Ye Olde Supernovas

  • 9th June 2008

Theres nothing like playing an impromptu gig. Especially after only one rehearsal. Last week I was drafted in by Alba Nova to add some cello love. I heard of Alba Nova as they formed at Durham University (formerly the University of Durham which sounds much better) where I studied, but…

Love, Money and Murder make us Happy

  • 27th May 2008

The internet has smashed our attention spans to pieces. We spend less time focusing on one band and instead skim from one MySpace page to the next. I picked up that habit, but still make sure to buy as many albums as Mr Mastercard can afford. They’re the only way…

  • 29th April 2008

I have fallen in love with Elbow’s Grounds for Divorce. Probably the best guitar-lick ever. Elbow’s album The Seldom Seen Kid makes me think of Coldplay, if they were actually good. They could challenge for the best British band, and actually take the mantle so many of Elbow’s fans feel…

Like a Bird

  • 29th April 2008

Violinist and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird from Chicago seems to have quite a following in the US, and rightly so. He’s playing at IndigO2 (the dome) on 26 April, and will do my best to get to it. In fact give me a shout if you want to come a long!…
