The ten most-read news stories on the CMU site in January 2015

Enter Shikari

Our most popular news story in January combined the popularity of Enter Shikari with the distaste for the privatisation of the NHS to rise to the top of our top ten.

After that came an obituary for Joe Cocker, who died just before Christmas, and the first of two Aphex Twin-related stories to make the list. Also in the top ten was, of course, the month’s big news: the launch of former East 17 singer Brian Harvey’s new YouTube channel. And there were also rumours that The Pirate Bay was planning to relaunch (which it did).

Our five most popular features in January were a new column from Eddy Temple-Morris asking for help to eradicate January from our calendars, a Beef Of The Week column on Alcopop! Records’ battle with UKIP, a CMU Trends Report on the fallout from the collapse of the Global Repertoire Database, a feature on Babymetal and an Approved piece on Susanne Sundfør.
