Thankyou to those whom attended last night ...

To be honest I have been a Mumford & Sons sceptic and hadn't even read through the material prior to last nights ''LINN LOUNGE'' event, though I have tried many times to enjoy them.

Last night changed all that and you got to give it to LINN, this is a great concept! 

It's easy to be cynical of an English band playing American music but as they express themselves, they are just playing the instruments they like and the music they like ... doing what they enjoy! For me that ''broke the ice'' and dropped my guard so I actually listened to the lyrical content, the musicianship, both individually and as a band, but what really hit me last night was ''wal'', he can really sing, he means it and he's going for it''.

You can kind of guess where this band is going so yip, I 'now' love 'Babel' but I'm super excited to see how they can develop ... bring on the next album!

YouTube let us down on one clip so here it is:

Day 06: My Top 10 albums of all time in no particular order ..

The first song I ''really'' learned to play on guitar was from Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here but their greatest album and surely an inclusion in anybodies top 10 is ''The Wall''

It's hard to believe 'a band' made this album and it's harder to believe that another band can make something as good as this in the future. Bands were better back in the day ... this is proof ...

There is no point me babbling on about it. Well .. Ok ... just a little bit 

''It's a complete life philosophy in a double album, it's all you need ... a passive education that leads you into thoughtful consideration of 'life' in society, how to chose your path and think about the implications of different 'paths' may have ... ''

May 'The Wall' will live forever ... 

For the record - ''Dark Side of The Moon'', as good as it is, is not in the same league ...

AVA Zara Premium - it also plays music!

Zara Preium (ZP) is a 2TB dedicated NAS (network storage) for music. But it's so much more ... here are some of the outstanding features:

- Machined from a solid piece of aluminium in a small, slimline chassis, it's as beautiful a piece of engineering that you can find in the HiFi world and it's not just about the looks. This solution offers high performance, shielding and near silent operation.
''If you own LINN KLIMAX, this is the perfect partner: high performance, similar made-from-solid solution/finish and even the same width''

- A discreet CD loader at the front of the box with  auto-Rip function with completely new software developed for absolute perfect ripping and correction for even damaged CD's plus of course internet sourced meta-data and cover art. So your existing CD collection is always available to be played on your network from the comfort of an iPad/android device; as is all the music you download, which can be Studio 24 Bit quality. 

- An integrated media server program that not only finds and catalogues your library on the ZP, but also searches other devices on your network and remembers them for next time. When you open, for example a laptop, that extra music simply pops up on your iPad or other control device ready to play. It seamlessly disappears when you remove that laptop from the network. The ZP also catalogues USB hard drives which can be simply attached with the multiple USB inputs on the back ... extra storage if required is that simple.

- The ZP is an APP controlled music-streamer with digital-out (spdif) direct to your HiFi. Just browse your libraries on your iPad tablet and play.  This works simultaneously with the storage facility of course.

TOP TIP! Use the ZP as an extra music zone in another room. Just add the insanely high performing, low cost  AVA Maestro (2995 Sek) & some good speakers like LINN Unik (4000 Sek), better still LINN Majik 109's (11450 Sek) and you have an amazing second room.

A short break from the Top 10 to make apologies ..

I apologise to the following artists whom never got into my Top 10. First I'd say that it may not be a reflection on your album but rather that the albums I have chosen

1. meant allot to me at special periods in my life that I was open to new influences.
2. After a conversation yesterday, I realise it's not just albums that meant allot at a particular time but albums that I have consistently and will again come back to.

It could also be that my taste in music is crap or that your album, though widely acclaimed or I wouldn't mention it at all, was ... laugh

Lets get started ... this could take time.

'ACDC'. O'm mannnnn ... I'm sorry. You are fantastic and so are your albums. My only excuse is as a teenager I just didn't get it or the people that did, whom were an unfortunite misserable small group where I was brough up. I get it now ....
'All About Eve'. O'h 'Marthas Harbour'
'Arctic Monkeys' ,,, In my opinion they are holding up UK music ... How good were they at the Olympic ceremony ... I love this Youtube clipp

'Bruce Springsteen'. Maeve O'Boyle would be angry with me if She knew I'd left you out.
'Big Country' ... Scottish heroes ... How could I?
'Beyonce', you might not think I was a fan but I am big time. Must be one of the best performers that has ever lived on this planet. If you are an aspiring 'Idol' or 'X-factor' then you know what you are aiming for - a talent so great it's not of this world! Bionce you are amazing!!
'Beautiful South' - I may have to reconsider this one. Consistent song writing of this caliber is just not normal, it shouldn't be possible. There are so many great songs, where do you start? I love this song ...

Beautiful South Woman In The Wall Lyrics


He was just a social drinker but social every night
He enjoyed a pint or two or three or four
She was just a silent thinker, silent every night
He'd enjoy the thought of killing her before
Well he was very rarely drunk but very rarely sober
And he didn't think the problem was his drink
But he only knew his problem when he knocked her over
And when the rotting flesh began to stink
Cry freedom for the woman in the wall
Cry freedom for she has no voice at all
I hear her cry all day, all night 
I hear her voice from deep within the wall 

The Big Dish, Did they ever play live? In my teens I literally hammered them .. played them to death! In the days before I seen the light with 'Deacon Blue' (I hated them at first & I mean hated), The Big Dish were my refuge.

Amazon AutoRip service gives out free digital copies of CDs


A move in the right direction ... hopefully leading to your own personal CD or even 24 Bit cloud server based on the music you bought ... Love it!

Day 05: My Top 10 albums of all time in no particular order ..

I have seen The Pogues many times and been listening to them as long as I have been buying my own music. The best Pogues concert, actually it was a Shane McGowan & The Popes concert, I went to was in Belfast in a small club called Aunt Sally's (Think that was the name). 

Shane was up to His usual trick of drinking on stage, on this ocasion a pint of strange coloured liquid ... who knows what it was. He did however hold it together enough to remember His text and unusually deliver a perfect performance. It must have been about 10 or 12 years ago and He could still actually sing pretty good.

You gotta remember Belfast is pretty much home ground for The Pogues and the audience of overenthusiastic young Irishmen & Women went simply crazy. If only iphones were around in those days to record it. There was not a safe corner in the house and at least half of all alcohol bought from the bar was flung in the air. Multiple boddies were lifted and travelled simultaneously accross the crowd  in random directions ... a few being flung onto the stage and simply flung back on to the crowd by the ''local Belfast security'' (Khhhmnnn .. local IRA ... enough said about them ...)

Remember this club was not big ... it was complete mayhem in a confined space ... if it wasn't the amazing specticle it was and so good, you couldn't let yourself miss it, no matter the risk, the safest thing to do would have been to get out of there. I stayed and it was worth it, easily in the top 5 of concerts I have been to in my entire life!

From SPOTIFY: The Pogues, Rum, Sodomy & The Lash

So to the album ... with a name like that it had better be a great album and that's just what it is! Amazing song writing ... some of the best ever. Some from Shane and some old Irish songs that from that album forward, Shane simply owned.

A mixture of Punk rock and Irish folk music ... who would have beleived it would work? On a low volume listen, it's easy to think it's just another folk album with some swearing and rough text. Play it loud in a packed Irish Bar and you realise this is as Punk as Punk gets!

Above are a few photo's of the young Shane, His ear dribbling with blood when people started biting each other at an early Clash concert. This was clearly a young man seeking experiences out of the ordinary and I guess that is exactly what Shane McGowan is ... an extraordinary man ... an extraordinary mad Irishman! He has probably overindulged in everything you can overindulge in so you could say He is just a drunken, doped out monkey ... a spectacle! If the saying ''Better to burn out than fade away'' applies to anyone, it applies to Shane. You'd have to be nuts to respect Him for His lifestyle but there is something about  attractive about someone seeking destruction and going for it ...

Even when writing this I can almost cry ... I guess that's His legacy ... He touched people with His behaviour, His hideous looks and most importantly, His work ... His music! Fairytale Of New York with Chirsty MacColl will live as long as songs like The Ghetto or New York New York. It's a timeless classic and ensures His legacy but there are so many other songs from Shane deserving similar, wider-public acclamation.

The song on the above Youtube video 'The Old Main Drag'  is in my opinion, one of the best written songs of all time. When you look at the photo's of the young man above, see Him in later years performing and hear about 'Shane' ... you realise, He is writing from rather extraordinary personal experience and it's real .. graphically real! Had He been anything other than the crazy wild Man He is, these songs wouldn't exist.

I love Shane McGowan, respect Him and I certainly don't feel sorry for Him. Definitely worth a place in my Top 10! All the songs are crackers with ''Sally McLennan'' a close second but just for it's hard hitting text and slow, almost dragging timing that leaves you feeling you are scraping along the same gutter streets He writes about ... it's gotta be 

      ''The Old Main Drag''
When I first came to london I was only sixteen
With a fiver in my pocket and my ole dancing bag
I went down to the dilly to check out the scene
And I soon ended up on the old main drag

There the he-males and the she-males paraded in style
And the old man with the money would flash you a smile
In the dark of an alley you'd work for a fiver
For a swift one off the wrist down on the old main drag

In the cold winter nights the old town it was chill
But there were boys in the cafes who'd give you cheap pills
If you didn't have the money you'd cajole or you'd beg
There was always lots of tuinol on the old main drag

One evening as I was lying down by leicester square
I was picked up by the coppers and kicked in the balls
Between the metal doors at vine street I was beaten and mauled
And they ruined my good looks for the old main drag

In the tube station the old ones who were on the way out
Would dribble and vomit and grovel and shout
And the coppers would come along and push them about
And I wished I could escape from the old main drag

And now I'm lying here I've had too much booze
I've been shat on and spat on and raped and abused
I know that I am dying and I wish I could beg
For some money to take me from the old main drag

Day 04: My Top 10 albums of all time in no particular order ..

An outstanding album that just grabbed everybodies attention ... even the Americans started listenning.

From Spotify: Portishead – Dummy

(Please open Spotify while you read this if you want to listen inbetween reading)

When you think of Northern England, where I was studying and living at the time, you have to appreciate there was a huge North-South divide when it came to Indie music.

People from the North never listenned to anything South of Birmingham ,,, yeh there were exceptions for older music ... for Paul Weller, The Mod-father and I guess some others but that was generally how it was. When it came to Oasis & Blur, well my loyalty was firmly placed in the Oasis camp!

So while I was happily playing The Stone Roses, Ocean Colour Scene, Oasis, Happy Mondays & so on at home ,,, I was however, sneaking off to House clubs at least a few times a week like Gatecrasher (just down the road), Rise @ The Leadmill ... trips to Pure in Edinburgh & Cream in Liverpool. Amazing tapes from Paul Oakenfold were piling up in my room and Underwold were accompanying me on long journey's.

Pretty much everyone had a copy of Massive Attack Blue Lines so you can't say anyone was really holding too fixed to their indie haircuts.

Tracy Thorn, previously a favourite of mines with nicy-nicy 'Everything but the Girl' sung on the Massive Attack second album,  Protection. Everybody kind of stopped and asked themselves ''what is going on in Bristol?''. Tracy had been transformed to a club diva and even 'Everything but the girl' released this new music genre with 'Walking Wounded'. What a contrast!

It was however Portishead with Dummy that blew my mind. SERIOUSLY ... WHAT IS GOING ON DOWN SOUTH?

When I first heard Southerners ''Radiohead'', I knew Northerners, Oasis were dead ... it was just so much more inteligent music. When I heard Portishead I just couldn't beleive it ... it was so good. I was just finishing off my degree at Sheffield University when I started using my climbing skills to do bridge inspections ... I'll put a photo up later today! By some miraculous fate we got the contract to inspect all of Isambard Kingdom Brunel bridges in the south ... more specifically BRISTOL :)

Hanging off amazing structures during the day was followed up by visiting amazing clubs at night. Portishead, Tricky & Massive Attack played every night ... well not actually them but there were literally stacks of bands playing Live with similar style and they were really, really good! The clubs looked amazing ... it was like visiting another planet. So what was going on in Bristol ... the answer: everything that was good was going on ... what a scene!

Portishead Dummy just made the Bristol scene impossible to ignore ... what an album and well deserving of it's place in my Top 10! You could release it tomorrow and people would still feel it's modern and new ... brilliant!

Day 03: My Top 10 albums of all time in no particular order ..

Everything Has already been said and written about this album. Many would claim that this was not there best album but they are wrong ... laugh ...

It's a fantastic journey and I can only imagine it took an enormous ammount of work to create. The first song I heard from Simon & Garfunkel to really grab me was ''Feelin Grovy'', was not actually on this album but Bookends was the first album I owned myself from the amazing duo. The text on this album provides amazing imagery of the USA ... actually inspires me to jump on a Greyhound bus some day and do some people watching.

I love this song, you can play here from YouTube. ''Old Friends''


From Wiki

The songs

The first side of the album is musically and thematically unified: it begins (and ends) with the brief guitar piece "Bookends Theme", evoking a "time of innocence", which moves immediately to "Save the Life of My Child" with the sound of a distorted bass synthesizer in the same key, played by co-producer John Simon and set up by Bob Moog himself.[5][6] The song features vocal asides and sound effects including synthesizer sounds, disjointed choral voices and a sample from their single "The Sounds of Silence". This crossfades into "America", a tale of travelling young lovers that contrasts with the estrangement expressed next in "Overs". "Voices of Old People" is as it says, a collection of taped conversations leading into "Old Friends", an idyll of old age with powerful strings and horns, now stark, now sweet, that connect by a single held note to the final, vocal version of the "Bookends Theme". The whole side marks successive stages in life, the theme serving as literal bookends to the life cycle.
The second side features the single "Mrs. Robinson", famous for its inclusion in the film The Graduate and the accompanying soundtrack album. "Overs", "Punky's Dilemma", and "A Hazy Shade of Winter" were also written by Simon for The Graduate soundtrack, but the film's producers rejected them.[citation needed] The song is driven by congas and overdubbed guitar figures. "Fakin' It" and "Punky's Dilemma" also make use of sound effects, percussion loops and an interlude in an English shop featuring the voice of singer Beverley Martyn in the former, background voices and someone stamping downstairs and slamming a door over the walking bass of the latter. "A Hazy Shade of Winter" has an electric rock sound, seguing suddenly into the intimacy of tinkling bells and quiet finger-picking for "At the Zoo".
The record's brevity reflects its concise and perfectionistic production. The team spent over 50 studio hours recording "Punky's Dilemma",[7] for example, and re-recorded vocal parts, sometimes note by note, until they were satisfied. Simon's guitar parts are intricate, percussion is carefully invented and keyboards and electric bass introduced with economy and taste.
A 2001 CD reissue of the album includes two bonus tracks: "You Don't Know Where Your Interest Lies" (originally issued as a B-side to the "Fakin' It" single) and a demo version of "Old Friends".
The "Bookends Theme" was featured during the opening scene of the film Girl, Interrupted, and "Bookends" in the denouement of the film 500 Days of Summer. The song was also included on the Stacey Kent album The Boy Next Door (2003).

Day 02: My Top 10 albums of all time in no particular order ..

Or from Spotify: The Stone Roses – Stone Roses

The Stone Roses were credited for making the transition, or bridging the gap, between rock and dance music. For me the softly singing Ian Brown with literally magical lyrics and trance, rhythmic music behind Him with a touch of everything from rock, slow drum and bass (if that exists) to funk and house ... all achieved from a four piece band was so irresistible I literally was in love or at least felt I was. It's not that I looked up to the band or it's members or that I even cared particularly who they were. I wasn't even hanging out with similarly affected people or talking about it, it was just an experience ... I just got hypnotised! If it's possible to imagine what it's like to hear ''The Pied Piper'' and just follow behind in a happy trance then that's what The Stone Roses played - Pied Piper Music ... and not just for me; half of the UK were following behind me in a similar state, nobody really talking about it ... at their high point I listened to almost nothing else but at the time couldn't even tell you the name of a single person in the band. 

I should have been paying more attention and wouldn't have missed The Spike Island gig but that was the thing, with The Stone Roses on your mind, you were not paying attention to anything, not even them.

In many ways they are the English version of The Doors, not that they had the same sound but both bands were capable of connecting to the soul of any teenager making their way into the world. The Stone Roses weren't selling an album ... when you opened up that CD or vinyl and started playing it, it was as strong a drug as anything being smoked or swallowed at their concerts.

I remember an 8 hour bus journey from Scotland to London with the Stone Roses on repeat on my Sony Walkman ... I just couldn't get enough of it, listening over and over and over, each time getting more from the music. Funnily enough I remember another London bus trip with trip with Nenah Cherry and Soul to Soul tapes ... another story!

I'm not known for dancing but when the Stone Roses played in a club, no matter how pretty the girl I was talking to or if I just ordered a beer in a 20 minute que, I went straight to the dance floor and entered into a zombie like state in my own world, swaying my head from side to side combined with some kind of funk/house dance. You had no inhibitions because you weren't actually there, nobody could see you and you weren't sharing the experience, you were sneaking off and doing it yourself ... on a packed dance floor in your own little world.

Are, or were, The Stone Roses the best band in the world? Quite possibly!

''Info from Wikipedia

Debut album and breakthrough success (1989–1991)

In 1988 and early 1989 The Stone Roses recorded their debut album at Battery Studios and Konk Studios in London and Rockfield Studios in Wales, produced by Leckie.[9] The first single for Silvertone, "Elephant Stone", made little impact, and in early 1989 the band's performances outside the north-west were still attracting small audiences.[48] "Made of Stone" received more press attention and was picked up for airplay by DJ Richard Skinner on his late night Radio One show, but peaked at number ninety on the UK Singles Chart. The Stone Roses was released in April[49][50] / May 1989,[51][52] initially to mostly positive[51] reviews, and entered the UK Albums Chart at number 32 in mid-May, the highest position it would reach that year.[53][54] This was followed with the single "She Bangs the Drums", which gave them a top forty UK hit, and a number one on the UK Independent Chart, and by that point they were receiving much greater press attention and were selling out shows across the country.[55][56][57] The band gained widespread notoriety when, one minute into a live 1989 TV performance on the BBC's The Late Show, the power failed, prompting Ian Brown to repeatedly roar "Amateurs!" at Tracey MacLeod.[58] Later in 1989 the band released a double A-side single, "Fools Gold/What the World Is Waiting For", which reached number eight on the UK Singles Chart in November.[59] Originally intended as a B-side, "Fools Gold" quickly became the Roses' most famous song and a performance of it on Top of the Pops cemented their national fame.[60] It gave them their first top ten hit and the album rose to number nineteen in the chart early the following year.

We're the most important group in the world, because we've got the best songs and we haven't even begun to show our potential yet.
– Ian Brown - NME - December 1989[61]
The group won four NME Readers poll awards that year; Band of the Year, Best New Band, Single of the Year (for "Fools Gold") and Album of the Year (for their debut album).[62] The Stone Roses is now considered one of the great British albums,[63] although the band themselves were unhappy with the sound on the album, Squire describing it as "twee" and not "fat or hard enough".[64]
The Stone Roses' outdoor concert at Spike Island in Widnes on 27 May 1990 was attended by some 27,000 people. The event, considered a failure at the time due to sound problems and bad organisation, has become legendary over the years as a "Woodstock for the baggy generation".[65] In mid 2010 footage of the concert was published on Youtube. The Roses followed Spike Island with another big event, at Glasgow Green.
By July the band had released their final single for Silvertone, "One Love", which reached number four in the UK singles chart,[59] their highest placing yet. It was to be the Roses' last original release for four years as they entered a protracted legal battle to terminate their five-year contract with Silvertone, unhappy with how they had been paid by the label.[66][67] Silvertone owners Zomba Records took out an injunction against the band in September 1990 to prevent them from recording with any other label, but in May 1991 the court sided with the group, which was then released from its contract. The Stone Roses subsequently signed with Geffen Records (garnering a million-pound advance for their next record) and began work on their second album.[68] However, Silvertone appealed against the ruling, delaying the record for another year.[69]

My top 10 of all time albums in no particular order ..

Or from Spotify: Transvision Vamp – Velveteen

DAY 01: Though many an old favourite has fallen at the way side over the years, I just can't drop this one ... it's just too good!

Transvision Vamp: Velveteen.

Wendy James, in my opinion was probably the sexiest singer ever ... extremely short cut off jeans, cheaky Twiggy looks and a vulnerable but slightly husky voice. The album Velveteen is pure gold, easily as epic and dramatic as the likes of Meta Loaf - Bat Out Of Hell, culminating in the outrageous last track of the same name ... Velveteen.

The production is also amazing - it's all about the voice with the music just puffing Her up when need be a only taking over in the quiet parts between Her singing ... instruments flow in, out and over each other; one instrument starting a ''sound'' and another taking it over and continuing it seamlessly.

A little dramatic, Yes but it's also a masterpiece ... I love it!

Happy New Year!

Good news for Gothenburg stadium rock band Selsius who got signed by Gordon McNeil (Gogobot) label Toytownrecords

Selsius played here in our shop last summer and gave us our largest audience to date with just over 100. Big congratulations to them. Selsius fly to the UK to record the album in February.

The lead singer Jakob Hjulström is son to  Niklas Hjulström whom had a hit with I'm Burning featured on the Swedish TV drama, Glappet, which coincidently my Wife acted in. Small world!

Great guys, very talented and I suspect they are going to do really well in the UK!
