Classical music is a problematic term - it actually refers to a period of musical development from around 1750 to 1820, during which particular formats were developed - things like symphonies, operas and concertos.
Fin and I first met at a house party four years ago. He'd just been to see The XX at Maida Vale studios earlier that day, so was feeling musically inspired to start something new. Although we didn't form THIEF that year, we began sending each other music we liked and kept in contact while I was studying at Sussex Uni in Brighton and he was DJing and running club nights in London.
Enrique casually leans on one woman's nearly naked bottom, while another woman grinds hers into his right ear. He buries his handsome face in the crevice of the first woman's arse. The camera pans across a room filled with women in bikinis, lacy lingerie, and see-through underwear. The men are fully clothed.
Born on this day, 6 February 1945, Bob Marley, singer, songwriter and guitarist. Marley's influence is unparalleled, irrespective of race, colour or creed, he is credited with helping spread both Jamaican music and the Rastafari movement to a worldwide audience.
At a time when many talented Hungarians are abandoning their home country with promises of fame and success abroad, The Carbonfools may have an international outlook, but Hungary remains their home.
The Last of the Troubadours arrive in our midst from that very English tradition of live playing, blended with a lyricism that has been informed by everything that rock, pop, soul and folk has thrown into the mix.
So what is Strummerville? In the years after Joe Strummer, legendary member of pioneering punk group The Clash, passed away, his friends and family set up a not-for-profit charity that aimed to reflect his particular values and musical contributions by offering support, resources and performance opportunities to artists who wouldn't normally have access to them.
My point is merely that it is the adulation and idolising of a single star that I take umbrage with, and not the behaviour of the star. It's the parent that allows their child to become so swallowed up in a single thing that I take issue with.
Lots of kids say they are going to run away, some mean it, some do not; some slip out and hang out at the end of the street until they get hungry, bored or realise that their bluff has been called. For me the notion of running away had become very real.
There I was on the ropes at Abbey Road. Maybe it was a mistake to try and stand toe to toe with an uninterested, chatty audience. At least Jimmy Page was paying attention.
Reviews of Autobiography confirmed my worst fears: he would spend far too long detailing a complicated court case against his former band-members and not enough time describing how it must have felt to press something so pure as Hatful of Hollow or Meat is Murder to vinyl. But then - what do critics know?
Last month I wrote a piece entitled 'Leopards And Spots - Why The Labels Never Change'. It was about record companies and the relationship that they have with performers. I compared my own personal experience of record companies and publishers back in the 1970s with the contracts that I now see being offered to MU members on a weekly basis.
It's fair to say I've found a new love of the theatre, and modern tech means that people can experience the west end from hundreds of locations around the world. This is truly exciting. Not only that, but I think I am a Shakespeare convert.
I hope the millions who watch Coronation Street will be tantalised by the short excerpts they heard of both pieces and hunt down the full works. Their efforts will certainly be rewarded.
In my experience, care homes can be joyous, vibrant places. And re-injecting spontaneity back into the home can rapidly have a positive effect on the wellbeing of both individuals and the whole community.
The End, it seems, is nigh. "It's strange in rock culture just now," Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie told BBC4's Review Show in December. "It's kinda dead, I think. It's over." The Cult's Ian Astbury, meanwhile, has decided that the album has also reached the end of the line.
