This is one of my most favourite songs ever, it is epic, an act of musical genius. I thought it was a good accompaniment to the … Continue reading The Daily Channel – Good Medicine
I am no good before a certain time of the day. It used to be that up until midday any decisions I made were terrible based on the awful mood I’d be in as my brain and my body tried in a desperate attempt to adjust to being awake again.

After a small amount of thought I have decided that it’s time to strip this blog back to its original nuts and bolts. When I began blogging I had no idea what blogging really was, or what I was doing. … Continue reading It’s time to strip
This is a killer performance by legendary Prog Rock band Jethro Tull. Absolutely genius musicians and performers the lot of them, and tight as a gnat’s chuff as they say around here.

I’ve been singing again, and I plan to do it a bit more often than I have been in recent years. I used to be semi-pro and do the pub and club circuits. I have performed on many a stage since my early teens, but I haven’t sung in a long while, so this is me sounding a little rusty. Hopefully it won’t make your ears bleed too much 😉 I love this song, originally sung by Oleta Adams. So I thought I’d relearn it and do a little recording so you lot can hear what I’ve been up to. … Continue reading M’s Musical Moments – ‘Get Here’ (Oleta Adams version)
