Obscure Sound

May 30, 2008

As a blogger with not much time and fairly un-eloquent language when describing music/gigs, I love when I come across music blogs that are well written and have some excellent music content.

To go along with the already great sites of Nialler9 and GraveyardshiftShane I have recently come across another two Irish bloggers who have some great posts about music and gigs. So head on over to No Ordinary Fool and Hardcore For Nerds when you have a few minutes!

They really do have great content but the best new find over the last couple of months is from a post on Captain Obvious’s page:

Obscure Sound is simply a superb site and while I recognize a few of the groups there is such a plethora of new artists that I feel like I have overdosed over the last couple of days! Even a few pages into his archive and there are at least 8 groups that I will just have to get the album- I am nearly afraid to go back any further in case I am found asleep on the keyboard from pure exhaustion and the Obscure Sound banner branded into the monitor for eternity!  So if you have the time head on over to him but be warned that you will be there for more than just a few minutes.


When blogging gets personal

December 16, 2007

Only a quick one tonight since a bloody cold has finally caught up with me….and I can’t even blame any Christmas parties for being run down since they are later on this week!  Oh well the vodka at the parties will be medicinal;-)

Anyway- Luncheon Roll had quite a stroppy remark left about her thoughts of The Blonde Majority who were supporting Butterfly Explosion at a gig in Crawdaddy.  It has now turned into a little drama but I must admit Luncheon Roll has been very good in defending her position.  I think it is quite funny how readers can take offence about somebody’s personal thoughts on a group- it’s all down to personal preference isn’t it?  At least it is no where near as nasty as the little comments fight that was going on in Nialler9’s blog about the Go!Team!
