  • STRAP YOURSELF IN, TRAINSPOTTING 2 IS COMING

  • 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...

  • 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....
