The late show

Episode 11 of Sounding Bored - which out of modesty I certainly hesitate to call "long-awaited", though its recording was postponed from mid-November - is finally up online.

Together with our guest Brian, Rob and I tackle the subject of live music, covering everything from what makes a good venue to the economics of gigs from the perspective of both punters and bands. Inevitably, I get misty-eyed about the fate suffered by the Point in Cardiff, while Brian recalls a particularly uncomfortable Don Cabellero gig we both went to back in 2008.

Our featured album is Honeyblood's Babes Never Die, which, while adding little new to the existing canon of punchy, female-fronted alt-rock, does have the hooks to reel you in.
