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!

Various Artists - Alternative NRG

Another quick post.....

Unlike some of the other compilations I've posted, I can't say I love this album, but I love the concept - all tracks were recorded live using a solar-powered mobile facility.

Highlights include REM's legendary funk version of Drive, Soundgarden performing the awesome and malevolent New Damage with Brian May, and JC by Sonic Youth.

Also good to see two Aussie bands featured - Yothu Yindi and "The Oils"!

  1. Now *that* is an interesting mix of artists- a couple of which I haven't thought of in years. I'm wary cause of your not in love with it status, but I'm scooping it up if only for the Sonic Youth. Thank you!

  2. Adelle, didn't mean to scare you off!

    I don't love this album as there are a few bands here I hate (Soup Dragons, EMF), a few I dislike intensely (UB40, James), and a few I just plain dislike (Annie Lennox).

    But the rest is good to excellent!

    Maybe I was should have mentioned JAMC and the Disposables in the "highlights"? "...Kick" is far from JAMCs best songs but it's still cool!

  3. thanks for this link, for long times I surfing but did not find it. Link is dead... pls re-up this link dude...
