the archives remain, and all links to files will remain, but as of now, the site will not be updated.
please see the blog
a slight shift in focus has occurred recently. new reviews get posted on the blog first. after which these are posted on this site. so to keep up with the happenings point your news reader here :
that was easy.
no manifesto - no idea.
let's just see what happens.
update : nov'02
since starting this 2.5 years ago, the emphasis seems to have been moved slightly. as well as providing a memory of a lost classic i have been privileged to get to know some very exciting new artists on non-major labels. recently there has been a resurgence in excellent new lo-fi/indie/underground music, a lot of which mixes all types of genres into a glorious amalgamation of tunes and textures using real instruments and computerised sounds, many of these new acts deserve your attention
over the years i have scoured the second hand racks and built up a substantial collection of odds and sods. amongst the collection is a variety of styles the likes of which amazes even me. i refuse to pay the extortionate prices that the high street insist on charging and whole-heartedly recommend the little hidden away back street shops. personally i would prefer to spend £15 on 6-7 cd's of all sorts of stuff as opposed to the latest major-label hype. amongst the collection i have recently come to realise that many of the releases are absolute classic albums which dont deserve to get forgotten.
over the coming months i will post reviews of cd's that i deem to be such a classic and i know for a fact that the cd is available for less than a tenner. the reviews will be plain, simple and to the point. no hype just telling you whether its worth picking up or not.
hope this helps some music lovers out there
