Meaty music. So my old band have a new EP out. We Tried, which is a better song than The Script’s We Cry, is the lead “single” from it. It sounds massive. As briefly explained in this introductory tumblr post, … Continue reading
That was then… And this is now… [disclaimer - "Cruel" is a potential video and song of the year candidate, it will lodge itself in your consciousness] So I talked before about my favourite ever show – Sufjan Stevens in … Continue reading
retreat. retreat. retreat. So last Friday, Sunburnt Jets aka Colin Boylan aka mybrotherfromanothermother (and father) released a batch of 3 new songs. This retreat // out of here // blood brick EP follows on from his Low Flying Crow LP … Continue reading
It’s a scoobie oobie doobie scoobie doobie melody. So if I said to you one of my favourite actors is famous for appearing in two of cinema’s best-loved celebrations of madness, One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975) and The … Continue reading

“At times in my life the only place I have been happy is when I am on stage.” So today, May 24th, Bob Dylan turns 70 years of age. Wasn’t really sure what to post for his birthday. I figure … Continue reading
Seems like we survived so.
“Something that makes things visible or affords illumination.” So, a few days ago, the new TV on the Radio album, Nine Types of Light, leaked. This thick ooozy leak seeped right into the dredges of my Google Reader, giving me … Continue reading
A little bit of me gone. It’s not often that you get two big surprises in a day. Unfortunately yesterday brought a double dose of something sad. First of all, Twitter informs me, in very simple terms… And then a … Continue reading
When I used to go out I would know everyone that I saw, Now I go out alone if I go out at all…
On a sunlit stage… Villagers played here in Toronto on Monday night in the lovely Drake Hotel‘s basement venue for the paltry sum of $10 (€8). I only realised before the show that I hadn’t been to a proper paid … Continue reading
