Once again, we have all survived another year, and here we are in December. Regular (HA!) readers will know that can mean only one thing… no, not mince pies and Die Hard on the TV… I’m referring to my annual Top 7 Albums Of The Year! Continue reading
The Thunder Christmas Party
21st December 2011
Nottingham Rock City
The usual Christmas festivities in Thunder Towers resumed this year, with the resurrection of what their T-shirts call a great British tradition. And you know what? On this showing, they may just be right.
Yes folks, it’s December 31st, so it’s time to look back upon the past year and declare what I regard as my favourite albums of the year. I know you’re all waiting with baited breath to read what I liked… so here goes – my top 7. Why 7? Why not? And, as is customary with these things, they’ll be in reverse order.
Now, as you may know, in a previous life (ha!) I was/am/forever will be a HUUUUGE fan of Thunder. Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and Thunder split up. I have found solace, however, in THE UNION – the new band formed by ex-Thunder guitarist, song writer and all round “top bloke” Luke Morley, and former Winterville main man and Thunder friend Pete Shoulder.
Here’s a sample of what they’re about:
Their debut release is a three track EP, cheaply priced at just £1.99 – and if that’s not persuasion enough, you can download Step Up To The Plate, the first track, free to sample their wares by simply going to their website at: TheUnionOnline.com.
Well worth a few minutes of your time, folks. Go have a listen.
