    yeah it's a great album. hopefully will get sent out between xmas and new year

    On a less cool note, went out to a Christmas 'do' at our local yesterday, really top entertaining show, 50/60's rock n roll with a few crimbo songs (not my usual fare, but my missus loves it). A packed pub, a few beers and loads of folk having fun, really enjoyed a great party band.

    in short, i love/like all of this stuff and wouldn't put it out there if i didn't.

    i don't think mainstream exists any more to be honest but most of that list or stuff like it I think you would hear on radio 6 and so it has an audience.
    and the list is not particularly edgy tbh. finding interesting stuff can be time consuming so you get lazy
    i think 8 bands on that list have featured on previous year cds so even I embrace familiarity if i like it enough.

    yep, good article.
    mainstream has always been generally shit anyway.

    Just picked up the latest Judas Priest - Firepower.

    Oh my God. It absolutely kills. Completely fucking brilliant.

    You really do. Weird to have no KK there, and obvs Glenn is sick and struggling to play, but holy shit. THE RIFFS, THE SOLOS, THE PRODUCTION, THE SOUND OF HALFORD.

    It's their best since Painkiller, maybe even since Defenders of the Faith.

    Saw Doves in Birmingham (Perry Park) last summer, good to have them back on the live circuit. Great live band.

    Watched Bombay Bicycle Club in Oxford last night.

    Good gig. Pleased to see them back and back on form. The new album has a proper old school BBC vibe to it.

    I saw them in Nottingham in November and they played through the whole of their debut album and a few of the newer ones to finish.

    Was never their biggest fan but they're a good live band.

    in the early 2000s the great eastern was my sunday morning bad hangover choice of music.
    after a while i couldn't listen to it at any time without feeling ill and so stopped completely.
    think i'd be ok with it now.

    Stunning video, headcam footage of cliff divers. The bit at 03:00 mins takes your breath away.

    Rage Against The Machine confirmed headliners for Reading Festival this year.

    Also, new tracks released yesterday from Enter Shikari & New Found Glory. Wasn't a bad Monday all in all!

    New Sylosis album is immense, I expect Paddy to fap himself unconscious after the first listen.

    Still listen to this regularly, absolute game changer for me in musical style when I first heard it all those years ago round my mates house

    The Dave album, Psychodrama, is brilliant. For those who didn't see it, here's his performance of 'Black' from the Brits last week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXLS2IzZSdg
