THE RETURN OF A DAMNED JOE

THE RETURN OF A DAMNED JOE

Slated for making a mockery of The Clash, then drifting between acting roles and creating unfocused music, Joe Strummer spent a long period as a lost cause to rock’n’roll. But redemption came from unlikely sources. Kris Needs charts the fall and rise of a hero This one’s for Joe Strummer; I know he’s here somewhere,” grins Mick Jones, returning to the stage of the …

FOWL PLAY

FOWL PLAY

The legendary Kim Fowley, who died in January, talked (and talked and talked) to RC’s Spencer Leigh. We present just a few thousand non-stop words from him as a tribute It is a shame that no one thought to ask Kim Fowley what he thought of Andy Warhol. The white-haired icon was a major cultural figure and one of the most important artists of the 20th Century, but it’s easy to see links …

PRINCE OF DARKNESS

PRINCE OF DARKNESS

John Carpenter doesn’t only direct some of the most riveting and creepy movies ever released; he makes the music for most of them too. He talks to RC’s Harry Sword As a grand magus of celluloid suspense, John Carpenter is a master of bare bones simplicity, eschewing OTT theatrics and grand set pieces for a masterful sense of encroaching dread and all-enveloping tension.  Intrinsic in …

FRANCOIS TUSQUES WITH BARNEY WILEN - Le Nouveau Jazz

Rare French free jazz rediscovered Though an original Mint condition vinyl copy of this obscure 1967 LP (first issued on the Disques Mouloudji label) could cost serious collectors up to £600, it’s not actually pianist/composer Tusques’ most coveted recording – that honour falls to the impossibly rare 45 he cut in 1965 with Don Cherry, La Maison Fille Du Soleil. The latter …

IRON MAIDEN - Outside Iron Maiden by Erwin Lucas

Let the arguments begin… This mighty feat of research is the brainchild – or should that be Wrathchild? – of Maiden Holland website supremo Erwin Lucas. It marks a quest to finally log and record the antics of all members and ex-members of the Irons outside the confines of the metal behemoths.  A Who’s Who section kicks it all off, with both current and past members …

DARYL HALL & JOHN OATES - Live In Dublin

We can go for that… Hall & Oates brought their Philly soul to Dublin in 2014: the first time, as Daryl Hall frequently reminds the enthusiastic audience, the duo had ever played there.

MONSTER MAGNET - London Camden Electric Ballroom (15th February, 2015)

View: through a haze of smoke Power-tripping cult legends Monster Magnet were back in the capital almost a year to the day, with an impressive supporting cast. Prosperina opened, featuring stoner elements with a dash of melodic breeziness. Swedish bulldozers Bombus then imposed themselves with gargantuan riffs and solid conviction.  Monster Magnet have never made a secret of their Hawkwind …
