Album Review: Blink-182 - 'Neighborhoods'

Blink-182 - 'Neighborhoods'

With their first LP since 2003, it feels like Blink-182 basically had two options. They could re-embrace the poop gags and Red Bull-soaked riffs that had won them millions of fans all over the plane,t or they could keep going with the taste for...

Box Car Racer : I Feel So

Box Car Racer : I Feel So

Or ‘Dude, Where’s My Tune?’ as it will henceforth be known by those who prefer their bozo-pop fun-dappled and interesting rather than over-earnest and cobblers. Box Car Racer is, of course, the "brainchild" of Blink 182 ’s Tom DeLonge...

Blink 182 : Take Off Your Pants And Jacket

Blink 182 : Take Off Your Pants And Jacket

"It's way more punk rock than our previous records!" gibbers Blink's Tom Delonge. Well we'll be the judge of that, sonny, so sit down, suck yer Sunny D and shut the fuck up. Staccato mosh-drums, brittle-boned punk-superlite guitar, whiny vocals...

Blink 182: Melbourne Rod Laver Arena

Blink 182: Melbourne Rod Laver Arena

The ubiquitous tour t-shirts read November, but what's a five-month postponement when you're in retarded animation? "Hey, I just had diarrhoea," quips Blink 182 's zany guitarist Tom DeLonge for openers. "I'm not supposed to eat poop!"...

The Mark, Tom & Travis Show: The Enema Strikes Back

The Mark, Tom & Travis Show: The Enema...

The Mark, Tom & Travis Show: The Enema Strikes Back (MCA Records) It's been said before that Americans can't do irony. And although such stereotyping may be unfair, listening to Blink-182 really does make you wonder. You hope that...

Blink 182 : What's my age again

Blink 182 : What's my age again

More mindless, punk-pop guitar-thrashing from the world's current favourite American brats. This one's about grown men acting like children, playing pranks and not quite knowing how to get the girl - a subject so well-known to the Beavis &...

Los Angeles Great Western Forum

Los Angeles Great Western Forum

The weight of 2,000 fevered Blink-182 fans causes a barrier to collapse on this, the second night of the band's US tour. After security hold back the rampant throng and hastily rebuild a stronger barrier, the band romp through a 15-song set...

London WC2 Astoria

London WC2 Astoria

Aaaroooga! Bassist Mark Hoppus ' penis - leathery from years of self-abuse - bends to the left. Guitarist Tom DeLonge 's - the punier of the two cocktail sausages - bends to the right. Or so Tom tells us, during one of his spots of inter-song...

London WC2 Borderline

London WC2 Borderline

Sun-drenched pop-punk brimming with melody, wit and energy or third-rate NOFX copyists? One thing's for certain, with their tattoos, big shorts and MTV -friendly sing-alongs, we won't be seeing the back of these dorks until the next...

Enema Of The State

Enema Of The State

'Enema Of The State' is a remarkable record. It's loud. It's fast. It has a babe in a nurse's uniform on the sleeve. And, in Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge , Blink 182 have two vocalists who couldn't kiss their own mothers without sporting...
