Taking stock

OK, so it's going to be a little quieter here for a couple weeks while I take stock of the situation. My initial objective - to tell my life story through my musical experiences - has been achieved. There are still things to tell - gigs, albums, songs, etc - but most of what I now have are ideas.

Therefore, before I continue, I want to decide what happens next and to prepare some articles accordingly. My next post will be at the weekend, and I'll probably just stick to a couple of posts a week through the summer. Many of you will be on your hols at some point anyway, and if the hits I've had this last couple of weeks is anything to go by, you're all watching the World Cup at the mo rather than reading music blogs. So the time off will give me some time to prep some stuff as well.

That said, I would welcome some contributions, much like JC does at t(n)vv. I've bored you over the months with tales of my most memorable gigs, favourite songs and significant albums. If you fancy telling me about yours, don't be shy. Email me at rob[underscore]baker71[at]yahoo[dot]co[dot]uk. I await your call with eagerness.

In the meantime, here's a musical interlude from the Bohicas - something I've been listening to lately that's pretty awesome. Look out for this band, I saw them support Drenge recently and they were brilliant.

Crush Me - The Bohicas (single)


  1. Not only is the world cup on but it's the summer. More time spent outside. I'm not able to find the time to post these days. Not to mention I've a college project to finish before the end of August! You may remember filling out the questionnaire this time last year! Only getting my finger out now! I've a few ideas you can play around with. I'll send you an email when I get a chance.

  2. Gaaaa - don't take a break just as I've discovered your blog (thanks to JC!) I guess I'll have to make do with the archives for a while...

  3. I'll gladly send you something if you like, not sure what, I quite like ghosting onto other peoples blogs! - Keep up the good work,
    Actually I have just thought of something perfect for your blog - I'll be in touch - Swc.
