Listen, Again: Why George Michael's Pop Masterpiece Will Rightly Be Reappraised

One of the final acts of George Michael's creative life was to oversee both the re-issue and re-evaluation of perhaps his most misunderstood, yet greatest pieces of work. Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 was released to a changing world - musically and otherwise - in the autumn of 1990, wrong-footing critics and fans alike.

Lifting The Veil On Hollywood Journalism

In truth, there were lines we weren't allowed to cross, not so much because The Star had any particular moral compass or even because the powers-that-be were afraid of getting sued. It was more a matter of sales: there were certain stories people simply didn't want to read.

Thatcher, AIDS and Hopelessness: Growing Up Gay in The 1980s and 90s

I don't sit around feeling sorry for myself as a result of my experiences of growing up gay in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Indeed, there were other factors in my childhood, entirely unrelated to my sexuality, that exerted negative forces on that period of my life.

10 Kids TV Shows From the 90s That Saved Me From a Life of Internet Notoriety

Kids' TV today isn't what it used to be - it's all CGI and 3D. Back in my day, the most exciting plot twist involved a character opening their lunch box only to realise that their mum had packed them TWO Wagon Wheels, instead of one.

I'm a little bit sad there isn't a bit more photographic evidence of my late teens and early 20s as I was four stone lighter and often went out without a bra on without them flapping around my knees. But I am glad that no one will ever get to witness the time I was was left stood crushed in New Street Station, dumped, weeping under the departures board. Braless and thin.

McAlmont & Butler: A Conversation...

Bernard Butler had a great idea- he often has them- to film a discussion with each other about The Sound of McAlmont & Butler, our 1995 album, to accompany its reissue and a short tour later this year. Instead of asking a journalist to pose questions we would just have a conversation about the album in a cafe or something.

OK so with hindsight our lives were a little bit more unhealthy and risky. But it makes me sad as we were free to be innocent. We could run around outside and eat crap and pretend to be Spuggy from Byker Grove, not some polished American beauty queen...

Computers In The 1990s Were Actually Brilliant

Though I'm running the risk of sounding like a person a lot older and more disillusioned with the state of this new-fangled world than myself, I will say it, HALLOWEEN IS NOT AS SCARY AS IT WAS BACK IN THE DAY! And by 'back in the day', I mean the day of the S Club 7 and constant Kenan and Kel re-runs...so around 10 years ago. You know what I mean though.

Babysitting. Something about which I have vivid memories; a teenage part-time-job. And now it's come full circle, as what seems like five minutes later, I'm all grown-up and paying a teenager to mind my kids.

When Did Nineties Kids Become So Old?

It would be a lie to suggest that nothing changes. I no longer throw extended, highly emotional screaming matches at being forced to eat sprouts, like I did when I was 12. Or wet the bed, like I did when I was 12. But fundamentally, it doesn't feel so different. I for one prefer a Tracey Beaker omnibus and ice cream to paying bills.

Ride - Two Great Albums During a Great Period for Music

William Barns-Graham | Posted 22.10.2012 | UK Entertainment
William Barns-Graham

The early 90s was a booming period for new music and new genres, one that perhaps has not been matched since. Ride certainly had their role to play within this with their two LPs from the period Nowhere and Going Blank Again. Overshadowed and perhaps underrated, recent rereleases and the 2001 best of compilation should hopefully preserve the great music they created during this period. Already regarded as one of the great shoegaze bands, Ride should also be regarded as one of the great bands of the 90s.
