It finally feels like we are seeing, or rather hearing the benefits of all those years we spent listening to 90s US Pop Punk. There’s no question in saying that the genre had influenced a whole industry boom of imitations from every corner of the globe. However it seems that only now are we actually […]Read more "Pop Punk Part II"
This picture of Disclosure “performing” at Capital FM’s Summer Ball, mixed with Guy’s hole-digging, slightly contradictory statement about why the groups mixers weren’t actually plugged-in, simply proves that the band no longer have creative control over the things they do, and that they are in fact just a product. How on earth did we get to […]Read more "Disclosure"
Bored? Hungover? Need to listen to some new music? Good answer! I’ve been putting together these little music zines for a while now, and as the internet is pretty much the only thing people do anymore, I figured it would be a good idea to upload one to ISSUU. Have a flick through and let […]Read more "Online Zine"
I found the idea of seeing Kraftwerk in the Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern a very appealing one. I mean let’s face it, they are one of THE most influential bands when it comes to modern electronic Pop music. But have you seen some of the snippets from their performances? I understand that there is a […]Read more "Kraftwerk"
This forum post on Absolute Punk has certainly caught my attention. The Vans Warped Tour is something that I have wanted to attend for as long as I can remember. The only thing that has been stopping me is the Atlantic Ocean. Nowadays it’s probably just a commercial fuck hole filled with the worst kind […]Read more "March On Electric Children"
Music and comedy are two things that go together like peas and carrots. Whether it’s in the form of comedy duo The Flight of the Conchords, Alan Partridges bizarre duets, or the incredibly talented Reggie Watts, there’s a humorous song for everyone. With websites such as Youtube allowing people to present their own knee-slapping […]Read more "Funny Music"
The fact that Kreyshawn was allowed to release a song in 2011 goes to show how awful music has become over the last couple of years. With pretty much zero creativity, a lust for sales, and the desire to be a “somebody”, it seems that most musician’s have just given up. I’m finding it increasingly […]Read more "Music Is Dead"
The death of Steve Jobs earlier this week was sad news for the world over. He’s considered to be one of the greatest innovators of all time, and he has certainly changed the way we go about our day-to-day lives. His commitment and persistence with Apple, and its products, has made them into one of […]Read more "Innovation"
I’ve gotta be honest, I never thought I’d feel like this. Being away from my friends really is affecting me this time around. Summer was incredible. July was perfect. I’ve only been in Epsom for a month and already it’s taking its toll on me. There’s something about this place that I love, and I […]Read more "The Year of Hibernation"
