Its Been A While

Sorry for the no-show in recent months. To quote Booker T & The M.G.’s, ‘Time Was Tight’ with work commitments, a problematic server and some legal action being applied to a well known photographer from Fordham!

Normal service will be resumed shortly. Thanks for your patience.

Potential Christmas Number One?

I don’t normally have too much time for Christmas single releases these days but I heard rumor that the track ‘JCB’ by the wonderful ‘Nizlopi‘ is to be released as a potential contender for the all-important Christmas number one. I have had their CD, ‘Half These Songs Are About You’, a while now and by far the standout track is ‘JCB’. Folk Pop at its best!

Enough of my ramblings have a listen and let me know what you think. It will probably struggle with the majors but it would be nice to see it chart, lets face it, the awful X Factor will likely be number one. Oh joy!

You will probably need broadband to listen to this, sorry.
