A blog dedicated to music/DJing, vintage vinyl and brownies. Welcome to my world.
Channel your inner Joe Strummer and come out to Black Bear Bar tonight. I’ll be spinning the best punk, rock’n’roll, mod and britpop beats, 10-close.

Making a 7” setlist for my next gig. The Libertines versus Dirty Pretty Things versus Babyshambles. Whichever you prefer, here’s hoping they manage to get visas and play the States. #thelibertines #dirtyprettythings #babyshambles #vinyalways #tourthestates

Christopher Owens has just released the video to “Nothing More Than Everything To Me”. Directed by Max Minghella, the track is a little bit country, a little bit gospel and a whole lot of soul. I’ve already got my tickets for his live shows in NYC this Fall and can’t wait to hear the rest of “A New Testament” album. (Preach brother, preach.)

The Drums have previewed a track from their third album Encyclopedia with “Magic Mountain”. This track has a much harder edge - like new wave-meets-harcore thrash with teeth. I’m excited to stream the LP. 

A clip from Threats’ live set at The Stolen Girlfriends Club Capsule Collection last Thursday.

When not playing guitar in Drowners or designing wearable artwork, Jack Ridley takes the mike and sings lead for Threats. (Drowners vocalist Matt Hitt steps back and supports on bass, allowing him to shine.) Jack Ridley is a natural frontman and this platform really lets him rip up the stage. What I love most about Drowners is their live show. (On record, Drowners come across as more melodic, with Johnny Marr-like guitars whereas live, they tap into a more raw, explosive sound.)  

My love of rock and roll has only gotten stronger through the onslaught of so much auto-tuned mediocrity - Threats provides a much needed shot in the arm for music. 

My teenage self is hoping Damon Albarn brings Graham Coxon and Paul Simonon on stage tonight. #damonalbarn #blur #gorillaz #thegoodthebadandthequeen #grahamcoxon #paulsimonon (at Irving Plaza)

Twenty years later and I still remember the shock. Remembering Kurt Cobain today by playing @Nirvana and wishing him peace. #kurtcobain #nirvana #beautifulboy #stillmissed
