    In 1978 a group of students forms a band in order to make covers of their favourite reggae tracks. They take the name UB40 from a government form for the unemployed. Soon they become pretty famous with songs like Red Red Wine and Can't Help Falling In Love. In 2008, after almost 30 years with the group, vocalist Ali Campbell quit the band and went solo with his own version of the "best reggae band in the world"

    Autumn is the best season for a new Paradise Lost album. Faith Divides Us - death Unites Us is the perfect soundtrack for long walks in the fallen leaves. On 4 December the band is coming to Sofia for the second time, so we had a chat with their vocalist Nick Holmes who turned out to be a very pleasant company, a keen Celtic Frost fan and a homebird.

    Hypercube are four guys from Sofia who do not want to be a cliche and play a wonderful mix of alternative, drum'n'bass and electronics. Looks like their efforts are paying back - the organizers of Spirit of Burgas invited them for a second time on the Jack Daniel's stage. So we asked some more details from the band's guitar players - Ilia and Asen.
