Yet Another Catch Up, featuring Liam Gallagher, Marilyn Manson, Margo Price, Barenaked Ladies

It's yet another catch up for the blog! However, following a hectic work schedule and a short illness, I now have time to get back to my blog, so we have a massive catch up which is possibly the last one of the year as December is relatively quiet (N*E*R*D aside) and I hope to have my...

22/09 and 29/09/2017 Album releases – Black Country Communion, Reverend & the Makers and Primus

What do you get if you cross the son of one of rock's all time greatest drummers, a former Deep Purple and Black Sabbath frontman, Alice Cooper's keyboardist and 00s blues guitar god Joe Bonamassa? The answer is this week's first review, classic rock supergroup Black Country Communion who have released their fourth album BCCIV. It should... Continue Reading →

It’s Been a While! (Part 2)

Following my last blog, here is part 2 of my massive catch up! As before I'm trying to keep everything brief so I can get through it all, then hopefully next week I can go back to my "2-3 full reviews a week" format. Chris Robinson Brotherhood have mellowed slightly from previous efforts but Barefoot in... Continue Reading →


Music Blog – It’s been a while! Part 1

The last few months have been hectic, which means I've had no time to write. I now have some extra time and so this blog is the first part of a massive catch up of all the music I've listened to since my last bog back in May, taking us up to 7 July! I'll... Continue Reading →


Music Blog – 21/04/2017 and 28/04/2017(part 1) Black Angels, BNQT and Ryan Adams album Reviews, Descendants single Review

The 21st was a quiet week for releases again so I thought I'd include the Black Angels in my 28th April blog. However I've also been struggling for time this week, and obsessed with the Ryan Adams B-Sides, so this blog is a "28th April part 1", with Thurston Moore and Life of Agony to... Continue Reading →


Music Blog – 7/04/2017 and 14/04/2017 Releases – The New Pornographers, John Mayer and The Barenaked Ladies with the Persuasions

Due to WordPress losing my last Brew blog, and having no spare time due to selling a load of vinyl on eBay, it's a double whammy catch up this week, a couple of days later than usual.  I've also omitted a couple of records I listened to, namely Aussie punk rockers The Smith Street Band...

BrewBlog 2 – Brewday from Hell, IPA from Heaven, and First use of Mangrove Jacks M44 yeast.

This, my second post about brewing, all started on 11th March with a slightly altered version of Greg Hughes' American IPA. I'm quite fussy about my IPAs, I find a lot of commercial examples prioritise bitterness over flavour and aroma but in experienced enough at both tasting and brewing to know what I do like,...

Music Blog – 31/03/2017 Releases – Body Count and Aimee Mann album reviews

I've had terrible writer's block this week. It's probably, in part, due to having to go through two 250+ page documents in detail at work, but I've also found it incredibly difficult to write about these two albums because they are so close to being perfect. In fact, numerous times I thought of deleting everything and simply saying "These records are awesome!", but...

Music Blog – 24/03/2017 Releases – Steel Panther, Creeper, Me And That Man and Samantha Crain album reviews

Those of you who are familiar with Steel Panther should know exactly what to expect from their new album, Lower The Bar - big, overblown, 80s-style hard rock parodying the 1980s parties, drugs and groupies LA hair metal scene. This album is no different. Even before pressing play for the first time, the artwork and tracklisting ("Goin... Continue Reading →
