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!

Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks - Radio sessions
Sorry readers, been a bit busy lately. As John Lennon once said, life is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans!
So a quick post featuring some recent radio sessions from the criminally under-rated Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks! The BBC session is a solo acoustic session and interview - it's interesting to hear tracks from the excellent new Mirror Traffic album played in this manner - although the file format is a bit weird! The KCRW and KEXP sessions are full band sessions with interviews.
This also gives me the opportunity to rave about the fantastic music resources that are the KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic and KEXP web sites. The former also provide footage of most bands in-studio performances, as featured in this post.
If you haven't been to either site, follow the links above and correct this oversight. Mind you, you may spend the next 24 hours perusing their charms. Don't say I didn't warn you!
