It’s usually around the age of 13 or 14 when teenagers start getting into some sort of musical genre they love.  Rather than listening to whatevers on the radio or getting a copy of Now that’s what I call music 22,435 from nan for Christmas, suddenly a whole specific genre of music is opened up which...

There is a sense of comfort that comes with nostalgia, that warm, gooey feeling that envelops you as soon as the opening chimes of a familiar song sound, evoking memories of when you were here or there and who you were with.

December 27, 2013 | 0 Comments

I have loved Cartel since 2007 and I was only still a teenager back then and even now that I’m in my 20’s, the music that this band have given me is something worth noting down to everyone that loves their pop punk music as much as I do. They are seriously an underrated band...

Chris Brown has a tumultuous relationship with his fans – spoken as a fan. His music and professional level dance moves keep me coming back, even though as a strong young woman, I don’t support some of the things he has done in his personal life.

The cemetery is an extensive sprawling maze of tombs, providing the afterlife accommodation for many other...

How many albums have received dozens of five star reviews, established a band’s signature sound and influenced a generation of musicians whilst remaining relatively unknown to the wider public? Let It Be, the third and career shaping record for Minneapolis post-punk quartet The Replacements is one of those classic albums that seems to have passed the majority...

‘Any of you fucking pricks move, and I’ll execute every motherfucking last one of you!’ shrieks Honey Bunny, and with that, Dick Dale, the king of surf guitar, launches into the exotic rapid fire plucking that pervades the perennial Misirlou. I’ve been listening to this sequence, which opens the soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction,...

Record Rewind: David Bowie – Hunky Dory

December 20, 2013 | 0 Comments

It was a magical meeting. We stood on either side of a wooden pole at Pushover Festival, like Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio on either side of the fishtank. I gazed into his green eyes as we talked about our favourite Bowie albums. Mine was Ziggy Stardust, his was Hunky Dory. Then he ditched me...
