Male Friendship: Interview with FFS

Fans of unusual pop music, art rock provocateurs Sparks and Franz Ferdinand first met ten years ago. The promise to work together led to the recording of a full-length album called “FFS”, and, as Chris Cottingham from NME found out, it gave a lot of new strength to both groups.

The best Manchester bands of all time

The expression “Manchester music” itself has become tautological, given the activity with which this city generates significant groups. An almost impossible feat is to fit the unique Manchester scene of the 70s, 80s, 90s and the present into one list. But we did it.

Here are the groups that played at the cult club “Hacienda”, the leaders of the Oasis Britpop, and the icons of the 21st century The 1975. Manchester produces a more eclectic mixture of talents than its sometimes uniform reputation allows.

The stone roses
The best time to be a fan of The Stone Roses is right now. The group, whose self-titled debut album was Continue reading
