    Just a quick one today, this time from the recently defunct band Page France. Chariot (Low Quality D/L) (High Quality Stream)       ...

    on Dec 16, 2008 in M.I.A. Aurlar Pull Up The People
    I’ve not been posting much lately. That’s because I’ve been over in London drinking beer that cost £2.40 and eating salted peanuts that cost even less. And while wandering around the dinky little music shops in Soho, I began
  • ESG1978 was a interesting year for many people. The first test tube baby was born, and so was I, Larry Flint got shot, space invaders was developed and Charlie Chaplin - or at least his corpse - was dug up, spirited away (i.e. robbed) and held for ranso...
  • The New PornographersAs songs go, Challengers by The New Pornographers has to rank as one of my favourites. From the first thunk of the rhythm guitar to the rich swell of Neko Case’s voice, it’s all about burgeoning love and  forbidden assignations, and l

  • Crystal CastlesJust a quick one today. The porridge of bleeps, blips and distorted vocals (caused by all manner of button bashing and knob twiddling) found on the self titled album from the Crystal Castles may not be to everyone’s taste, but it’s an
  • Palin 2012Half a bag of pistachios poured into a bowl. Another bowl beside - empty this time - waiting patiently for shells. A cup of  tea  on the brew. Boom! Let’s do this post! Most people in Ireland, including myself, seemed to have a soft spot for..
