Afternoon you lovely people, we've had a really busy week with both the rehearsal studio and the podcast, so thanks for coming down and thanks for listening to the podcast!

Here is Friday 24th February's Top 5;

Feel free to share it around with whomever you think appropriate!

1) Video of the week.

Hide and Seek - Imogen Heap performed by the Brooklyn Duo featuring Dover Quartet.

The original is beautiful, particularly if you really listen to the lyrics and follow the intention. The strings really make it more powerful and human, truly beautiful.

2) Track of the week.

Jimmy Page - How Stairway Was Written.

3) Quote of the week.

"Words can be hurtful but they're not the same as violence, and we can counter with other words."

 - Jonathan Rauch

4) Podcast of the week.

Joe Rogan Experience #919 - Neil deGrasse Tyson

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of Joe Rogan. His podcast was one of the first and remains at the top to this day, bearing in mind most episodes are 2-3 hours and he is now on episode 920. The amount of free content is staggering and the guests are more often than not very interesting, and this one is no exception. Well worth your time and watching the episode on YouTube offers more than just listening.

5) Gig of the week.

As mentioned in this weeks Audio Works Podcast with special guest Lal Muttock there are gigs on all over the town this weekend, so check out the episode and try to get to one, or all of them, it's the weekend, perfect time to get around a bit.

Speak to you Friday,

Friday 6th May's top five is;

1) Video of the week;

Imogen Heap - Hide and Seek ft. London Contemporary Voices.

This song does something to me. I first heard it on the album and there are several versions knocking about, this is the best by far. The combination of the powerful lyrics and the force of the choir is breathtaking. Click the link, turn it up and relax (and cry).

2) Gig of the week;

Reverend D Wayne Love (Alabama 3).

A great headliner, with 3 local support acts and only £5 on the door. Get involved.

3) Quote of the week;

"You've been thinking thoughts all your life and look where that's got you!" - S. Hands.

Sometimes I overthink things and this usually straightens me out.

4) Article of the week;

Apple Stole My Music, No, Seriously.

I just don't trust anyone with all of my digital information, either photo's, spreadsheets or music which is why I don't use cloud services. I don't use Apple Music or any other music streaming as they don't pay the artists enough, amongst other shady practices, but to erase your music as part of the deal is fucking mental.

5) Thing of the week;

Death By Chocolate Blender Brownie.

These things are very nearly healthy, but are very actually delicious. If you have a sweet tooth, then this is your answer if you want eat them all the time but still live for 100 years. You're welcome.

See you next week,
