Throwback Thursday – Bond theme tunes

The name’s Bond, James Bond. Can you believe it’s nearly two years since we got our teeth into the last Bond film? We’re feeling some withdrawal symptoms. No more explosions, no more Daniel Craig coming out the water in Speedos, no more M – literally. There have been murmurs of another James Bond film on […]

Throwback Thursday – Going solo

The great Robbie Vs. Gary debate. Who will go solo first, Harry Styles or one of the other ones? Which Spice Girl would have solo success? Boy bands and girl bands are great and all that, but it’s always that niggling thought – which one is going to succeed when the bright lights fade away? […]
