Alt-J Taken By Surprise By BRIT Nominations


Alt-J Jessie Ware Jake Bugg One Direction Emeli Sande Plan B Mumford And Sons Robbie Williams

Mercury Music Prize winners Alt-J have been given their first BRIT Award nods, after being nominated for three awards: Best British Group, Best British Album and British Breakthrough.. Still, despite earlier success the band have admitted that they were still taken by surprise with the announcement of their recognition.

Speaking to NME, keyboardist Gus Unger-Hamilton described the news as "incredible," but admitted that he and the rest of the band were taken by surprise by the announcement, saying: "thought this this wouldn't be for the likes of us."

Last year the group's debut album, An Awesome Wave, received wide-spread acclaim and was awarded the title of BBC Radio 6's Album of 2012 as well as the Mercury Award and with the BRITs constantly vying to remain relevant and 'cool' it looks like the group might also be in contention to take away at least one gong at February's awards show, regardless of what the modest group members may think of their chances.

Hillsborough Charity Single: Odds On For Number No.1?


Robbie Williams Shane MacGowan Sir Paul McCartney The Hollies John Bishop James Arthur Gareth Malone

The Justice Collective - featuring stars like Robbie Williams, Shane MacGowan and Paul McCartney – are amongst the favourites to get to number one in the UK this Christmas. Over the last few years. the Christmas Number One has been a little unpredictable, what with a recent campaign to get Rage Against The Machine’s ‘Killing In the Name Of’ to number one thus preventing the usual X Factor winner Number One for the years that had preceded it.

Everyone loves to support a good cause at Christmas and the Justice Collective’s cover of The Hollies’ ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother’ will raise money for to help the families of those killed in the Hillsborough disaster in 1989, with their legal fees. The single was launched at Liverpool’s HMV store, by the former footballer Kenny Dalglish and the comedian John Bishop. According to the Halifax Courier, the Justice Collective currently have best odds of 2/7 to get a Christmas number one, whereas James Arthur – this year’s X Factor winner – has odds of 5/1 in second place. Gareth Malone's Military Wives’ Choir are in third place at 20/1, which would make it their second Christmas number one in a row if they manage to land the top spot.

According to the Belfast Telegraph, there has been a call from the stars of the Justice Collective, as well as Kenny Dalglish, John Bishop and Liverpool Walton MP Steve Rotheram to waive the VAT on the sales of the single. “I wrote to the Chancellor George Osborne before X Factor and we haven't yet had a formal response from him. We tried to get hold of the Treasury yesterday and we are still hopeful that he will waive the VAT on our single. It's the right thing for the Government to do,” said the MP.

Christmas Number One: The Race Is On


James Arthur The X Factor Simon Cowell Sir Paul McCartney Melanie C Rage Against The Machine Matt Cardle Robbie Williams Gary Barlow

With only nine days left until the big day, the race is on to see who will be sitting atop the UK Singles Chart this christmas, with the charity Hillsborough single battling it out with X Factor winner James Arthur for the coveted Christmas No. 1.

Only a few years ago, it was pretty much a given that the festive number one spot would go to The X Factor or Pop Idol/Popstars winner, however the competition has gotten a little more heated in recent years for for a number of reasons, and unlike before there is an air of uncertainty as to who will walk away with this year's number one spot at Christmas.

Girls Aloud were the first to do it back in 2002, when 'Sound in the Underground' took the Yuletide top spot. Then, from Shayne Ward in 2005 to Alexandra Burke in 2008, Simon Cowell's creations had that top spot wrapped up like dad's songs on Christmas Eve. That all changed when a successful Facebook campaign saw Rage Against The Machine's 1991 debut single 'Killing In The Name' take the top spot away from that years' winner, and thus outrage erupted (even though all profits RATM made were donated to charity, as opposed to Simon Cowell's already bulging wallet). Even though Matt Cardle managed to come up trumps the next year with 'When We Collide,' 2011 again saw a change in the wind when the choir ensemble Military Wives with Gareth Malone took the Xmas top spot with their rendition of 'Wherever You Are.'

Robbie Williams Live 02 Gig Shows He's Still Got It


Robbie Williams Gary Barlow Alan Carr

For someone who spends more time holding out his microphone to the audience, ironically meaning the crowd do most of the leg work at his concerts, Robbie Williams can still attract the crowds. His latest show - at the 02 London - had gone down marvellously.

He was even given a Twitter boost by his pal and old band mate, Gary Barlow, who posted, "Have a great show tonight @robbiewilliams #O2london", and after the show, celebrity praise was ample, with comedian Alan Carr tweeting, "Just seen @robbiewilliams at the 02 - amazing - what a showman!! Now how can I get him on @chattyman hmmmmn!!!!" The Telegraph were perhaps the most doting, however, giving the show a 5 star review, writing, "The show was staged in the round and it felt fitting because we were seeing many sides of Williams - the self deprecating comedian making cracks about the Queen not recognising him, the Norman Wisdom impersonator and the great British pop icon."

"Tonight was triumphant," the review went onto say. "A reminder that Robbie Williams remains one of the national treasures of British pop. 'They said it was leaving me, the magic was leaving me' he had sung earlier on 'Be A Boy', adding 'I don't think so.' I don't think so either, Robbie." So it looks like Robbie's still got it!

Paul McCartney Joins Hillsborough Charity Single: Will It Get Xmas No.1?

The Hillsborough single, released to raise money for the families of Liverpool fans who lost their life during the tragic Hillsborough disaster in 1989, where 96 football fans lost their lives during a FA Cup semi-final match at the Sheffield stadium, has had it's full line-up released, featuring a fair share of star power.

The single, a cover of the 1969 Hollies track 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother,' will be released on December 17th and is already hotly tipped to take this year's Christmas Number One spot. The full line-up is to feature Liverpudlian Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams, Mick Jones, X Factor star Rebecca Ferguson, Spice Girl Mel C, Gerry Marsden, Paloma Faith, Squeeze's Glenn Tilbrook, Beady Eye's Chris Sharrock, Hollie Cook, Jon McClure, Eliza Doolittle, Beverley Knight, Liverpool FC legend Kenny Dalglish, Liverpool MP Steve Rotheram, Liverpool-born comic John Bishop and members of Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Lawson, the Farm, the Zutons, the Beautiful South and Cast.

Families of the victims have already been given a listen to the charity single, which will raise funds for the ongoing legal costs as the victim's families seek retribution from the Government and police, who had covered up the truth about the disaster until earlier this year. Margaret Aspinall, chair of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, commended McCartney for lending his name to the project and spoke of how her son, one of the 96, was listening to the song shortly before he passed on. She said, "I thought, maybe he's handing me this new version and saying 'listen to this'."

Can 'Candy' Take The Crown? Robbie Williams Headed For Number One


Robbie Williams Gary Barlow Rylan Clark Greg James Labrinth Fun

Robbie Williams last scored a number one single in 2004 but the former Take That star looks as though he’s heading for the top of the charts this weekend 'with his latest single ‘Candy,’ according to NME.com. It’s the first single to be taken from his forthcoming album Take The Crown and has sold 73,000 copies so far, since its release.

Sales will have been buoyed by his appearance on last week’s X Factor show, during which he joked with his Take That pal Gary Barlow about his support for the controversial contestant on the show, Rylan Clark. When he was asked by Radio One’s Greg James (who presents the station’s weekly official chart show) what he would do if he got the number one slot this Sunday (November 4, 2012), he replied that he would “stay in, look for UFOs, get fat and beardy again.” Robbie’s last number one single was ‘Radio,’ which coincided with the release of his Greatest Hits album in 2004. His ninth studio album, Take The Crown, will be released on November 5, 2012.

Last week, Labrinth and Emeli Sande’s duet ‘Our Version Of Events’ also hit the top spot, after they had performed live on X Factor, though they have slipped to third place, in the midweek charts analysis. The X Factor effect shouldn’t be underestimated. Fun have just leapt 29 places with ‘We Are Young’, after they also appeared on the TV talent contest in the UK.

Robbie Williams - Take The Crown Album Review


In 2005, just as Robbie Williams was really starting to get his arms fully elbow-deep in the sort of faecal-quality material that in the end was only really useful for building motorways in China, he hit upon a rare moment of poignancy with the ballad 'Advertising Space'. Co-written by himself and Steven Duffy, the song was released as a single from the otherwise dreadful Intensive Care and, with its lyrics about the tragic fall of a once mighty superstar, it suggested something almost akin to self-awareness. 

Robbie Williams - Take The Crown Album Review

Williams solo pop career had, after all, shown a certain amount of promise towards the end of the 1990s, only for the puff of potential to disappear as quickly as his skull had rammed itself snugly between his fleshy arse cheeks. With 'Advertising Space', he seemed to admit that it had all gone a bit tits up as far as the song stuff was concerned, and that change was necessary lest he end up washed out and faded like so many who'd gone before him.

However, following the utter disaster of Rudebox in 2006, the biggest change to the public persona of the now 38 year-old has been a loss of confidence. Say what you want about his output; live, on camera or in front of fans Williams never seemed anything less than infallible, a King before his subjects whose unshakeable self-belief meant that even his worst artistic directions could be tolerated by his devotees. Yet it took just a botched door on the X Factor in 2009 to make it abundantly clear that the artist who once used to antagonise Oasis when they were in their career pomp wasn't quite sure of even his own worth anymore; struggling to get through the door to the stage on that comeback on X Factor, he struggled to gather himself and delivered a performance that stuttered and shook with anxiety, something that's imbued itself within him since.

Celebrities Help Show We're All Proud At The Pride Of Britain Awards


Robbie Williams Alexandra Burke

While the news normally constantly bombards us with the ills of the world, the injustices and atrocities, abuses and deaths, breaches of freedom and crimes of war, The Pride of Britain is a rare and welcome evening of celebration of all that is good in the face of evil. 

Jack Carroll was awarded with the Teenager of Courage award. He uses comedy to break down barriers and challenge attitudes towards cerebral palsy, a disability that he suffers with. Another recipient of the Teenager of Courage award was Alice Pyne who is responsible for 40,000 people signing up to the bone marrow register. She said "It was an incredible night and I felt really lucky to hear all the amazing stories behind the awards." 

While this show truly shows us how blessed the UK is with courageous and admirable citizens, one question still lingers though; why is it still the celebrities who are revered on the red carpet? Why is it their opinion that is sought out regarding the events of the evening? ...Why are they there? Well, for each of the winners that spoke to the Mirror it's clear that the celebs simply have a greater access to direct lines of influence. Natalia Aggiano who gave one of her kidneys to a complete stranger said "Alexandra [Burke] gave me her email address and said that she's going to do whatever she can to raise awareness about donating kidneys to strangers." Plus, celebrities also have that uncanny ability to really make the day of these incredibly noble teens. Alice said "[Robbie Williams] was wearing one of my pink charity wristbands and I tweeted a picture of him in it. Then he invited me to one of his concerts. I'm really excited about it." Pierce Brosnan, Holly Willoughby, Jamie Rednapp and Jon Bon Jovi were all in attendance to celebrate the amazing young Brits.

Adele- Bittersweet Success In Funeral Charts


Adele Frank Sinatra Monty Python Robbie Williams Eva Cassidy

Adele's instant modern classic 'Someone Like You' immediately struck a chord for those mourning a relationship, so it's no real surprise that this solemn ballad has made it to number 22 in the Co-Operative Funeralcare's chart for funeral songs- a list of the most requested songs at funerals over the past 12 months.

Adele's appearance in the list continues a growing tradition of pop music overtaking the place of hymns at funerals, so found the survey of 250 of the 900 funeral homes run by the Co-Operative. In fact, Gigwise reports that “They found that pop music has replaced hymns in two-thirds of British funerals as hymns have fallen to 30% of funeral music requests.” For the past seven years Frank Sinatra's 'My Way' has topped the list, and is requested at 15% of all funerals. Plus more ironic songs such as Monty Python's 'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life' often makes an appearance.

The Top 10 pop songs requested at funerals in 2012 include Eva Cassidy's 'Over the Rainbow', Nat King Cole 'Unforgettable' and Robbie Williams' 'Angels' among others.

The popularity of Adele's song may be in the million records that it sold in 2011 and her heart wrenching rendition that she performed at the Brit Awards in the same year, where she was overwhelmed by tears by the end of her performance.

Robbie Williams Names Baby Girl ‘Teddy’?


Robbie Williams Ayda Field Take That

Robbie Williams baby girl has arrived safe and sound into the world, with attention on Wednesday turning to the Take That man and wife Ayda Field’s choice of name. Would it match Williams’ personality? Would the couple play it safe? Well, it’s a yes to both, kind of.


The 38-year-old singer took to his blog today to disclose that his baby girl would be named Theodora Rose Williams. Not the world’s most common name, though it’s certainly nothing to rival the more bizarre celebrity baby names of years gone by (Apple, anyone?) However, it seems that Robbie has given his first daughter a little nickname, telling fans that she will be “affectionately known as Teddy,” while adding, “Born 3.33pm on 18.9.12, 7Ibs 4OZ…Baby, Mummy and Daddy are all rockin.... Thank you for your best wishes XXXX.” Robbie had expressed concerns last week that he may miss the London birth of his child while touring other parts of the UK, though he did have a private jet on standby. Of course he did.


Williams and wife Ayda have already confirmed their daughter will grow up as a British citizen, despite the singer owning a home in Los Angeles and spending the majority of his time there over the past couple of years.


Baby Joy: Robbie Williams Gets His Own Angel


Robbie Williams Ayda Field Take That

Robbie Williams can now add Dad to long list of achievements, after his wife Ayda Field gave birth to a baby girl, reports The Sun.


A complicated birth saw Field, 33, go into labour eight days premature, but all is well, and she gave birth to a baby girl at London's private Portland Hospital. Her arrival comes just two days after Robbie finished a string of solo comeback gigs, during which he joked about rushing off-stage if Ayda gave birth, and before his gig in Dublin on September 14 he said: "We thought the baby was going to have to be induced today," but no such action was needed. A close friend of Robbie’s, Jonathan Wilkes tweeted: "Just had the best news!" The pair met in 2006, marrying four years later at Robbie’s home in Los Angeles and it was in March this year they announced that Ayda was expecting their first child.

The former Take That star has been forthcoming in the upcoming months to the birth of his first child. "Ayda's like a very slim girl with a basketball — from the back you can't tell she's pregnant. She has been like an athlete where being pregnant is concerned — she's been a machine," he said, probably trying to compliment his wife. Talking of his impending role of Dad, Williams was equally honest: "It's so alien and also I've lived a very selfish life for a very long time where I haven't had to do anything for myself,” he explained. "I still don't know how to do anything for myself and there's a little person who's going to appear within the week maybe and I'm crapping it because if I don't know how to look after me, how can I look after her?” Well you better figure it out soon, Robbie, because she’s arrived. Only joking: here at Contact Music, we wish the new family all the best.

De-Lovely Review


Good

"This is one of those avant-garde things, is it?" says a droll, dubious and dying Cole Porter (Kevin Kline) as he sits in an empty theater at the beginning of "De-Lovely," watching his life pass before his eyes on the stage, in a production conducted by an enigmatic, ironic, ethereal director named Gabe (Jonathan Pryce).

The answer to his question is a delighted "yes." This film is an imaginative, deconstructionist, celebratory musical biography woven together from elements of theater, meta-cinema, chamber drama and Porter's own MGM musicals with gratifying -- if deliberately glossy -- results.

Kline opens the picture as a frail but feisty old man (the age makeup is remarkable) who, as he watches his own story unfold, is alternatively tickled ("Oh, look, it's an opening number!"), critical ("He'd never wear that! Change it."), fondly reminiscent and pained by regret. And the actor also plays the younger Porter in the bulk of the picture, which has a merry, dreamlike quality to its stop-and-start interactions with the elderly Porter and his theatrical spirit guide.
