94 Spotisfaction Wednesday – 4th August 2010 – Dave Prowse

Morning ladies and gents. Quick one for you – as well as one-off pieces, we”™re still looking for people that can regularly contribute to Spotisfaction to come and join our ever-growing team.

  • If you”™re the kind of person that prioritises buying albums or going to gigs over buying food, then come write a few reviews for us.
  • If most of your time is spent in a mammoth Spotify click-through blur, come be one of our playlist crafters.
  • If you spend all day on the Internet trawling music sites, then compile that stuff and chuck us some news.
  • If you spend more time looking through a camera viewfinder than your own eyeballs, be our lensman/woman.
  • If you fancy yourself less grammar Nazi, more grammar Hitler, come help us edit our content.
  • If you can view HTML and PHP like Neo views the Matrix, slip in as our resident grouchy coder.

If you think you may be able to help us out (even if you don”™t think you”™re much of a writer), please get in touch and we”™ll see if we can work something out. Our aim at the moment is to build a team of music-lovers and really concentrate on creating as much worthwhile content as we can. Whatever your skills, come and help us.

Email me at if you”™d like to chat about this stuff, or catch @spotisfaction on Twitter. Love!


Today”™s playlist is by me, and is a nostalgic trip through some of my favourite albums while I was at Uni. Yes, it”™s a bit emo, but I”™m ok with that – we all go through phases! I”™d like to think that my taste is a lot more eclectic these days ;)

I haven”™t really got all that much to say about this one, to be honest. I haven”™t really listened to the vast majority of these guys for years (with the exception of Glassjaw, and the people that know me will know that I have a huge soft spot for them), and I have no idea if any of these bands are still going strong. All I know is that compiling this playlist was a real treat and brought back some pretty good memories.

One band I really wanted to fit into this playlist are Park. Annoyingly, they”™re not on Spotify – a massive pain, since they”™re quite easily my favourite band from that period of my life. They were perhaps the best band that no-one in the scene had ever heard of, which is a shame as they”™ve now broken up. Fortunately, you can listen to their albums on
