Nowadays – and perhaps as always during their twenty-five-year career – the release of a new Young Gods album is an event. A band of unusual standing, a band that don’t really fit in amongst the usual genre descriptions, and frankly have long since had the freedom to record what they like. Which has seen […]
Back in the mists of time (in other words, back in 2009), I did a rundown of – according to me – the best songs and albums of the past decade, and then followed it up with similar treatment of the 90s. Although, I only ever got the best songs done.
Part eight, and we’re nearly there.
The fourth instalment of this lengthy rundown.
I’m sure I’ve at least mentioned these in passing before, but I can’t find it (the perils of using titles to posts that don’t actually tell me all that much when searching for things!), so it’s perhaps overdue that I make this into a Tuesday Ten, especially with such an interesting response on Facebook and […]
I've picked up quite a bit of new music recently, so this was one of the easiest monthly lists I've done in a while. Anyway, here are ten tracks that have rocked my world in the last month.
Time for my usual monthly round-up of ten tracks of the month…
Loosely inspired by other silly posts comparing Euro 2008 to other things (the European Championships of Beer being the best I've seen so far), I'm turning my attention this week to the more international corners of my music collection – and in particular, bands that sing in other languages than English, and indeed perhaps their […]
A slightly different Tuesday Ten this week – and it will be the last 2007 retrospective. So what is this one? Well, it needs some explanation.
Part three of my round-up of the year, and this week it is my albums of the year. Despite my reservations recently that there hadn’t been an awful lot to recommend for 2007, it turns out that there are actually quite a lot.
First, I should mention the support band. A band from the south-west called Undercut, who were really rather good. Not at all the type of band I would expect to see supporting a band like TYG, but maybe that was half the fun. A five-piece alternative rock band, with passing nods in the music to […]
Over twenty years of making music, and it appears that TYG have no intentions of getting bored with their form of art yet. There really isn’t any point in trying to pigeonhole this band into a genre – they have crossed so many boundaries, used so many influences over their existence since 1985 (think Kurt […]
I'm not sure what got me thinking about this, it must have been listening to something when I got home last night. But in a quiet hour I started on a list of albums that inspired me, got me interested in something new, triggered something…hopefully you know what I mean. So here it is. I'd […]
