Cheeky British journos have likened Boy Kill Boy's sound to the Smiths splitting disco biscuits with Hard-Fi, and they're pretty much right. This is a retro band with allegiances to the '80s so rock-solid you half suspect that on their off hours, members Chris Peck (lead vocals, guitar), Kevin Chase (bass), Pete Carr (key-boards), and Shaz (drums) sit around the computer swapping e-mails with the guys from Depeche Mode. The Psychedelic Furs, with whom they have toured, make for a snug sonic fit. But as debut disc Civilian proves, the U.K. quartet's time has come, deja vu spells or no: opener "Back Again" dishes up a gorgeous dollop of gloom courtesy of Peck's pretty vocals against racing guitars and a brink-of-chaos vibe; "On and On" continues the onslaught of desperation with almost Duran Duran-like mock seriousness and punk guitar; and third track "Suzie" is plain old infectious, brilliant British pop, the kind that, should the folks at Fuse or MTV get a hold of it, could single-handedly spawn a new generation of music-television junkies (ditto for "On My Own"). For all its sleeve-worn '80s influences, there's a touch of angsty, My Chemical Romance-type post-punk to Civilian that delivers it smack-dab in the middle of 2006. Tracks like "Six Minutes" are better off for it, and so is the band overall. Boy Kill Boy, based on the lingering head-buzz this debut so unsparingly brings on, is headed for the big time.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit, even forty-five years after its release.

Led Zeppelin: 50 Years of Rock

In 2018, Led Zeppelin celebrated their 50th birthday, but the only "present" on offer is a beautiful book which will come out on sale in Autumn. After having made their mark on the history of rock in just 12 years, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones have often reunited on stage and in the studio after the death of drummer John Bonham in 1980, with varying degrees of success. Let's take a look back at Led Zep's different comebacks, which we hope might throw up some nice ideas for a really good birthday concert...
