I knew it was a bad idea to start writing about the bands that follow me on Twitter

Because another band has followed me. Once I start something I have to carry on. Plus I like helping people. So despite my reservations, I’m going to write about the latest band to follow my Twitter account.

‘Take Courage’ by The First: a release day review

The last time I posted I wrote about another band that had followed me on Twitter and mentioned they had a new album out today. While I was scrolling through Twitter this morning I saw a tweet from the band and thought I’d see if I could find the album on Spotify. I was inContinue reading “‘Take Courage’ by The First: a release day review”

‘The First’; or the most recent band to follow me on Twitter

This band from Wisbech in Cambridgeshire followed me on Twitter recently, and this morning I had a listen to some of their music. The video below is from their new album ‘Take Courage’, which will be out on the 23rd September. Their first album ‘Swimming with Sharks’ is available on Spotify.

Review:’Spirit’ – the new album from Reckless Love

http://open.spotify.com/track/7vKZIz31BW6IMIDcLjUHUJ I reviewed this album (badly) last Monday, the UK release day. Now that I’m feeling marginally better (I haven’t died from this cold yet) and have had a chance to listen to the album a few (dozen) times, I feel more capable of reviewing it properly and fairly.

Avenged Sevenfold ‘Hail to the King’

Last evening my brother-in-law asked whether I’d heard the new Avenged Sevenfold album. When I told him I hadn’t had a chance yet he recommended I listen to it when I had the chance. I had that chance this morning (Spotify/internet connection – same old story). My bro-in-law described some of the songs as beingContinue reading “Avenged Sevenfold ‘Hail to the King’”

Something light hearted before I start posting book reviews

Reckless Love (hyperactive glam rock band from Finland – very 80’s!) release their new album ‘Spirit’ a week today. Today they released the video for one of the songs on that album. The song is called ‘So happy I could die’, and it really is a cheerful tune.

Finally: Outta Line

This is the band that all the drunk teenagers appear to have come to see. They were here last year apparently. I must have missed them. They’re not half bad, tackling The Beatles and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. And plenty of Green Day.Still waiting for some original stuff though; it’s another covers band, albeitContinue reading “Finally: Outta Line”
