Welcome to my blog!

UPDATE: Mediafire have suspended my account and locked my downloads. Having endured the tedium of re-uploading everything I had previously hosted on Mega Upload onto Mediafire earlier this year, I can't be arsed re-uploading everything again.

So please don't ask for things to be reuploaded!

I undertake this venture knowing that I don't have the spare time to do it, but feel that these artists NEED TO BE HEARD (please excuse my shouting!). Or is that I think I need to be heard? Or that there are (or have been) some great music blogs that have inspired me to wanna jump on the bandwagon? Probably all of the above??I hope you enjoy the blog. If I turn one person onto these bands that turned me on then it will all have been worth it!

So whaddya think?

So far there have been almost 500 downloads of the material I have made available, but only 4 comments.

Of these 4 comments, only one comment actually related to the material I have made available.

Fortunately this comment, on my Phonograph post, indicates that I have turned at least one person onto one of these bands. So in terms of the modest metric indicated in my blog header (If I turn one person onto these bands that turned me on then it will all have been worth it!), I have been successful!

However, I'd like to hear what other people think of the material I have made available. Do I have a leg to stand on, or am I a misguided fool? Does this blog fill a niche?

Second opinions may help people to take a chance and try out some of this stuff.

All comments, positive or negative, appreciated. I don't bite!


  1. Hey there,
    As a fellow new blogger, I know what it's like to have healthy (I think) downloads with just a handful of comments - often people are just grabbing stuff they've once had or curious about and they'd have nothing to say apart from 'Thanks'. And do people need an account (with Google or jeez knows who else) to comment? That can be a little off putting. You should be heartened by the fact that people are coming back and downloading stuff (500+ don't sound too shabby to me!)Normal manners don't apply on the InterWeb, so 'Please' and 'Thank You' don't get said often enough.
    Even as we speak, I'm downloading the Wilco stuff. So, 'Thanks'.
    You're doing a great job and people are digging it...oh, and if you take requests, I'll have anything by The Lime Spiders, please.

  2. Thanks for blogging. I've been keeping an eye on your posts and so far I haven't been too interested, but different strokes for different folks. I expect to find some good stuff acording to my tates at some point. Keep up the good work if it pleases you. Best wishes.
