Band of the week 27th March 2010

I like to see bouncing charts, as it becomes a real reflection of what resonates around the world and this weeks chart sees Paul Liddell take the top slot. I will get a chance to see Paul in the next few weeks and I look forward to it.

I make an occasional comment on the other placings and we can all see The Drums falling out of the charts for the first time since September caused a hiatus as they re-enter. The band who I have enormous respect for are Kabul Dreams who really are singing out of Kabul in Afghanistan and I am still trying to hook up an interview, who re-appear at number 2 on the chart.

Sometimes I get sad, you know that.

There are some great bands on the chart, I just worry about where the PR agents and Managers head off, I don’t think you will ever see one of these bands playing this intimacy again and two are run by managers, who I do believe are just in it for the income. I’ll talk about it another day, not me to call, the readers choose the chart, not I. It is sad to see bands not being allowed to present themselves, for the sake of publicity shots and income. I hope to get some under the skin interviews coming up soon (If I can fly under the PR radar).
