Monthly update time!
Mr Badger is still working like a badger to get all the charts ready for the forthcoming “secret” vocal album – at some point we will be revealing more about this – but he has still found time to prepare a “first listen” album review of Lyle Mays’ “Street Dreams” (an album that has been out for 32 years!).
And we have more information on live music in the Midlands (and a bit down Brighton way too).
It’s still we and windy out there , but don’t let that stop you from getting to to see some great bands this month. See the Gig Guide for more information, but here is a summary of what’s going on – and there is a lot going on this month:
