Advent 2018 Day 12: Queen – Thank God It’s Christmas

Ross posted on our message forum "How come we've not done the obvious one from Queen yet?" Well, because it's so obvious that we overlooked it. Time to address that issue and feature one of the most successful bands of all time in our silly little countdown... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fu3uA8K6ApQ

Festival Review (including bonus Temperance Movement show!): TRNSMT (6th July 2018)

You have to commend the TRNSMT team for their efforts in arranging a festival in the middle of Glasgow. After the inaugural event last year, offering a line-up catering to most tastes and having Biffy Clyro close out proceedings to appease the rock crowd, this year they’ve doubled down on their efforts to give two … Continue reading Festival Review (including bonus Temperance Movement show!): TRNSMT (6th July 2018)

As well as being an incredible version of one of Queen's haunting best, the video is incredible. Rather … Continue reading Classic Covers: 2Cellos – The Show Must Go On

Classic Covers: Aaron Buchanan & The Cult Classics – Love of my Life

As facebook, if not the rest of the world, was very much aware yesterday would have been Freddie Mercury's 70th birthday. 2016 also marks 30 years since that incredible Wembley concert which you can (and should) dig out on YouTube. To mark the former, Aaron Buchanan & The Cult Classics have recorded this version of one of Queen's … Continue reading Classic Covers: Aaron Buchanan & The Cult Classics – Love of my Life
