    Best new band of 2011, a Tamil Nadu-based rock act called Adam & The Fish-Eyed Poets, and they’ve kindly put up their debut album "Snakeism" for free download - and it is definitely among the best debuts I have heard since the Beatles, wonderful songs of classic proportions and fabulous lyrics such as the understated line about the girls "were drinking something of little or no importance".

    Another best new music discovery of recent years – simply don’t go to art school. Thanks to friends Caroline and Julia we have an autographed copy of the album “Musical Couture” (2009), which is perhaps the greatest step forward for pop music since Ziggy Stardust.

    Just in case you haven’t been there, done that, here’s Tom Robinson’s website which shares free advice for aspiring rock stars and – well, excellent source of free music downloads by one of the best musicians of all time.

    Here is the official Un Rodo Cora dotcom, finally up and running, so now you can go play the jukebox and watch their funny videos. Incidentally, I'm doing backing vocals on a track on their latest album "Beijing-Bangalore" from 2012.

    With the Rutles and Bonzo subsections, plus excellent downloads of the legendary comic musician Neil Innes, first seen – well, as far as I know – in the “Magical Mystery Tour” movie by the Beatles, this website must be visited frequently.


     

    http://www.ismoalanko.com/intro/ is the website and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWwK__IpXYY is where you go to see a video from the latest album by ex-Hassisen Kone and ex-Sielun Veljet rock genius Ismo Alanko.
