Tuesday Ten: 265: You Could Have Both

A warning: this week's Tuesday Ten features adult and sexual themes.

Still here? Thought you might be.

Tuesday Ten: 264: Tracks of the Month (June 2016)

These are turbulent times in the UK at least at the moment - with the prospect of choppy waters elsewhere too in 2016 - and it has rather been sapping my will to write, among other things. But, the world continues, and letting it stop would not be a good thing either. So here I am again, with ten great new songs - interestingly all from overseas, from the US, France and Germany - from a variety of styles, too.

Tuesday Ten: 263: Tracks of the Month (June 1996)

Part five of my monthly rundown, across this year, of tracks from 1996 that broadly, I still love now.

NOIR - 2016 Interview

For the latest interview on, Athan Maroulis - nowadays performing under the NOIR name - kindly gave up his time to discuss his current project and his musical past.

I've been following work by Maroulis since his time in the long-underrated band Spahn Ranch, so I was curious to know more. All photos were supplied courtesy of Athan Maroulis.

Tuesday Ten: 262: A Place Called England

Watching Frank Turner perform all of his (exceptional) album England Keep My Bones the other week - with a packed, young crowd bellow along to every word - got me thinking. Who else is actually writing songs about being proud to be English (or in some cases, British?)? Was there anyone else?
