Despite only being together for a couple of years, Sydney three piece RÜFÜS – Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt have been busy. Already topping the charts in their home nation with Atlas, they had multiple sell out tours around Australia, as well as playing parties in NYC and festivals all over the world. …

Coming to the end of her first UK Headlining tour, Hannah Trigwell’s penultimate show took place in her hometown of Leeds to great welcome and excitement. The atmosphere for a show on home territory was exactly as you’d expect it to be: a crowd that was filled with friends and fans, both encouraging her on …

Punk/New Wave legends The Rezillos, who came to fame with the 1978 top 20 hit, ‘Top of the Pops‘ have announced an eight gig tour of the UK. The Sex Pistols had just about hung up their boots, most punk bands were fronted by angry young youths spitting and snarling angst and vitriol against, well …

The early 90s were an unexpectedly fertile time for power-pop. The Posies blended harmonies and overloaded guitars with dreams of joining Big Star, Matthew Sweet proved it was possible to be a power-pop solo artist, Del Amitri were a little more rock, but were more than welcome to sit at the table, Crowded House were …

It’s funny who you run into. I, in my younger days (not that much younger, I’ll admit to that) used to have these shoes that allowed my to slide, slightly Fred Astaire like, down the aisles of the Tesco (and other supermarkets in other places, but bear with me on this) nearest to my work. …

The ‘Modfather’ is getting back to nature again this summer. Following the success of last years ‘Forest Live’ gigs, Paul Weller, in conjunction with the Forestry Commision, has just announced a string of live dates all set in beautiful woodland surroundings. “It will be good for me to be back in the woods. I really …

I always had this thing about Jazz, but the record that really opened the door for me, was Jazzmatazz Vol. 1. Former Gang Starr mainstay Guru released the album, essentially a hip-hop record but one that was infused with, or rather soaked in Jazz and Jazz-Funk. It went heavy on my stereo till it wore …

“The most exciting guitar band in the UK” according to Nigel Harding, head of playlists at Radio 1. A bold statement, but it’s one that seems to be getting support from every quarter. Hotly tipped by many to be one of the biggest acts of 2014, Blackpool trio, Darlia, are already drawing comparisons to the …

If ‘Play Dumb’ was written to provoke a conversation, then it certainly succeeded in my eyes. The premier single on The Crookes third album, Soapbox, offers an interesting dichotomy of prettiness and intelligence, sincerity and lies, superficial attraction and dark secrets. The anguish in singer George Waite’s eyes seems all too real as he is …
