Who Likes Rock n Roll?

Hands up. Who likes rock and roll?

And by rock and roll we mean proper rock and roll, born in the 50's, dragged kicking and screaming through the late 20th century, a ragged flag passed from generation to generation under the stewardship of true believers – Chuck Berry, John Lennon, Phil Lynott, Keith Richards, Bruce Springsteen.

This is not rock and roll as a device to sell Rimmel lipstick. This is not rock and roll as tool to suggest someone or something is “edgy”. This is visceral, bloody and urgent. Music imbued with a defiant, rambunctious energy which can never die. This is, The Minutes.
