  • New year, new music

    My Lastfm account and I have quite a close bond, in fact, according to my profile page Lastfm has played me over 1729 songs! What a mate. I’ve discovered lots of indie rock bands, budding solo artists, and emo ballets, but my latest finds have not been through Lastfm, but through Facebook. Andrew Schär The […]

  • Neon Bible interactive video

    One of my favourite bands at the moment, Arcade Fire, have just released a jaw droppingly brilliant interactive online video to advertise their latest album Neon Bible. It will take a little time to load, especially for you South Africans, but it is well worth the wait. Make sure you click all over the place […]

  • The Glastonbury 2007 Experience

    Best weekend ever. It certainly was. By a long shot. Glastonbury 2007 is hard to sum up in words. It is too much of an emotionally charged experience. Instead of attempting to describe it, as I am sure I will not do it justice, I have made a couple lists and linked to lots of […]

  • Festival Time

    It’s a great time to be in London if you are a music lover. It’s summer time which means music festival time. This last weekend I managed to get a free day ticket to the O2 Wireless Festival. My ticket was valid for the Sunday which was the “Indie Rock” day. This meant I got […]

  • Thursday Tunes

    Over the past few weeks, submerged in photoshop work, I have managed to find a few great indie tracks lurking around Myspace. SO without further ado i present to you my “Thursday Tunes” (yeah I know it doesn’t rhymes, but there is some basic alliteration in there). Simply click on the song title, surf over […]

  • Hate him, not me

    I stumbled upon this great tune earlier today called “Hate Me”, it’s by some Texas blokes called Blue October. The singer is pretty emo, definitely angry with someone, but if you can get past that you might enjoy the tune as much as i do.

    I’ve been keeping a close eye on a couple mate’s band back in Cape Town. Their name is “The Brothers Streep”. “The brothers’ streep are an acoustic duo combining imaginative, humorous, and often just simply random song writing, with impressive harmonies and catchy melodies. they are a band that are primarily interested in sharing their […]

  • Goo Goo Dolls @ Shepherd’s Bush Empire Theatre

    Last night I graced Goo Goo Dolls with my presence. They seemed pretty stoked I was there, John Rzeznik kept yelling, “We love you guys“. What an awesome concert! The beauty of the Empire Theatre is it’s size. It is pretty small, so it feels quite personal. Not like the Robbie Williams concert I went […]

  • While my guitar gently weeps

    I’ve just downloaded a video quicktag plugin that allows you to post YouTube, Googe Videos, WMV and MPEG files into your blog posts. The bonus of this plugin is that your post code remains completely XHTML vaild code. Anyways enough about that. I downloaded this plugin specifically for this video clip, it’s that good! Have […]

  • Incredibly cheap MP3s

    I recently heard of a Russian MP3 download site, www.allofmp3.com, that sells mp3s dirt cheap, and apparently it is all completely legal. When I say cheap I mean $1.49 cheap, for an entire CD, thats like 10 rand a pop. The question I have for you all is this: Has anyone bought any MP3s from […]
