An interesting and considered take on all of this business from Sam Harris back in June. A long listen, but well worth a couple of hours of your time if you're concerned about what's happening and can ...

In my first band back in 1988/89. We we're a bunch of 6 chancers with one musician amongst us. We took the piss and were called Hey Presto (it's wee wee). We nicked riffs and basslines form everywhere ...

I loved Christopher Hitchens and lament that we don't have his wit and intelligence to shout down the likes of Trump and the wokers today. He'd make short thrift of them. I even like his brother altho ...

Can't agree with you Imani, but I respect your generosity to them. For me their last great album was The Rise & Fall and their last great single, Michael Caine. They'll always be my first love and ...
