My Friends’ Band

The Small Personal Victories, not a bad name kinda catchy i think. I’ve always liked the idea of knowing people who are in bands just in case you can say you knew them one day.. They played for the first time in front of a live crowd and produced a pretty good sound, as for everyone else hearing them you can do so on this link, the recording isn’t amazing but they put in a good sound (they also have a cheeky interview).. tell me what you think and I can pass the compliments on (making assumptions on the compliments part)!

Nujabes my King!

I swear there is no better music on earth than the stuff that Nujabes produces. If you look at his comments then all you feel is the love from people round the world focussed into his beats (I’m glad i’m writing this down because I definitely couldn’t pull off these sentences with my posh accent)!

If you are looking for a chill out and need some background music, about the only music i can work to, this is the stuff, there is an epic playlist on youtube, I’m not personally a fan of the ones which feature rappers because they distract from the overall relaxation of it but try it out for yourself…

It’s time to play with Olympic Fire

We are now on the home stretch to London 2012 Olympics. All we have seen of Britain’s Olympic potential in opening ceremonies is the famous double decker bus with David Beckham doing what he does best. Leaving our reputation in the hands of Boris Johnson is not a wonderous prospect, especially as he wetted our cringe reflexes when he sauntered to centre stage in China’s closing ceremony, and showed his well oiled flag-waving skills.

As I sat and watched Canada’s closing ceremony, however, with the likes of Michael J. Fox and Michael Buble, I could not help but think that we can upstage them. We have much more to offer in our history and our artistic talent. We have the likes of Sir Ian Mckellen and the Queen (though I am not asking her to partake in the ceremony). With a musical playground in the stadiums back garden we should not fail to be creative beyond belief. I hope we follow China and Australia and do not recede with our artistic licence to play acting our stereotypes just as Canada did. It is not down to the athletes, but down to us, as to whether we leave a strong and lasting impression, making it hard for Brazil to carry on the Olympic flame.
