little-green-cars

Keeping inline with the tradition of all music websites publishing 'Top Lists' around this time of year,  I have decided to  release my very own. As you can probably tell from the title I have decided to publish my top 10 tracks of the year. So lets kick this highly original idea off with number … Continue reading Top 10 Tracks of the Year – The John Wayne

Introducing: Le Galaxie

Le Galaxie

For those of you who thought the synth movement of the 70/80's was dead, check these guys out. Le Galaxie are an electro-synth group  who hail from Dublin. Their music consists of an interesting blend of everything from Kraftwerk to Daft Punk. I wouldn't normally be the biggest fan of this genre but Le Galaxie … Continue reading Introducing: Le Galaxie

Ireland: The slave capital of Europe

On first glance this title may appear to be a bit extreme. Especially for those of you with the fantastical view of Ireland as a green lush country over-populated with mystical little leprechaun’s, where we dance our way to the pub to battle our on going love affair with the ‘black stuff’. A more likely … Continue reading Ireland: The slave capital of Europe

A Song For The Weekend: The Fallen

I recently came to the startling realization that my blog is lacking one vital component. Well it's missing many but I just happened to spot this one. So what absence an I talking about?

A Song For The Weekend: Yes, It’s Back!!

Okay as the title may suggest, It has been a while since my last SFTW (Song For The Weekend, I have no idea why I decided to abbreviate it when I was just going to post the full title in brackets anyway) post. The reason for this lengthy absence of weekend suitable tracks is because … Continue reading A Song For The Weekend: Yes, It’s Back!!

Kasabian

Here's a bit of Kasabian for you on this fine morning (Yes I realise that this might not apply to everyone because a) it might not be morning in your timezone and b) the weather might not be fine either.

Introducing: Raving Wild

  Raving Wild are a two piece  indie band from Aylesbury, England. They describe themselves as 'an acoustic indie duet with folk influences and some rock thrown into the mix'.
