With a sound self-described as ‘Big Morbid Death Pop’, Charlie Barnes make good on that oddly curious descriptor with the release of More Stately Mansions on 11th May. The album is available to stream exclusively with The Independent a week before release below.
The band, fronted by Charlie, play an audacious mish-mash of several styles. As [...]
With less than a week to go until the election, the Conservatives and Labour are tied in the latest ComRes telephone poll for the Independent on Sunday and the Sunday Mirror.
Both are on 33% of the vote, having both fallen two points since the last ComRes telephone poll (for the Daily Mail on Wednesday). If [...]
We have a ComRes opinion poll in The Independent on Sunday tomorrow, shared with the Sunday Mirror. This is our only poll of the campaign, and it has been carried out by telephone instead of online, as our usual series has been.
In addition to voting intention, we asked the following questions.

This month we’re looking forward to leaving the unpredictable April weather behind and settling down in the snow-free garden to enjoy the book bonanza that spring brings us. First up in the picture books category is a new offering from Julia Donaldson and Nick Sharratt; What the Jackdaw Saw (Macmillan), a story of friendship and sign language written in collaboration with a group of deaf children, is a reliably bold, bright and brilliant read from the golden couple of the book world.
As far as bike crashes go, it was pretty minor but it still shook me up. As I lay on the pavement along the main drag in Palma I realised I was lucky to be relatively unscathed and not to have wiped out any fellow riders taking part in what was a truly spectacular cyclesportive [...]

This small and impoverished country of 28m people lies in a prime earthquake zone – international experts were in Kathmandu just over a week ago predicting an imminent disaster.
And it happened in and [...]
A risotto traditionally takes a lot of love and care and a fair bit of attention but fear not, this offers a great alternative option which is low on demands and handiwork. You can simply roast your veg and cook the rice then combine and taste the results. Fresh herbs give this dish extra fresh flavours and the beetroots chips offer a variation of textures. This has to be an all time simple favourite. Keep your veg seasonal, fresh and ripe and you won’t go wrong.
My four-year-old daughter, Girl Outdoors, has a see-saw attitude to our allotment -a very up and down view of Plot 35a. Sometimes she loves it, wants to dig up potatoes that aren’t ready, can spend hours down there arranging her picnic chairs outside her playhouse and setting out tea and grass sandwiches as I work [...]
For now at least, talk of an “exodus” from UK debt and a “Gilts strike” looks premature.
Back from a mysterious 56-day “sabbatical” abroad, Rahul Gandhi, the Congress Party’s reluctant leader, has seized on a political battle over India’s land legislation, and the financial plight of poor farmers, as subjects for re-establishing himself as a possibly credible politician.
He has made two major public appearances – at a public rally in Delhi on [...]
