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

Pop Songs I Don’t Hate

Pop-Music

I wanted to call this post 'Pop songs I can mildly tolerate without losing the will to live and wishing I had a hot poker to drive into my ears so the last thing I didn't hear as I left this world was the sound of that ghastly song'. But It was just a bit … Continue reading Pop Songs I Don’t Hate

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

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!!

Writer’s Block

I have had a serious bout of writers block for the past week which you may have noticed. I am not entirely sure why but every time I went to write something I just drew a blank. So then I came up with the extremely clever and unique idea of 'writing about not having anything … Continue reading Writer’s Block

Ben Howard – The Wolves

The song I have chosen this weekend is a bit different. The Wolves is Ben Howard's second single from his debut album, Every Kingdom. It was released in 2011 and reached a chart position of 97 in the UK single charts. It was re-released the following year and only managed to make up 27 places. … Continue reading Ben Howard – The Wolves

A Song For The Weekend: Elbow

For this weekend I have decided to go with a trio of Elbow tracks.  Once again they have been lighting up the summer festival scene with some impressive performances, especially at Isle of Wight. I don't think there are too many people out there who are unfamiliar with Elbow, so I will emit the bio … Continue reading A Song For The Weekend: Elbow

A Song For The Weekend: Snow Patrol

Following an epic gig last night at 'T In The Park' I cannot think of any other band more suitable for this weekends slot. Unfortunately though I had to make due watching the gig at home. But this did not take anything away from it. The band I am referring to is of course Snow … Continue reading A Song For The Weekend: Snow Patrol

Introducing: Raglans

Raglans

Introducing is a new section I have decided to add to my blog. It is like the radar only the bands I will feature will be a bit more established. Think of it as the Introducing stage at a music festival. For the first segment I have decided to feature 'Raglans'. Raglans are an Irish … Continue reading Introducing: Raglans
