New single is #1 in Germany - their first #1 since 1968!

Mit "Jumpin' Jack Flash" schafften es die Rolling Stones schon einmal an die Spitze der deutschen Single-Charts. Das war 1968. Jetzt, 52 Jahre später, sind die Briten zurück auf Platz eins, wie GfK Entertainment am Freitag mitteilte. Auftrieb erhalten habe "Living In A Ghost Town" von der Veröffentlichung neuer Vinyl- und CD-Versionen, Anfang Mai sei das Lied schon einmal auf dem 22. Platz gewesen, hieß es weiter.

Damit hätten die Rolling Stones zwei Rekorde erreicht: Sie seien die ältesten Künstler, die jemals die Single-Charts anführten, und zwischen den beiden Nummer-eins-Hits liege mit 52 Jahren auch die größte Zeitspanne, teilte GfK-Entertainment weiter mit.

There's a new one up now with Rat - he's chosen an eclectic mix of tracks (there's an Adverts one there too!).

Thanks for sharing. That's nice of him to include the Adverts!  8)

Well, if it hasn't happened in over eight years...

Is that a bit like with the new forum (announced by our dear Admin)?  ;D

Otherwise known as The Original Rude Boy, Neville Staple was founder and co-frontman of The Specials, Fun Boy Three and Special Beat.
“Sugary came up with the idea to write a song about the lockdown, which, at first, was a very fast-stomping ska track. We then realized that it was too fun and happy a tune for the theme. Most of us have been quite down about the whole virus thing, so we decided to take it on a more sweet but moody 2Tone reggae route, in a similar vein to ‘Ghost Town’, with some music we had worked on previously with Sledge (Steve Armstrong),” says Neville Staple.

The dynamic ska duo used the internet to send files back and forth among the band members – from home to home to home. Due to social distancing rules, the video for this song was recorded and filmed on band members’ regular home equipment.

It’s important to remember how quickly Young worked in the mid-Seventies, churning out songs at a much faster pace than his label could release them (and after the commercial failure of 1973’s live LP Time Fades Away and 1974’s brilliantly depressive On the Beach, Homegrown was a guaranteed seller they were desperate for). Young was evolving so rapidly that every few months became its own era. By the time he released Tonight’s the Night, he was already hunkered down in Malibu, reuniting with Crazy Horse and new guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro to create Zuma. Homegrown was a record that most musicians could have built a career on, but for Young, who was relentlessly looking forward, it was already in the rearview mirror.

'Seismic, torturous and gruelling': forgotten UK arts workers fall through support cracks

Freelance workers in the UK’s creative industries have spoken of the devastating psychological toll of being “forgotten” and “ignored” after falling through the cracks in government support schemes.

The shadow cultural industries minister, Tracy Brabin, said the past three months had been “absolutely seismic, torturous and mentally gruelling” for many freelancers, with little apparent appetite in government to support them.

Brabin, an actor for three decades before entering parliament, said many felt utterly despondent after months with no income. “There are thousands of people looking at the rest of the year and wondering whether they are going to have to remortgage the house, move back in with their parents, or not buy the home they had saved for. These are seismic changes in people’s lives,” she said.

Drummer Rat Scabies, who seems to always be involved with multiple projects, took time out from his busy schedule to discuss two of his latest releases: Sparkle, the debut album from The Sinclairs, a wild, stoner-esque, two-man instrumental ensemble, which came out in early-May on Cleopatra Records; and the next installment from Professor And The Madman, Séance, whose release date is not yet set. He also dives a bit into the early days of the first wave of English punk and his monumental tenure as drummer for The Damned.
