It's up (again) [18 Aug 2010|09:33am]

It seems like only a few posts ago I was in uk_indie, pointing out that the new issue of my webzine is now up.

Well, here we go again - because the new issue of my webzine is now up.

Here's the traditional Really Big Banner. Click it to go to the front page...then go anywhere you fancy. And spread the word, Thunderbird.

Beta testing is now done and dusted. I think I've fixed all the outstanding glitches. Famous last words, there, of course. If you find anything that doesn't work, let me know...

Can we have some more drums in the monitors, please? [06 Jun 2010|09:02am]

Another big update has happened on the London Gigs website...

All the London gigs you need to know about are in there somewhere (and if you know about any that aren't in there, by all means send in the info).

Scroll through the listings and you can see which ones are recommended by me...and by various other fanzines and music industry in outsiders.

I was just reading through everybody else's recommendations, and it occurred to me that while most of the other gig-recommenders tend to write fairly standard promotional blurb, my stuff veers towards ironic asides and smart-arse sarkiness. I didn't realise I was doing this until my words appeared on the site alongside everyone else's. I'll be getting into trouble about that one day, you wait and see. Still, at least you know it's me.

Anyway, there you have it. Boot up, log in...go out.

Selftaught Art Exhibition [10 Jan 2010|05:46pm]

Hi everybody!
In February I'm going to organize an exhibition of self-taught art in my Garage. It's not too big, but there's enough place for lots of drawings, sculptures, even a performance. It will last for one week and everyday there will be a special party, which will be filmed. If you are a self-taught artist and you create crazy psychodelic works the help of your unconscious and you are interested in participation in the exhibition, please, leave your comments or email me ( alinaliman@gmail.com). I will exhibit my works too! The aim of the action is to gather creative people for possible future projects (films, gigs, art performances)

Nemesis To Go issue 8 is up [09 Dec 2009|09:48am]

The new issue of my webzine, Nemesis To Go, is up now and ready to eat.

It's a big cake, and it's got lots of wholesome ingredients, and only a few harmful chemicals. It contains plenty of post-punkers, art-punkers, and a few plain old punkers. Sundry dispatches from the front line of London's new new wave and beyond...

This banner gives you the visual version. Click it to go to the zine:

As ever, if you find any broken links or other glitches, let me know and I'll sort 'em out.

Spread the word, Thunderbird.

CD Review [20 Oct 2009|01:16am]

Eureka Machines - Everyone Loves You

1. Everyone Loves You
2. The Bigger They Are, The Harder They Fall
3. The Story Of My Life (live acoustic session)
4. Scream Eureka (live on BBC Introducing Raw Talent)

This Saturday I popped down to the record fair at The Brudenell Social Club (literally 30 seconds away from my front door!).

Aside from picking up a shed load of cheap limited edition Mission records (Deliverance box set with poster, Deliverance 10", SEALED Wasteland 7" boxed set) and a best of Blondie (with a poster of Debbie Harry looking hot as hell, Claire now has some competition) I managed to knab a Eureka Machines CD Single from the Wrath Records stall (Wrath records are a Leeds based Indie label that mostly releases music by The Scaramanga Six and the Eureka Machines).

The aforementioned Scaramanga Six have recently opened my eyes to the joy of cleverly done rock music, which if I'm perfectly honest, I mostly find bland and uninspiring compared to most of the more post punk type stuff. Eureka Machines are a real fix for this new found musical interest. It's straight up rock with a heavy twist of pop and a dash of anthemic punk - but don't let that put you off. Here's what I thought...

The single opens with well...the single... as you'd expect. It comes in straight away with a big fat drum roll, a whoosh and a riff worth cracking out your air guitar for. So far so good. For me, the thing that makes this song is the wonderful the alternation between ballsy shout along rock and the excellent disco-esque hook that precedes the chorus. Its a song that will make you both want to wave your fist in the air and to shake your tail feather. Well, they've caught my attention and I already feel like I've got my £3's worth.

Having listened to this single about 10 times today I still can't find anything interesting to say about the second track. The opening guitar line sounds a lot like the kind of thing Wayne Hussey would have cracked out circa 1987, which is great, if somewhat ironic. Sadly the song itself doesn't entice me. Moving on...

A live acoustic session? I'm already on guard, being the type of person that sometimes equates "acoustic" with "boring". I couldn't have been more wrong - The Story Of My Life is bloody wonderful. It provides a great bit of contrast to the title track and while remaining equally (if not more) interesting. "This the story, the story of my flipping life" they lament in a resigned way. Not near bad enough to actually swear about, but just about depressing enough to heave a sigh over. The whole thing has a slightly depressing, slightly tongue in cheek and totally believable feeling to it that sort of reassures me immensely.

Scream Eureka is quite a nice bit of musical flag waving. "Hello world - we're Eureka Machines" is the line that closes the EP, and this is pretty much what the entire song says from start to finish, in fact; right from the opening cry of "don't ignore us/people bore us/open wide and sing the chorus".

With any luck I'll be getting a taste of the live show at their Leeds gig on November 13th.

For the third triumphant year... [21 Aug 2009|11:37am]

[ mood | weird ]

...the ultimate guerrilla festival, WAR IN THE PARK returns.

It shall occur in an unspecified park in London on Bank Holiday Sunday 30 August 2009 from 2pm onwards.

There are over a dozen amazing acts performing - details up on Facebook.

The way to find out where it shall be is as follows:

1. Say you are attending on the Facebook event
2. Wait
3. Two days before the WAR the event shall be made secret, so if you're not down as attending, you won't be able to see it any more
4. An email shall be sent to attendees as to the location

See you on the other side....
