When you first see Cesaria Evora, you see a woman who hardly walks – she moves with the world-weary shuffle of a woman who has lived a long while – she'll turn 70 in August. Heavy steps betray a body that has borne too much weight...
In the vein of musicians-turned-actors, Jared Leto is a very familiar face in recent film history. Although he has always been the lead vocals, rhythm guitar, and songwriter for American band 30 Seconds to Mars, Leto will always be remembered as an accomplished actor for the numerous, challenging projects he has taken in his life.
Robots in Disguise is an electro-indie-rock-dance band from London. Dee Plume (guitar and vocals) and Sue Denim (bass and vocals) are its only two members, apart from a drummer named Ann Droid, and occasionally at gigs, a bassist (usually either Noel Fielding or Chris Corner). Part riot grrl princesses, part monsters of DIY musical mayhem, this extremely talented duo has a reputation for fashion-forward style and energetic shows...
Whether you adore him or despise him, there’s no disputing the fact that Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain – uncle of emo and man enough to marry Courtney Love – had a profound impact on a generation. Seattle’s “grunge” sound, and the ensuing “alternative rock” movement that took radio waves by storm in the 1990’s, all trace their roots back to Mr. Cobain and the single that kicked it all off, “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
Morcheeba incorporates, very successfully, influences from trip hop, rock, rhythm and blues and pop. The band is perhaps most famous for its releases and singles “Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day”, “The Sea” and “Otherwise”.
This rapper explains the reason behind choosing his stage name, saying that the dog “bites to lock. The dog is too stupid to lose. And they’re outlawed in Dade County. They’re basically everything that I am. It’s been a constant fight.” And he is the dog, he is Pitbull.
The sassy, bawdy, girl-kissin' pop star proves to be something special on her first headlining tour.
We remember the brilliant and evocative music Bob Marley gave the world; music that stretches back over nearly two decades and still remains timeless and universal. Marley has been called “the first Third World superstar,” “Rasta Prophet,” “visionary,” and” “revolutionary artist.” These accolades were not mere hyperbole. Marley was one of the most charismatic and challenging performers of our time.
Most of the bands often have very unusual name, we have tried to list the origins of some popular bands both past and present.
AC/DC – 1) It is said that one of the band member saw it on an appliance and thought it had something to do with power. (It does mean “alternating current / direct current”.) The band used it not realizing it was also slang for a bisexual - the band claims NOT to be bisexual.
With the release of their first album, All We Know Is Falling, Paramore established themselves as a competent bunch of teenagers with an ear for big rock riffing and pop punk melodrama. But it was the release of their second record, Riot!, that saw things really start to take off. Led by a clutch of singles destined to be the most over used ringtones of the past two years, Paramore were suddenly everywhere – headlining Warped Tours*, doing arenas and Jimmy Eat World tours and gathering a dangerously rabid fanbase comprised of tweens, teens and tough guys alike. Then along came a little old movie about...
