pop reviews; Belly Astoria, London

"Danger: don't dance on the tables" warn iridescent signs on the balcony, and tonight everyone upstairs wishes they were downstairs. From the moment that Rhode Island pop-rockers Belly saunter on stage, the Astoria becomes a giant funfair: lights flash, helium balloons float ceilingwards, moshers take ride after ride on a sea of hands and the auditorium is one sweaty, bouncy castle. Belly give as good as they get. "Hello, all you cute little wankers," yells bassist Gayle Edwards by way of introduction, and we roar our greetings back.

Jools Holland's had a bit of a rough time lately. A monstrously green-eyed hack berated him for being a successful mediocrity, a British stereotype in the vein of Eddie the Eagle. Well, that's hardly fair. Jools is no Art Tatum, but as far as that boogie-woogie stuff goes, he's played with the best.

Wild Love

Wild Love

Growing up in a purple haze; Flower power may have wilted, but the movement's grown-up children are taking over the music business.

There was a time when almost all pop musicians had the same childhood. It went: working-class roots; disruptive at school; start smoking at 13; hear Elvis / Jerry Lee Lewis / Chuck Berry on the radio; form raucous R&B combo with friends in an effort to rebel against stifling establishment. In biographies of 1960s pop stars, the first 40 pages usually write themselves.
