Noel Fielding Simon Amstell Mark Lamarr

The BBC has cancelled long running music panel show ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ after over 18 years on air and 28 series. The show had long been a staple of BBC Two’s autumn schedule, but had suffered from falling ratings in recent years.

Never Mind the Buzzcocks'Buzzcocks' team captains Phill Jupitus and Noel Fielding with series 27 guest hosts Rizzle Kicks.

Last summer, in time for Buzzcocks' 28th series, comedian Rhod Gilbert was named as the show's first permanent host in five years. But the addition of Gilbert was unable to improve ratings, which had been steadily declining for some time.

Noel Fielding - London Hammersmith Eventim Apollo November 18th 2014 Live Review


In 'The Mighty Boosh', Noel Fielding took us on a journey through time and space. In 'Luxury Comedy' he invited us to visit Painted Hawaii. But in 'An Evening With Noel Fielding' the comedian took the audience on their greatest adventure yet, through the many twists and turns of his vast imagination.

An Evening With Noel Fielding - Live Review

The evening began as ordinarily as possible for Fielding. He was quick to point out that he's now aged 41 (though he could probably still pass for under 30) and so finds himself walking like Prince Charles with his hands behind his back. But of course, that's where the similarities end. 

At 41, Fielding is still as enchanting as ever and holds the same childlike charm which first made him a star in 'The Mighty Boosh'. One joke saw him vividly describe the life of a teabag, complete with 'Dante's Inferno' references, while in another he was simply a 'chicken man' who squawked around the stage amusing himself just as much as everybody else.

Writing in The NME, Fielding notes that The Young Ones was “the first post-punk comedy, and a complete changing of the guard. The Young Ones was a huge influence on The Mighty Boosh, for both Julian [Barratt] and myself."

Noel FieldingHave 'An Evening With Noel Fielding' later this year

After the ‘Mighty Boosh’ wrapped up their ‘Future Sailors’ tour in 2009 the pair decided to take a little time off from their famous double act. After all, they’d been doing it for over 10 years at that point. Noel, however stayed on TV and filled Bill Bailey’s vacant seat as a permanent team captain on BBC 2’s ‘Nevermind the Buzzcocks’. He also appeared in films such as ‘Come on Eileen’ and ‘Horrid Henry the Movie’. Then in November 2011 he went back to his other main passion besides comedy, art, and released his book ‘The Scribblings of a Madcap Shambleton’ featuring his own unique art work of portraits, characters and even some stories to go along with them. The book’s promotion saw Fielding travel to Manchester, Glasgow and London demonstrating his painting skills on the windows of Waterstones, Urban Outfitters and in London’s Golden Square.

Beck Summons An Army To Help Him Turn 'Song Reader' Into Music


Beck Franz Ferdinand Jarvis Cocker The Mighty Boosh John Cooper Clarke Beth Orton Charlotte Gainsbourg Guillemots Noel Fielding Julian Barratt

Depending on the way you look at it, Beck's decision to release his last album in the form of sheet music was either incredibly innovative or unforgivably pretentious. Released in December 2012, Song Reader comprised of twenty songs in sheet music form as well as over one hundred pages of art. The idea behind the unusual decision was to let the fan become the composer, with many interpretations quickly surfacing online showing the versatility of the pieces.

This was all very well if you're a Beck fan with some degree of musical talent but for those hungering for the white rap of Odelay, the pop experimentation of Midnite Vultures or the sweet melancholy of Sea Change were left feeling a little bemused and perhaps even cheated.

Old Friends Join The Rolling Stones For 50th Birthday Concert


Rolling Stones Mick Jagger Keith Richards Ronnie Wood Charlie Watts Bill Wyman Mick Taylor Mary J Blige Noel Fielding

Last night at London’s O2 Arena (November 25, 2012), The Rolling Stones were joined onstage by old friends and newer ones, as they celebrated their 50th anniversary. The current mainstays of the band, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts welcomed the band’s original bass player, Bill Wyman to play ‘It’s Only Rock and Roll (But I Like It)’ and ‘Honky Tonk Women.’ Mick Taylor, who was a member of the band between 1969 ad 1974 also had his moment in the limelight once more, when he joined them for a version of ‘Midnight Rambler.’

Mary J Blige also performed with the band, helping them out with ‘Gimme Shelter’ and later tweeted “So much fun performing in London w/ the ‪@RollingStones! Congrats on your 50th anniversary!! The response to the show, from those that were there, has been overwhelmingly positive. The Mighty Boosh comedian Noel Fielding told the BBC “I think Keith played incredibly. Sympathy For The Devil...his lead on that was absolutely amazing” and – always one to admire an elaborate costume - added “Mick came out in a cape which - as always - has got to be a bonus.”

In the lead up to the opening night of these 50th anniversary dates, much of the discussion surrounding The Stones’ concerts has been centered on the extortionate ticket prices. Jagger didn’t ignore it, joking to those at the back “How are you doing up in the cheap seats? Except they're not cheap seats, that's the problem.” Hopefully, everyone was having such a wonderful time that they were able to see the funny side.
