50 years later, Apple+ offers a fresh look at ‘1971: The Year That Music Changed Everything’

Think about the year 1971 and some things come immediately to mind: the war in Vietnam. the presidency of Richard M. Nixon and, well, after that, the answers can begin to splinter off into a hundred different directions. Danielle Peck, one of the producers and directors of the docuseries “1971: The Year That Music Changed Everything” knows that the date in the title isn’t an obvious marker in popular music’s journey through the 20th century. But Peck, director-producer Asif Kapadia, and the rest...

Nick Kent: 'I was in the right place at the right time, on the wrong drugs'

The rock critic who revived British music writing at the NME in the 70s is back with his first novel – a caustic tale of rock megalomania Nick Kent, who is as close as British music journalism ever came to producing a legend, finally stopped writing about rock in 2007. “There was really nothing around that sparked my imagination,” he tells me. “There was no mystery, and rock’n’roll needs mystery.”So ended a singular odyssey that had begun 35 years earlier, in 1972, when Kent joined a then strugg...

I Hear The Drumming: Kent State And Pop Music, 50 Years Later

The recognition and commemoration of the Kent State massacre, which happened 50 years ago today, has shifted so drastically that it's weird to think it was initially considered the harbinger of a second Civil War. Between 1970 and now, the shooting's role in American history has shifted from a defense of patriotic Silent Majority values … More »

The Pretenders – “The Buzz”

In stressful times, there's something hugely reassuring about seeing the old new-wave heroes of the '80s coming back with really good songs. Last week, for instance, the reunited Psychedelic Furs came out with the absolute banger "You'll Be Mine." And today, Chrissie Hynde's Pretenders -- who aren't reunited because they never broke up … More »

Mohawks, Highlights, & '90s Hair: Inside Brie Larson's Captain Marvel Makeover

Real fans know that there have been several iterations of Captain Marvel, but Carol Danvers — the version Brie Larson plays in the big-screen adaptation hitting theaters this weekend — has transformed perhaps the most since her DNA was altered and she became a human-Kree hybrid in 1977. Though the character's journey to the top has been questionable at best, Larson is quickly making the unsung hero of the Marvel universe the most powerful Avenger, ever.But becoming Captain Marvel didn't just re...

Night Flowers – “2000 Miles” (Pretenders Cover)

The Pretenders' 1983 single "2000 Miles" is one of the all-time great new-wave Christmas songs, and it gets even better once you realize the depth of feeling that Chrissie Hynde put into it.

Chrissie Hynde: ‘It's hard work being alone. Paintings are an outlet'

The Pretenders frontwoman has been defying musical expectations for 40 years. Here she talks about feminism, censorship and the power of putting brush to canvasThe art studio of the latest rock star to trade in the plectrum for the paintbrush is not in the most starry of locations. It’s in her flat above a row of shops opposite a council estate in an ungentrified corner of north-west London. Her artist’s view is usually a gaggle of buses dawdling at their stops; on the afternoon I visit, a homel...

How Joan Jett Started the Runaways at 15 and Faced Down Every Barrier for Women in Rock and Roll

These are dark days for everyone who cares about equality. After decades of painful progress and some hard-won victories for women in the U.S., the guardians of patriarchy seem hellbent on undoing modernity and setting the clock back decades to keep power. The misogynistic spectacle is nauseating. One remedy, Rebecca Traister recommends in her new book of the same name, is to get “good and mad.” The voices of women resisting the current wave of political attacks can guide righteous outra...

Let’s Revisit Billboard’s First-Ever Modern Rock Tracks Chart Published 30 Years Ago Today

Thirty years ago today, Billboard launched the "Modern Rock Tracks" chart, which currently exists under the Alternative Songs nomenclature.

On Its 25th Anniversary, Hear Liz Phair’s Groundbreaking Exile in Guyville Juxtaposed Song-By-Song With the Album That Inspired It, the Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street

Images via Wikimedia Commons. Liz Phair left, Mick Jagger right In 1971, post-Altamont fiasco, the Rolling Stones went into exile... not on some dusty small town drag, but on the French Riviera, where the band decamped for purposes of tax evasion and began recording in Keith Richards’ rented villa near Nice. Everyone knows what happened next—a sloppy, soupy, ragged, glorious hash of country, blues, and country-blues, filtered through a haze of booze and heroin and the Stones’ devotion to rock a...

The Popdose Interview: Simple Minds’ Jim Kerr

Don’t look now, but with their sixteenth and seventeenth albums, Simple Minds is on a tear. Their 2014 album Big Music earned the band some of their best reviews in decades, and their upcoming album Walk Between Worlds (which will be released February 2) finds the band still exploring new ideas, not content to do what is expected of them. Simple Minds lead singer Jim Kerr was in France, and yet still volunteered to give 30 minutes of his life to talk to Popdose about the new album, and playing m...

'The Clash on the Clash' Is a Smorgasbord of Contradictions

In September 1983, completely against character, Clash founder and guitarist Mick Jones showed up for rehearsal on time, only to be sacked by Joe Strummer, with a nod of assent from Paul Simonon. The drama and hilarity that preceded this end-of-an-era incident is well-documented: see Pat Gilbert's Passion Is a Fashion (2004), Chris Salewicz's Redemption Song: The Ballad of Joe Strummer (2006), the exhaustive work of Marcus Gray, two dozen titles by Clash-de-...

Talk of plagiarism and theft consistently permeate the music industry. In this instance, we look at the possibility of Led Zeppelin having 'stolen' their classic song Stairway to Heaven and, even if they did, of whether or not this was a case of conscious theft or merely accidental. __________________________ In this latest article from MusicThinkTank, Andrea Cifani delves into the possibility that Led Zeppelin, accidentally or not, may have stolen some portion of Stairway to Heaven. ...
