Oasis' Definitely Maybe 20 years on...



Oasis' Definitely Maybe 20 years on...

Like everything else, Noel Gallagher had an opinion about debut albums. “Definitely Maybe was the young, eager, wanting to get out there and fucking blow the world away album,” he told Uncut in 2000. As Gallagher claimed on many occasions, he’d been strategising a debut album, in whatever form, since his teenage years. With such apparent forethought, it’s no wonder that when Definitely Maybe appeared in August, 1994 it redrew the parameters of indie rock, filling a void left by The Stone Roses and gave Alan McGee’s Creation Records a world-class act.

The 19th Uncut Playlist Of 2014



The 19th Uncut Playlist Of 2014

A new office this week, although a good few crates remain. These, though, are the tunes that’ve sensitively assisted our transition. Special props to Bob Carpenter’s rediscovered album from ’74, very much kin to “No Other”; to the Mauritanian desert rock of Noura Mint Seymali; to the reissue of an old Imaginary Softwoods ambient set from John Elliott, ex of Emeralds; and to the enduring usefulness of Pye Corner Audio and Girma Yifrashewa.

"An incredible assortment of freaks": The making of Dennis Hopper's The Last Movie

Dennis Hopper would have been 78 tomorrow (May 17). That seemed like a good reason to dust down this piece I wrote on the making of The Last Movie, Hopper's legendarily unhinged follow-up to Easy Rider.

Bob Dylan's new album: let the wild speculation begin!



Bob Dylan's new album: let the wild speculation begin!

Yesterday was bookended by a pair of unexpected releases. In the morning, Morrissey unveiled his first new studio material in almost five years, then just as we were packing up for the day, a new track appeared without fanfare on Bob Dylan’s website. Admittedly, we had been expecting some new music from Morrissey; Dylan, however, caught us entirely by surprise, and not for the first time...

Track Premiere: Hiss Golden Messenger's "Brother, Do You Know The Road?"



Track Premiere: Hiss Golden Messenger's "Brother, Do You Know The Road?"

Sometimes great songs fall by the wayside, for whatever reason, and over the past year or so it’s felt that Hiss Golden Messenger’s “Brother, Do You Know the Road?” might unfortunately be one of those.
