Album: Lucas Santtana, The God Who Devastates Also Cures (Mais um Discos)

Simon Calder: American songs define every era

Born in the USA? Neither was I. But, like the average Brit, I feel Bruce Springsteen is part of a shared heritage – and, even though I was brought up in Sussex, I sense an affinity with blue-collar New Jersey.

The Sapphires, BFI London Film Festival

The Sapphires, an odd sort of cross between Dreamgirls and Good Morning Vietnam, is not really a very original film, but then, where musical dramas are concerned that never seems to matter much at the box office.

Lady Gaga and Prince to sing for the Great Gatsby?

He's the writer who anatomised the 1920s Jazz age; she's the jazziest pop star of the 21st century - and bringing the unlikely couple of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Lady Gaga together is, apparently, Baz Luhrmann's new film The Great Gatsby, if reports today are more than Hollywood whispers.

Larry Keenan: Photographer who captured Dylan, Ginsberg and the Sixties counter-culture

In December 1965, as Bob Dylan's controversial tour, carrying his newly amplified sound across the US, arrived in Northern California, the singer reacquainted himself with his Beat poet friend Allen Ginsberg, then staying on the West Coast. When the two showed a public display of loyalty outside City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco, a 22-year-old photographer captured this intriguing meeting of the folk hero and the literary muse. Larry Keenan was the young cameraman whose shots provided a historic record of that Dylan-Ginsberg summit. When the two were joined by others, including the poets Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Michael McClure and David Meltzer and the author Richard Brautigan, not to mention the guitarist Robbie Robertson, this rendezvous was soon referred to as the Last Gathering of the Beats, that group of radical writers who had challenged American convention head-on in the 1950s.
