I went to live in Huddersfield when I was 17, away at this music place. I’d lived in the county pretty much all my life so when I first moved to this industrial heartland of years gone by it was a little bit daunting, with its mills and canals and expanses of terraced housing in …

So the retirement didn’t last as long as you’d think(you’d think retirement lasts forever, at least in my neck of the woods it does).  We’re the better for it if “Came Back Haunted” is any indication as to what NIN 2.0 is offering.  This song seems to encapsulate all the best bits of every NIN …

  We’ve met Joel Compass before. Not in a literal sense of course, I was just searching for a new way of saying I’d written about him. He’s one of that new generation of soulful RnB singers with a (you can tell I’ve been doing this writing thing for a while when I say this) …

But there again, Lewis Watson himself is quickly going beyond …

I almost missed this. Such is the state of my inbox at the moment that I’m desperately trying to keep somewhere in touch with, that this for several days, passed me by. Until last night when I listened to the single Kingmaker. And listened again. and then again. I’m still listening to it now in …

Been in our thoughts a bit this week, Munich has. Even before Robben sealed it for Bayern just before the end of the Champions League Final. And that was mainly down to a singer-songwriter based in that city, Josef Wirnshofer, who writes and records under the name The Marble Man. Releasing his first album in …

There’s two things that I’ve always been good at. One is dreaming, and I often think that maybe now that I’m a proper grown up, with children and everything, I’m possibly too old for dreaming, but I don’t seem to be able to stop. So every time I kick a ball it’s Wembley and I’m …

There’s this sort of rule that when you talk about Switzerland, you have to mention things like mountains and Cuckoo clocks, watches  and chocolate and the like. Musically, there is sort of Alp horns and yodeling and things. I’m sure that if I were Swiss, I would be thoroughly sick of these sort of lazy …
