This year marks  30 years since Lloyd Cole and The Commotions released their debut album, ‘Rattlesnakes’. Name checking Norman Mailer, Eva Marie Saint, and Simone De Beauvoir it oozed style, and provided a defining moment in the indie folk/rock scene prevalent at the time. The Commotions went on to release two further albums before they …

Oh, we’re getting a shiver of excitement about Surrey’s new rock heroes Arcane Roots. Not just because they’ve announced a whole host of new tour dates across both the UK and Europe,  but because they’re in serious danger of exploding into being one of the biggest rock bands in the country. Their album, Blood & …

I have this pair of trainers (or sneakers for our American readers) the I’ve had them for years. The reason I can’t bear to let them go, is that firstly I love the style of them, they’re comfortable and they’ve never let me down. Because I associate them with so many memories, I can’t ever …

They’ve provided support for Echo & The Bunnymen, had their cover version of Chris Isaac’s ‘Wicked Game’ adopted by the BBC ,  been re-mixed by top psych band Toy, received critical acclaim and support from Radio 1, 6 Music and XFM, and all within 18 months of forming.

So, if any persuasion 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 …
