2014: Albums 5 – 2

December 30, 2014


5: Old Man Gloom // The Ape of God Part of me has always wanted to be in a band like Old Man Gloom. An album every now and then, maybe one or two shows a year, just getting together with likeminded people and doing whatever it is you want to do musically. ‘The Ape […]

End of year lists are quite like crack to me. As a child I was a list-maker to the point of obsession, lists of cricket players, dinosaurs, crisps, god knows what else. Music became more and more important in my begrudging existing as my teenage years built in number, but there was no let up […]
