Do you remember your first time? While some may have the envious bragging rights of catching Rock City's first ever headliner (the Undertones on December 11, 1980) or Nirvana's intimate set just before Smells Like Teen Spirit blew up in everyone's ear drums (December 3, 1991)... others perhaps lie in the realms of guilty pleasures. Bjorn Again (December 24, 1992) anyone? Whatever the gig, there was one unifying factor; it was the same sticky floor fans were dancing on from December 1980- January 2019. Now that the original floor has been ripped up and replaced after nearly 40 years we thought it was a good enough time as any to look back on all the bands who contributed to the spilt pints, high heel dents and general wear and tear that comes from thousands of epic nights dancing on those iconic floorboards. So beloved are those wooden slats in fact, that 9,000 people have already registered their interest in buying a piece of the Talbot Street venue's floor.

The names were read out by: Andrew Ronald, Archie Cook, Jim McKinven, Shirley Bannatyne, Margaret Mathieson and Sheena Howarth during the remembrance service, at Highland Parish Church.Reverend Anne McIvor who officiated felt that the emotion was clear particularly when some surnames were repeated a number of times and readers slightly stumbled on the words. Rev McIvor read the dedication on the plaque to those who fell: ‘To the glory of him who died for all and in memory of the men of this congregation who laid down their lives in The Great War.’ The names of the fallen were: A Borthwick, A Brodie, J Brodie, D Brown, N Brown, G Campbell, J Campbell, N S Campbell, P Campbell, Dan Christie, D Christie, J Colville, D Conley, H Connor, W J Cook, N Currie, D Docherty, J Docherty, M Docherty, J D Galbraith, T Gillies, D Graham, J … [Read more...] about Church elders emotive list of the fallen

Kiwi songstress Lorde has made Rolling Stone's list of 100 Greatest Songs of the Century - so far. The only New Zealand musician to make the list, 21-year-old Ella Yelich-O'Connor comes in at number nine with her 2013 track Royals. Featuring in Rolling Stone's July 2018 edition, the list was curated after the magazine polled artists, critics and industry insiders, creating "the era's truly essential moments". The magazine labels Lorde's hit "maybe the greatest striver's anthem of our modern era". "Written in half an hour by a 15-year-old in Auckland, New Zealand - perfectly reasonable, since no one views the world's absurd unfairness, or their own rights within in it, with greater clarity than a 15-year-old, especially one situated 8,800 miles from Wall Street and the heart of pop-culture imperialism," Rolling Stone says.
