Thu 22 Mar 2018
Bruce Springsteen’s Broadway run has been extended through to the end of the year, making it one of the largest undertakings in a career partly defined by large undertakings. What began as a curio has become an important chapter in one of modern rock’s most engaging stories.

Beyond The Supernova: Talking G3 and Guitar Innovation With Joe Satriani
Tue 24 Apr 2018
Photo: Joseph Cultice When he broke onto the scene in the 1980s Joe Satriani was surfing with the alien, but over the course of the last decade the six-string guru has been riding a wave of popularity that continues to pick up pace.

Jack White - Boarding House Reach (Album Review)
Mon 26 Mar 2018
While Jack White has never been the most kempt figure, his music has always possessed meticulous attention to detail.

Thirty Seconds To Mars - America (Album Review)
Mon 09 Apr 2018
Thirty Seconds To Mars have a habit of tapping into the musical zeitgeist. Their self-titled debut capitalised on the fallout from nu-metal at the start of the millennium, while their breakthrough, ‘A Beautiful Lie’, rode high on the emo wave of mid-2000s. More recent releases - ‘This is War’ and ‘Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams’ - followed the trend of infusing anthemic guitar music with outsized electronics.
