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!

The Breeders - Saints (single)
Someone previously asked why I hadn't posted any Pixies on this site. I said I didn't think they needed the massive exposure this blog would bring them (chortle chortle). Anyway, this post is dedicated to that person....
This was probably my fave Breeders release, featuring a re-recorded version of the Last Splash track Saints. IMHO the Last Splash version was a bit lackluster, but this version kicks now serious arse*! Also featured are demo versions of the first two tracks from Last Splash, New Year, and the legendary Cannonball.
The Breeders - 1994 - Saints (single)
01 - Saints (J. Mascis Mix)
02 - Grunggae (early demo of Cannonball)
03 - New Year (demo)
* I remember reading the expression "kicks now serious arse" on a flyer for a band on the German label Steamhammer records. The band name is long lost in my distant hazy memories, but the expression has stayed with me....and I've finally found an opportunity to use it!
