I seem to have been to Australia on a few occasions. Its lovely, and my favourite place has always been Sydney. The capital city always seems to have more things going on, feels more bohemian, seems so much prettier. I walked up to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge one (a difficult task since …

I’ll be flying to the channel Islands this summer. More specifically Alderney, I tend to go there every summer. Let me tell you its a beautiful Island, quaint but with a lot going on, beautiful and remote. But I hate flying, with a passion. The first time I went, in order to avoid these little …

My mate once won tickets to a band on Manchester’s GLR. That band was Suicidal Tendancies, they of legendary hardcore metal infamy (they were promoting the track ‘Feel like shit, de ja vu, at the time) I sort of knew this, but when I raised this with said mate, he said they were like the …

I think its fair to say that if this new video from Joel Compass is even remotely true to life, me and him live very different lives. Quite often, me and my younger brother used to have to go to work with my Dad on a Saturday morning. He worked in a large garage in …

Imagine this. Born in dour post war Sheffield, you join one of pop histories most experimental bands while still in your early 20s.

This involved some tears, a couple of ill-advised abusive text messages, nurofen and a lot of wine. It also involved much skipping on my MP3 …

You know what they say about dogs being like their owners, well that was the same for music students where I went to University, and I suspect it was (and is) the same everywhere. There was us, the brass players. Loud, brash, heavy drinking animals who arrived in college purely to find people to go …

I always loved cartoons. In my day growing up it was a mixture of things. From the  funny ones, like Tom and Jerry and Roadrunner (I embarrassingly still laugh out loud at that) to the more serious, you know Ulysses and Battle of the Planets, Dungeons and Dragons to the more wholesome message of He-Man. …

Here it is then*, the album you have all been waiting for: Foreign Talks‘ debut LP. The Portland, Oregon four-piece have delivered a tight, 10-song set that barely breaks 30 minutes in length. Replete with deft instrumentation, four-part harmonies, spacious production that transports us into the breezy open-air, and copious confidence, this is a compelling …
