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.

Hard-Fi : Could Do Better
It wasn't that last nights show by Hard-Fi at Brixton was bad, it's just we know they can do better. My main complaint was the sound - everything sounded tiney especially Richard's mic, making him sound as though he had been breathing Helium in between delivering lyrics. Not good at all.

I suppose the sight and sound of Hard-fi hammering ham-fistedly through Town Called Malice with Paul Weller (looking more like Mani with every year that goes by).

Possibly the best part of the evening was the support set from Billy Bragg, who appeals to men of a certain age. I'm pleased to say that after 30 years of being angry Billy is still angry, so everything is OK with the world.

Domonic Masters On A Night Bus
It would now appear that Domonic Masters, frontman of The Others (who I believe are still without a record deal after being dropped last year) has taken to riding around on late night buses trying to get noticed. We spotted him on an N7 from Ealing to Holborn in the wee hours of last Friday night and bless him he was so suprised to get noticed he almost jumped out of his skin.
