The All New Adventures Of Us
new single 29 September
Another chart challenger from the lengthily named The All New Adventures Of Us and at 2'50" the radio edit is well worth play on Radio's One, Two and ILR. A jaunty upbeat 149bpm Firetruck and it's four minute (Doki Doki) ? album version have a certain accoustic pop aloofness which makes them attractive propositions. A third track on this promo cd, the mellow 'I Do Eyes' (Demo Version) again though pleasant is rather more sombre with it's downbeatr lyric "You can force yourself to love, but don't tell yourself they'll stay". I like them, Northampton's soon to be famous seven are on the way

The Foals
Olympic Airways
new single 29 September
People do seem to be aquiring a genuine love for The Foals. With 'Olympic Airways' It seems mainstream success is on their collective minds now with a four minute tune featuring a lighter airy style of vocals over their trademark beat and at a rather more leisurely 139bpm. Even though many will have this on their album new fans will give this a Top Twenty possibity

Pacey Singer
new single 22 September
Some showpiece footage to be found on YouTube reveals a good satge presence to accompany the ironic 'Pacey Singer'. A bit of a strange title, which kinda stands out and makes it a curio, "Don't have a problem with the women when your wallets full as mine ... well my name is Pacey Singer don't follow me - follow me". At 119bpm it's a good single with a certain addictive darkness ... a hit maybe

At last Madonna in Cardiff, the Council says she had to compete with other Bank Holiday tourists

BH, it's Madonna

In a music event something akin to The Beatles at Cardiff Capital in 1964, Madonna, 50 not out, began her latest world tour in Cardiff

It is the first time the Millennium Stadium has been picked to start a world tour and stadium manager Gerry Toms said it showed the venue had the confidence of the industry.
"They could have gone anywhere in Europe but they had the confidence in Cardiff, not just the stadium, but Cardiff as a whole to deliver. We should take some strength from that."

Unveiling a stage show with 250 crew, £1m of jewellery, 16 dancers and eight costume changes. It was the first of 51 dates in a tour which takes in 16 European venues, including London's Wembley Stadium, before moving on to North and South America.

The set up includes - two stages, £lm of jewellery, 69 guitars, 3,500 individual wardrobe elements, 100 pairs of fishnet stockings with 100 pairs of kneepads. 30 wardrobe trunks with 18 clothing racks and nine wardrobe crew. 12 seamstresses in Cardiff worked to finish the costumes for opening night. 120 powder puffs, large freezers to carry ice packs for Madonna and her dancers. Also travelling on the tour are a chiropractor, a personal trainer and a masseuse, there are 10 cases of medical supplies and 12 trampolines for rehersal by Madonna and the dancers.

Madonna performed around 20 hits from her 25-year career, with the show split into four sections - Pimp, Old School, Gypsy and Rave.
The Millennium Stadium's stage was flanked by the giant letter M on both sides, with the roof shut as rain fell.

The Pimp section of the concert was described as a "mashed-up homage" to 1920s deco and modern gangsta pimp, in which Madonna made an entrance dressed by Givenchy. The Old School show section saw Madonna return to her early 1980s downtown New York City dance roots. There was a Romanian folk music and dance-influenced Gypsy section, before the Rave element, which had far eastern influences, emerging "all sparkly and sporty".

But strangely with it being the first date of Madonna's tour, £55 tickets were still available shortly before the event, leading Cardiff's Liberal / Plaid Cymru Council to claim "most of the city's hotels were full because it was a bank holiday weekend and not due to Madonna". Yeah right
