Alabama 3 and Basement Jaxx for Brixton Benefit Party This Weekend

Basement Jaxx, Stereo MCs and Freestylers are among a list of artists that will be doing DJ sets this weekend at the Brixton Jamm Benefit Party in aid of Triangle Adventure Playground. Local act Alabama 3 are also due to be performing live at the event alongside the likes of Rodney P, Dub Pistols and Howard Marks aka Mr Nice.

All of the money raised will be donated to the Triangle Adventure Playground Association, a local charity run by volunteers. Triangle is one of London’s oldest adventure playgrounds, offering giant swings, a zip line and a climbing tower as well as art-based activities. As the only permanent young people’s organisation working in an inner-city area increasingly notorious for lethal gang crime, the Triangle provides a safe haven for young people who would otherwise be hanging out on the street. But recently, the playground has been forced to cut its opening hours due to financial difficulties.


The full line-up is as follows:

Friday 27th January
Mz Bratt (live)
Rodney P
Congo Natty (aka Rebel MC) with Tenor Fly
Alabama 3 (live)
Dubpistols
DJ Biznizz
The Correspondents (live)

Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.

Swearin' - Fall Into The Sun (Album Review)
Thu 01 Nov 2018
Space can be good, whether it’s allowing us to take a break from people or helping intrigue to blossom in the moments left unfilled in a piece of music. Left to our own devices, we are able to take stock, gain perspective and ultimately grow. It feels like Swearin’, who split in 2015 when guitarists and vocalists Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride ended their romantic and musical relationship, would back that sentiment.
Richard Ashcroft - Natural Rebel (Album Review)

Photo: Robin Pope Here’s a thing. Do you remember when Rod Stewart was cool? Probably not. It’s been over 40 years since Faces, the original lad-rockers, split. Perhaps you remember when Sting was cool instead, then? But once the Police went the same way as Stewart’s mob, their frontman launched a similarly disappointing solo career.
