About

This Blog is about promoting great music not dissing bad music (That’s fun but a bit pointless).  The title is taken from a Smiths song because I couldn’t be bothered to come up with something original.

Allot of the music I review is purchased from Piccadilly Records.  So you can purchase it there too (And Please do).

Post a comment, recommendation or a question and I’ll get back to you.  If you want mp3s removed, contact me and I’ll remove them right away!

Thanks, Ryan (Stop Me).

    Hope that helps.

  3. Hey Ryan!

    I wanna thank you for the Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab” review. I really really wanna thank you for making the DEMO of “He Can Only Hold Her” & “Love Is A Losing Game (ACOUSTIC)” available for download! You are ace!

    ***I got the BACK TO BLACK album digitally, and I want to know about the version that you downloaded before. What tracks are different from the final release?

    *Rehab (The surfer guitar one you mentioned)
    *He Can Only Hold Her
    *Love Is A Losing Game

    Is there any else? If so, I’m willing to trade some rare Amy tracks for em!

    ***Sorry to have my first comment be about requests. I really do appreciate your site! Love most of your recommendations so far! Take care my friend!***

  4. Re: GoFunkYourself. As far as I can hear, there aren’t any other tracks that differ anymore than poor mixing. The version seems to be what sounds like a stolen rough-mix with the finished verion of ‘Rehab’ tacked on. I got the dodgy version from Soulseek, if I didn’t mention that already.

    Did you see Amy’s totally wasted appearance on Buzzcocks? Very funny, but I suspect she’s got more than a few personnal problems. Hope she can cope with them. She deserves to be happy for giving me such a damn fine album to listen to!

    Ryan.

  5. Thanks for the reply! Yeah, I saw little clips of her on Buzzcocks. She’s a real hoot! Love her even more. I’m not sure what she’s going through in her life right now – but I hope she’s happy & healthy. She can’t blame us for worrying though.

    First Charlotte Church. Second the Q Music Awards (heard she cursed out Bono during an acceptance speech!) Now the Buzzcocks.
    ***Although I can say she’s brilliantly funny when she’s drunk.

    I WILL NEVER FORGET HER PUNKROCK/SEX PISTOLS’ish VERSION OF “BEAT IT” Just plain genius. She should do a studio recording of it hahaha.

    Anyways, you should vist this excellent Amy Winehouse fan forum. Exclusive music, downloads, images, videos, etc.
