Arts and Entertainment Glory days: US singer Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen has scored his tenth UK number one album with High Hopes, beating the likes of David Bowie and Michael Jackson.

Album review: Daughn Gibson, Me Moan (Sub Pop)

Though Daughn Gibson’s second album has many qualities (tumbleweed atmospherics, understated exotica, country-soul song structures which recall Lambchop and Serge Gainsbourg), chief among them is the voice of the 6ft 5in former trucker itself.

Funeral music: Ring-ding ding ding, Ted Heath is dead?

Tomorrow, the music played at Margaret Thatcher’s funeral will be Elgar’s “Nimrod” and “I Vow To Thee My Country”. Given this week’s chart, er, ding-dong it was always unlikely that a tune from the Top 10 would soundtrack proceedings (Maggie never took to Duke Dumont). But what other inappropriate chart offerings have there been in the week of a former PM’s death?
