The European Commission, Parliament and Council agreed on new copyright rules for the digital age, after two and a half years of very difficult negotiations and a series of trilogues this week. As often happens towards the end of the legislative jungle journey, the fact there’s an agreement gets top billing, while the details get lost in the weeds. And as always, the final product is a compromise, full of highs and lows. So what’s in there? 1) The directive allows press publishers to negotiate compensation for having their content displayed on Google News (and other platforms, theoretically, if an upstart news aggregator manages to give the tech giant a run for its money). Imagine, if you will, Google as an old-world art … [Read more...] about POLITICO Brussels Playbook, presented by The Boeing Company: The memes are safe — Don’t mention migration — Freudian tweets

No es una cuestión de edad. Hay músicos veteranos que están muy vivos: Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney... Se trata de una cuestión de actitud, de ser creativo, de no querer vivir (solo) de las rentas. Los hay que se toman esta vida con pasión renovada cada mañana y otros con un posicionamiento rutinario. Aunque su pasado sea glorioso... Nos sabemos de memoria sus canciones, los hemos visto en directo y, en fin, los hemos disfrutado a tope. Pero hay que saber retirarse (o renovarse) a tiempo para no lastimar una buena carrera. En esa situación están estos veinte... - The Strokes Tuvieron la oportunidad de retirarse dignamente, pero... Una vez superado el reinicio del efecto 2000, el siglo XXI era un folio en blanco en el que todo estaba por escribir. Hasta que en 2001 llegaron The Strokes con su aclamado debut Is this it para copar todas las portadas y llenar miles de páginas en la prensa. Ríos de tinta y todo tipo de … [Read more...] about Veinte grupos que deberían pensar en retirarse lo antes posible
Thirty years have passed since the term 'Madchester' was coined to describe an explosion of creativity in the city. It was a period in which Manchester became seen as a world centre for youth culture after local producers Guy Called Gerald and 808 State developed the Acid House sound, and a clutch of local bands who had been around for a while - like The Stones Roses, Happy Mondays, Inspiral Carpets, James, and The Charlatans found commercial success. Factory Records, New Order and the Hacienda were the beating heart of the scene. But the very thing that transformed the Hacienda's fortunes helped bring about its destruction, as the club became a magnet for gangsters. Here, Chris Osuh looks at what went wrong. Between the pills and thrills of the Hacienda years there were bellyaches - and the biggest of them all, for the club's management, was Greater Manchester's gangland. In January 1991, shots were fired in the foyer. Days later, a young man was turned away at the door, came back … [Read more...] about How the Hacienda became a gangsters’ paradise
As the Evening Standard still refuses to give my annual pop awards the kind of glitzy ceremony, star presenters and shiny trophies that the theatre and film bashes enjoy, I’m forced once again to ask you to use your imagination to visualise this page being read aloud by Rihanna in the Dorchester ballroom. Look! There’s Marshmello, applauding gallantly. It’s been a bumper year for music moments, just a few of which are celebrated in the hastily made-up categories below. Thanks for reading, see you in January! Comeback of the Year - George Ezra Ezra released a catchy, peppy comeback single in the summer of 2017 called Don’t Matter Now. It peaked in the charts at a feeble number 66. Clearly the public was holding out for even catchier, peppier fare. Paradise went to number two in the spring, then Shotgun hit number one and became the song of the summer. His second album, Staying at Tamara’s, is zooming towards double-platinum status and … [Read more...] about The best (and worst) moments of music in 2018
