Like a magician about to pull back the cloak or a bag of Haribo Star Mix, you just never know what you’re going to get with MUNKY. One of the more diverse (and fun) bands on the Irish music scene right now, MUNKY have been nothing but unpredictable in their short existence. And now they’re back with… “Megaton” dun dun dun! (insert high-pitched screams). Out … Continue reading MUNKY are back with a brand new banger!
Ah yes. The Killers. The early Killers actually just to clear things up. Back when Brandon Flowers was fresh faced and Mr. Brightside took over the world of radio. They came flying out of the traps with their early singles and became one of the biggest bands in the world in a pretty short space of time. Synth was back and it was cooool. It … Continue reading The Killers – Hot Fuss
‘Total Life Forever’ is English band Foals second album released in 2010. The band said that the album’s sound can be described as “the dream of an eagle dying“. Oook then, no drugs involved here. Four singles were released from the record and it did pretty well where ever it was released. Their debut ‘Antidotes‘ had also done well two years before and I still … Continue reading Foals – Total Life Forever

I know several other groups came along or were present at the time, especially punk bands, but The Smashing Pumpkins were fucking loud. ‘Gish’ is their debut record, released in 1991. During the recording, Corgan was so obsessed about the … Continue reading The Smashing Pumpkins – Gish

Their previous album ‘White Blood Cells‘ had brought them mainstream success on a smaller scale and set them up for bigger things. They delivered with ‘Elephant‘, and album with which they used 60’s recording equipment and no computers. They also recorded in a ‘non … Continue reading White Stripes – Elephant
Josh Ritter’s seventh album ‘The Beast In It’s Tracks‘ was released in 2013. Anyone who listens to Josh Ritter knows what a fantastic storyteller he is. He has also written quite a lot of songs abut America but doesn’t do the personal thing too much. With ‘The Beast In It’s Tracks’ he finally goes personal. It’s pretty much all about his separation from his wife a … Continue reading Josh Ritter – The Beast In It’s Tracks
Def Leppard’s fourth album ‘Hysteria‘ is 30 years old this year. That’s older than myself. A few years ago I bought one of their greatest hits albums (can’t remember the name) because ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’ was on it. That then lead on to me playing it for a friend who also loved it, and THAT lead on to us singing at every karaoke … Continue reading Def Leppard – Hysteria
