15 Great British Tribute Band Names, And One We Made Up

There’s a definite knack to naming a tribute band: Ideally you’d want a devilishly-clever pun on the band’s name (or at a push, their most famous song or album title), but it has to be one that also explains that you’re definitely a tribute band and not the real thing, so that anyone coming to […]

News Roundup: Winslet Escapes Tropical Inferno, Atkins Out of ‘Upstairs Downstairs,’ and Kaisers Predict a Riot

Ricky Wilson: Marathon Man… (ish)

Kate Moss, Pete Doherty Bring Drama to The NME’s

Those expecting mayhem and flying silverware at the live, Russell Brand-hosted Brits found it instead at the NME’s, if you believe The Sun‘s Victoria Newton.

Mexico Slaughtered Britain at Last Night’s Oscars

The British dominance of Hollywood has been a big story throughout award season. But one could be forgiven for mistaking last night’s Oscars for a World Cup match, and, predictably, Britain got beaten by Mexico.

Jessica Simpson To Enter the Whoniverse?

It’s quite enough to hear Russell T. Davies admit he was gagging for Britney Spears to appear on Doctor Who, but are we ready for Breastica Simpson to jiggle her way through scenes with David Tennant? Perhaps some prankster over at Starpulse is having some fun at our expense…at least, we hope they are. Their […]

Kaiser Chiefs’ Ricky Wilson Reminisces About That Hit-and-Run

Was it a pissed-off Arctic Monkeys fan who did it? That’s what Ricky Wilson of Kaiser Chiefs jokes to Pitchfork. It appears that the little traffic accident wasn’t so little–and his injuries were more serious than we had been to led to believe. Wilson says he tried to jump over the oncoming car. To quote […]
