Retrospective: Sex Pistols Indecency Trial, Nottingham, 24 November 1977

Never mind Black Friday – here’s the Sex Pistols Indecency Trial! When I did some investigative work earlier this year and discovered that that 24 November 1977 was a very special date in Nottingham’s music history, I knew we had to celebrate it here on the Rockhaq Community. A special shout out to Nottingham Libraries for having this brilliant archive material to hand. And it’s all free, dammit.

Ghosts, zombies, murder, blood, death and many other unpalatable things have inspired some killer (fnar!) tunes over the decades. Who are we to hide this weird stuff from you?

Retrospective: Radiohead’s OK Computer in 1997

This week 20 years ago, Radiohead released their eagerly awaited third album, OK Computer. It was June 1997, the UK was still in the throes of Britpop with Oasis and Blur leading the charge. Yes, people were expecting a lot from Radiohead. Their second album, The Bends, was quietly released to an almost zero fan base in 1995. Yet with each single release, its impact slowly grew to show the world that they still deserved to be here.

Dads the world over have inspired or written many a rock and pop song about their kids. But instead of the usual cheesy Top 10 Father’s Day songs you’ll find on other websites, most of our anthems tell dark, mournful or grim tales of betrayal. Most, that is – not all. We have a few gems in here. Why not check out what made our Top 10 Father’s Day Songs list and see for yourselves?
