As you may have guessed, I'm pretty much through with this MP3 blogging lark. While it was awesome fun for the three years I was involved, work and life has generally caught up with me, meaning I don't have the time for pondering about the merits of the latest buzz band or genre.
Those who are fans of my inane rambling can take comfort in the fact that while I'm not writing here about music, my opiniated musings can be found over at my new blog. There, I'm talking about all sorts, so there's a mixture of web, tech and food thrown in amongst occasional playlists and albums on Spotify.
Thanks for all the support over the years, and I'll see you around the interwebs in other places. Nice one.
MP3 Johnny Boy - You are the Generation that bought more shoes and you'll get what you deserve.
I'd forgotten all about this tune, and it's just come on the office stereo. A rather excellent homage by Sir David of Bowie to the region I'm from, which can be found on his album "the Man who Sold the World". At the end of the day, we should all know by now that the Black Country is the home of all things heavy, and upon hearing this, I'm rather proud to be from that place again. Rock on.
MP3 David Bowie - Black Country Rock
And straight into my first proper post about music we go. A good pal of mine over in NYC - the mighty Dev Sherlock - promised me a mix of Jamaican jams like, 2 FUCKING YEARS ago. So whaddaya know, last week he drops it into my inbox and is like all "so when you puttin' this joint up den badboi". I said "look dude, I ain't bloggin' so much at the moment, check me twitter". He wasn't having any of it. So, if you want to hear what summer sounds like in the mind of a Hype Machine radio show producer, you know precisely what to do. Boom.
MP3 Selector Dev Sherlock - Cool Out Son
It's been over 6 months since these pages saw anything that resembled new content. Not that I'm making excuses, but I've been so fucking busy with work I've really not had the time or the inclination to get anything new online. I'm also pretty horrified with the stance Google have taken with blogs by removing content as and when they see fit, which is a bit hard on those of us who take the time and effort to craft a well written post about something that they like. Still, it's not getting me down. I'm actually intending on redoing this blog completely and moving to - Shock Horror - Wordpress. I'll post up a few bits here from time to time to let you know I'm still like, alive and stuff. But big changes be a comin', let me tell you.

Yeah I know, been a bit busy again. Yadda yadda yadda. Well, I'm back with a goody. Simply drop me a line here explaining precisely why you should be given the a pair of tickets for the Passion Pit/Hockey show at Ruby Lounge in Manchester this Wednesday. I'll throw in the above promo too just to prove how goddam serious I am. Innit.
MP3 Passion Pit - Sleepyhead (The Knocks Remix)
MP3 Hockey - 3am Spanish
I love the Genius playlist feature in iTunes. Sometimes, I break it, as I'll be playing some bedroom remix of something obscure that there's no data on, but generally, it's top. Here's what it's thrown at me this morning. Meets my mood well.
MP3 Nas - Where are they now
MP3 Artful Dodger and Craig David - Woman Trouble
MP3 Jay Z - December 4th
MP3 Pharoahe Monch - Push

I felt the urge to listen to Brendan Benson's second album "Lapalco" when in the shower earlier. Can't figure out why, Maybe I missed it? I have spent a lot of hours listening to that record over the years. Hmm.
