And so we reach the halfway point in this list of intricate and inspiring melodies from the year that was due to bring about our Armageddon. I apologise for that little outburst.

Introducing – Golden BC

I get a lot of emails from bands and PR companies alike asking me to listen to their album and possibly write a review. Regrettably I do not always have time to get through all these requests. But I'm hoping to rectify this, a little bit anyway, by showcasing some of the very talented bands … Continue reading Introducing – Golden BC

Aslan @ INEC Acoustic Club 16/06/12

Aslan’s gig at the INEC proved to be a real diverse affair. The crowd varied from the die-hard apostles, who followed the band from the early stages, to the new fans embarking on their Aslan pilgrimage. The set-list did well to reflect this diversity with an interesting fusion of songs both old and new. The … Continue reading Aslan @ INEC Acoustic Club 16/06/12

Why Skyfall Is Not A Good Film

With Bond reaching the ripe ole age of fifty this year, something special was needed to mark the landmark occasion.

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? From the title of this post you may come to two very different conclusions. One, you may take the reference to … Continue reading A Song For The Weekend: The Fallen

Disappointment, Optimism And Of Course The Kinks

Before I start I should probably mention that the finalists for the Irish Blog Awards were announced this evening. And as you can probably guess that I was not included in the final list. But all I can say is that we'll get 'em next year. I was over the moon when I found out … Continue reading Disappointment, Optimism And Of Course The Kinks
