Re: Counting Crows advice!

I'd also suggest that after listening to album 1 through 3 that you listen to some of their live albums. What Counting Crows do better than any other band is the art of song arrangement. They just completely reinterpret their songs live and it's brilliant. It does mean that if you see them live, you...

Here's mine! It's a collection of music reviews and interviews. It also has a few political opinion pieces. I hope to do more of that kind of stuff. :) http://clara-cullen.tumblr.com/

Re: Politics/Wembley

I think Penn Jillette talks about this really well in a video he did for Big Think. He basically is saying that people should stop using huge damning generalisations like "all *insert any political ideology* is evil" and instead explain why that ideology is wrong using open debate.

Re: Jim Lockey & The Solemn Sun

Reviewed the album for punktastic.com It's incredible- definite album of the year contender (if we can speak of such things so soon into 2012!)

Re: Non-Frank Gigs

Saw Henry Rollins tonight, he was fantastic! His show lasts nearly 3 hours, so is definitely worth every penny paid! I also managed some how to snag an interview with him next week(goes to show how great his DIY ethic is to say yes to an unknown student journo like me!) I now have the daunting prosp...

Saw both of Frank's sets. They were both great in their own ways. I saw a lot of the bands on the mainstage try and do the whole "get down and jump" thing, by far Frank was the most successful in getting people to actually do it! And I can say that as I was near the middle/back section of the crowd ...
