The wealth of talent here in the Southwest never ceases to blow our minds. This week, hard rock titans Alter Bridge took the Royal Albert Hall by storm with a run of sold out shows. Pictured bottom left is our very own Simon Dobson, conducting the accompanying 52-strong Parallax Orchestra in performing pieces of his own composition. Who wants to start the slow clap?

He's only gone and done it! Intrepid adventurer Dave Cornthwaite has just pulled his waterbike into Bergen harbour after a 1200+ mile journey from the tip of Norway, all the way down the coast. Dave's 14th successful non-motorised expedition took over two months of fairly solid cycling, in which he experienced some of the most beautiful scenery and acts of kindness that anyone could hope for. Check the video for a roundup of some of the best (and worst!) moments...
With news of grassroots venue closures and of developers destroying creative communities for profit becoming evermore commonplace, it's refreshing to see that there's something positive to report about the Southwest music scene.
Anyone who's had the pleasure of spending time with the Mad Dog Mcrea front man will know that this pub is undoubtedly going to be a roaring success.

From legendary ocean adventurers like Conrad Humphreys and Pete Goss, who each spent up to 100 days alone at sea racing non-stop around the world, the youthful Nikki Curwen who skippered her ‘barely bigger than a bathtub’ boat solo across the Atlantic and globetrotter Dave Cornthwaite and his lunatic quest to complete 25 x 1000+ mile man-powered journeys like skating 3600 miles across Australia - DMS have a rich history of supporting Southwest stars since we began back in 2003...
"In a world apart from the UK I found humanity, peace and love. Nowhere else on this planet have I ever felt such a dynamic welcome as the one that I have experienced here. The UK media's portrayal of situations in Zimbabwe over the years left me wondering what I should expect and I am glad to say that any pre-conceived misconceptions I may have had of the place were quickly diminished..." - Sam Reynolds
It is the Makakoba Project that brought DMS all the way to Zimbabwe; a project organised by Ruth Daniel of AGENCIA. The Makakoba is a UK based organisation working internationally to harness...
Dave Cornthwaite has now paddled over 1600 miles down the Mississippi River on his Stand Up Paddleboard, Artemis. He has passed through the States of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee , Arkansas and Mississippi, slinging his hammock between trees on the river banks, pulling his paddleboard up over dams and dodging huge industrial barges that plough their trade along the river.
Passing through cities like Minneapolis, St Paul, La Crosse, Quad Cities and St Louis,...
We love Dave Cornthwaites' style. We were introduced to his enormous Expedition1000 challenge recently and just had to support the guy. He is taking on twenty-five different journeys, each one a minimum of 1000 miles in distance and each using a different form of non-motorised transport.
A few years ago Dave was a self-confessed Playstation addict and an ”awful“ graphic designer. Then he left his job and started forging a new living as an adventurer, author and, later, a motivational speaker. We...
