A Change Is Gonna Come…

It’s November already! How the hell did that creep up on us so soon… Around about now, us country folk start foraging in the hedgerows for nuts, berries and roadkill to see us through the winter. It’s also the time when my thoughts turn to compiling The Acoustic Egg Box Top 30 Albums Of The …

DPD – Doors Proving Difficult

Fucking Hell, Sean! To give this blog post some context, as we get a few deliveries each month from DPD, they’ve been pestering me to download their new, all-singing, all-dancing app. Anyway, I downloaded the app, updated my details, and gave clear instructions that deliveries should be left in the shed in my back garden …

From The Final Whistle To The Last Straw

I cried after the final whistle blew tonight. I didn’t cry because of the result (cos after what seems like 100 odd years I’m used to England being gallant losers), but because I saw an inconsolable Bukayo Saka being embraced by his family and friends, and I knew what was going to happen next. Just …

In these plague-ridden times when we are now all desperately longing for a return to normality as soon as possible, life’s small wins have become momentous events.

Egg Box Essentials – January 2021 Review

Despite locking myself away in a room for weeks along with piles of records, CDs and hundreds of scraps of paper, I always love compiling my end-of-year Top 30 album chart. The 2020 effort proved especially worthwhile. All the messages, comments and feedback I’ve received since its publication have been genuinely inspiring. Of course, this …

ALBUM REVIEW: Stone Foundation – Is Love Enough? (100% Records)

As I’m a big fan of Stone Foundation and have followed their progress since they released “Small Town Soul” back in 2008, I’m going to start this review with a personal observation… Although Paul Weller produced, wrote for and sang on Stone Foundation’s 2016 album “Street Rituals”, and has been involved to varying degrees with …

2020 – The Acoustic Egg Box Top 30 Albums Of The Year

Photo by Belinda Fewings on Unsplash So, here we are again with the annual rambling bollocks of a man barely in touch with reality, let alone the ability to string a coherent sentence together. You may have noticed that the rampant success of COVID19 in 2020 has been a bit of a pisser on so …
