    In 1968, when the rest of the world were feeling the summer of love, Kingston Jamaica was bubblin’ hot. The choppy organ sound that had long been a bit-player in the ska and rock steady scenes had taken a new turn to emerge as a central anchor for

    As a child I was spoilt rotten by beautiful women. It’s true. The glamourpusses on TV – Shirley Bassey, Diana Ross, Martha Reeves – were just like my mum and her fabulous sisters, still teenage or thereabouts. All makeup and powder and

    Around 79-80 all the biggest reggae sounds came on big thick disco 45s. 12″ sized vinyl on the first flight from Jamaica that tended to featured a hit song (not infrequently a re-cut of a rocksteady hit everyone in Jamaica knew well), mixed to a wicked

    Motorhead – 1916

    Commemorating the great war in song is a serious business, and yet it’s the heartfelt works that spring to mind on the anniversary. Lemmy Kilmister was and still is one of British rock’s legend outsiders. Never taken seriously by critics, he was

    Shipbuilding

    Jul 30, 14 • 2306 Views • British, FeaturedComments Off on Shipbuilding

    The song Shipbulding came at us quite literally out of left field. Written by a singer still struggling to to shake off a superficial “angry brainic” persona – Elvis Costello – in response to a complicated political war.

    Whole Lotta love

    As a kid living in a coalfield backwater and getting into punk rock there was a big local problem. Everyone else. At 15 it was clear that all my musically-inclined peers were into traditional long haired rock, and Led Zeppelin were, at the time, considered

    Keith Hudson’s Nuh Skin Up was something else. Some fine 12″ version vinyl had been emerging from Jamaica for a few years – one being Hudson’s ‘Brand’ from ’77. But suddenly there was this menacing and downright angry

    If I’m going to write this blog I have to start somewhere and it might as well be in the back of a beat up Thunderbird throwing up dust along some Indiana highway, the Fork White River down there somewhere.

    Iggy’s Lust for Life

    I fell for Iggy Pop not because of his music, but because of a photograph.  Let me explain. As a kid I loved the glam rock stylings of David Bowie and specifically a larger than life theatrical character Bowie created called Ziggy Stardust.

    Written October 27th 2013 I learned, just now, that Lou died today. I never met him or even saw him perform. But in so many small ways he made my life bigger and brighter and sharper and more inspirational.
