Red Hot Chili Peppers

It's a dizzying and confusing experience looking through the roll call of past and present Chili Peppers, but it's the constant throughout that's proven the key to their existence. Almost 30 years after their band's accidental formation, Anthony Kiedis and Flea are the glue that keeps it together...

Matthew Herbert

The sample-delic maverick has forged a musical album from a pig. And it's instrumental protest music. We step into the shit to find out why.

Ryan Adams

Ryan Adams is a changed man. The former wild child is now a picture of serenity. As Clash digs deeper, it seems loneliness and grief are at the core of his recent quietude.

Death Grip

Introducing the most visceral and essential hip-hop we've come across in years: Death Grips are raging against the machine.


The boisterous Berlin duo increase their bothering of genres, make one of the year's finest dance albums in the process.

Steve Reich

At 75, Steve Reich stands as one of the most influential and innovative composers in modern music. Continuing his inclination towards the darker side of inspiration, his latest work is a personal, affecting and provocative interpretation of 9/11. Clash meets the man with the unfathomable mind.

Tony Bennett

Still going strong at eighty five, there is a little that perennially cool crooner hasn't seen or done. As he returns to duet with some famous friends, we trace his colourful past to discover the secrets behind his success.
