OKAY please shut up! Yes it has been a wee while (22 days to be precise) since this diabolical diabetic last posted on this blog. No, I ain't dead (yet) but thanks to Rock Radio NI and the superb PureRockFury from Carrie on Blast 106 for keeping me sane!
More details and shit coming up in coming days - well I am making idle promises as the local offie now stocks miniature bottles of Jager at the superb price of 79 little pennies...which means a lot of shots for a tenner and loads of wee tiny bottles to line up til the recycling man comes along.
Now stay with me on this one...the recycling theme is pertinent to something, even if the link is tenuous.
When is a band justified in recycling its same old sounds? Or should it be like Maiden and try to explore the potential of its sound.
As payday has just stroked the hole in the wall with some available funds, what albums could you recommend that are not just the same old shit?
While you ponder that question remember if you have funds you may want to check out the Distortion Project's four days of mayhem...
