I was going to write a long blog post about how the internet has made music better.

But pictures and sound speak louder than words:

Thanks to @DeathValleyGrls for a fantastic evening last Friday and @carlasalvatore for the photo. People are too uptight! They need to loosen up!

CDs are a rubbish way of listening to music aren’t they. Bits of plastic tat. No wonder vinyl is making a comeback. I’m only got my @TheCoathangers CD at Christmas and already it’s scratched on one of my favorite tracks. This one:

It’s only February and @thedartsUS “My Heart is A Graveyard” is going to be difficult to beat as track of the year:

So which of these bands am I going to be lucky enough to see next?

Death Valley Girls say they’ll be back in May, a The Coathangers UK tour is rumored, and The Darts are in France in May which is not that far… But it might be easiest to see @ppeachclubb as they come from Norwich, not LA…

It’s too late to stop now!

Rock ‘n’ roll.

Pronounced dead in 1959, but still alive and with a unique power to excite the senses and annoy people who should be annoyed…

1. “Glow in the Dark” by Death Valley Girls

Throbbing, edgy garage rock. The album sounds fantastic played loud in the car. Did Poison Ivy have some daughters she hasn’t told us about?

Extract from their recent live set from Pressure Drop TV:

2. “Battle Cry” by Marvellous She

Sombre, sober, conscious rock music. Bearing in mind the bloody awful state of the planet, “on point“.

3. “Chihuahua” by MAGNO 800

A long, long time ago I was in a rock ‘n’ roll band with my friend Jack. Now, he’s in Spain, but he still knows how to play rock ‘n’ roll guitar, and he’s still very cool…
