Entry #34 – Magical Mystery Tour (a.k.a One Trip to Albert Dock Later…)

What’s there to say that hasn’t already been said about the Beatles? Sweet F.A. It’s been over 60 years since they evolved from the Quarrymen and they’re still hyped as heroes of music who shaped and reshaped the industry to their heart’s content in the 60s. We all know about them, it’s impossible not toContinue reading “Entry #34 – Magical Mystery Tour (a.k.a One Trip to Albert Dock Later…)”

Entry #33 – Heathen Chemistry (a.k.a Up Go the Shoulders of Giants)

I’ve defended Standing on the Shoulder of Giants on this blog and continue to do so to this day. I thought that in spite of including some subpar songs over underrated corkers, that album was still a good effort and an interesting change in direction for Oasis. Sadly though it didn’t stick, as in theContinue reading “Entry #33 – Heathen Chemistry (a.k.a Up Go the Shoulders of Giants)”

And conversely the band themselves went onContinue reading “Entry #32 – The La’s (Mike Hedges Version) (a.k.a Same Proverbial, Different Day)”

Entry #31 – The La’s (a.k.a The Forgotten Four)

History has unfortunately dictated the La’s as one trick ponies, as the only song of theirs that you still hear these days is the bittersweetly romantic There She Goes. And, of course, they only have that one self-titled album to their name. Which is a crying shame because the La’s were a band with soContinue reading “Entry #31 – The La’s (a.k.a The Forgotten Four)”

Entry #30 – More of What I’ve Been Listening to Lately (a.k.a At least one entry per month, dammit!)

So there’s been another lengthy gap between now and my last entry. Unfortunately, I’ve ended up having one of those months. Nothing depressing or anything like that, but quite hectic; it all started off with a nice holiday in Sussex seeing family for the first time in nearly a year, then I returned home andContinue reading “Entry #30 – More of What I’ve Been Listening to Lately (a.k.a At least one entry per month, dammit!)”
