Music: Recommendation – In A Perfect World by Kodaline

By James I’ve loved this band and this album for years. Well, since they released this debut album and broke into mainstream music. The issue is, I have recently stumbled upon a few reviews for the album... somehow. Not lightly did I take to the comments being made and so here we are - me…

Music: The Top 12 Songs by The Smiths

By Bill You may remember reading my story regarding The Smiths on the blog before, but if you don’t, I’ll recap quickly now. For my entire life, I have hated The Smiths. This is partly down to the fact that my parents hated them and that whenever they were brought up in conversation on TV…

Music: The Top 12 Mumford & Sons Songs

By James So, writing this list was, for me, about as hard as the Muse one I did a little while back… Another band that I utterly adore is, Mumford & Sons. They’re superb, consistent and relatively unique - mixing up country, pop, rock, folk and probably genres I’ve not even thought of. There are…

Music: Recommendation – Night Songs by Cinderella

By James Cinderelly, Cinderelly/ Night and day it’s Cinderelly…Okay, that’s enough of that… Yes, I like the band Cinderella and I’m getting the jokes about the name out of the way now.

Music: The Top 15 Aerosmith Songs of All Time

By Bill It’s a criminal shame that Aerosmith never enjoyed the same level of success over here as they have in their native America. A cross between The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, in the states they are rightfully heralded as rock gods and are one of the most commercially successful music acts of all…

Music: The Mysteries Behind Radiohead’s Thom Yorke

By James Radiohead. A multi-award winning experimental rock group from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK. They’re not for everyone, I will admit, but if you’ve always thought about getting into them, then think of the band as a psychedelic, even more, experimental version of Muse. But, we’re not here today to talk about Radiohead. No, the purpose…

Music: Top 10 Cover Songs of All Time

By Bill Cover songs, like movie remakes, are often derided and considered inferior works when compared to original versions, however there are a plethora of exceptions with some even exceeding the originals. Now, not all of these are better than the originals, however they come bloody close, with some even coming up trumps. The best…

Music: Recommendation – Places For Breathing by Revis

By James It is safe to assume that my love for rock comes from my father, that much is true. He is a die-hard rock fan and as a result has introduced me to, quite literally, hundreds of bands and musicians over the years. One band that I have always loved, and have always been…
