Amy Winehouse At The BBC, a retrospective collection which chronicles many of the singer’s outstanding performances during her career, will be released on 7 May 2021 through UMC/Island. For the first time ever, this expanded release offers audio-only versions of the songs featured on earlier compilations A Tribute To Amy Winehouse by Jools Holland and …

FOR FAR too many music fans here in the UK, the name Warren Zevon merely equates to the American singer-songwriter’s one and only hit in the late 70s, “Werewolves Of London”. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, as it’s a great song and Zevon deserved his pop-star moment. Things is there was more to …

A band with a ferocious but short-lived output, Black Wire were among the greatest who opposed the 2000’s indie/garage/DIY cluster of clones. They toured with The Cribs during their lifespan, whom they later supported in a one-off reunion show in 2013.
