Buy the new single by The Nackers. This Italo/Irish garage punk band has my mate on drums. They're recently returned from a string of dates in Italy.
Buy Bob Byrnes new book 'Mr. Amperduke'. Bob is the creator, publisher and dogsbody behind The Shiznit. You can buy his new work here.
It behoves me to publicly acknowledge that not only was someone stupid enough to nominate me for Best Music Blog at the upcoming Irish Blog Awards, but it now appears that there was further insanity when I was included in the (long) shortlist. If I win I'll put my trophy/scroll beside my Certificate that I won in the Superquinn Art Competition when I was six and the Gradam an Choláiste that I won in the gaeltacht when I was 15. Trophies and I are uncomfortable bedfellows as you might tell. I never actually realised there were so many Irish blogs. It's all a bit common really. I might have to stop.
