It’s hard to imagine that a club night like Trash would be able to exist in 2017. That’s not to say that young people aren’t still looking for a place to share the same music and subvert culture. But what with club closures and the sharp rise in living costs, a venue that could afford to take risks on a Monday night and a young clientele that could afford to go there every week seems an...

Between the legions of scoop-necked DJ bores and the sub-Sheeran mopers it’s easy to get disheartened about the lack of personality in modern British pop. But at least we have Wiley. Even within grime’s playpen of extroverts, he is a wildcard, a high priest of obstreperousness who seemingly lives to upset applecarts – playing games with persona and reality, rampaging through the music...

Flo Morrissey and Matthew E White are enough to make you sick. They radiate pleasure in each other’s company and are both very much in the ascendant after recording an album of covers so good you don’t want to go back to the originals. To make matters worse, there’s a YouTube video about the making of the album that gives the impression it was more like a Netflix series about hip kids having...

"You go out on stage each night as if, one, it’s the most important thing in your life you can do, two, it’s only rock’n’roll. You’ve got to be able to keep those conflicting points of view in your mind at the same time without letting either of them drive you crazy, or taking either of them at 100% face value. That’s sort of how you live with it. But it is something you asked for. You can’t...

You don’t need to know that Brave for You addresses Madley-Croft’s late parents to feel its emotional weight, nor do you need to be up to speed on Sim’s issues with alcohol to empathise with A Violent Noise’s weary, troubled attitude to hedonism. Sometimes, the effect is not unlike that of an ancient disco track like Odyssey’s Native New Yorker or Jackie Moore’s How’s Your Love Life Baby? –...

A$AP Rockay had "just got a new set of gold teeth, braces things, and he was talking about taking acid,” says Coyne. “In between, Miley was whispering: ‘He’s never really taken acid. He’s just saying that because he wants to write music about taking acid.’ He would keep talking and she would go: ‘He doesn’t know anything about acid.’ She’d know. Cyrus has done acid plenty.”

She sings about chicken shops and “caffs not a cafe” on the streets of Lewisham, teenage pregnancies and benefits. Her rasping soul voice has been compared to that of Lauryn Hill – and she shares Hill’s fondness for reminiscing about youthful golden days. But you can also hear the likes of Amy Winehouse in BLK’s music – the London slang, the cheeky wit, the ability to nab US soul influences...

There’s a sweet moment during Look at What the Light Did Now where, before Morrissey’s vocal comes in, White – by some distance the better-known of the pair – introduces her by her first name, to an overdubbed round of applause. It’s presumably intended as a tongue-in-cheek joke, and perhaps a nod to the opening of Sgt Pepper. But by the time the album has finished, the applause seems less...

Early in his career, he was much taken by a photo of David Cassidy in his pomp, in which the 70s star was standing on the roof of London Weekend Television, looking hundreds of feet down at knots of frantic fans. That was Michael’s idea of perfect fame: the lifestyle was fine, as long as it was kept at a distance. It wasn’t glamorous; it was what the suburban kid Georgios Panayiotou would have...

Michael had clearly been laying the groundwork for a solo career that was very distinct from Wham! The transition from teen pop star to adult artist is one of the trickiest moves to pull off successfully. He made it look bizarrely painless: Michael seemed to know exactly what he wanted and how to get it.

George Michael was so talented, the template to his success was unique

So when they wore their hearts so obviously on their sleeves, how were Wham! ever seen as Thatcherite? Their second album was called Make It Big, and the imperative title alone seemed to cement an “if you can’t beat them, join them” embrace of excess and empire building. Another way of reading the title, though, as Wham! Make It Big, gives it quite a different meaning. They had done, after all...

The bar down the block from me uses George Michael’s Careless Whisper as a sign that it’s time for everyone to start gathering up their things – its saxophone blast is a hell of a way to snap the variously inebriated to attention.
