THE ROLLING STONES – NO...

No Security captures a stand‐out Stones show, with the band on searing form during the closing leg of their American tour in San Jose. Treating the crowd to an up‐close and personal experience and leaving a frenzy in their wake. The set list spans from the mid‐sixties hit singles to the Bridges to Babylon album, including a bluesy, dramatic version of “Midnight Rambler”, a dark and swaggering “Out of Control”, and the rarely performed live, “Some Girls” and “Saint of Me”. The show was an electrifying, anthem‐packed, cross generational hot ticket, concluding yet another chapter from the band that wrote the book on rock ‘n’ roll.

SPOCK’S BEARD – NOISE FLOOR

SPOCK’S BEARD –...

Spock’s Beard are a band who are in a continual state of evolution, as is always the case with genuinely creative musicians. And their new album, ‘Noise Floor’, fits perfectly into this process. “We are always about evolution, not revolution. But what we have done this time is make the songs more melodic,” believes vocalist/guitarist Ted Leonard. “We still love our crazy prog, but now appreciate how important it is to grab people’s attention early on.” Leonard states furthermore: “If you enjoy what we have been doing on the past two albums, then I am sure there will be much that will appeal to you on Noise Floor. Some of the material this time is very bright and melodically appealing, while on the other hand there’s also a lot of dark tracks as well.” Long term fans of Spock’s Beard will find much to commend on what is the band’s 13th studio album. Both Leonard and Okumoto feel it is a natural development. “What ...

GORILLAZ – THE NOW NOW

A brand new studio album from Gorillaz titled The Now Now will be released by Parlophone Records on 29th June. The Now Now is 11 all-new songs from the World’s Most Successful Virtual Act*, produced by Gorillaz, with James Ford and Remi Kabaka, and recorded entirely at Studio 13, London in February this year. The album sessions for The Now Now saw the band largely eschewing guest stars, taking it back to the core creative crew: blue-haired, sweet-natured dreamer 2D on vocals; whip-smart Japanese badass Noodle on guitar; not forgetting Brooklyn-born philosopher and the meat–behind-the-beat Russel Hobbs on drums. And with Murdoc Niccals temporarily indisposed, bass duties on the new album have been taken up by erstwhile Gangreen Gang member Ace. A sun-drenched new video for first track ‘Humility’, starring a roller-skating 2D and a busking Jack Black, was directed by Jamie Hewlett and filmed entirely in Venice Beach, California last month. Virtual group ...
