So my run of consistent postings lasted just under four weeks. Ahh well. It’s not that I’d run out of things to say, far from it. It has just been the last week before the Easter mid-semester break and all that work I should have been doing when I was blogging and obsessing over music finally caught up. The moments of madness are over for the time being, but I doubt I’ll be reaching the dizzy heights of three posts a week again.
I’m preparing some pretty lengthy posts for some bands I love that don’t get much coverage in the UK and also a lot more little gems from the bands that do (or at least did).
