Before we all getting into the Christmas spirit, I would like you to know about this Brightonian formation, called Dear Prudence. Yes, after that The Beatles song in a Siouxsie and The Banshees cover. The people behind the name are Madeleine Poncia front lady, Rick Ahir guitarist, Paul Egan bassist, Andy Highmore keyboardist and Alexis Nunez drummer.
I think I first heard about Dear Prudence when I was looking through this year`s Reading Festival line-up (they played BBC Introducing Stage). As usual, I didn`t care much and my festival schedule was full but few weeks later somehow, I got to listen to 'Coming Apart Again' and it proved how talented they are and I had to regret not seeing them live.
There is something in their music that reminds me of days spent by the sea in Brighton. The pier, carousels, rollercoasters, Brighton-Eye (that`s how I call that wheel, not sure if it`s the real name of it though), eating candy floss, hanging out with friends, etc...not the typical beach vibes but Brighton-beach vibes. If you go there, you might understand...might not - I see things in strange angle sometimes.
The other thing I love is Madi`s voice. So unique and beautiful. Once you`ve heard it sure you can`t find any example for who`s got the same voice as her. But let me know if you do! She also sings on one of the new Lower Than Atlantis songs.
I`m not really a Cindy Lauper fan but this cover for 'Time After Time' is something amazing:
Hollywood was struck with the tragic death of actor Paul Walker on Saturday, who was best known for his leading role in the Fast and the Furious franchise. Paul died in a tragic car accident in Santa Clarita, California after he and a friend slammed into a light pole while driving a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. He was 40-years-old.
Take a look back at Paul's career. HOLLYWIRE
