The Music @ ABC, 5 Jul

The second coming of The Music finds them working their way towards fulfilling those early stadium ambitions
Event preview by Ally Brown.

It takes either great balls and genius wit, or great idiocy, to name your band 'The Music' - no matter which way you shake it, it just sounds stupid. The Music was a big new thing back in 2001 (see?), belying an inauspicious Yorkshire background by roaring epic psychedelic lurches along The Second Coming lines, as if they were born for stadium jams; and the singer, Robert Harvey, wailed like his surname was Plant. Then, things went pear-shaped: the hype died down, the follow-up album was a flop, and Harvey's substance addictions dropped him in to depression. Now recovered and raring to go, this is the second coming of The Music: working their way back up towards achieving those stadium ambitions second time around, they also have a new album out this month. Just don't try to find it on the internet - ingeniously, their name is ungoogleable. (Ally Brown)
