Relaunching soon

We’ve been quiet here for a few months, but will relaunch at the end of this week. February’s theme will be “Underrated”. If you want to contribute a post, work out how to email me, or leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.

Here are the most popular posts we published in 2012:

1. Raincoat Optimist: What happens if songs become offensive over time?

2. Kellie Strom: First LPs, flamenco dancers and sea shanties, musicals and clowns

3. Bob: For Nowruz

4. Bob: Leviticus

5. Bob: First & last: cassette albums: From E Street to the Copacabana

6.  Kellie Strom: First and Last EPs, Country Guitar Vol. 6 and Gunpowders

A couple of those come from our First and Last series, which will continue as an occassional feature. Some highlights of that series were TNC on camp metal, how Rusty Fruit Juice became a smack addict rent boy, the Poor Mouth’s journey fromglam rocking freckled nine year old to art rocking Prestwick Airport employee, Radiator with the Pixies in sunny Stoke, and Martin Black from puppy love to pocket fishrmen. The thing I loved about the series was how it revealed the social history of music recording technology and music retail consumption, but then that’s me.
