I just wanted to remind people. Post-Brexit. As 17 million people crow about taking back “their” country and how it’s going to be great again, I just thought I’d mention it. You ain’t shit, and you’re here by accident, motherfucker. I mean, the sheer arrogance of it all is breathtaking to me. Me! Me, (an […]Read more "you ain’t shit and you’re here by accident"
Have you ever cried when a celebrity died? This is my third time. I cried when Prince, died in 2016. I cried when Cicely Tyson died in 2020. And I cried today, when I watched this clip of Sarah Harding singing her heart out and I realised that I had somehow, despite all reported evidence, […]Read more
Listen, I’ve seen some of y’alls lil lists and they’re fine… but they’re not my list. Definitively, without question, these are the best 100 songs of the decade – every single one is infinitely listenable, a credit to the medium, and will sound just as excellent in 10, 20, 30 years time if climate change […]Read more "These Are The Best Songs Of The Decade All Other Lists Are Fraudulent"

So this is very much a list of favourites, though the #1 spot is also the best, don’t get […]Read more "50 Albums That Made My Decade"
Listen, if my sleep wasn’t all over the fucking place the last six weeks I would have really gone in on the end of year content, but as it stands I am like… drained of brainpower and motivation and all I do is periodically notice that my jaw is clenched and try to relax it. So […]Read more "30 Albums I Loved In 2019"

Honestly, the state of NMF UK today. How is a YONAKA cover of Taylor Swift sitting in second place on the playlist while Normani – trending worldwide still, the only artist everyone is talking about right now – is languishing at #12? Very embarrassing. And I like YONAKA, don’t get me wrong, but… this ranking? […]Read more "A little Motivation…"
Before I get into some of the songs from the lower reaches of this week’s NMF, I just want to confess something and issue a retraction. Firstly, I have never ever lied on this blog before. Even if I have sometimes changed my mind later down the line, whenever I write in the moment it […]Read more "Face to face with some great songs you may have missed…"
This week is the first week in a long while where I’ve had time to get myself back into some semblance of a routine, look after myself, eat proper dinner, fall asleep after my nightly routine and not before. Then yesterday I had a really great, creative day with my partner-in-crime and… whew, my future! Lately […]Read more "Some small talk about big tunes…"
Good morning from me, the Scary Spice meeter. Did you know I met Scary Spice yesterday? That of all the people waiting to be blessed with her presence, after the random studio person said “LAST ONE WE HAVE TO GO”, she looked directly at lil ol’ me and said “no we can do one more”, […]Read more "We’re all gonna die, here’s some new music anyways…"
