“MY VOICE? I’VE GOT IT ON LOAN FROM GOD”

Little Anthony Gourdine has one of the most distinctive sounds in music, and the dramatic, heartrending records he created with his group, The Imperials, are undying classics of both doo-wop and soul. Spencer Leigh meets him After a long friendship with Michael Jackson, a torrid marriage with Liza Minnelli and eating a kangaroo’s testicle in the jungle, David Gest has become a soul music …

MOUTHS ALMIGHTY

MOUTHS ALMIGHTY

The Flaming Lips used to be a normal, slow-moving band. Now, in the time it’s taken you to read this, they’ve probably cut an EP. And one that’s scarily good and edgy too.

View: standing, rear Black Wolf and a spirited performance from Jett Black got the party off to a splendid start, before Kip Winger and his namesake band, including ex-Whitesnake riff-cruncher, Reb Beach.
