Live! – Belly @ Ritz, Manchester, 17 July 2016

Reprinted with permission from Toby Goodwin of musicgigsnthings. It was over twenty-three years ago that I first saw Belly live. To be exact it was Saturday 13th February 1993.

The return of Everett True | 8. Makthaverskan

The return of Everett True | 8. Makthaverskan

All music reminds me of the past. How can it not? The comments underneath this clip of music mention variously The Cure, Nirvana, The Cranberries, punk, post-punk, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, jangle pop… and I will throw in a guess at them being Scandinavian, probably with a couple of boy members. This goes to […]

the song I hate more than any song ever


Warning: Undefined array key 0 in /homepages/7/d309872558/htdocs/wp-content/themes/patterns/framework/functions/gabfire-media.php on line 48

Song of the day – 196: The Cheapmunks

A female pop group from Pakistan covering ‘Say My Name’ by Destiny’s Child, mashed up with popular Indian movie song ‘O Humdum Suniyo Re’ by A.R. Rahman (the music director of Slumdog Millionaire), with some killer tabla backing. Most of The Cheapmunks’ music seems to be a fusion between Hindi and English pop songs. It’s […]
