Wednesday, 05 November 2008 Interviews
Dan Prince let's rip...The teenager who sneaked into his neighbours house and set fire to her budgie - how funny is that? • Nearly as funny as the loser who lit a cigarette in his 'environmentally friendly gas powered car' and blew it up - with him inside it. • Being stuck behind a learner driver down a country lane - what a pain in the arse. • Having to take a shit in the woods whilst out walking your dogs when caught short. • The ...

Manu Chao ‘Minha Galera’This is one of my all time favorite songs. I always said that I will someday dance with my future wife (whoever she may end up being) to this song at my wedding on a beach in South America. I know, I am a sap. But to me this song evokes strong feelings of love. This is the best song off of my favorite Manu Chao album - in my opinion, and I love every song on this album.The Smiths ‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’ I am a huge Smiths fan. Their music is just full on po...

Meet Pearl... India's Numero Uno

Wednesday, 29 October 2008 Interviews
How has the music scene developed in India?"Music has always been integral to our culture.  We have some of the best singers and musicians in our country though very few might be relevant to the world at large and fewer might be able to crossover or think it necessary to do so in their careers. The strongest scene in India is music from the Indian film industry.  It has roots in older Hindi film music which owes a lot of it's essence to Indian Classical.  There is also a healthy audience for roc...
