Britpop non-stop
Do you scornfully call popular music the word "pop"? Really, you should not be so categorical. Not everything is bad, which is called the word "pop." Especially if it is…

A little talk about love. Interview with Father John Misty

For many years, Joshua Tilman writes songs: for a while he was a drummer of Fleet Foxes, and after that he recorded 2 albums already as Father John Misty.

Due to the fact that the interview was taken on the eve of Valentine’s Day, Stefan Greiner devoted the column “A Little Talk About …” to the topic of love. This is no coincidence: Tilman’s album “I Love You, Honeybear” is filled with love, oysters, sex and massacres.

It’s hard for me to talk about love because it does not exist. The word “love” is rather just a term to mean Continue reading

Hello my little Mercury …

I have wanted to write to you for so long … I searched for words and clumsily built expressions, secretly hoping that my letter would someday be published on adme.ru and dozens of readers would write “This is so inspiring!”. But then I realized that I really didn’t want this at all. I wanted you to forget what britishwave.ru, adme.ru and just “www” in any form are.

Yes, and night hangs in YouTube – this is also okay, even despite the fact that you do not go to school, because you sleep off. Would YouTube be in my youth – I would do that too. By the way, the next time you surf there, be sure to see how Hendrix fires a guitar. The coolest video, Bellamy (well, the guy from Muse) after him took up the music, while Continue reading

As it was a long time ago, or the first concerts of famous performers.

Everything happens for the first time. Even the most powerful oak grows from a tiny acorn. And it is always interesting to remember how it all began.

BritishWave.ru offers to go on an incredible journey to find out where the famous musicians and their groups started, and how their first concerts went on long before they performed in large concert halls and stadiums.

Blur debuted on June 21, 1989, although they were then called Seymour. Where? At the East Anglia Railway Museum, at a relative’s birthday party with Damon Albarn’s relative. Not really. “We were extremely energetic, smashed the drum kit, smashed the guitars. In general, everything went fine, Continue reading
