Mighty Mighty And The Ten Best Twee Songs Ever!

Mighty Mighty are virtually unknown, here in the U.K, although their brittle-boned love songs have found a home in Japan. ‘Is There Anyone Out There For Me’ is, perhaps, the most tender-hearted indie song to emerge from the C- 86 era, although there is plenty of competition from the likes of The Wedding Present and The Servants.

A Darker Side of V-Day Through Anti-Love Songs

Hebron, the debut album from Pontypridd based folk/pop combo Climbing Trees, has been released to wide acclaim in Wales, with the band benefiting greatly from the imaginative support of BBC Radio Wales over the past 12 months.

Al Lewis Christmas Show, Featuring Jodie Marie

Houdini Dax

Richard Buckner

Musician’s Survival Guide For The Road Warrior – Part I – Basic Tips

Four years ago my band was playing local gigs in Utah. Due to Utah’s bizarre liquor laws and night club restrictions it was basically an expensive hobby. We decided to focus on writing and recording original music to send out of state, when suddenly we were offered some gigs in Wyoming that paid more than double what Utah clubs were paying, plus lodging and food. We decided to postpone the original project in order to make some extra money. Little did we know that this offer would turn into four years of touring.
