Album review: Bill Callahan, Dream River (Drag City)

Callahan’s fifth album under his own name in the eight years since the Smog lifted, sounds precisely as you might expect it to: drily humorous but essentially dark lyrics, delivered in that trademark detached baritone, while instruments from flutes to violins flitter fittingly (never a note out of place) in the background.

Seatwave name new boss as ticket site turns a profit

Ticket resale website Seatwave today named the former chairman of Shazam as its new boss, as the company revealed it was in profit for the first time thanks to sell-out concerts like the Rolling Stones.

Slim Whitman brought country music to the ears of pop record buyers

Slim Whitman

With no criticism of Spencer Leigh's well detailed Slim Whitman obituary (20 June), one item overlooked was the accomplishment that the singer didn't receive – a place in Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame, writes Tony Byworth.

Two Gentlemen of Verona at the Tobacco Factory, Bristol

Theatre review: Two Gentlemen of Verona, Tobacco Factory Theatre, Bristol

What if there were no magic potion in A Midsummer Night’s Dream? What if your best friend fell for your girl and no enchanted flower could lift the spell? That is the premise of Shakespeare’s rarely performed comedy Two Gentlemen of Verona. And this is the play that director Andrew Hilton and Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory have chosen to stage in rep with their recent Richard III.

Cedric Bixler-Zavala of At The Drive-In performs on stage at Splendour In The Grass

Caught in the net: Second time around for At the Drive-In

At the start of the last decade Texan post-hardcore band At the Drive-In (pictured) made some of the most exhilarating raucous rock music around. Some 13 years later their album Relationship of Command is getting bells and whistles re-release treatment. To mark the occasion there is a remix of seminal single “One Armed Scissor” by Swedish electronic musician The Field. The remix is out in May as a 12-inch but it's already streaming at youtu.be/iopzilfHj9M. Admittedly it's a strain to find much trace of the original (if you can hear it at all) but it's a fascinating beats-and-pulses-filled, nine-minute whirr of electronica nonetheless.

Bring Modern: Christmas jumpers

Red and green should never be seen. That's the rule, folks. That's the rule. Don't blame me, I didn't make it up. Them's the fashion fundamentals. Only, someone should probably have a word with the people who make Chrimbo sweaters, cos they're not listening. It's red (mainly) and green everywhere, because they are Jesus's favourite colours. Not really; we've got swathes of red because of Coca-Cola and the great Santa swindle, and we've a dash of green here and there because it's nice to have a reminder of a snog under the mistletoe.

IoD album review: Georgie Fame, Lost in a Lover’s Dream (Three line whip)

Six decades into his remarkably consistent career, Fame has made one of his best albums: a bare-bones trio recorded in Slovenia with guitarist Primoz Grasic and bassist Mario Mavrin.

Eric Taplin: Pioneering historian of dock labour

No social historian of 19th-century Britain and no expert of labour history in port cities will fail to have read Eric Taplin's pathbreaking 1986 work The Docker's Union: a study of the National Union of Dock Labourers 1889-1922. It shifted the focus of British labour history from artisan elites and factory workers to the casual labour forces and labour markets that dominated Britain's major cities after the industrial revolution. Such workers had until then failed to find their historian.
