Mailbox – Bang and Olufsen

Mailbox – Bang and Olufsen Originally uploaded by bounder I know they only seem to sell kit to professional footballers (a guy that worked there once told me that that month they’d only sold one system to Lee Hendrie) – but a big advert featuring Ken Bates?

Gwen Stefani at the NIA

Gwen Stefani (yes, I know, not my usual thing, a return of a longstanding agreement from the last time I dragged my other half to watch Belle & Sebastian or somesuch) is not averse to using the odd bit of popular culture – in the first half hour she’s played songs that piggy-back on Topol […]

Now I got worry

New Heavy Trash album and a Blues Explosion rarities collection oh, Mr Spencer with this garage rock you are really spoiling us.
