Arctic Monkeys’ Matt Helders looks back on ‘AM’, says he has a “weird” rock version of ‘Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?’

Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders has revealed that he has a “weird” version of ‘Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?’ that has never been released.In a new interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music, the musician was reflecting on the band’s 2013 album AM, as part of the channel’s series 100 Best Albums.“There is a weird version that I’ve got somewhere of ‘Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?’ that sounds a bit like ‘R U Mine’,” Helders said. “It is really fun to listen to but it just wouldn’t have worked.”“I think once [frontman Alex Turner] is done with something, he really has to feel like he can move on to the next thing, because he has given everything to that moment and there’s nothing left after that, I don’t think.”‘R U Mine’ had been released in early 2012 and saw the band embrace a more raucous, rock-oriented sound.

Les Savy Fav’s Tim Harrington on being bipolar: “This thing you love can also be the thing that makes you miserable”

Les Savy Fav frontman Tim Harrington has spoken to NME about the band’s return to recording with their new album ‘OUI LSF’, their first in 14 years – and how it was shaped by his bipolar diagnosis.The New York veterans’ sixth LP comes following an extended hiatus, that saw Harrington turn his hand to writing children’s books and getting a “jobby” job as a creative director, while bassist Syd Butler and guitarist Seth Jabour joined the 8G Band (house musicians on the talk show Late Night With Seth Myers), drummer Harrison Haynes focussed on fine art, and guitarist Andrew Reuland worked in film and television as a writer and editor.Harrison, however, alo endured “a rough period with mental health” after being diagnosed with bipolar during the time between Les Savy Fav albums.“I hear a lot of creative people, when they talk about mental health and getting it together and finally getting on meds, they’re like, ‘Oh, [the creativity] is gone, I can’t find it.’ For me, I had to come to the realisation that it’s always there. I’m always me.

Los Campesinos! are back with news of a new album ‘All Hell’ – their first since 2017. Check out the heart-on-sleeve single ‘Feast Of Tongues’ below.Announced today (May 15), the news of a new album marks the first from the Welsh indie-pop group in seven years, and comes as the follow-up to their 2017 album ‘Sick Scenes’ and 2021 EP ‘Whole Damn Body‘.Speculation that a new LP was on the way arose earlier this year, when the members confirmed that they would be embarking on a North American tour this summer, and also debuted a new song called ‘A Psychic Wound’ while in London.Now, they have confirmed that a full album is on the way, and will be called ‘All Hell’.Set for release on July 19 via the band’s Heart Swells label, the members have revealed that the motif of the LP will capture a wide variety of themes, including “drinking for fun and drinking for misery”, “death and dying”, “love and sex”, “late-stage capitalism” and practically everything in between.It is produced by the septet’s Tom Bromley, and will also see the band team up with other musicians including Holly Carpenter on violin, Eileen McDonald Sparks on cello, and Jon Natchez on saxophone.Along with the announcement of the album, Los Campesinos! have also dropped the new single ‘Feast Of Tongues’ – a bittersweet anthem that sees the band wear their hearts on their sleeves.“Love lies bleeding in dead bouquet/ Dread the dripping years and wish away each day/ Swear I’d live through all of your nightmares/ If it meant that I could sleep okay,” sings Gareth David as the track gradually builds to its opening lines.

Hex Girlfriend: “This is a lot more Dead Kennedys than The Smile”

Hex Girlfriend have spoken to NME about their journey from a low-key collaboration in university halls to high-energy sold-out shows on the London DIY circuit, their “political” new EP, and existing outside of the shadow of a famous father.The industrial pop project of South London-based musicians James Knott and Noah Yorke – the son of Radiohead frontman Thom – explained how they have enjoyed thriving on their own terms.“I just don’t get the fascination,” said Yorke of people comparing the band to his father’s work. “This is a lot more Dead Kennedys than it is The Smile.”Having just returned from a writing trip in Los Angeles, the duo said that new material will likely see them pursue a more political direction inspired by their experiences in the US as it gears up for the presidential election.“The EP is sort of about how fascism hides between the doors of golf clubs,” Yorke said.

Over 100 acts have now dropped out of The Great Escape 2024 in Gaza boycott, with support from Massive Attack

Great Escape Festival in solidarity with Palestine, with Massive Attack also speaking out in support of the boycott.The 2024 edition of the event – which showcases new and rising artists – is due to take place across various music venues in Brighton from tomorrow (May 15) until Saturday (18).The Great Escape is sponsored by Barclays, which has been a source of controversy amid the ongoing conflict in Gaza because of the bank’s financial investment in companies that supply arms to Israel.The issue was first highlighted in a petition started by the promoter How To Catch A Pig and the band The Menstrual Cramps – which has since been signed by musicians including Kneecap, Lambrini Girls, Alfie Templeman, Lip Critic, Wunderhorse and Mary In The Junkyard.Last month, Cherym pulled out of The Great Escape as a result of the festival’s connection to Barclays, before record labels Alcopop and Big Scary Monsters joined the boycott and withdrew from the event.Dozens more acts soon followed suit, with over half the line-up demanding that The Great Escape drop its sponsorship deal with Barclays.Speaking about their decision not to play the festival, Lambrini Girls said: “We will not be appearing at The Great Escape festival this year. This is a targeted approach of a cultural boycott, considering Barclays sponsorship.“Barclays provide financial services of over £1BN pounds to companies supplying military technology and weapons to the IDF, perpetuating the horrors unfolding in Gaza.”Now, 106 artists have cancelled their scheduled appearances at The Great Escape 2024 in total – constituting approximately a quarter of the full programme.

Noel Gallagher defends not doing Poznan at Man City game after Liam calls out “poor behaviour”

Noel Gallagher has defended not joining in with the Poznan at Manchester City’s match against Fulham last weekend, after his brother Liam called it “poor behaviour”.The former Oasis member attended last Saturday’s away game (May 11), which saw his beloved football team clinch a 4-0 win and move closer to the top of the Premier League table.But unlike the huge sea of Man City fans surrounding him, Gallagher refused to join in with the Poznan (where fans link arms, turn away from the pitch and begin bouncing).Images and videos of the moment subsequently went viral, with some people suggesting that the unimpressed-looking Gallagher could have been shooting the cover art for his next album.The High Flying Birds frontman’s estranged brother and former bandmate Liam also called out his “poor behaviour” in a post on X/Twitter.Noel has since spoken out about being spotted at the game during an interview with talkSport.
