It’s a Saturday in the bonkers summer of ’21! So catch the sun (if you can find it) and wig out to this Kula Shaker classic.
My first Little Boots gig, and the beginning of a new era in my gigging life.
The rejuvenation of my Manics fandom continued in 2014 – and then hit a slight hurdle.
An electric summer’s evening with the Pet Shop Boys in South Wales.
All the gigs of my life: Gig 121 – Manic Street Preachers, Saturday, April 12, 2014, Brixton Academy
The place where my all-consuming love for the Manics began creeping back.
All the gigs of my life: Gig 120 – Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Saturday, October 26, 2013, Hammersmith Apollo
Another storming night from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and another gig for which I have far too few memories.
You can always count on the Pet Shop Boys for pop that engages the brain, heart and dancing feet.
It’s Glasto weekend – except there’s no Glasto this year, of course – but here’s a memory from a Glasto of years gone by.
Almost 25 years since the Spice Girls were unleashed onto an unsuspecting planet. Bloody hell.
Speaking of girl power, here’s a Lady Gaga review I wrote in 2009, during yet another of my myriad attempts at being a music writer. Enjoy!
