POST – Paradise Circus (Fallen Sun version)22nd March 2023 · 2020s, 2023, Music
The feature-length Luther film is far from brilliant, replacing characterisation and intrigue with action and a dollop of torture porn. But the music makes up for it.
Dorothy Moskowitz & The United States Of Alchemy – Under An Endless Sky21st March 2023 · 2020s, 2023, Music

On a sunny day in 1976 I joined 150,000 other people in Knebworth Park to see The Rolling Stones. The line-up that day included Todd Rundgren’s Utopia, 10CC, Hot Tuna and, immediately before the headliners, Lynyrd Skynyrd.
