They’re not psycho killers, nor are they burning down the house

But they came to Hyde Park Book Club and brought their organised chaos. They didn’t fall short on giving us a taste of their neo-punk rock attitude. They may not be Talking, but they are definitely screaming. I guess less really is better?   False Heads are a London-based three-piece British rock band who have shared stages with and supported Frank Turner, the Libertines, even Queens of the Stone Age. They’ve had plays on Radio X, BBC 6 Music, Kerrang! and even all the way back in America on Sirius XM, where some of their tracks have been played by…

The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) found that China paves the way as the leading outsource for international students in the UK. Outshining any other nationality, Chinese students make up one-third of international students in the UK.

Can Student Digs Inspire a Solution To The UK’s Lack Of Housing?

If you’re living in ‘student digs’ you may be bemused that student style residences have been suggested as a possible answer to the demand for more accommodation, especially in London and other major UK cities.

Brexit – The Voice Of Those Who Couldn’t Vote

“We shall overcome, deep in my heart, I do believe we shall overcome and with this faith we will go out and adjourn the councils of despair, and bring new light into the dark chambers of pessimism. And we will be able to rise from the fatigue of despair to the buoyancy of hope.”Just over half of the UK voted to leave the European Union, leaving 64% of young people with a future they didn’t ask for because older generations wanted to get out of the EU. Many young people are questioning why people over the age of 60 are…
