Hallo There… How’s Life?

45 Minutes Of Revolution logoAfter taking a little (ahem) time out to get on with other things, I’m back with a fresh attitude.

First things first, I’ll no longer be uploading complete rips of my music collection and all of the old download posts have been deleted. There are various reasons, but it mostly comes down to time and commitment. Sorry about that.

On the other hand, I plan on making this blog more like a proper zine. I’ll continue with reviews, interviews, vegan recipes, and shooting my mouth off. One or two other things may also find there way onto these pages.

And the biggest change? Well, I’ve decided to start doing a regularish music mix made up of tracks from my own stuff and releases from t’internets. It’s called ’45 Minutes Of Revolution’ and aims to recreate an old-fashioned tape comp. It’ll all fit onto one side of a C90 tape and there are no track breaks, so you’ll have to fast forward the digital version to find your favourite tunes just like the old days. For all of you young people, a comp tape is like a podcast without any of the annoying talking.

So without further ado, here’s the first one, along with all the info you need to get the full punk rock mix tape experience.
