NEW ORDER’S TOM CHAPMAN – THE INTERVIEW

When Peter Hook left New Order for the last time in 2007, he simply stated "Me and Bernard [Sumner] aren't working together". So a band reunion in 2011 found Tom Chapman stepping into his shoes, having filled the role admirably in Sumner's Bad Lieute

WELCOME BACK MARY POPPINS!

Wow, what a wonderful sequel! You'll know already that we here at The Journalix love Disney. I've been fully immersed in Cherry Tree Lane since seeing Julie Andrews become Mary Poppins as a child, but Mary Poppins Returns is a fabulous film and ev

TOP 30 SONGS OF 2018

Sam Fender, Florence, The Blinders, Jade Bird, Alex Turner

Here we go again gang! 12 months have passed and as the dust settles on 2018 we've put our heads together to decide on our favourite 30 songs from the year. The rule is no repeating artist and most importantly - it's in no particular order. Thank fuc...

LIAM WONG: THE INTERVIEW

Liam Wong Tokyo Cyberpunk Japan

You've probably already seen his work without knowing who was behind the camera. Most probably you won't have realised there was even a camera involved in the wonderful profile of work Liam Wong has quietly been putting together for his first book ...

HERE’S JOHNNY!

The Shining (1980) is undoubtably a masterpiece of a movie. Based on Stephen King's dark and twisted 1977 novel, directed by Stanley Kubrick in his prime and with Jack Nicholson at his menacing best, it's a complete thrill-ride, a rush, utterly enthr

OLLY KNIGHTS: THE INTERVIEW

We here at The Journalix are big fans of Turin Brakes. We're not going to introduce them to you as they've been around since the year 2000, but if you really don't recognise the name I'm sure you'll know their music. Lead singer Olly Knights original

REFORM DOVES

Have you heard the rumours? No, us neither. We've heard hints of Doves in Jimi Goodwin's solo work and the Williams' twins Black Rivers album, both fine records in their own right. But when you fuse them together it gives us something unique. Is it h...

STEVE BAYLEY: THE INTERVIEW

A couple of years ago we felt the need to tweet a song from The Open, an indie band with a Liverpudlian-sound. Curiously a band none of us had ever seen play live but we all adored the only 2 albums they had released; debut The Silent Hours in 2004 a...

DOCUFILM REVIEW: WHITNEY

We were lucky enough to attend a preview of the docufilm 'Whitney' earlier this week. Having heard good things the film opens with the shiny pop of Whitney Houston and exactly how I first knew her. Flashes of the video 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody', ...

“I THINK I’M GONNA BE SAD”… BUT AM I?

It wasn't the opening line I was expecting. When the opening riff to 'Ticket to Ride' plays, it immediately puts a smile on my face, I know it's The Beatles. I know it's played in the skiing scene in Help!, I know it's one of John's songs and I can l...
