Madonna Takes a Tumble at the Brit Awards

Let’s just get one thing clear before we start looking at the key moments from last night’s Brit Awards, nothing can possibly match the moment when Madonna, standing on a plinth and surrounded by dancers in dionysian states of ecstasy, was yanked backwards by her cape, coming a cropper three feet to the right in […]

No Bowie, No Showie: The 2014 Brit Awards In Full

It’s official, after at least 45 years in the business, David Bowie has finally arrived, taking the Best British Male award in the 2014 Brit Awards.

UK Chart Roundup: Ladies Night vs Bonfire Night

Katy Perry Y'know that feature the music magazines like to do from time to time, when they get a bunch of female musicians together — often from very different disciplines, and with very, very different ways of approaching what they do — and make some spurious case about how there's a new wave of girl […]

The UK Charts Welcome a New Breed of Boyband

Everyone knows that the age of the boyband is well and truly over, right? You couldn’t move for the blighters around here for a while, standing in a line and doing those funny synchronized kicky dance steps like the floor was electrified, and wearing asymmetrical beards and funny tramlines cut into their eyebrows. It was […]
