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!

Eels - I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man
As I said in an earlier post, "retiring" from the blogosphere has ironically rejuvenated my interest in posting, but not enough to want to do so regularly. In some respect I regret "retiring" - I should have just said I'd post less often - i.e. when I felt like it rather than when I felt I should!
So I'm officially changing my status - from "retired blogger" to "occasional blogger".
Here's another Eels track, this time from the compilation album Like A Version 2. Like A Version is a regular session featured on Australian youth radio station Triple J, and features bands performing cover versions. Most of the sessions are instantly forgettable but this once is superb - a cover of the Prince (or Poonce, as my bro used to call him!) toon I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man
This is a different arrangement of the track than that on Useless Trinkets, featuring vocals and acoustic guitar. Gorgeous!
