What can I say? Born with the gift of the gab, and I don't believe in luck. You make your own luck in this world, so I just try and remain present, and live in the now.

Just Jen – Festival Allsorts #4

Just Jen performing at Festival Allsorts #4. 15 years after her last stage appearance, it took some convincing to get back on the stage, but it was well over due! Obviously, I love this! When Jen is not tearing up … Continue reading

The Sea Gypsies – Performing “Be Bold”

What can I say, other than that these guys were deadset RAD! A fantastic live band, great performers. Audio on this one is not too bad for a mobile phone recording, but of course it can never compare to being … Continue reading

Jimmy Maddon

Had to put this here just so that I would not forget this guys name. Jimmy Maddon. JIMMY FUCKING MADDON. Seen here guesting on vocals with Naked Scientist in the ADB, the skronky recording pretty much sums this guy up. … Continue reading

Yet another performance by a band from a 90’s Tribute Night. I was never a massive Tea Party fan, but I thought that these guys did a pretty good job. Keyboards are always a bit weird on these phone recordings, … Continue reading

Guns N Roadkill – Performing “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns N’ Roses

From the 80’s Tribute Night, here is a Guns N’ Roses classic. Just about the only disappointment for me is that the bass guitar was not captured particularly well by little mobile phone, especially in the intro. Well, you get … Continue reading
