Our resident photographer Ruby Gaunt was at O2 Academy Brixton on 14 October, where she captured Irish band Picture This…in pictures.

You would think the headline you just read would be a joke, but I promise there is nothing funny about it. On Sunday, Madison Square Garden held its first full-capacity showing 15 months. All attendees needed to show proof of vaccination for the event, which was met with anti-vax protests that failed to turn off the lights.
Foo Fighters’ lead singer Dave Grohl, who is celebrating 26 years with the band (they pushed back their 25th-anniversary celebration one year), said, “We’ve been waiting for this day for over a year. And Madison Square Garden is going to feel that HARD. New York, get ready for a long a** night of screaming our heads off together to 26 years of Foos.”
The highlight of the show was easily when the band brought comedian Dave Chapelle out on stage to help them perform a cover of Radiohead’s classic track “Creep.” The band previously shared the stage with Chapelle on Saturday Night Live.
Shockingly, this isn’t the first time Chapelle has covered the song, it’s actually one of his go-to’s! Watch the performance below and let us know what you think of the cover!
All three are deeply inciteful songs, as Hank explains,
“The singles are more or less about relationships. Even though the lyrics focus on specific situations, they can reference any number of events I’ve experienced throughout my life. That’s part of the beauty of songwriting as far as I’m concerned. You can write a song describing one particular set of circumstances, but oftentimes they find connections to similar emotions and events that transpire later on. Eventually, over time, the songs find a common thread.”
‘Why Go’, a stirring track, sets its focus on an argument between two fictional people, who are nonetheless committed to the relationship. Hank!’s vocals are raw and slightly discordant in a pleasing way – think a cross between Morrissey and Bob Dylan; intellectual music. The instrumentals further enhance the Morrissey vibe, jangly guitars and energetic drums.
Speaking of ‘Why Go’, Hank! says,
“At the time, I tended to dismiss it as pure fiction, because I really didn’t know what I was talking about,” he muses. “It was pure fiction. Now, however, I’m finding some meaning that I had not necessarily intended to unearth before. I’m particularly keen on the off-kilter drum fills.”
Hank!’s music takes a few listens to really appreciate the deeper components, but it’s nonetheless appealing even just the first time through. The tapering off at the end of ‘Why Go’ was a surprising and very pleasant adjunct to the rest of the track – the ear follows along as if following a car as it drives into the distance.
Coldplay won’t keep making music forever, and if you believe what they told NME in a recent interview, that finale could be coming sooner rather than later:
“We’re going to make 12 albums. Because it’s a lot to pour everything into making them. I love it and it’s amazing, but it’s very intense too. I feel like because I know that challenge is finite, making this music doesn’t feel difficult, it feels like, ‘This is what we’re supposed to be doing’.”
Fear not Coldplay faithful! Those words don’t mean the band will be breaking up. Lead singer Chris Martin is referring specifically to studio albums, leaving the door open for more touring, collaborations, and producing.
In the same interview, Martin revealed that Coldplay has been trying and failing to write a Bond theme song for the past 20 years.
