BEING FRANK SIDEBOTTOM

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...

COVERS AND REMIXES

So I'm here to elaborate on my previous point of how a cover version or remix of a song can be better than the original. It's up for debate whether these are an improvement but I'll keep it simple and list some examples that prove that it can work ...
