How Chris de Burgh Reimagined the Nativity

Chris de Burgh | A Spaceman Came Travelling

On the first Christmas, the bright Star of Bethlehem guided travellers and wise men to the stable where Jesus Christ was born, or so the Nativity tale states. Precisely what the Star of Bethlehem was is unclear: a supernova, a comet, a “great conjunction,” or an alien spaceship burning as it enters the Earth’s atmosphere. […]

Don’t Shoot Me Santa: An X-Mas hymn for grown out boys who haven’t been so good

The Killers | Don't Shoot me Santa

Ahh Christmas time is approaching and it stirs up so many fond memories from my childhood and young adulthood. Rainy days, drinking hot chocolate by the fireplace, decorating the Christmas tree, baking cookies, and of course listening to classic Christmas tracks back when tapes and CDs were a thing.

A shambolic band, or did they deliver?

Babyshambles | Delivery

I walked into The Sunflower Lounge, an indie venue full of students in the heart of Birmingham, notorious for its grungy dive bar feel.

Spector’s Reeperbahn and The Best Gig of my Life

Spector | Reeperbahn

It was a warm summer’s evening when I queued outside of Scala in London for my first proper gig.

If your kink is quintessentially British songs, this will really get you goin’

The Kinks | You Really Got Me

My shoes stuck to the dancefloor of the large concert room as I worked my way around the tables, collecting empty beer glasses from noisy patrons. It was rock and roll night and I was halfway through my shift as a barmaid in a busy social club. The cover band were currently hammering out The […]
