Weekly Watch

Jazz weekend is upon us again. It’s that one weekend in the year when every langer on leeside suddenly remembers he “fucking loves the jazz, tis daycint, like!” So for those looking to click their approval, there’s plenty on offer. Brand New Heavies are bringing their brand of jazz, soul and R&B to the Savoy Theatre on Saturday. Herbie Hancock Band play alongside Jason Moran and the Bandwagon in the Everyman Palace Theatre also on Saturday.  The Savoy hosts Maceo Parker Band on Sunday. If like me however you’re looking for a little something different then check out Jazzsteppa playing in Cyprus Avenue on Saturday.

Video: Biffy Clyro – Booooom Blast and Ruin

The rot continues. The latest video from the Scottish boys confirms the good old days are gone. Gone are the hard-hitting, unpredictable, original tunes that decorated Infinity Land, Vertigo of Bliss and Blackened Sky. This latest video, for yet another forgettable pop song, serves as a reminder that these lads are superstars now, it’s a celebration of tattoos, sell out gigs, main stage festival slots. We’re all very impressed Biffy, why bother crafting a masterpiece like Now the Action is on Fire, when this shit will make you rich and famous?
