Urban Dance Squad were a Dutch band whose music was a blend of genres such as hard rock, funk, soul, hip hop, reggae, and ska. They were one of the first mainstream acts to incorporate a turntablist in a live line-up. They are often considered as pioneers of the crossover trend of the early 1990's, commonly referred to as rapcore.
In the U.S., the band is still associated with their hit "Deeper Shade of Soul", which topped at the 21st spot on Billboard's Hot 100 in 1991. "Deeper Shade of Soul" samples the 1968 Ray Barretto song of the same name. In their native Europe, however, they have enjoyed popularity throughout their career and most listeners at the time discovered them through their popular single "Demagogue" (1994).

Yeah,Yeah, Yeahs y Urban Dance Squad. casualidad?

Typically British!

Chicken tikka masala is Britain's favourite curry dish and it is said to have been invented by a Bangladeshi chef. It is supposed to be an Indian dish, yet nobody in India knows about it. Meanwhile in Britain, Marks & Spencer sells about 19 tonnes of the chicken tikka masala curry every week and 23 million portions a year are sold in Britain's more than 8,000 Indian restaurants, half of them located in and around London.

William Shakespeare and Cristopher Marlowe

Christopher Marlowe, Playwright: Marlowe would be the ultimate ghost writer, as he was stabbed to death in a tavern brawl in 1593. However, there are those that say Marlowe really didn't die; according to some, he was actually an occasional spy in the employ of the Crown. This eventually necessitated a fake death, after which Marlowe went on for an undetermined number of years penning poetry and plays under the nom de plume of Shakespeare. PBS also aired a January 2003 "Frontline" episode about Marlowe.

Frederick Rolfe / Baron Corvo

'Hadrian the Seventh' (also known as "Hadrian VII") is probably the best-known work of the English novelist Frederick Rolfe, who wrote as 'Baron Corvo'.Frederick William Rolfe, alias Baron Corvo, was one of the more freakishly talented eccentrics of English letters. A homosexual, a paranoiac, a scoundrel, a petty blackmailer and a fake, he was constantly in debt, sponged on his friends, excoriated his enemies and died in 1913 in self-imposed exile in Venice. At 26 he converted to Roman Catholicism and trained for the priesthood. Twice dismissed from seminaries, he retained a lifelong conviction of his priestly vocation.
A wine merchant of prose—witty, luxuriant, Latinate—Rolfe poured out a minor masterpiece of wish fulfillment in his novel Hadrian VII, an account of how a once-rejected candidate for the priesthood was astonishingly elected Pope out of a clear blue Roman sky. Now Hadrian has been skillfully dramatized by Peter Luke, who also relies on A.J.A. Symons' biography of Rolfe, The Quest for Corvo. The result is an effulgent theatrical success in a wan London dramatic season.

Christopher Marlowe was christened at St George's Church, Canterbury, on 6 February 1564. He was born to a shoemaker in Canterbury named John Marlowe.[1] Marlowe attended The King's School, Canterbury

William Somerset Maugham O.K.S. The most 'english' of writers...

Acutely scathing, a great observer, and drily witty. This man set the pace for British writing style in the last century.
Two years after his mother's death, Maugham's father died of cancer. Willie was sent back to England to be cared for by his uncle, Henry MacDonald Maugham, the Vicar of Whitstable, in Kent. The move was catastrophic. Henry Maugham proved cold and emotionally cruel. The King's School, Canterbury, where Willie was a boarder during school terms, proved merely another version of purgatory, where he was teased for his bad English (French had been his first language) and his short stature, which he inherited from his father.
It is at this time that Maugham developed the stammer that would stay with him all his life, although it was sporadic and subject to mood and circumstance.[6]
Life at the vicarage was tame, and emotions were tightly circumscribed. Maugham was forbidden to lose his temper, or to make emotional displays of any kind — and he was denied the chance to see others express their own emotions. He was a quiet, private but very curious child, and this denial of the emotion of others was at least as hard on him as the denial of his own emotions.
The upshot was that Maugham was miserable, both at the vicarage and at school, where he was bullied because of his small size and his stammer. As a result, he developed a talent for applying a wounding remark to those who displeased him. This ability is sometimes reflected in the characters that populate his writings.

Origen del 'mito' de Faust

The origin of Faust's name and persona remains unclear, though it is widely assumed to be based on the figure of German Dr. Johann Georg Faust (approximately 1480–1540), a dubious magician and alchemist probably from Knittlingen, Württemberg, who obtained a degree in divinity from Heidelberg University in 1509. According to one account, Faust's infamy became legendary while he was in prison, where in exchange for wine he "offered to show a chaplain how to remove hair from his face without a razor; the chaplain provided the wine and Faustus provided the chaplain with a salve of arsenic, which removed not only the hair but the flesh" (Barnett).
