Hurts finds happiness

Hurts, the new British pop duo from Manchester, consisting of vocalist Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson, is all set for the release of their debut album Happiness.

Their brand of what they call 'emotional pop music' seems to be attracting fans, and they have played sold-out live shows in Manchester and London this year.

1. Bad Romance - Lady Gaga 'Rah rah ah-ah-ah/ Ro mah ro-mah-mah/ Gaga Ooh-la-la'. Say no more!

2. Already Home - Jay-Z feat. Kid Cudi This track off The Blueprint album is one I listen to whenever I'm out of town. It always gets me going.

Sounds of the Universe Depeche Mode (CD)

Depeche Mode's 12th album takes you back to the 1980s with 13 tracks of old-school digital synth pop. Far from being dated, the sound is still engaging.

Like the Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode made their name pioneering the digital sound of the decade fashion forgot, and has inspired many bands since.

Dance back to the future

Depeche Mode's 12th album Sounds of the Universe takes you back through time to the 1980s with 13 tracks of old-school digital synth pop. Far from being dated, the sound is oddly still engaging.

Like the Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode made their name pioneering the digital sound of the decade fashion forgot, and has inspired many bands since.

Rolling stone

FOR THE PAST 13 years, DJ Ricky Stone (far right) has been bringing his music to fans in nearly every corner of the world. Being current resident at C Club is only part of his Asian tour, after spinning in the Philippines, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Yugoslavia and Russia.

Green-light Glasto sold-out in a day

It's hard to say whether this is good news or bad news. After months of public hearings and debates in council chambers, Glastonbury Festival has finally received the go-ahead. But the tickets have been sold out within 24 hours. Weekend tickets priced at 105 pounds (HK$1,290) went on sale on March 31, and were all gone within just one day.

Bus TV a 'mute' point

I share the sentiments expressed in John Barclay's letter headlined 'Woeful TV on the buses' (South China Morning Post, October 13).

My frustration with the newly installed TVs on minibuses from Tai Hang to Causeway Bay has led me to write an official complaint to the Traffic Complaint Unit.

Joy for Mosse and Kan

Floral Joy can take the January Cup tonight for the in-form pair of Brian Kan Ping-chee and Gerald Mosse.

They were in treble form on New Year's Day and Floral Joy should love the return to Happy Valley after running unplaced at Sha Tin recently. His two previous visits to the Valley have resulted in placings and to some extent he was unlucky not to win.

Depeche Mode

Various - For The Masses (A&M) Depeche Mode has been on a downward spiral in the credibility stakes for the past few years. But the band's legacy as one of the pioneers of electronic music in the 80s remains. It does not come as a surprise, therefore, to see contemporary groups paying homage to the group.

Depeche Mode - Ultra (Mute) This album could probably be hailed as a back-from-the-brink effort from the godfathers of synth-pop: most groups would already have self-destructed with the loss of a key member and then having their lead singer suffer an extreme nervous breakdown.

Stadium gets its liquor quicker

THE much-harried restaurateurs who find themselves on their hands and knees as they try to get a liquor licence could be permitted a bemused smile if they've had occasion to visit the new Hong Kong Stadium during its first days of business.
