Noise Annoys: FIghting talk from Belfast band Duellists

David Roy
WHOSE idea was the video for your new single Into The Fade? Was it fun to shoot your own tribute to the classic Stephen King-penned horror, Christine? It's no surprise that Mike [Barr, drums] was the architect: He owns a ‘57 Chevy which I’m told is very similar to the Plymouth Fury from Christine, so it all made sense.

Noise Annoys: Jinx Lennon, Brand New Friend & Damo Suzuki

David Roy
BARELY 18 months after he released a pair of contrasting LPs on the same day, bold borderland bard Jinx Lennon is back with another new album, Grow A Pair!!!, a double-set which finds him further making up for a good few years there where he released nothing at all.
