The Top Seven Albums of 2014

It’s nearly the end of the year, and as usual, any idiot with a keyboard and a blog starts putting together end of year lists. This idiot is no different… it’s time for my annual top seven albums of the year!

A dark and wet night at the tail end of January in 2014. I never expected to be going to see a Del Amitri gig in 2014… Continue reading “Del Amitri; live @ The Hydro”

It’s 2014! New year, new music! Here’s the first new record I bought this year, and if you like the good old fashioned world of METAL (all in caps, obviously) then this, my probably tinnitus suffering friend, is for you. Continue reading “Review: Collibus – The False Awakening”
