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…

THE BLOODHOUND GANG / ONE FIERCE BEER COASTER

It might seem a rather odd choice for a retrospective review and although ‘One Fierce Beer Coaster’ by Pennsylvania’s The Bloodhound Gang was released twenty years ago this month, a lot of people may respond with “so what?”. Well, this very special throwback Thursday style retro review has two main agendas to it and here…

KINGS OF LEON / AHA SHAKE HEARTBREAK

So, I really have to start this off with a disclaimer for the majority of you…. WARNING: THE CONTENTS OF THIS ARTICLE MAY CAUSE EXCESSIVE NOSTALGIA & FEELINGS OF BEING REALLY, REALLY OLD. 2016 has been a fairly average year for new music, but amongst the mediocrity there have been some truly amazing releases and…

THROWBACK THURSDAY / 1966

There are more than a lot of reasons why 1966 was an important year in history. It was fifty years ago this year since England won the World Cup, Carnaby Street in London became the fashion capital of the world and the space race was hotting up between Russia and the USA. But what I’ll…

THROWBACK THURSDAY / 2006

Remember two years ago where we took a look at albums we loved in 2004 on their 10th anniversary? We had every intention to do it last year as well but…failed. Click here to be transported back to 2014 though. Well, we’ve pulled our metaphorical fingers out and with a fresh new Mojo20 team (more…

THE MACCABEES / WALL OF ARMS

May 4th will be known to many as the unofficial “Star Wars Day” with its play on the quote “May the force be with you”. To me however, it marks the anniversary of one of my favourite albums to ever be released, Wall Of Arms by my favourite band, The Maccabees. Released May 4th 2009,…
