Between Mockingbirds '2' album art work

Song 7 of 7. Well I'm going to use this precious slot for an unsigned band, and yes there is a huge shovel load of nepotism that comes with this selection. Yes it's Between Mockingbirds and "We Know Where You'd Go" a great wee band, a great wee tune, .... more

London Calling cover art

OK! I've got my brother Steven to thank for introducing me to this band. So song 2 of 7 has gotta be The Clash and 'Clampdown'. The lyrics just sum up how it felt to be a teenager in Britain in 1979. I could have lifted oh so many tracks from London .... more
