It's not all about music anymore...



Free is the magic number…

Until the start of last year, I used to be a bit of an enforced big-gig goer. When I say “enforced”, it wasn’t that I didn’t want to go to them, it was more that I couldn’t find anyone to… Continue Reading →

Phantogram – When I’m Small

Another one from the WAH emerging playlist – I hadn’t heard of them until the playlist but a bit of digging has revealed that another of my current favourite bands, Post War Years, are supporting them in Bristol this coming… Continue Reading →

The Voluntary Butler Scheme – Trading Things In
