Richard Hawley - 'Standing At The Sky’s Edge'

The slashers, the gamblers, the thieves; Sky Edge in Sheffield wasn’t the celestial scene the name suggests. In the 1920s the Flying Squad came to Yorkshire to clean up the gang warfare and gambling that blighted this lawless promontory...

For one night only, it’s the Albert Hawley!” proclaims tonight’s star attraction, clearly chuffed to bits to be playing this most salubrious of London venues. The Albert Hall is so aesthetically pleasing and historically iconic that it’s...

We begin as we end – Vincent Vincent And The Villains get things underway by paying homage to dark ’50s rock’n’roll. They make a decent fist of it, too, before James Chapman aka Maps take the stage. His electro-based gems seem a little...

Hawley, Richard : That's Alright Mama

A purely coincidental riposte to the commotion around the grisly 'A Little Less Conversation' one hopes, this finds the talented and leather-lunged Mr. Hawley crooning effortlessly through a 'version' of everyone's favourite truck-drivers...

Hawley, Richard : Baby You're My Light

One of the records on this page could be Number One next Sunday - tragically, it won't be this one, but perhaps with the kind of low-key epiphanies that Richard Hawley trades in, that's fairly appropriate. The perfect combination of hopeless...
