The Top Seven Albums of 2013

Regular (HA!) readers will know that December means 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!

A Thundering Good Christmas

It sounds crazy, but Thunder gigs are unlike any other. It’s not all about the music – although the well crafted rock songs that they churn out effortlessly are of the highest standard – a Thunder gig is an event; it’s a party that 5 mates throw on the stage, and just happen to invite 1900 people to come round for a beer and a boogie.

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.

Are you part of The Union?

Rising like a phoenix from the ashes of Thunder, Luke Morley’s new project, The Union, deserves your attention.

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.
