HIM / VENUS DOOM

It’s Thursday and that gives us that weekly option to #Throwback and take a look at an album from the past, tear it apart and delve back into it, reviewing it, years after its release, taking the opportunity to do what we didn’t at the time. This weeks retrospective release is a personal favourite and…

THE RAMONES / MONDO BIZARRO

It may not be Thursday, in fact it’s a stormy Friday night here in the UK, so a #ThrowbackThursday feature doesn’t really have any context here, but upon the realisation of this punk rock anniversary, some rules had to be bent as I felt compelled to speak about this album a little bit. Today marked…

MAXIMO PARK / OUR EARTHLY PLEASURES

Spring is here and it’s always a hectic and crazy time. This year even more so for a multitude of reasons and Mojo20 are running at 100mph… but I’ve been waiting for the start of April so I can use our Throwback Thursday feature to look back at some of my favourite albums of all…

MODEST MOUSE / WE WERE DEAD BEFORE THE SHIP EVEN SANK

Well what do you know, it’s Thursday again and that means it’s time for another look back into the past and see what was coming out this time years ago. This one is an album I’ve been looking forward to looking back at and for great reason. Washington based indie rockers, Modest Mouse released ‘We…

PRINCE / SIGN O’ THE TIMES

An interesting and poignant Throwback Thursday this week as it’s almost a whole thirty years since Prince released ‘Sign O’ The Times’. His ninth studio album, and one of his more iconic, was released at the end of March 1987, and for what would have been the thirtieth anniversary of the release of this incredible pop…

THE HORRORS / STRANGE HOUSE

It’s March 2017, and that may mean a few things. It means that this year is disappearing way too fast. It certainly means we’re heading into spring, which is great news for us here in the UK. It also means that it’s a whole ten years this week since garage indie legends; The Horrors released…

FLEETWOOD MAC / RUMOURS

Can you believe that it’s a full forty years since one of the most loved and respected records of all time was released, as it was February 1977 that the world first heard Fleetwood Mac’s masterpiece ‘Rumours‘ was released. Now I could go on forever here, repeating and carrying in with all the stories and…

REEL BIG FISH & ZOLOF THE ROCK & ROLL DESTROYER / DUET ALL NIGHT LONG

You’ll all know, or at least remember Reel Big Fish as one of the biggest names of the last decade’s Ska-punk movement, mostly famous for hits like ‘Sell Out’ and ‘Beer’ amongst tons of others. You may not know of Zolof the Rock & Roll Destroyer, but the Philadelphia synth-rock outfit joined forces with RBF…

BLUR / BLUR

Tomorrow marks the twenty year anniversary of Blurs self titled album…’Blur‘, and what a twenty years it’s been, as the band have gone from releasing ‘Song 2‘, which I argue is one of the greatest and most recognisable guitar tracks of the modern era (IMO), to bass guitarist Alex James creating his own artisan cheese…

LANA DEL REY / BORN TO DIE

Man how time flies. It’s been a whole five years to the week since Lana Del Rey released her debut album, the wonderful haunting ‘Born to die’. We all know Lana Del Rey now, since this album made her a household name in the contemporary music world, and we all know her morose, down beat…

KLAXONS / MYTHS OF THE NEAR FUTURE

Looking back, loads of great albums were released this time ten years ago. If you caught our Jamie T retrospective last week, you’ll have seen how we nostalgically championed his debut album (click here if you missed it!), the time around which it was released and the entire build to his incredible beginning. Only one…

JAMIE T / PANIC PREVENTION

Ten years ago this month one of my favourite albums of the 2000’s was released and although Jamie T has remained a big name in British rock ‘n’ roll ever since his 2007 debut, I don’t know if he ever created another record with the self depth, creativeness and innovation of ‘Panic Prevention’. Featuring twelve…
