Skepta Wins The 2016 Mercury Prize


Skepta David Bowie Radiohead The 1975

Grime star Skepta has edged out competition from red hot favourite David Bowie to win the 2016 Mercury Prize for his album Konnichiwa in London.

The crowd at the Hammersmith Apollo erupted when Skepta’s name was announced as the eventual winner of the prestigious prize by Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker on Thursday night (September 16th).

The bookies had tipped David Bowie to win posthumously for his final album Blackstar, released just two days before his death in January this year, but the 33 year North London rapper was not very far behind in their estimations either.

David Bowie, Radiohead And Skepta Included On 2016 Mercury Music Prize Shortlist

Radiohead, Skepta, The 1975 and the late David Bowie are the big names to have been shortlisted for the 2016 Hyundai Mercury Music Prize, with Adele and previous winner James Blake the notable absences.

The 12-strong shortlist, picked by a panel of music critics, industry figures and artists, was announced on Thursday morning (August 4th) on BBC Radio 6 Music. David Bowie’s 25th and final album Blackstar, released just two days before his death in January this year, is already being touted as one of the favourites to win the overall prize when the winner is announced on September 15th.

Radiohead’s recent album A Moon Shaped Pool makes the Oxford five-piece the most nominated act in Mercury Prize history. Their albums OK Computer, Amnesiac, Hail To the Thief and In Rainbows all made shortlists in previous years, and this doesn’t even count lead singer Thom Yorke’s nomination for his 2006 solo album The Eraser. However, they have not yet won the award.

The 1975 Land First Ever Billboard Number One With 'I Like It When You Sleep...'


The 1975

The 1975 rock their way to the number one in the Billboard 200 Chart with their long-awaited second album 'I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It'. The album has also given them another number one in the UK, taking Adele's place.

The 1975The 1975 hit number one in both the UK and US

So the Manchester four-piece haven't made themselves the most likeable of bands; quite the opposite. They've been openly critical about their fellow musicians, not to mention openly criticized for their shameless arrogance, but it turns out they were right to be cocky if the release of 'I Like It When You Sleep...' is anything to go by.

Bushmills Live 2014 Featuring Tired Pony, The 1975 & Much More Review


The 1975 might have been billed as the main event at Bushmills Live 2014, but it was Tired Pony who stole the show at the intimate old whiskey distillery.

Bushmills Live 2014 Review

Fine drizzle swirled through the air as a select group of 700 competition winners funnelled their way through the entrance to the Bushmills Live festival.

But with free whiskey, free food and an enticing line-up ahead, the lucky few who had been granted admission to the exclusive festival showed no sign of letting the weather dampen their spirits.

Billboard And Twitter's New Real-Time Chart: The Good And Bad


The 1975

If you ever wanted your very own #1 hit on a Billboard chart, now is your chance -- you just have to get the hype train moving fast enough on Twitter. At the end of May, Billboard teamed up with Twitter to launch a real-time chart displaying the most popular and talked about songs on the social media site. The categories in it are simple enough: one is called the “Trending 140” and this shows the most discussed songs on Twitter in the past hour. As of this writing, Psy’s new single, ‘Hangover,’ is currently at number one. “Emerging artists” is the second category: it’s the most talked about songs for artists that have never had a top 50 track on Billboard’s Hot 100. As of this writing, ‘Bounce’ by a rapper named Riot is currently at number one.

PsyPsy is currently sitting atop the Billboard Trending chart

There’s no doubt that it’s an interesting concept, but you have to wonder if it’s something that’s got some lasting value to it. After the failure of Twitter’s first music campaign, aptly titled ‘#Music,’ Twitter seemed hellbent on creating something that involves them in the music world, and this chart seems to have nailed it. How does one get their song on Billboard/Twitter’s chart? You can just simply tweet about a song with “#nowplaying” or include an iTunes link. Those requirements work well as it’s a natural process people go through to promote music. However, as cool as the system seems, is it foolproof?

Harry Styles Is Victim Of James Corden Phone Prank - This Time He Was Ready


James Corden Harry Styles Michael McIntyre The 1975 Nick Grimshaw

Styles wasn't about to get shown up for his gullibility again. Harry Styles has become yet another victim-of-choice for a phone prankster after having made headlines with his embarrassingly gullible display at the hands of The 1975's Matt Healy and Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw. This time, Styles was chosen as the target for James Corden's hilarious Send-To-All prank on The Michael McIntyre Chat Show on Monday (14th April).

Harry Styles Was Poised For A Witty Retort When James Corden Prank Texted Him.

The send-to-all game involved James sending a cheeky text to everyone on his contacts list to see who responded. The 32 year-old entertainer wrote "Me and you, lapdancing. Are you in or out? Come on, let's do this." Having learned his lesson from last month's blunder, the One Direction singer wasn't taking any chances and instead replied "Great, but what is it with you and lapdancing? What happened the last time we did that wasn't pretty."

Arctic Monkeys Make History With Their Fifth Consecutive Number One


Arctic Monkeys Alex Turner Daft Punk The 1975 Goldfrapp The Strypes London Grammar

The Arctic Monkeys have done it again! Their fifth album to date has entered the chart at number one after a strong week of sales since last week's release, with AM racking up more than 157,000 in sold units in only a few days. What's more, the band have made history by being the first indie band to achieve the feat of earning five No. 1 albums back-to-back, making the feat all the more impressive.

Arctic Monkeys
The Arctics have assumed their place among rock royalty

AM, which was released via Domino Record on Monday, 9 September, is now the second most successful album of 2013 in terms of units sold in the first week. It sits behind only Daft Punk's Random Access Memories, which sold more than 165,000 copies during its first week of release in May, according to the Official Charts Company. The Sheffield band's fifth number one entry is also frontman Alex Turner's sixth number one entry, after his cinematic side project The Last Shadow Puppets topped the charts at the first time of asking with 2008's The Age of the Understatement.
