David Stubbs: Mars by 1980: The Story of Electronic Music – book review

Stubbs' other great achievement is his complete lack of musical snobbery which can be apparent in many a book about a specific genre. He writes as lovingly and precisely about the works of Miles Davis as he does Fatboy Slim never comparing their inherent, or lack of, "greatness" instead just placing them as pieces in the giant puzzle that is the story of electronic music and one which has pieces being added every second of every day. Essential reading.

Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – One Writers Perspective

Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond is a beautiful and poignant documentary. Its power not only lies in the footage which was originally recorded by Kaufman's partner Lynne Margulies (played by Courtney Love in Man on the Moon) and the scenes showing Carrey (in full Andy Kaufman character) meeting Kaufman's family. It is a beautiful film because of its central message.

WATCH : video for Joe Gideon new single

Joe Gideon whose recent Manchester gig got a rave review on LTW here, has a great off the wall video for his new single here... With songs that switch from tombstone blues to pastoral psychedelia to sparse post-punk to grinding grooves. Songs of tension and release, lyrical bon mots and rhythmic power and imagination with very English melodies entwined around the songs
