Red Missed

Despite impassioned endorsements from some of my fave music-makers (such as Lily Allen, M.I.A., and Paloma Faith), and comedy-types (such as Kerry Godliman, Jessica Knappett, and Lazy Susan), plus plenty websites springing up to explain “tactical voting” options region-by-region, the … Continue reading

The Bat Takes A Bow

[Contains asymmetrical war-paint and SPOILERS!!!] Gotham finale-d out last week, after five seasons, and a hundred episodes, which fluctuated wildly between the exciting, satisfying, and infuriating.

Voxy: Week 14 (of 14!!)

Has it really been fourteen weeks since I first started watching The Voice (UK)? Oy! Ah well, it’s all over now bar the shouting (and bitter accusations of vote-rigging, of course). The Grand Finale began promisingly enough with Cody Frost … Continue reading

Voxy: Week 12

After months of pre-recorded shows, The Voice (UK) finally caught up to the present this week with its first Live Final! Whoop! Sadly, not all of the intended contenders were able to participate, as both Beth Morris (TeamPaloma) and Chloe … Continue reading

Voxy: Week 1

Last year I pledged to watch more of Paloma Faith‘s TV appearances, little suspecting that she would be cast as a judge on BBC1’s chair-centric singing contest The Voice (UK), which started its fifth season on Saturday. Having never seen … Continue reading

Like A Virgin (Rocker)

When Paloma Faith belted out an awesome cover of “Purple Haze” at Glastonbury and claimed that she’d been listening to a lot of Jimi Hendrix as inspiration for her new album, I assumed she was joking, and paying homage to … Continue reading

No Paloma

Although I greatly enjoyed watching Paloma Faith’s Glastonbury set on TV t’other week, I couldn’t help thinking that I’d much rather see her singing in an intimate club setting, than on a festival stage. Apparently the marketing peeps at MasterCard … Continue reading

“Let’s Make Babies!”

Last night I caught Paloma Faith’s Glastonbury set on BBC4, and thought she sounded fantastic… while also looking super-foxy in her stage outfit, as you can see! She seemed to be enjoying herself too, shaking her booty and jiving across the stage with … Continue reading
