Speaking of a “treat” check out the amazing Wolf Parade’s new album Cry Cry Cry. The always great Subpop has a bizarre but genius sales format, they constantly put full albums onto YouTube available to stream. I guess in this day in age you need to beat every 12-year old in their bedroom from doing it. I know it makes me want to buy the album more.

‘Cry Cry Cry’ (Release date: October 6th, 2017)

Nothing but praise for Shia LaBeouf

Unlike a lot of you naysayers I grew up with Shia LaBeouf, learning that Stevens can indeed be the same.  Too often we berate young up and coming talent. We scoff at their Transformer selling out but also too often our young actors lose the plot. Not our Shia. Shia is as stead fast as Macaulay’s singing career. You can always depend on Shia. The new Sia music video shows us his vulnerable side, is he just a bird trapped in a cage of celebrity?

 

I doubt it, watch these Shia moments instead.

If you managed to miss this, shame on you. Shia graced us with his presnece as he sat and watched all his movies. It was gripping. It gave us such iconic images as….

Darwin Deez – The Mess She Made

Old Darwin does it again with another amazing music video. Directed by  this video is a visual treat as all Darwin’s videos are. A combo of a massive f.22 stop means they have focus for days and some amazing visual tricks. Some of the set ups are so perfect that the money looks faked. Have a look below and take a look at some of Darwin’s other amazing videos.

#TBT – @Notsquares @Forfey – August 2010

Every August in Northern Ireland something out west would manage to tempt the Belftiats from their caves to cross the River Bann. Being the only thing of creative interest to happen in Fermanagh since a certain Oscar was knocking about, Forfey was always on my calendar. Unfortunately this year building control decided it wasn’t to be.

Amigos, aficionados, artistes. It is with a heavy heart that we at Team F tell you that our beloved festival will not be taking place in 2015. For the last number of months, we’ve striven to pull strings, scratch backs and otherwise lather-up the authorities, but to no avail – our venues do not pass muster with building control. We’re still engaged with local, regional and provincial officialdom to see what can be done going forward, but for now, “Anno Rex” remains our latest and greatest achievement. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support over the last nine years. We’ve seen some unforgettable moments in the most unlikely yet intimate venues. We’ve got bruises and fond memories from year one to year nine. We hope to make many more (of both). Love, Team F.

Here is a few Throwback Thursday photos from five years ago at a great weekend. Not Squares absolutely destroyed the place and more than one barn in Fermanagh had a hangover. Here’s looking forward to 2016, 2017, 2018…

The sad decline of vinyl in Glasgow

Once the way of the tape, innards pulled out in a way no pencil can fix. Then it moved to the CD, dragged from its sleepy bed betwixt the ashtray and the dashboard, then hurled, scraped and bashed, left abandoned at the sides of roads. It’s only crime perhaps a skip or a jump.
Now it’s the turn of the new golden child, vinyl. Left to melt in the Glasgow sunshine, no chance it can survive.
Is there no love in this mad world anymore?
