FIRST AID KIT – IT’S A SHAME

I can only apologise to you and myself, for missing the boat entirely and only discovering today, the release of a brand new track by Swedish duo First Aid Kit. ‘It’s A Shame’ was unveiled late in the day, on the 28th of September (a week tomorrow) and snuck right by us. I can only…

RIP TOM PETTY

Waking up on any given day in 2017 is a minefield and usually involves discovering some awful or tragic news from the hours in which we were all asleep. It’s occurring more and more recently whether it be news of war or violence, political disappointment or the passing of a star or icon. The latter…

BOB DYLAN / TRIPLICATE

One of the biggest legends of all time in the music world, Bob Dylan released his 38th studio album ‘Triplicate’ this past Friday and the icon doesn’t appear to have missed a beat. The new album features a similar lounge feel to his previous few albums, as he continues to reinvent his sound and his style…

WORLD POETRY DAY

On 2017’s World Poetry day, it’d be a crime to not mention it, recognise it and celebrate it, if for nothing else but for its close connection and continued use in music. Lyrical arrangement has always had a tight affiliation with music and both music and poetry in its most based form can be as considered as…

THROWBACK THURSDAY / 1966

There are more than a lot of reasons why 1966 was an important year in history. It was fifty years ago this year since England won the World Cup, Carnaby Street in London became the fashion capital of the world and the space race was hotting up between Russia and the USA. But what I’ll…

HAVE YOU HEARD… / …THE BAND?

The Last waltz, but not the least… A retrospective on a band that never became a household name, but gave so much to so many. We’ve done a couple of these ‘You Oughta Know…’ features already, and this is the first retrospective one we’ve done but with very good cause in my opinion. The intent…

HAVE YOU HEARD… / …THE WALKMEN?

I remember a time when you’d search ‘The Walkmen’ on Google and become a fountain of knowledge on them. Did you know that since 1979, over 220 million units had been sold worldwide until the discontinuation occurred in 2010? Google had obviously assumed that I had meant to type ‘The Walkman’, Sony’s very popular portable…

Here’s what we think you should definitely watch: God Bless Ozzy Osbourne This Jack Osbourne produced documentary provides us with one of the most honest accounts in to the life of…

Bob Dylan / Tempest

Anyone who’s known me personally for more than five minutes, will know that i’m a huge Bob Dylan fan, at  times have even been fanatical about him and his work, and have had periods where simply nothing else will do when the time comes to throw some music on. So, I apologise in advance if this…
