Inspired Elbow captivate fans

Guy Garvey's trademark husky vocals would resonate with me long after I left the Elbow concert, which was held in KITEC in Kowloon Bay. 'So throw those curtains wide! One day like this a year would see me right...'

What a day it was.

Build a Rocket Boys! Elbow (DVD)

One word sums up Elbow's fifth album, Build a Rocket Boys! - poetry.

The collection follows the format Elbow does best: a mix of dreamy guitar and piano-led melodies, bluesy guitar riffs and poetic lyrics. The band claim that lyrically the songs recount the ups and downs - mostly downs - of being young, seen through the eyes of someone who both loved and hated the experience.

Aaron puts the blinkers on

There are fans, and then there are the real fanatics. They stalk a star's every appearance and infiltrate the most exclusive cordon just to get close to their idol and snap a few pictures. So it was with Aaron Kwok Fu-sing (left) when he opened a new Clarins store on Friday on Canton Road.

Where beauty meets melancholy

We need more than cheerful music. Listening to an aching sound that echoes your mood can heal your wounded soul.

Since The Verve's History and On Your Own (both from their 1995 classic A Northern Soul), I have never come across anything as painful, yet soulful - until now.

This is Cast of Thousands by British band Elbow.

Cast Of Thousands (V2)

They've had a tough time of it, Elbow, being dropped twice in quick succession by two different labels. But things seem to have fallen into place with Cast Of Thousands, their second album.

Girl more 'reserved' after fall from slide

A five-year-old girl became withdrawn after falling off a slide in a family entertainment centre and breaking her elbow, her mother has claimed.

A BABY boy abandoned on a rubbish heap in Macau last July is to be sent to Sweden for adoption. When found, he had deep bite wounds from rats or dogs to his right elbow and leg. The elbow was broken and tendons in his hand were severed.
