Save Ends

I bought a collection of music from the label Black Numbers as part of the ACLU fundraiser. 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.

I was originally intending […]

Dundee City of Culture Bid

It’s been surprising how little and much has been said about Dundee’s bid to be UK City of Culture 2017. How little in the long-run up. And then so much in the last week. Some good, some bad. Some indifferent. The public face of the bid started with the launch of We Dundee with locals […]

Dundee Loses Another Songwriting Genius

Following the deaths of Dougie Martin and Gus Foy, Dundees own Michael Marra has died suddenly at the too young age of 60. I feel like one of the old guys who used to hang round the Westie or Balcony years ago talking about all the old musicians, bands and venues which are sadly no […]
