Interview with Hurts

From the very beginning of their career, opinions about Adam Anderson and Theo Hutchcraft are diametrically opposed: some love them for aesthetics and pop music for a wide audience, others hate them for the same reasons.

The best Manchester bands of all time

And if we say frankly, we mean a much more specific period of time (namely 20 months), during which the albums “You You Experienced”, “Axis: Bold as Love” and “Electric Ladyland”, are Hendrix’s only studio work , completed during his lifetime, were still in dreams. Following this, he began to move along the winding path of creative stupor, the fight against Continue reading
