Reappraised: Phil Collins

Phil Collins, the ferret-faced uncle of pop, with his vocal sack of heartache from his Su Su studio of emotional longing, is a living, breathing revelation.

Jackie Moonbather Creativity in lockdown

Created in a single day this summer, it's no surprise that Jackie Moonbather's new track is imbued with an intimate, cocoon-like atmosphere. We asked Jackie, who moonlights as one of Katie Pham's Moonbathers, how 'Jones On The Phone' came into being.

HYPERSTITION DUO Anti-capitalist sound scramblers share new music

HYPERSTITION DUO is the new project from Alex and Flora of much-missed Sheffield band Blood Sport. Their second EP, METABOLIC RIFT, is now available to preorder on their own POLYPHONIC ASSEMBLAGE label - and they've shared a teaser of mind-melting new track 'AUGURY' with us.

Reappraised: Robert Palmer

Do you own any greatest hits compilations? Maybe buried in your car’s snuff box you’ve got Queen's Greatest Hits II or Michael Jackson’s Number Ones, or even B*Witched’s Blame It On The Hits. You’re only human after all.

Reappraised: The Beautiful South

In 1998 a song about the male appendage reached the top of the charts. I can’t think of another song with a similar subject matter to achieve the same dazzling heights of success since ‘My Ding-a Ling’ became a hit for Chuck Berry in 1972.

Reappraised: Lighthouse Family

When two likely lads from the fishing port of Newcastle upon Tyne stormed the charts with the soulful, easy listening pop gem ‘Lifted’, the fishing community rejoiced as one of their own had hit the big time.

Reappraised: Limp Bizkit

Nu metal is now old metal. That places Limp Bizkit somewhere at the forefront of the Bronze Age, smelting a heady mix of rock and rap in a clay pot of 'nookie' and backwards caps.
