Buzzcocks guitarist Steve Diggle has discussed the origins of punk in a new interview, claiming that the genre was born in Manchester. Diggle's comments come following the launch of the Punk London series of events, marking the 40th anniversary of what some deem as the birth of punk in the capital. Recently speaking to SideStory, Diggle instead insisted that the birthplace of punk was at the Sex Pistols famed gig at Manchester's Lesser Free Trade Hall in June 1976. "We brought The Pistols to Manchester, and we put the provinces on the map," Diggle stated. "A lot of people think that punk and The Sex Pistols started in London, but it wasn’t until they got to Manchester that they realised there was a scene going on. You know, they say Jesus was born in Bethlehem – well punk was born in Manchester. Those early gigs crystallised it all." Speaking about the Pistols' 1976 Manchester gig, Diggle said: "There weren't many people at that gig, it's true – there were more at the second one, three weeks later. But members of Joy Division were there, and members of The Smiths. I'm not sure about (Simply Red singer) Mick Hucknall... he may have been." Getty "The first time we came to London, I think, was to the [Oxford Street venue] 100 Club. It wasn’t long after that first gig supporting The Pistols in Manchester. It was supposed to be two sets, which we didn’t really like – we didn’t really do two sets. But after the first, they asked us to do another. They were so shocked and horrified by it!" Diggle went on to claim that these early gigs inspired a flurry of punk bands that followed: "Months after that, punk bands were everywhere. We wrote the play, and all the others found it in our dustbin! Look at Green Day. They’re just acting out a pantomime." Read the interview with Diggle in full here. US band Deerhunter recently covered 'Why Can't I Touch It?' by the Buzzcocks on BBC Radio 6 Music. Frontman Bradford Cox said he chose to play the song because "there's always a lull at a party when a longer song on a record is playing and people stare into their beers and stop talking for a minute – I always feel like this is that song."

An early radio interview with a 20 year old Aphex Twin has been unearthed and released. Aphex Twin is known for his shunning of the limelight, with his interviews and media appearances remaining sparse over the course of his career. The previously unheard radio interview - according to Electronic Beats - dates back to 1992 with, James appearing on German radio station DT64 on their 'Dancehall' show. Skip to 38 minutes in to hear Richard Dee James' interview. Aphex was best known for his ground breaking electronic tracks such as 'Come to Daddy' and 'Windowlicker'. He has remained one of the most elusive, influential and sought after producers in experimental electronic music. The Cornwall-hailing producer's latest album 'Syro' was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2015, but lost out to Benjamin Clementine. It was James' first traditional-style studio album in nearly 13 years. Getty In September 2015, James made his track 'Umil 25-01' available across various streaming services. 'Umil 25-01' was initially available only as a bonus track to those who pre-ordered his 'Orphaned Deejay Selek (2006-2008)' EP through the Bleep.com service earlier this year, and sits alongside the EP in terms of style. The eight-track EP was released on Warp Records on August 21, and represented a return to the AFX moniker that Richard James had previously abandoned following his 2004 vinyl-only 'Analord' series. Press 'Orphaned Deejay Selek (2006-2008)' follows some heavy recent dabbling in Soundcloud tracks over the past year that has seen Aphex Twin upload more than two hundred different cuts on the service, dating back to the 1980s.

Edith Bowman and former Big Brother winner Kate Lawler are among the DJs who will relaunch Virgin Radio in March. Virgin Radio will return on March 30 with Bowman hosting the digital station's breakfast show. The station has been absent from airwaves since 2008 when its owners rebranded it as Absolute Radio. Bauer have since bought the rights to the name and have confirmed its relaunch plans today (February 10). Press Bowman, thought to be the only solo female host of a breakfast show on commercial radio, will be joined on the station by DJ Lawler who has presented on Capital FM and Manchester based Key 103 since winning Big Brother in 2002. She will host the afternoon show with journalist turned TV personality Jamie East presenting the mid-morning slot. Matt Richardson, former host of ITV2’s Xtra Factor, takes on the drivetime slot while Tim Cocker will present the evening show. Cocker was a host on XFM before it was rebranded as Radio X in 2015 and he was replaced by Chris Moyles. The Virgin Radio brand will return after UTV Media secured a licensing deal with Richard Branson’s Virgin Group.

Mark Ronson has revealed a video for the two tracks he recorded with Tame Impala's Kevin Parker. Summer Breaking and 'Daffodils' both appeared on Ronson's 2015 album 'Uptown Special' and have been put together for a new video, directed by Theo Wenner. The video reflects the different nature of the songs with a lazy afternoon turning into a party at nighttime as 'Summer Breaking' transitions into the funkier 'Daffodils'. Speaking to Rolling Stone about the video, Ronson said: 'Summer Breaking' is probably my personal favorite on 'Uptown Special'. And seeing as Kevin and Tame Impala are so hot right now, we thought we could really make the most of this "hotness" by making a video for not one but two of his songs from 'Uptown Special', 'Summer Breaking' and 'Daffodils.' Theo Wenner made a beautiful video that really captures (and goes beyond) what we were envisioning when Michael Chabon wrote those haunting lyrics." Tame Impala return to the UK for huge gigs in Manchester and London this week. The Australian band announced details of their two biggest UK shows to date last year and tickets for the first London show at Alexandra Palace (February 12) sold out within hours of going on sale. The band's Manchester date will take place at Manchester Arena on February 11. Tame Impala play the following live dates: Manchester Arena (February 11) London Alexandra Palace (12-13)

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has urged metal fans to fight against racism following the recent controversy surrounding former Pantera singer Phil Anselmo. Anselmo was forced to apologise after being caught on film making a Nazi salute and shouting "White power" at the end of his performance at Dimebash 2016, a festival held in Hollywood last month in tribute to his late bandmate Dimebag Darrell. After initially dismissing his actions as a "joke", Anselmo came under fire from his peers in the metal community, with the likes of Machine Head's Robb Flynn and Anthrax's Scott Ian speaking out against the musician's actions. Answering fan questions for The Guardian, Taylor said that he had "kept mum for the most part" about the incident because "I wasn't there. So I don't know the background on what happened, I haven't seen the video of it - though I've been told by many people that it's blatant, and there's no way to misrepresent what was done." Taylor added: "I will say this. This is a bigger problem than what happened that night. Slipknot has dedicated itself to bringing people together, to fighting racism, to fighting hate in general since the day we were started. I don't have time for people who judge other people by the colour of their skin. If that in itself offends some of my fans, then I'm sorry, you're wrong. I don't ever want our fans to feel like we're judging them because of colour, religion, culture, upbringing, etc. We welcome everyone, we always have and we always will." While admitting that racism "is a problem in metal" and "across the board in music", Taylor remained confident that "it will take very little to eradicate racism from [the metal community] because the majority of it isn't racist". Getty Taylor said: "I know there is a problem in metal, and it all comes down to, at least in America, where you grow up and what that culture is passed on from: parents, family members, friends, adults. It's a generational thing. I thought we were close to phasing it out, but unfortunately I was proven wrong. So I just dedicate myself to fighting it. It's across the board in music, though - it's not a specifically metal thing. But it has come up in the metal community. It's risen its ugly head because of the incident we're talking about." "But I've not only played a lot of metal shows, I've been to a lot of metal shows, and I know for a fact they are quite diverse and they always have been. We welcome the tribe of misfits - we're the island of misfit toys, and we always have been. It will take very little to eradicate racism from metal because the majority of it isn't racist." READ MORE: How The Metal World Condemned Phil Anselmo’s Nazi Salute And White Power Message "What I love the most about the metal community is the sense of community that comes along with it," Taylor continued. "Unlike other genres there's a support system and common sense of appreciation for what we are all striving to achieve. It feels like when one of us crosses over and wins we all win. We are, collectively, kind of treated like bastard stepchildren by the rest of the music world, so any time we get to fly the flag in their faces, to me that means that more people are hearing what I consider real music. You get used to being a bastard stepchild, it goes hand in hand with the attitude, and the reactionary vibe of the music itself - which makes you feel something whether you want it to or not." Phil Anselmo recently issued a formal apology over his actions. He said that he "completely deserves" the criticism he's been receiving" and that "anyone who knows me and my true nature knows that I don't believe in any of that." He subsequently offered to quit his band following the incident.
