Joseph Perry’s News Crunch: The Boy is Zac in Town

Joseph Perry crunches the news of Zac Goldsmith

Joseph Perry’s News Crunch: The Boy is Zac in Town
What’s the story?
Zac Goldsmith has been given the go-ahead from his constituents to stand as the Conservative candidate in the Mayor of London election.

With Boris Johnson standing down as London Mayor after eight years in the post, the Conservative Party needs a charismatic candidate to pick up where Bo Jo left off. For many, Goldsmith is the man to stand in the 2016 Mayoral election.

Signs that Goldsmith would stand became increasingly apparent after his huge General Election victory back in May. He was one of few Tory MPs in London to excel, growing his majority in Richmond Park to over 35% (until 2010 the seat was held by the Lib Dems).

Review: Drones - Muse

Simon Fearn Reviews Muse's latest album - and he doesn't hold back!

One of the perennial questions in the music industry has to be: what have Muse done now?

The 21st Century’s answer to Queen, each release seems to mark an exponential increase in ambition and silliness. Anyone for a three-part rock symphony (the end of The Resistance) or a would-be Bond theme, featuring vocals so piercingly high they make you wince (‘Supremacy’ from the previous album)? Now the inevitable has happened: Muse have written a full blown concept album.

The band have ditched their brief flirtation with dubstep for what they describe as a ‘back to basics’ approach, which seems to involve a riff centred, dirty rock vibe (mostly). But where they’ve toned down their musical wackiness, conceptually they’ve become even more ridiculous.

The story, devised in the dark recesses of Matt Bellamy’s brain (and this is only my best guess), is the tale of a disenfranchised protagonist…
