Getting to know you – Leigh Thomas
I first heard of Leigh thanks to an In Your Ears Takeover by Nunny Boy - he called him the housewives favourite from Australia. Immediately I could see and importantly hear why.

Single Review – Minerva Daisy – Wildfire
The art of good pop music is making a song that sounds relevant and contemporary but also harks back to what has came before and gives you a little sense of nostalgia of music you heard as a kid or a teenager, oh and to ideally wrap it all up in 3 mins of musical … Continue reading Single Review – Minerva Daisy – Wildfire
The Shed Project – The Curious Mind Of A Common Man – Album Review
Was it Noel Gallagher that wrote on Fade Away. While we're livingThe dreams we have as children fade away.

Brits n Pieces III – Album Review
Three is a magic number! Three is seen as a lucky number amongst owners of Mini Cooper's from the 1960's because it represents the 3 used in the classic Michael Caine Film The Italian Job. This may not actually be true but I'd like to think it is. What is true though is that Marc … Continue reading Brits n Pieces III – Album Review
The Skinner Brothers – The Real Peaky Blinders
Zac Skinner with his peaky hat, lank curly hair, looking like he is coming down or coming back up is like a modern day Artful Dodger. He looks like nothing else around at the moment!

Soundtrack of the year – Pocket Lint – Themes for Silcaville
Late summer and a strange oblong object drops through my door, something that looks like its from the past but also futuristic in its look. What was this baby blue in colour piece of plastic, wrapped in cardboard with a cover of a night-time cityscape? Was it some form of secret message that only a … Continue reading Soundtrack of the year – Pocket Lint – Themes for Silcaville
