  • Rock Night Out

    Every Tuesday night at university here is a combined rock and pop night in two different rooms. The rock room, so called "Stoned" is in a larger venue than "Club Soda", which is in a 100 people capacity tiny side room. First off all, let me rant abou…

  • Indestructible

    If you're in the Bradford area come to the only kickass rockin' music night...

  • Indestructible...again

    Well, that was probably the best night out in Bradford I've had since being a student. I headed down around 9.30, before the schedueled "doors open" at 10, to give Phil (DJ) and his brother, Simon (door man) a hand. The night started slow but by 11.3…

    It seems Google Music has just launched, but like most of Google's products it doesn't sell you and products, but simply links you to the resources which do. When you search for an artist, album or song in the main Google engine you may see a music i…

  • MSN Currently Playing From Winamp

    As of MSN Messenger version 7 and above, there has been native support to show what song you're playing in Windows Media Player next to your nick. I say native support as there has been plugins which have done this in the past. This is great if your…

  • Less Than Jake at the O2 Institute

    On Wednesday I watched ska-punk legends Less Than Jake for the umpteenth time. They've been a band for 30 years now and toured extensively in the UK since then. The last time I saw them was their 2018 co-headling tour with Reel Big Fish. They played…
