A Day With The Levellers

By Steve Jenner on 21 May 2009

On Monday I had the privilege of spending the day (and evening) with one of my favourite bands of all-time, The Levellers, in their hometown of Brighton. Half of you reading this have just winced in disgust, I know, the Levellers being the marmite of... read more

Has the bubble finally burst on the major festivals?

By Steve Jenner on 24 March 2009

How the media love to jump on a cultural fad, build it into the tallest tower they can and then send it tumbling back down to the earth with a sensational crash. They did it with us dot coms at the end of the last century ( thanks ), they do it wit... read more
