Anywho, I am digressing. This is not a Doctor Who blog, nor a TV blog exactly. And this certainly isn't the post for it. My trademark waffles though. You know what to expect by now. On a side note I do want to work on an article about music in television. More so the great bands and music featured on many of the US dramas. I won't focus exclusively on US shows of course but thanks to many of them I have come to some amazing acts over the years. Programmes such as Smallville, The Vampire Diaries and the like. Lots more but I'll save waffling on about them until the actual post itself.
I also have Band of Horses to come next month but not before I've been to about four gigs (at least) this month. Starting next Monday with Luke Jackson in Rugby, followed by Dry The River in Cambridge the week after. Then comes Blair Dunlop in Milton Keynes on 21st before ending the month with Gilmore & Roberts in Wellingborough. Somewhat quite a busy month but I'm loving it. I also have a The Scholars gig to fit into the schedule either this month or next. Or even both because to be fair that would be mighty fine! I shall get what reviews up I can although with all the other stuff they will probably be on the briefer side than you're used to from me. I heard those cheers from you at the back. Ssshh! I also received invites today for a special Bellowhead gig on 15th October and for their album launch show at the Water Rats on 17th October. Both these are in London of course which means I will not be able to make it. I'm really stoked I've been asked though and if I could work either of them into my schedule I so would. Again, please any potential sponsors or employers do contact me if you'd like to offer me a job doing this professionally and I will cover such events for you.
I shall now sush a while and get on with this blogcast! Just one more thing before I do crack on - please slap me hard for not having ever downloaded Firefox before now. It is so good!
Explain what Wired, is about?
: Lyrics I write about are normally based on a personal experience or an onlookers view to a situation. I try to, on the most part get away from telling the listener what I'm thinking and instead provide them with a story or an idea that they can make fit into their world. It always pleases me when people explain their idea of a song I've written even if it's not what I've envisaged. its boring to be told what to think, right? Wired is about how someone gets under your skin and knows how to push your buttons. “You know how I’m wired” refers to the fact that everyone feels in control but when someone can control you – just how hard it is to escape them and the effect they have on your life..

Julie Lamb well and truly snook up on this playlist. She tweeted me a link to her song Undone which really caught my attention. There's something infectious about the sound on offer here. Something that got me wanting to hear more. Listening to more tunes I have not been disappointed with the likes of Trippin The Light Fantastic seeming to marry together so many styles I've enjoyed over the years. There's a bluesy soul there with a little bit of jazz too (*does jazz hands* - no really you can take out a contract if you see me do jazz hands in public, I quite understand). What I love about Julie is the variety as well because whereas Trippin The Light is a gentle(ish) bluesy affair, she leaps into a more rockier sound with Time Flies. Awesome stuff and I look forward to hearing more in the future. She is most definitely worth you checking out. You can grab a copy of the album Trippin' The Light from Julie's bandcamp page >>here<<.
To keep me satisfied for the moment there is the video above, filmed in
I have no idea what the above title is about. On An On we go though leading me right into the first of my extra bits. I will however, attempt to be briefer than the last couple of blogcasts otherwise I'll still be here come next weekend.
Syd Arthur - NEW SINGLE - Dorothy - Out November 12th
This latest original song, Mary May is every bit as poignant and emotive as what has come before but each and every time Luke astounds me with his ability to really hit home the message through the music and lyrics he has written. I am super busy as you know (I do keep on about it, but it's true) but I will get together a quick review of next Monday's gig to post on the blog.

Until next time then peoples and tweeples, peace to you all!
