We went to Wembley to see Coldplay last weekend and they do put on a brilliant show.

I don't dislike Coldplay and think they have written some good songs, but I can never shake the notion the songs would be even better performed by/sung by someone else.

Managed to poach the new Michael Kiwanuka album for 99p the other day. A brilliant antidote to all the shit in the "singles" charts and I'd have happily paid double that 99p for the first track on its own, it's epic.

I don't often listen to albums in full any more, I prefer a good shuffle. (Oo-er)

However, upon firing up Spotify on my way home, I happened upon Word Gets Around by Stereophonics. I genuinely forgot how bloody good that album is, I used to listen to it daily when I was at Uni and for a few years afterwards, then they released increasingly shit dad-rock dirges and I kind of forgot about the band. More than 10 years has passed since I last listened to this album and I remembered every single lyric, every melody - I could even still sing along to More Life In A Tramp's Vest, which my first band used to cover. There isn't a bad track on it, simple as that. A great test of an album's quality is whether you can listen to it start to finish without skipping a track. This is one of them.

Not bad for a 19 year old album.

(It's not all about metal in Blarno world...)

Yep.  A Thousand Trees is my favourite from that album.  I like the next album, Performance And Cocktails, too - but agree with you after that.  I bought the next two and then gave up on them.

Performance And Cocktails has about 3 good tracks - Bartender And The Thief being the best.

I've just bought the Crossroads Revisited album by Clapton et al. All the best bits from the Crossroads festivals. Highly recommended if you like blues/rock.

I have that Stereophoncs album too. Good stuff.

I saw them around the time that album was coming out. They were a support band for James. I've carried on buying the albums and they're very variable. Thought JEEP was average, liked YGGTTCB (and still do), next two were OK but nowt special and same goes for all the others bar Graffiti On The Train which is a grower. Best thing to do is make a compilation for the car with all the good uns!

I have called time on God's Hotrod. I've taken too long to get my arse into gear and I'm not sure I even have the time or drive to get anything done now.

I'm not cut out to be a band leader, I'm far happier joining an established band and throwing my ideas in there. Maybe I'll audition again, it's been 10 years since I last did that.

I'm happier in the background making noise than being the focal point making a tit of myself.

Thunder are fucking amazing. I have tried, and failed, many times to cover Love Walked In. I just don't know how Danny Bowes can hit those notes and hit them square in the bollocks.

I bought Back Street Symphony when it came out, and the second album too.   Saw them in the early 90s supporting Queensryche.  The first album still stands up today in my opinion, the second is patchy but still excellent in parts (Empty City springs to mind).

There were some excellent British vocalists around that time in bands who never made it big.  I'd recommend FM's Steve Overland, and Neville McDonald who was in Kooga and then Skin.

I have just sorted myself out with some drum programming software. I have already started writing riffs for Sphincteral Twitch. Oddly, writing lyrics and melodies for Death Metal isn't that hard - it helps that I'm good at childish toilet humour. No album, just an EP - 6 songs at most.

Song titles floating around at present:

Disastrous Rectal Misfortune
Emergency On Planet Ringpiece
Colostolobotomised (Shit For Brains)


This may well end up being another dead-end project, but I can only blame myself if it ends up that way. I'm the sole member of this band!

I know that a song called Kids With Tits should not make me laugh, but it did. Very much so.

KIDS WITH TITS
(Music by Peter Vegem. ©2009. Lyrics by Kristopher Schau ©2009)

If the world is nothing but a bubble
Then man was born a cactus!
If there's such a thing as a god
That fucker should be sued for malpractice
When you know you can't stand people
And you just can't stand yourself
When there's no one there to comfort you
No one to ask for help... except for

Kids With Tits
Kids With Tits
Kids With Tits
Kids With Everything!


Anyone who can get away with rhyming 'cactus' and 'malpractice' is a creative genius in my book!

My latest musical endeavour is an electro industrial project called Spiderpuncher.

I let my eldest take control of Spotify on the way home from Swindon tonight.  I've been introduced to "a genre of music called Trap" (his words).  Sounds like a kids music homework project, but apparently it's the coolest music on YouTube.

I very rarely feel old, but today is one of those occasions.

Less music, more musical instrument. I have just discovered Dr Neon guitar strings and they are awesome. I've used Rotosound strings for 15 years now and these are the first to make me change my mind.




I went for neon yellow to stand out against the purple of the guitar body. The coating feels strange, very smooth and skin like, but they play fantastically and have a lovely tone evern when not plugged in. Well worth £8 for a set.

Anybody else interested?

http://www.alive2017.com

The last time I saw live music (not at a wedding) was The Insprial Carpets in about 1991, so it's not something I'd normally do but I'd love to see Daft Punk live.

Probably go to London although Tokyo could be fun!

I've got another musical project ongoing, which is a bit daft as I rarely finish anything - I guess I just either get bored easily or because my tastes and influences are wide ranging and I want to try everything.

Anyway, I'm starting a no-nonsense punk band called Pathway. I'm playing bass in this one, for a bit of a change.

MY SIL gave me the new Rolling Stones CD for Christmas. Blue and Lonesome. Finally got round to listening to it earlier. I expected to like it - blues played by the Stones. Can't be bad. My god, what a load of shit. They've picked the worst sings, played with pretty much zero emotion. There's one track that is OK. The rest made me want to throw things.

Time to retire I think boys, or just stick to playing the old classics.

I bought the same CD this week in the HMV sale.  I thought it was OK, but not as consistently good as I was hoping.  The two songs that I'd seen the videos for are among the best.

For relatively modern blues at the rockier end of the spectrum I'd recommend Walter Trout's "The Blues Came Calling" and Joe Bonamassa's "Different Shades Of Blue".  Have only heard excerpts of Bonamassa's latest album "Blues Of Desperation" but what I have heard, I also liked.

Nope. Bono is a grade A tit, but his band have produced some awesome music. Before the 21st century, at least...

Walter Trout is good. I've not got that one, I'll have a sample on iTunes. I really like Walter Trout & the Radicals "Relentless". I recently also discovered Popa Chubby. He's the size of a small house but fuck me can he play a guitar. Blues, rock, everything in between. He plays Hendrix stuff better then Hendrix and his blues ranges from rocky to soulful. Try his CD Popa Chubby Live, Big, Bad and Dangerous.

Bonamassa is superb,well worth checking out the first black country communion album .He releases too much stuff for the quality to remain high ,but blues of desperation is a cracker

There is some very good 'heavy' blues (classic rock)stuff around ,Rival sons,temperance movement ,monster truck

Not so technically proficient, probably because most of his guitars only have 3 or 4 strings, but I really like Seasick Steve. His latest has a really good acoustic second disc.

Speaking of second discs, I've just bought Suede's latest again. It's a great album, probably their best, but I found out that it was available with a DVD version of the album that supposedly enhances the listening experience, so I bought it a second time to give it a go. Even if you're not a fan, give it a listen on Spotify or whatever, you may be surprised at how good it is...

I've got loads that I bought in the 80s on vinyl that I really ought to revisit some time. Lots of stuff like Robert Cray, Albert King, Johnny Winter, Lonnie Brooks, Johnny Copeland etc. Plenty of SRV, too, but I've replaced most of those on CD.

I bought a CD last week (old fashioned I know) from Amazon and got an email telling me that I could also download it for free.
I fired up the Amazon Music app, did the download and happily listened to the album.

When I went to show this wonderful piece of modern technology to Mrs Tim last night lo and behold I can now listen to ALL of the albums I've EVER bought (on CD) from Amazon.

Amazing.
There's some real shit in the list, they must've been bought as presents

Just bought this after a Spotify session searching for guitar music. Really good bluesy rock type of stuff.

Also found another one that I'm planning on searching out, Virgil And The Accelerators. Heavier than the above, but an apt name for a band mentioned on a car forum!

No website, as I think they split up?

Possibly. That's the trouble with Spotify, you can flick from one artist to another to another and before you know it you've forgotten half of what you've listened to. That Virgil fella I found a few months ago, but then forgot about and it took me about a week of looking at guitarist vids on YouTube before he came up in the suggestion panel on the right hand side! Their live version of Voodoo Child is something else. There are lots of others that are technically gifted, but leave me a bit cold musically, KWS being one of them...

Currently working my way through the catalogue of Anders Osborne*, found via an Oli Brown cover. The latter has moved away from the blues stuff more recently and now has a full on rock band that remind me a little of Soundgarden. They're called RavenEye.

* on Spotify, the CD prices are ridiculous!

I let my eldest take control of Spotify on the way home from Swindon tonight. †I've been introduced to "a genre of music called Trap" (his words). †Sounds like a kids music homework project, but apparently it's the coolest music on YouTube.

I very rarely feel old, but today is one of those occasions.


I've no idea what Trap is but my kids are generally pretty in line with my tastes, and the brainwashing has worked there too.

Before eldest got an ipod connector for the Focus he had to play CD's and I noticed my Led Zep and a fair number of indie guitar groups featured.

He's introduced me to a lot of good music and we've a shared appreciation of a lot of stuff. Indeed I'm off to see the Black Honeys next month after he introduced me to them and last week I saw Get Inuit, The Big Moon and Spring King (who were absolutely amazing live) with him at a small venue in Oxford.

I've really got back into seeing gigs again, though the prices differ a lot. Cheapest is circa £10 I think, whereas I'm off with Mrs. GBB and my best man and his wife to see U2 at £160 or so per ticket.

Expensive but you only live once and I've always wanted to see them live again but doing the older stuff, it will be 30 yrs since I saw the Joshua Tree live the first time.

Thanks for those. Joanne Shaw Taylor is worth a look too.


Definitely. She was sold out in Harpenden when I tried to get tickets unfortunately.
