I Will Survive

What is it with the BBC at the moment? I try to spend an evening listening to music and browsing the ‘net and there are good TV programmes all over the place. On top of ‘Apparitions’ and ‘Spooks’ I’m going to have to add the new series, ‘Survivors‘ which started on BBC1 tonight. This is […]

Ladytron Live


Another night, another gig, this time Ladytron at Shepherd’s Bush Empire yesterday evening. Ladytron are a bit outside my normal musical tastes, although I did fall in love with Modern Talking a few years ago – the nearest thing to them in my musical collection. They’re an electro-pop band of Glaswegian/Bulgarian extraction, and their music […]

Whilst I find it […]

Aye Aye Cap’n!

No, not another Star Trek post – I want to tell you about a fantastic band I saw last night at the historic 100 Club on Oxford St – Dark Captain Light Captain. To use a metaphor to describe their sound, imagine two trains hurtling towards each other on a single track, on one side […]

21st Century Prez

You’ll have noticed, if you’re into these things, that the President elect has used every trick in the online space to promote himself. For example, he’s the most followed person on Twitter, with nearly 130,000 followers and he’s also used a blog, youtube videos and other devices to get his messages across. I’m quite surprised […]
