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…

Poco – Head Over Heels (1975)

Here’s a strange one… Poco were a band I only heard of thanks to Blabber ‘n’ Smoke’s Paul Kerr.  He’d mentioned them once or twice and said he liberated a copy of Head Over Heels during a visit to a charity shop.  It was mine if I wanted it.  Of course, being into records, Buffalo…

Heavy Meet-up Overload

When I started this whole blogging thing a few years back, the purpose was really just to write about what I was listening to.  I didn’t really give much thought to whether or not folks would be interested enough to enter into discussions and I certainly didn’t imagine that I’d meet a whole bunch of…

Best track I’ve heard this year.

So, I’ve been listening to the new Queens of the Stone Age track, The Way You Used To Do, a helluva lot since it appeared on YouTube the other week.  It’s a belter.  A real groover. I’ve been declaring it the best track I’ve heard this year.  Nothing to do with Homme & Co. being one…

Love

Man.  Wednesday was a strange ol’ day.  The boy and I done some Adventuring in the morning.  That involves going for a walk wherever he wants to go.  Like his daddy, he’s taken to trains.  So we tend to go to the station that’s just a couple of minutes from our home and wait for…

“New records are good, right?”: New Additions

I got some new records last week.  New records are good, right?  They are indeed. I popped into the Record Fayre on Thursday afternoon determined to snag a copy of The Power Station LP that I’d seen in there during all my visits over the last few years.  Did I find it, though?  No I…
