Narendra Modi hasn’t put a foot wrong since he won a resounding victory in India’s general election on May 16, and was then sworn in as prime minister two weeks ago. He invited South Asian (and Mauritius) leaders to the swearing in and had meetings with them all. Today he has met the visiting foreign minister [...]
David Cameron and Angela Merkel are in Sweden today talking about Jean-Claude Juncker. Merkel thinks that the former Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Jean-Claude Juncker, who also has substantial support in the European Parliament, would be an ok EU President. David Cameron and some like-minded Scandinavians vehemently disagree, seeing him as one of the last believers [...]
Alfredo moved to Ibiza from his native Argentina in the early eighties. Though the island was nowhere near as much of a clubbing hotspot as it is now, he became fascinated with DJing after picking up work at a bar – it wasn’t long before he’d become resident at Amnesia where he cultivated what became known as the ‘Balearic’ sound. He also inspired the UK’s acid house movement, after Paul Oakenfold, Nicky Holloway, Danny Rampling and Johnny Walker (AKA the Ibiza Four) visited Amnesia in 1987 and attempted to replicate what they’d heard with their own London club nights.

Interview with Hawk Eyes – “We’ve already shown that we can do all the guitar gymnastics… we need to show we can do other things as well!”
Hawk Eyes have been gathering momentum supporting a wide variety of the best rock acts in the world, including the likes of Iron Maiden, The Wildhearts, Alexisonfire, Jamie Lenman and System of a Down.

It’s a QTWTAIN, a Question To Which The Answer Is No, asked by Jamie Bartlett at the Spectator. But I was struck by this sentence:
According to Google’s Ray Kurzweil, in 2045 we will reach what’s known as ‘Singularity’: the point at which artificial intelligence becomes so advanced that it begins to produce new and ever [...]
I love the new cover for Eimear McBride’s Bailey’s-winning – and Goldsmith’s-winning and Kerry Group Irish Novel-winning – A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing. This is the mass market paperback, from Faber, following its first publication by tiny Norwich indie Galley Beggar Press (who are, full disclosure, my publisher also). But I think it does [...]
