I arrived early in work to write this month’s editor’s letter, always the very last thing we have to do. As I prevaricated, I casually checked Twitter on my phone. The devil’s window swung open invitingly and, soon, I was involved in an intense argument with Irvine Welsh and several strangers. It got heavy, quickly. Persons unknown trading under obscure nicknames were replying to me in emoji. Someone said they would report me for hate speech, and I spent some time trying to untangle why. Eventually, I withdrew. I was furious. After all, I was right. Everyone on social media is right. And certain about that. I’m no different. I checked the time: I had lost over an hour on this nonsense. I felt sad. And then, I thought of The…

biffy clyro to headline special q awards show

Biffy Clyro will play a special Q Awards show in London in October. The Scottish rockers have been laying low this year, only breaking cover for sporadic festival appearances. But they will take a break from the studio for a one-off gig at the Roundhouse, Camden, on Tuesday, 15 October, the day before the Q Awards. Pre-sale to Q subscribers, Roundhouse members and Biffy Clyro mailing list recipients starts at 9am on Wednesday, 31 July. General sale begins at 9am on 2 August (see page 11 for ticket info). “It’s gonna be messy!” Simon Neil “We’re delighted to be playing one of Q’s legendary Awards shows,” says frontman Simon Neil. The three-piece’s memories of the Camden venue are long and varied. They played many of their early shows just up the road…

Hi, John. Where are you right now? I’m on my veranda. I was just in my living room, listening to records and painting. What, painting and decorating? No, I’m painting for an art show I’m doing. The new Oh Sees album, Face Stabber, is your 22nd. Are you a workaholic or is everybody else just lazy? I’m not going to call anybody else lazy, but I like to work a lot. The writing and recording process is really fun and I’ve got a good crew of people around me right now. Everybody lets me be bossy. Are you a good boss? I’m a bit of a taskmaster, but I get the best out of everybody. And everybody gets paid the same as me, so they don’t have a lot of room to complain. If they can’t handle…

working men’s club

In a great bit of nominative determinism, Manchester-based quartet Working Men’s Club are currently huddled outside an actual working men’s club, enjoying a cigarette and merrily ploughing through a crate of free booze. They’re all smiles now, but 45 minutes ago their set at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds came to a clattering, feedback-squealing close with singer Syd Minsky-Sargeant in the middle of the crowd, squaring up to an unsuspecting audience member as if he was about to offer them outside for a kicking. “I’m waiting to get punched, it hasn’t happened yet.” Syd Minsky-Sargeant “I’m not doing it to intimidate people but when someone confronts you and catches you off guard you get involved. The person has to step back and think,” reflects Minsky-Sargeant. “You want to shock people. They’ve…

ROSS FROM FRIENDS EPIPHANY The title track from RFF’s (aka Felix Clary Weatherall) new EP continues in the same cosmic house vein as 2018’s Family Portrait LP. With its ravey sci-fi synths, Epiphany evokes the dancefloor euphoria of early-’90s techno. Out:16 August, on Brainfeeder. LIAM GALLAGHER ONCE The latest from Liam Gallagher’s second album sees him in full solo Lennon mode – echoed vocals, piano and a fantastically inventive way of pronouncing the word “school”. Noel may be exploring new avenues, but this is vintage Liam. Out: now, on Warners. THE CHATS IDENTITY THEFT Queensland’s The Chats have released several brilliantly numbskull punk bangers. Their latest is a riotous thrash about trying to buy drugs online only to have your identity stolen by hackers. Out: now, on Bargain Bin. RÓISÍN MURPHY INCAPABLE Róisín Murphy put out some of the most deliriously enjoyable tracks of…
