The Return Of Songs In The Key Of: A

November 26, 2014


Doing a bit of blog archaeology recently reminded me of an occasional feature that I used to throw out in the hope of sharing a few music suggestions (without putting in the effort of actually writing a review or anything). It’s a snapshot of what happens to be in my musical sphere on any given […]

The explosion of stuff

March 26, 2014


…and suddenly you look around and realise that there is so much stuff going on that you’ve almost no time to tell people about it. So, to rectify that, here’s a  rundown of what’s happening with the music and the writing and a few other bits and bobs. De Saw and Finkle have had a busy […]

Back in the park

July 14, 2013

RSD with free beer

April 20, 2013


Managed out to Glasgow’s excellent Love Music for a couple of hours to celebrate Record Store Day 2013.  Bought some CDs, stayed in store to watch Fake Major and Woodenbox, bought some more CDs, and came away with some beer too. The beer is quite interesting. As a RSD experiment music blogger, Song By Toad, […]
