Written by Angela Loughran/

/adam ant angela  loughran matteo sedazzari zani 1.

I received a last minute message on 5th January 2011 telling me to throw on some eighties makeup and hot foot it down to Proud Camden, where Elysian Nights were putting on a night of music and burlesque, which incidentally included a secret set by Adam Ant. How could I refuse?

"English as tuppence, changing yet changeless as canal water, nestling in green nowhere, armoured and effete, bold flag-bearer, lotus-fed Miss Havishambling opsimath and eremite, feudal still, reactionary Rawlinson End. "

Noel Gallagher - Royal Albert Hall

Written by Katy Georgiou

It’s fair to say that anyone who turned up to the Noel Gallagher concerts at The Royal Albert Hall in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust last week would have been a Noel Gallagher fan. Given that tickets to the show were not cheap and sold out very quickly, I think you’d have to be, so I’m unsure if anybody could have walked away from the event thinking anything other than how good it was.

It was with some reluctance that I embarked on my first Jazz experience a few years back. I admit to being virtually dragged into the venue while in the company of a fellow musician who persuaded me to open my ears to the sound of Jazz at a popular London Festival.

Fleet Foxes Why They Will Never Be As Big As American

Written by Alan McGee

Can people be blinded by hype into accepting absolute garbage into the rock'n'roll canon? I refer to a dispute I had recently over the meteoric rise of Fleet Foxes. A friend of mine believed that to truly judge whether an album is a "classic" you have to wait at least a year for the hype to clear. For her, Fleet Foxes have failed the test because their self-titled debut is a folk version of Coldplay.
