    “A distant echo. Of faraway voices boarding faraway trains…” The Jam’s classic single “Down In The Tube Station at Midnight”  evokes a very real fear – not completely eroded – of being trapped in a violent

    I knew all about Cliff ‘cos of Auntie Chris. She’s still going strong, well into her seventies, but I’ll tell you what she lived the life. She married a bloke who was the spit of Stanley Baker and was a big fan of british rock and roll from

    Commemorating the great war in song is a serious business, and yet it’s the heartfelt works that spring to mind on the anniversary. Lemmy Kilmister was and still is one of British rock’s legend outsiders. Never taken seriously by critics, he was

    On 1st of August it is Yorkshire Day; when we celebrate the auld county. Eons ago I ran a website devoted to Yorkshire, and once published a charts of the top 50 Yorkshire songs of all time – and I’m highly tempted to roll it out again to remind

    This is England

    Jul 28, 14 • 1480 Views • BritishComments Off on This is England

    The last great single by one of England’s finest bands, The Clash. It’s pretty much a solo number by a world weary Joe Strummer, trying to strike a spark beneath the embers of a band whose fire had long gone out.

    Almost thirty years ago one of England’s best garage acts got lumped into a music mag campaign called C-86. A pre Brit-pop attempt to collect the leading indie acts of the day into a handy British music movement and sell a few papers.

    As a kid living in a coalfield backwater and getting into punk rock there was a big local problem. Everyone else. At 15 it was clear that all my musically-inclined peers were into traditional long haired rock, and Led Zeppelin were, at the time, considered

    Appreciating Richard Hawley’s Cole’s Corner
