After releasing one of my favourite albums of 2020 with the Wonky Psychedelic Pop of Love & Chemicals plus also doing a few gigs (one of which was for me πŸ˜ƒ) Mr Teenage Waitress or Dan to his friends has been a bit quiet. Beavering away working on album two, he has only released a … Continue reading Single Review – Teenage Waitress – Pretty Little Baby

Single Review – The Shed Project – My Life

Featured

I make no apologies for writing again about The Shed Project. When a band or artist continues to raise their own bar, repeatedly with each release or each decision they make, it needs to be documented and it needs to be shared. So, without sounding sycophantic, the Sheds have done it again and this might … Continue reading Single Review – The Shed Project – My Life

Hot Track of The Week – The Shed Project – Feel My Love

Featured

Every new music scene always has a few bands that totally represent the fans, the masses, the community that supports them. They defy the snobbish music industry and their packaged and carefully marketed acts. They aren't forced on us. They are chosen by US. Bands like The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, Oasis all chosen to … Continue reading Hot Track of The Week – The Shed Project – Feel My Love

Joe Astley – Television Fantasy – Pre-release Review

So, what makes a pop star nowadays? The looks, the style, the voice, the songs. Same as it ever was, I guess. But it doesn't have to be prefabricated, created on a reality show, groomed, and polished and the soul sucked out of it. It can be cool, and real, relatable but still be all … Continue reading Joe Astley – Television Fantasy – Pre-release Review

The Rebirth Of Cool Hot List 3

The thing about hot lists, is that as soon as you finish one, you gotta do another straight away. Its like a never ending episode of TOTP - I'm very obsessed with TOTP'90 at the minute - great seeing again Indie taking over the Pops studio. Anyway focus Tanner. So flying out of the blocks … Continue reading The Rebirth Of Cool Hot List 3

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

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
