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!

Rant #1

I've titled this rant #1 as I can feel a few more coming on - on a few different subjects!

My request for comments was based upon people giving second opinions of the material I made available. It was not about being thanked. In fact, after the first few comments I received, I was going to make a point of saying "Don't feel the need to thank me". This blog is about the music, not me. After all, I have been as guilty as anyone of not leaving thanks.

But I've since had my first negative reaction from an artist/artists representative. It hurts when someone you respect questions your integrity. It made me appreciate the risk that bloggers take, both personally, and legally, in making material available. And I'm not the only blogger that has recently been through this - check out the legendary Luxor's recent post on this very issue.

So I've changed my opinion - some thanks would be nice! Not just for me, but for all bloggers that make material available for you to download.
