No Doubt - 'Settle Down'

No Doubt - 'Settle Down'

Seven years in to making their new album and Gwen Stefani and her men have reassuringly not evolved one iota from last time round. ‘Settle Down’ is another zingy exercise in fluoro-ska with a dancehall twist to make those of us who like that...

No Doubt : Bathwater/It's My Life

No Doubt : Bathwater/It's My Life

Burdened with the knowledge that their days as enormo-trousered stadium-stuffers poised to smite the funk out of the mainstream with their ska-pop daftery are now little more than a vaguely embarrassing memory, No Doubt have found themselves...

No Doubt : Singles 1992-2003

No Doubt : Singles 1992-2003

Suicide, intraband relationships, tabloid mawlings, record company fallouts and The Simpsons – No Doubt have endured it all. Away from the public image of go-getters and effortless hipsters, they’ve have had the kind of careers that’d...

No Doubt : Underneath It All

No Doubt : Underneath It All

It was a soppy song, ‘Don’t Speak’, that first made No Doubt 's name all those years ago. Now, of course, we know them as a perky, genre-hopping pop unit, all up-beats and primary colours, fronted by a real life Powerpuff Girl. But, "...

No Doubt : Hella Good

No Doubt : Hella Good

Will No Doubt take us to funky town? Yes! With Nellee Hooper at the controls and a role-call of inspiration flashes that reads like the Guinness Book Of Hit Singles With The Crap Ones Taken Out: starts off like ‘Billie Jean’, straight into a...

No Doubt : London King's Cross Scala

Ready for that dancehall ska-punk new wave bubblegum supergroup? Me neither. But here No Doubt are, hurling themselves through genre after genre at this low-key show at the Scala like ace sprinters who've decided they'll take on all comers at...

No Doubt  :  Hey Baby

No Doubt : Hey Baby

Things are going well for glamourpuss Gwen. Gavin's finally going to make an honest woman out of her, and now that No Doubt have shelved odious ska-punk in favour of giddy hip-hop-tinged pop, she can finally put the belly and bindi days behind...

No Doubt  :  Rock Steady

No Doubt : Rock Steady

After years of being in No Doubt , the last five spent enjoying cred-free superstardom, 2001 saw frontwoman and band face Gwen Stefani indulging in a little reinvention. Nothing fundamental, just a couple of unexpected collaborations and a...

Return Of Saturn

Return Of Saturn

When it comes to love and songwriting, honesty is not necessarily the best policy. Poor old Gwen Stefani , frontwoman in No Doubt and off-again/on-again girlfriend of Bush 's Gavin Rossdale , has a lot to learn. Though this is her...

London W1 Hanover Grand

London W1 Hanover Grand

No who? You might justifiably ask. It's been a full year-and-a-half since the SoCal hi-NRG ska-pop tag-team last stepped on a stage, and a massive four since their big weepie, 'Don't Speak' , hastened them fame-wards on a magic carpet of damp...
