Partisans
Wolverhampton Arena Theatre
November 14, 2015

Partisans have now been playing together for two decades, in a completely unchanging four-piece configuration.

The band made several comments about savouring the Arena Theatre's vibrations, ...

It's no coincidence ...

“Thief" hits the ground ...

Read "Phil Barnes' Favourite Albums of 2014" reviewed by Phil Barnes

The sheer volume of great records that I have managed to hear, and the knowledge that there are many more that I haven't, means that I make no pretence of presenting a list of the definitive albums of the year. Instead, this is a snapshot list of the ten records that I have enjoyed the most ...

Partisans: Partisans - Swamp

Read "Partisans - Swamp" reviewed by Phil Barnes

Partisans, seen by many as the godfathers of the flourishing UK prog jazz scene, plough their own idiosyncratic path on this their fifth album, and first to appear on London label of the moment Whirlwind. The title conjures up fears of a blues rock abomination but thankfully the gentlemen have refrained from donning bandanas or placing ...

Partisans: Never the Same Way Twice

Read "Partisans: Never the Same Way Twice" reviewed by John Kelman
