Something to write about.

Ok, so I’ve been meaning to post about this for a while. I had already  written about it on my blog on tumblr but now I feel I should write  about it here, seeing as I probably get at least two more readers on  this one than on that one.

The other week, I got a comment on this blog from someone who worked  for a small independent record label. They’d read my blog and knew  that I followed one of their artists on Twitter. They asked if I would  be interested in reviewing this artist’s single.  After spending a  couple of days thinking about it, and another week of not being able  to put anything into action due to real life getting in the way, I decided that I would have a go.  I felt that if I could use what little power and influence I have to get the word out there about them,  then it would be worth doing, even if only a small number of people read it.

The review of the single is still in development at the moment. In the meantime, I might as well tell you who I’m writing about. The band are  a duo called No Machine. I found out about them when I saw them mentioned on  the Twitter page of another band I follow. From clicking on their  profile, I found a link to their MySpace page, had a listen to their  music and really liked what I heard. I won’t write too much more about them as I want to save some for the review, but if you like bands like The Hoosiers, The Feeling or indeed any artist  that knows how to make a catchy tune, then chances are you may love  them too. The track of theirs I will be writing about is called “Toast The  Toaster”, which is their debut single.  I can’t promise that my review  will be of the standard you see in say, Q magazine, but it will be my  honest opinion nonetheless. Bar the numerous critiques I had to write  as part of my degree coursework, the last time I wrote a review was  when I did one of the Jim Carrey flick Liar Liar for my sixth form college  magazine years ago. I think I did a good job.

In the meantime, if you want to, you can check out No Machine at these  sites: – their official site.– their MySpace page. – their twitter page. Follow them, they’re nice guys.
