I'm adam, and yes, we've probably met somewhere before.
 
I write about music, about stuff in the news, and links I find on the 'net. And will comment on them too. Feel free to tell me I'm wrong or correct me or whatever. I know I am not always right. Reasonable, friendly debate is more than welcome, in fact encouraged...!
 
Occasionally I promote stuff. Hell, I'm a DJ. I'll also happily promote other things if I know about them - and if I do, they'll invariably make it onto my events listings.

Jesse McClear (Heavy Water Factory) - 2015 Interview

Thanks to the assistance of a mutual friend, I was able to get in touch with Jesse McClear of Heavy Water Factory - for me, at least, 2015s most surprising industrial (actually, music in general) return.

Tuesday Ten: 226: Who Let The Dogs Out?

It was Crufts over the weekend, and I have a partner who is obsessed with Dalmatians. So what else to write about this week, but dogs...but I had to paws for a while to get enough songs (with thanks to Daisy and Alex for assisting there).

Tuesday Ten: 225: Tracks of the Month (February 2015)

It's been a busy few weeks, and while compiling the list this week I realised that I've been posting regularly for the first time in a while. There won't be so much in March, mind - I'm away on holiday for a week shortly and other things are likely to get in the way too. But I'll be posting when I can.

Adventures in Audio-Visual - Randolph & Mortimer and Public Service Broadcasting Live

This week, within four days, I've seen two bands live that very much rely on the visual as much as the audio. One is a fiercely political industrial project taking it's first steps into the live arena, the other is a band dedicated to meshing old informational and propaganda videos with taut post-punk rhythms, and rising swiftly through the ranks. Weirdly enough, neither use "traditional" vocals to any great degree, either.

So, I thought it might be appropriate to have a look at both gigs in one go, and see how the different approaches worked.

Tuesday Ten: 224: Teenage Kicks

The teenage years - the hinterland between childhood and adulthood, where many find their voice, start to shape their own future and begin to form their musical and cultural tastes. The whole idea of the teenager, though, has changed over time, frequently thanks to cultural shifts and trends, and often there is an image of rebellion.
