Top Five Zine

I came up with this idea a couple weeks back now to maybe start doing a zine, either printed or online, which is based around the idea of 'top five' lists.

I know thats its a complete High Fidelity rip but I've always found lists, and how other people's lists differ, very interesting.

If i get my act together, I will hopefully start doing this soon and it will feature bands, artists, general people and various other cool shit.

Plus I'm aching to start writing record reviews.

Peace and Love.

Buy the new Vic Chesnutt record "North Star Deserter".

These have shaped '08

Go forth.... and DRAW

This is a new exhibition showing right now at the StolenSpace gallery in Shoreditch and its really worth a visit. Basically, its a whole bunch of cool drawings by 300 different artists.

Here's the link. Check it out, yo:


Its been an age since I last updated this thing and I have nothing better to do at the moment so here goes.

This month I've been pretty static, spending most days just hanging out and listening to music but, my God, is it going by quick. This whole year has flown. It seems like only yesterday that I was seeing in the New Year with my cousins, fucked off my face and playing Guitar Hero. Good times.

Despite my recent laziness, I have started a new band which I'm pretty excited about because its completely different to any other band that I have ever been in before. At the moment its kind of got an A Silver Mt. Zion vibe to it but with faster parts. Although, in an ideal world, I would like to just rip off Pavement/Sonic Youth. Still, its keeping me relatively busy. Hopefully we'll have a name, finished songs and a site soon.

I'm going out to Austria for another little skiing adventure next week which should be amazing. I tried to get up photos from my last trip but, alas, I don't have a scanner and I am a retard when it comes to technology.... plus I only have a polaroid camera.

This month's plus list

- Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds "Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!"
- A Silver Mt. Zion "13 Blues For Thirteen Moons"
- Fucked Up "Year Of The Pig"
- Big Fish
- The 'Draw' exhibition
- Rome... hopefully.

This month's minus list

- Crash (i.e. the most sentimental piece of bullshit I have seen in a long time)
- Recent lack of dollar
