Swedish House Mafia are no more. They played their last ever gig at the Ultra Festival in Miami in March to an audience of 150,000 dance music fans. It was the final date on a World Tour that saw the trio of house music DJ/Producers (Axwell, Steve Angelo & Sebastian Ingrosso) play massive stadiums all over the world, more used to hosting major rock/pop artists like U2, Bon Jovi, Madonna and Rihanna.

New Album & Forum Gig

Waterford band O Emperor are delighted to announce the release of their second album 'Vitreous' this coming June. They will launch it with a hometown live performance at The Forum in Waterford on Saturday, 15 June. Tickets (€15) are available now at Next Door (Forum), 051 871111 and http://www.forumwaterford.ie.

This is a follow up to their debut album 'Hither Thither' released in October 2010. While Hither Thither could be described as a lush tapestry displaying a classical use of depth and shading, 'Vitreous' presents the listener with a starker, polychrome and pixelated picture. Heavily distorted drums take their place alongside syrupy analogue synths and disgusting fuzz guitars sounding like bees buzzing inside tin cans. Beautiful landscapes are destroyed with disparate, abrasive sounds in perverse displays of artistic self-destruction.

It was fifty years ago since The Beatles released their debut album "Please Please Me" and then went on to dominate the charts throughout the world and become the greatest, most successful act in the history of popular music. Later the same year the "fab four" released their second album "With The Beatles", which instantly replaced "Please Please Me" at top of the charts. It was the first ever U.K. album to sell 1,000,000 copies and remained at No.1 for 21 weeks, giving the band a continuous run of 51 weeks at the summit! This, along with four u.k. number one singles and three chart topping E.P.s, made 1963, without doubt, the year that launched The Beatles to the world, and that was just the beginning...
