ONE TRUE VOICE — ‘Shakespeare’s Way With Words’ SIOBHAN DONAGHY — ‘Overrated’
Read post

Casualties of a) the Reality-Pop arena vote and b) an ill-timed split return with more or less desperate dice-throws. Rarely has a No.2 hitmaker been considered as instant a failure as One True Voice — but then with Girls Aloud making the best […]

ALBUM REVIEW: Poem-Cees – PARANOIA
I put the headphones on and lean back. Jagged guitar assaults my ears and fear grips me as I hear the harrowing opening litany. THEY ARE OUT TO GET ME.

NO GIRLS ALOUD
If we can thank Girls Aloud for anything, and I’m not sure we can, its for seeing off One True Voice. Them and the British public I feel have long since recognised that there is indeed only one true voice in this country, one voi[…]

Beck-Golden Age
Read post

Chicks on Speed-EuroTrash Girl
This is a blackened, dirty, sexy, artifice ridden cover , done by people who have never left ny, the electroclash banging percussion, the nicospit vocals-what it lacks is the fuck you punk class war that cracker did so […]

FREEWAY – “What We Do”
Roc-a-fella’s post-ironic smash & grab raids on symphonic soul continue, subverting some musty old relic pinched from Just Blaze’s dad’s basement, one of those off-hand slices of doped a[…]

JURRASIC ARSE – The T-Rex Story
What was the largest, most frightening creature ever to walk this earth. Before you answer, I’m not thinking of fictional creatures such as Emerson, Lake and Palmers Tarkus. Or even those terrible lizards, […]
