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!

Grant Lee Phillips - Walking In The Green Corn
Following on from my Dimmer post, here's another Shoulda Been Huge community announcement!
Another Shoulda Been Huge fave, Grant Lee Phillips (nee Buffalo) has just written and recorded a new album Walking In The Green Corn.
But rather than selling his soul to those [insert your favorite negative descriptors here] record companies, he's seeking your support to fund the mastering, manufacturing, marketing, promotion and tour support of this new album.
You can support Grant by making a pledge to pre-order the album and take part in the greater pledge drive through Pledge Music for US$10. This will allow you to take advantage of the some of the great offers that are up for grabs. You’ll have access to exclusive videos and updates about the album and its release, as well as news on live performances and more.
I'm desperately hoping Grant can make this idea work, and provide a succcesful alternative model for artists to get their music out to their fans - rather than artists having to prostitute themselves at the altar of the evil fascist (my favorite negative descriptors) recording industry.....smash the state!
