I have a subscription to Apple Music mostly because of my son, who wanted to switch from Spotify about 2 years ago. It had benefits as at the time the Spotify ‘Family’ bundle was for […]
I did a nice little video of my walking into the town hall, up the stairs and into the main hall, except it appears that after 3 seconds of filming I accidentally switched the recording […]
I re-visited something that I wrote back on November 19th, 2002, I wasn’t looking for it, I just stumbled across it, and, with some additions and amendments, here it is for the 99th Album that […]
Side 2, Track 15: Total Run Time: 60:00 minutes The Stranglers: Strange Little Girl: 3 Minutes 34 Seconds: 1981 Well, I do love The Stranglers, and it was either this or ‘Golden Brown’ to finish […]
The infinite playlist is now 100 tracks with a play time of 7 Hours and 44 Minutes. The Infinite Playlist
I like Nicolas Jaar, and I had never heard of Dave Harrington, though I was reasonably confident he wasn’t the Darts player from New Zealand. So I took a punt on double LP ‘Psychic’ by […]
There’s always been something I liked about Simon & Garfunkel, though I’ve never bothered to take the time to analyse quite what it is. A job lot of their albums were up for sale and […]
Here’s a playlist of reasonably new songs that have a feeling of being from an older time. There’s a video playlist as well, just because.
I knew nothing about this album until about 10 years ago. It was released when I was 8 and isn’t the sort of thing an eight year old listens to really. When I did come […]
Back with Rush again, and that gig I mentioned in my last post. Way back in 1981 (when I was fourteen) I bought a ticket for the ‘Exit Stage Left’ tour well in advance. I […]
I was in Head in Leamington, just flicking through the racks, and quite by accident I came across ‘Von’ by Sigur Rós. Though I wasn’t looking for it I wanted it, so I bought it. This […]
Ok, so there are certain records that one might be a bit embarrassed about, well, once upon a time one might, but nowadays I have absolutely no problem to confessing to liking things that many might never […]
Quite laid back, a 74 minute mix.
I love a bit of Mogwai. To some people it’s just noise, but I hear melodies that build and overlap, repeating themes and underlying rhythms that are often rather delicate. It feels to me that […]
Anger is an energy, just in case anybody was wondering. I plan on getting more P.I.L on vinyl if I can. At the moment this is the only one I have and it was, for […]
Made for a drive to work the other day.
Sometime in the 80’s (I think it was 1987) I saw Bob Dylan at the NEC in Birmingham. It was a little odd as the support act, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, did a long […]
It’s 1977, and I know absolutely nothing about this album or about who the band where. It wasn’t until 1979 (I was approaching 12 years old) when ‘Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick’ appeared and […]
