TAME IMPALA / LONERISM

I know it might be a little bit self indulgent but hey, one of the greatest things about music is that it’s subjective for all of us, and so why not share your opinion, right? That’s what our Throwback Thursday feature is all about…

HIM / VENUS DOOM

It’s Thursday and that gives us that weekly option to #Throwback and take a look at an album from the past, tear it apart and delve back into it, reviewing it, years after its release, taking the opportunity to do what we didn’t at…

THE RAMONES / MONDO BIZARRO

It may not be Thursday, in fact it’s a stormy Friday night here in the UK, so a #ThrowbackThursday feature doesn’t really have any context here, but upon the realisation of this punk rock anniversary, some rules had to be bent as I felt…

MAXIMO PARK / OUR EARTHLY PLEASURES

Spring is here and it’s always a hectic and crazy time. This year even more so for a multitude of reasons and Mojo20 are running at 100mph… but I’ve been waiting for the start of April so I can use our Throwback Thursday feature…

MODEST MOUSE / WE WERE DEAD BEFORE THE SHIP EVEN SANK

Well what do you know, it’s Thursday again and that means it’s time for another look back into the past and see what was coming out this time years ago. This one is an album I’ve been looking forward to looking back at and…

PRINCE / SIGN O’ THE TIMES

An interesting and poignant Throwback Thursday this week as it’s almost a whole thirty years since Prince released ‘Sign O’ The Times’. His ninth studio album, and one of his more iconic, was released at the end of March 1987, and for what would have…

THE HORRORS / STRANGE HOUSE

It’s March 2017, and that may mean a few things. It means that this year is disappearing way too fast. It certainly means we’re heading into spring, which is great news for us here in the UK. It also means that it’s a whole…

FLEETWOOD MAC / RUMOURS

Can you believe that it’s a full forty years since one of the most loved and respected records of all time was released, as it was February 1977 that the world first heard Fleetwood Mac’s masterpiece ‘Rumours‘ was released. Now I could go on…

REEL BIG FISH & ZOLOF THE ROCK & ROLL DESTROYER / DUET ALL NIGHT LONG

You’ll all know, or at least remember Reel Big Fish as one of the biggest names of the last decade’s Ska-punk movement, mostly famous for hits like ‘Sell Out’ and ‘Beer’ amongst tons of others. You may not know of Zolof the Rock &…

BLUR / BLUR

Tomorrow marks the twenty year anniversary of Blurs self titled album…’Blur‘, and what a twenty years it’s been, as the band have gone from releasing ‘Song 2‘, which I argue is one of the greatest and most recognisable guitar tracks of the modern era…

LANA DEL REY / BORN TO DIE

Man how time flies. It’s been a whole five years to the week since Lana Del Rey released her debut album, the wonderful haunting ‘Born to die’. We all know Lana Del Rey now, since this album made her a household name in the…

KLAXONS / MYTHS OF THE NEAR FUTURE

Looking back, loads of great albums were released this time ten years ago. If you caught our Jamie T retrospective last week, you’ll have seen how we nostalgically championed his debut album (click here if you missed it!), the time around which it was…
