The Chemical Wedding

WELL AT LEAST THEY GOT something right. Considering the ill-conceived dog's breakfast of a movie that is [I]Velvet Goldmine[/I], and the deeply questionable, hackneyed view it takes of pop music…

Beretta 70 – Roaring Themes From Italian Police Films (1971-80)

TOO MUCH INTELLIGENCE CAN BE A bad thing. Bruce Dickinson could tell you about such a concept what with him being that rarest of things: a heavy metal hero with…

The Antidote

IT'S EASY TO IMAGINE SOMEONE LIKE soundtrack zealot Geoff Barrow, Portishead's Sultan Of Samples, salivating at the prospect of 'Beretta 70...'. Because while the dustbowl twang of the spaghetti western…

Classee X

NOT SO MUCH AN END AS A NEW BEGINNING, Q-Tip, Phife and Ali-Shaheed Muhammad's final album as a group does at least point to the continued survival of hip-hop as…

Lollo Rosso

OCCASIONALLY, WE ALL WISH WE were someone else. Baby Birkin certainly do. They come from London, yet they are a band so Francophile in nature that not only is their…

Speak Of The Devil

NEVER KNOWING WHEN ENOUGH'S enough, that's Sean O'Hagan's problem. Having taken his infatuation with the symphonic intricacies of The Beach Boys to almost clinically insane levels, on his last album…
