I've been putting this off for a while but I want to introduce a feature or two to the blog. It's been running since October last year and I've thoroughly enjoyed it, but I'd like to make it a little more cohesive or something. I've always loved music, ever since I discovered a taped copy of What's The Story, Morning Glory, by Oasis in my aunt and uncle's house. They had much better taste than my parents, and though I've grown to love Elton John and James Taylor since, Oasis and U2 were sounds that blew my mind as a curious 10 year old. What I'm trying to say is ever since then I've loved discovering music, despite a teenage rut that had me stuck on 70's rock, 80's metal and Pearl Jam, but hey, fuck it. I like having an urge to listen to everything, and know everything about everything. I'll probably never know how to circulatory system works, or anything about global finance but I'd like to know loads of shit about music cos I like it.
To the detriment of many many fine works of film and literature all I really watch are music related documentaries and music related books. I generally have a few on the go at any one time, so I'm going to start writing about them. For anyone who's ever looking for something to watch or read, check in here and pick something out.
To kick it off I've spent the evening watching a fine Don Lett's TV documentary called Punk: Attitude, which came out in 2005. Interviewing the likes of David Johansen, Jello Biafra, Chrissie Hynde and Mick Jones, it hits the nail on the head. most of the interviewees make great points but can appreciate the time and place it had.
Here's the first part, go wild!
