Before she returns to the UK for shows with Against Me! and Northcote I had a bit of electric mail chatter with Billy the Kid

Ahead of an extensive UK tour I catch up with Brooklyn punkers the So So Glos to talk rock n roll, baseball and basements.

Before the release of his first album under his own name, I sat down for a chat with one of the UK's best up-and-coming songwriters, Rob Lynch.

I've discovered some of my favourite songwriters by accident. They've been at open mic nights, they've...

I chat to one half of the Scandinavian electronic duo

I catch up with Black Moth, one of the new wave of British bands putting the heavy back into rock

I speak to Barry Johnson from gutsy punk rockers Joyce Manor on the band's inspirations and aspirations

It's always irked me that something that seldom gets mentioned about the first wave of punk rock is how it unleased a new...

I talk poetry, politics and Tina Turner with Jess Green

A comedian will tell that timing is everything. This is equally true for musicians, if not quite for the same reasons. Sometimes a musician can be ahead of their time, or even out of it.

For acts like the Velvet Underground it can...

Olugbenga Adelekan has had the kind of nomadic lifestyle that creates a properly international ambition in a musician. Born in Lagos Nigeria, then moving to Holland as a youngster before attending university at Cambridge and then finally settling in the not-so-sleepy seaside town...
