Bought a new car, pretty good; it has speakers and a CD but, horror of horrors, it’ll only play ‘Shop Bought’ CDs, thus, ruining my life. Did Citreon have some kind of deal with the record company scum? Anyway, I’ve had to go and find albums that I like all the way...
I've been writing dance music for over 20 years now - I'm currently using reason for the pc - but I play piano, so quite often- just me and the four track cassette recorder, have a lil one to one- play a few chords - add a lil beat, and some bass, and a soothing melody - mmmmmmh...
so here are some of my favorite bands
falling in reverse
the sisters if mercy
motionless in white
the dresden dolls
dead can dance
It just calms me down from any depressing situation. I listen to rap but I know 3 rappers and their music is just AMAZING.
I listened to a lot of female voices when I was younger, mostly because of my sister. She was obsessed with Beyoncé back in like 2007. There use to be...
the weekend, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, jhene aiko, flume, Ed sheeran, Sam smith, Trey songz (only his R&B), majid Jordan, jack ü, martin garrix, frank Sinatra, hoizer, g-eazy, childish gambino, odesza, the hics,... I'm varied in taste
It's always good to hear something new(ish) that makes me want to wave my arms in the air and cry at the same time. Drum n Bass, a life affirming message...I don't know what's wrong with me.This track kicks arse, big time.
Had an urge. My most favourite song, ever.
When Scott sings
Scott Walker plays the Bradford Odeon, it’s 1966; he’d recently gone solo after a string of Walker Brothers’ hits. There are queues around the corner and for the Ladies, and at the bar. All of the...
the gym, but "Shots-broiler remix" by Imagine Dragons was playing full blast in my ears. I didn't noticed him until he got in my face for a handshake! If I'm listening to music, chances are that I'll just ignore you by accident! 😝😝😝😝
Billy just got a Folk Award and was being interviewed. He disclosed how he'd felt when he found out that George Osborne (the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Conservative Fascist) was a big fan. Billy Bragg, Hats Off, what a bloke.
Wooing me with tales of bar singers and the debauched sips of Dubonnet, the Lou Reed album ‘Berlin’ always lures me in. The arrangements are (mostly) a joy and the songs poignant. He’s always clumsy making social statements but once he gets into the interpersonal he...
This album builds with tension. Starting with some cut up prog-rock samples, through a few fantastic pop songs (including 'timed' handclaps and Ghostbusters-type synth choruses), it moves through moods and emotions until ending with a blast of blistering techno...
Should say about today. Great right now, 10 minutes after my cannabis score, grim before. Went to bed without any last night. It’s been 89 hours, 34 minutes, and 3 seconds since my last tobacco. Not that I’m counting. Got some Health Shop smoking mixture for spliffs...
I once wrote a poem reminiscing about sitting in a pub on my own, lovelost, drinking and smoking heavily, whilst listening to this song on the jukebox. So, on the day of Mr Williams’s very sad demise, this is about as miserable as it gets.
