to ask the candidates questions and test the strengths and limitations of each candidate and their policies. The candidate question time can change the votes of many in the audience and those of you reading at home, listening to RadioHud and watching on HudTV. Many would argue that this event benefits slates as the army of supporters that slates have loudly clap and cheer their candidates, however should a strong independent candidate succeed in silencing the support with articulate and crafty responses, then this can turn the tide against slates. Good luck to all…
