TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB / GAMESHOW

“Oi Smith! Why’s it taken you so long to review the new Two Door Cinema Club album?!” Something that’s no doubt been said non-stop by visitors to this site since the album, Gameshow was released this past Friday. Probably. Well, wonder no more…it’s taken me this long because a) I’ve been enjoying it too much and b) I’ve…

DEATH TO THE CLOWNS:THE MYSTERY OF THE WANKERS IN THE CLOWN OUTFITS

It’s unusual for Mojo20 to not stay in their lane and aim directly at the comings and goings, past and present of the world of music. However, it’s no secret that we don’t subscribe to mass social media crazes, the conformity to recent trends or the ongoing, slow and steady retardation of the nation. The…

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…

PETER DOHERTY / I DON’T LOVE ANYONE (BUT YOU’RE NOT JUST ANYONE)

I absolutely love The Libertines and this may put me within the minority but I actually prefer Peter Doherty’s solo work. If nothing else, my reason for this is the writing. Despite the years of drug and alcohol abuse, the man really understands the power of words and the English language managing to conjure up…

KINGS OF LEON / WALLS

New Kings of Leon songs are likes buses. You wait absolutely ages for one and several come along in quick succession. The first new single came in the form of Waste A Moment which we reviewed and you can read here. Then, second song; Around The World. Last night, the title track, Walls dropped on Zane Lowe’s radio show. It’s a phenomenal…

STRANGER SOUNDTRACK

I know I’m seriously late to the party and spare seats on the bandwagon are scarce but I’m finally here…I’ve watched Stranger Things and like everyone who demanded I watch; I love it! The writing, the acting, the visuals, everything. Unsurprisingly, the music made it for me. From tense instrumental build ups from composers Kyle…

JAWS / RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME

Dun dun. Dun dun. Dun dun dun dun dun dun…JAWS ARE BACK!! If you’ve followed our ramblings on this site since its humble beginnings back in 2012 then you’ll know that we’ve always been a fan of the Birmingham based band, Jaws. A band who incidentally started the same sort of time as we started…

HOLY HOLY / DARWINISM

Because of this website, we get sent a lot of new music. Some, from bands we’ve heard of but most from “unknown” bands. Now and then, you hear a track that sounds recogniseable as the band’s influences shine through without sounding like blatant plagiarism. When I first heard the new track, Darwinism from Australian band, Holy…

A MESSAGE TO THE MACCABEES….

On the 8th August 2016, The Maccabees announced out of the blue that they were splitting up. It was an amicable break up with no falling out or tension but it was a shock nonetheless. I for one am gutted. They announced their split with the following message with my response following…   A Message…
