Anthony Hamilton - modern soul man

A lot of artists are meant to have soul nowadays, Anthony Hamilton not only embodies soul, he exudes it. Already six albums in (his latest 'the point of it all' is released today), he blends vocals reminiscent of the Rev. Al Green with gritty hip hop beats. You need to check this cat out!

My Stallone List Part 1

Silvester Stallone, what a man!
Here is my list of his films that arnt rocky and rambo that you have to see....

Cobra (1986)

Super cop Marion 'Cobra' Cobretti  takes on some crazy masons who are trying to kill the Amazonian Brigitte Neilson, Stallone is so tough in this film that he uses scissors to cut pizza, I’m not joking
If you haven’t seen this film then check out this article from i-mockery Here

Over The Top (1987)

Trucker father and snobby son bond via the universal language of arm wrestling, check out what it’s all about here

Death Race 2000 (1975)

Even though David Carradine was the star of this flick, Stallone really shows that he is destined for playing a badass. Why they had to do a remake is lost on me!

Check out part 2 very soon....

Kanye West - 808s & Heartbreak

Cool album, even though it does remind me of a Phil Collins album from the 80's.

Tommy's Fresh Record Club #2 John Mayer Trio - Try!

First things first, I love live records. Try! is my all time favourite live album, this was the moment John Mayer became a guitar hero and banished all previous perceptions people had of him as a musician. Backed by rock legends Pino Palladino (bass) and Steve Jordan (drums) the sound is no frills, raw, searing blues rock. Featuring a mix of original tunes, covers and re-workings of earlier Mayer songs.

Touring as the trio gave Mayer a fresh perspective and inspired the tracks that were soon to be heard on the awesome 'Continuum' record.

Check out this live record and then go grab 'Continuum', you won't be sorry!

Tommy's Fresh Record Club #1Funkadelic - Maggot Brain

Maggot Brain, released July 1971 is considered by many as the seminal release from George Clinton's funk collective Funkadelic. I love this record for many reasons, the most obvious being the amazing guitar work of the late great Eddie Hazel. Legend has it that George Clinton told Hazel to play as if his mother had died on the title track, the feedback drenched results are truly stunning.

Each track on the record is wildly different and encompasses funk, hard rock, soul and elements of gospel. This is the sound of a band at their peak.

Check it out!

Neon Neon - Stainless Style

Bit late on this one... Have been listening to this record a lot. It's a collabo between Gruff Rhys of Super furry animals fame and producer Boom Bip. The album is loosely based on the story of De Lorean car inventor John De Lorean (read up on that one). Check it out, it straight up bangs!

Hurude was a rolling stone

Wherever he set up his computer was his home.

I know it is a little sad but I immediately feel settled in any new home after I have set up my pc. That said I don’t think I could of gotten away with doing it first as we didn’t have any plates and no bed to sleep on but first thing this morning I’m checking the emails. A little sad I think.

Especially as I never have any.

I love dogs but...

I love dogs but I have never had one, but that has never bothered me as it has only been in the last few years that I've truly wanted a doggy of my own.
My grand plan was to move into my new house with my dog adoring girlfriend and get a little pup that we can raise as our own. We were thinking of getting a small dog, as our house is not huge.
My missus loves pugs and I will admit at first I thought they were dammm ugly but once I had got used to their snubby little faces I warmed to the idea.
this video helped

I was all geared up and ready to by my first dog until I saw this program yesterday on BBC 1 which made me really think


I deep down knew dogs were inbred but I didn't think to what extent, not ever having a dog before I never really took into account what goes on to get the dogs looking a certain way. I don't want to make my opinion based on one documentary I cant help doing so when you look at how a pug has been mutated through out history. I found it all sickening.

I think my trip will be to the rescue centre rather than a pedigree breeder when I get my own mans best friend

My first post... Jimi Hendrix

I couldn't think of a subject more dear to me for my first post. The music of Jimi Hendrix means everything to me, I was exposed to Jimi's unique sound as a young lad of four or five years old. I didn't know what I was listening to, I just knew it was edgy and unlike anything else I had ever heard. Since those early days I have listened to Hendrix almost every day, I never get tired of hearing Jimi's distinctive guitar sound and raw, soulful vocals.

A lot of people think that Jimi was just another flashy guitar player, wrong, he was the original flashy guitar player. The man pushed guitar playing into the stratospheres, people are still trying to figure out how to play like him now. He also had a great ear for melody and was always in search of writing the perfect pop song, in many ways he succeeded. Just check out 'little wing' to hear his pop sensibilities shining.

Many people have written far more eloquently about Hendrix than I ever will be able to. I don't feel that I need to say any more. His music means more to me anything else I will ever listen to, whatever phase I am in my life I will always come back to the music of Jimi Hendrix.

Just ask the axis (he knows everything).
