I think the title of this entry pretty much suggests what I'm gonna rant about, but… first off, I just want to say that from a commercial stand-point, I realise that there is a place for hip-pop and that plenty of people seem to really enjoy it. I don't want for there to be any presumption that I'm going to just rip some music to shreds and praise some other (I make no promises, what can I say? I'm passionate!) – I'll attempt to show … [read more]
I have five MySpace Music profiles to share with you today. The thing they all have in common (currently) is that they all have less than 10,000 views on their respective pages. So, we're gonna give them some more views, aren't we?!
I don't plan on going into too much detail on each profile as I am hoping you'll take the time to actually read the info on the pages yourself – I'm no copy & paste monkey! So, in no particular order, here are … [read more]

Who knows, maybe every once in a while it will be a track you've never heard before and will change your life forever! Or something … [read more]
The phrase "spread like wildfire" has never been more apt. Lily Allen is a 21 year old singer/songwriter from London. She has very quickly progressed from MySpace favourite to air-wave hogger. The speed at which Lily's fame has grown makes the Arctic Monkeys' rise to fame look like a tortoise running the London marathon. But what if you live under a rock? Who is Lily Allen? Well, I'll tell you…
Lily's music has been described as ska/pop. I first discovered her about a month or … [read more]
So, this is the first post of this new blog. If anyone is reading this, thank you, if nobody is reading this… well, I'm as good as talking to myself. Anyway… I figured a good first post would be to talk about what I have discovered to be quite a misconceived internet phenomenon… PODCASTS!
I think they are great. There I said it. Personally I listen to them 90% whilst on my laptop, and perhaps 10% of the time on CD whilst driving. If you've … [read more]
