New Adventures in Hi-Fi

I’ve often wished after watching a great film or reading a great book that I could wipe my memory and enjoy it with fresh eyes and ears, be surprised once again by the plot twists and shock endings and be left with that warm satisfied feeling all over again. Little did I realise that actuallyContinue reading “New Adventures in Hi-Fi”

Candi’s Dog is for life, not just for Christmas

The big day is almost upon us and some lucky people will wake up to find that Father Christmas has left a Candi’s Dog CD under the tree. Others will sit by a roaring fire and warmly reminisce of the happy times they spent listening to Candi’s Dog in 2014.

Matthew’s Mid-Month Moustache Memorandum

I love you Ricky!

This week the topic of our blog is love, and there is no greater love than that between a man and his guitar.

Week after week he’d trawlContinue reading “I love you Ricky!”

Happiness is a Warm Turntable

During a recent refurbishment of a room in my house I came across my record player, which had been resting unloved with junk in a cupboard. Left alone in the house, with only tidying or decorating to do, I naturally ignored both of these tasks, promptly set up the turntable and spent the afternoon listeningContinue reading “Happiness is a Warm Turntable”
