Old tunes

January 17th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Jane, Music

While I was in town to get my eyes seen to I did some browsing.  I had a little time to kill before my appointment, and then more time afterwards while waiting for Jayne to finish work and come down to help me choose frames.  (I don’t really care what glasses look like: I only […]

Rock The Casbah

November 11th, 2008 · Comments Off on Rock The Casbah · Music

From Wikipedia’s entry on Punk Rock: Punk rock (often referred to simply as punk) is a rock music genre that developed between 1974 and 1976 in the United States, the United Kingdom, Bahrain, and Australia. Rooted in garage rock and other forms of what is now known as protopunk music, punk rock bands eschewed the […]

I wanna be sedated

June 22nd, 2008 · 1 Comment · Music

The Ramones have been described in many ways, but I wonder if the best word to sum them up would be “aspirational”?  For reasons we don’t need to go into now, I was looking through the track listings of their albums and was struck by the number of song titles that say “I wanna” in […]

Another attempt at posting a youtube clip of Crawley’s favourite band. The first test really screwed up the page format!

Report from the Pistols’ front line

November 20th, 2007 · Comments Off on Report from the Pistols’ front line · Music

I got a slightly miffed e-mail from Spizz today.  He tried to leave a comment here but it kept being rejected as spam.  I'm guessing it was because of all the links in it – anything with more than 2 links is assumed to be spam. Rather than turning off security for a while I […]

Spizzenergi v Sex Pistols

September 21st, 2007 · 4 Comments · Music

The Sex Pistols are playing at the Brixton Academy on November 8th. I toyed with the idea of trying to get tickets in the 5 minutes between them going on sale and all selling out tomorrow morning, but I think that £37.50 is a bit steep, even before you add on all the spurious booking […]

Shameless plug

April 6th, 2006 · Comments Off on Shameless plug · Music

Last night I downloaded the new World Cup song from Spizzenergi, and I have had it playing on constant rotation here ever since.  Well worth a download (or buy the CD with a T-shirt from eBay) It starts off with a sort of Beatles/Jam vibe, like a cross between Taxman and Start!, and has a […]

Full to the brim

July 27th, 2005 · Comments Off on Full to the brim · Music, Technology

Oh dear. My iRiver is finally full – there is only 3Mb of space left on the disk. If I want to get some more of my vinyl on there, or buy anything new, I will have to start deleting stuff, because my budget doesn’t stretch to getting a 40Gb model just yet. I already […]
