Radiohead have all the songs on youtube and you can view them here, looks like a superb intimate show and they are shaping up to be one of the festival and gig highlights for this summer,

Many of the tracks are unreleased amateur recordings from his college days and some are outtakes to his three studio albums, there are also some of Drakes final recorded songs which gives this album a haunting and magically feel to it. One of those records that will get rid of any stress of the day.
This album is worth seeking out , if you are unfamiliar to Mr. Drake don't start here peruse his only three studio albums the first being Five Leaves Left (One of my all time favourites) and then Bryter Layter and finally Pink Moon. Nick is one of these classic tragic music type guys, died early and left some great stuff behind him, go check his stuff.

Johnny Marr is off doing his Modest Mouse duties, while Morrisey is churning out solo album after solo album, its hard to think what albums we could be treated to if these two got together today. All we can do is look back at the classic times they gave us.
I have stumbled across this recording of the smiths with john peel , it contains tracks from 1983 - 1986, which they recorded with the late great Mr.Peel.
It is a superb quality bootleg and worth a listen for any smiths fan, here is the link to download the whole album ->http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LW99XATX(Type in the three letters then wait for count down and press free download and it should start)

Maybe we might see Marr & Moz back again some day.
If your not a fan of smiths and want to start off somewhere go out and get the Queen is Dead album and don't say i didn't warn you if you can get it our of your CD player. Enjoy!

The 29th of December saw Eamonn Hehir descend on dolans again for a nearly annual Christmas gig, I went expecting the same greatness we heard last year ,However the set list seemed to have improved and the gig flowed better than any other I have seen this year. We were greeted with two classic covers from Emmylou Harris & Neil young and an all round good night of music and craic, It looks like it will finally happen and we will be treated to a second helping of a Eamonn Hehir solo album. Blood Mill Road was the first and at the gig two songs cropped up that would fit nicely in the new album one of which was "Gigs & Funerals" (Feat. Below) ,Cheers Lads hope to see ye next year
