Yep we are officially five years old. Hard to believe really but we’re pretty happy to still be around writing about albums and gigs, interviewing musicians and generally spreading the word about music that we love. That has been the mantra from the start, to focus on the music, trust our taste and instinct and hope that others out there will share our enthusiasm for the same sounds.
We’ve cracked 600 followers on Facebook in the last few days which is a nice achievement and this week DS and our Americana blog Post To Wire are amongst the finalists in the music blog category of the Pedestrian.TV Ultrabook Blogster Awards. It is the second year running that DS has made the shortlist and that in itself is something we’re proud of. Other than that it has been a real thrill to interview some of my favourite musicians including members of Velvet Underground, Radiohead, Wilco, The Stooges, Dirty Three, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, The Chills, The Clean, The Afghan Whigs and The Cult.
Thanks to everyone who has helped out DS, read, shared and commented on our posts.
Five years gone, many more to come…
