I've just read a review of the OGen night by Luke Griffin, who writes for Basementbrain.

Here's what Luke had to say about me:

"In his blink-and-you'll-miss-it set (really, he played four songs), Joseph Coward brings with him possibly the highlight of the night with his cover of The Smashing Pumpkins- 'To Forget'. The fact he has stripped away all other elements of the song, right down to just guitar and vocals gives us a bare bones rendition that offers up the most gripping moment of the night by a long way, as well as a contender for the best version of the song. New single 'Jesus Christ' shows that young Coward has an old soul, drawing on his slightly unnerving ability to turn a room of half drunk disco junkies into silent gawkers. It's all quite haunting, making for both a soulful and soul destroying experience, in a good way."

Also included are reviews of Replicas and Electricity In Our Homes. It's a good read, as is the rest of the blog.
