The Wonderstuff Reborn

Written by Simon Murray

You’ve owned records by some bands for years. You might occasionally play them amidst a wave of nostalgia. You might venture out to see them play live ‘just one more time’, but there’s always the danger that you’ll be disappointed. That the band who provided the soundtrack to your formative years aren’t as good as you remembered. That they can’t quite cut it any more.

As documented in the media Pete Docherty has recently been detained at Her Majesty’s Pleasure for six months. One of our ZANI team was lucky enough to interview him one month prior to his incarceration. Pete was upbeat and optimistic, and displayed no hint of this issue that must have been hanging over his head the weeks leading up to the trial. Thanks to Pete’s Manager and Agent permission was granted to upload this unique insight into the charismatic man that is-Pete Doherty.

Bob Morris -I was the Fifth Libertine -Two Years with the Band

Written by Bob Morris

/i was the fifth libertine -two years with the band bob morris zani.j

Well, not exactly the 5th – about 11th – but certainly in the squad. It’s funny but when I did university, one of the few lectures I actually turned up for and enjoyed was about group dynamics and the sum of the parts being bigger than the whole: that’s the key to all the best bands I’ve ever liked. Weller was never as (consistently) good as The Jam, and Strummer and Jones, Brown, yes yes, they’ve all made some blinding stuff afterwards but what can compare with what they did in the band… why?

About Us

ZANI was conceived in late 2008 and the fan base gradually grew by word of mouth. Key contributors came from those of the music, film and fashion industry and the voice of ZANI grew louder. So, when in 2013 investor, contributor and fan of ZANI Alan McGee* offered his support to help restyle and relaunch the site it was inevitable that traffic would increase dramatically and continues to grow. *Alan McGee co-founder of Creation Records and new label 359 Music..
