Sound Affects Thirty Years On

Written by

The Jam's fifth album is the greatest album ever made. You can argue the merits of any classic album to me and you could tell me why it's better than 'Sound Affects', but it wouldn't make a blind bit of difference.

The Fordham Festival

Written by

While the weather may have held out for Fordham's event sadly the punters did not. While the
line up on the Sunday was interesting and appealing it was largely wasted on an audience equally…well…wasted…mainly as a result of the local ales and lethal scrumpy on offer.

The Wonderstuff Reborn

Written by
the wonderstuff simon murrey zani 3.

You’ve owned records by some bands for years. You might occasionally play them amidst a wave of nostalgia. You might venture out to see them play live ‘just one more time’, but there’s always the danger that you’ll be disappointed. That the band who provided the soundtrack to your formative years aren’t as good as you remembered. That they can’t quite cut it any more.
