We must try to distinguish good performers from bad ones. Interview with Selfieman

Selfieman is a new project of multi-instrumentalist Nikolai Stravinsky, a member of such groups as Cockroaches !, Missiles from Russia and Fairy Dragee.

Among the catalog of cultural and spiritual Continue reading

Radiohead: Where do we go next?

In connection with the 20th anniversary of the album “The Bends” John Harris recalls the difficult story of the creation of Radiohead’s masterpiece.
It was February 1994, and Radiohead had two minor problems: Britain and America. Oasis was quite successful in their homeland, and their Blur label mates were preparing to release Parklife. What we now know as Brit pop was gaining momentum at that time, and the five outsiders of the indie rock from Oxford had no idea what to do with all this.

“I was overwhelmed with paranoia,” Tom York later recalled. “Blur decided to be mods, we had to become something else. But I just couldn’t figure out what.” Continue reading
