  • Tonight : Perfume Genius On CBS' "The Late Show With David Letterman"

    October 30th, 2014 at 2:54 pm by Gerard
    Perfume Genius' U.S. network television debut happens tonight on CBS' "The Late Show With David Letterman" (11:35 pm eastern, 10:35pm central). Dave's other guest tonight is NBC news anchor Brian Williams, and if you think a guy in that position being funny is a little incongruous, you're never heard David Brinkley's unreleased Laff Records LP.  That aside, we're pretty sure this is going to be one of those TV moments you'll feel like a real dope for missing (and not simply the part where Brian Williams tries to kick Dave in the headt).

  • John Peel - remembered

    October 25th, 2014 at 8:16 am by Stuart Davie
    Today marks 10 years since the passing of John Peel, a man who opened the BBC radio airwaves for bands and artists outside the remit of the stations "regular" programming and opened the minds of thousands listening at home to sounds they otherwise may have never heard. One of the original BBC Radio 1 DJs, throughout his 5-decade spanning career he never showed no signs of slowing down and his influence on (the good part) of modern music is immeasurable.
    As a small tribute to the many Matador bands who recorded a Peel Session over the years, we've compiled a selection of some of the sess… Read more
