Good evening sir.
There really arenâ€™t enough hours in the day. I, like so many others, have a day job. A day job that has grown dull and uninspiring. This is part of the reason David and I started Spotisfaction. The problem now is, I spend so much time listening to your awesome submissions, hearing some new and fantastic music (as well as going out and checking out live music) that i donâ€™t have enough time to read up on the latest news, check out other peoples music blogs or anything like that. Iâ€™m starting to think that I need to do something music related as a profession. If anyone has any ideas, let me know.
So today then. David and I were browsing what to put up today, weâ€™ve got some quality submissions and weâ€™re trying to make them varied on a day to day basis. Being a Friday, seeing that the sun is out and Iâ€™m not feeling 100% healthy at the moment, I needed something uplifting. Something that would rock out and wash over any bad vibes I had about today. I knew when I saw my favourite Breeders track on Battinâ€™s playlist that we would be running his today. So here it is and I hope youâ€™re going to enjoy it.

This time I thought Iâ€™d go back to my guitar roots after my previous Hip Hop outingâ€¦ This list is a mixture of guitar rock, none of it too heavy but I felt a good mix of styles from heavy fuzzing Detroit blues, classic rock, deep desert rock and in between.
All the artists in this list Iâ€™ve got a deep respect for their overall sound and energy, yes even the mighty Quo which manage to sneak in as I like to keep it dynamic and I think they are hard done by reputation wise. Turn on, Tune In, Crank it up to 11 and most of allâ€¦.
