Lost in the supermarket i am!i love that song by the clash by the way for all yous who dont know it!i’m playing for 2 bands -i work and i blog , im a very busy dude and still i always find loads of things that i want to do and i cant find time for them!i wanna take up phoography soon, i’ve always loved it but never had the time to get into it but this time im gonna go for it and im gonna start of with a Holga camera! My m8 and also drummer in my old band is a photographer and he introduced me to the concept of Holga photography and i immediately liked it! I love the fact that you can dismantle the camera and use your own masks to get the required effect! i know for a fact that most of the pictures could turn out a bit cunted but some of them will be amazing- and you cant get the same effect with digital cameras! Although im majorly into new technologies i still love ANALOG!cant beat it !it feels more lively and real!when something is extremely processed all the life is taken away from it.Don’t get me wrong the digital photography these days is amazing, however i love vintage old school analog photos-and i also love playing vinyl records(random but relevant)! i guess i find the beauty of things in imperfections! I know that this post makes me sound like im not sure about anything!there is a fine line between what i like and what i dont!im all lost in the supermarket@2 #$%^&%%#$@click the pic!

I was recently visited by my good friends from Athens who i used to play in band with before we moved to Scotland. When i was still in Athens my band and my friends band where probably the first acts to play English/American folk music and include instruments like glockspiel-banjo-ukelele etc and we were very proud of that. Anyway i m in a Glasgow based folk band Rose Parade and we had some gigs lined up last August and my friends from Athens played also and it was a great vibe. I remember them telling me that they saw this amazing band in London called Mumford and Sons but i didnt take much notice at the time, but they kept going on about how amazing they are so i had to go and check them out. I only listened to their music about 3 months ago(they ve been playing for at least a year or more as M&S). I fell in love with their music maybe because its exactly the style of music i play. They use a lot of banjos and traditional instuments but the music is not that traditional is sounds really poppy. I cant believe the amount of success and exposure they ve had over the past month! Everybody is talking about them, they are going to be massive which is obviously a good thing for them. However i was always the guy that liked to keep some bands to myself and not share my favourite underground bands with all the scene kids.But i wish them well!Finaly some good music getting out there!
