Paul Weller Is Right To Be Angry About eBay

Paul Weller Is Right To Be Angry About eBay

Immediately after I found out that Paul Weller was bowing out of all future Record Store Days because his limited edition single ended up on eBay, I was dumbstruck at how ignorant he seemed of the world he now lived in. People have always sold things, I thought, after handing over the single on this […]

Will the Beastie Boys Ever Tour Again?

Will the Beastie Boys Ever Tour Again?

Pretty much everyone in the world has heard the Beastie Boys at some point. Whether you had that one friend who was into hip-hop and would insist upon putting them on every time you turned your back on the music at a party or you’re a hardcore fan of your own accord, they’re a legitimate […]

Leonard Cohen’s Impact on Folk Music

Leonard Cohen’s Impact on Folk Music

Leonard Cohen’s impact on folk music is immeasurable. The longtime singer/songwriter is widely considered to be a poet first, and a musician second – but that’s only if you have to choose. Cohen ingeniously combines beautiful folk stylings with lyrics that are emotionally ornate and verbally idiosyncratic enough to be considered poetry. His words inspire […]

Interview with Sivu

Interview with Sivu

Sivu is the rather strange Finnish pseudonym of James Page, an Alt-pop Gotye-style soloist, who hails from the postcard county of Cambridgeshire in eastern England. Far from the safe and historic setting he comes from, his music is altogether more adventurous and unorthodox than the medieval University buildings and flat fields that come to mind […]

The ‘Russian Facebook’ now at war with Major Record Labels

One social network is now the subject of much of the music industry’s collective anger, and it’s probably not one you’re using like Facebook or Twitter. VK (previsouly known as VKontakte) is Russia’s ‘version of Facebook’ and has been turning a blind eye to some systematic music piracy happening on it’s servers. Three separate lawsuits […]

Why Did My Chemical Romance Break Up?

Why Did My Chemical Romance Break Up?

When My Chemical Romance split up, you could practically hear the rending of garments and the tearing out of hair from distraught fans across the world. And while you might think that those disappointed by the loss of MCR are made up of fourteen-year-old girls wearing too much eyeliner and listening to “Teenagers” on repeat, […]

Britpop: Twenty Years Later

Britpop: Twenty Years Later

Just over twenty years ago was the release of Oasis’s first UK single “Supersonic”, a point in history that marks the beginning of when Britpop stops being the preserve of the British indie scene and becomes the reigning moment of pop culture for an entire decade. The 1990s was a particularly strange time for British […]

Is Lady Gaga The Ambassador Of The Gay Community Or Exploiter?

Is Lady Gaga The Ambassador Of The Gay Community Or Exploiter?

A virtual unknown six years ago, Lady Gaga has since managed to usurp Madonna as the gay community’s pop diva of choice thanks to a string of empowering anthems, a series of outlandish visual statements and a devotion to supporting LGBT rights which has bordered on the messianic. But ever since she burst onto the […]

In Conversation With Little Matador’s Nathan Connolley

In Conversation With Little Matador’s Nathan Connolley

Little Matador are the latest rock clique out of Ireland to give a brash nod to classic raucous rock formulas. With a July support slot for Biffy Clyro in the bag (even before their debut album is out later this month) and an already impressive CV behind its’ members, we grafted in their frontman and […]

How Much Money Do American Idol Contestants Make?

How Much Money Do American Idol Contestants Make?

American Idol is basically the granddaddy of all the competitive reality shows we see today. Around since 2002, in it’s twelve year run it’s played host to any number of judges—from the understandable (Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey) to the slightly less so (Ryan Seacrest, anyone?), it’s spawned hundreds of copycats but remains the dominating monarch […]
