A Spoonful Of Metal

Last month, as a treat for their fans (and music-lovers everywhere) Babymetal kindly posted two of their Tokyo Dome stadium shows (from September 2016) on YouTube for all to see, for free! Due to my own stupidity/tardiness, I managed to … Continue reading

Last weekend three acts I’d dearly love to see live were playing Glastonbury Festival: Vodun, The Lounge Kittens, and Babymetal… though there was never any chance of me actually attending the event, because I hate the outdoors, and “roughing it” … Continue reading
