The Problem With Music by Steve Albini

March 30, 2011

I came across an article I read a few years back at college whilst doing a course on Music & New Media Management. Its written by a top producer called Steve Albini, he produced Nirvana’s “In Utero”. Although quite dated now, the article is still 100% relevant, especially as the industry is still in decline. […]

Gigs At Jodrell Bank

March 7, 2011

This is the best idea I’ve heard for a long time. Why has nobody thought of this before? I honestly can’t think of a more awe inspiring setting for a gig. And who is headlining the first gig? Probably the most imaginative band out there – The Flaming Lips. I’ve mentioned them before on my […]

There must be about 6 current bands I actually like, one of the most recent being Tame Impala.

Now here’s a band that are my cup of tea, The Suns. Don’t you just love it when you find a band who know exactly what they’re doing? Before I say what I think they sound like, have a listen to this. Its like Telstar’s evil cousin who drinks whiskey all day, never shaves and […]

More check shirts?

Having ‘checked’ a few websites recently (see what I did there), I was pretty annoyed that most of the big names – Our Legacy, Folk, Aertex etc are still churning out more check shirts. Surely its time for plain shirts again? They’re always about anyway I know, but every week for the last 5 years […]
