Django Django

Some of you, my dear readers, have asked for more music stuff on the blog (you know who you are) and of course I will obey. I’ve been struggling a bit to get inspired on the music front since being in Hong Kong, there’s few good bands touring here and I haven’t been to a … Continue reading

“Blunderbuss” is out!

So we all know I love Jack White. I’ve been on about how I discovered the White Stripes before. Yesterday his first solo album, “Blunderbuss”, came out. I still haven’t heard the whole thing, only the two first singles, but like what I’ve heard so far. However, I’m not sure if it matches up to … Continue reading

Coachella

It’s rumoured to have the most beautiful crowd of all the festivals, and looking at the photos from Coachella I would totally agree with that. So many cool outfits! My friend who was there last week also confirmed this. What I like is that people don’t follow all the rules. What you would see at … Continue reading

Under the White influence

Last night, a Friday night, I was in bed with a fever, drinking Lemsip, writing job applications and generally feeling uninspired. The good old fashion blogs weren’t doing anything for me. No, to get my inspiration back I needed something real. Only some MIND BLOWING MUSIC would do. MIND BLOWING MUSIC, as in The White … Continue reading

Friday suggestion: The Shins

Just giving you a heads up that the new The Shins album, “Port of morrow”, is out! And it’s brilliant. It’s their first album since 2007’s “Wincing the night away” and it’s been too too long. That album really reminds me of student days, reading for exams in Manchester. This one is a good follow … Continue reading

Clock Opera – “Man made”

UK band Clock Opera is out with a new sweet tune – and a pretty cool video to accompany it. Awkward storyline, but beautiful images and a cool model. Their new album, “Ways to forget”, is out on 23rd of April on Moshi Moshi/Island Records.

Bringing the Hacienda to Hong Kong

Later tonight I’m seeing Greg Wilson DJ at Kee Club here in Hong Kong. He used to play at the legendary Hacienda in Manchester back in the 80s and 90s. A great time for music in the industrial city. I’ve read tons of books on Hacienda and the Manc music scene and while living there … Continue reading
