The Tings Tings ‘Do It Again’ gets a funk-tastic remix courtesy of Max Sedgley

It’s the weekend baby, and what better way to celebrate than with a bangin’ remix to get us shimmying: Niall Horan style.

The Ting Tings have got a fab new album out next week – check out our review here - and current single ‘Do It Again’ has just gotten one hell of a re-swizzle from DJ and producer Max Sedgley. The laid back disco cut gets an injection of full on funk madness with added strings and brass all over the shop, not to mention some excellent 70s cop show style guitars.

We LOOOOVE this.

MPer Jennifer shares her thoughts on ‘addictively page turning’ horror ‘Sick’ by Tom Leveen.

YOU REVIEW: MP!er Jennifer shares her thoughts on ‘Sick’ by Tom Leveen. His first step into the realms of horror YA fiction. 

Print

 

Describe the plot of ‘Sick’ in a tweet – Less than 140 characters please!

A story of high school friends and the battle they have to stay alive while all around them there are infected students killing any living person they see. [MP! note: Slightly more than a tweet but we'll let you off.]

 

What genre would you class the book as?

Horror.

What was the best bit?

For me there wasn’t a best bit I found it additively page turning from start to finish. It really surprised me as I wouldn’t usually go for a book in the horror genre. I really engaged with the storyline between Brian and Kenzie as it was very true to life, almost all of us have known someone affected by cancer and it helped me connect to the characters on a personal level.

Anything you didn’t like?

I don’t think I disliked any part of the book, only the cover as it lacked imagination. The content was well written and kept me engaged though out.

Would you recommend ‘Sick’ to your friends?

I would recommend this book to anyone, it’s easy to read and very well written.

Do you think it would appeal to girls or boys more? Or both?

I think it would appeal to both sexes, there’s different layers to the book and underlying stories.

Anything else you’d like to tell us about ‘Sick’?

The characters in the book were all very believable, Brian and his friends all came to life on the page. This book would make an incredible film!

‘Hate Your Guts’ is said to have whiffs of punk thrash to it, ooer. ‘Get Over It’ is a super infectious pop hit and ‘Beautiful Girls Are The Loneliest’ is the best ballad since ‘Sleeping With The Light On’ that’s the one you’re going to have to sway with your arms held high.

This album also see’s the lads collaborating with one of their all-tome heroes – Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus who helped them pen ‘Sensitive Guy’ and sing on ‘Hate Your Guts’. Speaking about the experience Tom said: ‘He’d been such a huge influence on our song writing that to finally get in a room with him was so fun, if slightly surreal!’

‘McBusted’ the album is available to preorder tomorrow and will be released December 1st.

Taylor Swift launches her ‘Sneaky Cat’ shoes with Keds.

We all stayed up late in the UK wondering, guessing, dreaming what Tay Tay’s big announcement would be at her Yahoo! live stream. After listening to ‘Shake It Off’, ‘Out Of The Woods’ and ‘Welcome To New York’ on repeat 89 times each we’re more than a little bit excited for the release of ‘1989’.

To coincide with the release of Ms. Swifts new album Keds have announced the ‘Sneaky Cat’ shoe. Lets have a closer inspection.

FEATURE1

 

You can tell this is Swifty inspired by the, you guessed it addition of a cute kitty. Move over Meredith & Olivia, there’s a curious cat peeking over the outer sides of each of these shoes.

You can never ever EVER have too many black shoes, with the addition of Taylor’s birthday 12-13-89 on the heel in gold script, there’s enough cuteness overload for anyone to rock these over the Autumn months.
