Being an iconic band is all about chemistry. Be they the Beatles, Small Faces, the Who, the Jam or the Stranglers. It's the mix of the individuals that makes the perfect whole.

Two acclaimed albums and an upcoming U.S. tour — Joy Division had the world at their feet. Then, on the eve of that tour and the beginning of what would surely have been an international success story, the band's troubled lead singer, Ian Curtis, killed himself.

Bobby Gillespie didn't think he'd make it to thirty, yet here he is at the age of fifty-four on the cusp of releasing new single Feeling Like A Demon Again, and paying a visit to Brighton to support Primal Scream's critically acclaimed new album, Chaosmosis.

The writer, musician and entrepreneur, Chris Wade, first came to our attention when he penned an insightful and in-depth account of one time Stranglers' frontman Hugh Cornwell's 2008 solo album, Hoover Dam.

American experimental rock band Swans, led by Michael Gira, formed in 1982 and, after disbanding in 1997, returned with three critically acclaimed albums, beginning with My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky (2010).
