Don't steal our sun

Advantages: A great sound, well produced, good live.
Disadvantages: Some songs can be a little boring in places.

...I saw this band live at V-Festival back in 2005, the place was pretty much life-less and subdued. However, when The Thrills took the stage the majority of the crowd were singing along and dancing to the bands chilled out indie/rock sound. The Thrills, ...

Value for Money

By Fuddy Malentine

Advantages: Excellent music
Disadvantages: A little out there....

...Formed in 1984, Irish/british quartet were in the Indy - kid days of my youth, revered by spotters and the music press. Even now I reckon you'd have to be fairly geeky to have heard of them, although one of their tunes is featured in the Sophia Coppola fi ...

The Madcap laughs.

Advantages: Highly original songwriting. Truly unique.
Disadvantages: Very experimental music. Not for everyone.

In 1968, everything was going well for Syd. The writer of Piper at The Gates of Dawn and the hugely successful singles Arnold Layne and See Emily Play, he was surely destined for pop stardom. And then the wheels began to come off the wagon . . . Piper ...

Curvacious!

Advantages: Very original at the time
Disadvantages: Underrated

You will probably find Curve today filed under the "Criminally Ignored" section of the musical spectrum. This is a band who heavily influenced another band that in turn became far more successful- Garbage- and yet never really achieved anything beyond a c ...

Bad rapper with a guitar? Whose idea was this?

Advantages: It might make you laugh the first time you hear it
Disadvantages: Your laughing because it so bad its funny

After hearing Kid Rock on TV, I thought he was funny and so bought an album. What a waste of £15. This wannabe badass has simply attempted to see how many times he can say f*** and still have a song. Its not as if its needed. Im not easily offended and ha ...
