  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 25/3/09

    The best new track at this week’s Bzangy was the superb ‘Standing On The Shoulders Of The Carcass Of John Mayer’ by Canadian Invasion. Who, of course, aren’t a Canadian band at all, they appear to be from Philadelphia. On their MySpace, they say they sound like Wilco, Spoon, The National and a host of…

  • Sound On Sound Cover Feature Wot I Wrote

    I’m very chuffed that I wrote the cover feature for this month’s issue of Sound On Sound, the best recording magazine in the world. My article is about how I went from being scared of modular synthesizers to finally buying my own. You can check out an excerpt by clicking here. My modular is the…

  • Paired Example Of Media Bias: NORTH KOREA = EVIL, USA = GOOD

    North Korean soldiers have detained two female US journalists, according to media reports. The reporters were arrested on Tuesday near a river on North Korea’s border with China, according to South Korean TV and newspaper reports. The journalists had apparently ignored warnings to stop filming in the area. (Source: BBC News) Okay, let’s start with…

  • Near The New Bridge At Night

    After the Mascot Fight gig, I was drawn inexorably, like a tubby moth, to the bright lights of the new bridge next to the Silk Mill. Click the pic above to see more shininess.

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 11/3/09

    Sorry for taking so long to post up last week’s playlist, I’ve been having quite bad tooth troubles. 🙁 Well, the best new track last Wednesday was Loney, Dear’s ‘Airport Surroundings.’ Just a great slice of indie/synth pop. Check out the new album, it’s grrrreat! The best old track was ‘Pruit Igoe & Prophecies’ by…

  • Spring Flowers And A Pebble

    It’s been a gorgeous morning. I went for a walk around Oakwood and, even though that was around 8am, it was already warm and fuzzy. it finally feels like spring is sprung! Click the pic for a gallery of floweryness!

  • Pug Chaser

    It’s been a bit grim on Bzangy today, a lot of news that I had to comment on that, frankly, makes me sad and angry. So, here’s a pug chaser. Hope it makes you smile as much as it does me! 😀

  • Binyam Mohamed: Victim Of US Torture Thanks To Britain

    A UK resident freed from Guantanamo Bay has said he would not have faced torture or extraordinary rendition but for British involvement in his case.

  • Why I Don’t Believe In The Death Penalty

    A man jailed 27 years ago for murdering a barmaid could be released from prison after DNA evidence was reviewed. Sean Hodgson, 57, is serving a life sentence for killing Teresa De Simone, 22. She was found strangled in her car in Southampton in December 1979. The case has now been sent to appeal over…

  • Sign This Petition!

    Retired senior police officer David Gilbertson has created an online petition against expanded police powers of arrest in the UK. The Serious and Organised Crime and Policing Act of 2005 removed the link between an imprisonable offence and the power of arrest, instead allowing police to arrest people for any offence whatsoever. People have since…

  • This Town Needs Guns, Best Endings, Lines In Sand, These Waves

    On Saturday night, I saw four lovely bands for four quid at The Vic. Result! First on were These Waves who just get better every time I see them and they were good to start with. I thought they really connected with the audience, no easy feat when you’re on first. But their effort paid…

  • Watchmen

    Yesterday, I went to see Watchmen. And I loved it! I was quite worried by some of the reviews I’d seen. Also that the running time was nearly three hours. Also that the squid was excised. But Watchmen, the major motion picture, is probably the most faithful comic to film adaptation I’ve yet seen. So…
