Some 70s LA punk to kick off your week

Some 70s LA punk to kick off your week

I’ve been really getting into (well, back into in some cases) 70s US west coast punk over the last few months. It all kicked off when I read Lexicon Devil: The Short Life and Fast Times of Darby Crash and The Germs (Amazon link) earlier this year. There were so many bands mentioned that I’d … Continue reading

What? A podcast…no, really.

What? A podcast…no, really.

It’s so cold and miserable out there, so I thought I’d share a summery podcast with you. Well, it’s kinda summery anyway. It’s been over a year since my last one, so I thought it was about time really. It’s very guitary and quite shouty in bits. Some old classics, mixed with some new favorites … Continue reading

An warm, knitted autumn podcast

An warm, knitted autumn podcast

Autumn. Love it or hate it…or maybe love it AND hate it. For every fluffy pile of leaves to jump in there’s soggy shoes and giant spiders.

Another Monday, another podcast

Four more long days until the weekend. I thought I’d share some songs with you in the hope that they will make your week go faster.

Still Popfesting

Still Popfesting

The Smittens last night….definitely the highlight of the day. I’m too tired to write anything else. It was fun, but nowhere near as amazing as Friday (or Thursday even). There was a mix-CD swap thing going on, but I didn’t have a any blank CD’s left and couldn’t burn mine. This is what it looked … Continue reading
