Brighton Magazine Clubs and Music Articles

During the past half-decade, The Selecter, led by their legendary frontwoman Pauline Black, have become increasingly aware that their championing of 2-tone/ska music is firmly rooted outside of today's mainstream genres (indeed, Ska doesn't even exist as a music category on iTunes). 
The Prodigy's new album, The Day is My Enemy, takes you on a journey through the uncharted underbelly of urban nightlife where anger is an ever-present energy lurking just beneath the surface of an edgy calm.
Off the back of last summer’s major festival stages, as well as playing guests to Arctic Monkeys at two huge shows in London's Finsbury Park and at Dublin's Marlay Park, Brighton band Royal Blood's reputation is building internationally, as they set off to prove to the world that rock is definitely not dead.
Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon is the new album from English national treasures The Wave Pictures,  It was co-written and produced by one of their all time heroes Billy Childish.
After playing a total hit storm when they appeared in Glastonbury's much coveted 'special guest' slot, last summer, Kaiser Chiefs are about to do the same when they visit Brighton, early next year.
Elvis Costello had fallen out of love with his home country after a bad experience at Glastonbury back in 2005. The memory was recounted by Elvis as one of the worst forty-five minutes of his professional life: 
Tick, tock the hour is near. It's the 9th December 1982 and there's a gig ticket on top of The Jam's pile of vinyl that lay neatly piled on the Dansette. Not just any old gig ticket, but one so I can say a fond farewell at the Brighton Centre to the band that had defined the last six years of my life.
Former Brighton resident and Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes is gearing up to release his second solo album, Matador.
Brighton-based veteran Folk-Rockers the Levellers have teamed up multi-BBC Folk Award winners Bellowhead, to record a new version of their cautionary tale of all things alcoholic, Just The One.
SoundCity, Brighton & Hove's Music Education Hub, has won national acclaim for its work inspiring children and young people into music.
The Decemberists have been away. Having delivered their 17-part prog-rock opus, The Hazards Of Love, the band's front man Colin Meloy turned tack with the last release The King Is Dead: "I felt like we had definitely gone as far into the conceptual realm as we could go with songwriting."
After twenty years in Everything But The Girl, and ten years as a respected DJ and record label boss of Buzzin' Fly, Ben Watt announced last year he was parking everything to complete two long-planned creative solo projects. 
Following the recent release of her third album 'A Perfect Contradiction'Paloma Faith is set to visit the Brighton Centre next month.
Imagine your mind has been wiped: memories, knowledge, experiences, language - every word you ever spoke, has vanished. If eventually you found the words, what would you say?
