“Show me a man with a tattoo and I’ll show you a man with an interesting past.” ― Jack London. I hate music that’s contrived, false and without any substance. So I suppose if you turn that statement on its head it would mean that I like music that is genuine, and real, you know …

Out today is the  Deluxe Edition of Goldfrapps recent Tales of Us album. As well as the original tracklisting it features the audio from the live special the band took part in, Live From Air Studios.

Part of growing up is the inevitable invites to dinner parties. I try, as much as I can to avoid them. The strained conversation, usually about a mutually convenient, middle of the road topic, such as the weather, the fact footballers get paid too much, the school your children go to….

Erotic, sensual and enticing, the video opens with the neat conceit of a dancer being manipulated by silhouetted puppet masters. But it doesn’t overplay the idea, the video developing through …

I think its fair to say that if this new video from Joel Compass is even remotely true to life, me and him live very different lives. Quite often, me and my younger brother used to have to go to work with my Dad on a Saturday morning. He worked in a large garage in …

I always loved cartoons. In my day growing up it was a mixture of things. From the  funny ones, like Tom and Jerry and Roadrunner (I embarrassingly still laugh out loud at that) to the more serious, you know Ulysses and Battle of the Planets, Dungeons and Dragons to the more wholesome message of He-Man. …
