A few weeks back I had a chat with Glenn Prangnell of Groovy Uncle.
The conversation was preserved for posterity by my occasionally reliable camcorder. During our chat we discussed his soon to be released album,
A Clip Round the Ear.
Well, the day has finally arrived and
A Clip Round the Ear is now with us.
Read about it right
Go on. It’ll definitely be worth your while.
Let’s be honest here. This isn’t really an article about Lorde’s ‘Royals’ at all.
But read on to find out why this song defined my 2013.
2012 will be remembered for many things: most of them involving athletic, swimming and cycling events in that London.
Away from that though Medway’s Singing Loins took it upon themselves to release
…here on earth.
And a grateful nation should thank them and celebrate their very existence at every available opportunity.
Where opportunities are not available, they should be created.
In 2011 I found myself working, among other things, at a rather dodgily run outfit that arranged dance themed hen parties.
Prior to this, I discovered through a not particularly in-depth search through their records, they’d been the brains (and groins) behind one of those chat channels you’ll find at the bottom of the TV channel menu.
All was not lost though. I placated myself with an excellent soundtrack as I attempted to create a social media campaign out of absolutely nothing:
Oh, I do love a bit of Anna Calvi.
All hail the triumphant return of my narcistic series about stuff I’ve liked over the years!
And now for a rambling thing about porn and Peel.
Simon Bunyan fronts the band These Guilty Men. In his time, he’s been in the bands Robert Underwater and The Men From Memphis.
Here he is, though, in his living room, talking about some of his favourite Medway things.
We’re fast approaching the longest day of the year and it’s been rather warm of late.
So what better time to give some thought to a song by the name of ‘
The Last of the Melting Snow‘?
A slightly different post to usual. Very little of musical interest.
Just irate rants about children’s services going up in smoke.
Another video. My camcorder and I are
This time round it’s Groovy Uncle’s Glenn Prangnell. We met in a German cafe in Rochester where the staff were kind of enough to let us film and also served up delicious lemony muffins.
I think I’ll be going there again.
