Junebug is a new band from Glasgow, composed of one woman leading four men, with a classic set-up of two guitarists, one bass player, a drummer and a singer. Now you know a bit about them, let’s get down to the gig. Or at least down the stairs of Nice’n’Sleazy.

Not sure you could say that about his new, modern-soul inspired record though. ‘Caustic Love’ is a blistering 13 track (11 songs, 2 interludes) album which has surprised and delighted many, nabbing him the fastest selling album of 2014 with over 109,000 copies sold in the first … More Review: Caustic Love – A New Paolo?
I am not a regular attendee of ballets.

Cast your mind back to the dark days of 2010: a world where the words ‘hung parliament’ and ‘Cheryl Cole’ were still in regular usage. As a 16-year-old gay lad stranded in provincial England, and as yet uninitiated into the pleasures of alcohol or human contact, there was really only one thing that was going … More Bad Romance
Everyone knows what’s iconic. Madonna’s pointy bras? Totally iconic. The Beatles’ Abbey Road album cover? Hugely iconic. For me, Bruce Springsteen is the definition of an icon. He’s 63 but still achingly cool, has the on-stage (and off, I reckon) stamina of one 40 years his junior, and his music has inspired generation after generation. … More He’s The Boss of me
