The album ‘People Doesn’t Care/1955 ‘ may not be as creepily odd as the cover would have you think, but it most definitely has its quirks. More importantly, it is a highly accomplished work of modern pop – one, in fact, that makes you wonder how so many other artists get it wrong. For one …

Poised to commence his legal action against The Other Three, Peter Hook bestrides the legacies of two seminal bands like some kind of a COLOSSUS; Joy Division and New Order. Tonight, it’s “Imperial”-period New Order and he’s playing their mid eighties albums “Low-life” and “Brotherhood.” For reasons that I won’t bore you with, I missed …

“London in the 1960’s, everyone had a story about the Krays…” This first line of Legend harks back to Goodfellas’ infamous opener: “As far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster”; And for good reason, as we are swept into a criminal underworld, in this case the East end, and the lives …

’Can’t speak for the rest of the world but, certainly, I need this new Public Image Limited album in my life RIGHT NOW! Rotten and co extend their Third Coming with some new product and, in a lot of ways, it’s a continuation of 2012’s “This Is P.i.L.” Such a shame old John-Boy couldn’t convince …

This was nearly a homecoming gig for London-based Canadian artist Tess Parks. Anticipation hung strongly in the …

Albert Hammond Jr’s artistic work flows through his new material called Momentary Masters to be released in July 2015. The LA lead guitarist attended a Swiss boarding school during his younger days where he met the future Strokes singer Julian Casablancas (an absolute gem) and later attended New York University’s film school during the 90’s. …

How can you encapsulate the essence of the Jah Wobble experience for beginners and long-standing fans alike? The release of `Redux’ – a sumptuous six CD Boxset anthology, complete with mini-book of sleeve-notes – would be a pretty good start. Containing the old, new and reworked, it’s not the complete works of, but something of …

It’s been over two years since “We Need Medicine” but Glasgow’s favourite indie trio The Fratellis are back! They’ve got a brand new song “Me And The Devil”, an upcoming album “Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied” and have just announced a few live dates in the UK followed by a US tour in September. It is …

I was introduced to Candy Darling last July and was so happy to receive Emily’s recent  email sharing their two new tunes. With ‘Going Straight’ they have moved away from the pulsing electronica of ‘Money’, as it opens with Spector-esque drums and The Jesus and Mary Chain guitars.  There is a definate heartbreak feel to …
