  • 23rd September 2010

Choirs conjure up a tirade of stereotypes, usually involving grey hair and cups of 50p tea served in polystyrene.  As a member of London Philharmonic Choir my liver can certainly prove we drink more Stella than PG Tips. Gaggle, the female alternative choir from London, are legions apart from crusty old…

Everything Everything Keep the Sound Man Alive

  • 25th August 2010

Sound men at music venues have to listen to so much shit that alongside my sympathy for them I always wonder how aural torture affects their tastes. I’d say they either: Detune their standards until Jedward sound like Marvin Gaye reincarnate. Can pick a cherry from a turdy fog but…

Mines by Menomena – Many Milliseconds of Aural Pleasure

  • 20th August 2010

Portland experimental rockers Menomena have released their new album Mines. It’s absolutely spell-binding.

Frame the City not its Museum

  • 6th August 2010

Going to Seattle? Don’t go to the music museum. It’s shite. Do eat seafood, rent a boat with fishing rods or take a short drive past evergreen forests for a trip to Microsoft town. Other than the museum I struggle to come up with a reason why you wouldn’t visit Seattle –…
