The thoughts and ocassional ramblings of a 30-something muso.
Hello, I’m a muso. I'm one of those guys you see digging around the racks of vinyl in London's backstreet record shops. I'm not addicted, I can give it up whenever I want. I just need to find that limited edition 7" single that the NME made single of the week. Maybe you've bumped into me in the queue for the bar at The Academy or The Astoria. There are thousands of us in London - I've seen all the regular faces in the record shops and at the gigs.

This blog is my attempt to write about the records that I love, the gigs I've been to and, well, anything else to do with music. Hopefully you'll find something here that makes you nod in agreement or rant in disagreement or maybe even laugh.

Christ On A Bike
OK... so I know the Brits is the music awards ceremony for people who only buy one record a year (hence KT Tunstall and James Blunt-ne-Blant getting gongs)

What's made me angry this evening is the BBC News at 10's coverage - could it's explination of the rise of "guitar bands" be any more patronising ? They write songs (never) and play guitars (hence the name granny) and have made songs available on the internet for fans (shock!). I know, I know, the Beeb is stuffy and I shouldn't complain but tonights piece was possible the laziest piece of journalism I've seen for a long time.
