“How far have you guys travelled?” The answers shouted back at the band on stage, that night at the New Cross Inn in London, came thick and fast: “Germany!” “Belgium!” “Czech Republic!”
Getting the train to South East London, I didn’t know what to expect. Finding myself in the middle of a crowd, listening to a band I’d never heard of and sharing drinks with people from all over Europe, it hit me: this was something special.
Ty is without a doubt one of modern rock’s foremost genius, very rarely disappointing. He doesn’t have anything to prove anymore, which allows him to end his second self-titled album – the other one being his debut – with a “song,” ‘Untitled,’ that is nothing more than a burst of guitar leading nowhere.
We remember a time when every band name might have been – kind of – the same, and it was a GOOD thing. Seriously: we KNEW how to spot the indie kids! We could make a beeline for the T at the record shop – when those still existed – and be happy to look through thousands of THE something something’s albums.
The Pigeon Detectives are still around! Yep, we realise this statement might shock you, but bear with us here. The lads from Leeds might have emerged from the noughties’ indie pop rock scene but they kept at it even AFTER everyone moved on.
We never thought we’d feel bad for Kanye West. Some would say he had nothing left to say, but one could also see TLOP as a man baring his soul. He’s not commenting on the world, cause Yeezus is OUTSIDE the world.
Our favourite alien and the world’s most influential artist is no more. David Bowie passed on January 10, 2016, two days after the release of his latest and twenty-sixth studio album, Blackstar.
Lemonade has just dropped and everyone is talking about it, obviously. One question most watchers/listeners will ask themselves is: has Bey lost her mind? The answer? She sure did! And we’re incredibly grateful for it too.
