Tuesday Ten: 238: Dead on “TV”

This week, time for a Tuesday Ten I’ve been thinking about and working on, gradually, for a few months. I was set a challenge, you see: to come up with a Tuesday Ten where deaths occur “on camera” (i.e. are described or happen in the songs). However, I could not rely on some of the usual suspects – particularly Cave, Cash and Dylan. Some interesting suggestions were originally made, I thought of a few more, and then opened it up to my readers for some other ideas, and the result is the ten below.

Tuesday Ten: 183: An Infest Retrospective

As Infest 2013 looms this weekend – and with the announcement that there won’t be an Infest in 2014, either – I’ve decided that it is time to look back at the twelve Infests I’ve attended previously (I’ve been to every one since 2000, and of course there wasn’t one in 2009).

2012 in review: Best Tracks

Yet again, this list was a tough one. 2012 actually ended up being an impressive year for new music, as far as I was concerned, it just didn’t all come from the corners that I was expecting. Read more “2012 in review: Best Tracks”

Tuesday Ten: 153: Tracks of the Month (March 2012)

I guess last week’s repackaging Tuesday Ten was kinda apt, seeing as this past week has marked five years of my Tuesday Ten series. That is five years of me carping on about music in various forms. And seeing as I’m not out of ideas yet for the series, they will keep on coming. So, on with this week. Read more “Tuesday Ten: 153: Tracks of the Month (March 2012)”

Tuesday Ten: 123: Tracks of the Month (February 2011)

Another month, time again for my usual monthly rundown of ten tracks you should hear. Unfortunately there isn’t a lot of this months on Spotify, but what there is of it can be found on the link in the box. Read more “Tuesday Ten: 123: Tracks of the Month (February 2011)”

Tuesday Ten: 119: Also Featuring…

For my first Tuesday Ten proper in about two months, I’m looking at guest appearances. I thought I had covered this before, but somehow it appears that I haven’t. Anyway – guest appearances are either used a little cynically (to get the guest artist more exposure, or even to get the other artist more “credibility” by a certain guest appearing), or simply because it’s a good musical fit. I’m hoping that most of this list at least is the latter. Other suggestions for ones that I’ve missed are welcome. Read more “Tuesday Ten: 119: Also Featuring…”

2010 in review: Best Tracks

There has been so much good music this year – as well as a few stinkers, frankly, but let’s not dwell on those, at least for now – that for the first time ever in a year roundup I’ve stretched this one out to cover 25 songs, and I’ve still had to miss a couple of things out.

Tuesday Ten: 093: Tracks of the Month (February 2010)

Not having picked up much new music in recent weeks, it has given me a chance at last to try and catch up a little with various promo items and things have that come my way, that I may have missed mentioning at the time or hadn’t got ’round to listening to yet.

Tuesday Ten: 027: Crossing Boundaries

For this week's Tuesday Ten, I'm looking at the idea of bands who have successfully brought together disparate genres into their sound. There are likely many more bands that have done this other than the ones I have come up with (it was a difficult list to create, frankly), and other suggestions are welcome.
