LIVE: BC CAMPLIGHT (ALBUM LAUNCH) – 23/01/2015

BC Camplight - GORILLA, MANCHESTER - What’s in my head right now is trying to suss out the connection between a potential Mancunian slow dance and a gorgeously dreamy Californian sound. I’m a bit off kilter on both counts.

The songs sound... Read More

Album Review: The Flaming Lips – With A Little Help From My Fwends

While the Beatles are remembered as a band that recorded staggeringly good albums, it is in the live arena that the Flaming Lips truly excel. Their shows are magical and euphoric, whereas even their best albums – The Soft Bulletin (1999) and Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots (2002) – are patchy. In short, they are yet to record their masterpiece. And this isn’t it. Twenty years ago Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was widely revered as... Read More
