  • Congrès du PCC : la censure s’abat sur “Return to dust”, le carton surprise du cinéma chinois
    Le film chinois “Return to dust” a disparu des écrans et des plateformes Internet depuis le 27 septembre. Une censure inédite pour un film qui avait pourtant été validé une première fois, cet été, et qui a fait un carton au box-office. Mais cette peinture réaliste de la dure vie rurale en Chine semble être devenue film non-grata à l’approche du 20e congrès du Parti communiste chinois.

  • ‘Björk said it should sound like the Cantina band!’: the enduring influence of Star Wars’ bizarre jazz group

    It’s been cited as an inspiration by everyone from Coldplay to Animal Collective. Musicians discuss why one of Star Wars’ most iconic scenes became such a phenomenon

    Of all the gin joints in all the galaxy, Luke Skywalker walked into Mos Eisley Cantina. A wretched hive of villainy where your pint of blue milk might get spilled by some unfriendly bum-faced alien, the tavern is seared into the memory of nearly every sci-fi fan alive thanks to its appearance in 1977’s Star Wars: A New Hope.

    But what Mos Eisley lacked in charm it more than made up for in live entertainment, being the regular gig of Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes, perhaps better known simply as the Cantina band – the lobster-looking musicians whose bizarre interstellar take on Dixieland jazz, perhaps unwisely termed “jizz”, is currently enjoying a return to the zeitgeist as an influence on Björk’s new album, Fossora.

  • Chicago: ‘It’s tough to get us to not show up on stage’

    In a new documentary The Last Band on Stage, the band talk about touring for 55 years and how Covid affected their plans

    A silent auditorium with row upon row of empty seats. Microphones standing lone and slender with singers. Drums sitting forlornly undrummed. Casinos without beeps or clangs. Outside, the main strip in Las Vegas – typically restless and seething with life – is deserted.

    In a film about musicians and music, it’s this moment of quietness that conveys the enormity of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020. The last band on stage in Las Vegas, or perhaps anywhere, was the rock’n’roll group Chicago, abruptly silenced after half a century in which they never stopped touring and never stopped recording.

  • ‘My teenage hormones were raging!’: stars salute the Beatles’ Love Me Do at 60

    It confused Gene Simmons, inspired Judy Collins and changed one pop star’s mum’s haircut. Here, musicians recall the impact of the Beatles’ debut single

    I was three years and two months old when Love Me Do came out, but I had a plastic toy guitar and whenever the song came on the radio I would stand on a stool and sing along. I don’t know why that song more than any other would leap out at me, but it was the first song I ever sang. It might have been the harmonica intro – the only other song I remember with a harmonica break back then was Frank Ifield’s I’ll Remember You – but Love Me Do was head and shoulders above Freddie and the Dreamers or Gerry and the Pacemakers or any of those bands with similar accents. Lennon and McCartney’s voices weren’t swathed in reverb like records were then, and their sense of melody was phenomenal. In terms of what they did later, Love Me Do is the bit that gets jettisoned once the rocket is in orbit, but it was vital to the whole process. It still makes me smile when I hear it and I take enormous pride in thinking that it was the launchpad for me.

  • History takes a modern turn at Warszauer Hotel [Cracow]

    Words Marta Knas

    New York has Soho, Berlin has Mitte. Cracow has Kazimierz. Created in the 14th century, the Jewish district used to be an independent city – a melting pot where different religions could reconcile. What once was just a small Polish town is now a cultural hub of Cracow with multiple monuments marked as World Heritage Sites.
