Sometimes, digging up 3 tracks for you lot to feast your ears on is hard work – ploughing through screeds of derivative stale takes on the same old samples, dodging PRs who insist I’m going to love their latest alt-country star (I won’t), and avoiding EDM can chafe a touch.
Compared to normal, this week’s been pretty easy. My tune-radar was finely honed and the following 3 stunners pretty much dropped into my lap this week. Result!
Another week and three more tunes for your lugholes. Quick Bristol gig tip if you’re about tomorrow night – Jimi Needles with his band at The Lanes – gwaaaan, it’ll be good!
Last week was a bit of an odd one. Started digging for tunes … and was generally uninspired. Not sure if it was me, a lack of digging, or just a poor week for releases, but nothing jumped out and slapped me, made me think “yeah, YEAH, this is killer!”.
Anyway the upshot was I didn’t post anything – don’t want to let the standards drop do we?
Ok, I’ll admit it, in a haze of cheese, turkey and Quality Street, I forgot what day, hell, what week it even was it was, hence the non-emergence of anything on the blog from me, since before Christmas.
Ooops – best rectify that now.
(Oh, and many thanks for The Canteen and the thoroughly goofy and highly talents Mustard Brass Band for having me play on the 23rd – check those guys and gals out, especially if you like barefoot breakdancing tuba players, as pictured above)

Apologies for the break in service – been busy parenting. When the little darlings are being swine about going to sleep at an even vaguely reasonable hour, I’m utterly lacking in energy to write.
Still, back now …
Finally got the kids to bed, best crack a beer and get on with this weeks tunes eh?
A day late, mostly due to kids who refuse to go to sleep, but here none the less …
