When I take my weekly music review TO THE AIRWAVES!

The Hang of Music: I am literally running out of “Hotel California” puns now.

Seriously, every joke I make just hurts. But I have to break through it. I have to write here, right now, to tell you that The Hang of Music: Audiovised! #5 is up now on mixcloud, and there’s plenty of room availible for you and your friends to listen to it.

There, I made one last joke. You happy now. Click the image!

The Hang of Music – Audiovised #3: Electric, 6 – Hatful Of Napalm, 3

By the Thirteen, I hate the timestamp function on Mixcloud. I wish to see it’s finnickity, ill-designed head on a pike!

Despite that, last weeks AUDIOVISED REVIEW is up, and online. Last month it’s Electric Six, with their incredibly long titled album. Click below for monocles, synths and the funniest hats you’ll never see!

30% more geeky and impenetrable that your average podcast! 50% of your daily (weekly) weirdness intake!

The Hang of Music – Audiovised #2: Hurry hurry!

It is time for the next installment of “The Hang of Music: AUDIOVISED!” Would you believe that Mixcloud gave me more trouble over this than the last one?

Well, today we are rambling on about Rush, and trying to expunge Nikki Minaj from our thoughts.

The Doubley-doo, or however it’s written:

Jess’s show, Whole Lotta Rock, which is restarting tomorrow, should be listened to by all. BY ALL.

And for those of you who were wondering what Alasdair was waffling about, Open Space, the Uni open mic night, is having fun times at Red House in Sheffield next Thursday. Click here for FUN TIMES DETAILS!

The Hang of Music – Audiovised #1! Hells yeah! (And also Lordi)

Hey guys, and welcome to my newest review on The Hang of Music, and the end of Set Three to boot! As a tredecimal, I wanted to try something epic, and I think I hit on it.

I’ve been wondering for a while how I might manage to do a group review. Well, here it is. I call it “The Hang of Music: Audiovised!” Here, not just I but a couple of my friends and collaborators talk about Lordi’s third album, The Arockalypse, and the one that shot them to fame.

Just click on the image below to listen!

Next time, this’ll actually be embedded!

Cast includes:
  • Myself, your magnanimous and eloquent host.
  • Jess Petty, DJ of the awesome and oft exhorted “Whole Lotta Rock”, hosted by Forge Radio.
  • Patrick Rose, erstwhile editor of the blossoming “How To Play” Blog, as well as a talented folk musician and a bad pun aficionado.
  • And Jai, my good friend, and a man blessed with a detachable conscience (here played by Ammar)

I foresee more of these in the future, so watch this space and tell me what you think!

I knew there was a reason why Jai was awesome – he mentioned the video on IRC, and one of his friends produced this:

Apparently, Lordi Square in Rovaniemi (obviously in Finland) has a webcam attached. Go watch.
