October and November Favourites and Musings

Sometimes I feel like time is whirling by so quickly that I just can’t get a grip and in my lower moments often need to remind myself that today is the best I’m ever going to be. I’ve had the occasional sleepless night reading about […]

Radiohead released OKNOTOK 1997 2017 their 20th anniversary edition of OK Computer this year with songs from the original recordings that didn’t make the album. So yesterday another old / new track got the video treatment. It’s a little strange hearing something that essentially documents […]

Prince : Best Album Covers Through The Ages

I couldn’t write anything about Prince on Thursday night but I’ve been having a Princeathon the past few days and remembering the intense obsession I had with his music in the 80’s. Particularly his golden run from Purple Rain, Pop Life, Parade, Sign O The Times to Lovesexy. Pure purple […]
