2015 in gigs (so far).

Right now, as I sit here watching episodes of The Great Comic Relief Bake Off (and typing this blog post), Glenn is at an intimate Foo Fighters gig in Hobart. 

While I Was Gone.

I know I’ve been AWOL lately.  I spent three weeks following Garbage around Australia and New Zealand [while still somehow managing to keep up with all of my homework, and not missing too many classes]. 


For the third installment of “Under the Covers”, I decided to celebrate my favourite decade – the 90s – by playing a selection of covers of 90s songs, as well as some covers of earlier tracks recorded by seminal 90s acts.

More than just kilts and bagpipes…

The Fratellis are done and dusted, according to NME.com.  This saddens me a little, but, you know, these things happen.  I was an avid Fratellis fan, but they peaked with their first album, and after the youthful energetic brilliance of Costello Music, their sophomore effort, Here We Stand was something of a disappointment.
