CD Review – Over The Years by Graham Nash

Disc one of this set is a  fifteen track retrospective of Graham Nash post Hollies. It’s a great starting point for folks just discovering his work as well as a handy collection for the more long-standing fans to keep in the car or something. Disc two is the real treasure of this release. It’s a collection of fourteen previously unreleased,… Read more »

CD Review – Make by Blake Jones and The Trike Shop

I confess this review is being published later than I planned, partly due to real life getting in the way but mostly due to being distracted by wanting to just listen to the album for pure enjoyment rather than working out what to say about it. In fact the album has been an almost constant companion on my commute to… Read more »

CD Review – Death Of A Western Heart by B-Leaguers

With dynamic basslines, some of which would fit in with classic rock bands, and searing Ramones influenced guitars coupled with the distinct vocal stylings of James Styring (The Popdogs) this power-pop offering is, quite frankly, bloody marvellous!

CD Review – In Animal Character by Bruise

I received this CD around Christmas time but have only just been able to give it the time it deserves. On their social network sites Bruise describe themselves as Nu Folk (facebook) and Progressive Folk (twitter), but my only labels for them are Jim and Isobel who I have known now for several years. (Which is my way of declaring… Read more »
