Sonic BOOM

Every now and then a song comes up on shuffle to remind me that, once upon a time, I tried my hand at making some music. An entirely amateur attempt it basically boiled down to being obsessed with fiddling on…

Ghostown : Reflectionz

Ghostown – Reflectionz (Jamendo) How cutting edge am I? Discovering and reviewing albums released a mere 7 months ago, trend setter me, a latter day John Peel. Anyway, Reflectionz is an albums worth of eclectic Hip Hop which does eccentric as…

The Wagner Logic : Easiest to Grab

The Hardtits – Demo 2008 (Jamendo) The Hardtits… Jazz, Punk, Rock, Ska and an excellent, if slightly random, name for your average English listener. Theoretically there’s absolutely nothing to dislike here, except perhaps the Jazz but even that could be forgiven…
