Never understood the problem some of my former colleagues had in discovering cool (great) (fresh) (exemplary) (entertaining) fine new music. You go on Facebook, boldly ask ‘friends’ to “recommend me some music” and within a few minutes your Facebook feed is awash with a miasma of eccentric and charming and noisy and heavy and intoxicating (great) (fresh) (exemplary) (entertaining) […]
I’m not Neil Young. There are many reasons for this, not the least of which is that when I sing I don’t sound like a cranky Kermit the Frog. Also, I can’t fucking play electric guitar or manipulate feedback to save a noisy miner. But whatever. If I was Neil Young – and I so […]
It’s cold up here. Cold and scary. Not outside. Inside. Inside my head. Listening to music like this makes me feel better. I don’t often listen to music these days. Too dark. Too cold. Listening to music like this makes me feel better, sparks associations, make me think fleetingly of catching cabs through Manhattan drunk, […]
Just got to step into the distant past – 2012 – for a few moments here. Sometimes, shit is so good, you just gotta tell folk = no matter how far behind the timez. Damn. Goddddddamn. That’s it. End of post. Here’s yr other tip. It’s the same person, different persona.

OMG, this is so amazeballs! Just give it 10 seconds, that’s all I ask. And then give it 10 hours. I’d never made the connection between Miley Cyrus and The Residents before.
You hear stuff. And sometimes you hear stuff and it resonates. You don’t write stuff like this though. Strips the process of its magic, its allure. Adds maggots where none are asked for. I think I mean maggots. What’s the first question? Does it rock? Yes, it rocks. What’s the second question? Does it pass […]
One more from the source. I’m whistling soundlessly in the dark here, aren’t I? The mix tape I keep dreaming of doesn’t exist. I know I could create my own. That’s not the point, is it? Here’s the link to the music. Beautiful and… just whistling soundlessly. There’s more. There’s always more. Aren’t you glad […]
It takes me a while to get round to listening to stuff, y’ understand? Especially when bands seem to compete to find the most anonymous name around, like they should be embarrassed about what they do. After all, it’s only music. Not a real job. This song. Well, they had me from the opening 2 seconds, […]
