HAPPY WORLD GOTH DAY, EVERYBODY

It seems to be an overwhelming trend at the minute to give everything its own special day. Gone are the days when we were happy with Independence day, St.George’s day, Record store day, Pancake day and all those classics, but now you can find just about…

ED SHEERAN / CASTLE ON THE HILL & SHAPE OF YOU

You’d have to have been under a rock this week to miss the build up to this new Ed Sheeran track with tiny snippets of the song being teased on tv and radio. Now, before we begin; let me tell you that I really…

THE TWANG / ON THE 24TH

So, this time of the year; we find that there’s not much coming out in terms of new music as we’re forcefed the usual Christmas “anthems” on the radio, in the streets and everywhere we turn. It just gets a bit too much sometimes….

MOJO20’S ALBUMS OF 2016

In a year perhaps shadowed by the loss of musical icons David Bowie and Prince, 2016 wasn’t exactly crammed full of brilliant albums. For starters, there was a new Robbie Williams album out. Did this really need to happen in 2016?! This being said,…

RYAN ADAMS / DO YOU STILL LOVE ME?

One of my favourite artists of all time is Ryan Adams. Often having to say “No. R-Y-A-N, not Bryan” when discussing him or recommending him to friends, it’s nice that I’m part of a relatively niche fanbase. Despite some of his songs appearing in…

THE MACCABEES FAREWELL TOUR

So, on my commute to work this morning; I tuned in to BBC Radio 6 to hear a special announcement regarding The Maccabees. I was correct in my assumption that it was the announcement of their farewell shows following their split earlier this year….

TRAINSPOTTING 2 / OFFICIAL TRAILER

It’s finally here!! The full trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to one of the best films ever. The idea of Trainspotting 2 has been around for ages with each mention creating more hype about the possibility of it finally happening. It feels like…

MOJO20’S FAVOURITE / LIKE A VERSION

DMA’S cover of Cher’s Believe has recently gone viral of sorts, creating a new sound buzz around the Australian band. It’s a phenomenal cover and the way I discovered the band. We’ll have an interview with the band here on http://www.mojo20.com soon but until then, check…

KASABIAN / FREDDY’S COMING FOR YOU

I absolutely love horror films. One of my favourites being the original Nightmare on Elm St. The film never scared me, even as I watched it as a kid. I know, I know; I’m a maverick. The part that always stuck with me after…

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

So, I recently reviewed Gameshow, the third album from Irish Indie rockers Two Door Cinema Club (Click here to read that if you missed it). I wanted to review it on the day of its release but  mentioned that I’d been quite busy recently getting my first…

TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB / GAMESHOW

“Oi Smith! Why’s it taken you so long to review the new Two Door Cinema Club album?!” Something that’s no doubt been said non-stop by visitors to this site since the album, Gameshow was released this past Friday. Probably. Well, wonder no more…it’s taken me this long…

DEATH TO THE CLOWNS:THE MYSTERY OF THE WANKERS IN THE CLOWN OUTFITS

It’s unusual for Mojo20 to not stay in their lane and aim directly at the comings and goings, past and present of the world of music. However, it’s no secret that we don’t subscribe to mass social media crazes, the conformity to recent trends…
