The acoustic version of 'Wild Horses' is just as, if not, more beautiful than the original. Mick's voice is perfect here as he reminds us that his talents as a front man are not only reserved to the stage; he is truly one of the best singers Britain has produced.

Love and Rakets

Melding big riffs, discordant rhythms and romance, Raketkanon are probably not the sound you'd expect to come out of Belgium. I chat to, guitarist, Jef Verbeeck to see what makes them tick.

This list is going to be divisive. It's unavoidable. Some choices you will agree with, some you won't. Some might even prompt you to dust off those old CD's, or nip over to Spotify to see what you missed.

It is going to be a stellar couple of months for alt-rock releases from the north of the border and whilst the likes of Mogwai may dominate the music press column inches, it could be Halo Tora that make the most waves.

Bursting out the fertile Leeds scene, aggressive but classic rock minded noise mongers Super Luxury are a breath (or a blast) of fresh air the UK rock scene.

Wherever you look women are breaking through, and they are changing perceptions about what women are and what women can do. They are defying convention, expectation and criticism to pursue their dreams, reach their potential and enrich their life experience.

Finlay Morton: Number 10 to the Top Ten?

Jane Ireland | Posted 09.05.2015 | UK Entertainment
Jane Ireland

Born and raised in Aberdeen, Morton taught himself to play his brother's guitar at the age of ten before playing in several hometown bands as a teenager, moving to London "dreaming of stardom and large recording contracts". When neither materialised, Morton decided to get "a proper job" which is where the number 10 connection comes in.

iC1s and That London Thing

Jason Holmes | Posted 20.04.2015 | UK Entertainment

A band like iC1s, who sit calmly within the vanguard of the London scene and are rated by the likes of Carl Barat and Alan McGee, possess a lot of the old, natural swagger.

The Blink-182 Drama

So I'd imagine that most people have heard about the Blink-182 drama that hit the news this past week. As a self-professed music addict, I thought I'd chip in my two cents on the story. I'm not going to rehash the whole affair - a quick internet search will get you up to speed - and what I'm going to say doesn't have to only apply to this specific band.

Enter Shikari on Russell Brand, John Prescott, Apathy and Whether They'd Ever Stand as MPs

On Thursday I braved the London grizzle to meet Rou Reynolds and Rob Rolfe of Enter Shikari. The release of their fourth album is imminent (January 19th), so we were there to talk all things related to the collection of songs, aptly named 'The Mindsweep.'

Alias Kid, Banging Their Own Drum

These are men of the north country, a happy band of brothers who have staked their future on one roll of the dice. Or so it would seem were it not for the man who has stepped in to back the musical endeavours of Manchester-based band, Alias Kid.

Tim Cumming

This month saw the release of two full-length concert films with accompanying CDs and vinyl, from the 1975 Tour of the Americas and the Tattoo You trek of 1981. The Tour of the Americas was Ronnie Wood's first tour of duty, busy and fleet fingered around Keef's frankly brutalist, angular riffing at its crushing, decadent, sloppy best.

Why Radio 1 Moving The Rock Show to Sunday Night Is Smart. Really Smart.

Sunday 7 September 2014 saw the launch of Dan P Carter's Radio 1 Rock Show in its new (and brilliantly positioned) Sunday night slot on BBC Radio 1. It's a big statement, and one that should be congratulated, from the most important media outlet for new music in the UK.

Summer 2014 has been for me a succession of attempts to overcome my fear of heights, ably assisted by my kind, patient 13-year-old son. It has also been the UK's most fabulous staycation summer for years, and I don't blame David Cameron for taking a late break under such inviting English skies.

Planet Appetite: North Sea Jazz Festival 2014, Rotterdam, Holland

Now in its 38th Year, North Sea Jazz never fails to please and, this year, with Stevie Wonder and Pharrell Williams topping the bill, it was better than ever... It's a marvel of good organisation, as the sound is impeccable, everything starts on time, there's never really any crush and everyone's good natured.

Rocking on Heaven's Door

What is it about rock stars that won't make them quit while they're ahead? ... I mean, just think of some of the more hedonistic behaviour - eating bats (Ozzy Osbourne), the shark episode (Led Zepellin), urinating on the Alamo (Osbourne again) - if any of them behaved like that in a nursing home then they'd be dosed up and diagnosed with senile dementia.

I spoke to Rou Reynolds (vocals) and Rob Rolfe (drums) on the night of their much anticipated return to the live scene. A homecoming show, on the eve of a stint of global touring hitting Russia, Eastern Europe and the United States before coming back to a huge slot on this year's Reading and Leeds main stage.
