One-Hit Wonder Weekend!

Simon Archer is at it again…Dusting off his music library and pulling out songs, performed by artists that hit the music charts and never cranked out another popular hit again.

The Sky Is Falling!

No ordinary tribute band will do though, as there are already plenty of those. No, this one shall be hand-picked, and put through a rigorous online competition to prove all ... Read More »


“SuperHeavy”. You may not have heard of the band, but you’ve heard of all its members! The brainchild of Dave Stewart, of Eurythmics fame, the project was kept secret until very recently. Joss Stone, Mick Jagger, Damian Marley, and A.R. Rahman, alongside Stewart, sat down at Jim Henson Studios earlier this year and managed to cut 29 tracks. We won’t ... Read More »
