Robert Plant Shifts Space And Time At Royal Albert Hall

Like every well-worn rock ‘n roll story, Robert Plant’s has definite touchstones. He possesses one of the genre’s finest voices. He’s the original golden god who, with Led Zeppelin, defined what it is to be a rock star. He’s not one for nostalgia, turning his back on lucrative reunions to focus on creating music that pays no heed to genre. He loves Morocco, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and having a pint in his North London local. But he could also be considered something of an anthropologist or musicologist. Clearly fueled by an innate curiosity, Plant is well versed in the musical...

Feature: Taking A Family To Glastonbury Festival

While Glastonbury Festival 2016 might not have had the torrential downpours and rivers of mud the festival makes the headlines for, the festival site was certainly waterlogged leaving the festival one of the muddiest in memory. Everywhere was damp and there were very distinct types of mud, from the soothing diarrhoea-consistency mud that made it quite easy to float through, the heavy sticky stuff that was the new home to many a welly alongside the massive puddles of mud that were best to steer clear of altogether. And as my then six-month pregnant wife re-inserted her foot into a...

Photography: Friday @ Glastonbury Festival 2017

There is absolutely no way to do Glastonbury Festival justice with a single pair of eyes (or camera lens) as the site is simply huge, and seems all the bigger with the 200,000 odd festival-goers roaming the boulevards, fields, tents, hills and gullies of the 900 acre site. But here is what I managed to catch, running around the festival on Friday. While many would have headed for the festival’s famous Pyramid Stage to see the festival officially opened by the Hacienda Classical, proceedings on The Other Stage for the weekend were kicked off Chrissie Hynde‘s The Pretenders, the Anglo-American...

LIve: Chrissie Hynde @ Koko

Chrissie Hynde takes to the stage of London’s Koko to bring us a pre-Christmas blast of old hits and new songs, from her first solo album, Stockholm. Strikingly, she has retained the look, demeanor and attitude that has characterised her position at the helm of the The Pretenders since the late 1970s. But more striking still is the distinctive and recognisable voice that rings out on tracks including Kid, Don’t Get Me Wrong and Talk Of The Town. There’s a fair number of new tracks rolled out tonight, such as Sweet Nuthin’, Dark Sunglasses and You Or No One...
