Jonsi music video for Animal Arithmetic

  • 5th August 2010

I love Iceland. They may have ruined the UK’s local councils by going bankrupt and sent Europe into chaos with it’s ash cloud – but they have Bjork, Jonsi and a lesbian PM who managed to change the law so she can be fully married. Anyway Jonsi of Sigur Rós…

Roses, Kings and Castles – How Very English

  • 30th October 2008

“I play drums in Babyshambles but don’t let that put you off.” Good thing it didn’t, because whilst I adore Marmite, I’m not a fan of Babyshambles.  Adam Ficek, performing under the monicker Roses Kings Castles, is a DJing songwriting multi-instrumentalist whose talents would leave any baby in a shambles.  Adam…

The Crown Jewels of Australia

  • 16th August 2008

Isn’t it awful asking to hear someone’s music, only to feel like you’re bleaching your ears? To my great relief James Marple’s music was more like a gentle clean.
