I've been scouting around, turning out files and searching in vain for some inspiration then what happens? I get a mailshot from a friend who says "Check out these guys". So I did, and I found the eponymous "Hairy prog rock Monsters" very retro, and sounding like early Led Zepellin. (You remember led Zepellin dontcha? They were some of the original Hairy prog rock monsters.) Anyway these monsters have got four tracks on their myspace which is two thirds of their latest CD. They describe themselves as being a mix of classical, rock, folk and blues. So that promises well. Actually if you like your folk rocky and your rock folky and your folk rock with a classical bluesy flavour you'll love these guys. So go check 'em out. What I didn't tell you their name? Well it isn't Hairy prog rock monsters. It's "Blind io" and you'll find them nestling all comfy and cosy right HERE
Oh God it doesn't rain but it pours. I'm sitting here at my desk minding my own business fielding mails from wannabee popstars and rappers, when Shaggy walks into the office loaded with doughnuts and a Skinny Latt-ay. "Hold the press!" he says spitting out half a doughnut, "I've got your 'myspace of the week'."
"I've already done "myspace of the Week" it's those Hairy prog rock monsters."
"Well we've got to have a double header myspace of the week then."
That's unilateralism for you. No discussion, no debate.
So the second entry for this weeks "Myspace of the week" is a new magazine that you can also read online which is really cool, because you can push a button and the pages turn. But that's not just why it's so cool. It's got great stuff in it and what's more you can contribute to it too. If you want. It's even got a forum. Yay! There's photos by Simon Colson; they're good. Photos by Mike Da Hat as well but not obviously mentioned. There's articles on Opaque Point of origin and .... hello so that's why he wanted it to be myspace of the week. An I thought he'd gone all altruistic on me. Gee we're learning some words today.
Anyway the new magazine is called Art and Soul and it's got it's own myspace which is
and if you want to have a peek at the mag itself have a look right HERE
There's a website too it's HERE
Now I've got to beat the crap out of Shaggy for forgetting my Large Americano with extra azucar... er... rock on dudes.
