  • STRAP YOURSELF IN, TRAINSPOTTING 2 IS COMING

    I don’t know what it is about Trainspotting, but it’s easily my favourite film. It just seems to have that replay-ability that I never get bored of. So you can imagine my jubilation when just twenty years after the masterpiece came out in 1996, they announced a sequel. There...
  • IS KARL PILKINGTON THE FUNNIEST PERSON ALIVE?

    Is anyone else as obsessed with Karl Pilkington as I am? I just can’t stop watching everything he’s been involved in. From his early days working with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant at XFM to his antics in An Idiot Abroad. I just think he’s incredibly funny, and he...
  • FEEL GOOD INC ARE BACK TO MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD

    Everyone’s favourite cartoon gorilla collective, Gorillaz, are back in the studio, hopefully to make us feel good again like they did back in 2005 with Feel Good Inc. Back when I was a little 10-year-old boy I can vividly remember being dragged around a HMV store as my mum...

  • RADIO X’S BEST OF BRITISH WAS A FORMALITY

    Guess who topped and just about dominated Radio X’s Best British Songs poll. It’s not tough. Yep, you probably guessed it, Oasis! Not only did the outspoken Mancunians win the poll with Wonderwall – again, you could’ve put your mortgage on that finishing top (or your student loan, if...
  • ARE THE CHARMING MEN FINALLY REFORMING?

  • GLASTONBURY’S GOT THE WORLD IN MOTION

      As you may recall, last year’s Glastonbury was greeted with a very unnecessary petition to remove Kanye West from the headline spot of the famous Pyramid Stage. In the end, Kanye diminished those ‘haters’ with possibly one of the best headline performances you are likely to ever see....
  • STONE ROSES: THE THIRD COMING

    “Glorious”. The words of Ian Brown, Me and every other Stone Roses fan out there. Yes, it is finally here, the more than much awaited, the third installment, Stone Roses Third Coming. The news was broken early Thursday morning exclusively by NME. The rumour was laid to rest after...
