10 GREAT SONGS WITH MISTAKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A problem that some music aficionados find with more recent recordings is their pristine polish and unnatural mixing. Auto tuning of vocals and the ability to drop in on Guitars, Drums, means no more solos that have imperfections, which surely is what makes artistic expression mean so much more. I personally adore anything that the […]

Musicians who died in 2020

The list of notable musicians who died in 2020 is expansive, with Coronavirus and gun violence making unsettling contributions. A number of masters, mavericks, upstarts, and icons are now sadly part of the cast of musicians who have played their final note. As much as I tried to make this a comprehensive tribute, there are […]

BLACK SABBATH’S DEBUT WILL BE 51 YEAR’S OLD IN FEBRUARY 2021! HERE’S 50 FUN FACTS….

It’s heavy-metal ground zero: Black Sabbath’s self-titled debut. The beginning of it all. Dark, crushing, sinister and timeless, it’s 40 minutes of groundbreaking perfection, as revelatory today as it was when it was released in the grim winter of 1970 — from Ozzy’s otherworldly yowl and Tony Iommi’s immortal riffs to Geezer Butler’s rumbling bass lines and occult-tinged lyrics, and Bill Ward’s thundering […]

RIGHTEOUS

You can see everyday in a starving child’s eyes You can see it in Parliament in the politicians lies You can see it in the violence of a drunken weekend night And you can see it in the streets in the past stains of a fight You can see it in a gambler when his […]

THE PRICE OF PEACE

The rigging of elections The buying of power The innocent civilians Taking refuge and cower Bombing of cities, children, schools Collateral damage Cook the books, keep them smooth Deformities of birth Biological spores Chernobyl Selling tickets for tourists We’ve got religion We’ve got New World Order Tradition of suspicion Genocide and slaughter The fight carries […]

DEMONS AND ANGELS

Are we simply products of their time? Corruption, politics, organised crime It comes as no surprise the game is rigged The poor get poorer and the rich stay rich Irony of technology makes us talk even less War is peace, freedom slavery, ignorance is strength Demons and angels, just different sides Of the same cold […]

PANDEMONIUM

Bullets, tanks, strategies, plans These are the glories of war Boy’s toys, panic noise What are we fighting for? Bombs, limbs, mines, lessons Follow your orders, don’t you dare ask questions LEFT RIGHT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT The name of peace, the good, the bad, the dead It’s pandemonium Grenades, boots, pillage, loot These are […]

MEDIA MACHINE

Did it creep up slowly? Like cancer upon our nation Or has it always been Dripping acid through our stations? When did we become so callous, cruel, uncaring? There are no hero’s left Only gladiatorial spectating Just like cattle, people standing, staring, filming The violence on the little screen Uploading doesn’t make it real Who […]

FOREIGN LANDS

Turn blind eye to genocide, there’s no oil in the ground You can fill the skies with you hate & lies and the power of your machines But if push comes to shove, would you throw this world into war? The ramblings of an old man’s foolish pride and nothing more Jesus Christ, a button […]

FEAR THE FEAR

They took away all my toys Stopped a boy being a boy All the bats in belfry had flown away They think their helping me With diagrams of ‘BUN’ theory But apparently, I’m off fishing again Quick! I can feel her lying in wait And it’s time to self-medicate A few milligrams should help put […]
