  • Remember Gaza Peace Demo

    A couple of Saturdays ago, I went on a peace demo that was all about remembering the terrible suffering sustained in Gaza in the recent Israeli attacks, attacks that are even now being investigated as war crimes. The day was warm and dry, the protestors optimistic and passionate. There was no hatred, just a tremendous…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 20/5/09

    Tonight’s best new track was Recordkingz‘ ‘Keep On.’ Just a supreme slice of hip hop. Head nodding brilliance. Check out the album, ‘Heavyweight’ is you’re at all into your hip hop. Ace. The best old track was Devo’s ‘It’s Not Right.’ I’ve probably had a Devo song as best old tune before but fuckit, they’re…

  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 6/5/09

    Tonight’s best new track was ‘Endless Love’ by The Fresh & Onlys. It just rips right in there, all Vaselines swagger with a touch of Beat Happening rockabillyness. Lovely stuff! The best old track was ’93 ‘Til Infinity’ by Souls Of Mischief. Makes me feel old remembering when I heard this for the first time.…

  • Bzangy Groink First Podcast!

    Ahhh… Today, I assembled the gear you see above and did my first ever Bzangy Groink podcast! It’s a truncated version of Wednesday night’s playlist (which’ll be up shortly!) where I concentrate on the new artists. I only play clips of the songs as I think I’d be on dodgy legal ground if I played…

  • US Terrorist Bombing Kills 100+ Afghans

    Hundreds of people have taken to the streets in Farah in western Afghanistan in protest at the deaths of civilians in US air strikes earlier this week. Witnesses said the crowd chanted “death to America, death to the invaders”, and demanded US forces leave Afghanistan. (Source: BBC News) So, while Obama and his cronies are…
