Aphorisms by Tragical History Tour

Aphorisms is the full LP debut by Derrick Johnston of Make-That-A-Take Records, and countless bands with numerous other releases behind his belt. Ten tracks of heartfelt raw emotion and experience which is undersold by the modest title. Its a great record, but I’ve delayed being able to write about it and I’m not sure why. […]

Slowlight ‎– The Only Thing I Want Is To Know What I Want

I’ve been on a bit of an emo kick lately. Probably fuelled by Rainer Maria reforming and then discovering the excellent Save Ends. At Book Yer Ane Fest 2016 one of the best new bands I saw was Glasgows Slowlight. I got their EP and played it a lot, liking Repeat The Pattern especially. Then […]

Working through the music and hearing some awesome stuff including Fucko, I then hit Save Ends – Hug Your Friends. The contrasting dual vocals immediately reminded me of Rainer Maria. One of my favourite bands, who I first […]

2016 In Music

2016 has been an absolute stonker of a year for music. Gigs The Fun Lovin’ Criminals were in Glasgow for their 20th Anniversary Tour. I couldn’t resist getting tickets to my favourite live band. They also released a Come Find Yourself – 20th Anniversary Edition on vinyl which may or may not be sitting in […]

What You Shouldn’t Ask A DJ

After seeing a couple of funny things DJs have been asked style posts I thought I would compile a list of a few belters. No apologies for forgetting exact quotes or munging quotes from Tired and emotional people to make it more coherent or compressing multiple very similar incidents into one. I was originally intending […]
