Glasgows Arches saved after council throws out police closure order
Apr 1, 2015 6:55am | Fact Magazine

The Glasgow club lives to fight another day.

Glasgow’s Arches has been given a stay of execution after Police Scotland made an attempt to have the venue’s license revoked yesterday.

According to Herald Scotland, Glasgow licensing chiefs ruled the police’s use of an emergency closure order unlawful, as there was no violent disorder involved in its complaint against the venue. The venue’s lawyers also managed to successfully argue that the police had attempted to use legislation usually applied when they had intelligence of disorder at pubs frequented by football casuals to try and have the venue’s license revoked, which didn’t apply in this case.

Police Scotland originally took action against the Arches after a woman was found unconscious in the Glasgow venue at the weekend. The club was shut early on Saturday and an emergency closure order served, by the police, who recorded a total of 26 drug and alcohol-related incidents on the night.

However, the Arches’ lawyer Robert Skinner said that most of the 15 reported drug offences on the night were the result of searches by door stewards, and the 11 alcohol offences came from police searches conducted in the street after revellers had been moved out of the venue by the force. Police Scotland claimed the levels of drunkenness meant ...

Mini Mansions - The Great Pretenders
Apr 1, 2015 6:44am | Drowned In Sound

Featuring a Queen of the Stone Age on bass; having Alex Turner and Brian Wilson guesting on their new album; supporting Royal Blood on tour; these are all things could raise expectations too high for any band. A lesser band would buckle under the strain. Not Mini Mansions. All of these headline-grabbing elements pale in to insignificance next the sheer weight of downright brilliant songs which abound on The Great Pretenders.

DiS recently ran a fine feature article on Mini Mansions. If youve yet to take the time to read it, Id strongly suggest you do so now before continuing with this review. Itd be great if you came back afterwards though. Just in case you dont, its a great album and you owe it to yourself to buy it.




Right, youre back I see. Ill continue.

One of the biggest compliments I could pay this fine album is that it took me a long time to notice when Brian Wilson started singing on Any Emotions. This is no slight on Mr Wilson. Far from it. Rather, by the time he adds his pure tones to the track, Mini Mansions already had me under their spell. Opener Freakout! builds to a glorious stomp of a chorus, a squelching bass pulse driving the track along underneath ricocheting piano, and the kind of vocal inflexions not seen in these parts since Mika (its better than that though). This is the sound of a band enjoying themselves. It is wondrous. And it only gets better from there.

Death Is a Girl has so man...


YouTubes musical April Fool might be the best of all
Apr 1, 2015 6:42am | Fact Magazine

It’s April 1, and as you’d expect we’ve already seen plenty of April Fool’s jokes in the music world (as well as the odd usually-savvy magazine falling for ‘em – naming no names).

YouTube might have the best April Fool of all though – whatever song you want to listen to, they’ll have a suggested alternative that’s harder, faster and Daruder.

Try it and see, but not after you’ve finished listening to Mask of the North Star.

MF DOOM and Flying Lotus team up for joint album Mask of the North Star
Apr 1, 2015 3:15am | Fact Magazine

So we’re still waiting on that DOOM and Ghostface album (not to mention Madvillain 2), but this should more than tide us over: DOOM and Flying Lotus have announced a joint album.

Titled Mask of the North Star, the record will arrive on May 5 through Lex, DOOM’s regular home (and a once-offshoot of Warp, where Flying Lotus’s solo albums dwell).

Judging from the cover, it’s as inspired by comic books and cartoons as you’d expect a DOOM/FlyLo collab to be, while the guest appearances won’t surprise fans of either act too much: Madlib’s Quasimoto alias crops on on the nattily-titled ‘Memories of Green’, El-P and Thom Yorke appear on ‘Police State’, and Thundercat plays a key role in the record, as he did on FlyLo’s You’re Dead! One big coup though: Carlos Santana, who collaborated with FlyLo’s aunt Alice Coltrane on 1974 album Illuminations, contributes guitar to ‘Myztik Meg’.

DOOM and Flying Lotus will both perform in London on May 1, the week before the record drops.

Tracklist:
01. Mask of the North Star (ft. Thundercat)
02. Stink Noze
03. Thermite and Ice
04. Memories of Green (ft. Quasimoto)
05. Orion’s Belt (ft. Thundercat)
06. Singularity (ft. Jneiro Jarel)
07. Exiled

Kendrick Lamar wanted to call his album Tu Pimp A Caterpillar in honour of Tupac
Apr 1, 2015 3:00am | Fact Magazine

Kendrick Lamar has revealed the original title for To Pimp A Butterfly.

In an interview with MTV, the Compton rapper said he had planned to call his number one album “Tu Pimp A Caterpillar” as a tribute to Tupac (Tu-P-A-C), who of course features on the album’s final track in a staged interview/philosophy session with Lamar.

“Me changing it to ‘Butterfly’, I just really wanted to show the brightness of life and the word “pimp” has so much aggression, and that represents several things,” the rapper explained. “For me, it represents using my celebrity for good. Another reason is, not being pimped by the industry through my celebrity.”

Watch the interview below and listen to the complete Tupac interview featured on the record. FACT’s Chris Kelly discusses TPAB’s bid for the black power pantheon in his essay on the album.
