Never mind Spongebob Whatsisname, as from this Friday, the word 'sponge' will belong to only one entity, and that's the Super Sponge Trio! If you're not too familiar with the name (yet), that's because it's one of the latest arrivals on the local mus...

It was a chilly November night, Friday the 15th to be exact, in 2013 that The Water Rats in London's King's Cross opened its doors to what effectively would become the first edition of Malta Takes London (MTL). Born out of the idea of a two-band Lond...

Last year's Rock The South flaunted all the fours with its '44 acts over four days' fourth edition. This year's fifth anniversary edition, which is endorsed by  the Valletta 2018 Foundation, will see the festival go back to a three-day format, but it...
