Single of the Week – Anthem for the North – Joe Astley

Anthems, seem easy enough to write. Big choruses, guitars, loud vocals. That kinda thing. Simples. Except they aren't. If they were we'd all being doing it. Songs that make drunk middle aged men grab their mates and tell them they love them are few and far between nowadays. Noel probably wrote most of them anyway … Continue reading Single of the Week – Anthem for the North – Joe Astley

New Artist/New Music – Teenage Waitress

Sometimes you just get snowed under with the amount of music out there and to listen too. I hear a lot of similar sounding music and trying to find the best is sometimes a tricky task. Its fun of course and ultimately rewarding, but what I like is when a track jumps out at you, … Continue reading New Artist/New Music – Teenage Waitress

Single of the week – The Rosadocs – Say Something

It seems that Yorkshire is a rich haven for talent at the moment - as well as having great tea. The Rosadocs are another new band that you may not heard of, a 4 piece hailing from Sheffield. They have been around since 2017 releasing songs, gigging and getting better all the time. I have … Continue reading Single of the week – The Rosadocs – Say Something

The Artists and The Music – My First Blogging Month

So its been one month already since I started this Blog and what a whirlwind. I have been completely taken away with the positive response it has had and its completely exceeded my expectations. I've been able to connect to so many interesting people - bands/artists/bloggers/influencers/comedians and all round good eggs. At times its been … Continue reading The Artists and The Music – My First Blogging Month

Album review – Finer Times in Other Worlds – Crimson Bloom

Ah the difficult second album - something of a legend in music or is it just a myth? Whilst some bands release such a magnificent first album its almost impossible to follow (The Stones Roses), other bands take it in their stride (Oasis), some release an even better album after a dodgy start (Blur, Radiohead). … Continue reading Album review – Finer Times in Other Worlds – Crimson Bloom

Album review – The Tides of Time – The Mariners

So it's clear these rapskallions are my favourite new band at the minute and I've been looking forward to their album ever since I first heard them in the Spring. For me they are your archtypal British group, formed from the same magic as the best of the 60s. However you chuck in a large … Continue reading Album review – The Tides of Time – The Mariners

Single of the week – Connected – Crimson Bloom

It's fair to say that each week picking a SOTW is tough, but this week in a week of great releases one track stood head and shoulders above the rest. Connected is a cover, a cover of a well known dance/rap song from early 90s Brit rappers Stereo MCs. A brave choice, foolhardy some would … Continue reading Single of the week – Connected – Crimson Bloom
