Music review: Angel Haze, Birthday’s, London

Angel Haze has the back story: having grown up in a religious community that she has compared to “a cult”, in which she wasn’t allowed to listen to music, she moved to Brooklyn at age 16 and, in this musical melting pot, lapped up what she heard. Across a handful of mixtapes and an EP, she has shown off her no-nonsense rapping, displaying a flow that’s reminiscent of Jay-z at points in its clever, clunky syntax.

Born to keep running? Bruce Springsteen working on a new album

Bruce Springsteen has dropped some serious hints that he is working on a new album - which would be his 18th studio record to date-  saying that he still has “a lot of material” to share.

Jane's Addiction, Koko, London

Jane's Addiction are both a product and a victim of their time. Formed in the same city (Los Angeles) in the same year (1985) as Guns N' Roses, they ascended to their pinnacle in 1990, even then overshadowed by the heavy metal titans next door, only to then split up for the first of what would be two times in 1991. Their history is fractured and staccato, one of acrimony and reformation, but the warm embrace afforded the band by tonight's crowd at Koko speaks volumes about the impact that their first two albums had on a generation of young rockers.
