Good to see the Dunwells back and they have a new EP ‘The Lucky Ones’ out in May:

Good tune, liking it and this little ditty pulled me into their music:

If you like Tenacious D then the Kyle Gass Band’s self-titled debut album will be right up your street:

Ooooh and a new Kamelot album:

This band always deliver the musical goods, highly recommended.

Marvellous nominated for three BAFTA’s

Good news in that the drama of Neil Baldwin aka Nello’s life story ‘Marvellous’ has been nominated for three BAFTA awards. It has been a hit since being shown on BBC TV and well worth seeing especially if you are a Stoke supporter or know Stoke & Newcastle. A very heart warming tale.

Good news that Steven N’Zonzi is set to have contract extension talks with his current contract running out in 2016. Lot of speculation that Asmir Begovic could be off in the summer with Jack Butland stepping up to be first choice keeper.

Two more cracking albums…Five Grand Stereo and the Darker My Horizon

Posted in Modern rock, Music for 2015, Pop rock with tags , , , , , , on April 4, 2015 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Five Grand Stereo have just release their rather fine debut album ‘Sex & Money’. The line-up features Chris Singleton, whose solo work is a feast of quality pop rock tunes. ‘A sheer delight from start to finish’.

The Darker My Horizon’s debut album ‘Acquiesce’ is a modern rock album and features Paul Stead and Mark Stephenson, both formerly of melodic rockers Sacred Heart. This is a more metal edged affair still packed with melodies though.

The Robot Overlords are finally here…

The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake:

Go and see this movie folks. Worked with one of the writers Mark Stay during my days at Orion and very pleased his script has finally reached the big screen.

Originally posted on unusually tall stories:

On 13th July 2010* I received an email from Director Jon Wright with the subject heading ‘Two page idea attached’. In it he outlined a movie idea that had come to him in a dream: a world where humanity had been defeated by an invading alien robot empire and everyone is ordered to stay inside their homes. Back then it was called OUR ROBOT OVERLORDS. Some of those ideas have survived through to the finished film, some have fallen by the wayside and others could still be used in potential sequels or TV series, but already the world felt strong enough to start bouncing ideas back and forth and start working on a script.

And so ROBOT OVERLORDS was born, and a mere four years, eight months and fourteen days later it’s in UK cinemas for the public to see. That’s pretty fast for an independent British movie.

Mark Hughes has signed a new contract with Stoke City until 2019. Great news for the club and fans.

Chairman Peter Coates has also revealed the summer priorities are to have N’Zonzi and Begovic sign new deals, along with signing Victor Moses permanently.

Peter Odemwingie could make the subs bench soon as he aims to return after his long term injury. Be great if he gets a goal on his comeback.
