This week I’ve mostly been in pain.
Not, as you might expect, from riding 60 odd miles from London to Brighton for the British Heart Foundation on Sunday, (what was that? You want to sponsor me? Oh, go on then … ) but more from having my first proper falling off incident about 9hrs before I was due to start. I’ve not had road rash like this since I was about 15 years old.
Lesson learned, don’t spend many hours in the Kernel Brewery and then try and cycle across town afterwards.
Right what was that, music? Oh yeah …
I’m back (and I’m on time for once!)
This week almost writes itself … enjoy
Wow, second week back after my brief hiatus and I”ve dropped the ball already!
I’ll blame a teething one year old for waking me up so often this week, I was losing track of what day it was …
Meh, one day late, the tunes still bump.
Ahoy – apologies for the unannounced outage, but my hard drive collapsed into a steaming heap after Asus decided up update some of their software and utterly ruin the file structure on my laptop. Basically that meant that I couldn’t even start the damn machine up, or if it did get to the logon screen, the mouse wouldn’t move.
One total OS reinstall and complete system rebuild later, I’m back up and going (well, almost). I’m a bit of a nerd, so I was backed up to the hind teeth – I highly recommend zovo for this, up to half a terabyte of storage for free with the right signup coupon, and it’s done the job brilliantly.
Three on a Thursday, the Ctrl:Alt:TheBeat show and a massive backlog of reviews with soon be unleashed.
I’m BACK baby!
Ahoy kids, it’s that time of the week where I bless your ears with three of the best tunes that I’ve stumbled over in the previous week. Aren’t you lucky?
Brace yourselves, I’m going in dry!
I did think of doing a ‘Heinz 57’ inspired mega-dig for tunes, but to be honest doing 6 last week was tiring enough, so lets just still to quality not quantity, eh? Continue reading
3, 2, 1, you’re back in the room …
Apologies for the lack of a ToT last week, I was in Toyko on my hols and was suffering from a dearth of wi-fi access – or at least reasonably priced wi-fi access – I wasn’t going to pay the £20 a day the hotel wanted to charge me – I blame my Scottish heritage for the ‘deep pockets & short arms’ nature of this excuse
Never fear though, normal service has been returned, and to make up for the emotional trauma of missing a week, I’ve dropped a double dose of tunes on you below …
OK, I’m assuming that it’s Thursday over in the UK, as I’m quite a few timezones away, and more than a smidge
This Three on a Thursday comes to you via a spare hour on Sunday evening, another couple in Changi Airport in Singapore, and for the final bit, a mates dining room in Adelaide … see, that’s commitment to your musical edification, eh?
Anyway, enough with that, I’m off on a winery tour … best get to the the tunes …
Evening all – bit of a mad dash today on the old ToT, as the wife and child have dived off on their hols and I’m left at home all alone. Which obviously means I’ve been spending more time in the pub and at gigs than I have listening to the choicest tunes with a view to presenting them to you of a Thursday evening
Never fear though, I’ve come through for you … read on.
Ahoy kids – running it close to the wire again, it’s Three on a Thursday time again!
This week brace yerselves for some Kiwi FunkHopSoul gubbins, a Latin beats workout and a wobbly pile of Funk and Hip-Hop samples …
