Well at the beginning of the year we lost our bass player and our drummer but i guess these things happen , And it wasn’t through bad vibes our change of direction it just happened . so Gary and myself sat down and thought about how we overcome this issue after trying out new bass players and drummers none of them actually got what we as a band are about or had a clue of less is more if that makes any sense .
So after heaps of coffee and bouncing around ideas and plans we actually came up with lets just do all the parts ourselves until we actually found the correct people we want this time rather than just grab the first available bassist and drummer and to quote Gary ” if they like us they will join us ”
So we went back to something that we loved and reworked it i tried to come up with a dirty bass line but it eluded me hence why i don’t play bass , we did two version of this and this is the radio friendly version . the live version really has a groove to it and will post that up on our soundcloud page in a few weeks
so on that note i’m outta here i have a heap of Guinness to get through after all it is a saturday night .
Things have a been a little slow round here and not much new music coming my way, but saying that the new Waxahatchee album arrived today and i just know that’s going to be so good . also having no mobile is fantastic its been a total detox from being on call to everyone . the down side is having to use my ipad for everything at the moment and that’s a rare thing i use normally avoid all apple products .
so i’m working on this playlist that i pick two songs from some of my albums and put them out there and its time to share with you now . this list will never stop growing so a quick check every now and then would be recommended

Mojave 3 is a firm all time favourite here and a little bit of me always hopes that they return with more amazing music . Spoon and Rafter was released on 22 September 2003 in the UK, and a day later in the US. After the break up of Slowdive in 95 Neil Halstead formed the birth of Mojave 3 and released 5 amazing albums
here is a new playlist vol 9 that’s been kicking around here enjoy it .
Well my new Thurston Moore record arrived and its what you expect from him . the release date is april 28th via carolineinternational.com
Shaped from former members of Yo La Tengo, The Human Switchboard and Peter Stanfel’s Bottlecaps, The Schramms have been a Hoboken and New York fixture since 1985.
Finding a place in the sun both in the U.S. and in Europe, they have become one of rock’s most respected and talented bands.
Dave Schramm can also be heard as a featured guitarist on current works by Richard Buckner, Freedy Johnston, Soul Asylum, The Replacements and Whiskeytown.
This Album establishes the depth and sophistication of these veteran song crafters. This time, they’ve enlisted J.D. Foster to produce. This release is tight, and precise. The songs belong together and make for a flowing, detailed and intriguing work – like a book you cannot put down.
The band is joined by such luminaries as Richard Buckner, Syd Straw and Jeb Loy Nichols who all share in the vocals and the atmosphere.
