2021 – Cosmosis

February 7th, 2022 · Comments Off on 2021 – Cosmosis · Music

Well. 2021 was another year of not going out much wasn’t it? Another year of (mostly) working from home, and then staying at home afterwards. There was fresh air of course, as I was getting out for regular walks and shattering the 10,000 step target on good days – though a lot less for a […]

King Bastard

January 15th, 2022 · Comments Off on King Bastard · Music

They say that you can’t or shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, but what about records? If the front cover has a picture of a skull in a space helmet, a band name of King Bastard above an album name of It came from the void and the back shows a track listing that […]

Irony narrowly averted

March 3rd, 2021 · Comments Off on Irony narrowly averted · Life

I went for a walk today, which is quite a big deal for me because I haven’t been able to really appreciate a long walk for ages until the last few days. Its all to do with Raynaud’s phenomenon, which makes my fingers go white when its cold. Oh, and paradoxically they go numb and […]

2020 – Automation

January 2nd, 2021 · Comments Off on 2020 – Automation · Music

It is that time of the year again. The time when I add another track to my Spotify playlist, the one that has one song for every year I have been around. I have now added a 59th track to it, which makes me fell a bit old. While this might have been a bit […]

Passing the time in lockdown

April 8th, 2020 · Comments Off on Passing the time in lockdown · Life, Music

Some people are spending this period of lockdown being very creative, learning a new skill, taking up a new hobby, or catching up on books and TV they never quite had the time for previously. Others are bored stiff and looking for something to do. But some of us are fortunate (?) enough that they […]

2019 Wrapped. A few surprises

December 7th, 2019 · Comments Off on 2019 Wrapped. A few surprises · Music

Spotify have this ‘wrapped’ feature where they tell you what your most listened to songs and artists are for the year. A bit premature when there is nearly a twelfth of the year left, but it is what it is. My bedtime habits do rather influence the results though. I have 30 or so playlists […]

1987 – Pump Up the Volume

February 22nd, 2019 · Comments Off on 1987 – Pump Up the Volume · Music

Another year and still the music was a bit naff, but with some signs of  life and items of interest to point out while waiting eagerly for the 90’s to arrive.

All Killer – Original Pirate Material (2002)

February 17th, 2019 · Comments Off on All Killer – Original Pirate Material (2002) · Music

Well this is a bit recent for me. When it came out I was nearly 40 and so I should be too old for it, but I picked it up at the market in Lower Marsh one lunchtime and when I put it on the stereo that evening I could not do anything until it […]

1981 – Spellbound

February 17th, 2019 · Comments Off on 1981 – Spellbound · Music

Although I enjoyed the 80’s at the time, I don’t enjoy looking back on them as much as the 70’s. Maybe I should make more of an effort. As far as music was concerned, there was a lot of good stuff, even if a lot of it was quite superficial and 1981 was no exception. […]

1973 – Living For The City

February 10th, 2019 · Comments Off on 1973 – Living For The City · Music

What a year 1973 was for music, but then so were all years in the 1970’s really. For a start it was a great year for glam rock, with great tunes from Suzi Quatro (Can the Can & 48 Crash), T. Rex (20th Century Boy), Sweet (Ballroom Blitz and Blockbuster), Slade (Cum on Feel the […]
