We never liked that people would have to pay for our music. Interview with Alt-J

In September 2014, the British indie rock band Alt-J introduced their new album, “This Is All Yours”, which soared to the top of UK TOP10 with lightning speed.

In two short years, the Leeds quartet has established itself as one of Britain’s most innovative bands, breaking down musical barriers just like Pink Floyd or Radiohead at the peak of their careers.

Their debut album “An Awesome Wave”, released two years ago, allowed the group to take a place among Britain’s newest inventive talents, collecting a bunch of awards, including “Best Album” at the Ivor Novello Awards and “Mercury Prize ‘2012”, with sales of 300,000 albums and 400,000 singles.

Guitar music is not in the best position right now. Interview with Eighteen Nightmares At The Lux

Music at the junction of honesty and outrageous is Eighteen Nightmares At The Lux. Sometimes it seems that they belong to a different era – the times when the concerts of glam rock and punk stars were a real escape from the gray routine for ordinary English youth who belonged to the working class.

If they did not exist in reality, there would certainly be a writer or screenwriter who would invent and drive crazy thousands of fans and fans of fan fix. Fortunately, Eighteen Nightmares At The Lux is more than real, and in September 2014 returned to the big road with the new EP “Mouth To Mouth” and a UK mini-tour.

On this occasion, BritishWave.ru learned about the history of Londoners and their plans for the future. Continue reading

Teignmouth: The city where Muse lives

How many people know the town of Teignmouth, which is located in the south of England and has a population of 15,000 people? Not even all Britons have heard of this. But in every country, no matter how far it is from the UK, there are people who must know about this city, believe me. And the culprits of this geographic enlightenment are Matthew Bellamy, Dominic Howard and Christopher Wollstenholm.

The small but very beautiful Teignmouth has almost a thousand-year history, several attractions, is one of the favorite places for the rest of the British and is proud that in 1818 the great English poet John Keats was resting in it. But at the end of the twentieth century, the city received another reason for pride – the local group Muse, which for more than ten years has been gathering full stadiums around the world.

Nick Cave: The Dark Knight’s Revival

In honor of the thirtieth anniversary of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ debut album “From Her To Eternity”, the NME editors decided to recall an interview with Nick Cave, published by the magazine in 1984, during the beautiful and chaotic period following the breakup of his band The Birthday Party.

When Nick Cave created his image at the very beginning of the existence of The Birthday Party, he resembled a woman with tuberculosis from an absurd birthday described in Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment, sitting in a corner coughing into a handkerchief and showing bloody spots of the assembled company. He was a disgusting exhibitionist, constantly demanding attention. Subsequently, this image was transformed into a slowly and painfully moving snail, turning its own mucus into art. Continue reading
