*Links Removed*


So I posted the new arctic monkeys yesterday, I listened to it once, had an opinion, thought that I might have a better one after a second listen but then decided to listen to the rumble strips instead. I'm not into reviewing newly released albums because it's like forcing an opinion on someone before they really get a chance to hear it properly for themselves, like loads of people won't hear rumble strips "welcome to the walk alone" because it got a 4/10 in nme where, for example, wild beasts got 9/10 this week when they just happen to be in with this whole animal name trippy flavour of the month thing. So yes, I shant be reviewing it, I reserve this for live gigs that not everyone had the opportunity to be at. I have an opinion sure but ya know.

Anyway bottom line is I haven't posted much due to work/gigs/illness and any music finding energy I have going towards the indie/rock playlist but I feel like i'm all better now and want to review all the great gigs I've got in august and maybe even a retrospective on truck so I'll get this up and going.
