A lot of great music around at the moment. Just got my hands on the new album by GLASVEGAS, "EUPHORIC /// HEARTBREAK \\\. I think this band are a classic "marmite" band - as many people hate them as love them, but I just love the wall of sound that they create on their albums and the fact that they wear their hearts on their sleeves. They are probably the first band since the PROCLAIMERS to sing in their native accent, which can make the album and the band a bit more impenetrable. But I reckon it's well worth the effort. One of the albums of the year so far.

Also enjoying ANNA CALVI - who was amazing on LATER last week, and YUCK, who I will be going to see at SCALA next month.

This years UNDISCOVERED competition is open for entries now - the closing date is April 30th. The competition is open to all unsigned Essex based artists of all styles & genres, and this year there are no age limits.
Last years final took place at Colchester Arts Centre, and was won by REACHBACK.
Essex is currently a hot bed of talent that has seen the likes of JESSIE J, MATT CARDLE and OLLY MURS achieve No1 success nationally.
Talent scouts are looking at ESSEX for the next big thing, so this County wide competition, now in it's 3rd year, could well be a stepping stone to greater success.

The first record I ever owned, and therefore the most important, was DAVID BOWIE's "THE RISE AND FALL OF ZIGGY STARDUST & THE SPIDERS FROM MARS".
Little did I know it then, but it was the record that was to influence my whole career - without it I may never have developed my love of music and taken the career path that I ultimately did. For that then I have to thank my Dad who bought me the album, and then ALLADIN SANE a few months later. My love of Bowie began at that point. "Ziggy" is still one of my all time favourite albums and classic tracks such as 5 Years, Starman, Suffragette City and Rock n Roll Suicide still stand up after a life time of playing.
