Blur’s 24 Greatest Songs Stories

Blur’s eighth studio album, “The Magic Whip”, will be released April 27, 2015: the beginning of a new era in the band’s history is very close.
To set the mood, we offer you stories of creating 24 songs of pioneers of Brit-pop.
“Beetlebum” talks about Damon Albarn’s passion for heroin. “That period in the lives of many people was obscured by heroin. A lot of what happened then.”

Perhaps their most famous song, “Song 2,” was just a draft. “I remember I had a terrible hangover. I tried to come up with a name for the series that my friend wrote about rock wives. And then it dawned on me,” Hits and Mrs! “. And on this, I decided, my day job is over. That same thing with “Song 2.” We didn’t Continue reading

I am a very happy person. Interview with Noel Gallagher

Actually, we wanted to write about the “asshole from the working class,” but the quote above is more shocking.

After the meeting of Daniel Koch with the musician, the realization came: Noel Gallagher is a damn sweet guy, and not at all a boisterous asshole, as many people used to see him. He only pretends to be that way and it gives him a lot of pleasure.

You can look to the future with hope. Interview with Neon Lights

St. Petersburg electronic duo Neon Lights was created by two music critics Yevgeny Lazarenko and Max Hagen, in response to the many cries of offended musicians “first try, then criticize.”

Neon Lights is a vibrant new-wave dance project that sounds equally good both on the festival stage and in the club space, and even from the disc of a beginner DJ in a bar on Dumskaya Street.

In anticipation of the band’s performance on May 10, BritishWave.ru talked to the musicians in the new A2 club’s Sputnik Hall, asking them about festivals, the future of the music scene in Russia, and learned the formula for a successful band.

Are you worried about the future?
Max Hagen: I worry, even like that. Yesterday I went to the store and not just worried, I was terribly paired when I got a cash receipt for some garbage. Today, he became even more tired when our keyboard player, who returned from a forced link, began to push ideas on how to get to Moscow. I don’t know what Continue reading
