GLASTONBURY 2017 FROM THE SOFA

So the biggest weekend on the music calendar has been and gone for another year as Glastonbury festival 2017 drew to a close tonight. Fans of Mojo20 may have read our review piece from 2016 and in keeping with consistency, we’re back to give you our thoughts (from the sofa) on 2017. This means two things of course, firstly… we weren’t there again and secondly that there is a lot to talk about and multiple amazing performances that need addressing, and here we go

THE KLF RETURN?

The rumour mill has been working overtime for the past couple of days and talks that one of the most outspoken and diverse bands of the late eighties and early nineties may just be reforming in 2017. In a time of somewhat political turmoil and dispute, a band that always served as an alternative commentary…

MOJO20’S FAVOURITE / CLEAN BANDIT

We spoke the other day about how the dreadful Honey G was kept from the UK Christmas number spot, as was the winner of the 2016 X Factor, Matt Terry (think that was his name, not looking it up). Instead the number one spot belonged to Cambridge three-piece, Clean Bandit, as part of a seven…

BBC SOUND OF 2017

It’s been an annual tradition for years now, you return back to work from the Christmas break and the January blues are well and truly set in, all until you realise that by the end of your first week back in the real world; the BBC Sound Of winner will be announced. A joyous occasion…

RECORDS BREAKING RECORDS – THE 25 YEAR HIGH FOR VINYL

What wonderful news it is to have seen that physical purchases of vinyl records have shot up to the highest point in a quarter of a decade. Vinyl has been on the up and up for quite a while now, becoming fashionable and sought after again, years after technology attempted to eliminate it entirely and…

BACK TO MONO / 7TH JANUARY / RED FIVE,LINCOLN

Happy New Year everyone! We hope you enjoyed it just as much as we did. We know this year is going to be filled with many more surprises and we hope to see you all there again with us. We’re kicking off the new year in style with our first club night of 2017 on…

WHEN YOU SAY HONEY…WE SAY NO THANKS

In a year that will always be marred by tragic and untimely loss in the music world, 2016 will always be remembered as the year that took so much more than it gave. We saw icons like Prince, David Bowie, George Michael and Leonard Cohen all pass away, long before they should have, but leaving…

MOJO20’S SONGS OF 2016

2016 will forever be remembered as a year of incredible political change and of tragic celebrity deaths, including the passing of many an iconic and legendary artist. Despite this, we recently posted our favourite albums of the year (check these out here) and within that post we mentioned that it hasn’t been the best year…

NELLY FURTADO / PIPE DREAMS

  The first point to take note of in this writing is that, Nelly Furtado is back and set to release her next LP in 2017. Surely that’s worth celebrating immediately, before even having heard this track. Furtado has always had the knack, like few others, to consistently hangs and evolve, remaining fresh and bringing…

MOJO20’S ALBUMS OF 2016

In a year perhaps shadowed by the loss of musical icons David Bowie and Prince, 2016 wasn’t exactly crammed full of brilliant albums. For starters, there was a new Robbie Williams album out. Did this really need to happen in 2016?! This being said, we’ve metaphorically picked through the shit and come up with some…

INDIE CHRISTMAS AT THE TAP & SPILE / CHRISTMAS EVE

Christmas is fast approaching and like most years, one of the most exciting aspects is getting together with friends and family to drink, dance, laugh and all other things festive. This year, Mojo20 have taken the reigns and are making all of this as easy as possible along with our good friends at the Tap…

TRANSMISSION / SATURDAY 17TH DECEMBER

Thank you to everyone that made the last Transmission, in November, a memorable one and a lot of fun…. and we’re doing it again in December. Transmission has always stood for being the alternative frequency to your Saturday night, bringing you the music you want, over the music the radio and commercial clubs expect you…
