Goodbye London!

Nope, sorry to burst your bubble, I’m not going anywhere 😉 “Goodbye London” is the title of a delightful new song by Luke Jackson, with accompanying graphics and direction by Murray John, that’s doing the rounds on YouTube at the moment. It’s lovely – really joyful and sad at the same time, and watching it […]

Aching Teeth

To fill up the weekend, I picked up some tickets to go to a gig while D and I were in Bristol – Teeth Mountain performing at the Cube Microplex. It took us ages to find this strange little venue – half lecture theatre-half garden shed, we finally discovered it halfway up the hill towards […]

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 […]

What are Words Worth?


Friday saw another visit to Massive Attack’s Meltdown, this time to see Tom Tom Club and the Gang of Four at the Royal Festival Hall. Tom Tom Club were on top form, performing their big hit, ‘Wordy Rappinghood’ and also in their set was a version of Hot Chocolate’s ‘Sexy Thing’. They were very energetic […]

More Than OK Cowboys

I went to see the Fleet Foxes and their support, Beach House, at the University of London (ULU) this evening. Fleet Foxes are really difficult to define – a five-piece band from Seattle (although given their beardy image you’d be forgiven for thinking that they’re from some Tenessee backwater) their vocal style is similar in […]
