Ten Great British Songs For A Heatwave

It’s really hot in the UK right now. This might not sound like a big deal, especially if you’re reading this in a part of the world that is more used to scorching temperatures than snowmen and big furry boots, but over here, after a few years of rainy summers and the very, very long […]


Call Off The Shots: Girls Aloud Split Up

It must be lovely to be a rocksnob. Imagine how much time you save in your music-loving day having your decisions already made for you.

Have You Heard ‘Something New’ From Girls Aloud?

We love the Spice Girls as much as any Union Flag-waving Anglophile, but the girl band reunion that truly has our pulses racing is Girls Aloud‘s.

And if I remember rightly, we were a little skeptical that this would come […]

Girls Aloud For The High Jump?

Is anyone else starting to get the distinct impression that the organizers of the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics are still stuck in the “throwing mud at the wall” stage of development? We’ve already had the rumor of a Beatles/Rolling Stones/Sex Pistols supergroup, there’s been talk of Muse or Coldplay playing; heck some optimists […]

Music Roundup: Coldplay Rejoin Brian Eno for ‘Concept’ Album

When Coldplay frontman Chris Martin visited BBC Radio 1 earlier this month, he revealed that the band’s long-awaited fifth LP could be their “last big shot”.
