Push The Sky Away

Push the Sky Away by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are a musical institution these days, this is especially true with Nick Cave himself. From The Birthday Party to Grinderman, he’s been staring at us with disdain and contempt since the early 80s. These days residents of Brighton scour [...] Read more »

Latest Dieting Trend: The 2-Day Diet by Dr Michelle Harvie and Professor Tony Howell

Woody Guthrie "House of Earth"

Woody Guthrie – A House of Earth

Graphic, bizarre, sex outdoors as a representation of fertility rites, a house literally made of earth, a people who have nothing yet are in harmony with nature – sounds suspiciously like a 60’s hippy rebirth book along the lines of Carlos Castaneda. But Woody Guthrie’s [...] Read more »

Anthems

Anthems by Pure Love

Pure Love is the band formed by Frank Carter, ex-lead singer of Gallows. His departure from the band he played in with his brother came as quite a shock at the time. There were genuine musical differences with Carter wanting to head off somewhere different [...] Read more »
