So, I guess I got to make some space…

I realised that I haven’t posted anything in a while.  I’ve just been a bit busy with some other stuff and I just can’t seem to find the time, or motivation, to get around to writing something here.  Truth be told, I’ve wondered whether or not just to quit posting, as I’d still feel part…

“a shambolic teenage riot”

Sleepyhouse was my first proper band.  We were, as one of our friends put it, “a shambolic teenage riot”.  We were barely proficient with our instruments, with three of us playing ‘seriously’ (I use that term loosely) for a matter of months, while our drummer, Adam, was a very talented guitarist.  As shambolic as we…

Resurrection Songs’ Top 10 of 2017

A much delayed ‘year end list’.  So delayed, in fact, that if I left it any longer I really shouldn’t bother (which wouldn’t be the first time).  However, just as you’re all settled into 2018 and looking forward to a whole bunch of new releases, ol’ Jim here is reviewing 2017. It was a pretty…

“Man, this looks great”: December Record Round Up

Happy New Year, folks!  Figured a post about some new additions was a suitable first post of the year.  Just so happens that one of them is one of my favourite additions of 2017, while the other is my favourite addition of 2018 so far (arrived just last week).  So, here goes. *edit: I forgot…

“Found them on That Discogs”

Two new additions waiting for me when I arrived home from work. Bonus pick-me-ups at the end of a difficult week. I’ve been after these for a while and decided to snap them up when I saw them on Discogs for a couple of quid (including postage, I got them both for little over £6)….

Mind that guy?

Back to work today after 6 weeks. A killer. But, I figured the best way to celebrate (and work off 6 weeks worth of jelly beans and Fry’s Creams) was to stretch the legs at lunch and stop by the Record Fayre. A successful trip, too. Terence Trent D’Arby – Introducing The Hardline According To…

Red Hot Chili Peppers – One Hot Minute (1995)

One Hot Minute is the first and only Red Hot Chili Peppers album that featured then ex-Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro. Coincidentally it also found the band on a darker, richer vein of form than they had been on their previous albums (the less said about those that followed the better, in my opinion).  Gone…

Some Like It Hot

My fondness of Duran Duran comes from my fondness of Guns N’ Roses.  Not a link that some would make, so I’ll risk boring those who can make that link by, well, detailing the link.  No need for any of that 6 degrees of separation shenanigans, either.  Here goes… GN’R’s Duff McKagen and Matt Sorum…
